I'm back from vacation and we had a great time. You do need a vacation from vacation to rest though. After I got home and unpacked, I took a nap. Poor Molly slept for 4 1/2 hours and did not wake when I got crackers out of a package and ate in the same room as her. It was a lot of walking and fresh air and staying up late. We, (meaning Molly and I), still got up at 6:30.  Not my choice, but she has to go out. Since it wasn't fenced I had to walk her and with all those wonderful new smells we walked a lot! I was able to get some new goodies at the stamp store so I was happy. We never turned on the tv or looked at any news. It was such a great treat.

This is a card we made at the SU class. I didn't put a sentiment on it yet since it could be used for many things. It is a telescope card and so easy to do. I'll be glad to get back into my normal groove and make some cards soon.

I'll be back to visiting as soon as I get laundry done and rested up. Be kind to one another.

I was without internet this morning for four hours and it seemed like I was cut off from the world! I contacted Comcast after turning off the computer and unplugging the modem. Those are my computer skills, then I call. Now I'm back on and a happy camper.

I would like to welcome Mac Mable as a new follower. I hope you pop in and say hi if you don't already know her. That's why you can't be without internet - you meet such great people.

This is a card we made at SU class. I love the pattern paper and cute design. The colors make me happy and I've got several birthday's coming up so I was happy to make this. Be kind to one another.

Happy 4th of July. I hope you all have a happy, safe holiday. Those of you in the intense heat, please stay cool. Be kind to one another.

Two quick little things today. The Zig glue pen I used for the napkin has a very thick nub that covers a card panel quickly. There is another smaller one that would work but take a long time to do. Also, I wanted to tell you about my entry for the tree Twofer. Several people mentioned the purple rain on it. I made it as a tribute to Prince using purple rain and the sentiment Missing You.  That's why the purple rain on the card. Be kind to one another.

I have survived  the heat by staying in this weekend and it has cooled off a bit today. Had two pop up rainstorms this morning that were quick but watered the flowers. I'm glad for the reprieve so I can run a few errands.

I received a fun package from my friend, Mia, in the mail. I loved the silver corners she sent in my win so she popped a few more to me in a lovely hand made coin purse. The silver ones are gorgeous but those copper filigree ones are so beautiful. The coin purse will be one I carry because it is big enough to actually get something in. Thanks, Mia.

Today's card was made with a napkin. I used my Zig two way thick point glue pen over a piece of cardstock then smoothed the cut napkin over it. I peeled the backing sheet off of it first. I love how easy it was to do and if I hadn't smeared the ink before it dried on the greeting I would have been much happier. This was so fun and so easy and you know how many napkin choices there are out there. You could become addicted. There's probably an app for that. Be kind to one another and happy July. Can't believe the year is half over.

We are in the midst of a heatwave this week and boy is it hot! Heat advisory of 105-115. I can't imagine being out in that.

This is a quick and easy card made with a free Blossom Spray Tonic die. The sentiment is Stampin Up from a garage sale find. Sometimes you just need a quick card. Be kind to one another and if you are in this heat, stay cool. It is over a large part of the country and dangerous.

I have a new addition to my crafting family. I am having pain in my wrists and elbows and am afraid carpal tunnel is sneaking up on me. In case I become incapacitated  and cannot turn the handle on my Big Shot, I purchased a Gemini Jr. on sale and she came to live with me Friday. I hope we have a long, happy relationship. Be kind to one another.
