What a face! Isn't she the cutest beach baby you've seen today? Beach baby is a freebie that I ran across several weeks ago. I know that the company that made it was using it to make cards for someone who was very ill. Other then that, I'm at a lose as to where it came from. Please let me know if you know so I can give credit where credit is due for the digi. I love the big bright bold bathing suit. This gal is not afraid to show it off! The paper is from a DCWV pad I bought in the Spring. Ribbon is SU.
Yesterday turned out to be a decent day except for the rain! I sold 2 cards and after I put gas in Barry's car, we went to Red Lobster for early dinner or late lunch, which ever you want to call it. Barry had one card left that the kids gave him for Father's Day. It was a nice treat. After I put gas in his car, we had a total of 7.51 left to our name, so a free meal was heaven sent! I pray I sell some more cards today so we can make it through the weekend. Barry's SS check doesn't come until Wednesday and that seems like a long way off. But I know we'll be ok and somehow make it.
Today might be Barry's last day of school. He still hasn't found out. I don't know what's going to happen. He did talk with the sales manger of the school yesterday about a job. They are looking for someone to market the classes. I know he could do that. He's going to meet with him again today. I think it would be an ok job for him, but to see the whole year of training wasted makes me want to cry. Crying seems to be something I'm getting good at myself. I am so ready for the good life to happen!
My plans for today are few. Watch a little TV. The darn DVR calls me and I listen to what it says too much, but it does take you away from the real world and that's not all bad. I should work on some cards. I need to keep restocking my pile in the ebay store. I swear they keep getting prettier and prettier everyday! Someone asked about how much paper I have in my stash that I'm able to make so many different ones. Truth be told, I have a HUGE stash of printed papers! I've been making cards for over 10 years and collecting as long. I have drawers full of paper and shelves too, but there is always a new piece calling my name when I go to the LSS! Funny how that happens!
Have a wonderful day!


  1. Oh Paula this is amazing! I love how this gal isn't worried about how she looks but is confident and not afraid to strut her stuff! You go froggy girl! Lol! Love everything about it. That bow is wonderful! So glad to hear that maybe Barry may get a job! Something is on it's way. I am sorry to hear about all the tears. Praying that they won't fall for many more days sweetie. Hugs.

  2. What a fun card! I love the image and the colors and papers you chose are fabulous! Red Lobster sounds good. We're having pizza tonight. A friend gave us 5 coupons for buy one get one free at a take and bake place that has fabulous pizzas. It's in the high 80s so I hate to run the oven but it'll bake up quick. Have a great weekend!!!
