And everything is wet outside right now! I want to run outside naked and do the happy rain dance, but I don't want to scare the children in the neighborhood! Not a pretty picture, I guess! Oh well. I guess I'll have to tell you about my card instead! I'm diggin the way it turned out. Really! The paper is from an old Making Memories pad. You know one of those that for some reason we "had to have"! I think I was going to do some travel pages for a scrapbook, but as you, scrapbooking is never high on the list. I used bits of the paper for this card. It's hard to tell, but there is a "postcard" piece of paper that I used to give the feel of mail to the card. The image is from Heather Ellis. She's the lady that does the designs for MFT clear stamps. The little "ticket" is from the same set of stamps I used on the snowman yesterday. I love these little things!
For the next 3 days we're going to have Madelyn during the daylight hours. It's the week between camp ending and school starting. Since both her parents work, the grands get the child. We love having her. At least I do. I never know what Grandpa is thinking! I know we'll have fun with her no matter. Only problem is the TV in the living room isn't working. She comes way before Barry gets up in the morning. Maybe she'll want to craft instead!
I'm so excited. A dear person asked me to take on a coloring job! I know that might not sound like fun to everyone, and that's why I have the job, but I love to color images and she thought of me. I'll make a little extra money (is there anything like "extra"?), and it will be fun! Card selling seems to have picked up a little as well. If I could only make them faster---well maybe later in the month, like when it cools down below 100!
I'm off to see about dinner. Barry works until 8. We're having chicken and something!
Love to you all.
