The topic: This year’s Springtime cards


And this will catch me up. Here are all of the cards I made to send out for spring.

All cards are from SVGCuts.com. The first one is from the Springtime Box Cards SVG Kit.

I really had fun with this one. If you look at the bigger picture (clicking on a picture will take you to a bigger photo in my family album; clicking on that picture will open a larger photo.), you might be able to see that some of the pieces are flocked. Part of the branches and the eggs. I got this paper over on Scrapbook.com. This was the best price I could find for it. I also used this paper on the stocking cards that were in last year's Christmas cards

I brushed an ink pad along the sides of the eggs to give them a little depth of color.

The stamps I used were from Kaisercraft, Rubbernecker Stamps, Inkadinkado and Inky Antics.

The following three cards are from the Easter Box Cards Kit.

Bunny ears and noses are flocked paper. The eyes are tiny round halfback beads I got on eBay. I have tons of these things, different colors and sizes. I buy the ones from China. They take a while to get here, but they're really cheap and nice to have on hand. The "celebrate spring!" sentiment was written on cardstock and cut out using the Cameo 3.

That's a little white pom pom for his tail. Keeeyoot!

The flowers and nose are flocked paper. The eyes are tiny black beads.

And that's it!  All of the cards I've made so far this year. I need to make more. I have the ones picked out I want to make, now I have to pick out the paper. The toughest part.

The topic: Did you see the movie “Failure to Launch”


It's an older movie about parents (Kathy Bates and Terry Bradshaw) trying to get their adult son (Matthew McConaughey) to move out of the house.

Sarah Jessica Parker is the person who is going to get him to move out (it's her job, she's paid to do this). She has a roommate, Zooey Deschanel.

Zooey's character is having a hard time sleeping. Because of a mockingbird that won't shut up.

That's me. In front of the house, there is a mockingbird that sings all night long. All. Night. Long. Every night.

It doesn't start singing until I'm fast asleep. I go to bed, blissful silence. I wake up in the middle of the night to pee (I've done this since I was a young child and got spanked for bedwetting). I get back in bed and that damned bird is singing the song of his people. And I can't get back to sleep.

Earlier in the week, I'd taken a sleep aid. That worked, but it got to the point that I was dragging all day long, so I decided to forgo the pill. And I'm dragging today.

I ended up on the sofa because I couldn't hear the bird in the family room. The bed is way more comfortable.

I sure hope he finds himself a lady friend, and quick.
