Warm Wishes

Today may have been the warmest day of the year so far-I recorded 94F. I am liking it other than the fact we have had horrible storms the last few days, we lost power and even with a surge protector, I thought my computer was fried. It restarted in safe mode but still.... heart attack as it's really my lifeline to anything outside my four walls. A lot of streets are flooded as I measured 4+ inches so far and more is on the way. Naturally, the dogs are spazzed. Marley won't go outside even when the sun is shining and he alerts me to anything rumbling like dump trucks, late night trains thru downtown and has to join me in the shower, toilet trips and even in and out of the kitchen. Can we say neurotic?

I found this card in my files and honestly I can't remember when I made it but I still haven't uploaded the ones I made this summer, so this is what you get. I used Tim Holtz Distress Stickles on this to try and make the lantern look old and kinda garage sale like. I am still on the limb about these Distress Stickles and one of the reasons is to me it's clumpy. I love the Distress inks and powders but these are not my first go to for Stickles. This card just didn't photograph well to me. I think both these images were from Great Impressions but can't find them in my file box so don't hold me to it.

I will be getting my blog candy out this week to lucky winner Sue B. I have also prepared a couple more envelopes with a surprise for a couple of posters, they just aren't expecting them. Right now I need to find an envelope and then my heating pad. Yes, even at 80F, I still use my heating pad. I don't think it helps but it's all I got at this point. Talk with ya later , peeps.


Thank you for stopping by and sitting a spell with me and mine. I hope you take away a smile!
