Bad Day/Worse Day

Everyone has a bad day ever so often but it seems like lately when I have one, I go all out and have a worse day!  Yesterday as I was trying to publish a comment that someone made on my last post, I hit something wrong and it removed the content from all the previous comments.  UGH!!!  Carol sent me a link to be able to get back the comments and it didn't work because of how I receive my comments or something.  Technical garbage basically.  So, is what it is now and I'm sorry if you commented and it's no longer showing. 

Next up was doing a little coloring on an image.  Ran out of ink while using the Copic, got it all refilled, and realized I'd used the wrong refill on it so that bit the dust.  Another big UGH!  I really wanted to use that pen so decided to run to Michael's and just pick up another one until I could run all the ink out of the one I messed up. 

Ok...........I had to go next door to Petsmart for a particular item anyway so off I went.  Got the pen and headed to Petsmart.  Now, I love animals and being in Petsmart is sorta like being in heaven.  Maybe not so much when you have to smell the dog food and all that but whatever.  I wandered around in there for a good hour just looking at everything (and of course picking up way too much and sticking it in the cart).  Got home and got everything unloaded and nope, didn't get what I initially went there for.   Figures and so typical. 

Then I decided to go ahead and enter my last card in the challenges I listed.  One went through fine....the other one came up with all this mess about inlink or linkedin , social media, needing a login and password.............DUH!  Never had one before for that so guess I need it now.  Started adding that in and this big sign comes up and says it's not secure and basically everyone in the world is going to know who you are and probably what kind of undies you wear too!  EEPPPPP!!  I scooted out of there in a hurry.  What's the deal with all that anyway? 

Now that I've written a small essay, there's my card................what can I say except Ha, Ha, HA!

Thanks for stopping by..........and have a good weekend.

Where's The Critter

I know this is coming as a big shock - no critter!  I should have added a little butterfly to make it more of a Lynn card I guess.  Every so often I guess it's good to go with something different though.  All the stamps used on here are from WPlus9.  Love the wood background stamp and that wreath.  So many ways you could decorate the wreath - even for Christmas.  The sketch I used was one from Newton's Nook a while back and I really like it too.

I've been laying low on the weekends and in case you haven't noticed and haven't been by to comment on cards then.  This may be the new norm as it gives me a chance to maybe create a little bit and do other things too.  

Also, the oldest granddaughter is graduating in 2 weeks.  Holy Moly!!!!!  I've never seen so much activity and going on's!  When we graduated we basically showed up for the ceremony (and didn't even want to do that).  Not anymore.....parties every night, awards ceremonies, more parties, and more ceremonies.  It's a never ending story.  At least I've been contributing some.......I've made over 130 thank you cards for her to send out........  also about 30 tags to add to gifts and that type of thing.  So I haven't just been sluffing off and not creating anything.

I'll enter this in the Tuesday Throwdown challenge (frame it)and Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets).

Flamingo Fad

I wandered into one of the local hobby stores the other day and it's filled with flamingos!  They're everywhere.  I was almost blinded from all the pink - and legs.  So, what do you do but come home and make a flamingo card!  Makes sense doesn't it!  Ugh!

The image and sentiment are from a MFT stamp set.  Did a little sponging through a stencil behind the bird and then popped on a couple of clouds - because I could.  I put all this on some card stock I've had for a long time  It's shiny and to be honest, not the greatest in the world.  Really light weight.  So after I made this, I grabbed some good card stock and made another one.  Probably by the time these get mailed for birthdays the flamingo fad will be long gone.  On well.........

Fantasy Seahorse - 2 Crafty Critter Crazies

Fun seahorse today for our 2 Crafty Critter Crazies challenge this month.  Come on over and enter your card or other project.  All you have to include on it is a critter of some type on it.

The seahorse image I used is from Frabika Fantasy, who is the sponsor for our challenge this month.  For the actual image I used Copics and colored pencils.  Nothing fancy, but think he looks pretty cool.  For the background blue, I used some blue and purple alcohol ink - sorta dribbling it on and then moving it around with a brush.  You never know what kind of background you're going to get using the ink that way.  Fun technique.

Thanks for stopping by.........and be sure and enter the challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.

Quack, Cluck, Honk, Whatever..........Beep?

Not sure if this is a quacker, clucker, or honker - but know it's not a beep, beep, zoomer.  Although by looking at his face he's probably confused on exactly what he is too.  Oh My Gosh!!!!  Is this a Fun Friday or what!!!  It's been a while since I did one of those. 

I do love the funny images and as soon as I saw this from Katzalkraft - and quit laughing - it immediately went in the check out cart.  This is just one of the images in the set and the entire set makes me laugh out loud.  I thought the sentiment was appropriate too for who I'm sending it to.  She's a little confused most of the time and probably has been since she was born so it fits perfect!  What am I saying.............I'M the one that's usually confused!!! 

I followed the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches so will enter this in their challenge.

Thanks for stopping by..............and have a fun Friday!

This was a card I actually made toward the end of last year and I would say it's gathering dust here but it was sent right after I snapped the photo.   As far as what I used on it......gosh, your guess is as good as mine probably.

I'm certain I used a Mama Elephant sentiment.  After that, it's possible I used some MFT images and a die from Lawn Fawn.  Just can't remember all the details on this and yes, before you even ask....I'm too lazy to go look it all up.  So, we'll just say it's a card and it was fun to create and hopefully fun to open too. 

...and I feel like I used enough snippets so am going to enter it in Pixie's Crafty Workshop!  I never feel like I use enough snippets there but I did on this one.

Thanks for stopping by..........
