Super Heroes

Y'all already know I love our little Rambo, but I actually love all animals!  Something that's dear to my heart are animal shelters and rescue groups -  and all the people involved in them - from the donors, volunteers, and foster parents, to all the wonderful people that adopt the animals.  They truly ARE heroes and it's time to give them all a big thank you!   They give each one of the animals so much love and care and there's so many animals that need that.   Jim always tells me that if it were possible I'd take in every four footed creature I could find.  I probably would if I just had  room for all of them but since Rambo's the complete boss in this house, I'm not real sure how that would go over.   

Last week Connie mentioned a new (to me) challenge called Sending Paw Prints.  Of course I had to scoot over there (and enter my card) and see what it was all about.   I can't think of a nicer cause and a better place to send cards I make when they involve animals and thank you's.   Please go over to Karen's challenge blog and check it out.....and bless her heart for doing this.

Simple card.........Newton's Nook stamp and sentiment along with a Memory Box die. 

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

I Made A Card!!!

Believe it or not, I'm here - and yes, I even made a card.  I won't comment on the quality of this card at all, but hey it's done and I'm posting it!  Such is life...........

I was unloading all the boxes in the craft room and found this scrap of Kraft paper.  Found my colored pencils, and another piece of cardstock!  WhooHoo!  I'm on a roll.  So, stopped with the unpacking and decided it was time to just take a break and color.  The image I used is from Newton's Nook.  Simple card since I couldn't find much of anything else but after finding the twine and dies, I got it colored and all ready to go.........and then couldn't find the paper cutter to do anything else so it all sat there for a couple of days.  Groan!  Finally found the paper cutter yesterday and cut away.  Also found a red heart.  Now granted there's no red on this card so why I added a red heart I have no idea other than the fact, I found it and used it -  so we'll deal with that.  Then found the die and cut out one in blue too and added it.  I mean, why not!

Ok, now I'm really rocking and rolling.  Camera, charger, and cord for the camera - check!  Adding it to Blogger in order to post - not so good.  It was an all morning affair.  It's amazing how you forget what you've done for so long but with some help from a cheat sheet, here it is.

The reasoning behind the Kraft and colored pencils (which I will say is NOT my cup of tea at all) is because of a challenge Darnell is having celebrating several things in her life.  Because Darnell is such a sweetie, I figured I'd at least toss this in the mix and enter.  Check out her challenge. I'll also enter this in the Inky Paws Challenge (to use a heart).

Everything else is going ok right now.  We are finally moved in - correction.......everything is in the house.  As far as putting it where it belongs and little things like that, it could be a while.  A LONG while.  I think Jim will be a happy little camper once I get the sheets off the windows and hang the curtains!    Just hanging in there and hoping that 2017 is a much better year for us.

Anyway.............thanks for stopping by and I'll try to be back soon.
