For You

Well, I did it. I took advantage of some down time to put my HM card together. Papa took the kids to the Naval Air Museum, the moms were visiting and feeding babies, and KrB stole away to her "happy place" and created her card. I got to use the new Tangerine Tango from the 2008 In-Color collection. I also used my new Basic Grey's "Ambrosia". I used a piece of Lemon Tart from PaperTrey Ink and colored Mudpie and Monica with Prisma Color pencils. I sponged the image lightly with Sahara Sand. I embellished it with brads and a flower. My sentiment comes from SU's Fresh Cuts and the image is HM's "Sweet Find". That was a therapeutic session for me - it usually is - and I've got something to post besides just an explanation. Now until Saturday, I'll probably be occupied with our 8 grandkids. On Thursday we're hoping to get some great pictures of the 3 babies and then all of the kids. I can't imagine getting a great picture of 3 babies aged 2, 4, and 6 months, but that's why I chose a very seasoned photographer for the job. I'm very hopeful we'll get a great Christmas card out of this session. Thanks for taking a look. Hugs, KrB

Not blown away

Just wanted to let you know that I did not blow away in Gustav......my craft room has been taken over by two monsters ages 9 and 12. While I could get in there to stamp amidst the clothes and suitcases and sometimes wet swimming towels, I have enjoyed spending time with my family while they're here and have not worked on cards. That's not to say I don't miss it, because that goes without saying any day of the week. And I am still checking my favorite blogs, sales, etc. I even get to leave a comment now and then. I'm trying to figure out in my head what to do for this week's HM Monday Challenge, and I haven't even got to play with my new stamps from Flourishes, Sweet and Sassy or SU!,. Oh, that's so pitiful! But my family lives in California and it's so rare that they get to come here that they're going to take priority and I'll have lots of time - well,......time - when they leave. Just wanted to tell you all hi and Happy Tuesday, and I will return soon. Hugs, KrB
