Wow, Tater, that is wonderful!! I know you are all thrilled - and there is nothing like getting to love on a new baby!! God bless Zoran!!

I am going to be late again with my card - over the weekend sometime - have a busy day ahead here - going to see Phyllis today - and see how she is doing since her daughter "threw her out of the house" - she is now living with her sister, so I will find out how her state of mind is - she has been very upset trying to absorb all that has happened in her life - I miss having her right around the corner!! Then, scrapbooking tonight with my gals for a couple hours!!

Lesley I'm sorry you are having problems with a grown step son. Maybe it's time for tough love. Send him on his way if he can't contribute to the home and the family except for in a negative way. Leaving in the middle of the night can't be a good thing. I will pray for you all. I think most of us have been touched by this type of trouble in our lives at times. It stinks! Love you and sending you a big cyber hug.

Tater congrats! That is a very unique name.

Had to get on here to check the challenge this week. I thought I knew but had to check. I'm sorry I have not been very faithful in the challenges lately. It's a hard time of the year to fit it all in.

Default In regard to August Challenge list...

August 2013 challenge list

Here is the August Challenge List:

Aug 2 - Jill
Aug 9 - Tater
Aug 16 - Lesley
Aug 23 - Silly
Aug 30 - Jan

Sylvia...I think it was you who asked what next week's challenge is...
I didn't see it posted anywhere...But it looks like it's Lesley's turn...

Tater congrats on the new baby in the family...that's good news.

And Sue, in regard to the card that I posted this week for the "beach" challenge...the lighthouse is six layers...I probably should have posted that in my description. I know I'm a Layer kind of girl. I like cards with layers!
Don't like the postage I have to pay to send them.

Hope everyone has a good weekend.

Blessings,
Jill

Hi Riders! Lesley asked me to present this Friday's challenge. TSC0816 is the keyword.

Think Back to School, think apples, notebooks, pens, pencils, crayons...any school supplies, little red school house, school mascots, school colors, school bus. Just be inspired by the school theme. Stretch your imaginations!!!

Greenie, how long does it take you to get to King Of Prussia mall?

Jill, how long does it take you?

I was thinking that maybe we could all meet there for lunch sometime on a Saturday or Sunday. Waddya think?

It takes me about 40-45 minutes.

Hey, Lesley!! Great idea!! It takes me between 45 min to an hour depending on traffic (my DD's estimate, since she works out that way) You would have to tell me where to meet you, and she can probably tell me how to get there. You, Jill and I need to discuss the date though - I still do card classes and my hostess club on Sundays - so I would have to work around those days - email me !!!

Well, the saga of Marky continues......he has been gone since Saturday, didn't talk to him until today. He came home long enough to ask to 'borrow' $20.00. Then, he took off again! Ai-yi-yi!!!

On a happy note, my Justin is now staying at his dad's 5 nights a week and next week he starts living there full time!!! He will still have to check in at the halfway house once a week in person and he has a 10 o'clock curfew at his dads, where they call a land line to check on him. BUT, no more living with a bunch of other guys!!! He was so happy today when he called me!!! He will be tied to the halfway house until May 2014. God has been so good to him....this has really taught him some patience. (Me, too!).

Thanks so much for your prayers for our boys! They are both 31 now.....hard to believe! They were just babies a few years ago!!!!!!!

Hi Lesley!!

Marky still sounds like a problem that needs prayer - not good that he disappears for days and only comes back when the "Bank of Mom and Dad" is open for withdrawals. You need prayers to know what the best way to handle that is, and YOU GOT THEM!!

Justin - wow, that is such good news!! Hope the staying at his Dad's, fosters and strengthens his new good habits, and gives him a sense of belonging, not like living at the halfway house. Praying for him to stay on the straight and narrow path, walking with the Lord!!

Don't forget to email me with some possible dates to meet up - hope we can work it out!!

Hugs

I forget what the challenges are and who's up to bat...etc...LOL

This sounds like a great idea...except for one thing...
I'm not much of a driver...If I have to go for a longer distance than 5 miles from my house...I won't drive...

Possibly my Jim would drive me...or maybe I could talk my crafting buddies to come along...If that would be okay? You both met them at the stamp shows.

Oh, as for distance...I'm guessing about a 45 minute drive...as the crow flies it would be about 30 minutes...but there always so much traffic in that direction which makes it take longer.

I almost forgot it was my turn for the challenge. Let's do a card using a water coloring. The technique is your choice. This is for the 8-23 challenge.

That sounds good - I just did one for the DTGD week for Lydia's Challenge and I needed one more card for my class, so guess what they are getting?? LOL Does spritzing water count??

Thanks for the challenge, Sylvia! I've never really tried water color before.....hmmmm....this will really be a challenge for me! Looking forward to it!

Ryan has foot surgery on Friday, to lengthen a tendon. Well, he did real well Saturday and yesterday it was really beginning to hurt him. Today, he woke me up at 7:00 to ask for crutches cuz it hurt so. I guess the anesthesia was so good that he was still feeling NO PAIN on Saturday! Heehee! Poor kid! Can't drive until at least the 27th. So, Mama's taxi service is back "In Order"! LOL!

Hey, just thought of something....is watercoloring the same thing as getting ink on the lid of an SU! ink pad and using the blender pen to color with?

Watercolouring is when you use watercoloring whatever, ink on lid, blender pen with the refills, markers, watercolour pencils, I use copics...which is alcohol ink...cause I can't water colour very well.....

But will give that a try......

p.s...I don't copic colour very well either.....lolol

Bless your heart, Les, for the MOM'S TAXI SERVICE!


And yep, Jan steered you right - you can color with ink in the lid, or watercolor pencil or crayons with an aquapainter (or a wet paint brush) or spritz the paper and drop ink on to it and either brush it across or let it RUN - check for some ideas in the resource tutorial under watercoloring!!

Night, all!!

Hi Sistahs! Life has been so busy!!! Gunner retired and are we having fun. Spending time together and just doing day to day stuff!! No traveling yet but that is on the horizon. first we gotta get this pool in. He's been digging a trench for electric, removing some tree stumps, etc. We think actual construction will begin in another month. Not in time for summer but we've waited this long. I spent the day with my newest Great Nephew. He's so cute!!! He's the one that was born on Aug. 10th . His Mom and I made baby shower invitations for my Niece who is due October. It is so much fun doing "happy" things. I also need to work on a package of Thank You cards to give as a gift to my Niece at her shower. I think I'll try to incorporate this week's TSC and kill two birds with one stone. Except I don't want to kill anything!!! Y'all walk with God and know that somebody in Texas loves you!!!!

CA, hope the first days of school were good for the kids, so you did not have upset little ones. Praying you are on the mend and feeling better each day - Take some time for yourself too, ya hear?

Tater, Glad to hear you two are enjoying life and getting to celebrate some HAPPY things - Thank You cards sound like a nice idea for the challenge AND very useful to everyone too - you can always use some of those kind of cards - Thanks for the Texan lovin's!!

I spent the day with my newest Great Nephew. He's so cute!!! He's the one that was born on Aug. 10th . His Mom and I made baby shower invitations for my Niece who is due October. It is so much fun doing "happy" things. I also need to work on a package of Thank You cards to give as a gift to my Niece at her shower. I think I'll try to incorporate this week's TSC and kill two birds with one stone. Except I don't want to kill anything!!! Y'all walk with God and know that somebody in Texas loves you!!!!

I have really been absent from here. Just been so busy. Lesley there are so many techniques for w/c. I love it. You can do two cards side by side using the same things and they are still different. If you have Distress Inks you can sponge color on the card for the bg and then stamp w/water or drop drops of water onto it for your bg. I love these two particular looks. I have been buying some Distress Inks. I just hate to invest more money into inks but they do so much more than the SU inks do. They blend beautifully. I love my SU inks and particularly like how they match everything. Anyway have fun if you get to do the challenge.

Sylvia, thanks for the input! I will try the Distress inks....I do have some. Sounds cool to sponge the color and then stamp with water or water drops. I will definitely try that! You are a DOLLBABY!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the new challenge list, Lesley!!!

One more update - I will get my other "bionic" knee on October 14 - still a ways off but it will be here before I know it - just a heads up, so y'all know about it in advance, since I value your prayers!!
