Good Morning Friends

Have a restful and INKy Sunday!

... ... ... ...

Today is National Cherry Popsicle Day,
Women’s Equality Day,
Go Topless Day (EEK!!!),
Make Your Own Luck Day,
Toilet Paper Day,
and National Dog Day.




Enjoy your holiday of choice today!
Sheesh! I don’t know about you, but I’m keeping my top on!



Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us to Tip the Wait Staff Well (unlike some customers)


A trio of women was arrested after allegedly attacking their waitress at a Red Lobster. The three have each been charged with one count of mob action and one count of assault. What could possibly go so wrong at a Red Lobster that you'd need to issue a beating to your server?

According to witnesses, the ladies became irate after their waitress filled their water glasses too frequently. One of the trio responded to the insult of attentive service by tossing a recently-filled glass at the waitress as she walked away from the table, hitting her in the head. When the server turned around to see what happened, she was battered in the face with the dessert book.

Good morning, Lynn, love the quotes.

I think I will have to try cherry popsicle day, never had one. My favorite use to be rootbeer. What is or was your favorite? Also remember they were 6 cents each and 3 cents for half.

Today is laundry day and maybe some crafting day.

Have a great one ladies.

Hope everyone has a great day!

G'morning AlphaZanies. I hope everyone is having a good morning. Lauren, thank you for the comment about my card. I will have to look, did you join this years Secret Santa swap? Believe it or not I was favorited this week for my Z card. What a surprise. I went to read the last comment left for the card and it was a comment telling me I was favorited. That put a smile in my heart.
Ladies, I don't know how much I will be on for the next couple of days. Dawn's parents are coming up today. They were supposed to come yesterday however their water heater broke so dad had to install a new one. So they should be here this afternoon. I am going to finish up on SCS here and then go clean Dawn's room. Her parents sleep in there when they come up since she works third shift except they can't sleep in there right now heck she is sleeping on the couch. Her room is a huge mess. You can't see the bed and you can't see the floor. When she got home from work I asked her if she wanted help cleaning her room she said "Oh I ain't gonna worry about it. Mom will pick it up." and she went to sleep. OMGosh no way. I am not having anyone come into my home with there being a messy room. Plus, that is not her mother's job to clean up after her. It's not my job either but I seem to be doing it an awful lot lately only because I can't stand my home being messy. Oh dear listen to me running off at the mouth, I am so sorry. I will hush...I do hope yall have a great day.


Is the reason there are no dares being put out here because y'all can't think of Z words to challenge people with?

I forgot to mention that my favorite popsicle is the one that is red white and blue. I think it might be called a rocket pop but I am could be wrong.

Enjoy your company even tho the resaon is not so great.


Vicky, I thought there was no time limit on making the alpha cards, maybe I should dare you, would that help? I know you can do it.

Packaged and ready to mail in the morning. Just a sample; after a second read I determined that some of these won't fill the bill for you but let me know if I can help with anything.

Vicki I too took on a "Z" card that is taking forever to make . Oh boy.
Dani, congrats on your card.
Diane, hope you are doing better.
Lynn and Kathy.............Oh boy, you too need to get the S-E-X off your mind. LOLOLOL
Everyone else....HELLO!!!!! :0
Sorry have not been on much lately. I am like Lynn, I just want to sleep all the time. I think it is the seizure meds and I hope sooooo badly if they tell me I can go off them Monday, that I do fine and then maybe I won't be so sleepy all the time.

Ok, off to work on my "Z" card AGAIN!!!!! Wish I would have thought of something else

Dani, tell you what, if you come clean my house, I will take your back pain for 1 month to give you some relief. (Don't I wish it worked like that) I would give you 1 month anyway if I could. Even without the cleaning.

Biggggggg HUGS everyone and I love all the cards everyone is making.

Lauren, love the idea that if I clean the craft room, I will find treasures. Have to give it a try. Actually, if you want a good giggle, look at the cards made a few years ago. They were such treasures. LOL!!! I am going thru mine right now and re-vamping them for a cause.

Vickie, I will look into what a zannia is, and get back to you.

Have a great evening everyone.

G'morning AlphaZannies. Everyone, thank you for the congrats. I have to tell ya, it made my day. I never think my work is all that good, so that helped with my "cardmaking" self-esteem, if you will.
I'm with Susan, what is a Zannia? Lynn, I bet you thought the growing and developing part of life was done with huh? lol Bev, I'm a bit confused, are you sending stuff for me to see if it will work? If so, thank you sooo much. Susan and Lauren, I still have the very first card I ever made...omgosh talk about growing. I will have to share it with y'all sometime. Every so often I look at it and just chuckle because I remember how proud I was that I made it. To tell you the truth my 3 year old grandchild can do better than what I did. lol Well ladies, today I will be going with Dawn and her family to put flowers on Morgan's grave and to release 3 balloons. I hope this doesn't make Dawn too sad, she has to work tonight. Well everyone, I will be on for a few mins this morning since everyone is still sleeping. But once people start waking up I will have to make breakfast. Oh and I will gladly come and clean anyone's house. But the rule is....if you have toys that I don't have I get to play with them when I am done cleaning. Yay!!!!!!! Donna, I will gladly come and clean if you pay for my trip there. Wouldn't that be awesome???? I need a vacation ya know. hehe...Well ladies I am going to check out the other threads and say hi to everyone. Behave today if I don't talk to you. We haven't had anyone in the naughty corner lately.

Good Morning Friends!

Is it really Monday already?
Okay… well, try to make the best of it!

... ... ... ...

Today is National Pots de Creme Day,
Petroleum Day,
The Duchess Who Wasn’t Day,
Just Because Day,
Motorist Consideration Day,
Global Forgiveness Day,
Banana Lovers Day,
and Kiss Me Day.



Enjoy your holiday of choice today!


Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us that there are some Dumb Criminals in the World


A 28-year-old man decided to rob a local newsstand. Besides the fact that stealing is wrong, there were a couple of serious issues with James' decision that probably should have been addressed during the planning stages of the crime:

1. The man was a regular customer at the store.
2. He had attempted to rob it just 10 days prior.

Still, the man was undeterred. He marched into the store wearing a ski mask, pointed a toy gun at the cashier, and took just over $200 from the till. He then attempted to exit the shop, but was thwarted by the fact that he could not push the door open...

...when it was supposed to be pulled.
The man then whipped off his mask (in full view of the surveillance cameras) in frustration and kicked the door, which shattered the glass and sent him careening backwards while a display case of drink bottles fell on top of him.

The man was found three hours later by the police. After being put into the squad car, he began crying (probably out of a mixture of guilt and shame) and asked if everyone at the store he had just robbed was alright.

It was later revealed that the man had developed a severe drug addiction and had resorted to crime in order to pay off debts to his dealers. He has begun serving a three year prison sentence by getting clean and taking steps to get his life back together.

If you do have any of those things and you are willing to share with me please pm me for my address. Thank you ladies!!!!!!!!!





Dani, this is the request I am responding to.

Diane, so sorry for you.

Dani, just take your time when you are doing that housework, and remember to take a break when needed. I had to learn that. Not easy when your mind is saying one thing and your body is saying can't do that!! Kwim?

Hope everyone is having a nice day!
I missed seeing this post so needed a nudge to accept the dare. I wasn't sure what a zinger was in card lingo so here's my interpretation! I've been making Halloween cards so I used the same colors!

Chris, love the Zinger card. I too was wondering what you would use as a zinger. I was thinking those treats that have the cream in the middle. Yummy!!!!!! Not that they would work on a card tho....lol

No - I think that would be a kinda MESSY card if you used a Zinger that you can eat on it!!

Good Morning everyone! At least it's still morning where I am. That's a good thing as I have a looooong TO DO list.

My youngest DD is home sick from school today. A head cold with a mild fever yesterday. Hopefully for her sake it's nothing much and she'll be back in the swing of things tomorrow.

Tomorrow is my real busy day. My one-day-a-week volunteer job in the day and a club meeting in the evening with barely any breathing time inbetween.

All that to say, I may not make my Letter Z card until Wednesday. It's in my head, the supplies are laying out, I have my new punch - thanks to the inspiration from Jeri / Stampmontana. It's the time to be creative that I don't have yet. Oh well.

There's been some zelously fun Letter Z cards this time! I'm off to see more since I last checked in. Have a great day everyone!
