Here is the card that I made for the friend that just received her Masters She has taken a few years to do this by taking a few classes each year. I wanted to acknowledge the juggling etc that she did over this time... She is a Mom with 4 kids , one is still home.. so took the little people from my Thai paper and tried to depict just that. It was fun.
Well hello to you all too, jumping in here while I was a way, turning the page and half filling the next one, next time wait for me!!!!
Marion you have such a wonderful creative bent, what a wonderful card you made, so very very special for your friend. I just love it. Thanks for sharing with us. Also left some love on your suitcase, where are we going by the way??? I have my bag packed too.
Oh Lynn at least after those shots you will be calm and not keep losing your temper!!! Ha Ha Ha , I am so funny I kill myself.
Now I have to go and craft to finish a card for my neighbour for her DIL birthday. Lucky me, a real paid commission..... Fancy that!!
Have to do Twisted Tuesday as well, those girls are so twisty over there..... have you been there yet???
So keep in line girls, and don't forget that I am the keeper of the naughty step, although none of you are around long enough to do anything worthy of going there.... don't forget that my new Spellbinders Floral Flourishes are there with the Big Shot machine for the use of the naughty step sitters.....
Sorry Lauren, I haven't been playing along lately.
Can I vent or maybe I should ask if I can just open up? I try not to do it on here but, I have found that I hold it in and it just get worse. I have been having my own little pitty parties with no one invited but me. (thats how they should be) Since the store is just about done now, I have found that to keep me human, I need to work. On my days off, I am a wreck it's only on the days I go into work that I feel needed and usefull and in less than a month I don't know what I am going to do.
OK, sorry, I will quit. And I am so sorry I have not been playing or chatting with you all. I really do miss all of you and the fun we have always had. Bye and have a great day everyone. Sun is shining here that always helps

Donna, no one should hold it in; vent away dear friend. Everyone on this thread needs and loves ya girl! I for one, look forward to reading your posts; I know you can't be on the computer for long periods of time for health reasons, but always feel a bit of "sunshine" when you are on.
Donna we do need to see you and hear from you ... and we all need to vent and even vent some more to just to work through stuff... Job loss when not your choice is almost like grieving.. it is a loss. Vicky is right, we always love to hear from you.
Lauren- I know it has been quiet, everyone is so busy or something..
It is raining here this morning so a very dull morning.
Dawn- did you cover up the messages you painted on the walls.....

I can only "check in" for a while; I've been spending every spare minute working on my DGD scrapbook that I have to have completed before May 19. Oh my goodness! I've taken on a project that is starting to overwhelm me, but I know she is soooo looking forward to getting it I just have to git r done!
Well well well here you all were playing while I was sleeping!!! Hmmmm.... maybe have to change my sleeping habits...
Donna Donna Donna, vent away, we love to hear from you and we are all here for you!! Don'tworry about the challenges, we just want to hear from you!!. Goodness you are going to feel all those feelings of loss and grief in the situation you are in, but come in here and tell us about it, get it out, we want to help you my friend. And we all love a good party!!
Dawn did you keep the love message on that wall??? You are a cleaning, fixing demon girl!!
Hello Marney Kathyand Vickie, such wonderful wise and loving words, love you all. Now go have a good evening and ..... I have blogged you know..... surprise surprise!!
Hey Vickie you know that nana naps help me make cards like that, thank you for the lovely words.
Now I have had my nana nap and just had a lovely coffee brought up to my crafting room by the DH so I must be ready for a little tidy up (minimal) and a couple of cards. Have a children's card to create, and I am not good at those, not much use for flowers on them......
So I will call back later to check you are all asleep and having sweet dreams.
See you all later, might hang around later tonight so I see some of you in your morning!!!
O my !!!!! now I have to sign up for another whatever you call them to keep track of you girls...... I know everyone is talking about Pinterest. I have gone to the site but have not figured out to navigate it as yet.... I know you are just trying to keep my ol' brain working but really.....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love everyone's cards that are showing up.. will post mine this morning but have to have breakfast first.
Anyway hope everyone has a greta day lol.. how come great always comes out greta on my key board...... every time I write it I have to correct it.... lol......
Lol lol lol o my I posted to the Alphebet Challenge not this one.. can I make the excuse that I had a senior moment..... I know Debbie, it kind of scared me when I peeked into that site.... and Lauren... I will never catch up to Yvonne... I should have never let her into my "stuff" so many years ago.... she does have that artistic fling, just like so many of you..:0
May be I should go for a walk....or go to MIchaels they have 50% off today and tomorrow... Have to mail some letters too....
Oh Vickie I understand the fear of Pinterest, I am there in a small way, but it really is for keeping my inspiration instead of storing it on a flashdrive. I see people there with hundreds of boards and hundreds of pins on them.... oh my what time that must take.
Lisa is addicted, she is pinning more than playing, Lisa I miss you!!!!
Marney I think you are a fabulous mummy to have shared your craft things with your Yvonne, what a fun mummy you must have been and I feel now you are the best gram that could be!!! I always smile huge when I see you have been here.
Now I made 2 cards yesterday, might have to go for a record and beat that today, well that is the plan.
Hope your day has been a good one ladies, and hope there has been some ink in there somewhere.
The grumpy has been checked out...he is doing well...they shoertened his splint...first thing he did was get his fingers caught up in the coat.....ooouuuchhh...not to be outdone...took the cone headed Kerra for a walk and popped my knee...now I must complain...I really hope the spare part...when they come have a better warantee!
