Yes, Toni, Angela Drake is my pen name for most things fiction. I use my real name for freelance and a different name for my spiritual freelance.

Love how opinions vary. One gal posted to MY author blog last week... she gave a cooking tip: when you think somethings missing, add ketchup LOL

I don't either, Jan. There are days I go through here like a whirlwind and other days I do nothing but sit. LOL On the days I go through like the whirlwind, I am very organized.

Oh I always wanted to be able to paint, shame but after stick men I'm struggling!
I've tried but, no can do. I see some really lovely watercolours on cards on here, very envious.

Don't be envious, Jan. The watercoloring is easier than you think.


1) Stamp your image
2) trace the inside edge of your stamped image with watercolor pencils or watercolor crayons
3) using a damp paint brush (or one of the brushes you fill with water) and draw the colored pencil line away from the edge into the center of your image to fill it in. You can also 'lightly' color the whole image in with the watercolor then swirl your damp brush around in it to give it that 'watercolor' effect.


And if that's not easy,


Using a solid image stamp, color it with the watercolor crayons, mist slightly with water from a mister bottle and stamp. Wala... instant watercolored image!


Give it a try, you'll be expanding your painting before you know it.


P.S... I always said I couldn't paint, either. Then I took a series of One-Stroke classes at Michaels and found I 'could' paint. LOL It is the only thing I am NOT self-taught in.


Have fun!

I don't think I have any car stamps. I do have one with a truck. Oh, but I believe I might have a car cutting file. Off to look. Hopefully, I'll find time to make a card soon. I do have a couple guy birthdays coming up in August.

Default S2S12 CHALLENGE

Happy Monday everyone!

On this date in 1911, we were given one of the most precious gifts of comedy we could have ever hoped for. Not only was this woman a ground breaker for female comedians to come, but she could play a dramatic role like no body's business.

Who am I talking about

Lucille Ball

Lucy was born on this date in 1911. Sadly, she left us all too soon on April 26, 1989 at the age of 77

Your challenge today is to honor the Queen of Comedy.

You have only two requirements:

Make it FUNNY
Most have RED

Great card, Rita!

And I'll try to get the July Winner drawn this week. In-laws are due in this evening for a week-long visit. I've been busy cleaning in prep. LOL

Kelly, I wrote in my book that last week's challenge was S2S12E1. Should this one be F1? Or did I read it wrong?

Oh, while I"m thinking of it. I heard from Sammy the other day. DH has been out of work so they've had limited internet use. He has a job now and hoping they'll be able to expand their plan to give her more on-line time. She said to tell everyone hi and she misses us

I finally got my boss's retirement guestbook done. Here are the many links to the pages. I showed it to her today and she loved it. Of course, the titles on the pages mean nothing to anyone but her and the staff. I should have taken the time this morning to crop the pages so they would have shown up better. I'm just glad to have this project done. Next time maybe I won't put it off until almost the last minute.

Thank you, Sharon. She loved it. I was worried I didn't have enough pages, but there are pages leftover after her party this afternoon. She can use them for notes if she wants. I had enough room for a little over 300 signatures and 250 people signed the book. I am so glad the part is over. I didn't know our little library could hold so many people at once. It was a fun day for her. It's going to be so strange going into work tomorrow and she's no longer my boss.

Thanks, Jan. One of my coworkers told me I need to make another book for the county fair next year. I have until next July to come up with an idea. There's no limit to ideas. I just have to get started a lot sooner than I did with this book. I don't want to spend 2 whole days on it again.

Today is Alfred Hitchcock's birthday. He was born in 1899

I thought we could get into the spirit by making a Halloween card Mr. Hitchcock would be proud to receive.

Use your imagination and have FUN!

Very helpful challenge as I have to make one for my Grandson, that's if I can find the energy, we have had extreme heat warnings for two weekends now, 38c in the shade for this weekend! I can image some of you have the same temperatures, we only walked to the dentist this lunchtime and by the time we arrived home we were both exhausted.
Not sure if my DH was trying to cheer me up, he said oh well only three months before we can light the log fire!!

That is hot Jan! It has cooled down considerably here this week.......now only getting up to 22C degrees in the daytime and it got down to 9C degrees last night. I had to wear a sweater on my walk this a.m. I think we are going to have an early fall........the mice are getting into my basement looking for a warm place to spend the winter. I have trapped 11 of them so far. Usually they don't come in until Sept. or Oct, and only one or two of them. I'm not sure what gives this year, but I don't like it!

The heat brings cockroaches, we only ever see one or two in the garden here but I was quite happy that none could get indoors but then someone told me they can come up from the drains into the toilet, since then Ive been putting triple strength bleach down the loo, we must have the cleanest drains in spain, Steve says the factory making it must have gone into overdrive trying to keep up with demand, he thinks its quite amusing how obsessed I am with them, we havent seen any though, I cant abide them, oh and earwigs, awful things.

HI everyone! Well, I finally finished VSBN and before that DTGD challenges. Finally had time to do my totals for July! You won't believe this : I am 13 cents in the good!
LOL
August will really look good because on my cards for DTGD and pages for VSBN I did more than one challenge on each item. That adds up at $2.00 a challenge!
Now, maybe I will have time to do the Kelly's challenges.
Jan I hope you get thru the heat. I don't think I could go thru what you are describing! eek! Finally cooled down to 90 here. We do have spiders coming up the drains, though.

I'm surprised we haven't seen too many spiders. Maybe our spiders don't like the heat so they're hiding :P It's hard to believe that in just a few short months we're going to be complaining about the cold around here. I'm afraid winter is going to be very cold this year after the mild one we had last year and the hot, dry summer we've been having.

I should be working on cards instead of being on the computer. At the very least, I should be making my dad's birthday present. I want to make an picture album of my granddaughters for him. That's the best present I can think of for an 83-year-old who needs nothing and buys what he wants.

Boy Debbie, you like to put pressure on yourself! I am sure it will turn out beautifully.

I won't put as much work into the book for Dad as I did the guest book. It has to be kept pretty simple for him.
