I've been away from my computer for the last few days. Some of it was spent shopping for a new minivan. What a pain! Do you ever feel like the salesman goes to talk to the Wizard of Oz when he steps away from his desk? They're not fooling me!!! Good thing that we shopped at the end of the month. Anyhow, if everything goes as planned we're getting a new van next week. I've read about some demonstrators making enough money to make monthly car payments. Looks like I'd better step things up a bit!
After van shopping, I spent the majority of my time enjoying the mild summer weather with my kids. Right now they're outside having a water balloon fight with my brother Joe. I hope the balloons are biodegradable like the package says. We had a bit of trouble with the kids running in and out of the house soaking wet a few days ago. Plus they got about nine towels wet before they decided to call it quits. Today they got a warning. Once they're inside, they're inside to stay. It also helps that I locked them out, LOL!
After reorganizing my samples, I ran across one card from my Open House that I forgot to photograph. Here it is:
I cased this card from Heather Cserni and Vicki Burdick. I stamped the images with white craft ink then dusted them with white embossing powder and took my heat tool to them. After that I colored areas inside the doilies with Real Red and Night of Navy markers. One thing that I forgot to do on this card was add a rhinestone to the star on the sentiment.
My mom gave me some fresh peaches yesterday. They're really ripe, so I've got to make a pie tonight. This means that I don't have time to cook supper, so we're calling for Chinese!
