Looks who is at passing camp!! Yeah thats my boyfriend. OK maybe he isnt but you know. We all know how much Ami loves to hear about the Patriots. And am I supposed to go all the way until September for weekly updates on them? Come on now. I promise no weekly posts until then but I am going to just throw one in every now and then for Ami. Her kids appreciate me even if she doesnt. :)

Another Sympathy Card

I made this card for a friend of mine who lost one of her cats this past week. She had had Sami since she was 10 so she has taken his death pretty hard. I made this for her in hopes of brightening her day just a little.

Sympathy Card

I made this card for a co-worker's wife whose (is that a word?) grandma died this week. I am going to mail it to her tomorrow. Or give it to my co-worker to give to her. I believe the main floral image is from Hero Arts. The saying is from TAC. The cardstock is a combo between Match Maker and PTI. The ink is from PTI and also Palette Noir. Ribbon and pattern paper is from PTI's perfect match collection. Who doesnt love all their stuff to match? I know I do. Hope everyone had a great Tuesday!

Its the Little Things

Look, I made a card!! Arent you proud of me? I finally pulled out one of my Hanna sets and made a card with her. I colored her in with my copic markers. The more I use those markers, the more I like them. The saying is from a set from TAC. The cardstock is all from PTI except the pattern paper. Thats just a misc scrap I had on my desk. I hope everyone has a great Friday!

All for Ami

So the last 2 days have been kind of busy and I havent had any time to make anything new. SO, I know how much Ami misses my weekly football posts and with the start of the Patriots mini rookie camp I thought it was an appropriate time to throw in a post with Tom Brady in it. :) You love him, dont you Ami! Just imagine Ami, only about 4 months to football season! :)

Friendship is Forever

I made this card using one of my new stamps from Rubbernecker. I colored it in with my copics. I havent played a whole lot with the copics but I like how this came out. I didnt have any yellows to color the center so it got colored pink also. I also just received my May set of copics from the copic marker club at GinakDesigns. They are yummy colors and I cant wait to play with them!

On a side note, its voting day for us Hoosiers and its the first time in a VERY long time that Hoosiers are making a difference in the primaries so make sure you get out there and vote for your candidate.

I saw this on another blog and thought it was interesting. Why did they make the English language such a difficult one?

21 Reasons why the English language is so hard to learn:

13) They were too close to the door to close it.

14) The buck does funny things when the does are present.

15) A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line.

16) To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow.

17) The wind was too strong to wind the sail.

18) After a number of injections my jaw got number.

19) Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear.

20) I had to subject the subject to a series of tests.
