Hello, I have not been here for a very long time. I am going to try to rectify that. Here is a card made for the sketch challenge for the Outlawz. I used one of JAN's DIGI STAMPS called April Showers and the sentiment. I am also going to use this card as a thank you card for someone who is sending me some much needed hand sanitizer. Most items used are Stampin' up, Fun Stampers Journey and Gina Marie Designs.
 Here is my card.

Miss blogging

I miss blogging. I am still in limbo with our move, half of my stuff is still in the old house. I have very limited supplies for card creating with me, most of everything is in boxes. Tom is still with us. When he finally moves out we are going to make the master bedroom into my craft room. It will be a slow process, as I am on a fixed income, and can not afford to buy cabinets and desk top, shelves etc, all at once.

the big issue right now, is getting the rest of my stuff out of the house. I need help. I am the only one that can pack anything (Ron can not), and I am limited with my back. I am so hoping my daughter will start giving me some help. Please pray that she does, and pray we have the time to get everything I want to get, out. Thank you!

New Simply Betty stamp

Hi there! I'm just here to say hello, and show you a picture of my "new-to-me" car. A 2013 Kia Sorento XL. They call the color Cherry. It only has 43 thousand and change miles on it. I have the remainder of the bumper-to-bumper and drive train warranties, plus free oil changes (twice a year) for the life of the vehicle.
I finally rec'd my workers comp settlement, not as much as we hoped for, but still enough to do a few things with.

Anyway, here is  card made with one of the new fruit gals from Simply Betty Stamps.
The papers are scraps, the dies are spellbinders. I used pop dots and some Rhinestones I had. There is a small boo-boo, I only put one piece of tape on the die and it shifted and I ended up with some blue on my dotted was the only piece I had of it, so oh well.

I am entering this in the Simply B stamps fan page challenge (FB) and

Trying to get back into the swing of things

We will be moving not sure when, but it will be a 5 times  a down size. That means I have to put most of my art stuff in storage, trying to start working on that soon.   BUT there is so much, the house looks like a hoarders...well you can see the floor, and you can walk around so I guess it isn't that bad, but all flat surfaces downstairs have art stuff on them.

Anyway due to this I can't promise any consistency with posting, but I'd like to start back up and I am going to try and start the challenge blog THE GAME back up shortly as well. Here is a little card I made for Operation Write Home (flat and simple, well it is fairly flat).  It is a SIMPLY BETTY image and sentiment, old paper, and a bow made with my STAMPIN UP  Bow Builder punch. IT IS AWESOME!! Image and sentiment are on pop dots.  Thanks for visiting!

I am going to enter it in:

skinnier me

Here is a picture taken at Chili's when our daughter and SIL took us out for dinner for my Birthday(June 22). I'm down by 80 lbs.   My hair needs a color and cut, but I am thinking about leaving it gray. Ron looks good too :) My clothes are too big for me, and my bustline is sagging beyond anything, but the weight coming off is the most important part.  I do not know what that weird reflection on my glasses is. Ron's shirt says "got crabs?" On the back is a seafood restaurant in WA. it from his son when he was in NJ. Ron was still in the rehab facility back in 2012.
I am having a watermelon cooler, and Ron has an "Angry Orchard".   It was a lovely day. I treasure my time with my daughter. 

My dessert is one of those molten cakes...CINNAMON....Ron didn't have any; good boy.  I was bad but it was my birthday.
I did rotate this but blogger keeps putting it sideways.

The problem is fixed

It had something to do with Blockhead stamps, once I removed their logo, and blog the malware warning disappeared. HOORAY!

On a different note, I just finished hopping (2 days) on the 7th annual Mad tea party blog hop...go here, the list of all the participants are on the right side bar.

It was fun, but I am sad that I could not participate this year. I recommend you do the hop, much fun and whimsy to be found as well as a few giveaways.

Malware warning

If you arrived at my blog without a malware warning then great. If you got the warning but came anyway thank you.    I do not understand why after all these years I now have this warning pop up. It is a small reason of why I did not participate in the annual mad tea party hosted by a Fanciful twist. If any of you know how I can fix this please let me know.

I'm BAAAAACK! and sharing

Hello friends, It has been a very rough year for me. Hubs was sooo very ill. He did not finally come home until April 25th, the day after my Mom died.  I basically had a nervous breakdown (anxiety from all the weight on my shoulders). Now having  med changes. Getting ready to start therapy and monthly trips to a shrink about the meds.

All of the "weight" was spread over many PEOPLE in my own family, and extended family.
There have been some tough decisions made, and not sure if for some, there will be any going back.

MY ether net card is dead in my computer, so I come to the library. I have a tablet, but can not blog from it.

So this is LABOR DAY weekend here at the shore, and it means Tuesday begins our area getting back to normal traffic, prices etc.  It ALSO means I will blog once a week for now, and gradually add on, I hope most of you are still visiting me.

Sharing another blog's giveaway today...D-D Dazzled  Birthday Candy  :)

Good luck!
