Hi everyone! tomorrow's Friday so today can't be half bad even if it is stinkin' hot, not that I'm complaining! I have a couple of little stories to share - one funny and one kind of sad. The funny one first because everyone should start the day with a smile!
A couple of days ago at work a lady called. I always identify myself when I answer the phone. She said "Holly, you are an angel! I need service!" Well I thought to myself "here is a lady who has been without air conditioning in this heat and is so happy to have me answer the phone" I took some information from her and then I said "and what's your name?" and she said "Vera Angel" I really felt put in my place and was happy I hadn't said anything in response to her "you're an angel" comment!
The sad story is something that happened last night. Brock and I were sitting in the living room watching tv and Baxter was sitting at my side. Brock saw a fly and got up to get the flyswatter. The minute Baxter saw that flyswatter he was clawing his way up my neck trying to hide and make himself as small as possible. He was trembling terribly! I asked Brock to put the swatter away and he proceeded to kill the fly with a rolled up newspaper. For at least an hour after that Baxter trembled and shied away from Brock. I felt so sorry for him! I think we can safely surmise that some of his trauma came from flyswatters!
Okay, here is my card for the day. I used one of Cheryl Alger's newest images available at Squigglefly. This one is called Back Yard Vacation.
It's pretty easy to see what I did. I just colored the image with Copic markers and chalked the sky. After that it was a simple matter of matching it up with some designer paper and I angled the image on top of that. The little rick rack piece came later as I had the designer paper a little crooked and when I adjusted it, the cardstock tore a bit. I added the rick rack to cover the tear. I then added a crocheted flower with a brad center.
That's it for the cards I made over the weekend. If I make another card before tomorrow I'll share it, otherwise you won't see me again until Monday! Have a great day!
