Rainbow Unicorn

Hello friends. Just thought I'd drop in and share another card. One of my friends from high school sent me a little request for his daughters. They love unicorns, so I used this cute set from The Greeting Farm. I hope they like it. :) I try to keep stamping, but this past week hasn't been the best mentally for me and I haven't done as much. I thought I'd be okay with being home a lot, but I guess my short outings ALONE meant more than I knew. It's hard to find time to think and regroup when you don't get a second alone. But, I'm glad Jason's job is still going and we are all healthy. That's the two biggest worries and we are okay.

I hope you all are safe and healthy. I don't know how long this will go on, but we will make it.  I think. lol

Toilet Paper Troubles

So I made a couple cards that go along with all we are going through with this pandemic. I did edit this one as to not offend anyone. I thought toilet paper was a perfect stamp for the times. Thankfully we had been to Costco before all this started and were stocked up, but man! I haven't seen a roll of it on the store shelves in ages. Where is it all??  That, flour, and yeast seem to be impossible to find right now in my area. What's been the most difficult where you are?

Anyway, a friend gifted me this set from Unity a while back and I hadn't inked it up. I might have squealed when I found it in my stash last week. :) I'm hoping the friend I sent it to enjoys it and manages a laugh. I know she's a bit stressed.

I'm off to figure out what to make for dinner. I feel like all I do is cook, empty and fill the dishwasher, laundry, and visit my backyard. It's like that over and over all day. I guess it's time to start the cycle again today. I'll leave you with a skink I found in the yard. I love these guys but they keep scaring me to death.

Cat Selfie Smiles

Hello! How's everyone hanging in there? It's been a long few weeks, huh? I've been doing more stamping and reading, but not so much uploading and blogging I guess. Oops! I made this one for my sweet friend Valerie who I met in my undergrad days. She's one of my favorite people and a fellow cat lover. I'm trying to make cards for specific people with themes I know they'll like in hopes of bringing some joy and smiles. This is the cute My Favorite Things Picture Perfect set. This was my first time trying to color this one, so I tried to copy Barb. I always like going off an already colored image to get an idea of how to color the first time around.

We've been visiting smaller parks to get out and walk during the distancing. Jason spotted this cool guy on one of our outings. We saw a lot of snakes there too. Laila and I also found a copperhead on our porch one day and had someone come to remove it to a better spot for it and us. So much excitement. lol  For big news, on Monday my brother donated part of his liver to my dad. They are both doing well so far, especially considering my mom isn't able to be at the hospital babying them. It was a scary time for that to happen, but my dad's health was getting bad and he knew a liver transplant wasn't going to happen except for this way. My brother is scared to death even now, but he's brave.

That's about it for me. I'm heading off to read a bit and get more cards signed and ready to mail.
