Earlier in the week I went to the Stamp-a-long to make some cute Stampin' up cards.
Don't you just love this alligator one??? I do!
His mouth opens up to reveal a pink tongue.
The wood background is a big stamp, I think it looks great on this bluish paper and the tree stamp, although it's almost vintage, is soooo versatile, I love it!
I made up this card myself, I did copy the design from one of the cards we made at the Stamp-a-long. One of the cards used a scalloped circle and there was more paper than we needed for it ......odd, very odd for Carolee to give us more paper than we needed....but I digress. I punched out partial circles from the leftovers and brought them home.
I had the matching coral washi tape and some black and white and pulled out some of my miscellaneous scraps and viola! here it is! Kind of springy me thinks. I wanted to put something more in the white spot in the middle, but liked the HI (previously cut from a die) overlapping the circle. I added black pearls on the scallops on one circle, it just adds the right something. ... I think.
I really didn't do much this week, my energy just wasn't there. I do know I am going to cook! I pulled some chicken breasts out of the freezer and will made something good this weekend. I want REAL food.
One night I attended a genealogy meeting with a good friend of mine. It was informative, but my ancestry is not in this county...unfortunately, although if I visit that library I can get on Ancestry.com free of charge. I can see where I'd enjoy doing this, I like researching things. Some one has published a book on my dads side, but I could possibly find out more details about him and his parents. I can research my mom's side, and that will be easier because my daughter has some of that done already. ...just what I need - another hobby.
I haven't heard from hubby for a couple of days. The last time I heard from him he said they were fooling around with the internet and it was slower than ever, so I just wait around. I really don't mind being home alone, there's barely a day that I don't leave the house anyway.
I did see the dermatologist this week and he 'zapped' me twice, as usual. Good news, I don't have to see him for 6 months. It varies from 3 - 6 months, depending upon if he finds some skin cancer....I've been good of late :-) So, as a reminder, to those of you who are boomers and grew up without sunscreen, please have skin checks by a professional.........any potential skin cancer won't be noticed by you!
Have a great weekend!!!! We are having a heat wave....temps are in the teens and the sun is shining. Woo Hoo!!!
