Happy Tuesday and some business...

Good morning everyone! I hope that today finds you all well. I hope that your long weekend gave you all a little refresher, but I also hope that you did not forget the true meaning of the holiday.

My Father was one who served in WWII and I grew up with lots of stories about history. It is kinda sad but I did learn more from my Father about history and WWII than I did from school. I am so thankful for that, I just wish that he was around to tell those stories to my daughter. It's a shame that she has not learned anything in school about the war. It seems that they skipped over that in history. Well, she wants to be a teacher when she get's older ~ maybe she can change that.

There's something that I'd like to show you today. A creation I made, then something that my Mom's been cookin' up.
I'm going thru a slump again. I don't know if it is lack of creativity or lack of new stamps that's got me. I still plug along but everything that I made I feel is 'ho-hum'...
I made this card the other day using my Friendship Blooms set. The base card is Pacific Point and I used Old Olive and Purely Pomegranate on it. The inks were Rose Red, Temping Turquoise and Old Olive. I stamped the images on the white part of the card using my markers to color the rubber directly. I then stamped the images on Pacific Point and Purely Pomegranate and cut them out and placed them on the card. It was a quick and simple card, actually a little fun to make. But lacking in the creativity department.
Now I want to show you a little something that Mom's been up to. For a couple of months she's been crocheting flowers. She normally does the blankets and covers, but when she saw the flowers in the SU! catty last time she kept thinking that she could do that. Well, we found a book, finally, and she found the pattern she was looking for and she was practicing. Our Walmart here re-did their craft section last year and took out the fabric and all the goodies. When we went with Betty last month to Walmart in another town they had the craft section full so Mom picked up some yard. Well she's been working on the flowers.
I told her she should sell them, but she does not think that they will sell. So she is! She is selling them for 45 cents a piece. Anyone interested? These are the only colors that she has right now. Blue, Red, Purple, Green and Yellow. If you are interested please send me an e-mail to joanmcdonald@roadrunner.com and I will put a link up in my sidebar also.
That's all I have for today. I hope that I will see you back here tomorrow!
Hugs,
Joani
