Happy Monday

Hello everyone! I hope you had a great day and with lots of sunshine in your life!  Nothing new here except getting ready for my daughter to arrive on Wednesday with my two grandchildren, Abbie, is four and Andrew two. They are loads of fun. Abbie and I have tea parties at her little table. She gathers all her teddies and any other stuff animal she can find and places them just perfectly in place.  Sometimes you have to be quiet for we are in the movies and her friends (stuff animals) have to be able to hear! Andrew joins right in with his tea cup in hand and listens intently to what ever his big sister says. So dang cute, I tell ya.  She cracked me up the last time! The plastic tea set has a tea kettle and she goes and puts water in it and pours the tea into your cup! One day she said "grandma, I am not giving Pah Pah anymore tea" why Abbie? "Because he does this" and she holds the tea cup to her lips and pretends she is drinking. "Well, Abbie how do you know he really doesn't drink it and you just don't see him doing it?" she puts her hands on her hips and says "It is very OBVIOUS when he gives me back the cup and it still has water in it!" Oh lord, it took everything I had not to burst out laughing! A bundle of joy.

Tip of the day:  Did you know you can color your rubber stamps with Copic markers? You use your markers to color the rubber stamp. Since Copic's dry very quickly you need to do one of two things. You can either cup your hands around the stamp and huff on it, like you do when trying to get your hands warm from the cold.  Or you can take a mister, spray bottle and spray water into the air and quickly place your stamp where the mist is falling.  Let me know if that is not clearly written and I will help you. Sometimes you think people should know what your talking about and they are clueless.....I am usually the clueless one!!

My card today is yet another simple card and I love it! I made it for a dear friend to let her know how close I am in case she needs me!  When I saw this Karen Doodles digital image, I had to have it, for it made me smile big time! I hope you smile when you see it! Double click on the picture so you can see how I made the car shine with Diamond Glaze!

Hi Colleen, had such fun reading your post. What a super Granny you are and what FUN you must have with these little ones. That's the type of granny I'd like to be one day! I can imagine how sweet little Abbie must have looked with her hands on her hips. She sounds like a real little Madam that one! Kendall's boss has a little 2 year old. They went to the cat show and she went up to this gentleman and said "I want to buy that cat, you can speak to my Dad, he will pay you". The kind gentleman said that his cat is not for sale, so she also placed her hands on the hips and said, "Then why does he have a price tag on him?". She was referring to the Rosette, thinking if was a price tag. What a hoot! Love these little ones. But, I digress. Your card is adorable and am sure your friend will appreciate it. huge hugs Sharon x
