Can't believe it

Happy Week-end everyone! Let me tell ya, I am not a happy camper today. When I first log onto my blog  I was ecstatic for I had over 100 followers! Then I noticed two of the small postage stamps had girls in bikini's. I clicked on their names to see the profiles and of course it had porn blog addresses. I was very insulted and even madder that some of my followers might have witness it. If it happens to can get rid of the picture by clicking on options and then block them. Unfortunately, I think I blocked a legit follower. Grrrr so angry that no matter what  you do on the internet ...someone can ruin it for ya. KWIM?

Let's move onto happier thoughts! Tomorrow we are leaving for PA for our grandson and granddaughter's birthdays! . Now here is an interesting fact:  Two of our daughters had two children in different years from one another. Renae's children birth dates are; Tyler March 21 and Travis August 15. Amy's children birthdays are: Abbie September 15 and Andrew September 21st. The days are the same! 15 and 21st! Two of our grandson's were born on the same day year apart!  Son, Richie  was born on the day his grandmother died and the same day as his cousin's b/d only one year difference. The list goes on and on!! Just thought I'd share our amazing dates! Do you have any in your family?

My get well card is using an image from coloring pages for children and I believe it is from this site. You will find over a thousand images in Jpeg format that you can save to your computer and they aren't cheesy images either and all kinds of characters including TV, history, movies, etc. ! Have fun surfing!


All of my supplies are from my sorry.

Tip of the day: You want to color a lighter color with your copic, however, you only have the color in a dark shade. Pre-soak your paper with the colorless blender solution or 93-95 percent rubbing alcohol first with the colorless blender brush. Make sure you do not go over the lines for the color marker will follow the colorless blender solution. While it is still wet apply your darker color and it will be slightly lighter. You will use less ink, since your paper is already saturated and your color area will be smoother. This is really good to do if you are coloring a large area.

Don't forget if you get color on your colorless blender pen to wipe it clean on paper or paper towel. You do not want the color to enter your clear solution or  you will no longer have a colorless blender.

Have a great weekend everyone!! BE SAFE xoxoxo

This is gorgeous.

I have some funny dates too. My Mum died on my Wedding Anniversary, so now I had two disasters on the same day! My Father, the youngest male produced by his Mum and his brother 26 years older were born on the same day, so she started and ended her family on the same day - she had 14 more inbetween though! Phew talk about exhausting. My best friends Daughter was born on my birthday and mine was born on her's!

What a beautiful card that is... you are such a talented artist.

I was sorry to read that you had some unwanted intruders joining your site. Well! Trust me I am genuine. ;)

Glad you had a great Wedding Anniversary. Belated greetings!

BTW, my kind hubby has forgotten our wedding anniversary more often than not! I have learned to forgive him (no choice).

Happy crafting,

Hi Colleen,

WoW...what a pretty card! I luv the image and it's very nicely coloured.

Thx for the sweet comment you left for me over at The Digi Bells. I'm really sorry but I can't remember which green Copic markers I used on my card and I can't check becaues I sold that card awhile ago. I think the colours were some of these...
