Hopefully, this quarter of a brain will remember how to do this next week as well, so that it will come together more easily. I am not asking for much, am I? Don't answer that. Please.
Hey, the really good news is that we did get the new computer. In all its glory. Wow. I told Merrilyn that I couldn't believe how powerful this baby is. It does just about everything but cook dinner. And, if it could do that, I wouldn't need Gary's other quarter of a brain. (We used to have whole brains, but that was before the age of 50. And, after the age of 60, the half-brains turned into quarter-brains. I don't want to know what happens after age 70. If you are over 70, please don't enlighten me. Let me live with my fantasies.)
It will be even more wonderful around here when we get our new iPhones. We both ordered the iPhone 6S Plus last Saturday from Verizon. Heaven only knows how long it will take for us to get them, but I will be one happy grandmama when we do. We will be able to send so much data back and forth to each other and our computers that our heads will be spinning. Thank goodness they, (our heads), are mostly empty now. It won't hurt much.
Gary got a boring black case for his silver phone. But I got a really artsy one for mine. Looks like a background for a card--like alcohol ink splotches. (I don't do boring very well; snicker.)
Oh, hey, the other exciting news is that the Arizona Cardinals won their home opener! And yours truly was there screaming like a banshee throughout the game. I couldn't really hear myself scream, though, as I had a new radio with earphones, instead of my earplugs. Kinda fun hearing all the play-by-play as I was there watching the action. So happy with the final result! This week the team travels to Chicago to take on "da Bears". I only hope that the home team stumbles badly. Sorry, Chicago fans, but I want my Cardinals to win this one, too! We need to stay at the top of our division, and a win is the only way to do that right now.
I won't bore you further with my sports talk. I will jump right into my details for this week.
Firstly, we are sponsored again this month by Norma J. Burnell's Fairy Tangles Art. She is giving the winner a choice of 3 digis from her shop. You will really enjoy browsing all her beautiful images, so be sure to get your entries in this month. Remember, you need to hand-color your image, but you may use the medium/media of your choice. I will be using an image from her shop next week.
This week, however, I have chosen another Sweet Pea Stamps image. This one is Snowy by Conie Fong, which I have printed on X-Press It BC and colored with my Copics, using our Color/Photo Inspiration for the week:
Skin: E000, E01, E11
Twigs/Hair: E53, E35, E37, E57
Boots/Coat/Headband: B32, B34, B37, B39
Nose/Hat: R20, R21, R22
Wings/Snowman: C00, C0, C1
Trim: B41, B32
Scarf: R20, R21, R22, B41, B32
I have not added anything to the front of this card, but have a Christmas message inside. I am trying to cram as many Christmas cards as I can into these last few months before the holiday. As always, I am woefully short, but hope to get more done in the next couple of months. (Don't I say that every year? And is it ever any different?) Sigh...
I hope you manage to get to our challenge to see the fab inspiration by my talented teammates: Carla, Kathi, and Vanessa. Karen has left us as she is dealing with health concerns at the moment and needs to cut back on her DT assignments. We are really sorry to see her go--she is a sweet spirit and very creative!
Do play along with us if you are able this week. We would love to see your creations.
Have a wonderful weekend! Go Cards!
