Fun Card - Humorous Seniors

I love this stamp image. The name of the image is Sunning Sadie. There is a site called I Brake for Stamps that has humorous images and sayings about seniors. I find that as I get older myself, I don't care if people cast fun remarks at seniors. After all, some of them can be pretty funny. But I love this line of stamps so I will probably make more cards withthem. I have some old friends out there (and you know who you are!)so I will probably send some of these cards to them. :)

Birthday Card

This is a birthday card for my grandson's 5th birthday. So Mom when you see this, don't let Jared see it. When I saw this stamp image on 7KidsCollege Fund site, it reminded me of Jared and his dog Madison. Notice the big paws. Madison has big paws like that. Madison and Jared love to play but when Madison gets tired, she would prefer that Jared leave her alone while she takes a nap. Madison is getting older but even if she is tired, she doesn't like to miss out on any excitement. That's a lab for you. I enjoyed making this card because I got the chance to use my Copic markers.

I'm Back

I need to get my "MoJo" going and create some cards. Sometimes I think that when I look at different sites and blogs to get ideas for card making that I spend too much time looking and not creating. I plan to make a couple of cards this week and post them. I have spent time practicing coloring with my Copic markers. I would like to use my Copics in making the cards this week so please be patient with me and I will eventually get there.

The summer is busy for me. I spend time with my grandkids and I am also gathering household items for a yard sale which is a big undertaking for me. As I get older it seems that everything I do is in slow motion and I don't accomplish as much in one day as I used to. :D
