Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away.....

Does anyone watch Dancing with the Stars? Did yall think of me when you saw Cheryl Burke's dress? *grin* I loved it. All it was missing was a little bit of tulle to be absolute PERFECTION.

I'm sorry I've been absent. I'll try to do better, K? Well you know I will cause this week is the Verve release! You'll see sneak peeks tomorrow and Thursday so sit back and enjoy!

Here's a card I made over the weekend with last Wednesday's sketch challenge on SCS. Although it's clean and simple, I really like it! Ok that came out wrong. I like clean and simple. But I usually don't do it so well. This one, I like. (there, is that better?)


I played around a bit with watercoloring with my Stampin' Up! Markers, and found it to be a whole lot easier than I did the last time I tried it. I had better luck with a dryer waterbrush (if that makes any sense at all). The less water I used, the more control I had.

So the other day, we were driving down the road and my youngest son (looking up at the 1/4 moon) says, "Mom, I think Santa Claus eats the moon. It keeps getting smaller."

HAHAAAA!!!!!!!!!! That cracked me up. He just says these things, so matter of fact. Hilarious. Kind of like the time he asked if my friend/co-worker's dad had two heads. WTH?? I'd love to spend an afternoon in his brain.

Anywho, I hope you have a fabulous Tuesday, and I'll see you back here tomorrow!

o.k. i know i should be commenting on ur card...so , yep i luv it, but really i totally LUV LUV LUV your kiddo!!! he cracks me up! why oh why would he ask if ur friend's dad had 2 heads....OMG i cant quit laughing. I thought only my kids were crazy...thank God, that is not the case. My daughter recently took my 2 grandbabies to the kids museum in INDY and had a photographer take pics....so she emailed me copies to help pick some out and said "hey mom, how do you like the one where Brendyn (he's 2) is licking my hair?" and i'm like WTHeck are talking about until i looked thru them and sure enough there he was, arms around her neck (from behind her)and yep he's licking her hair! CRAZY KIDS!
so thanks for sharing, i can always count on you for a good laugh!!! Helps me feel not alone in this big wide world!

Half the time I have absolutely no idea what you are singing. So I get all excited when I recognize it. Anyway, love how your colors pop with those black accents.
