June 22, 2023 I am again, finally!

Seems I can't get to my room, photos, and computer, to create posts. Life has been on the wild side since dear hubby retired Feb. 28th. Hopefully in a month or so, things will quiet down for a while, at least until August 1st!

Anyway, I have some photos to share today. I'm going to begin with a coloring page that our granddaughter did last week when she was here. I showed her a bit about blending her inks as she colored, and I am in awe of her detailed coloring! She is NINE years old, folks! I was still using crayons at 9, I'm pretty sure!  Here is her beautiful work - if you get a chance, leave her a bit of love here, and I'll see that she gets it!

On to some things I've made, but not yet posted:

This is bits and pieces from a Stampin' Up! kit, and an older Stampin' Up! stamp set with the          cutest panda's.

There are several photos of the next card. This first photo is the cover, or card base, and belly band. This was a card that we made at our Card and a Cuppa that we have on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday mornings at Panera's. My friend, Ruth Petsel, led the group that day, and we made this amazing
Stadium Wave card!

I've included lots of photos, so you can see the different waving panels.

If you look closely at this one, you will see that my white bird is upside down. Oops! I have
taken it off, and have put a Happy Birthday sentiment where the bird was. Silly me!

All of the Ephemera that I used for this card is a set from Ranger that I bought at the stamp store in Kimmswick, Mo.

The next 3 cards are from a Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin kit. My bestie, Shirley and I have
decided to share a kit, as neither of us need 8, 10, or 12 of anything in the kit. These are my
share of the kit!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm missing everyone, and hope to sit down and leave some love on your blogs tonight!

Take care, and God bless!
Patti J.

Food for thought:  Much of our unhappiness in life is the result of comparing
ourselves to others...

June 1, 2023

 Just an update:

Gail asked how I knew about my posts being unpublished. Blogger emailed me and told me each time they took one down. 

I changed the titles to just a date, and sent to the appeals link, and received emails that the posts were accepted.

Thanks for checking in on me, my friends. 2023 has been tough, so far, beginning on Jan. 1, when our fur baby crossed that rainbow bridge. It continues to be a challenge, but so far, we are hanging in there!

Hugs to all, I’ll be back as soon as I can get here again!
