For this card, I used snippets from We R Memory Keepers papers, the graphic is Inkadinkado clear stamp. The sentiment is Stampin Up. The graphic background was made using Tim Holtz Distress inks that I sponged onto white cardstock. The graphic is stamped using Momento Tuxcedo Black, which was heat embossed with clear embossing powder. All was mounted on a black base.
The Stamping-Ground, it's a fun place to play...
Momma Jay is still waiting for her little ones. We thought the 17th was the day the first should hatch, however....the 17th is coming to an end and no hatchlings. Maybe tomorrow. I'm sure she is getting a bit bored with all the sitting. Although if all 5 survive, she will be busy keeping all of them fed. Thankfully dad has been staying very close, I'm sure he'll be a very active feeding partner.
We feed many animals and this one came in for a drink after a full meal of peanuts and sunflower seeds. My husband was a bit upset with him when he caught him burying nuts in his newly mowed lawn.
Yet another bird passing by....ok, maybe not...Ole Mother Goose has been a fixture at our house for years. I thought maybe she'd like a quick mention.....I think maybe I'll bring her to the playground on Di's blog....have you checked out her site? If not...it's a fun place to visit and a great place to share what you've been up too. Not to mention the snippets that actually end up on cards because of Di. Come on and play on the playground, mind you....everyone takes a turn on the toys and no sneaking under the fence. I guess if you want to know what that means, you'd best check out Di's blog page. Here.
Nice dress no? Want to know about it? I'm wearing it to my daughter's wedding in June. Well that's the plan anyway. Since I ordered the dress, I've put on a few pounds (a few too many). I wasn't too worried, until yesterday....I decided to try the dress on, one more time before I pack it for my first trip to Chicago. Did you hear screaming? I think all my neighbors did. To make a long story short...I need to drop 5 pounds, and better still 10 pounds before June 29th. As of today, I look like a sausage stuffed into a glittery dress. So.....if any of you see me sneaking lollies, take them away from me. I've gotten really lazy about taking walks, so today began day 1....the weather is beautiful and there is no reason why I can't do 10,000 steps a day. I'll be posting wedding photos in June...you'll know if I accomplished my goal. If not.....I'll be the one in the photos who is wearing blue jeans and a glittery sweatshirt.... :-(
Off I go. Lots to do and since I'd rather play than clean house....I'd best get moving. Have a most wonderful week. If the weather is as beautiful where you are.....make sure you get outside to play.
Hugs to all.....Mary AKA: Glitter Grammy
