Sheldon is Home

He is back from Tunisia. Yeah. Though he isn't feeling very good today. I guess his body needs to adjust to being home. So we took it pretty easy and did some minor things. Like....fixing my computer!!! Yeah, it was a pretty easy fix. He just had to clean out the fan area. We probably have lots of cat hair and it was really dusty recently.

We were supposed to go listen to a lecture on 300 today...but since Sheldon wasn't feeling good we didn't go. Which was okay for me, I spent from 3 pm to almost 9 working on school work. is a lot of working taking online classes.

Plus, in honor of Sheldon coming home...I created this cute dog card (don't tell the kitties).

Hope you have a great night...we might actually get some snow here.

Fun Spring Card

After making those sympathy cards I decided I should try and make something else. It was only midnight. LOL Plus, they had a Monk Marathon on and it hadn't ended yet. I stamped a few images and started playing with my copics. I did this image 3 different times and it came out a bit different each time. I just made one card though for the moment.

I ended up using my copics. I have to say some of the tips that I have read I have made a huge difference. I still haven't figured out hilighting yet. However, the picking up one color with another has helped a lot. Especially since most of my colors are darker. I am going to start going to Hobby Lobby and picking up a color here and there with their 40% off coupons.

Take care and remember Easter comes in March this year.

The Hardest Cards to Create

This week 2 of my friends have lost a parent. That has to be the hardest thing for anyone to go through. I don't think I can even explain to each of them my condolences. I am glad that they both have great families to help see them through this.

I have never been good about creating Sympathy cards. I believe those are the hardest to do. However, I have this beautiful garden collage set and I used it for both of the cards. I hope that they don't mind that the cards are the same but it reflects my feelings how I feel about their loss.

If you can, please send a prayer for Jacque's mother and Lidia's dad.
