Got about 2 hours of sleep last night...went to bed about 3a.m. and these cute little critters of mine decided that I should get up at 5a.m., so that they could go out and bark at the fleas on the lawn. LOL! Aren't my babies cute!
Then the clock went off at 6:00 so I could get up, shower and get ready for appt. with Audiologist, so he could tell me that my hearing is much worse than it was the last time I saw him. He really was no help and I feel that it cost $65.00 out of pocket for nothing.

Anyway, when we left there Mark drug me around for awhile shopping and looking at cars (He is trying to find me a new (used) car). We also went to Good Will, where Mark bought me 2 chairs for my stamp room, as the 2 I have are really bad. No I have a new problem...can't get the seats raised up and they are way to low. I feel like I am sitting on the floor trying to type this. We then stopped off at the Humane Society to get Flea & Tick meds for babies. By the time we got home I was starving and exhausted. Ate something and went and napped for a couple of hours.

Now for the highlight of my day...the mail!!!! It was so great to receive 2 great cards, from StampersUnite & The Best of House Mouse members. The funny part is they are also good friends with each other and my very dear friends too! The first card was a Birthday card from Judy, who is also on the Design Team for Firecracker Designs By Pamela. She made a Birthday card on Technique Junkies and said now she needed someone to send it to. It had 50 on it and I teased her and told her that if she changed the zero to a one, she could send it to me! Well, she did! Here is her great card I'm sorry about cutting the top off..I was lucky to get the picture as my other fur baby (Lucy Twos) wanted to sit on the card and then my batteries on the camera were getting low. I took 6 pictures before I gave up.

She also included these cute little Metal Dots. I don't have any of these and can't wait to play with them.
Thank you so much my sweet Darlin Parlin! You are so sweet and this fantastic card really brought some cheer to a crummy day!

The other card I received was from Kathay for our SUGMS (StampersUnite Monthly swap) and the theme was to concentrate on a technique and send instructions with your card made with this technique.........I am in love with this card!

Kathay's instructions say she used Alcohol Inks in water for the background here. What a fabulous look, huh! It is so realistic! The Koi is by Stamp Zia and the words at the top "Be the Change you wish to see in the world -Ghandi" are from Impression Obsession. Kathay also used Bubbles! I must find out where these are from. What a great effect.Thank you so much Kathay....i can't wait to go try this technique! I just love alcohol inks and now I have another way to use them. Thank you for sending so much information on this card.

Now the whole time I have been trying to do this post, I have had a horrible headache, so I am going to go back to bed. Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment. I would love your feedback on how I am doing, since I have not been blogging long. I am trying to post more often too!

Have a good evening.
