Loki is distracting


This morning I lost track of time on Pinterest.  I was going to breakfast, and then out for a little shopping, and I realized as I was driving up the street I had turned the completely wrong way, all because I was thinking about Loki.

Dom and Spencer always tease me that I watch "Thor" all day long to see Loki, and just this once, I admit, I did get distracted, lol !

Anyway, today my card is going a couple of places ...


and my card looks like this ...

Hope you like it !!

Get up and try


I see I haven't posted much so far here in 2014.

I closed the doors at Papercraft Star,  very sad for me.

I am still coordinating the design team at The Kraft Journal, but I don't often participate in the challenges, so things are looking a little weak here !

Still juggling the medical aspects of my husband's disease, as he is on a two week schedule for gastric procedures at the hospital.  So so hard for him, and for me to watch him, dealing with all of this.

So, that is a quick update !

This post is going over to Just Us Girls, where I was the guest designer last month.  One of my favorite challenges, for sure !!

Here is their photo inspiration for January ...

and my valentine ...

Hope you like it !!

Palisaides Park


 has this for us this week !!

Here is my winter themed card.

On the inside ...

Most of the country is darned cold right now.  We had temps down to zero in December, but our weather for the next week, in the paper today, looked like this

Rain H 51   L 40
Rain H 50   L 39
Rain H 50   L 40
Rain H 51   L 39

Yup, our usual winter, but with a cute umbrella, as if any one uses one.

I guess this weather in the winter is really hard for some people, as it is so rainy and so much the same.  If you know any history about Lewis and Clark - they wintered over here in Oregon and became nearly suicidal.
