"The perfect blend!" I must confess that before my cup of coffee every morning, I am subhuman. I can grunt or maybe even smile, but my vocabulary is pretty much monosyllabic, and that only if necessary. When Kim at My Favorite Things introduced her coffee set few weeks ago, I needed it. Since I already had my Copic markers out, I used them here. (Copic Colors: B21, B23, E27, E31, E21)
Isn't this a fun stamp? (I only wish I had arms that looked like that!) Background paper is American Crafts, white is SU Whisper White, and blue is from a DCWV textured mat stack that someone gave me a couple of years ago. Mini brads are Making Memories Aged Copper. (I already used up all of my SU aged copper brads from the Vintage brads, but I still have too many silver ones left to order more yet!)
I will do my best to keep up with blogging regularly this month, but I have several projects that must be done before CHA. I thought I'd let you know so that you understand if I miss days now and then. I am almost a month behind on checking the blogs on my Google Reader. The only hope I have of ever getting caught up is to have it mark all posts as read! In spite of my current "behind-ed-ness", we took today as a family day--fixed dinner for the extended family in the area, went to our small-town parade, and saw some amazing fireworks tonight. Every minute and a half, our seven-year-old would ask, "Is THIS the grand finale?" I was relieved when it finally came--almost as relieved as when the horses came at the parade. (Maybe you don't have horses in your parade; but in our parade, the horses are at the end for obvious reasons.) I hope that you had a wonderful Fourth of July as well, and I wanted to say a special thank you to those of you who are serving or have served, or who have loved ones who are serving or have served in the military. Knowing that military life can be tough and thankless, I thank you.
