Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

The Party is Over and I have a Winner

Recognize your logo Jo?
I hope so because you have won my Blog Candy Prize
for the Charisma Cardz Blog Hop.
Congratulations Jo.
3 digi stamps
2 digi stamps and one set of digi papers.
Contact me at
with Blog Hop Winner in the subject line.
Congratulations again Jo.
Thanks for hopping along with Charisma Cardz.

I tried a new to me technique to make this tag. I love how this
turned out.

I recently bought all of the Ranger Distress Ink Pads.
I was so excited to finally be using them. I've wanted them all for the
longest time. I tried direct to paper distressing with Tattered Rose, Fired Brick and
Aged Mahogany. OMG, these blend so nicely. I found this great clip art image
and cropped out the main image along the sculpted border.
Added glittered metal dots and shear fabric flowers from my stash and
trimmed one edge with distressed paper lace.

This is where I bought my Distress Ink Stamp Pads.

We are having such cold weather here in South Carolina. Even here
at the beach. We've had snow sprinkles twice this winter. It just isn't
supposed to be that cold here. Brrrrrr!
Where are my long john's?
While we are waiting for it to warm up we are redoing our
sun room. We are putting new flooring down. I'm so excited about
doing this. We had pulled up some horrible indoor/outdoor carpeting
and have had bare plywood floors for such a long time.
