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

One Stamp 2 Ways

Happy World Card Making Day to everyone.
Here is a link to the official site so you can take part
in any special events.  Link here.

I have 2 lovely big windows in my craft room that overlook
my grassy side yard.  It is a haven for squirrels and birds.
This morning I was treated to a beautiful male Cardinal.
He was just hopping and scratching around not knowing
how much enjoyment he was bringing to me.
We didn't have Cardinal's where I lived before.  I'm glad
that I didn't know what I was missing.

This reminded me of two cards that I made using the same Cardinal Stamp.
This stamp came from CowTown Stamps
It is currently out of stock at this time but will find lots of other gorgeous
bird images there.

I've entered these cards in the challenges listed below.

We've been having rain every day for days now.  And, it has still been hot.
 But, last night the tide has turned.....the weather is cool and bright with
sunshine this morning.  I think maybe Fall is on it's way, finally.   Perfect
crafting weather.   

I also found a new to me product that I think will be a real money saver.

It is Helmar Scrap Dots 3 - D Liquid Adhesive.
This is do it yourself glue dots.  You can customize any
size or thickness of your glue dot with this product.
And, best of all....I put in our
