My tired brain

Well, I found me a blinkie. I found this wonderful site, Shabby Blogs, and I got a cute blinkie and a cute background. I had to pick out something that would go with the 3 dots in my header because I don't know how to get rid of them. Oh, well at least it looks more like a blog.I'm really thankful forthe ones that stop by and I even have 27 followers. It amazes me that some people like my work enough to leave a comment. I love comments. I think most of my family really doesn't understand my obsession. They like the cards I make, but this doesn't count as anything important. You know, it doesn't generate any income. It just keeps me sane. Sorry to ramble. I'm just drained from trying to figure this out.
But now I'm very happy. Tomorrow I might post my hubby's b-day card. I think I'm through with it. Hope everyone had a great Sunday and hope tomorrows wonderful, too.

Mother-in-law Birthday

June is heavy with birthdays in my family.There's mine, my husband, 2 of my 4 sisters and my mother-in-law and a sister-in-law. There's also father's day. This card is for my mother-in-law. It's a 6x6 card and kind of thick so I had to make a box to hold it. I think she will like it.Would love to know what you think.

I'm a winner!

This week has not been great. I've had what could have been a really bad problem with my eyes. Today I went to the doc and my retina is OK. So I was feeling pretty good when I got home. Then I got on the computer to check on the Gypsy update and I had an email that I was a winner.
I visited this wonderful blog, Craftini Time, and I won something. I don't know what it is, but it doesn't matter.I NEVER win anything. So now I can relax a little bit while I wait for a surprise to come in the mail. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I just hope for peaceful and no bad surprises.

Grateful to a sweet blogger.

This sweet lady gave me instructions and I actually got them to work. I still haven't been able to install a counte though. I filled out the form and it didn't work . So once I got the button transfer to work, I tried again. They said my username was taken {probably from when I filled out the first form}. Anyway, I emailed the people about my problem, but I haven't heard back.

Blog help

Hi, I need help. The only thing I know how to do is post my pics. MPS {Ithink} had a counter anyone could get so I tried that. Filled out the form, no counter. I've tried to "grab" buttons and blinkies, no dice. It always says to "copy" the html and "paste" in to your blogs gadgets, no luck When I right click, it doesn't allow me to "copy or paste." I can't seem to do or add anything but what's there. Any help would be appreciated.

New baby on the way

A dear family member's youngest daughter is finally pregnant.

Hi, I need to answer a question someone asked in a comment, but I don't know how to get in touch with them. So I will answer it here.
BrandyC wanted to know which cart I got a cross from. It was Easter 2010. It was the inside "leftover" when you cut out the outline of the cross. I sprayed adhesive on it and glittered it, then I repeated the adhesive and glitter. Hope you see this.
