A New Stamp



The cold continues and the snow continues along with the moaning and complaining by a lot of people…especially one man in this house, not mentioning any names of course!!! Not much news around here other than we are finally updating the bathroom a bit and the plumber came today to see what he needed. He wanted to knock a hole in the bedroom wall for access but we said no, we will remove the top part of the shower-round instead. He was surprised the shower-round wasn’t attached to the wall – yeah, not in this house. I think the builders took a few liberties and we were the second owners, not the first, so too late to complain.

I do have a grandson gem for you. Our youngest grandson, Finn, is only 4 and is in Junior Kindergarten but is already learning to read. He knew all the letters of the alphabet when he was two and loves books so it is no surprise to us that he is reading already. Now here’s the funny bit. He sat down to read with his mom with a new book entitled, “Things I like.” He read the title then looks at his mom aghast and says, “should be "things THAT I like". Four year-old 1 -Scholastic books 0. I do believe he will do well in school!

Today’s card is from a stamp from the latest line by Stamping Bella….one of the ones I won before she moved to the states with exorbitant shipping charges to Canada so I don’t bother entering their challenges anymore.



This coloured up much quicker than I thought. Once again it was done with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I always like to have elements in uneven numbers and scattered about the card or scrapbook page. Hence, the blue pillows and two blue buttons. Same with the pink – her dress, the ribbon and tag (Spellbinders) and the small banner. The card was then mounted on pink and then on brown card base.

That’s all for a Wednesday,
Cheers
Violet
