A Sweet Image


A bright and sunny but very windy day here in Ontario. This morning I had a couple of errands to run to two different places so Joe decided he would go too and that we should get some groceries while we were out…sounded like a good idea….. but then he said we also needed to stop at the Bread Depot (best, freshest and cheapest bread ever)…and he had to stop at the bank….and get gas…..and lets stop in at Canadian Tire while we are there for that special pot cleaner you like….and we’ll renew the license plate…..hoo boy. The license bureau is in a plaza and it was in darkness and the electric company was there trying to fix the problem so that was a wasted trip…..we made the second trip later on to get the sticker for the license plate…and it was so busy!  Instead of a couple quick errands and home it took us hours….but then again, we stopped to chat with a friend we ran into and then had Chinese food for lunch. The day is almost over and I haven’t made it down to my lower studio (aka the basement) do make any cards or do some scrapbooking….maybe after supper.



One of my faithful readers, jinxxxygirl mentioned she had the scammer saying she owed back taxes but she knew she didn’t so she didn't fal for it. Jinxxxygirl has her own blog and is wonderful artist. Check it out at: http://learningtojustbreathe.blogspot.com



 Anyway, if you are new to the Internet be aware of those who track you down to try to scare you into giving them money. Remember this:  

a)    The government does not call you if you owe them money. They send out letters or registered letters but they do not call. The scammers will even threaten to send the police to your house if you don’t send them money….tell them that would be a good idea and they should be there when the police show up….they usually hang up then.

b)    The other popular scam is the computer scam. The scammer will call and say they are from Microsoft and they noticed your computer was not working but they can fix it on-line if you pay them $$$ and give them access to your computer. DO NOT FALL FOR THIS. Microsoft has no idea who has their computers and MICROSFOT DOES NOT CALL PEOPLE to fix their computers!



Enough about that. Here is today’s card.

 


This sweet image is from Stamping Bella but I have no idea if it is still available or not. I had the background made ….from left over pieces of paper taped together at the back…but never used it. Some days, if I’m not sure what I feel like doing, I just sit and make backgrounds from paper from the stash and set them aside to use when needed. This one was run through a brick wall embossing folder as well. The image was coloured with Prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol….my favourite way to colour images. It was die cut with a Spellbinder’s die and then glued onto a piece of brown and then I hand cut around the edge. The sentiment is from another word set and it was stamped on brown cardstock and then I cut them apart and glued them on. The entire thing was then glued to a Stampin’ Up blue card base. A bow was tied and glued to the right edge.



That’s all for a windy Tuesday, September 27, 2016.





Cheers
