I just read a great blog by  Victoria Elizabeth Barnes .  She writes whatI want to write (but she writes about remodeling) in the way that I want to write it but somehow don't.   Maybe that's because I mostly write in my head, like random thoughts composing themselves into an almost perfect blog post with no spelling or grammatical errors.  But, then I make breakfast and I can't remember ANYTHING.  I want everyone to read my blog, I am desperate for you to read my blog but I forget to write my blog.  You do see that this is a problem.  So, the eggs are congealing in a bowl, my husband is unfed but, drum roll, I am writing this down by hand, with a pen, not too legible but legible enough that I was able to transcribe it.  Should I get a voice recorder app for my phone?  I hate the way I sound on recordings but I have to find someway of getting what is in my head onto my blog. When I sit down to write, no thoughts come.  As I am drifting off to sleep, I write great stuff, remembering none of it in the morning.  Have you had this problem?  Have you solved it?  Please write, send postcards, texts, I need HELP!  I even have a sizable stash of cards that need posting that are rotting in the computer (can cards go bad or will they just fade away?).

Morning glory birthday card
This card took forever.  The coloring part was easy but the assembling drove me nuts. The stamp is from Serendipity Stamps from 2003.  

Silhouette image and Memory Box  Vivienne butterfly die

I  found this beautiful floral paper from Anna Griffin (dated 2001 no less) in my stash and I had TONS of it.  I must have bought it for invites but who remembers.  I stamped my image on X-press blending and colored with copics using online images as a color reference.  I really like the way the image turned out but it looked much brighter than the paper, which also had a very antiquey off white background. GRRR.  The butterflies and dies were spritzed with Mr. Hueys Calico Shine.  This was my Mom's birthday card last September when she turned 91! (just a wee bit late with posting)
