A Whipper Snapper Hello


I am so happy to be back on my blog today! Yesterday we lost power and it was out for what feels like forever! I was in such withdrawal last night! No TV, no stamping, no blogging, nothing! The only good part is that it meant no cooking either! We "had to" eat out. lol! This morning it was still out and my DH and I held flashlights for each while we got ready for work. Let's just say that things got a little "testy". I held the light too high, then too low etc... He had no right to be crabby because I claimed dibs on the morning crabbiness in this marriage many, many years ago! Oh well, we've made up now and things are back to normal. Well, I'm back and guess what? I'm off tomorrow so I have a three day weekend! I'm gonna clean my house and catch up on some challenges. Anyway, I made this card last weekend as I was practicing with my Copic markers. (Yeah, I know, I have no idea what I'm doing yet). This stamp is from Whipper Snapper and it was a "must have" for me when I saw it. I make lots of "Get Well", and "Thinking of You" cards with it. I think it's so cheerful! Not much else going on over here, I'm gonna go check out all your blogs and see what you've been up to while I've been sitting in the darkness... (hugs)
