Bump in the Night

My brother gave my boys the book M is for Magic by Neil Gaiman many years ago. I scared the poop out of them by reading the short story ” The Price” one night before bed.

I played a half-assed game at Bringhurst with my kids on Mother’s Day a few years ago. I… Continue reading Talk Birdie to Me

This phrase makes me laugh! Don’t cha think this would make the perfect girls’ night out invite?! I created today’s card using the sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.   I stamped the JFF Rubber Stamps BCH-Flamingos  image in Club Scrap sandstone ink, colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol. I trimmed the images for placement and adhered with foam… Continue reading Let’s Flamingle!
