This is one of the cards they will be doing, I got the idea from Laurie Froehlich, I had to totally find where I found this card, I had just printed it out and it had no watermark, so I finally found it and I did my inside different, but oh well. I still love it. Thanks Laurie.

So speaking of birds...wanna see my girls? My Gnomes? I probably should stop calling them the Gnomes eh? Cause you know what they are now. They are getting bigger eh? Must be all those eggs they are holding inside...ha!
Still no eggs, but they sure know who feeds them. I just walk out the back door and they are cooing at me. I think they would really like to be out of their pen too, but I would worry that they would get hurt. We have almost three acres, but the front drive way is not fenced all the way in, and sometimes stray dogs, or the neighbors dog comes in and I would be sick if anything happened to them. I told Jeff if he makes a fenced in area around the pen, and clips their wings then and maybe then I would let them out, but still what stops something from jumping in to get them? This way I know they are protected.
So the other day I got my videos and tapes of the convention classes and also demonstrator theater, I had no idea this would be on there. When I demoed at Regionals they did not give us a tape of that. So I was surprised when Dianne (Hi girlfriend) emailed me and said she saw me on her convention tape. So it came yesterday and Jeff and I sat down to watch it. I had no idea which one they would show, cause I did it like 6 times. Well I'll be darned if they didn't tape the "we don't sell water" demo. Let me explain. One of the techniques I showed was Ink Wash Faux Embossing, where you ink up the paper with a sponge, then inking up the stamp (I used the medallion) with versamark, then spray it with the Stampin' Mist, then lay the inked paper on top of the stamp, and the ink kinda pulls off the paper. Well someone yelled out "can you use water?" and I very seriously (ok, kinda seriously) said "but we don't sell water, we sell Stampin' Mist", well that got a laugh. But really I had not tried water, and I think the mist is necessary cause of the tackiness of it, I mean I don't know. But anyway, after I said that I must have made 20 different faces, so the person was not mad at me for saying that, and in fact one part I made this one face and Jeff said "did you just have three chins?". Well I said something to him, you can imagine what it was...ha! But anyway, I am very glad that Jeff got to see me in action, and he said he was proud of me, and then I forgave him the chin comment.
Well I have to get up early tomorrow, I gotta go get the old dyed out of my hair. So I am gonna say night night!
Have a great Thursday and thanks for stopping in!
