New Digs for the Birds!

Pin It

GiF, girls and boy!

Seriously, I hope that whatever is wrong with Blogger clears up over the weekend. So, if this post looks te
rrible ... some parts bold, some not; some text in black, some in blue; some sections underlined, some not; some text in one font, other text in another font ... it's 'cuz Blogger is having issues, okeedokee? I've struggled with this for hours and I'm finally saying "uncle." I give up ... and I do apologize for the mess, but I can't fix it.

Anyway, as threatened promised here's another project created with this uber-kewl craft stamp from Stamps Happen. Click
HERE to take a look at this fun and versatile craft stamp from Janlynn.

I stamped the image on red and blue card stock and cut out all the l'il birdies. I created a "house" from textured paint sample cards, added some "windows," and stamped my sentiment.

For the rest of the provocative products I used in this project, refer to the Supply List, below.

So, yesterday I had Jury Duty. I would love to be chosen for a Jury, but my legal background always gets me excused. Drat the luck!

A lady seated next to me, one of the prospective jurors, was surprised by the definition of voluntary manslaughter: an intentional killing that occurs while the defendant is under the immediate influence of sudden passion arising from an adequate cause, such as when a spouse's mate is found in a "compromising position."

"See, I have a problem with that passion business," she said. "During my first marriage, I came home and found my husband in bed with my next-door neighbor. All I did was divorce him. I had no idea that I could have shot him!" She didn't get picked either ...

Have a great weekend my imaginary friends!

OMGosh, I wish you could take my place. I have jury duty tomorrow. My fingers are crossed that my group doesn't have to report. At least now I know how to get out of it if it is a manslaughter case.
