Wanna See "The Birds and The Bees?"

Pin It

TGiF! Hey, did this week have an extra day in it?!? Sure feels that way ... maybe it's just me.

Okeedokee then, today's card was created for SCS's Sketch Challenge, SC224, using this uber-kewl craft stamp from Stamps Happen. For a look at the sketch I followed, clicky HERE. To go straight to the SC224 photo gallery, clicky HERE. For the ginormous view of my card, clicky on the photo.

For this card, I paper-pieced the focal image using card stock from Papertrey Ink. These l'il birds are sooooo stinkin' cute and I've got another idea or three up my sleeve for them. If you want to give this craft stamp a good home, and you should 'cuz it's bee-you-tea-full, you can purchase it from Janlynn "Stamps Happen," HERE.

Soooooo, Sheila called me last night and told me that she was having a problem with her password.

"The problem is that whenever I type the password, it just shows little stars," she explained.

"Oh, no, you don't have a problem," I answered, "those asterisks are to protect you, say, if someone were standing behind you they wouldn't be able to read your password."

"Yeah, okay, maybe," Sheila answered, "but they show up even when there is no one standing behind me."

"Here," I said, "talk to the computer genius." And handed the phone over to the DH.

Boy, it took a long time to explain that to her ... the DH is still mad at me!

Enjoy your weekend and stay safe!
