My Challenge

I'm on a card!! Look! It's me.  Okay, it's not really me.  It's Mrs. Comfy but she sure looks like me right down to her little laptop.  She is wearing tiger print leggings.... RRAWWWR.  This is a card that needs to be seen at close range (click on this version and it will open up as a larger copy)  The thumbnail doesn't show that two patterned papers were cut diagonally for the background.  Also the tag on the right bottom is pretty dark - it just reads "happy birthday".  What does show up is my dollar store flowers.  I bought a bag of them for a dollar and I want to go back and get more to hoard for later.

Winter is still with us it seems.  It was bitterly cold out today.  At least it felt bitterly cold to me.  It sure was bright and sunny though.  I stayed in, huddled under a blanket in the family room all day, but went out for 15 minutes to the bank at the end of the day.  Up until that point I'd planned on barbecuing dinner. No way once I made that little outing.   I guess because my friend and I were talking about subs on the phone today that put the idea in my head so subs it was.  For my health I stick to turkey, lite mayo and lettuce.  The huge goopy meatball subs are for somebody else in this life.

I'm still pretty cold so I have to get my gumption up to go down and craft.  I should get one of the girls to go down and get the fire going and warm the room up ahead of time.  I'm a genius!  I'm torn between crafting and helping my daughter set up a new secure network for our various computers. Best not to ask why.  We are not a household of computer geniuses at all, at all.

There are tons of blog challenges going all over the net.  Here's my challenge to anyone reading my blog.  Find one person you can say something kind to before the day's end.  They'll feel good and I promise you will too.


  1. Hi, Ali! I love your card and you did a great job of coloring Mrs. Comfy too! I was reading your bio and was sorry to learn that you're awaiting an organ transplant. I truly hope a suitable donor is found very soon. I also noticed that we seem to have a lot in common. Some of our favorite movies and music are identical and we both have a passion for paper crafting. I want to thank you for visiting my blog and for your very sweet comments. If you have a problem finding a box let me know and I'll send you my next Truvia box. I don't know if it would make the trip from Texas to Canada undamaged but I would sure try it! I'm going to have a look around your blog while I'm here but I will be your newest follower. Your attitude alone is enough for me!
