I'm finally getting back my internet speed!

I'll have to show you what I've been up to later but for now, here's a blog quiz. First one is mine, second one is my husband's.

You Would Make an Okay 1930's Wife

You have some of the attributes of an ideal 1930's wife... but you probably didn't intend it to be that way.

July First Sketch

Here's the sketch to try:
And here's what I came up with:

There's two of them going for a Fourth of July swap and the only thing differernt is the embossed circle with the Bird and Vines embossing. I used Matte Accents by Inkssentials on the bird (it's still drying when I took this scan - the edges are dry and it's fairly clear so when it's all dry it should be clear instead of milky). I used my new Cricut to cut the big circles. I had to fool it into thinking it had a bigger piece of paper than it actually did since it kept saying that it couldn't cut a 2-inch circle. It did, and it had left over paper too!

I'm going to a crop this weekend so I should have lots of pages done if I can get some time to plan what to take.

Happy Fourth of July!!!!

I'm sure I'll have some pictures after Friday night but for now, here's some quizzes I took to entertain you.
You answered 8 questions correctly out of 10. If you scored a perfect 10, you're ready for a political office. If you got 7 or better, you're ready to vote. Fewer than 7 right? Ask an immigrant to teach you about our nation's history.
(In my defense, I'd like to say that I missed the first question because i was trying to decided which was correct: Signing the Declaration or Adopting the Declaration but hey, 80% isn't bad after all.)

What Your These Fireworks Say About You

You are focused, single minded, and intense.

You don't let others see your intensity often, and when they do, they are quite surprised.

You burn brightly, but you also burn steadily.

You have the endurance to get the one thing you desire most.


You Are a Summer Person

You are energetic, outgoing, and active.

You love to be out and about... hanging out with friends or getting things done.

Summer is the perfect time for you to be as hyper as you want to be.

In fact, during the rest of the year you feel half-asleep!

Yellow/Blue/White Kids cards

I had Kids Birthday cards to make for a swap and on a different card group, the challenge was to do Light blue, Yellow and White. So here's what I did. I combined them both to create these cards. The part of the white paper that got trimmed off was put inside as a border.
