Under the Mistletoe - THT025, CAS43

This morning my card is for two challenges......CAS43, to remake a card you have made before, which was this one:, and also for the Treehouse Thursday (THT025), which was a color challenge.

The colors were to be black, white, olive green and Real RED! Now if you know me even a little bit, you know that RED is my favorite color, and that RED, black and white is my favorite combination!! Adding the olive green gave me a tiny pause, but I think this card has just the right amount. I'm still making my Christmas cards, and hadn't inked up this wonderful silhouette, so I guess it was about time. The mistletoe is popped up, and the snowflake on the tag has an olive green brad. I polished it off with a satin white bow. If you should want to join in on the Treehouse Thursday challenge for this week, be sure to put THT025 in your keyword.

It's bleak and gloomy here, but the orders for the grands for Christmas are arriving every day. I am wrapping as they get here. I can't believe how the time has flown. Tomorrow is December 1st. WOW! Have a wonderful day, do something fun, be creative, and be kind. Hugs to you all.

FS CASING CarrollAnn

Today's FS is CarrollAnn, whose gallery has such lovely cards in it, that choosing just one to CASE is very difficult. I got a very late start this morning, so I chose a quick and easy one.

I changed the embossing folder and the sentiment to go with it, and punched flowers instead of primas. The rest is pure can you tinker with perfection????

I'll be back with another CASE of her fabulous work later, when I wake up a little more. The sun is shining, the day is beautiful, and I have some mojo, so I think I'll take advantage of it!!

Here is the secoond card, called a side-step, which I first saw in her gallery. Hers was RED and white, and fairly simple. When I was making this one, I got carried away, and kept adding more and more. I think to do one again, I would be more frugal. Tell me what you think, okay??

I'm really sorry....I uploaded this in too small a size for you to look at very well. If you go to my gallery on SCS by going to my sidebar, you can see this better. You can also just click on it and it will open into a bigger window. If you want to leave a comment, you can do it in either place. I'm done for the day, now to clean up!

SSHP09 Hats Off!

You know I love humorous sentiments. This is one of my favorites, and I couldn't resist it today for the Saturday Spotlight challenge. I even stamped a veil on acetate so it would fit the words!!
I hope you get a kick out of this card. I love all the pinks and yellows, and the touches of black.
Thanks for looking, and please check out my IC below.

Happy Birthday Inspiration

I made this card for the Inspiration Challenge this morning after seeing this baby blanket in my favorite color combination. One of my sweetest friends is celebrating a birthday in a few days, and I wanted to get this in the mail this morning (Hi Joanne!)

I liked both the striped side of the blanket, and the flowered one, so I used both on my card. It's a little busy I guess, but also fun, I think. I hope you do too.

Thanks to those of you who wished my Mom a HB...she LOVED it!! She's back home, with all her presents and a BAGFULL of cards we made over Thanksgiving. Have a great day, all!!

Flower Replay for LSC

Happy Day after!! We are still celebrating, as today is Mom's REAL birthday! She says she is NOT OLD, just not getting any younger. She is 87 today...wish her a HB!

These two cards are for the LSC today...make two cards with the same theme and images, but two different layouts. We had fun with some great dp (that has no name on the back...alas!).

It's raining here...we are staying IN, I think (there's always the allure of M's and ACM), but we will be eating leftovers and making cards. You're probably doing the same!! Good for US!!!!! Have a great day, and thanks for joining us here.

Another Piece of Pie!

For the WT, sweets, I chose to make something least I think so. We had Thanksgiving dinner here, and ate too much because it was so yummy! Aren't I a humble cook!! We had all the fixin's, plus three kinds of pie and birthday cake. We started the morning off with Mimosas and Bloody Mary's, and it was all downhill from there.

The kids were busy together, and really great, and now that everyone but Mom has gone home, the peace and quiet is wonderful.

I thought the computer generated sentiment was really appropriate for a day like today, when we overeat and it's OK. I hope you think it's fun too.

For BLACK FRIDAY, we are staying in. No shopping for us. see you tomorrow for the LSC.

Gingerbread Guy and the Belli Challenge Today

Busy day today! The Belli Challenge and the Sketch Challenge, and Mom arrives for Thanksgiving.

For the sketch, Roxie gave us something funky.... a shape to copy. I really needed to make a RED card, so I picked out this Paper Patch print, and after I cut it out, I realized I would have to flip it so the cookies would be going in the right direction. Not the worst disaster. I really like how it turned out, and if I can keep my wits about me, I may try another.

Mom arrives after the hairdresser. We'll make the stuffing, the cranberry sauce, get the veggies ready, and find some time to make a card or two.

Have a happy Thanksgiving with friends and family. This is our favorite holiday.... great food, company, no craziness, just FUN!! Love to you all!

Earl is C-c-cold!! CBC #79

The Creative Belli Challenge #79 is to use chipboard. We all have chipboard in our stash of supplies......why don't we ever use it?? I used two pieces in the challenge this week....under the sentiment which I computer generated, and for the layered snowflake.

Our sponsor this week is StretchNBubbles. We were sent three digi stamps from which to choose our image for the card or project. I chose this silly penguin (his name is Earl!), and made him chilly caribbean blue. I hope you like him, and that you will join us in the challenge. Put CBC79 in your keyword, and also go to our blog and connect with Mr. Linky. Check my sidebar to see the rest of the uploads by the Design Team by clicking on their names, and be sure to visit our sponsor StretchNBubbles for their fabulous images!!

Two More Cards....A Busy Day!

This has been a busy day. I have been to the grocery for the last stuff for Thanksgiving, and boy! was it mobbed. Out to lunch with DH, food is put away, and I have done two challenges in addition to the CC. I used a bit of RED today, as you can see.

The Cardinal in the wreath is for the DDC. Joanne (sleepyinseattle) filled in for a design team member with computer woes. She DARED us to make a card with a wreath made of stamps, and there would be bonus points if there were flowers. I hope you will join us this sure to put DDC in your keyword.

The MMTPT69 challenge today involves going to Grand Old Opry country, where Johnny Cash sang a song about Rose. The teapot is white with a beautiful rose on the side. I went with the country theme, and here is Santa singin' his little heart out with one of his reindeer. The song is for Rosie, of course. You can join us in this challenge too. I'm done card making for the to make some beef stew for supper, and clean up the mess I made in my room! See you!

A Sample for the CC!

I got an email from Betty Wright who is the hostess for the Color Challenge today on SCS. She asked three of us (Judi Rose, Karen Barber and me) if any of us would like to make a sample using:
Bermuda Bay
Old Olive
Pretty in Pink
any neutral ...........and......
if we were so inclined to add a "dessert" to the menu, a plaid!
Interestingly enough, we all three said YES! This is mine. I hope you can see the three snow guys are about to start a snowball fight! Oh those snow guys... you can't keep them from playing!!
My card is long and tall to accommodate the three circles, and to balance off the curve punch edges. Thanks Betty for letting me take part in your challenge today!!

Ornaments of Peace (SSHP08)

Are you in shock? Can you believe that I didn't make this card in RED??? Today, the Clean and Simple Challenge was to make a card using sponging. I also did some masking with my new ornament punch.

I love a five minute card!! I think I may make a few more in different colors (RED for sure!), because it is so easy, and I really like the look. I punched out the ornament out of scrap paper, used it as a mask, sponged Bermuda Bay ink and stamped with the swirl from Priceless. I added some copper cord and a sentiment...........and done. I hope you like it.

Have a great day, and thanks for joining me here!

Always.......for Birgit

The Featured Stamper today at SCS is Birgit Edblom. Her cards are always extraordinarily beautiful. They are elegant, simple, and very European in feeling, I guess because she lives in Sweden.
I was so excited to see she had been chosen this week, but a little cowed, because copying her card is difficult... not because her cards are hard to CASE, but I wanted to be able to do her justice. I think I might have succeeded. I hope she likes what I have done (you too). I used an image she sent me a while ago. Hugs, Birgit!

In The Winter Forest

I don't often make square cards, but I thought this was better in a smaller format........ 4 x 4. The Inspiration Challenge this morning comes from a website that has interesting buttons. I chose one with a deer that looked a lot like the baby deer in Forest Friends (SU). After the bg was done, the perspective was all wrong. How fabulous that I own a gazillion punches, because this one by Martha Stewart of the deer is perfectly sized. I made Mrs. by eliminating the antlers.

I put a lot of sparkle on the trees, added a ribbon and glittery snowflake, and that's it. Hope you like it. Have a great weekend, my friends!

CIC2 Unenthusiastic Turkey

I found this clipart turkey, and about died laughing!! If you have ever seen anything so unenthusiastic in your life before this, PLMK!! I thought the sentiment was just perfect. We have a friend who has a fantastic sense of humor, and when I saw the look on the turkey's face, I automatically thought of her.

This will go out in the mail today so she will get it in time to enjoy it for Thanksgiving.

This card is Joan Ervin's fault. I went to her blog and she had a challenge posted for the Clearly Inspired Challenge, and I just had to do it too. Their challenge posts bi-weekly on Friday, and today was this wonderful sketch. It's uploaded to SCS at CIC2, just in case you'd like to do it too.

Thanks for looking.

New Moon Cardinal

Lois Bak (clownmom) was the hostess for the StampinB's challenge today. She chose to use the colors RED, black and white, and there had to be a moon. This was in honor of the movie New Moon which came out tonight (My DD is at the Midnight showing!).

Because RED was included, and also because these are my fav colors together, I HAD to do this challenge. thanks Lois!!

The LSC today was to make a long tall or a small tall card. I chose to make the small size, 6 x 3 1/2 folded. I hope you like my punched bird and the moon, tinged with RED. How could I resist???!!!!

Cardinal Thank You

I'd like to thank MariLynn (Mississippi McGiver) for a fabulous tutorial on making birds out of punches. She was also responsible for the MMTPT68 Challenge this week. Since her teapot had cardinals on it, I thought it only fair to use her tutorial which I have saved for a LONG time!

The WT today was to make a thank you card, regarding what we are thankful for.... so this is really a multiple. I am thankful for RED (of course), and cardinals, and birds in general, but this is specifically for my mom, who also loves cardinals. I am so thankful for her.....the best Mom you could ask for, and the best FRIEND you could hope to have. I send her cards for all sorts of reasons, but this is the perfect reason to send one.....I am so thankful to have HER.

Thanks for looking. Hugs to you all.

Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge #16

The Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge this week comes to us from Pottery Barn. Clean, simple lines, lots of white, and touches of brown and.... dare I say it? RED!

Of course I had to keep the clean lines and the white on white, but I had to add a little of my signature color too.

Below is my card for the DDIC. I hope you can see that there is the tiniest bit of pattern in the
wallpaper behind the couch. I really wanted to have a RED couch too, but it just didn't work. Please join us in the DDIC this week. Post your card or project with DDIC16 in the keyword so we can enjoy it. Please also visit the rest of the Design Team in my sidebar to see what they have done with this challenge!

Santa DUDE!

It's 5 AM, and I've been up since 2:30. I hate when I wake up and can't go back to sleep. I've gotten a few things accomplished. My DD sent me a list for her two boys for Christmas, so I went on Amazon to look at what they wanted. After a consult with DH, I'll place an order. I also got a card made for my 15 year old grandson.
I thought this image was perfect for a teenage boy. Kinda cool, and DUDE is still a word we hear once in a while. I kept it pretty simple. I didn't want to make it girly with ribbon and stuff, so I used only a silver star brad and the puffy silvery thingy on his hat. I hope you can see the scoring on the plain RED band across the bottom. I think he will get a kick out of it.....and I hope you do too. Have a great day. I'll probably be napping! LOL!

Happy Christmoose!

I've had a busy day. Uploading after 2 P.M. is unusual for me. I saw my Neurosurgeon this morning after I had some x-rays of the work he did exactly one year ago today. The surgery was a complete success, and he was very pleased. I have some bone spurs at C-2,3, and 7. That explains the pain. We'll leave that alone for now.

Did the rounds of the bank, post office, M's, voted, out for lunch, car to garage for oil change and general check up, and I'm home for the rest of the day.

This is my card for the CC and the DDC. Anne (Itsapassion) is this week's hostess, who dared us to use plaid and a button. It fit in perfectly with the artichoke, choc. chip, and RED for the Color Challenge. Before I forget, please join us in the Dare, and put DDC in your keyword.

Now, I have another card to post. Last night I had a chance to do the RESQ23 Challenge. Erin, of Doodle Palace, posted a free digital stamp of the cutest gingerbread couple for a one-time use, and I couldn't resist joining in on this special challenge. Here it is, and I hope you like it.

Outside the Box Snowman

It's always nice to come home, even when your vacation has been fun! The best part of being home, sleeping in your own bed aside, is having ALL your supplies at hand, including your OWN comfy computer!!

For the TLC today, Outside the Box (which I love) is this fun snowman and his RED bird. I paper pieced the scarf and bird, and used one of my favorite punches. It's nice to make something in RED, and I'm sure you are shocked that I didn't bring my favorite color on vacation!!!

I used mostly markers to color this guy, and a little painting with gray. he is popped up on his nestie, and I tied a nice plaid bow to make this a little festive. That's it. Hugs to all!

Owl on a Flower Branch

Here is the piece I chose for inspiration. Stef found a very interesting website for us to look at today.

I am still on vacation, and with a very limited choice of supplies, so I had to go quite a way to find something I could use. I thought this owl was an unusual find.

I brought along a Bosscut diecut of an owl, that I ordered because of a card I had seen by Birgit (Biggan). I put him together without the directions, so I probably did it all wrong....but I think it's kind of cute anyway. I put this sweet little guy on a branch of Bloomin' Beautiful flowers, extended the branch, and added another little branch and a leaf. I popped up some blossoms and finished it off with my fav Curve Punch and some piercing. If I had some sponges, I wouldn't have had to use the gel pen. Oh well, next time, when I'm home and have more supplies.
This is our last day of vacation. The week went fast, and I'm so glad I had the opportunity to make some cards and SHOP, SHOP, SHOP!! Thanks for looking, and HUGS to you all.

Penguin Presents

This morning's challenge was to use limited supplies.

Since we are still on vacation in NH, limited supplies is what I have!! Also we were to use a bird of some kind, and a penguin is a bird, right?

I love the E K Success punches, and I brought three of them with me. I just couldn't bear to leave them all alone at home. I think they add so much without being overwhelming.

Fortunately, I bought some nice RED plaid ribbon, and I used it here as embellishment, along with some gold cord made into a bow.....a penguin deserves some jazzing up, don't you agree? I also did a few rows of piercing. A fast card, but I love the results. I am finding I really enjoy the CAS cards. We are off to Big Lots, Joanne's, Stamping Memories, and Hart's Turkey Farm for lunch. (With a turkey dinner on my mind, I couldn't bring myself to use a turkey stamp today!) Hugs to all!

Two Faux's!!!

Good afternoon Today we took our last trip to scrap/stamp stores. This trip was very disappointing. I bought nothing!!! But DH walked around patiently, and was so surprised when I said, "Let's go!". We ate out (I had fabuous stuffed haddock and some COLD wine.....wonderful).

Back at our condo, I combined two challenges: the WT, which was Faux Texture, and the new tutorial on the home page, Faux Bricks (thanks Birgit!!) For the texture, I brought in a pinecone from the ground...they are everywhere in NH!... and squeezed it to get out all the seeds. Then I rolled it in Suede ink on white paper. The rest you can figure out just by looking. No more car trips....we'll be reading, eating, resting, and one of us will be stamping and doing crossword puzzles and sudokos. See you tomorrow.

Sketch and Belli Challenges

I think you are gonna get real sick of seeing this image! I brought very few images, colors, dp with me on vacation!
For the SC today, I used the same Anna Griffin dp, which I just LOVE! The other colors are artichoke and celery. I watercolored the blossom in rose romance and old olive, and added piercing, as I have only one ribbon with me, silver gray. The lighting here is not great, so I thought I'd better tell you what I had done.
I love this sketch, based on a card by Dawn (flowergal36), whose things I adore!!
DH and I are off to Manchester, if the Paper Tree is open on this Holiday. Its just before ten, so I'll give them a call first. Is he not the BEST, to take me places where I spend our $??? I'll be checking in later on SCS and on your blogs. Make it a great day!! HUGS!

Creative Belli Challenge #78

Our sponsor for this week's challenge is Creative Cuts & More. They sent us some fabulous die cuts! You really need to check out their website. I used their Tag Card with Tag-side Opening #P082. The wonderful color was perfect for a vintage Christmas card.

The challenge is to make a card with Christmas embellishment, using what you already have in your stash. I have had these jingle bells for ages, and thought they dressed up the ribbon wonderfully! Of course, I had to have some RED, so the thin border behind the holly leaf dp and the ribbon called out to me. I hope you like my tag card, and that you will join us in the challenge. Upload your card to our blog, which is on the left of my post, and please look at the cards made by the girls of the design team. Just click on their names. If you post to SCS, put CBC78 in your keyword. Join us every other Wednesday for a fun challenge!

3challenges, 2 Cards....Still on Vacation!!

The color challenge today is to use Kraft, vanilla, and Bravo Burgundy. Wasn't it lucky I had this gorgeous Anna Griffin paper with a vanilla bg, and variegated flowers containing the burgundy.

DH and I went out early this morning, and I spent some time (and money) in two stamping/craft stores. One of the things I bought was a fun package of primas, and used them here. I also used my favorite new punch, the EKsuccess Curve punch.
I also did the combined DDc and MMTPT67 challenge.

The hostess for this week's Doubledog Dare Challenge is Charlene (LilLuvsStampin), who DARED us to make a card to go with the MMTPT67 story, ending with our weekly tea party. I bought some fab silver gray metalic dp and used it with Classic Pickups, and a pkg. of clear stamps that have words for transportation.
My story is that the truck is the color of the dust in the attic where our poor teddybear has been languishing for years. After picking up supplies and a host of seamstresses to repair Dusty's fur, we'll have tea, and discuss who will be custodian of our re"fur"bished bear. Join us and be sure to put DDC and MMTPT67 in your keyword.
I'm having fun on vacation...especially because I can take part in card making too!!

CAS40 Penguin ... COOL!

I guess the COOL must refer to my DH, who brought along a computer on vacation so I could not only LOOK at my sites, but ADD to them as well. What a guy! no wonder I have kept him for 46 years!! WOO-HOO!!!!
With truly limited supplies (because you can't take it ALL), I was able to do the CAS today... white and one color. Since I have no RED, or flowers, or brads, or punches except for a very few, minimal stamps, paper, etc., I really am only able to make simple cards. I used a marker to make the flower center. I think it's kinda cute. I hope you like it too. The amount of blog checking I can do depends on when we are back in our condo. I hope to see you all later today. Have a good one.

Giraffe Friend

On the far right is a Jonathan Adler ceramic giraffe I chose for the Inspiration
Challenge at SCS today. I just adore giraffes, and have a collection of them.
When I saw the adler website stef had chosen for today, I went right to the
section that was called 'menagerie', and there it was. It just so happened I
also owned the CM hexagon punch set, so I got right to work.

This is the card I made keeping in mind the giraffe was white, and the spots were in a variety of colors. I hope you like my interpretation of the wonderful ceramic translated to paper.
After making this card, I packed up the stamping supplies I am taking with me on vacation. I couldn't leave things here..... what would I do in the morning and evening????? We leave in the morning. see you in a week.

Winter Sprite with Stickers

The Ways To Use It Challenge today was to use stickers. The whole idea was to create an easy and fast card. HAH!!! Not so fast or easy. First of all, I gave all my stickers to my grands to play with, so I really had to hunt for something that could pass for a sticker. All I could find were these ..... and blue didn't seem to be in my plan today. I finally made a decision......not quick or easy, and this is what came out. I kept adding things, until I finally said, "enough!" I don't think this will be a card I will reproduce in my future, but at least it got rid of the few stickers I had remaining in my stash.

I leave today to take care of Nate and Sam (15 and 12) while parents work or go away. Then packing for our timeshare in NH from the 8th to the 15th. This will probably be my last upload for a long while, but I send you hugs, and will see you when we return.

Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge #15

The DDIC today comes from this image ..... Pacifica Garden Gift Set. I thought this set was very pretty, with the gold and purple. Then I realized there was more pink, with some yellow and blue. This threw me for a loop. I had the hardest time making a decision. Would I go with the shape? Could I possibly get all the colors in?

So here's what I did. I made two cards. I thought I would pick the one I liked better, and upload it, and say, THERE! The problem was, they were so different I couldn't make a decision.
One uses the shape and combines the colors in a similar pattern. The other uses the theme of Pacific, which means peaceful and serene. So the upshot is, two postings. I couldn't decide. I guess it's up to you.
Please check out the rest of the team. Their blogs are in the left hand panel and you can highlight their names. If you join us in this challenge and upload to SCS, please put DDIC in your keywords.

#2.......Nature Pauses

This is so not like me!! I made this card in five minutes out of a recycled card I couldn't bear to throw away, and two colors of metallic paper, blue and silver. Sorry the silver doesn't really show true, but photographing metallics is always a trying experience. I added some sparkle snowflakes to match the card. Altogether, it's very shiny and bright.

Thanks for looking!

Cardinals and Snowflakes.....A Shadowbox

The sketch this morning was very interesting! I flipped the diagram, and made a shadow box. I don't know if you can see it, but the bg is trees in the snow. I used my new MS cardinal punch, but had to cut off the legs and feet (EEEEEWWW!!) because I didn't want the birds to be standing. The pieces are really small, and they were hard to hold while sponging. You should see my RED fingers!! Have a fun and creative day!! I'm off to check out YOUR blogs!!

CC and DDC - 2nd post today. MMTPT66 Below

First I have to thank Janice (catcrazy at SCS) for sending me a whole bunch of these images. I asked for one, and she sent 18!! How wonderful is that!! Hugs to you, Janice!!

The hostess with the mostest for the Doubledog Dare Challenge today is Fran (Francie G.) who DARED us to make a card with at least 4 layers, and ribbon or cord. I combined the Dare with the Color Challenge, which was to use neutrals, and use an image to make the card POP! Using the bright colors and Merry Christmas ribbon worked really well here. I hope you like it.


We're off to a tea party with Mrs. Claus. She has wonderful cookies, fudge, peanut brittle, and other yummy lo-cal(!) stuff for us. She has found a way to help non-tech Santa this year. She got in touch with the scientists in England who cloned a sheep. Remember that? Well, she asked them if they could combine a rocket with a reindeer, clone it, and send eight of them to the North Pole. They said they could, and did.

Santa will be calling his reindeer by different names this year. He'll call to his team....Hi-Yo-Silver, as the lead reindeer (clone #1) has that name. The rest are Argentous, Chrome, Luster, Metallic, Amalgam, Aluminum, and Tinny (he's the little one on the end). Rudolph has retired to Florida.

All of this is rather silly, but it's fun on Tuesday to be a little around the bend (some of us are that way daily!). This time I ended up with a card I can actually send. Hope you like it.

Projects for kids - Thanksgiving

I spent a frustrating morning trying to do the new technique. No good. I should have given up in the beginning, because I broke my CB!! DH took it apart, and the white metal had broken. Totally unfixable!! SOB!!

After I got over the fact I had ruined my cb, I started some projects for Thanksgiving, and thought I would show them to you for your constructive criticism (or even NON-constructive!)While the grands are waiting for dinner to be ready, I usually have some crafty thing for them to do. In past years, they have traced everyone's hands and made a book; they have colored turkeys; they have done mazes and word searches; they have made marshmallow and apple turkeys, etc. The kids range in age from 15 to 8, so it has to be something they can all do.

This year they will make candy place cards for each other, and for the accordian tag booklet, each person will get to write their name, age, and what they are thankful for. I have left enough tags for all the adults too (this year, my eldest son and family will be in FL, so there will only be 11 of us.). This will be part of the Centerpiece on the table. I think it will be fun. PLMK what you think too. Thanks.

Here are the tags I made for everyone to write their names and what they are thankful for, and we'll start with the youngest.These are the little patterns I made for the candy-place holders for the kids to make for the table. I think they're easy enough for them to make in a few minutes, even with the time it takes to eat a few pieces!

RED Card and some Fussin'

This morning has been awful! I woke up at 2 AM and never went back to sleeep. Lying awake, I thought of a fabulous idea for a Birthday present for my Mom. I read the paper, saw the ads, and took off. Rite Aid no longer stocks coffee. Aborted mission. Went to Staples. They didn't open for another half hour. Checked out Stop & Shop....nothing. Went to Building 19 (a junky place that sometimes has good stuff). Nothing. Staples opened, and they didn't have what I went there for. Another aborted mission. I came home, and here I am uploading the card I made EARLY this morning. Thanks for letting me fuss.
My card is a case of Miss Boo, our Featured Stamper. All the details are on my post in my gallery. I'm much too far gone to add it all again. There is a link to my gallery on the left, farther down, if you really want to look. I hope my day gets better. Hope yours it GREAT!
