About Me

I married my wonderful husband in September 2004 and look forward to spending every single day of the rest of my life with him. I love cats and even call myself "Cat".

Sleeping in the tent & Baby Afghan card..

 My husband is crazy for camping.  We probably won't be able to get out camping again this year since my husband has to cover off for the people taking vacation at work and someone is on vacation through this next long weekend.  So he set the tent up in our back yard last night.  We had bought a new air mattress this last camping trip and the stupid thing leaked like crazy.  We practically ended up sleeping on the hard ground by morning, so Rob took it back last night and bought a big new queen size, double high air mattress.  We tested it out last night.  With the 3" foam pad we have over it, that thing is more comfortable than my bed.  Its quick and easy to pump up with the electric pump that comes with it.  It will work very well if we have guests - our hide-a-bed is horribly uncomfortable.  It was way more than I would have paid for an air mattress (over $100 for this one), but its guaranteed not to leak.  We'll see....

I wanted to quickly post the card I made today to send out with the afghan I made for my cousin's new little baby boy.  The image is by Inkadinkado and is coloured with copics.  I saw the designer papers online by My Mind's Eye (Lush collection).  I didn't have time to go out to see if I could find these papers, so I designed some myself to recreate the one's I saw (the checked & striped - easy enough to do quickly).  The sentiment is a free digi stamp from Create with TLC.  Here's my card:


Well, that's all for today.  Take care and talk to you later...
