A Better Day


Well, we have mostly recovered from the bug that has plagued the Paulson household this week, although Brendan had a relapse this morning. Most of us are still not eating as we normally would and for some of us that is a good thing!

I didn't spend much time reading blogs or email today, but I did get some cards made. I really needed to make several suitable sympathy cards as there have been a couple of sad, but expected, deaths in friends' families. Six cards were completed today leaving me a few in reserve that I can send in a more timely manner next time the need arises.


Then tonight was my monthly stamp club. My friend Janet is such a talented lady and always has fabulous projects for us to do. She had three cards for us, two of which involved using a new tool I'd never used before called an aquabrush. It has a reservoir to hold water that you can squeeze down throught the paintbrush to dilute the ink or paint - whatever you're using. It's a very forgiving tool as you can go over it with a little more ink, or more water, to get the effect you want. Such fun!!

Those are beautiful!! And yes I removed the pic of the fabby for a bit. I had to resize and while in the middle of it kids exploded. LOL Anyways it is back now and thanks for the compliment. :D

Glad to hear you're all on the mend again :) Your latest projects look like fun! I used to do stamping as well, but my tiny stash is still in NZ - you have a great range of crafts, it's awesome!
