When I went to bed last night this card did not have the sequins added. I just kept thinking about it while I was falling asleep and realized that it was what was needed. I am glad that my mind will sometimes keep working on a card like that. Sometimes it doesn’t’ really come up with an answer, but occasionally it does. The true question is whether I will actually remember that answer the next morning. Much like all of the brilliant plans thought out in the shower that disappear as soon as I turn the water off.
Bats are really cool. A friend of mine nursed one back to health that flew into her apartment and was injured. When my nephew was young he always wanted to camp out at the bat exhibit at the zoo. One of the cool things is that here in Oregon are bats only eat insects and they eat a lot of them! Something like 1,000 an hour. They also are good at pollinating. There young are called pups which is also very sweet.
Our house has been taken over by Fortnite. It started out innocent enough with the nephew doing the dances, and then he started watching videos of people playing and then it all snowballed from there. Now the husband and I also have accounts and spend a bit of time playing each day. I can’t believe that I have fallen under the spell of a shooter game. Agh!
For some reason, I thought the flowers on this stamp were roses until I stamped it. I am not sure if it was a trick of my eyes or my mind or just a case of being a bit extra distracted right now. I like poppies a lot and was happy to realize that is what they were, it just took me a bit by surprise as I was coloring them in. In high school, I had a friend whose mom had a gorgeous garden of irises and poppies and let me take a bouquet home one day, I always think of her when I see poppies.
While I was making this card I kept thinking about my female friends. So many of them this card would fit for. It made me really happy that I know such amazing women. I truly do know many amazing women who have conquered small and large obstacles in their lives simply by believing in themselves. The thing is that I believe in them, but that really doesn’t matter, especially since I can only do so much.
