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.

I am loving them! I just want more colors now, and so I am looking at what my next step is…

Sometimes I know a general idea of what I want to do for a challenge, and most of the cards I make are inspired by challenges (well it is a whole complex thing but we will just go with that for now), but I don’t know how I am going to pull it off until I find a sketch that works. That was the case with this card. Occasionally I can just put a card together without a sketch, but most of the time I do better with at least the idea of one to work with. read more
I am hopeless. It’s ok. I am always on the lookout for awesome digi sites and I found one! Well, I went to get a Thanksgiving digi today…does the image on this card look like a turkey? That’s because Gina has no control when she sees a sprite in a pumpkin costume with a kitty, and totally forgot what she was supposed to be doing because of the cuteness. read more
