Good morning you all! See be another grey day here. I managed to prise myself out of bed and stagger to the coffee maker, once I get the first wafts of the aroma I know I'm alive. Isn't there a saying like that? When you wake up in the morning, and nothing hurts, you're in heaven??
Yesterday I spent the day painting pink, but I can't show it yet as it's for the week of colour next Monday. But I did manage two challenges yesterday. The first is for *Less is More* , where the ladies want to see a monogram. As I don't have any monograms to stamp, I drew this one:
I hope the message comes over CAS - CAT!
And at Gingersnaps they are still busy shopping at the Mall all month so GC 107 is about bags and tags. The bags I have here are mostly from the discounter for groceries, and I am NOT going to show my shopping tags so you see I have bought the things which have already been reduced 7 times, but I found a small paper bag from the chemist's to alter. At my age I am more there than at the mall! I painted it with metallic paints, bubbled it, and then stamped the corners using my fave fourish stamp. I added som floral rub ons, butterflies and flowers - the malls are all highly decorated these days! and a TH dress form dressed in half a lace doiley. That was about it!
And just for my good measure, another zendoodle portrait I made a while back:
Well, after that, I think we could all do with another one of Narda's funnies, so here it is:
A Florida senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out of the dealership. Taking off down the road, he floored it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left.
"Amazing!" he thought as he flew down I-75, pushing the pedal to the metal even more. Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw the highway patrol behind him, blue lights flashing and siren blaring. "I can get away from him. No problem!" thought the elderly gent as he floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then 120 mph.
Suddenly, he thought, "What on earth am I doing? I'm too old for this nonsense and pulled over to the side of the road and waited for the trooper to catch up.
Pulling in behind him, the trooper walked up to the driver's side of
the Corvette, looked at his watch and said, "Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a good reason why you were speeding that I've never heard before, I'll let you go."
The man, looking very seriously at the trooper, said, "Years ago, my wife ran off with a Florida State Trooper. I thought you were bringing her back."
"Have a good day, sir," said the Trooper and left.
Wish you all a happy day too, free from aches and pains. Take care of yourselves, and thanks for visiting!
