Busy, but with down-time

We had a great week!  Lots of afternoon pool time, lots of puppy play time, some computer work and a bit of studio card time!

But first … Chloe’s posse turned 7 wks old.  They are so fun to play with and too stinking cute!

If you want to see more of our bulldogs, DH has a facebook page dedicated to the ‘beasts’: https://www.facebook.com/Clayton-Hill-English-Bulldogs-1870477886306452/

We all ate well, starting with a big vat of Momma’s Trailer Park Mac-N-Cheese with turkey meatballs.  (Kind of a gourmet version of Spaghettios with Meatballs – using macaroni noodles, cream, muenster & provolone cheeses, herbs, dry mustard, shredded spinach, ground turkey and some homemade BBQ sauce … the boys can’t get enough!)  And tonite, DH made pan seared Alaskan Pollock with veggies.  It’s only taken 33 years, but the man is becoming a great cook!  Winking smile


And, my cards:  I turned one of the acrylic paint dragging backgrounds into a painted rose (Concord & 9th set), along with a few other colors:

Then, I made a new paper flower to add to my growing ‘garden’.


And finally, I followed a youtube video, (thank you Ellen!) to mask some Stamping Bella Gnomes, create the distress oxide background and copic color the fun gang.  I like it!!!

Add one more pool day before heading back to a weekend of ER nursing fun … Just doesn’t get much better for this girl! [HUGS]
