Sunday Night Chit-Chat

I am still at the point where I look at the blog screen and wonder, "what do I write"?  I have decided to start blogging (again) mostly to share my cards, some family stuff, some recipes and whatever else takes my fancy.  I have decided to play along with Carla tonight, and her Sunday night chit-chat :)  To start off, a quote:

  • Reading: I just started a book called "Rot & Ruin" by Jonathan Maberry.  
  • Listening to: Football -  San Francisco against Seattle.  From the looks of hubby, the team he is rooting for is not doing well.
  • Watching: Nothing yet, I think we may have some shows recorded.  I like the cooking competition shows like Chopped and Top Chef.
  • Cooking/Baking:Today Mark did all the cooking!  He got a stew finished and a couple of soups for Evan.  Plus he cooked up some chicken drumsticks which we can finish off tomorrow.
  • Happy you accomplished this week:  Got some cleaning done around the house and finally pulled out my craft stuff, finished 3 cards!
  • Looking forward to next week:  As of right now, Friday.  I always look forward to Fridays, LOL....
  • Thankful for today: My husband, he is such a good man and takes very good care of his family.
  • Bonus Question: What colours of clothing do you tend to gravitate towards?  I love earth tones, like olive green and chocolate browns but I really like to accent with bright colours.  Teals, reds and so forth.  

 I also created a funky birthday card based on the challenge (stars!) from the Stampotique Designer Challenge blog.  The challenge was to use stars so I made this masculine card using Rocky (Daniel Torrent) and some MME paper.



  1. Glad you're back to blogging! Yay! I'll add you to my blogroll again! Love your card... I wish I wanted to scrapbook. lol!! Have so much *stuff*! Does Mark wanna come cook for me one day? Eds cooking is "dumping a can into a bowl and pressing 2:00 on the microwave". lol! ;) Have a great week!

  2. Lovely card Heidi, it has a lovely calm feeling about it.
