How the heck are ya? Hotter 'n Hell I bet! LOL However, in my humble opinion, "dewy" looks wonderful on you! Can you believe it is August!?! Dear Lord where is the time going?
OK I've got something a little STRANGE to tell you at THE END OF THE POST, so be sure you read it because I want to know what you think. . . now, on with the post!
I told my good blogging friend Myrna that I was heading up to my "man cave" with a glass and a bottle of my favorite wine to "create". Well, that's exactly what I did. . .and I can't believe I drank the whole bottle!!! My cards may be a little off, but I sure was happy with them at the time! LOL Here is what I created "UNDER THE INFLUENCE":
I don't usually play along with sketch challenges, but I like this sketch a lot! It was a Splitcoast Stamper's challenge (SC343) so I played along. I wanted to do a monochrome look on this because let's face it, coffee and coffee beans are brown. All images and the sentiment on this are by The Paper Studio. If you look really close, I used a silver glitter pen on the steam coming from the coffee cup.
I wanted to do another monochrome card (think it was the wine?) and I also wanted a simple note card. I really love this image by Stampers Anonymous. I stamped it in distress ink (peeled paint) and then embossed it with clear ep. Stamped the french writing on the mat panel (Inkadinkado) and then added a simple strip of sparkly ribbon. You can see evidence of the wine taking effect because the image part is matted a little crooked on the green mat. . . LOL I made all of these in one night! And I'm presenting them in order. . .
This is a variation of the sketch challenge for the first one. Instead of using 4 strips in the background, I used only 3 (probably was getting confused by this point! LOL) I have no idea who this stamp set is by. It is one of the very first ones I bought (3 years ago) and before I realized that people would want to know the stamp maker. . .Anyhooo I was looking for a sentiment and came across this one and started giggling. . .It's cute, but not that funny now, so I was obviously on the last of the wine by this point. I stamped the spider webs and embossed them in white for the background piece.
So, there you have it. Nothing too exciting except that they were made under the influence. Now on to the strange thing.
Take a look at this photo:
I happened to look up while I was walking the boys and saw this beautiful hawk flying above. So I snapped this photo. Nothing really special right? Take a closer look (if you click on it you will get a bigger image). Look just to the right and above the hawk. . .see that little "spot". OK here is your challenge. For those of you with a photo editing program or something that can magnify the image, copy this photo and take a look at it magnified. . . . . .
I honestly think I have inadvertently captured a UFO. I'm not joking. I have the photo editing software called "Picasa" (fabulous and FREE from Google). I noticed the "spot" and zoomed in thinking I had caught a jet. But it looks nothing like a jet. Under 800 magnification, you can clearly see a domed object with sun glittering off of the top of the dome and the respective shadow of its belly. I have shown it to several people and their mouths drop open when they see it. It is fuzzy to say the least, but there is no mistaking its shape or the fact that there is nothing (chemtrail) coming from the back. As I said, I didn't even see it when I took the photo, it was only later that I discovered that it was in the photo. WHAT DO YOU THINK? It has me a little spooked. I've always thought that we couldn't possibly be "alone" in this huge universe, but I've never had a personal experience until this photo. Just thought I would share. . .And NO, I was not drinking when I was looking at the photo! LOL
PIC OF THE WEEK:
OK, that wraps up another Wednesday Evening Post. Hope you were entertained by my intoxicated creations and story. Trust me, I normally don't drink like that, but I was having such a great time (obviously) listening to the radio (all 80's weekend) just jammin' and making cards.
Thanks for stopping by! Loved everything you all did this past week! I think I hit all of your blogs. If I missed anyone, I'm sorry. BY THE WAY. . .I've been meaning to tell you all HOW I keep track and visit all of you. . .from my last post, I click on the comments and start at the top and visit everyone who left a comment that week. I just click on the name and it takes me to your profile page and I click on your blog title there and then I visit. That's how I've always done it. I don't use the Google reader. I feel it is a little more confusing to keep track of where I've been. Especially if I am interrupted and have to come back to it later. So, that's how I visit you. When you leave a comment, that is my ticket to your blog. . .Anyone have a better way?
OK, Curt, Stop already. . . .I see a couple of you nodding off. . . LOL Thanks for coming! I'll see you on your blogs in the coming week!
