Today is my brother's birday and this is the card I made for him. The cat clock is a replica of the one we had on our bedroom wall when we were kids. Yes, we shared a bedroom. We had trundle beds and I slept on the top bed and Larry slept on the lower bed. The clock was really noisy, but comforting in some ways. It also would drown out the sound of the outside since we didn't have central air. I can also remember that sometimes we would put our beds on the opposite side of the bedroom and put a rope down the center of the room so each of us had our own space. His side was always the messy side!
Yesterday, while Breanna was visiting I very quickly showed her how to make a zentangle. When she left she asked about what kind of pen and she needed to make zentangles. So, as any grandmother would do, I sent her home with the micron pen needed for drawing zentangles. About an half hour later, she texted me and sent me the above photo (fuzzy since it was via text) of her very first zentangle. Chip off the ole block - huh!
Worry can sometimes be an unwanted companion for some of us. When I found this rubber stamp I just knew I had to buy it and make a card with it. Today seemed like the day, so I created a background of zentangle designs and added the quote. For those of you who, like me tend to forget how worry doesn't solve problems, this card is for you.
