Mason Jar Madness

After showing off two mason jar cards yesterday I thought I should share my contribution to the madness. Here's my mason jar card. I told the friend that I sent it to that I must like her a whole bunch because I used Staz On ink. That's some serious stuff right there.

Monday Mail on Tuesday

So yesterday just didn't work for me. Luckily today is another day and the skies are blue and the sun is shining.... and. Oh. Wait. I was just told from an Informed Source who came in from outside that the sun is not shining and the skies are gray. Such is life when it is monsoon season.

Anyway, onto the mail. This past week the postman started out by bringing me this fabulous sparkly mermaid card as part of a weekly card exchange. Mermaids are so hot right now.
Then I got this delicate die cut card. It's so pretty. It has a hint of sparkly and shine to it that you can't tell from the photo.
And these two cards came in the late evening hours on Sunday as the week wound down. The mailman left them with the neighbor. You might notice a mason jar theme. I also got the cool mason jar shaker stickers.


The Fine Print: I got nothing. It's Tuesday. It's happening. I'm not sure what "it" is, but it's happening.

This post is only a test. This is just a test of the PJ Posting System. If this had been a real post you would have had some really cool and insightful words to read here.

You Can Do Anything

Recently there was a discussion crawling through my Facebook feed about which of these 4 superpowers would you pick? I don't know remember what they all were but one of them was invisibility.

As someone who drives many miles across town every work day with an apparent cloak of invisibility on, I can say with authority it ain't something you want. I'm constantly dodging and weaving other drivers who I guess cannot see me.  Remember, invisible doesn't mean invincible!
It's a real hassle. As far as superpowers go I think I'd like the one where I could eat anything I wanted and magically be physically fit (instead of physically pfft).

The Fine Print: You can do anything, except for what you can't. Parts 'n stuff from an old Simon Says Stamp kit.

Tag, You're It

My stamp club does a tag swap each month when we meet. I don't usually play along mostly because it slips my mind and also I'm not really a tag kind of person.

I played this month though because the theme was "Life's a Journey" and a tag by any other name is a bookmark. That just worked too well together for me to pass up.
Not the best photo because I took it in the middle of a thunderstorm in the dark under my desk lamp which gives off some sort of unearthly light, but you get the idea.

Super Duper Girl

Look! It's a bird! It's a plane! No! It's Super Duper Girl!
I made this card for an open-to-your-interpretation card exchange called "Crash, Boom, Bang." I think since this exchange is happening in July they were thinking fireworks, but Independence Day is over and done with so I opted for what popped into my brain--the sounds a comic book hero make when fighting the bad guys.

You know: Boom. Crash. Bang. Biff.  The "biff" is always a favorite one of mine.

Anywho, that's all I got for you today.

A Taste of Ice Cream

Sometimes all you need to make everything in life feel fine is a scoop of ice cream. Sometimes you need more than one scoop.

Here's hoping that you aren't having a 5-scoop day.
