I had such a nice blog post almost ready to go and I lost it, poof, it's gone! Bummer... I guess I'll start over~

Isn't this a cute cowboy? He's from Alota Rubber Stamps, a new discovery of mine. They have Alota cute rubber stamps too! I used Stampin' Up! stamps too, the Paisley Background, the long retired Just Jeans Background and the Starstruck set. I've been having fun coloring with the Copic markers and have been making a point to read all I can about them and keep practicing.

I've been tagged by my new friend Linda over at My Little Yellow House. I need to tell seven things about myself and tag seven other bloggers.

So here goes:

I bet you didn't know that I have 3 children and that my first son was born when I was 29, my daughter was born when I was 40 and my youngest son was born when I was 41.

I bet you didn't know I'm a band member even though I can't play an instrament or sing. I have the priviledge of running the computer and sound equipment at our church on Friday nights and Sunday mornings.

I bet you didn't know that if you can make something... I want to. I also enjoy sewing, cross stitching, scrapbooking, building/remodeling projects around the house and yard, etc.

I bet you might have known that I love the Lord and I'm so thankful for the awesome friends He's put in my life.

I bet you didn't know that I live in a small town in Arizona on the Colorado River. I've lived in Parker for 26 years, we have a popluation of about 3500 people and it gets really hot here in the summer... and it's still summer. The temperature was over 100 degrees today.

I bet you didn't know that I have a hard time making "fall" cards.

I bet you didn't know I need to be organized, it's killing me to be living out of boxes waiting for my new kitchen/craft room cabinets to be ready.

I hope you're still awake...

On to the bloggers!

Your colouring is going so well, best way to learn is too practice. Also nice to hear about 'you'.
