I'm still here!!!

Sorry I've been missing for a while...Steven decided to switch my computer over to Windows 2007, and we discovered that alot of my lot stuff is not supported by 2007....so I have been slowly rebuilding everything, not to mention ALL of My Digital Studio downloads had to be redone...100's!!!! Ugh!!!! I'm still working on my photo editing program, so hopefully I will be able to start loading scans and pictures on here shortly. and in there, I had my second surgery...actually today, it went well, but I'm in more pain then last one...so I think the recovery will be a bit slower.....But I'm still kickin'...so if I'm not on here much, that is why!!!

Got to work this morning...and the place was black as the ace of spades....power was out...and they had to call up to Denver to get someone out to unlock the doors for the breaker box....Now how smart is that...so we all sat around for 2 hours, as we all needed computers....not good...but the rest of the day flew by!!!

Getting things together for the Show up in Denver this weekend....I leave for Golden on Thursday, and Nick comes home from school in Golden, for the Summer....on Thursday...so we will be passing each other....He starts his Internship at United Memories on Monday...First paying Engineering job!!!

Fire and Wind

This Mother's Day certainly didn't turn out quite like I had planned. We were getting ready to leave for lunch, Steven was taking me out.....and when he opened the garage door....shouted...I smell smoke. I came running out...and the whole hill, across the road had errupted in flames......We watched in horror as it raced down the hill...then kicked into gear and ran for hoses, set the sprinklers on that side of the house to stay on....and then had to just watch....Took the fire departments forever to get here....They called in Falcon, Black Forest and Ellicott....Fortunatly it didn't jump the creek bed, but if it had...the people across the street would have lost it all, and we were next. They had already moved their horses out. Way too close for me!!! The whole side of the hill is black, lots of trees gone....it will green up nice this summer if we ever get any rain.

This is across the street looking south from our lower pasture.

And how it looks now....

Road up to the top of the hill after lunch...and it came within 10 feet of a house up there. Yikes!!!!

Needless to say, we were late getting into town, and waited a while to get dinner...went to Red Lobster as I was craving shrimp. Yummmm!!!!

Bittersweet day...it would have been my Dad's Birthday...I really had to smile...he sent me a penny.....found it in the driveway when we went for a walk earlier today( if you've been to our property, we have a copper stoned gravel driveway, so to see a penny on it is amazing to start)....he was smiling down on us!!! Long story...but ever since he died...I have been finding pennies....I mean hundreds and hundreds of pennies....we always used to pick them up when I was a kid...and he'd say they were from the Angels..... So thanks Dad...for the Mother's Day Gift!!!

So, lets get some pictures on here!!!

These were some more get well wished I got in the mail this past week!!!

The first project was a mini album that we did this past year at Inkslingers...and the card is from one of our swaps....

This has been a long week, but I have a feeling next week will be even longer....OH MY!!! The Stamp Show is ip in Golden on the 13 and 14....hope to see you there...check out my booth!!!

With that said...this will be a quick post...here are the cards that we did at this past months Stamper 10...

The Pink Elephant card was re-teaching everyone how to use the Stamp Positioner...we forget if we don't use it and it is a great tool. The other one was using the Embossing folders and the brayer...this makes beautiful cards....Can't wait to use the new folder that is in the Summer Mini!!!

These are some things that were in my goodie box....the purse was a fun project...and the Tag was from a swap!!!

Wheeeh...this has been a long week, and it's only Wednesday!!!!

Busy at work. We had 12 dignitaries visit us, and so we put on the show for them, with presentations and meals. Lots and lots of food....They will be here tomorrow also...so I'm sure I will be on very slow motion by then...but it was fun!!! Started with breakfast of Coffee and Juice, Rolls, and Kolatchies, Yogurt and Fruit Salad...Yum. Then a mid morning protein snack of Nuts and Cheese. Lunch was from Carino's....so yummy, Lasagne, Bowtie Pasta, Meatballs, Lemon Chicken, with Pasta and Green Beans, Grilled Chicken, Garlic Bread, Salad, Tea and Lemonade. Needless to say there were lots of dishes. Then we had a mid afternoon dessert...Vanilla Coconut Cake, Carrot Cake, a Berry Cake, with Lemon Icing, and Fruit, and an Ice Cream Bar. Yum!!!! All I could manage when I got home was a salad!!!!

Here's some Goodies for you. The first batch is from our Get together at Donna's on Saturday...very relaxing afternoon....Thanks so much Donna!!!

Our theme was Flowers...great cards Donna!!!
Next from my box of goodies...I think these were from a class I did last year sometime when I was doing the Brayer and Sponging series. If you you are interested in these series...let me know and I will start them up again.
