What the heck does that mean? It means I am going to piggyback on someone else’s tutorial. For one reason, which is a silly reason, I am growing out my fingernails. I have been getting my nails done for years and I am not getting them done anymore, so anyone that has had artificial nails knows how horrible your nails look while this is happening, so I am ashamed to let you see them, so I may just do this a couple times, until I don’t look like I have a disease. The second reason is I am also a calendar cuttin’ fiend, so that is taking a lot of my time. So I am sure you won’t mind seeing the tute somewhere else and then seeing what I did with it.
Now that I am in the world of Copics, (I still really need to learn how to use them, I am still such an aqua painter, watercolor paper, ink pad kinda girl) I thought this was a cool technique by Hanna Stamps’ very own Kristi Ferro. She shows how you can color the dew drops to be any color you want.
It is under What is the Latest Craze – I couldn’t figure out how to make it stay on the right entry, so I hope you can find it.
Here is the card I did with the colored dew drops, these started out a yellow color and now they are red…cool eh?
I did this card for the Hanna Stamps Friday Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers, HSDT member Cindy picked Snowflakes.

So while I was watching tv lately, I have seen a couple IKEA commercials with an old black lady talking to the person opening the cupboards and stuff like that, but she is a ghost or something cause she is not really there, who is she? Cause this commercial is going right over my head, and I don’t think this is what the advertisers want.
I also finished the Edgar Sawtelle book, has anyone else read it? What was your opinion? I read at night in bed, and I finished and my stomach and head hurt so bad, cause I wanted to cry OUT LOUD, not keep it in, if I was alone and Jeff was not sleeping and having to get up for work in 2 hours I would have been sobbing out loud. It was so sad, and I was mad at the ending, and disturbed and so many mixed emotions. So I just wondered what anyone else that read it thought. I am now reading some fun vampire books by MaryJane Davidson that (oh my gosh I can’t remember who told me to read them….please email me or comment so I can thank you) it is nice to read something fun…and light!!! OMG! I have read 50 pound books for the last 6 that I have read and my chest is thanking me!! Ha!
So I am getting more and more used to blog stuff, the little things you can do with it, and I have added some photo albums off to the side, so if you are looking for Stampin’ Up!, Hanna or Molly or whatever you can go over there to see the card, now please understand I have tons on my blog that are not there, and I don’t know if I will ever get them all over there, but from now on I am going to add them as I go. I hope you like this little addition.
I am waiting for the PO to deliver my priority boxes so I can get the calendar kits in the mail. My PO won’t give me the boxes (I wanted too many, so I had to order them on-line) they should be here any day.
Here are your packets waiting to be sent to their new homes!
Have a super Friday, and thanks for stopping in!
oh boy, oh boy….one of those calendars is coming to live at my house! They look so darn cute….I just wanna get into those baggies! 🙂
Thanks for all the work!

LOL Di. My hubby finally told me "enough" when I was into the Danielle Steele books. He would wake up at 3:00 AM to me sobbing in bed next to him. He would ask what was wrong & then roll his eyes when I'd start telling him about how one of the characters died or something!
Di, you are spot on about Edgar Sawtelle. I loved it until the end and then I hated it! I felt a bit suckered….
i'm with the comment that read *ohboyohboyohboy!* cause one of those adorable little calendar class packets is coming to live in MY house. again MANY thanks for including me in your calendar class by mail. i've never done one of these mail order classes before. can't wait to see what it is like! and of course, the calendar project looks ADORABLE (oops, did i say that already?)
Is there a tutorial for the calendars? Do you have any extras for sale?

I came across your blog by googling "old black lady" + ikea commercials because I can't figure out who/what she is, either. It's bugging the crap out of me!

Edgar Sawtelle…I thought the beginning was so slow, loved it once I got into it, and absolutely hated the ending. What a sad, sad tale.
