Apologies

Yesterday I  posted about wishing people would comment when they visit my blog.  Then, today, I set out to do my daily blog reading (yes, I really DO do it every day) and it became glaringly apparent that I was visiting and not commenting!

 Talk about awkward!

So, I set out to make it right and I decided that if I visit a blog, I will make a comment, even if it is only "hi".

I need to be more thoughtful.

My bad.

I am back to making cards and delivered my granddaughter's birthday card and I dropped off their Halloween cards to be given to them by their mother so I didn't have to worry about remembering to mail them.  I still need to deliver Bean's. 

I went shopping for some card making supplies today and am very put out with the selection as it is very meager.  Hobby Lobby is still the best place for stamps and dies and ink.  However, I did stop into Wal-Mart and bought two packages of card stock.  One was Neenah that is recommended and the other was Georgia Pacific which is also recommended.  The GP is considerably heavier so I will have to experiment.  I think the Neenah will be used to  print out digi-stamps for coloring.

I then went to Michaels with my 50% off coupon and bought a 24 set of Polychromos colored pencils.  I love the look of the copic markers but they are too rich for my blood especially since I don't know how well I would do with them.  And, I like pencils.  So, I hope to do some coloring later on this evening.

I purchased a Tim Holtz ruler as well and it is due to be delivered today -- yes, on Sunday -- and I hope it helps me cut things a little straighter.  I have a double astigmatism and sometimes it shows!  It is getting late in the day  and it hasn't arrived yet so not sure if I will see it or not.  Hopefully I do.

So, in the future if you see a shy little "hi" in your comment section it is just me stopping by for a read.  And, hopefully I will be able to share some more cards here soon.
