Gruffies: Gotta love these Bears


I love bears, always have from a very young age. I think I got that from my Grandma Markisich, she loved bears as well. We would go to Yellowstone Park and Jackson, Wyoming every summer when I was younger. Those were some great memories. Of course, back then there were no rules when it came to feeding the bears, Grandma always made sure she had "animal crackers" to give to the bears. Now, I would never feed the bears, and in fact am quite fanatical when we go camping about not doing anything that would attract a bear. My DH thinks I am crazy, but you know what they say, "A fed bear, is a dead bear".
There are already too many being killed by stupidity (ok, off the soapbox).
I bought this Gruffie stamp the other day, and couldn't wait to use it. I was so excited when Stampabilities came out with this line, and seeing as they are so similar to House Mouse and all their antics, how could you not love them? It was on a day where I felt my Mojo coming back, finally, and wouldn't you know it when it does, school starts again on Monday. Sniff! I am going into my last quarter for my nursing degree, but am still looking towards the future of getting my Masters in nursing. That will take me another 3 years. I know it might be a tough road, but I know I can accomplish it and more. And then on my quiet days when I need to take a break, maybe I will crack out another Gruffies stamp and finally update my blog again. Thanks for stopping by, and please leave a comment or two. Just to say"Hello!".

Another card to share

This card was made for some friends as part of The Stamp Shack 2010 Flood. That is a swap that I joined where each month a couple ladies are choosen to recieve cards from all the other ladies in the group. As you can probably see with my cards, I like to keep simple clean lines. I have looked back over that mnay years I have made cards, and my style has changed, who's hasn't? And now I am pretty happy with my style, and thats good. I find that I don't get caught up in all the latest products, I tend to just stick to what I know best and that seems to work for me. It seems lately I have been using my SU wheels more and more, just like with this card.

On a side note, I passed my test last week, and for the first time I was really worried about it. It's amazing how much I forgot seeing that I don't do EMS work on a daily basis anymore. I truly miss it every second of everyday. But just like with my cards I make a choice to keep my life simple. I am headed into finals week, and have three exams this week, plus a final in another class so I might be a little busy. Hope everyone is enjoying life right now, and may you have a blessed day.
