I'm alive!

It has been a week of high drama, I tell you. I can't remember the last time I went this long without posting. Not to overshare, but to sum it up, here are two points:
1) diabetes sucks
2) don't ignore that little voice that says "go to the doctor"
And I also give thanks for quick-acting antibiotics. Yay!
And how's that for a segue into this card:

Supplies: papers from Basic Grey "Lauderdale;"
image from Mo Manning; watercoloured with distress inks;
Palette Noir ink; Spiced Marmalade distress ink; Hero Arts sentiments

Supplies: papers from Basic Grey "Little Black Dress;"
image from Mo Manning;
watercoloured with distress inks;
Making Memories brads; Hero Arts sentiment

Supplies: papers (including fussy-cut clocks) from Bo Bunny;
image from Mo Manning; watercoloured with distress inks &
Stampin' Up watercolour pencils

Supplies: papers from Kaisercraft;
image from Mo Manning; watercoloured with distress inks;
Memento London Fog ink; hero arts sentiments;
Offray ribbon

Most of the pictures we took during our trip to the wildlife park were of the animals, but there are a couple of shots I wanted to share with you:
Riley, the birthday boy!

Connor the goofy face maker 

Abraham Lincoln, the rhea. It's a feather - and it was hilarious!
If you made it this far, I've got a question - do you use Picasa for photo editing? Can you help me figure out how to insert a GIF watermark? I went through the help process and can't find the *^&^* 'insert' command!  Ugh.

Yippie for you, so glad you're feeling better and another yippie for this fantastic array of cards. Love the coloring and the way you added the sentiment to express 'joy'.

That is one funny looking bird and I love Connor's goofy grin! :)

The patterned paper on that first card rocks and the White Rabbit surrounded by all the clocks cracked me up!

First of all, hope things are better!

Second adorable cards!!!

Third cute pics and looks like loads of fun and I love the goofy face!

Fourth I made it to the bottom :-))) and I think you are inside my brain...I just got sent a watermark to use and I use picasa and I don't have a clue how to add it to my photos. If you find help would you mind sharing. I really don't want to pull my hair out. I kinda like it long. (you can email me) If I get an answer, I will email you.

Sorry for your health scare, Jessi, but I'm glad you are recovering now! I love these cards. They are so cute and happy! My favourite is the first one with all the sentiments. I think I did a little jump, too! LOL It looked like a fun outing with the boys! I don't use Picasa so I can't offer any suggestions.
