I’m Stuck for a Title

Saw this card on a blog but I don’t remember who did it.  The small sea shell stamps do not have a name on them100_2635 and of course I didn’t keep the container they came in.  I have had them for years.  I stamped them  and the turtle in Pepperwood (retired from CTMH) and then I chalked them.  The turtle is from Cornish Heritage Farms and comes the way you see it.  The netting on the card is kind of sparkly but you can’t see it.  I got it a long time ago from Paper Wishes and it came with a whole bunch of gold stuff.  I layered torn Blue Denim, then a piece of craft cork and then white cardstock.  For the turtle’s eye I used a Bitty Sparkle from CTMH.  I tried a Bitty Black brad but that didn’t do anything.  

It is hot and humid here but that is okay.  Our house is air conditioned and when I get tired of it I go outside and enjoy the hummingbirds and flowers.  Not much going on here.  Trying to work out a trip to see some cousins in Traverse City. 

We were the lucky recipients of  The American Community Survey which is a fancy name for the long form from the Census Bureau.  We did the regular form in April.  This one is pretty intrusive and I don’t want to answer the questions.  For example how much money do you get from Social Security?  How much are your utilities?  They keep calling and I keep telling them I am not going to answer their questions.   One time when a worker called she said I didn’t have to answer any questions I felt uncomfortable with so I answered some but they keep calling.  One worker told me that every month the Census Bureau sends out 225,000 of these surveys.

I love all the texture on this card - the netting, cork - and that turtle stamp is awesome.

I wouldn't answer any invasive questions for the Census Bureau either. The fact they keep calling is ridiculous. Ugh!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
