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 them 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.
