TROUBLE, Have I ever mentioned that TROUBLE is my "real" name? Probably didn't have to. I think, perhaps it is stamped on my forehead.  Yesterday, I had a little "run-in" with Base Security. I know, I know surprise, surprise!!! I was on base watching my husband do free-fall (skydiving) from airplanes and I took a photo (GASP). Oh it only took SIX officers to confiscate my camera, look through THREE photos to determine that I needed to delete ONE......... Alright, I get it, Operational Security Etc.(OPSEC)  Oh that was not enough, NOW I had to fill out an incident report declaring that I had been WARNED!!!!!! The paper has some seriously weird things to fill in. Of course I put down that my hair was purple, I weigh 491lb, I am black, speak Italian, Alias TROUBLE, Hands (I kid you not, they asked about my darn hands) Yea, got two, Deameanor- Unbelievably Cooperative, Hair= nappy, Height=short, yada yada....... You gettin the idea - Yes I was a bit of a smart ARSe..... Guess they didn't like my answers so they hunted me down. Yeah, they hunted me down and made me change some of them. I refused on the hair. It is Purple, says so on the bottle and I do speak fluent Italian. Ok so I'm not really black, I put ANGLO SAXON. LOL  I felt so VIOLATED..................  

I was nominated to serve as the Chair for our Command's Welcome Committee.  Obviously a good choice. This afternoon, I was in the midst of welcoming an incoming family, at the Catania airport, and received A TICKET!!!!!!!!!! 36 Euros.......................... I have not a clue what I did wrong, I was in a parking spot. There was no time limit posted. Surely I have mentioned my magnetism towards POLICE and this magnetic force field also causes cars to break. GRRRRRRRRR, I swear I am a good person, a little mouthy but overall, I am!!!!!!!!!!

On to the card!!!!!  I actually created this for a challenge over on Taylored expressions but never actually got it posted, so I suppose I will share it with.  The sketch was so simple that it was difficult.  I also discovered that I don't think I like making Halloween cards. Not sure why, maybe it is the colors. Ultimately, I suppose it is ok but all of the squares were  "challenging".  I didn't have a spider web stamp so they are done free hand. The spider stamps are from the original PaperTrey Ink Spooky Treats. Although they are not new, they are new to me.  Isn't the tulle cute? It looks kinda spider webbish.....   The scalloped squares were created using the Marvy Uchida punch BUT my first Nestabilities came in yesterday. Guess what I will be playing with tomorrow????
Anyhow, check back with me tomorrow, I hope to have all of the photos downloaded for one of the gift set orders that I just completed.................
