Just sharing...a bit about me.

Not feeling particularly creative today, but the good news is---I did get my new order of stamps from Simon Says Stamps last week-Hooray! 
I am sharing a card I made with Penny Black stamps. I made this a while ago, but never got around to post it. As you can tell that I love the image of Polly and twines so much ......
Thank you from the bottom of my heart
The Polly image is perfect for a fall day like today. I trimmed the twines and make it like a scarf....with the wind blowing. 

 Anyhow I Saw these fun questions from Ivy's blog (see here ) and I thought it would be fun to share a bit about me. Feel free to copy and paste and share it in your blog!
1. Name your favorite color?
It used to red, it's now orange
2. Name your favorite song?
My Heart Will Go On (I am a Celine Dion fan)!
3. Name your favorite dessert?
There are SO many, but I think Macaron is my current fav!
4. What ticks you off at the moment?
I am actually quite content :).... well, ok.. if I don't get time to play in the craft room, I get cranky! 
5. Your favorite pet?
 I don't have pets at the moment, but my son's love of finches got me into bird-loving
6. Black or white? 
7. Your biggest fear?
 Swimming in the ocean ( I can't swim)
 8. Best feature?
I am easy-going and helpful
9. Everyday attitude?
Enjoy simple things and be thankful
10. What is perfection?
Finding the silver lining in all things and situations
11. Guilty pleasure?
A bag of good old potato chips in front of TV
12. When you're upset you...?
Give it a little cry and then start stamping
~~Courtesy of my sister-in-law Florence's masterpiece--the Macaroon. She made these delectable treats for her son's wedding favors!YUM!  
 Hope you have a great day!

Luv your card, and perfect match with the twine & the girl!:) Heard the earthquake in Taiwan. Hope your family is ok.. Simply i can't stand earthquakes everywhere these days...I've been quiet cuz i'd been extremely busy, deciding about $2,000. trip in one day, and 10 days later, i'm here, back in Guam. And i saw your answer; Swimming in the ocean. Really??!! I luv it! lol Since i got sick after i got here (from stress), and the weather hasn't been beach going one, i have been to the beach, only to soak my feet in the water, but haven't really gone swimming yet. Nice to have 80F's temp. though, just a nick of time to ESCAPE from the SNOW! lol :-)
