Have A Question On How I Did Something? PLEASE READ!

I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries. If you are serious about me answering the questions you ask and do not have a Blogger account with an email address linked to it, please leave your email address or email me with your question at knmic1012@aol.com and I will get back with you. If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

How Are Things In Your Neck Of The Woods?

Good Morning Everyone! I hope you are having a great week. Several weeks ago Sarah from Australia contacted me to see if I would make her the giraffe card I made for my son's birthday. When I told my son I'd have to have the card back that someone wanted it, he told me he didn't think so...lol! I had forgotten how much fun the tear animals were to make! While I'm on the subject of tear bear animals, Helen from Great Britain signed my guestbook last month asking for instructions, but she didn't leave an email address. I tried to respond to her via the guestbook, whether she got my reply, I'll never know because I haven't heard from her. I cannot stress enough, I am more than happy to share what knowledge I have but I must have a way to reach you. So please, if you want information, it is so important to leave an email address so that I can get back with you! Here is a card that I made for my father in law---
Here is the recipe---
Card Size: 5x5
Image: Paper Piecing-Mulberry Tear Animals
Nestibilities: Petite Oval
Punch: Stampin' Up Corner/Edge Scallop Trim, Marvy Flora (for eyes outlined with gel pen) Font: Computer Generated-2Peas Goofball
Accessories: Ribbon, Mulberry Rose, Buttons, Craft Yarn, Foam Pop Dots
Base Cardstock-Bazzill
Patterned Paper: DCWV Nana's Nursery-Baby Boy
Other Paper: Thick Mulberry Paper (giraffe)

That's it for today. I'm not sure when I'll be back, my daughter in law thought she was leaking amniotic fluid along with contractions so she went to the hospital. It turned out to be a false alarm. She was given something to slow the contractions but told that she would have the babies within the week, so we'll have to be ready to go at a moments notice. I will close by saying, Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy your visit...have a great day, and if I'm not back by Friday, have a great weekend!
