Alone by Lisa Gardner



Alone

(Kindle Edition)

It was bad enough that Catherine Gagnon survived a horrible childhood abduction where for a month she lived in a cave and was the plaything for her sicko abductor. But now, 25 years later, she faces tragedy again as she fights to keep her son, Nathan. One chilly November night, a police sniper kills her husband, Jimmy, in response to her 911 call claiming he was about to hurt Nathan. Jimmy's death means that his parents, an influential judge and his blue-blooded wife, are more determined than ever to take Nathan from Catherine, whom they see as unfit to mother their only grandchild. True, the birth of Nathan mentally paralyzed Catherine, who could not get past the memories of her abduction and her emotionally absent parents. But is she really the monster the Gagnons and their PI make her out to be? Massachusetts state police special-ops officer Bobby Dodge, the sniper who took out Jimmy, doesn't think so, and unwittingly falls under the spell of the manipulative widow. A twisted, effective psychological thriller.

Alone is a tightly written suspense novel containing interesting characters that I couldn't find myself liking, despite that fact I was drawn into the story.   Intertwined into the unfolding drama is the presence of the serial rapist, manipulation by the late Jimmy's parents, Catherine's calculating nature and Bobby Dodge's determination to resolve the mysteries behind all the deaths around.  It was a real page tuner and kept my interest to the end.

Tweet Kisses

Tweet Kisses

The House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge, Challenge #89, was to use your most favorite House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffies stamp. It took me awhile to decide, I finally narrowed it down between Tweet Kisses or Snuggle Bunny. Tweet Kisses is what I decided to use because the little mouse giving the birdie a kiss on the head just seems so caring, compassionate and kind... at least that's what I see.

The card is pretty basic with not a lot of extra's added. I colored the image using Prismacolor Pencils blended with Gamsol and I added some gemstones to the background flower centers and that's pretty much it.

Clean & Simple 128

I finally finished my card for this week's Clean & Simple Stamping sketch challenge, Sketch 128. I must have stamped this flower at least six times and with each mess up a new die cut. I can't believe how long it took to make, it wasn't very simple for me!

I couldn't decide on what color flower to use, once I decide on yellow (buttercup & honey) it took me just as long to add embellishments... and I'm still not too sure about the button, maybe a cluster of smaller buttons would have been more appealing, embellishment time always is difficult for me.

WOYWW

I had such a busy day and wasn't sure if I would get my WOYWW posted today. I forgot that I had a dermatology appointment to get my face burned... okay well not really burned, I had to my reoccurring laser treatment for my Rosacea. I was rushing to get to the appointment on time that my stamping plans were pushed back... way back.

Finished my appointment as red as can be, came home and put together homemade dough for Calzones that I made for dinner... yummy. Finally this evening after moving computers I was able to get back to some of my stamping projects.

Here is what my desk looks like this evening. I'm currently working on this week's Clean & Simple sketch challenge. I'm using some Close to My Heart floral stamps, which I have plenty of... I love flowery images but I'm not good at creating cards using them.

WOYWW 23 Feb 2011

Just a close up of what I'm stamping. I broke my Sweet Leaf stamp pad, the hinge snapped off... I tried taping it which isn't working very well. I guess I'll just have to order a new one, which is great because I like the style of the newer pads.

WOYWW 23 Feb 2011

On the other side of my room I have a huge cord mess. Last August I gave my daughter my bigger HP laptop and purchased a smaller red Dell which I absolutely loved. Since I moved my stamp area upstairs I hated having a desktop and laptop taking up space. I refused to use the Dell desktop because it was so slooow it drove me nuts! I gave my son the red laptop and I purchased a new Dell desktop for me. My darling husband has been very busy this past week moving files from desktops and laptops. Now I'm stuck with a huge tangled cord mess... at least until tomorrow.

Inky Antics Blog Hop!

Welcome to the first ever Inky Antics blog hop!

It starts today and ends on Sunday, February 27th at midnight Central time. We invite you to stop and comment on each Design Team members’ blog, as there will be prizes given away. Three lucky winners (who visit and post at every stop in the hop) will be drawn at random to receive a new release Easter bunny clear stamp set.

If you came here from the talented Debbie Fisher's blog, The Paper Garden, you are in the right spot. If not, you will need to start at Inky Antics blog and work your way through the group!

Here is my card... I had the little bunny holding everything from flower shaped suckers, a packet of carrot seeds and various miniature foam Easter decorations. I finally settled on the lilies, which can be found in the bridal area at Hobby Lobby. The image, Givin' a Squeeze , was colored using Prismacolor Pencils blended with Gamsol. All the cardstock and designer paper is from Close to My Heart's paper pack Mayberry. I also discovered that the zigzag stitch is very forgiving of those of us who can't sew a straight line.

Your next stop will be to visit the ever so talented Crystal Irwin's blog, Crystal's Crafty Creations.

WOYWW


Today it’s all about organizing and finally getting my Close to My Heart order out of its bag and put away. As you can see I’m sorting my paper flowers, I was using the votive to store most of them but the votive became overfilled and I had to resort to dumping them all just to finds a specific color or flower shape. I had these little bead containers not being used and most of the smaller flowers fit perfect; I just don’t like having them in multiple containers. The larger flowers will go in another container… hopefully I could find one that would fit all the sizes while out and about this afternoon.

Onto my other work area, my CTMH order has been moved around the room for the last couple days, which is so not like me. As soon as I get an order I always take it out, make labels if need, and then put it away. Now I have some new goodies to play with.

Her Last Letter by Nancy C. Johnson


Her Last Letter
by Nancy C. Johnson

(Kindle Edition)


In the Colorado mountain town of Glenwood Springs, not far from Aspen, artist/photographer Gwyn Sanders discovers a cryptic letter her sister Kelly left behind. The victim of a deadly hit and run, Kelly reveals she was sexually involved with her sister's boyfriend and is scared for her life. Both Gwyn and her remaining sister Linda have since married their boyfriends, so either could be guilty of murder. The sisters received a large inheritance before meeting these men, and know little of either man's background. Worse, both Gwyn and Linda love their husbands deeply, but steps must be taken to find the truth. And the truth is complicated, is it one of the two men, or another previous lover? Or none of them? Danger abounds and everyone is a suspect as Gwyn tries with the help of a gifted private detective to track a killer....

The story starts out drawing you in when Gwyn finds Kelly's letter in which Kelly reveals she was sexually involved with her sister's boyfriend. Then as Gwyn is trying to figure if it was her now husband, her sister's husband or an old boyfriend the story slows. The author spent an excessive amount of time describing the art exhibit, the ski trip and film developing process ... which didn't add much to the story. Once the killer was revealed it, it was pretty much over.

Clean & Simple

This is my first time participating in a Clean & Simple Stamping challenge and I this is one that I’m going to try to take part in weekly. I think clean and simple is pretty much my comfort zone when making cards.

I need to have things symmetrical and that’s not just with stamping, I think that may be part of my OCD… maybe I need to up my meds! LOL

Enough about me… and onto Sketch 127, this is the first card I made; the image is Watering Can Mousy from Great Impressions and the sentiment is Just for You from Hero Arts.
Watering Can Mousy

And for the second card, I used the image Bunny Wonders from Inky Antics, as well as the sentiment Sitting & Thinking. I figured I better make another one that was the same dimension as the sketch.

More BaZooples

Once again the following cards are made using BaZooples, which are now available at Inky Antics. Since these cards will be used for an Inky Antic display the designer paper and cardstock was all coordinated to be displayed together. I used Bazzill cardstock and the designer paper is from BasicGrey’s Origins collection.

For each card I colored the image using Copic’s, my first time coloring images with Copics!

Let me explain… In December I was at my local art supply store (Meininger) and they happened to be having a sale on Copic Sketch Markers, I decided to purchase some just to see if I liked them. I brought them home did some scribbling on cardstock, didn’t like them. About three weeks later and after watching numerous YouTube tutorials I gave them another try, this time blending… still wasn’t happy with my results. I made the decision to sell them, my stamping neighbor had ladies lined up ready to purchase what I had.

Two days before selling the Copic’s, Jackie from Inky sent me the BaZoople images and I just knew they would be perfect for coloring with Copics. I went out and purchased more and knew I had to learn fast how to blend; it was back to YouTube for me. I think my images came out pretty okay for being my first time actually coloring an image, I’m sure with more practice I can eventually get the hang of proper blending. That’s my Copic story.

Inky Antics

I have some exciting news to share with you all; I’m an Inky Antics Designer!

I have always enjoyed Inky images, ever since those little turtles started popping up in SCS Gallery many years ago. In 2007 my very talented friend Keri Lee who was designing for Inky Antics at the time contacted me and asked if I could help Jackie (Inky’s Creative Director) with some designs for CHA, I was so thrilled, it was a great opportunity and of course I just had to do it because I loved Inky images. I stayed on with Inky until I took my break from stamping and now I’m so excited that Jackie brought me on as part of her team once again.

Inky Antics Spring 2011 Supplement
is now available for download HERE, it has some really cute stamps… clear and rubber. The following cards are made using BaZooples characters, which stands for Baby Zoo People.

WOYWW


I’m sure most of you that visit many crafters’ blogs have seen this fun weekly challenge called What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday. My stamping friend Sue (Sue’s Stamping Stuff) has been playing along for quite some time and I always enjoy seeing her WOYWW blog posts. Today I decided to take the plunge and play along. I always keep my work desk fairly organized, so chances are you wouldn’t see much.

Here’s a peek of what I worked on today (click on photo for a larger view). I finished up some Valentine cards, I had a couple images colored I just had to work on the layout for each card. Aren’t those bunny stamps the cutest? I will be using those real soon. If you look closely you can see that I made a pink paper rose… just not sure what I should do with it, you can find the tutorial here at Kaufman’s Cottage.

Look what I have sitting on my chair, a new Janome Sew Mini that I purchased last Thursday. I had every intention to take it out and play with it, but I only got as far as opening the top flap and then I moved it off the chair. Once I get it out I need to learn how to sew a straight line before I can sew on cards.

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet: A Novel by Jamie Ford

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet: A Novel
by Jamie Ford

(Kindle Edition)

Henry Lee is a 12-year-old Chinese boy who falls in love with Keiko Okabe, a 12-year-old Japanese girl, while they are scholarship students at a prestigious private school in World War II Seattle. Henry hides the relationship from his parents, who would disown him if they knew he had a Japanese friend. His father insists that Henry wear an "I am Chinese" button everywhere he goes because Japanese residents of Seattle have begun to be shipped off by the thousands to relocation centers. This is an old-fashioned historical novel that alternates between the early 1940s and 1984, after Henry's wife Ethel has died of cancer. A particularly appealing aspect of the story is young Henry's fascination with jazz and his friendship with Sheldon, an older black saxophonist just making a name for himself in the many jazz venues near Henry's home. Other aspects of the story are more typical of the genre: the bullies that plague Henry, his lack of connection with his father, and later with his own son. Readers will care about Henry as he is forced to make decisions and accept circumstances that separate him from both his family and the love of his life.

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet is a wonderful story that I enjoyed immensely. This incredibly sweet and touching novel brings an intimate look into the life of Henry Lee, a Chinese-American boy and an Japanese-American girl, Keiko, who befriend each other and then experience the confusing feelings and innocence of first love.

The historical and cultural aspects are very moving, although fiction, I did learned a great deal about the time before, during, and after WWII. Reading about the evacuations and the camps that the Japanese families were sent to made me sad. I guess not living during that time, I wouldn't fully understand the emotions that everyone was feeling then but I can't understand how something like that could happen. The word unfair kept going through my mind while I read these portions of the book.

This was a fabulous book that I would recommend to all my friends, and if I am ever in Seattle I would love to visit the Panama Hotel.



Card Request

Recently my dear blogging friend Sue (Sharing What I Love) posted a request for anyone willing to send her husband a birthday card. On the 22nd of this month John will be celebrating his 90th birthday and Sue would love to present him with 90 cards on his special day. Sue is also planning an Open House and his cards will be on display at the celebration. If you would like to send John a card, please email Sue for her address at berkerster@gmail.com.

This is the birthday card I made for John. I always have a hard time coming up with masculine cards; maybe I need to challenge myself to make them more often.

Thanks for visiting and thank you, in advance, to those of you that send John a card.

With All My Heart

With All My Heart

I started this card on Monday when the House Mouse & Friend’s Monday Challenge #88 was posted and I finished it this evening. After coloring the image I wasn’t sure what kind of layout I wanted to use… that’s why it just sat at my work desk for the week. This evening I decided to go simple, very simple, no thrills or frills. This challenge was all about hearts, I used the House Mouse image With All My Heart and I added Glossy Accents to the candy hearts.

An Early Spring

Groundhog Hollow

This morning the country’s most famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, predicted an early spring. The Groundhog Day celebration is rooted in a German superstition that says if a hibernating animal casts a shadow on Feb. 2, the Christian holiday of Candlemas, winter will last another six weeks. If no shadow was seen, legend said spring would come early.

After many years of having this Inky Antic stamp, Groundhog Hollow, I was finally able to make a card with it. For the past few years I just completely forgot about Groundhog’s Day, but this year I was determined to use it. After making sure of the date, I placed sticky notes around my stamp area to remind me.
