Two Piece ATC set by Rhonda & Ashley Chase
First off todays card is a two piece atc set. Yup that is right. The winner gets the whole set. Today is also the very last day of the month. That means if you haven't won anything yet this is your last chance to do so before we shift over to a new month. I think it would be fun to make the last day of the month a special day. That way anyone who hasn't been fortunate enough to win or has just not entered can have one last shot at something extra special. The last day will be bigger or fancier, (in some way that I have yet to fully decide), than the previous days creatures.
Ash made the splotch for this card in September of last year in preparation for a splotch saturday event. I encouraged her against making splotches that went across more than one page after she made it... perhaps I'm reconsidering. She also helped me decide to give this creature a tail instead of legs and told me when I was done (although I added just a little more that she liked.)
Today has been a very long day packed with lots of stories you may find interesting that would probably make a less than boring television show... I'm just tired. It's a long day so there is more to talk about and less energy to do it in... :(
If I tell you really fast that will just induce a series of questions that will probably take longer to answer than writing this. I've possibly used more energy just making excuses why not to tell you about today. In order to give you potential insight into the drawing I shall attempt it in a mild over view kinda way.
I had an appointment in Eugene today a bit after one pm. I had kept Ash home from school the day before for stomach pain. I had a really hard time falling asleep last night. When I woke up this morning it was 9 am already and I'd slept through the alarms to get Ash off to the bus. I wasn't really sure if she was feeling better or not and I'd run out of time to take her into school. I got everyone packed up and took them to my mom at church where she was meeting with some other ladies. After that I headed out to Eugene. Eugene is about a 2 hr drive from where I live give a little. As I was passing by Toledo (15 min out of town) I saw a female solo hitchhiker on the side of the rode looking for a ride. I've always wanted to pick up a hitchhiker but for various reasons have decided against it. I pulled over a bit past her and she didn't notice. I thought about it a bit and left. I got about 5 miles down the road and pulled over. I prayed a bit and thought about it, adrenaline rushing.
I turned around and headed back. This time I was able to pull up right near her. I asked her where she was headed and she said Eugene. I then was fortunate enough to enjoy her company all the way to my destination. She had just been in Toledo visiting her daughter who is the same age as my son. We shared many similar interests and had stories to tell that interacted well together. I must say I really enjoyed it. Next time she comes down to visit her daughter she is going to give me a call.
After that the appointment went smoothly with some interesting discussions with the doctor spurred by my choice in activist t-shirt. We had very contradicting views but were able to have a comfortable discussion without anyone being aggravated I can't imagine I changed her view but I did enjoy our talk. I need a bit more practice at that.
Finished with my appointment I drove home alone. I missed the company. It felt like a much longer drive back. I started the card in the doctors office but really didn't have much time to get into it. I finished it in bed with Ash sitting next to me on the ipad somewhere in the 8pm range.
When searching for a creature use the specific name or number only for best results.
