Oh, hey.  Whatcha doing?  I'm sitting here watching Brain Games on National Geographic TV and I'm completely intrigued.  This episode is devoted to the topic of Attention and how the brain interprets signals to form immediate assumptions, which may or may not be correct.  It also touched on how the brain can be easily distracted and persuaded to miss important details.  Point in case, a pick pocket demonstrated how simply he could distract his mark with animated gestures, quick dialogue, and the introduction of an unexpected object to completely disorient his victim and walk away with his valuables.  I may not be any smarter for watching this how, but I know how to pick pockets now.  Hey, it's good to have a back-up plan.  Actually, I'm just kidding, this guy was a smooth dude and obviously excellent at slight-of-hand.  Let's just say, I don't want to run into him on the street.  The best part?  A series of Brain Challenges or tests that you're asked to take along with the folks on the show.  I'm a sucker for that sort of thing.  How refreshing that I've found a new show to enjoy that doesn't include any of my standard favorites...a serial killer with a code, lusty vampires, slick ad men, or a meth making chemistry teacher.  I almost feel cerebral right now...NOT!  LOL! 

Anyway...I actually do have a card to share with you today.  I made this just for fun, which was pretty cool for a change.  I used an image from Tiddly Inks called Sugar Angel and decided to get a little crazy with the glitter glue.  Seriously, I have no idea what I was thinking when I took the Stickles to her hair.  Poor girl...lol!  You know how you really like something, but then you do that one teensy extra thing and you're left going..."meh"!  So, yeah, the strands of glitter in her hair...not such a good thing.  I even tried to DISTRACT the viewer with some bling (haha), but not even my crafty slight-of-hand could help this chica's do.  Oh, well.  While you're out and about, why not swing by the Tiddly Inks challenge blog and see what my crafty sistahs are up to today ;D

Catch ya later!  Until then, stay crafty!

  9. Cheryl - just when I think I've seen all of your amazing talent you go ahead and bust out another beauty!! I LOVE the dark browns and vintage creams you've got going on and that touch of green is GORGEOUS! I love the cluster you've created as it adds the perfect "something". And the glitter is the icing on the cake!!

  10. If I had glittered hair, it would have been a disaster. You however, can pull anything off. I think the glitter in the hair is cool and yes, as always your coloring is spectacular.
