Always enjoy your posts. It is a word that can be used in different ways but usually means the person saying it is happy with the results of something and says it all! Take care and have a great week, Angela xXx

Oh - I'm sorry I missed your anniversary. Happy belated anniversary. :-) On the ATG gun question - it's all in the wrist. And the type of tape you're using. All I can say is practice makes perfect. Although when you're first starting a new roll - it sometimes goops up more. I find I do best when I make deliberate quick motions. Kind of like tilt the gun forward at the end. I find if I don't do that the runner doesn't know you're done. :-) I have also tried some off brand tape refills and have been extremely disappointed with some of them. If you find an off brand that works - stick with it. This is not a piece of equipment where any tape will do. Once you get the hang of using it - you will love it. But you have to give it a chance and develop your technique. My friend Diane didn't give it time and I ended up with her ATG - I wish she had given it a chance, but I do like having an extra. :-) I have one with acid free tape for scrapbooking and the other has general purpose for my cards. Long answer, but I wanted to try to be thorough. :-)

Wonderful art this week. I love the sketching with the words-how professional looking it is- you could (and maybe you will) frame it. Hope this weekend is good for you!

Fun post about the word "Cheers" and also informative.
Your thank-you card really caught my eye with the pattern and the birds and the clean space to the right, a really delightful design.
Can I say a belated "Happy Anniversary" to you and your wife?
Happy belated anniversary!! Beautiful scriptures you chose, and beautiful photos and work! Thank you so much for your sweet messages on my blog and thank you for joining us at OBW :) Wishing you a peaceful weekend.

Lovely mix of work in your post Arnoldo, and happy anniversary.

Hi Arnoldo, I am loving your various projects.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. By the way your number is 39, not 40. Think someone must have dropped out, as I was 20 earlier this morning, but my number has changed to 19.
