Steve's in the air!

Well, it's been a long day and it's only 9:30 am! Steve and I were up at 2 am...yes, you read that correctly! He needed to be at the airport by 3:30 am so we needed to leave here by 2:45 am. He was all checked in and ready to board by 4:10 and I left the airport. Then, I was back home and in bed.

Steve called at about 6:50 am and said that they had maintenance problems on his flight from GF to Mpls. so after boarding, they had to switch to another plane and start over! When he got to Mpls (was supposed to reach Mpls around 6:06....I'm assuming he was late....) he raced to get to the gate for his next flight which was supposed to leave at 6:50 am. That plane also had maintenance issues!!!! He got there, I think that they boarded everyone and then had to go to another plane! Yikes! He's two for two...last plane for the day anyway. I just checked and the web shows that he's almost to Houston.

Here's another April contest submission. I markered the stamp and then after stamping, used my aquapainter to "smudge" the color a bit to make it look more watercolored. Simple tech to do!

The stamp set used is Summer by the Sea. It's not retired but not shown in the current catalog. SU came out with a dormant list. To see the entire dormant list and it's contents, click on this link:
