Greetings! It has been, literally, years since I’ve created a David goodie for fans, but I went to his recent concerts in Idaho Falls and couldn’t go empty-handed. So I made five series of nine David Archuleta Trading Cards, for a total of 45 different cards. Each person who got them received 3 identical cards so they HAD to trade. Anyway, it worked.
This is the first of the five series. I call it the “AI Days” series. Seriously old photos!
If you click on my preview image, it will bring up the super-large printable file (give it time!). Save it to your computer to print it. I would love to hear about it if you print and collect your set of trading cards.
Remember I have four more sheets with nine cards each. Whether I make them available will depend on your interest.
I have been sick. Very sick. ICU sick. Took me 13 days to escape from the hospital but I’m home now and working on getting stronger.
I really needed the GroupCard I got today from my David buddies.
Harvey and I had an awesome “Date Night” last night. We’d gotten out of the habit of our Saturday night dates but I hope this marks a return to them. It’s wonderful how smiley I still feel today after watching this animated double feature:
The Lego Movie — Everything Is Awesome!
How To Train Your Dragon — A Great Movie!
I love animated movies and these are two of the best ever that didn’t come out of Disney. It was so much fun comparing the animation styles. “The Lego Movie” world is, of course, made out of Lego but it was amazing how expressive each character was. The way the animators used Lego blocks to represent water, fire, and clouds was really clever. The stiff units were built into flowing, rapidly changing shapes. It all just worked although there was always a piece of my mind thinking about how the movie was animated. But then, that was part of a cheeky tone of the whole film.
The beautifully rendered world of “How To Train Your Dragon” really drew me in. At one point I remember wondering why it was animated–it was so real and the plot was SO good. But then I thought “Because, dragons!” and was swept along. Who knew dragons would be so cat-like? This was my second viewing of this movie and it was at least as enjoyable as the first; I loved seeing it with the Harv. This is just an all-round excellent movie and I am excited that the sequel is out!
If you’ve missed either one of these great films, fix that situation! Yep, I’m still smiling.
Ah Lowly Worm! I was a little too old to actually learn to read from the delightful books by Richard Scarry, but I still had a great time finding Lowly Worm on each page.
I remember going through “Richard Scarry’s Best Word Book Ever” with my then two-year old niece Arielle. On one page I pointed to a picture of a fireplace and said, “Fireplace,” and she pointed to the fireplace in the room (even though it looked very little like the illustration) and gleefully pronounced, “Fireplace! Fireplace!”
Richard Scarry was a great writer and illustrator. So glad to hear his son is adding to his legacy.
There. Don’t you feel better?
The safety and freedom to be a kid again. Yeah.
The baby bear here made me smile today. I’d like to go swimming, too, but maybe not with Mom there.

Found on Cute Overload and they got it from Bored Panda. So I guess it made them smile too.
