Rocks has sores on his poor face..this will be the 6TH time he's been to the vet since July 1st ..hehe High Maintenance dog :) ..and my poor cat has lost her squeaker :( ...she's so skinny, poor baby but she's 15 years old so I will hope for the best...On to the card..I think this is the second time I've played with a sketch by I Heart 2 Stamp..But I loved the sketch .All the DP is from SU..the solid cardstock, buttons and fiber are all from CTMH...The image is from Dustin Pike..I did use a lot of stickles to bring out the bubbles :) ..the cute turtle button is from my "stash" ...I think that's it but O I have to tell you that I am fully committed now to having classes I just spent $350.00 on products to play with LOL!!! no going back now :) ..so it's on baby hehe..

Back To School!

Hi Everyone!!!! It has been a crazy week!!!! it started off with Tim not working his second job all week, so we went bike riding every single day...we did so many miles in one day that I came home and passed out, I was so freakin tired! my rolly polly body didn't like it one bit..to top it off I pull Rocks behind me in his bike stroller..(he loves it!!!) ..so that's an added 65lbs of dog and stroller on these poor donut filled thighs I have..LOL!.but I did it again the next day and the next...but on Friday I did nothing but cook because we had a bday party for Cordell at the park where we live...so I cooked everything from Appetizers, Side Dishes, Desserts and Tim barbecued the main stuff..So all day Friday and all morning Saturday it was nothing but chaos of food everywhere..So I have not had one spare moment to give to my blog which is to bad because I made this card to go into a lot of challenges but the biggest one I missed was a tryout for the guest DT spot with The Greeting Farm..I am so bummed but there's nothing I can do about it...BUT I am trying to get ready for my card class in a few weeks and I am so excited, I have people RSVPing to come with two to three extra friends..I hope everyone likes what they will be making.. Nerve Racking :)...And the new Tastefully Simple catalog comes out on Wednesday and the new Fall/Winter stuff looks and tastes so amazing, so I have been asking friends to have parties for me to help me out..
OK enough about my crazy week and now back to the good stuff :) ..my card was made using the sketch from The Sweet Stop..and I also did the challenge for Stamp Something
they asked us for Back To School..and you will see on my card I used a pencil button that I adhered to the Prima flower...I also used the schoolgirl from The Greeting Farm...I did another challenge and it is for Papertake Weekly Challenge
They had a recipe challenge 3,2,1..I think I hit those requirements I used 3 different types of paper from Basic Grey (Olivia) and Basics White..with 2 little pearls from Recollections by the image and one pencil button...I did use CTMH white buttons but stuck the pink pearls on top..I did paper piece her outfit...I really liked this card and I hope you do too :) ..I think that's it but I will be back every single day this week to make up for being gone all last week ...
Thank You!!!! Come Again!!!

Party With Balloons

Hi Everyone!!! I wish I could tell you that we went and picked up Bear Cub yesterday but it didn't happen..we were so disappointed :( ..Cordell and Tim were super bummed..so I took them for donuts and a movie....we were told that Bear Cubs blood work came back positive for Heart worm..my poor baby can't catch a break..so he can't have his surgery till the worms are gone..we have no idea when that will be...I had the whole diaper bag ready to go and had to put it away..so yes we are super bummed but it is in his best interest to stay with his foster mommy till he has his surgery but in the meantime Tim and I are glad that he has loving, caring people around him..he's getting loved by everyone :) ..I can't wait to get my gentle giant but in the meantime we will keep positive thoughts for his health....thank you everyone!

OK to the card..I used a sketch from Create4fun Challenge...all the DP is from Basic Grey (Cupcake)..this cute image is from The Greeting Farm (Make A Wish)..all the buttons are a mix of SU and bag o buttons..the fibers are from Making Memories and the flowers are from Prima..the card was supposed to have two flowers but I forgot to adhere the second one down and it fell off LOL! when I took a picture of it I forgot to reattach it so just use your imagination that you see two flowers :) hehe...I did cut out and pop dot the little girl...did you notice no bling ..shock! :)
I hope you have a fantastic day! Tomorrow is back to school just for Chiy...how sad :( I really miss my kids when they go back to school...
Thank You!!! Come Again!!!!
P.S we watched The Expendables ..fantastic movie!!!! I will go back and watch it again...I love the 80's :)

Just Chillin!!!

Hi Everyone!!! sorry! it's been crazy busy...Tomorrow is the big day we get Bear Cub (his new name) LOL!...his surgery is today so keep good thoughts for him...when he gets out of surgery he has to wear a donut around his neck for two weeks (poor baby) but it's to protect him from himself ..if he messes with his face he could potentially tear his stitches..I'll take a picture of him wearing his non edible donut LOL!
OK on to the card I finally have my printer back so now I can start using my long neglected digi's and of course I had to start it off with my Sassy Studio Designs image this is a image that I think she discontinued :(..so sorry I don't know her name. ..I used this weeks sketch from Sketch Saturday ..The DP is from SU and the corner bling is from Heidi Swapp...all the flowers, sticker and ribbon are from my "stash" ...I also played with the Sassy Studio Designs challenge...they asked us to use Polka Dots ..They were also sponsoring another challenge blog called Practical Scrappers and they asked for a Summer Themed card..so I think I met all these requirements LOL!
... I think that's it for today..I do have a card for tomorrow..so come back :) ...
Thank You!!! Come Back!!!

Hi Everyone!!! today's card was made using The Sweet Stop sketch..I did change it a little :) ..I loved the sentiment because it felt like it fit the hedgehog (Penny Black) but after creating the card and adhering down the sentiment it kind of blends into the polka dot DP but IRL you can see it :) ....All the DP is from Basic Grey (Sultry)..the buttons are from SU..the bumblebee buttons are from Michael's and the beautiful flower is from Prima...The bling sentiment is from Heidi Swapp..I did use stickles on the flower and bee's wings...I hope you have a fantastic day..I am off fabric shopping..
