Just Chillin

Hi Everyone!!! Yesterday was a bad day for me..I was so exhausted! I hate this feeling but so far no magic pill has been found for me..I was pretty bad but I made myself try to do something...so I made this card :) ..I wanted to use bright and fun colors (again) something that would bring light in my misery..This DSP was in the Sale A Bration ..which is now retired :( ..I did use the buttons from the awesome set called Designer Brights Collection #119747 ...The image is another set that I absolutely love Peace Within #114312 ..The Grosgrain Ribbon is Pumpkin Pie #109030 ..The flowers are from prima and the gems are from my "stash"..As I am getting ready to sell a lot of crud I have that I have collected over the years..I discovered a few cute/adorable things that I had to save for my cards and this little green bird is one of them...You will be seeing more hanging things from my cards soon LOL! I used Mojo Mondays sketch :) ..have a great day everyone...I'm still very very tired but I hope to make a card for tomorrow ....
Thank You!!! Come Again!!!!

Owl and Pretzels

Hi Everyone!!! Sorry about no card yesterday..I went to the hospital yesterday morning and had my biopsy..Let me tell you that was an experience I could live without..It felt like they were trying to shove a regular straw from one side of my neck to the other side just like Frankenstein :) but with needles Oui..then they took their sample and came back and said they didn't have enough so they went and NOW tried to shove a milkshake straw from one side of my neck to the other..I am not kidding when I tell ya ..It freakin sucked ..So the last thing on my mind was my blog LOL! ..But I made this card this morning using the sketch from Mojo Monday and Yep another punch (Two-Step Owl XL #118074) ..It was so much fun :) ...SU DSP (Play Date #117168)..I also used an old set of Metal Tags from SU..the sentiment says Thank You but there's a glare and fingerprints on the tag but it's there :) ..the sentiment is from set Silhouette Sentiments (Hostess # 118474) ...the dew drops are from my "stash" ..I hope you have a great day...see ya tomorrow with my Friday Funny :) ...O and I did make my big soft pretzels and they taste just like them..so cool!!!

Quilted Card and Questions ;)

Hi Everyone!!!! It's Monday the start of Spring Break, so that means lots of time for cookie creating and crafting :) ....OK so I have to ask...Did anyone watch Extreme Couponing, the one with the GUY couponer?? when they showed his basement and his wall of 1,000 toothpastes I was amazed but when they showed his stockpile of Tampons and Kotexs I had to wonder...Does he hope to woo a girl with his pile of feminine products? Is that a big catch for a girl??..a guy who's not embarrassed to buy these products?? He can tell her SEE I'll do anything for you babe (big grin on his face)...Or does he have them in case his basement floods and you can't really buy sand bags with coupons so this is the next best thing??....OR is he prone to hurting himself so when he starts to bleed from his wound he has instant absorbent?? Does he get a lot of nose bleeds so he opens up the tampons and sticks them up his nose? Does he open up the wings and think there cool airplanes?? I'm just wondering :) Hmmmm... Anyways this card was made using Beate's quilted card technique..Lots of work but love the end result :) ...The DSP is from SU (Retired) and the butterfly is from the Bigz die Beautiful #114507..the sentiment is from a retired set also...I hope you like it :)..have a wonderful Monday
Thank You!!!! Come Again!!!!!

Sitting Pretty :)

Hi Everyone!!! Did you watch Biggest Loser last night? OK so how many of you would have jumped off the skyline? I WOULD!!!!! I would be scared Sh**Less! but hey when would an opportunity like that ever happen to you again? I am terrified of flying but I do it because I am not going to be the reason my family can't see the world ..and who wants to stay in one city and never experience anything? Not Me! so I put my clean big girl panties on and deal with it when the time comes...OK on to the card..I was playing around while watching BL and this is what I came up with :) ..I like the sketch (feel free to use it) :) ..The DP is from Memory Box (Gossamer) ..I have never inked up this image and I have had her for about 2 years, so that means I don't know who made it :(...sheesh! but isn't she beautiful..I did add two different stickles in her wings...I really wanted soft colors for this card and I think I achieved it :) The flowers are from Prima and the white pearls are from Recollections.. Have a great day!
Thank You!!! Come Again!!!!

Hi Everyone!!!! I missed posting yesterday but I had no free time..I went to the movies with my friend..saw Arthur (like the original better) ...and had to rush home to make pizza dough because Cordell was bringing over 3 friends to spend the night ...so that pizza picture down below..is completely homemade :) ..Loved making it..Kids really liked it too ..I also made a original Juniors Cheesecake and we busted into this morning and Man O Man! I love cheesecake and it was scrumptious! love it :) ...I did make some strawberry sauce to go with it but I didn't show it hehe...so yesterday was baking and cooking all day.. Chiy and I left home for about an 1hr because we are training to run a 5K in Sept..we came home and all you hear is 4 boys saying ..stop killing me!!! OK revenge! ..Yep playing Halo..One of the boys brought his X-Box...Oui... On to the card..I made this to show you yesterday :) ..it was a sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges.. All the DSP is from SU..I did use two different DSP's ..The image is one that I love more and more each time I use it :) ..#120531 The Nicest Things ..The flower is from Prima..It's a simple card but I like it :) I hope you do too :) ...

More Fartsy Then Artsy

Hi Everyone!!! Well yesterday they turned the power off to our whole neighborhood! I forgot they were going to do that LOL!... but sign of the times..I'm wracking my brain trying to remember if I paid the bill..Then I remembered getting a notice that April 6Th power would be out from 9-6! what!! OMG!! do you want to know how much I rely on power!!! A lot!! I was so bored..I couldn't make a card because my sewing machine didn't work..I couldn't bake ..no power..I couldn't watch TV (missed Ellen)! grr!!!..I sure as heck am NOT an outside girl, so no weeding or gardening...(my whole idea of outside is Feeding The Turkeys and running back inside)....Stick me with a fork I'm done! ..So I went shopping :)
They finally gave me my power back ..insert.. (Evil Laugh)
So Chiy and I watched that new show Extreme Couponing and Holy Smokes that's a full time job!!! 5 hours in a grocery store! and hours cutting, organizing! No way!! OK so the only difference between a Hoarder and an Extreme Coupon person is that an extremer has there stuff organized! but come on your a hoarder when your whole house is full of groceries! who in the world needs 100 deodorants?? The only thing I didn't see in any of those houses is a grocery cart! Both disturbing...AND if I was to put about 50 packages of toilet paper under my kids bed I think when I was sleeping they would wrap me in it but I'm sure they would scent it with deodorant first..they do love me after all (I think).....Sheesh! to much..if you didn't watch the show WATCH IT!!! and of course after Extreme Couponing they show Hoarders Buried Alive hahaha! OK I'm done ranting..I tell ya I was so bored yesterday! so I'm making up for it :)
This card is weird...............I was playing around and this is what I came up with....I thought I would be different but Hmmmm...All the DSP is from SU..The image is called Extreme Guitar #115328...The sentiment is from Hostess set Something To Celebrate #121955..The silk ribbon is SU :)...Have a great day!!!!
Thank You!!!! Come Again!!!!

My 1ST Pinwheel!

Hi Everyone!!! I wanted to make a card that screamed Spring/Summer and I came up with this! what do you think? Chiy said I had to mention that I was looking for a straw that was White or Yellow and couldn't find one and she said there's a candy stick in the drawer and WA LA! it made it perfect..Thanks Chiy :) (Brat) :)
Everything is from SU ..the DSP is from the hostess 6x6 set level 1 #121028..The sentiment is from the stamp set Easter Blossoms #122057 ..So class do you want to make this card on the 15TH????? It was so fun to make and I love the colors
, it's exactly how I envisioned it ..I hope you have a great day ...See ya tomorrow
