Another Winter Storm..

Good Saturday Morning...

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend we are bracing for a huge storm here. We are first getting rain which has already started. Then they are forecasting over the next 3 days around 60cm(2 feet) of snow! Yikes , guess that means March is coming in like a lion!

Today I want to show you a card I made with the Top Note I don't know who to give the credit to as I have seen these all over the internet! Here I used Bella Rose designer paper #112041, Congrats #113770 from the SAB catalogue.
From the same Congrats set I used the welcome to the wedded bliss club stamp, to stamp the inside of the card. I also used Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red. The PP and topnote are put through the Big Shot and I used the Texturz plates Backgrounds 1. I really love how this turned out. I hope that the picture is looking as good as it does in real life!
Thanks for stopping by,

Happy Friday...

I don’t know about you but I am not a big fan of blogs that have music! Scares the dickens out of me most of the time. I would like the option of turining it on once I'm on the site.
The weekend is upon us, Skip will be gone to a Boat Show for most of it. I plan on getting some stamping done. I will also be preparing for upcoming classes, making a schedule and such.
This is just going to be a short post today.
So what did you think of Survivor? I think the coach should be the one voted off!!

Time will tell as Giovanni is here with me all day. Well there is always tonight... Well part of the night as I will be watching Survivor!

Trying this again..

Well lets see what happens now, when I tried to upload this post and photo earlier I was having lots of trouble.
Here's another card using the Just Buzzin'By #113228. Card stock used SU, Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Carmel and Whisper White. And added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter #102023. Glitter always seems to jazz up a card...

Just noticed that the time stamp is not correct. I will have to look into that. As I did post on Tuesday Feb 24 but it says Monday. And then I also notice some other days are wrong too.... Told you this was a learning process.
Wonder what time stamp this post will be...

Monday, February 23, 2009

I hope you are having a terrific weekend so far! Yesterday I finished up my swaps and they went postal last night. I had a hard time getting the cards together, they still didn’ t come out quite as I had planned for them to be.

Good Monday Morning!

Lots to tell you about today. Last week we had snow and today it’s rain. As I’m writing this I can hear the rain just pounding on the window. And the wind is suppose to pick up and gust around 100! Hmm wonder what I like better rain or snow.
Last night I used my stamp-a ma-jig 101049 for the first time ohh what was I waiting for love it. Its really handy with the All in the Family #113488 and the Sweet Litte Sentiments 113690 is hostess level 1. I have just the right person in mind for this card.

Stampin' Up News:

If you haven't heard, yet, Stampin' Up! is going back to one catalog a year starting with the July catalog it will go back to one year, so it will be good through June 2010 Also, there will be 3 mini catalogs, each lasting 4 months minis will have new products as well as new hostess options in addition to those in the main catalog. There will also be 2 Decor Elements catalogs per year

Yeah I really like the idea of just one catalog

I will be sending this card to my daughter Tiffany. NO its not for her! It’s for Juniors brother and sister in law. This is a case from traceteach at SCS.
Thanks for stopping by...


Hi all Sunday's post is a little late.

Good Saturday Morning!

Wow, seems like the weeks just fly by. This week my youngest turned 20 YIKES!! Talk about weeks flying by seems like not long ago he was just a toddler running around.

Later on today is the shadow box class. I will take a few photos and post later.
Today's card is using Embrace Life #114958. Don't you just love this set, there is so so much you can do with it. Again another cased card just can't remember who or where. I will have to start marking it down... If its yours let me know so I can give you the credit.
Wishing everyone a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by...

Happy Friday...

I survived the storm yesterday, I will be so glad when spring arrives! Last night I was working on swap cards. They just don't seem to want to come together they I want them too. Once they have been recieved I will share with you.

I just love the sock monkey, and my daughter Tiffany gave me one for Christmas. Love it...
Here I used Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White and the balloons are Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red and Pink Piroutte. You can find the Sock Monkey #111550 on page 68 in the Spring-Summer 2009 Idea Book and Catalogue. Sock Monkey also has accessories that you can buy to go with him.
