February 2007

Nag, nag, nag...

My Sister is being a NAG tonight!! She is giving me such a hard time about not posting and not sharing the beautiful flowers she sent me. Pancho, really, give a girl a BREAK!! LOLOLOL I should note that YOU haven't posted TODAY! HELLO!!! Ü

So, just to get my favorite NAG off my back here is a picture of the wonderful flowers she sent me:


Aren't they so cute? I absolutely love them!! Thanks again Pancho!! xoxoxo

Alrighty then, now that I have that out of the way...hahahaha...onto other things... Ü

Tonight I was thinking of my little monkey of a niece, her name is Audrey. I shared a picture of her a couple of weeks ago but if you don't remember her I have another picture to share...


She is the little one on the left and Makayla is on the right. Aren't they so cute? I really wish my sister would have had a child for me. But no... big sigh... LOL

Anywho, the little monkey on the left is sick right now so I thought I would make her a card. This is what I came up with:


Stamps: You're Neat & Karen Foster Snap Stamps that I scored off of Anna Wight's Sassy & Sweet Shop, if you haven't checked out her cute little store you really ought to!! Ü

Cardstock: Chocolate Chip Pocket Note (can't get enough of these cute little things!), Cool Caribbean & Naturals

Ink: Basic Brown, Cool Caribbean, Blush Blossom, Close to Cocoa

Misc: Flirty Ribbon, SU! Punch

Well, that's about it for me tonight. I hope you all enjoy your evening!! Until tomorrow... Ü


Itty Bitty Diddy...

Now I am just cracking myself up!! LOL

So here is the little diddy I whipped up last night:


Stamps: Big Pieces, Circle of Friendship & All in a Row

Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Brocade Blue & Whisper White

Inks: Pixie Pink, Pretty in Pink, Craft White

Hello.... anyone out there?

Anyone feeling LUCKY tonight???? Guess what time it is? Time to announce the BLOG CANDY winner, YEAH!!

Well, out of 51 posts (which is totally AWESOME!!) the lucky winner is.... drum roll please....


Here is her post:

Right now I am loving Cool Caribbean! Thanks for sharing with us! Christine

One design but two cards...

Well, I was only able to get one card design made on Sunday but hey, I made two copies. One for me, one to give away. LOLOLOL No, just kidding, I made them both to give away. Ü

So I saw on someone's blog a reference to how to make your own scalloped oval instead of buying all of those giga punches. Let me just say... IT WORKS!!! Check it out:


I actually think it is CUTER than the scalloped giga punch!! Want to see the tutorial? Sarah Moore has a WONDERFUL tutorial on her BLOG; go check it out. Don't worry, I'll wait for you... do to do, mmmmm, sigh.... okay, done yet? Ü HUGE THANKS to Sarah for such easy instructions!!

Alright, here is everything I used on my piggy card:

Cardstock: Naturals, Thin cork and Not Quite Navy

Ink: Basic Brown, Not Quite Navy

Misc: Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol, SU! Ribbon, Linen Thread, Slit Punch, Night of Navy Eyelets

Enjoy! Ü

So far this weekend, six down...

Now I guess I have another six plus to go since my friend Dana has been showing off this weekend. You really need to go check out her cards, I especially love the cards she made with her Paper Bag Studio stamps. I feel so inspired to use mine now. Better go dust them off. LOLOLOL

Here is a card I made with my Autumn Leaves Flourishes set & some $1 Rhonna Farrer stamps from Joann's:


Oh, check this out, this was too funny. My cat Callie (she is an ole biddy by the way), was sitting in front of my computer watching my ITUNES visualizer. It was hysterical, almost like she was mesmerized!!


She, being Callie, actually stayed up and stamped with me until the wee hours of the morning. What a good girl! Sure makes the Mama feel loved!! Ü

Okay, back to cards. LOL This is my funky chicken card. As most of you know I am a HUGE fan of Cat's Pajamas stamps, so I had to show 'em the love last night. Our friend Jay just celebrated his 40th birthday so this is what I came up with:


Anywho, I am off to change the laundry, have a little breakfast and then get some more stamping done. YEAH! Ü   

Did someone say BLOG CANDY???

Who needs to add some color to their life? If you need some, I have some!! Ü I have these Classic Stampin' Spots up for grab as Blog Candy... anyone interested?


If so, leave me a comment below and tell me your all time favorite color. Want to know mine? Right now I am partial to Not Quite Navy but if you ask me tomorrow it could be something totally different. I also really like Certainly Celery, such a delicious color, mmmmhmmmm. Maybe that is why my office/stamp room to painted that color?!?! LOL

Anywho, you have until 8pm MST on Monday to leave me a comment, at 8:01pm I will throw all your names into a bowl and randomly pick a name. YEAH!!

Good luck everyone!! I am off to stamp the night away... Ü

1:06am, crazy, just crazy...

What in the world am I doing up this late? I'll tell you what it is. It's my friend Dana emailing me and telling me she has completed six cards already this evening and what have I accomplished??? Uhhhh, nothing! Except for this cute card... neener, neener Dana!! LOL

Cardstock: Rose Red, Whisper White, Bliss Blue

Nighty night! Ü

My stamp haven...

I am getting ready to stamp and thought I should take pictures of my stamp area before it becomes the disaster zone!! Ü

As you know I am in the middle of "purging" my stamp stuff so there is a ton more work to be done!! But here are the before "final purge" pictures:

This is my new ink storage carousal...


Here is my stamp closet busting at the seams...


My main stamp table...


My computer space...


And my entertainment center while stamping...


Okay, I am off to stamp now, see ya later... Ü

Random thoughts tonight...

I had very good intentions of stamping and posting a new card tonight but I ended up getting a little side-tracked. I have started to "purge" my stamp stuff. (Dana, you better not be rolling your eyes at me!! hahaha) Yep, started working on the hall closet first (still not finished there) and then started working on the office. I just can't get over all the "crap" I have. I just keep buying and buying and buying... WILL IT EVER END??? This OBSESSION to have everything??? Sigh...

This will definitely be my biggest purge yet. So what does this mean to you? How will this benefit you? Uh HELLO!!! Can you say blog candy??????? YEAH!!! YEAH!!!! YEAH!!!! Ü I promise to post a contest this weekend. Make sure you check back then, okay?

Now onto a completely different topic...

I realized in the mist of my "purging" that I never shared the sweet little paw print of HJ that my Vet gave me. My Vet is truly the BEST! She is so caring and absolutely LOVES our animals. She especially loved HJ. She even cried with me the day I had to put him down. Such a big heart...  she made sure I left with this:


I have it sitting on my stamp desk since that was his favorite place to sleep. Every time I look at it I think of him, he was truly a wonderful cat. Anywho, just had to share.

You all have a good night and I will definitely be seeing you this weekend!! Ü

night peeps!
