TCP Tuesday!!! - Color Challenge

You got it...


And Leigh, the little Vixen, is standing in for Toni who if off playing & stamping in CA right now with a bunch of her Peeps! HOW COULD SHE??? How could she leave us like that? LOL Seriously though, I hope she is having a GREAT time! I miss her though, don't you? :)

Anywho, Leigh, came up with this color challenge...


Who resist playing with those FAB colors?? I mean...HELLO!!! So this morning at o'dark thirty (something like 3:40am) I couldn't sleep (too much on my mind) I decided to get up and stamp. It does a body good to start your day off with a little stamping, don't you think? I do!

Anywho, this is what I came up with:


I had another one of those wonderful die cut cards from Creative Cuts & More in the RIGHT color and whipped this little ditty up. LOVE IT! Just wish I would have waited to stamp the sentiment until the very end cause I think I would have put it ABOVE the ribbon and not below the cut out circles. It would have looked MUCH better if I do say so myself. Still happy with it though! :)

Anywho, I need to hit the shower and put on my prom dress for work. Hope you all have a FAB day!



OH! Make sure to check out Leigh's BLOG for all the TCP Tuesday deets!! See ya Peeps!

CHASE!!! Look what Auntie found!

Okay, so Uncle Robert found him first but I saw him today!! I went to pull out the pool filter basket out, you know,  to clean it and BAM!!! This little guy was in there! Can you believe it? Oh my goodness, he scared the bee-gee-zees out of me! I was not expecting him. And did your Uncle Robert tell me he was in there? NOOOOOOO!!! What a turd, huh? Yah, don't I know it!


So what do you think? Should I bring him to Montana for you??? I am sure your Mom wouldn't mind. I mean, he's just a little guy and all...heehee


So Chase, do you know what kind of snake this is??? I expect you to know the next time I talk to you, okay? And as for cleaning the pool filter? That will have to wait for another day....LOL

Toodles Peeps!



Don't laugh! I never claimed to be anything but a stamper!!! LOL

So challenge #5 for Owl Week was to draw some owls and send them to Johanna. She will then decide which owl she likes the best out of all the entries and then a stamp will be made in that image AND the winner gets $25 to buy stamps from Just Johanna's Odd Bird Planet. Well hello, I am not one to say NO! LOLOL

Okay, so what I am about to show you is NOT to make you laugh...well, okay, I laughed the entire time I was drawing them. And my husband? Well, he laughed at me too! The nerve!!! LOLOL

Being strong...putting myself out there...tahhh-dahhh....


The first one...Miss "O" I just noticed one wing is bigger than the other. Typical for a woman, you know, quite a few woman have one boob bigger than the other. LOL Oh please, don't be offended, I am just stating the facts! LOLOL And Molly? Yeah, not so sure about that Homegirl. LOL I like Edgar, think he is a hottie. But that's just me. Henry is cute too. Little Joe & Big boy though? I have a thing for both of them. heehee

So what do you think? It's okay, you can stop laughing now. No, really, stop...LOL Uh, so, do you like ANY of them? Even one? C'mon, be honest. Are they ugly? Think I have a chance? Or are they UGLY like the new Starbucks mermaid on the hot latte cups? Alright...I am done torturing myself...back to stamping....

See you Peeps later with a card!!


Coffee, tea or me?

No, really...would you prefer coffee, tea or me? NO REALLY!!! No, nevermind, don't tell me. I know some of you would pick coffee over me (Sharon, I know you would, don't deny it!! LOL). And my Sister? She might pick coffee over me too! How could they? It's me, it's me Karrie!!!! LOLOLOL


So are any of you Starbucks lovers? You all know what a fan I am, right? RIGHT! Well, I can't even begin to tell you how UNHAPPY I am with the new mermaid logo they have and the UGLY paper latte cups they have for hot coffee. It's just not right. UGLY I tell you, UGLY!! That is why I think they should make Alma their new logo. Yep, dump the new mermaid. If I can't have the one I want, then I want an OWL!!! And Alma? Well, she is FABULOUS, don't you think??? heehee

Oh hey, check out one of the new mugs I purchased for my Sis and I this morning...


HOW COOL IS THAT??? Love it!! Totally makes me smile. I will let you know how I like it this weekend when I make my iced latte at home. Yeppers, practicing to be a Barista! LOL

Okay, well, I think I am going to hit the sack early tonight. I hope you all have a FAB evening!

See you tomorrow!
