July 2008

You're my Hero!!!

No, no, really, YOU ARE!!! My hero that is. I couldn't blog without you. You are constant entertainment for me. You're always there for me. You surprise me ALL THE TIME! I love that! :)

Okay, onto my card... LOL

Amusesuperhero

I had a special request from one of my co-workers for this card. I forgot to make it that night and ended up waking myself up the next morning thinking about Super Heroes. I was like..."WHAT THE HECK?" It finally clicked that I didn't make the card. So at 4am, I crawled out of bed and started stamping this card. And considering how crabby I am in the morning? Well, I was a little surprised I was able to come up with a card like this. LOL

OH HEY! I almost forgot to tell you...the concert last night? AWESOME!!! If you love John Mayer, YOU HAVE TO SEE HIM LIVE!!! Oh my goodness, it was one of the best concerts I have ever been to. The only thing that could have made it better? A/C. Oh, and having my Sis there chillin' okay, more like, SWEATIN' with Dana and I. LOL (See Pancho, I didn't forget you! LOLOLOLOL)

Alright, well, I am EXHAUSTED!!! I am running on 4 hours sleep and I am OUT OF GAS!!! LOL

On that note... I am outta here.

Have a happy Peeps!

Not that they look alike or anything...cause, uh....THEY DON'T! LOL But Molly is one of my favorite names and well, it just happened to come to mind when I was done drawing the owl. Does that make any sense? LOL Sorry... I am a little giddy...all the new owl rubbah is going to my head! LOL

OH! Here is a pick of all my little babies (I stole this pic from my Sister's blog...heehee)...

Well not Molly, but the rest of them are!!! Be patient little ones, I will ink you up soon enough. Like tomorrow, yeah, definitely tomorrow. But for now? I have to get my butt to work and then? I HAVE TO GO SEE JOHN MAYER IN CONCERT!! Yes Peeps, I am having a girls night out with my good friend Dana tonight. I CAN'T WAIT!!! WOOHOO!!!!

Up for a Twinchie Challenge?

A what? A Twinchie! A who? A Twinchie! What the heck? LOLOL

From the lips of Anna, a Twinchie is... a 2"x2" panel, either as its own art piece, or as part of an overall design. Hmmm... sounds good...so what's the challenge? WELLLLLLLL...we also had to incorporate the following: citrus colors, faux or real sewing, a faux or real button, and patterned paper.

Who sucked me into this little challenge? None other than... ANNA WIGHT!!! I am a complete sucker for her. I have a hard time telling her no. Besides, it sounded like FUN! And I am all about FUN!!

So here is my little "twinchie"...

Rrhularichard

Someone's kitty had babies and guess what? They like our side yard... A LOT!!! There are three of them and let me just tell you... I WANT THEM ALL!! Robert says no though... WHAN!! But if I put food out and they hang out "outside" does that really make them mine? You know, even if they go "home" at night? heehee

This is me this morning...

Mbidontdomornings

What? Did you actually think I woke up and put my prom dress on? Are you nuts? LOL I am sooooooo not a morning person! Just ask my Sister... she will tell you what a wench I am.  (Be nice Pancho! LOLOLOL)

So yeah,  in the morning, I need a few minutes, okay, maybe an hour, before I am ready to converse/face the world. Coffee & a shower are a MUST for me. Definite MUST!! LOL

Inside the card the saying is... "I don't do mornings." I was trying to figure out how to get it on the front of the card but I got too carried away with the frame and the ribbon and the button and the embossing folder etc. WHEW! It was all I could do just to FINISH the card!

Anywho, I hope you all have a FAB Monday! As for me? I am off to get my cup o'joe for the morn!

See ya tomorrow Peeps!
