Ahhhh, Saturday!!! YEAH!!

So thankful it is the weekend and a three day weekend at that! I need some down time... in a BIG WAY!! LOL

Today I have big plans for stamping, stamping and even MORE stamping. I can't wait. I even told hubby that if he would let me stamp all day today that I would gladly clean the house by myself tomorrow. Then... on Monday? I am off to do some more stamping cause hubby has to work. Boo to work. Yeah for me! LOL

OH MY GOSH!! I didn't tell you...last night...I went and got a PEDICURE!! Can I just tell you how incredibly nice that was???? I wear Birks 24/7, 365 days a year so my feet are in pretty bad shape but now? Hello beautiful(s)!!! LOL They are so pretty and sooooo SMOOOOOTH! Love that! I told hubby that I was going to start doing this once a month. You know, just a little "me" thing. He was totally supportive of that. I love that. I love him. He makes my heart melt. Sigh...Flirtysmile4

Okay, so enough about me... How about a little eye candy? I thought you might say yes. heehee


I made this cute card using my Miss O and Edgar owl stamps. I still can't believe Johanna made my drawings into owls. I sooooo LOVE THEM!! I keep trying to tell my hubby what a big deal it is. He just looks at me and smiles. Cracks me up. LOL

Hey, have you noticed that I have been practicing my water coloring skills? Still not up to Anna but darnit, I am trying! LOL That Anna girl has MAD coloring skills. Someday, I want to be just like her. She truly inspires me to try harder. I love that, love her. Big HUGS to Anna!!

Alrighty then, I am going to go get some laundry started so that I can multi task while stamping today. Love that. Hate wasted time. I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Saturday! See you all tomorrow!

Peace in the pasture Peeps!

Alright, I need to hurry & get to work so here is my last card for the week...


Alma sent us these sparkly paints to use with our cards this time. I can't begin to tell you how sparkly this is IRL!! I don't think this picture does it justice. Nope, not at all. Perhaps you would like to come over to my house and see it? Cause I made an extra. heehee

Okie dokie, I am off like a prom dress. Busy, busy, busy. Hope you all have a FANTASTIC day today and an even BETTER three day weekend! I know I will be a stamping fool this weekend. Got to love that!

And guess who the lucky gal is?????

One of my favorite blogs...

Good grief, Karrie, you can certainly make one feel guilty! HA! I always love free stamps!!



Viv, send me your snail mail addy and I will get this FAB set out to you ASAP!!! Congrats again!!

And THANK YOU everyone for playing! You all are such good sports, I wish I had a set for each and every one of you!!

Thanks again!


I am a little disappointed...

Out of 718 visitors the past two days only 68 people have begged for Kitty Treats aka BLOG CANDY!!! Are you serious? Apparently no one wants FREE STAMPS!! That's a shame. Tsk, tsk...maybe I should tell Alma NO to the blog candy next time. Just tell her that no one is really interested in FREE STAMPS, that they would much rather BUY THEM!! Yep, that's what I am going to tell her. So sad, so very, very will make her cry. It will. I am telling you. Do you really want to make Alma cry? I didn't think so.  You better CLICK HERE and  enter for some SUPER SWANKY FREE STAMPS!! You have until 8pm MST on THURSDAY. That is TOMORROW PEOPLE!! Get busy! Hurry now, what are you waiting for?? I am starting to lose my patience!!! LOL

For the rest of you little darlings that have already entered the give-a-way, I have a little EYE candy for you...


How FUN IS THAT??? Love it! Yeppers, I do, I do, I DO!!!

Well, I am sorry to do this... but I am outta here. I am beat and just want to lie down and watch a little boob tube if you know what I mean. I hope you all have a FAB evening and I will see you all tomorrow.

I wonder if YOU are the next lucky winner? I hope so! Bonne Chance!!!


ETA: See, I was so tired last night when I was writing this post that I put WEDNESDAY instead of THURSDAY for the drawing!! YIKES!! You still have all day today to enter. Hurry now, what are you waiting for???? Click HERE to enter!!!!

TCP Tuesday!!! - Stamp Challenge

I tried, I REALLY tried to participate in this challenge!! Katie was so nice, she even stamped me FOUR copies of this image and YET... I ruined EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM!! Can you believe that? What the heck man????? Apparently my stamping MOJO is completely OUT OF WHACK!!! URGHHHHHHH!!!

But don't let my IGNORANCE stop you from participating, after all...


So here's the plan... Katie is the hostess with the mostess this week. She is challenging everyone to use this uber cute, totally SWANKY stamp:


Do you have what it takes to make this even more SWANKY? Well let's see what you got!

Here are the deets Peeps:

1. Each week one of The Cat’s Pajamas DT members will host a challenge.

2. The challenges will vary {stamp, color, theme, sketch, etc.}

3. You will have until {this} Saturday night to complete the challenge.

4. Link your project on this week’s hostess’ challenge announcement. This week you will link your project HERE.

5. TCP stamps are not required, but of course, highly encouraged. {Unless it is a challenge calling for a specific stamp}

6. There will be one winner each month. They will be deemed that month’s Swankiest Stamper and get $25 in Cat’s Cash {money to spend on the TCP site!}.

7. When uploading to SCS, please use the keyword TCPTUES22 for this challenge.

8. Alma will post the entries from the week the following Monday on her blog.

9. The newly crowned Swanky Stamper will be announced on the First of the Month and have his/her winning entry posted on The Cat’s Pajamas website where he/she will reign for the entire month.

There you have it...go forth and be SWANKY!!!

Have fun Peeps!

Gnome down with Linda (LSN)!! - Final Episode (for now...LOL)

Got up this morning and I was INSPIRED! Hubby made me some coffee (thanks BABE!!) and away I went to the stamp room/office. Don't you love Saturday mornings like that? I do...sigh... :)

Anywho, today is the final episode of "Gnome Down" with Linda aka LSN. I have been having such a BLAST with these little guys from Odd Bird Planet. Must get more...yes, definitely must get more!! LOL In fact, I think I will head there right after I finish this post. Need to get the rest of the guys you know. :)

So here is my third card for our challenge, I went simple...


Love those little birds. If I would have thought a little more about the card before throwing it together I would have stamped him more to the left and then added a bird to the tree stump. Hmm, maybe I will have to remake this card tonight and do just that. Yeah, definitely. First I have to get some cleaning done, a little shopping and a few files completed for work. Sounds like a full day, huh? I know. Guess I will be burning the midnight oil tonight! LOL

Alright, enough with the chit chat, I better get my butt in gear. Hope you all have a FABULOUS Saturday and I will catch you all tomorrow with the start of a week full of Cat's Pajamas sneak peeks!!! YAHOO!!!! SOOOOOO lookin' forward to that! :0)

Peace out Peeps!
