Here we are again...

Monday morning. Sigh...

You Peeps had me cracking up about your craziest things yesterday. I saw a theme though...uprooting yourselves & starting over. Did I ever tell you that I did that too? Oh yes, my office closed down in Reno, NV in December, my husband and I got married, relocated to AZ and purchased a house all in one month. If he and I can make it through that kind of stress, we can make it through ANYTHING!!

I am happy to say that Robert and I have been married 9 years now. We have had our ups and downs but we, as a couple, always prevail. He is my best friend and I love him, no matter what. No matter what little quirks he has. Lord knows I have my own. :)

Bottom line, I am thankful for him. I am thankful that the Lord led me to him (yes, I truly believe he did). I am thankful he is my partner and that we have a wonderful life together. Nuff said. (Love you Babe! xoxox)

Okay, so, back to stamping and card making. Don't want you all to think I am getting soft on you. heehee

Here is my cheery card to brighten your Monday...


You know how I was saying that I am notoriously late with sending out birthday cards? Well, I have decided that I am just going to start making "belated" birthday cards. Yep, not even going to mess around with the regular ones anymore. LOL On the inside of this card it says..."my life is like a circus." So fitting for me. :)

Anywho, I better get going, work is calling me. I will be back later this even to pick the winner for Bubb & Bitty.  If you haven't already entered the drawing you have until 6pm MST. Okay, so it may be a little later than that but don't delay, get your entry in NOW!!!

Peace in the Pasture Peeps!

For You...

I have a super sweet & simple card for you today as well as another give-a-way, YEAH!!!

First things first, here is my card...


I actually took the Bird stand left, flipped it upside down and made flowers with it. I then paper pieced the flowers. How FUN is that?? I absolutely love it when I can think of different ways of using my stamps. It makes it seem like you have double the collection! LOL

And for my latte loot/give-a-way/blog love/blog candy...blah,blah,blah...LOL

The next two, and final two, unmounted stamps I am giving away are John 12291840659421673922525 and Willy 1229191206165-375387909 .

These two guys are wild & crazy. So wild & crazy that they are on the fast track outta here. LOL Want to know what you have to do to get these little boys? Leave me a comment below telling me what the wildest/craziest thing you have ever done. I will pick a winner on TUESDAY at 7pm MST. Sound like a plan? Excellent!

Until then? Peace in the pasture Peeps!!
