I was playing around with my blog, I mean heck it's a year old…ha! I still don't know a whole lot how to do things…I mean I had Twitter on here, I took it off and added Facebook only to realize that I can't use my phone to text to Facebook like I could Twitter, and then I thought who the heck wants to know what I am doing when I ain't at home anyway…unless I need to text…"Help the M&M's have me tied up in the backroom at the grocery store", then maybe I will wish I left Twitter on here…I think more people Facebook then Twitter and eventually I am sure my phone will do it, or I can always use the web access with my phone, but really is it necessary right now? Nope! It aint like I'm a world traveller!
I also changed the Books I Recommend, just in case anyone took my advice and read one or two, I thought you might like to see new ones.
I also wanted to let you know that my friend Dawn Griffith has done an awesome video tutorial on making a Diorama like the bowling one I showed the other day. Check the video out here. Thanks Dawn for doing such a great job, you are the video tutorial queen!!
So a while back I sent my BFF Tracy a little care package, and in it I surprised her with a couple stamped House Mouse images and told her it was a friendly little BFF Challenge, and if she choose to accept it, we would each do a card and then I would put them on my blog, I did mine the other day and Tracy emailed me hers last night. What do you think? I can't get over the similarities that we have in our cards…We are so much the same person it is freaky teaky. We did not talk or anything about the card, and look how they turned out…
In fact she actually put real sprinkles on the card. Too fun, too brilliant, too Tracy.
She cut and popped some of the donut, and then she even crystal effected the donut's frosting so the sprinkles would stick.
Then she even wet the back side of the mouse, rubbed it with her stylus on her foam pad so his belly stuck out, and then she put a dimensional back behind it so happy fingers don't go touchy feely and poking him back down.
Click on the pictures and they will go bigger, Tracy sent them and all cameras are different, so I hope they blow up good, I usually let my blog go live before I go to bed so I can check things, but I don't want to jump the gun on Dawn's tutorial so I have set it to go live at midnite.
This was so much fun, we will definitely be doing it again.
Here is my card, it does not have all the bells and whistles or sprinkles that Tracy's does, and it is another attempt at the Cindy Haffner look, but you can see the similarities in our embellishments, and our mouses are even both gray!!! Love it!

I have been so enjoying reading your comments to win the blog candy, you are making me feel so good, and I laugh too at some of your comments. Plus it looks like more tutorials is winning so far in what you want to see more of. Some of you have requested I do a watercoloring tutorial and there is actually one on here already, check here, this should help, but I can certainly do some more tips about it. I love your suggestions and keep them up. Make sure you comment on the actual blog candy post ok? That is where I will be picking the person (or random.org will), I had a couple post under the the little question box on the side and those won't count, I see that Krista (hey honey) re-did hers, and I have not noticed if Lenny redid theirs too.
So are you all watching American Idol? Are you scratching your head on some of the decisions? I am! I can't believe that they did not bring Danny's friend along… I think that they realize that he is already star material, and perhaps he will get a contract now. I have picked Danny from his audition but I totally missed that he was a widow. I think I just heard him sing and not the back story part. As for Tatiana, welcome to another season of Sanjina…can you spell abnoxious, ears bleeding screaming? Cause really if she would just act human and sing, she does not sound half bad, but I don't like her. Remember the old gong show? I was banging and clanging my gong but obviously no one was hearing it…except poor Jeff!!!!
Well I have a busy day today and some fun things to show you tomorrow, a little something for your "sweet tooth", that's all I'm gonna say…my lip is zipped…
Have a great Thursday and thanks for stopping in!
