…I hope you are enjoying the little baby picture contest, I am not even sure of everyone's picture. Some I definitely know who it is, I mean just go to their blog and see their current picture.
Make sure you go to that blog post here - cause if you guess who I am and put it in my comments, I will put all the correct entries in a bucket and pick a winner on April 5th at 12 noon AZ time, this will be a prize from me…it is totally separate from the prize that PCP is offering. Make sure you also go to the PCP forum (the link is in that post) and guess who all the babies are for an awesome prize.
Well I am gonna post my post early and turn off the lights in my studio and bum out on the couch tonight, I have been going constantly since we got home from Hawaii, I have tons to do, but today I am feeling run down and don't want to make myself sick.
I hosted a swap recently for the new Occasions Mini Catalog that started today…Yeah!! The best one yet! and this is the card I did for the swap, it was based on this card and I love the rubber boots…
Stamp Set: Scene in a Garden, Many Happy Returns
Paper: Pacific Point, Whisper White, Summer Sun, Kiwi Kiss, Good Morning Sunshine DSP
Ink: Jetblack Stazon, Summer Sun, Real Red, Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point, Going Gray
Misc: Lace Border punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, birds and blooms die for the scallop circle, white jumbo brad, pacific point striped ribbon
This would be a great card for a class, cause you are teaching coloring, but people are not coloring the whole card.
When I hear the words Good Morning Sunshine, it makes me think of the song…but it also reminds me of Jeff's Uncle Junior. He was a sweet sweet man. When Uncle Junior and Aunt Cleo (now happily back together in heaven…I just know they are) would come to AZ to visit, when Uncle Junior would get up in the morning he would say "Morning Glory, is it gonna Reindeer?" get it? Rain Dear? Anyway, I loved him, and when I was pregnant with Eric we went home to Illinois and we had a picnic and so many people came to see us, I mean I love that, don't you hate to go visit and people expect YOU to go to see them at each house, that is too hard, so Mum and Dad Gibbs had a picnic, even my Poppa and Granny came too from Canada. I think they wanted to see my big old belly, I didn't weigh 100 pounds wet when I got married…wow, never will say that again..ha! Anyway back to Uncle Junior, so anyway he said when we had our baby (cause we did not know what we were having) he said call him and tell him cigar or donut, and then he would know what we had and what to celebrate with. Unfortunately Uncle Junior died suddenly before Eric was born, and we never got to make that call. I was definitely thinking of him though when Eric was born.
If you want to see the rest of the swap cards, I have them in a photo album called Swaps, over on the right hand side…nope you're other right…there ya go…click on that and it will open up. I will do that from now on if you would like.
Hey look how cute this is…
We got this decor elements from Stampin' Up! when we were in Hawaii…I love it, I put it on the back of my SUV. It drives me nuts when I see it from the inside though cause I only see the one edge of it, and that anal person wants to make it so I read the whole thing from the inside even though it would be backwards, I shoulda moved it down more, I didnt want it higher cause I did not want my little wiper hitting it. I have one more just in case I can't live with it like this, or if this one gets messed up. I dont know what the old Arizona sun will do to it.
Every day we had a chance at winning I think it was 5 I-Pods a day, (I didnt win one…I dont know how I would have listened to it with hearing aids, but I would have plugged it into my stereo while I was driving around) and then you also got to spin the prize wheel to win a little goodie each day too, and I got lots of fun embellishments, brads, ribbons, eyelets, etc.
Well I am getting my butt off here for the night.
So I came back, I had to comment on American Idol….I was waiting for them to say April Fool when that Lady Gaga or something was singing…what the heck was that? She had a zipper over her eye and it should have been over her mouth…I don't know now adays this music…blech!….also I am glad Meghan is gone, she got weirder and weirder, she is a beautiful girl…but wacko wacko…what was that crowing thing? I even am starting to not like the red head, she is a mixture of Charro and Rosie Perez. All right now…I am getting off here…
Have an awesome Thursday and thanks for stopping in.

I thought the SAME thing about that singer tonight on Amn Idol!!! I think it means were getting old. Didn't they say she was a chart topper? Anyway, great to say a quick hi in Hawaii — love what you did with the Island Girl decal. Thanks for all you share!
Stephanie P says
Glad you're back, Di, take care and don't get sick, that would not be a nice ending to your lovely trip! I love your take on the Scene in a Garden stamp set, how very sweet!! That set is a must!
About Idol, I too am glad that Meghan is out, she is pretty but has a rather strange (unschooled?) singing voice. I do like Alyson (aka redhead) because she is an old, funky soul in that young body. How can one be 16 and sing like that???
Love your card!! I really like how you did all the rain boots and then coloured only 2 of them in.
I love the card. I have this set but haven't had a chance to play with it you – you have inspired me to get it out this weekend.
Yes.. Lady Ga Ga is a chart topper. "Different" is not the word for her. I liked Megan but agree it was time for her to go. My favourite is Kris Allen. He is consistent and a cutie.
Welcome home – we missed you and your blogs.

Yeah…that American idol stuff is crazy. And so was Meghan girl. I just caught the last 15 minutes of the show. What was up with Simon saying that meghan said she did not want to be there? I did not understand it.
She is weird and cannot sing. That last song was painful for my ears. 😉
But that other dude…is weird too!
Yeah, I glad Meaghan is gone too….when she told Simon she didnt care I was floored, then why even audition then…oh well… Love the card, I havent tried the spot lighting thing yet…gotta do that.
Cindy Lawrence says
Adorable card! Love the story behind it too. The "Island Girl" decal is too flippin' CUTE! Sounds like SU treated you very well on this trip! 🙂
As for AI…I never liked Meghan. I would fast-forward through most of her songs…painful. …and, yeah…Lada Gaga…WTH?! I think we've got another season for the guys. There are several that I like this year.
Tracy Altemose says
Hey Hey!! I saw a preview of the local news saying "Stay Tuned to see what Lady Gaga did to a backup singer during her AI performance." I didn't stay tuned cause I HAD enough!!! Weird Weird Weird!! Sorry I didn't warn you.
Hope your NOT getting sick! Take Care.

I'm guessing #11!!
Go Adam and Danny. I am also glad Meghan is gone. She is beautiful, but I am sorry she can't sing. Lady Gaga, what was that!!
Love that card. It is really cute.
I am so glad I wasn't the only one who was waiting for the April Fools on Lady Gaga. What a nut!
