Tiny little critter…tonight I moved a tarp on the back porch and found a new friend. I scooped him up and brought him in, I thought you would like to see him.
What ya think? Should I keep him? He seemed to like my paper cutter. His name is Ralphie.
Before I asked him for a discount on our car insurance I thought we better get to know each other a little better.
So I popped some popcorn, poured him a soda and we enjoyed…
…American Idol together, he told me to tell you that he thought that Paula needs to lay in the shade a bit more, and he felt bad that she forgot to get dressed and left her lounging pajamas on when Simon was all dressed up.
He totally was into Randy's 3 different fabric ensemble, plaids, stipes and dots.
Ralphie was sporting his own stripes and dots for the occassion.
Ralphie got a better view by sitting on my shoulders, he got a call from the little misses and had to hit the road, you should have seen his little car zip back under that tarp, it was adorable.
OK, I am just being a wacko. I did put him back under the tarp, cause I hope he is still there when my BFF cause to visit in 2 weeks!!!!!
As for my American Idol opinion I think Adam has won it hands down, he was better tonight then Kris and that Mad World song better be on his first album. I am so excited to see what kind of album he puts out, and I hope Kris puts out a country album…Keith Urban-ish!
So I played today with some of the TLC (Technique Lover Class) projects.
This is one technique that I want to do, obviously these will be made into cards, but I love these colors. I am not sure on the Bloomin' Beautiful one, I think I want to cut out the flowers and just do the pot on plain paper stamped in black, so the flowers stand out more,and pop them. Class attendees will just make one card using this technique, I am just playing around right now, but they are so pretty, it almost looks like stained glass.
Oh my gosh so we found out that as Demonstrators we will be able to get the brand new catalog with our first Demonstrator order that we place on June 1, I will be 2 daying my order so I will have it in my hands on June 3rd. My BFF and I will be looking at it together, it will be like our own personal little convention. I almost peed. If you want to get the catalog that early too, now is the time to sign up to become a Demonstrator, I would love to have you join my Di's Country INKers team, and you can sign up for $75.00 right now. You will also save 30% on your first order (and that order will have your brand new catalog in it) I would love to talk to you about it, and answer any questions you may have. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can call you. You can sign up online through my website, holler at me to get the code to get in. Ask about my sign on gift when you join my Stampin' Up! family.
I added a new subscribe to my blog thingie, it is over to the left called RSS, if you click that it will take you to another page and subscribe through what you choose, but I like Googlereader. Let me know if you have any questions.
Have a great Wednesday everyone, and thanks for stopping in!

Haha…you are tooo flippin' FUNNY, gf! Hope you got a deal on your car insurance before he ran off. 😉 The flowers are GOOOORRRGEOUS, dahling!!! I love, love, love that awesome technique! Smooches! ~C
You're a LOON!!!!! But that's why I love you so much…………..Can you bring me one when you come to visit again!!!!
Love you SO much Baby!!!!!
Oh yeah, the flowers are purty too!
You crack me up! I remember being totally fearless as a child and picking up lizards ALL the time, but now…I'm pretty sure they could swallow you whole!! You are lucky to be alive!!! With him on your shoulder, he could've started with your cute little head and ended with your toes!!
I love the flowers! I would love for a tutorial on how to make those! They are beautiful!

Eeewww….that gives me the creeps. (not your work) the little critter. We have those, but a little smaller around our doors, and they tried to come in. YIKES! I try not to freak out too much. but I yell for help! :0

Okay Di, You worried about fly poop on the dates but you didn't worry about the lizard peeing on you! Amazing! On the other hand that's very brave to be handling the little darling at all. I'm very impressed. However if you were here with my kitties you would have become the scene of a major massacre as they would have gone right through you to chomp them some lizard!!
I gave up picking up stray lizards awhile ago cause I kept picking up the ones with toxins in their skin. really bad scene. (we won't mention the darting down my low necklines incidents – shudder…) I'm glad you have the non toxic variety in your yard 😀
I love that you used the reinker technique with the Bloomin Beautiful image. Never would have occurred to me. I think it turned out beautifully and would use it just the way it is. Though if you did a second section of the flowers you could cut some up and pop them up for added dimension.
Thanks for the idea. Now I'm going to have to try this idea also….
Hugs and blessings and now I'm off to wash my hands after watching the lizard pics. Hee,hee,hee. – Jean
