This time I am casing Ilina Crouse because she is one talented girl too. I love how she stamps, her stamping is this clean, fresh, crisp look.
This card is one that I demoed for the Trilogy ladies today. They had not seen the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, and they thought it was so cute…I do too, and it makes this card quick and easy, using that Sweet Pea DSP isn't too shabby either. I love it in the Pretty in Pink but this would be fun to do in so many different colors, and using a different little focal point in each square.
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Basic Black, Whisper White Textured Paper, Sweet Pea DSP
Ink: Basic Black
Misc: Modern Label Punch, Scallop Square Punch, white gel pen, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die
This is a long note card, the finished size is 6 1/2" x 3 3/4"
Now shall we talk about American Idol. My Precious was handy as I used her for a notebook. Let's see if I can make any sense out of my typing.
Didi: Yeah, she went through last night and I missed it, I like her. Tonight there was, my spelling might be way off…sorry:
Jenellle: gee get a longer skirt will ya? I was afraid it was gonna be a Basic Instinct shot as she sat down in front of the judges. Whoops, they already made their choice, no need to tease them…
Tyler: the young square chin, Mick Jagger like guy…he has quite the cocky swagger, I am still not sure of him.
Lacy: she got picked over last year from the bluesy wacky tattooed girl, so I am soooo glad they put her through this year. She's good!
Crystal, the harmonica player with the dreadlocks, she is so talented and I love her voice and her back story, she has such a unique look, it makes me wonder what they will do with her, cause you know how as the season gets going they get "groomed"
Square pegs is gone…oh well
OK, so this one may make people mad, I can not believe they picked Haeley over Tori. I feel for Haeley as she has had a rough life, I think she is stinking adorable, and think she would be great in a movie or tv show, but as the next American Idol, she is so hard to understand, and maybe it is my deafness, but I think Tori was the better singer in my opinion.
Garcia: OMG! we are so happy in the Gibbs' household I think we were all crying with him as he was picked. I was like, if they pick the other guy I was gonna scream, especially the wrong choice (in our opinion) how they did the girls at the end.
But hey it is just the 24, there are lots more weeks to go to whittle them down to one, and as we get to know them better and hear them more who knows what we will think in a month. I do believe every year the talent gets better and better. I can hardly wait till next week.

Well I am off to go watch the Olympics, it is the snowboarding and I hope no one loses their britches, how those baggy pants don't get in the way is beyond me. Oh when we were going back and forth between AI and the Olympics we saw that one poor girl fall as she was coming into the end of the skiing, that had to of hurt, it looked like her leg was twisting, but she got up. I think I pulled a knee muscle just watching it. I think that speed skating stuff in the round rink is on tonight too, with that boy from Dancing with the Stars with the little goatee..yeah you know who I mean.
My Precious is also doing better about getting my emails to me, I think there are getting to be more towers or something. But she was vibrating and buzzing all day long today. I even used my GPS navigator today to get home, just to see if she knew where she lives, and she did good!
Have a great Thursday and thanks for stopping in!
