I got my cups all packed, my shoes by the door, I broke the tip off of one of my dark purple painted finger nails tonight, but I fixed that, (like anyone is gonna notice).  I got swaps all sorted so they can go to the PO.  I was a busy girl today.

So I am not going to post much since I want to go to bed a little earlier tonight, since I have to get up earlier in the morning.

This is the last card from MAMMa's class...what does that mean?  You got it right my friends, I'm gonna have to stamp something for you all tomorrow...unless I fall off my 4 feet tall platform "Eclipse" shoes and someone snags a picture of me as the paramedics carry me away....ha!

This card also used the White Magic technique I told you about yesterday, but I called it wrong it's Black Magic....oopsee. I guess that black magic had me under its spell and I was all mixed up.  I'll go and correct yesterdays post.

Of the Earth

Today was my last round of Technique Lover's Class. Now to finalize my script for my convention demo and get that marked off my to-do list.

I wanted to show you another card from MAMMa's class.  We are having a bit of a storm, I have had to re-boot my computer a couple times so I want to be quick.

Stamp Set: Of the Earth, Short & Sweet

Paper: Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Very Vanilla

Ink:Whisper White Craft, Basic Black

Misc: Vanilla Satin, watercolor pencils, word window punch, Lace border punch, white gel pen

This is a technique called White Magic, oops its called Black Magic, sorry about that.  You stamp the image with Whisper White craft, and heat set.  Then take your watercolor pencil and color over top, here we did just the stems. Very easy.  Afterwards we just added white gel pen dots to the top of the flowers, and I think it looks like either white Christmas lights, or a whole bunch of lightning bugs. Very cool.

OK, so like I said I better keep it short, will chat with you more tomorrow.

Have an awesome Tuesday and thanks for stopping in!

Happy Birthday Human

DSCN1961 copy

So Jeff got trimming trees today, and now they look so bare and sad.  They will fill back out, but right now it looks so odd.  When we bought our land years ago and built our house we asked the builder to please only remove the trees they needed to.  So many of the other neighbors had their property totally cleared and then they had to plant stuff. So we have mostly natural trees, other then the pines Jeff planted last year.  They are mesquite trees and they look great, but this year they are loaded with pods that really made them heavy, so they started to break and split.

This is another fun card we did at MAMMa's class the other night.  This set is so fun and I love this card, I love the spotlighting technique and this card is perfect. It reminds me of Toy Story, you know how Buzz has all those friends in the store that look like him and Woody and the gang think he is leaving them, but it is all the toys. This reminds me of an assembly line.  Ah! reminds me of the assembly line in the I Love Lucy episode with the chocolates...that was hilarious.

For You

So Mandy is laughing at me cause I told you where my ear ring was and I was like no I didn't.  I said it rhymes with....ha!

So this morning I weighed 128.8.  Cool that is going in the right direction.  Jeff smoked some ribs today, and I only ate a few plus, I have been really smart about what I put in my mouth lately.  I really do hate the scale though as my little sister Courtney (hey honey, say hi to J) says.  I think I will still weigh once a week, but I also have an old pair of jeans I will try on every week too just to see, cause I don't want to be measuring myself and stuff, that sounds too much like math.  I say, if I can pull the jeans up over my arse that is a great first step, getting them done up comes next...baby steps right?

I also want to give a "Big Shout Out", "High Five", and a  "You Go Girl" to one of my blog readers, Lee Patrick. Sending you a big hug!  Mandy has it for you.

This is one of the cards we did at MAMMa's the other night.  MAMMa said to make sure to say that she gets inspired all over the web, but does not remember where she sees cards, so if you see a card that looks like yours, I say thank you and MAMMa says thank you. I know I am the same way, I try to remember but it is hard so my suggestion to everyone is, if you post a card on the web anywhere, make sure you have a watermark on it that has your name, then it is easy to know where the card idea came from.

Ink: Jetblack Stazon, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Sahara Sand

So I finished the book Dear John today and I don't know, but I did not like it.  I guess there was not enough action or something, so I think I am gonna go back to my stack and pick something else.  I had borrowed the book from Rhonda, so I am glad I did and that I did not buy it.

That being said, I am headed to beddie bye.  I took my advil for my tooth ache that comes and goes and am gonna get a good nights sleep, I am a busy girl tomorrow.

Have a blessed Sunday and thanks for stopping in.

Well, well, well...

...no sense no feeling? Well the feeling came back once the circulation was restored...ouch!

I found my "lost" ear ring when I was getting ready for bed last night...um...you will never guess where it was and what it was hooked around...go ahead and try. Here's a hint, it rhymes with ripple.

So I called the dentist about my tooth and he said give it another week but if it does not better I need to go back in and might need a root canal...I think lets just yank em all out and start from scratch eh?

So no stamping today...well I did go to MAMMa's class tonight, so I have four days of shares for you starting tomorrow. The cards were so much fun, and the class was even better, some of the regulars could not make it, so we missed them, but MAMMa and Mandy and I had a blast!

But this kept me busy today...can you say Catalogs in the House!!!???!!!!

If you have reserved a catalog, it is ready to be picked up, or it will be going in the mail tomorrow, I am getting Jeff to help me, they are gonna weigh a ton, so I am glad he is here to help me.  Gotta get them to the PO by 9am, so I can be back for class at 10am. Can I do it?  Sure...
