A Twilight Filled Friday

Hi Everyone
Yes, I am a Twilight fan. I've been frantically trying to find time to read the series and I have just finished the last book. WOW - It was like a dead sprint trying to read that last book fast enough. What a ride. I know there is a lot of hype about this series but really you NEED to read the books. I get a smile on my face just thinking about the story.
I of course then was beyond thrilled when I saw the new stamp from My one stipulation was that I had to finish all the books before I let myself even cut out the stamp. That's how motivated I was to make time to get the books read.
I didn't do anything really special to this card other than add some fine sparkle glitter to his face and arms. You know because he sparkles!
Don't forget that Birthday party is tomorrow! It's going to be a ton of fun.
There are over 80 blog's included in the Birthday Hop. Check out for a list of the blogs.
Have a great Friday everyone.
Thanks so much for your visit.

It's Raining Frogs

Hi Everyone
It's rained so much this week that I'm finding all kinds of frogs in the yard and on my sidewalk. YICKS. I don't know why a frog would generate such a fright but they always take me off guard.
This is from . Can you just hear what he might have to say? I'm thinking that he's got another frog he's holding behind his back. You know those little boys.

Hi Everyone
Do you ever take a picture of one of your cards, get it uploaded to your post and then realize you've lost some of your bling? When I uploaded my card and began debating what to blog about I noticed I was missing some bling on the ribbon. Then I looked down and found it on my elbow. How in the world did that happen? Oh well, you get the idea.
This is from . She is celebrating someones good news. I think maybe she is celebrating the CHA this week and all the great products our favorite companies are releasing down in Orlando. Oh it would be so much fun to go to one of those some day.
Have a great day everyone. Thanks for stopping by.

Let's go for a little bike ride!

Hi Everyone
I have to remind myself that we call our loved ones our loved ones because well, even when they con us into doing something we still love them for it. My loved one Cody and I were cruising Wal-Mart the other day picking up some chlorine for the pool when we walked past the bikes. Well I've been saying I wanted a bike to ride around to get some exercise into my day's. Well don't you know when we talked past the bikes he jumped right on the opportunity. He had a bike pulled down and was encouraging me to get on it. Yeah...I thought to myself...there is no way in heck I'm getting on that thing. Well I did get on it and it was the right height and all that stuff. Then he said to take it for a ride around the isle. Oh my gosh I thought to myself...are you crazy.....I might see someone I know! I was so embarrassed just to be sitting in the darn thing and now he wants me to ride it around the isle. Good grief. Ok so the really bad part is that I did ride it around the isle but just like a little kid he was holding the bike up so I wouldn't fall off. You got it...can you picture it. Oh my what we do for our loved ones. Needless to say we didn't by the bike and I'm rethinking the whole riding a bike for exercise idea.
So of course was the perfect stamp to create a card to remember this interesting experience. LOL
I'm really fond of Hazel she is always up to some fun stuff. You can see more
Thanks for your visit today. Have a great Tuesday.

Horrrrrrray it's Monday

Hi Everyone
Well I can't say I'm as excited as Cheerleader Anya is on this Monday but it's good to start a new week.
I'm working on some stuff for my first ever craft fair and I decided to see if I could get a hold of some scrapbook paper from the high school that the craft fair is going to be held. I've used the small composition book you can get at the dollar store or Dollar General for super cheep. The are 4 1/5" x 3". Super quick. I think for the others I make I'll use my Cricut to cut out letter "D's" to put over the A.
I hope you are all having a great Monday. Thanks for your visit.

Where in the World

Hi Everyone
I've been MIA for a while. I've had some long day's at the hospital but I think everyone is on the mend and will be able to go home very soon. Thanks for sticking with me.
For today I made a quick card with a stamp from Sugar Nellie. They started carrying a line by the artist Diane Duda. This is called Believe. I found Diane on Etsy about six months ago so when Sugar Nellie announced on their blog a while back that they'd be working with Diane I was so thrilled.
My pic turned out to by Photoshop! I've used cardstock and DSP from SU along with the new InColor ribbon.
Thanks so much for your visit. Have a great Friday.

Sending Smiles

Hi Everyone
Just a quick post again today. I found some great DP from Mike's this weekend and I thought the Boy Nutshell stamps would be a great match with the DP.
This is Wallie from Nutshell's. He's sending all of you a big Smile. He's wearing his Varsity sweater too. I used a Gelly Roller in black to get the shine for the V. For the saying I've used three different punches from SU.
Have a great day everyone. Thanks for your visit.
