This card really is a cute card. I used the cuttlebug Birthday embossing folder on the background, and I can't remember which stamps I used, but the flowers not only have the bling in the middle, but they have matching fun flock on them too. I used the glue pen, that is like an actual pen, and just traced them. The stitching around the center panel is faux stitched, since I can't sew to save my life. I'm not really sure what's been up with my photo's lately. I really do take good pictures. Hope you all have a great night.

I love this card

This card for whatever reason is one of my favs. It's simple yet is seems so elegant to me. I love the paper, I believe it is from the stella ruby 6x6 pad. The flower is up on dimensionals. I used Prisma colored pencils to color it, and went over it in layers. The color from the pencils lay down so easily and blend beautifully. I hope you enjoy it.

Already made up

Good thing I had some cards stashed because this is new job is whooping my butt! I'm hoping after I clean tonight that I might have the energy to get downstairs over the weekend. We'll see. After next week I get a 3 day weekend so that will help hopefully! I really miss my stamping, and my time to go to Archiever's! LOL Have a great weekend!

Good thing I made plenty of cards while my mom was here, or I wouldn't have anything to post. I swore I really had every intention of getting into my stamp room this weekend but it just never happened. I had a wonderful opportunity when hubby took all 3 of the kids to the last WNBA game on Sunday, but instead I sat and watched a movie and folded some laundry...........what's up with that? I can definitely tell you that this new job is kickin' my butt. I was really tired today when I finally got home, and by finally I mean after the serious down pour we had, I swear leaving school I thought it was going to turn into a tornado, and of course my new building is out in the middle of no where with a corn field right next to it. It rained so hard today that I had to pull over on the side of the road until it slowed a bit, but it really didn't get much better until I got all the way home. You know how when your driving and the weather is bad, how your body tenses all up and you hold on to the steering wheel with a death grip...........or at least I do. By the time I got home I was so exhausted, and I think it was just from that drive home.........LOL Ok hopefully as the week goes on it will get better. I'm off to bed..............and yes Mom if your reading this it is only 9:00 p.m.

First day of school

Jake 10 - 5th Payton 13 - 8th Josh 10 - 5th

It's been a crazy week, but believe it or not I have managed for the most part to keep up on everything, the only thing I have left to do today is clean the bathroom, and then I will mop the kitchen on Sunday I think. Of course laundry is ongoing so that doesn't count. Monday was the first day back to school for the kids, so hubby took pictures, because I have to leave before them now. Which let me tell you is a struggle. My first day with kids was Tuesday, and boy let me tell you it is crazy. But I have to admit Friday was the worst day, there are only 2 IA's in my room, me and my girlfriend and we just can't keep up with it all, another IA will be in on Monday but we're still going to need a 4th, and I'm trying to get my other girlfriend hired. Too many medically fragile kiddos, g-tubes, meds, getting them in and out of equipment, it's just way to much for just 2 of us. We have 5 kiddos in wheelchairs which we have to put in various equipment. I cried in the hallway yesterday but that is partly because I had such a rough night Thursday night.
Well I'm hoping to go downstairs and get some stamping done, I hope the motivation is there. Keep your fingers crossed for me, and I will be back later and post a card. Have a great Saturday!

Guess What!!!!!!

Today while I was doing my daily blog surfing courtesy of Google's reader, on Lauren's site I came across 2 new cool badges for bloggers. Lauren had a hard time deciding who she was going to send the badges onto so she decided to just tag her readers. So I tagged myself this morning. So now I'm challenging you my readers to do the same, and pass this around. It is cool to know that people really do read our blogs, and this is just one more way to show people that they really do matter. On a previous post on Lauren's blog make sure and read this post
Everything that Lauren says I totally believe is true. I know for some of us we try so hard to get published, get accepted on design teams, and always seem to fall just a little short, but I believe that someday, all the publishing that we as bloggers have done on our own will pay off! So keep blogging, keep your chins up and know that one day your dream will come true, you just have to keep plugging along.
I'm going to keep this post at the top for a bit, because I think it is really important for people to understand this!

Hmmm flowers

All of a sudden I feel like I should be making Fall cards, and it's still hovering around 100 here, Uggg! Tomorrow is back to school for the kids and myself, I can't believe that summer is done, and on top of that it is so darn hot. I hope the air is working in all the kids school, I know it's working in my school because it is a brand spankin' new building. It's beautiful! I actually don't have kids tomorrow, so my best friend and I will just be working on getting the room all done and set up for Tuesday. I'm so excited to meet the kids. I know 2 of them, but the other 5 I have never met. And get this all the kids are girls. I'm so not use to that. In preschool most of the kids were boys, but that isn't unusal, Autism runs higher in boys then in girls as far as the statistics go. The girls in our class have all sorts of disabilities. I just hope that I can keep up with them all! Guess I'll see soon enough! For whatever reason Blogger won't let me post my card in this post, so I'll post my card in the next post. It's pink and flowery (is that a word) LOL It took me a while to get this card done, I just don't think that I care for it. Oh well, my mojo is just coming and only time will tell when I can make a card that I really like!! Have a great evening and remember to enjoy your family!

Hmmm does this sound like me??

I took this fun little test to see what type of personality I have, and I think it rings fairly true. What do you guys think?

You Have A Type A- Personality

You are one of the most balanced people around
Motivated and focused, you are good at getting what you want
You rule at success, but success doesn't rule you.

When it's playtime, you really know how to kick back
Whether it's hanging out with friends or doing something you love!
You live life to the fullest - encorporating the best of both worlds

I'm hoping to work some more on another design team submission today or at least tonight. So hopefully I'll have a few things to post later. Have a great weekend, and if this is your last weekend before going back to school/work like me, live it up!! LOL

Ok obvioiusly the overhead flurescent light in my basement(craft room) is playing havoc on my pictures. This is actually carabbiean cool paper on Pink Passion. The flowers match perfect. I actually cased this card from someone's blog, and I apologize I don't remember who's. It was simple, and it is so cute. I'm hoping to be able to get downstairs and at least get my order put away and start trimming, so I can get a few things done before work starts............Then I will really struggle with getting some stamping time in. School/work comes first and then of course getting all the kids on a schedule. Talk about difficult........especially with Payton cheering, Jake's football practice in full swing and games starting in 2 week...........Oh how I dread the thought. Happy stamping everyone I hope you stamp 'til your hearts content.

Good evening..............I don't usually post in the evening, but I'm going to have to start. I went to work for a bit today, to help get the classroom set up, and I am beat. It wasn't even a full day, and no kids..........but I'm still ready for bed!! That's terrible. I don't even have enough energy to dig through my first BIG catalog order that got here today from SU! Now that is SAD! :( I actually think I like my card today. Simple yet it has that bling on it. I don't know what the deal is with my pictures lately, I set up a piece of posterboard with my Ott light, and a light with an all natural lightbulb, and it just isn't doing the trick. I'll have to keep trying. I hope you all stayed cool again today, it was a scorcher here again today. Happy stamping!

I found this on Allison's blog while I was surfing, and thought I would try it out, especially since it's been a pretty rough day. All I have wanted to do is crawl back into my bed and pull the covers over my head. A terribly cry day...........LOL

You Are 4: The Individualist

You are creative and dreamy... plus dramatic and unpredictable.

You're emotionally honest, real, and easily hurt.
Totally expressive, others always know exactly how you feel.

At Your Best: You are inspired, artistic, and introspective. You know what you're thinking, and you can communicate it well.

At Your Worst: You are melancholy, alienated, and withdrawn.

Your Fixation: Envy

Your Primary Fear: To have no identity

Your Primary Desire: To find yourself

Other Number 4's: Alanis Morisette, Johnny Depp, J.D. Salinger, Jim Morrison, and Anne Rice.

Well I was just playing around the other day, and end up using some of my new brilliance pads that I bougth. Dug out some of my newer clear stamps and this is what I came up with. Definitely not my style, but it will work for some of the people that I know. The picture makes the CS look sort of yellow and I'm not quite sure is actually one of the confetti's from SU. I'm working on a few things to submit for a design team............why I'm doing this I'm not quite sure, I think I just like the rejection........LOL Oh well. So after I submit my entries and I hear back or more Like I don't hear back, I will post all the items I was working on. Have a great day and if your weather is anything like ours, I certainly hope your inside staying cool.............Heat index of 109, YUCKY!

Ok Ladies I have looked and looked around and do you know that almost every blog that I read has been hit with this awesome badge......................We are all fantabulous Bloggers!! WoooHooo Thats great. While I browse more today as I always do, If I come across a blog that hasn't received this badge I will be sure to pass it along, and add their blogs to this post!

Wedding season is almost over

I'm so glad that the wedding season is almost over. I got 7 wedding invites this year alone. This card for the wedding that I went to on Saturday ended up being the perfect colors. The Bride is really down to earth and not into the really froofy stuff. This card even had the colors of her flowers, so I know she'll appreciate it. The wedding was really nice, and the one thing that I thought was really neat was that instead of the bride and groom having their backs to us when they took their vows, the Priest stood down on the floor while they stood atop the steps and faces us. It was very cool. After all the weddings that I have atteneded this year, all I can say is, as hubby and I are approaching our 15 year anniversary this Wednesday, items for weddings have certainly come along way, but the only 2 things I would change about my wedding is I think I might have chossen lighter colors, and I definitely wouldn't have had my hubbie's uncle pass out during the ceremony. LOL Have a great day, I'm hoping to make the most of this next week, as the kids go back to school on Monday and I go back to work. Happy Stamping!

Well here's a card.............I had a post written up.............and now who knows where it's at.................Oh well the way I've been feeling I really really don't care right about now..............I'm going to get the blogger award stuff lined up..............and sent out too. Hopefully today, maybe I'll go downstairs while I'm dong the boys laundry, who the heck knows if I will get anything stamped or not. School starts in a week in 1/2, so that means work will start again............YEEHAW, can you tell how excited I am. LOL I'm pretty sure I've lost my most of my readers, so if you can past my blog around to any of your friends, I would really appreciate it, that is if you feel that it is worthy. Thanks so much.
