Gooo Colts!

How about them Colts? Wow, can't believe they're going to the Superbowl AGAIN! Does this mean I should buy some Colts gear? Nahhh... I can still be a fan w/o having to purchase outrageously priced paraphernalia right? I think so! :)

Here's a card I made for a SUDSOL (Simply Unique Demonstrators Sharing OnLine) Occasions Mini Swap. I cased my own card! Which my 8 for $10 gals made this month. I didn't think it would look better than Regal Rose w/Old Olive, but I was wrong. My card making customers will be making this in the month of April for Mother's Day. Hope you like it!

8 for $10 Card this Month

Hmmm... I must be losing my mind. I could have SWORN (and I don't like to do that with kids around!!) that I posted this card some time last week. Maybe it was just me loading & fixing the picture that made me THINK I posted it.

How sad to see that my mind is so fleeting. Makes me sad... I guess the good thing is I won't be sad for too long as I will forget lol.

Sorry for the bad lighting, I really need to find a good way to capture my cards in an AWESOME lighting that they deserve! I used the medallion stamp which I LOVE!! and the words are from a set that has retired and I have forgotten the name (Garden Greetings??).

See... maybe I should look into Ginko Biloba or something!

Scrappy Thank Yous...

Here are some Thank You cards I made with scraps of pieces for card its. The single card, I clicked on Auto Correct in Corel Photo Paint and it changed it to this .Well, the dotted piece is Chocolate Chip, not black or as dark as it is in the photo.

We sent these out with the Pizza cards friends ordered for L's fundraiser. That and a coupon for FREE breadsticks since we don't ever eat them. The kiddos had accrued 4 of them from the summer reading program for the past 2 years. Love to do random acts of kindness!

All ingredients are Stampin' Up! except for the chocolate brads.

GSC Time!!!

Saturday we delved headlong into Girl Scout Cookie time! It's L's first time selling and she's set the bar high with a goal of 200 boxes! She wants to earn the Miranda Panda bear. In past years, I avoid the GSC at ALL Costs! Don't need those calories baby because you KNOW they just call my name! That's not to say that Grandma comes over and drops a few boxes off, but I usually hid them then forget about them lol.

The Hubster looked at the earning sheet and commented that the Panda Bear is one expensive bear... I told him it would be a LOT MORE expensive if we didn't sell 200 boxes!! So he needed to take the signup sheet to work! He such a good man, he did and sold 38 boxes! Woo hoo for the Hubster.

Anyways, here a picture of an AWESOME cookie that I was blessed with receiving for Christmas. I received them AFTER Christmas, but that's not a problem at all. Can you believe this is actually edible? Is it NOT a work of art? And let me tell you how delicious they were, I ate 3 of them you know. Well, mostly 3, I shared a couple of bites with L but I knew G would NOT appreciate them at all lol. That's my excuse and I'm stickin' to it!

My friend, Bernadette, made them. The cookie is a cream cheese based sugar cookie. Don't even ask me how frosted & decorated the thing. Can you believe she's an engineer by trade? Don't you think she's missed her calling in the baking field? I do! She has us over for playdates whenever her hubby is out of town and then she uses me as a guinea pig for her gourmet dishes. What a hard life I lead let me tell you! I never enjoyed being a guinea pig as I do when I'm at her house! lol

Okay, I will have paper crafts for you to look at later this week!

Happy New Year!

Hi there, yes, I DO have a NEW RESOLUTION and that is to post more regularly! I was getting bogged down with Facebook games and wasting some SERIOUS time on it. So I made a resolution NOT to play Cafe anymore and I've stuck to it sooo far! Woo hoo for me.

Today is the start of Stampin' Up's Sale-A-Bration Event! Spend $50 and get any item in the brochure, or the ones listed on the back, for FREE! There's no limit and there are a lot of good choices this time around! It's my favorite by far because you have so many choices. There's a punch you can get for free and also some Designer Series Paper that is really colorful & bright.

Click HERE to go to my Demonstrator Website, click on SHOP now in the top, right hand corner. Then you can either click on Occasions or Specials (on the left hand side) to see the NEW Occasions Mini or the Sale-A-Bration catalog.

Did you see? Stampin' Up! now offers a clear mount option for their stamps! I am really excited about this. Same high quality rubber & foam stamps but now with a less expensive option. Not to mention the amount of space you save w/ the sets! Wowzers.

I received my first set last week and am using it to make one of my 8 for $10 cards this week as we speak. I can't wait to see what my girls think of them. I've already placed my order today so I will be getting more goodies next week. I can't wait!

What a variety eh? LOVE it!! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me!!
