Take a deep breath...

it's time to blow out the candles...

Aideepbreathbday

This funny little guy is from Art Impressions. You can purchase him by himself or in a set with the saying. I bought the set in case you are wondering. LOL

So... initially I stamped the image to practice coloring. And then I made mistake after mistake and started covering them up. (C'mon, we've all been there.) I will admit, the puff paint on the cake is covering up some red that ran out of the lines. LOL 

Any who, I hope you enjoy the card & your weekend!!

Bed ornament?

How am I supposed to make the bed? She won't get off and she keeps showing me her polka dots (belly). She is the laziest Bassett in the world. I think she would stay in bed all day if we let her. I bet she wishes she had a bell so she could ring for her meals. LOL Not going to fight it anymore. Messy bed it is. Enjoy! Karrie

Happy Day!

It's Monday!! Are you ready for work? Amanda from Rosie's Roadshow is. She looks so happy...it makes me want to poke her in the eye. LOL

JUST KIDDING!!!

Pretty excited about this week. My nephew is graduating High School so I am headed to the Bay Area for the weekend. Can't wait to see him and my family. Plus...as a bonus, my niece is coming home from Hungary so I will be able to see her as well. SO EXCITED!! 

Hoping you have an amazing week!

Enjoy!

Some days require a card & flowers....

My friend at work certainly needed/deserved them today. Ü 

Card&flowersI ran out to my back yard this morning & snipped her some flowers and then grabbed a card out of my stash for her. Madge from Art Impressions fit the bill. Here's a close up...

Aimadgeand the saying inside? Well, it almost made me fall out of my seat laughing when I stamped it in the card...

SayingI mean, really? How appropriate! LOL

Enjoy!!

Smile while you still have teeth...

I should have sent this card to my step-brother for his birthday. He's getting up there in years and well...I am sure he is going to start losing his teeth soon. LOLOLOL Sorry Robert, I couldn't help it. Love you! :) 

Found this FUN stamp on Ebay; it's from Art Impressions but it is only available at AC Moore. WHAN!! We don't have AC Moore here in AZ. DOUBLE WHAN! Didn't stop me from buying it though! heehee

Enjoy!

Welcome, Little One

I haven't stamped in FOREVER (too much going on, will fill you in later) but one of my co-workers asked if I could whip her up a baby shower card and I said..."sure, no problem." As soon as the words were out of my mouth I began to wonder if I had over committed myself. I know, you are thinking...how can this girl over commit herself with ONE CARD but for me? THE STRUGGLE IS REAL FOLKS!! LOL

It took me 2 hours to make it...crazy, I know, but I had to color the same image 3x because it wasn't "just right." By the time I finished the third image I was happy with it. I probably could have made some minor color changes but overall, after not stamping for 6+ months, I liked what I saw.

All the stamps I used are retired (sorry) from The Cat's Pajamas. It's fun to pull out the old stuff!! 

Hoping to play with my stamps again soon. Keep good thoughts for me!

Thanks for stopping by!

How many are too many?

Rr2many

When it comes to coffee, I don't think there is any such thing as "too many." Seriously. Just ask my Sis, she will tell you the same thing. LOL

I absolutely LOVE the color combo on this card. That patterened paper from My Mind's Eye is too cute! I also like the layout. Layering the paper & then using the die cut? Nice! I am pretty sure I saw an example somewhere on the internet & that's where I got the idea but it was a couple of months ago and I didn't write it down. (Sorry!). So whoever posted a card similar to this one? THANK YOU!! 

I have a busy weekend this weekend. Need to get the house cleaned PRONTO because the folks are showing up next Saturday. Yes, it will need to be cleaned again before they get here but this weekend I am doing all the nick picky stuff like; cleaning the ceiling fans, wiping down the picture frames, working on the baseboards...you know what I am talking about. All the stuff we women HATE TO CLEAN. Ugh! 

I also need to decorate the house but... I know that will be a solo job because getting Robert to help with that? Totally out of the question. It doesn't do any good to ask either. He is such a bump on the log. Sigh...I need to trade him in for a newer model. LOL

Alright, my day is wasting away. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. If you go out & brave the crowds? May the force be with you!

Bottoms Up!

Rrbottomsup

Cute butts are all the rage right now. You are probably thinking..."what? Is she out of her mind?" Nah, I mean, when you live with this...

Graciestush

The CUSTEST TUSH EVER...butts become all the rage. And duck bums from Rosie's Roadshow? They are definitely right up there with Gracie's tush! LOL

So, I have to tell you... I am suffering from the biggest case of lazies... EVER. I have things I want to do like stamping, crafting, laundry, cleaning the house, errands, etc but when it somes right down to it? I would rather take a nap. Zzzzz.....

Shoot, I still haven't gone grocery shopping for Thanksgiving. Who waits to the last minute like that? Me. Heck, I am not sure I even want to cook. No really, who wants to cook for two people and then go to work the next day? Not me. It seems silly. Cook all day, eat for 20 minutes and then have to clean up a HUGE mess? Just doesn't seem worth it in my eyes. I am tempted to either a. go out for dinner or b. order up some grub from somewhere and then just heat it up the day of. What do you think? What would you do?

Ohhhh, my dryer just buzzed. Guess I better go fold some laundry & put the next load in. I do love me some clean clothes!! :) 

Happy Sunday people!!!

Happy Birthday Fly By

Rrbdayflyby

You know how poop happens when birds are near? Well, I bought this funny saying from Rosie's Roadshow and knew I had to make this card. I just hope the recipient gets it. LOL

This morning Robert & I got up early and went to see the first showing of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. It was sooo good but I am irritated that they broke the movie into 2 parts. WHY, why do they do that? Oh that's right, just another way to make more money. :(

Anywho, would I recommend the movie? Yep. Definitely! :)

Alright, I think we are off to dinner. When I get back, I am headed back to the office and getting crafty.  YEAH!!!

Hope you have a wonderful evening!

Calgon took me away & almost didn't bring me back...

Just kidding. I have been busy, busy, busy, lazy and busy. Yep, when I DID have time to post to my blog, I didn't feel like it which is terrible because I have had this stack of cards sitting on my desk for 2+ months "dying" to get posted for all to see. It's shameful really. 

Rrcalgon

Bernard is busy soaking his weary bones in Calgon right now. I should have put some bubbles in there. THAT would have been AWESOME but alas, I didn't think of that until just now. Perhaps I should re-make the card with some "improvements." Lord knows my coloring would be better. I mean, I DID attend a Jennifer Dove Copic Retreat a couple of weekends ago and learned a TON and had a blast while there.

Time to jump in the shower & get the laundry started. Chores are calling. Plus, I am hoping to get a little crafty this afternoon. Yippee!!

Hope you all have a relaxing Sunday!!
