Outta This World

I'm not sure if I like this card or not. I like the colors and the layout is ok, but it's just not great. So I think I like it, but I don't love it. How does that sound? LOL. I hope you all are having a great Thursday and thanks for looking!

Pick a side

Since none of my teams (Colts, Giants, Vikings) made it to the play offs this year, my husband said I have to pick a team to win the Super Bowl. I decided to go with the Packers (to be read with a Sarah Palin accent). Even though I like the Steeler's, I'm going with Aaron Rodgers to lead Green Bay to a win. Ben (yes, we are on a first name basis) has already won two Super Bowls and holds the record for being the youngest quarterback in history to win a Super Bowl. So, I'd like to see the 27 year old Chico, CA native win this one (besides he has pretty eyes). That's not really the reason I just want to see if my husband is reading this. I think it will be a tough battle as the Steelers are a more seasoned team and Roethlisberger is the biggest quarterback in the NFL which makes him harder to sack. Then there's the whole passing team vs. a running team and a bunch of other stuff I'm still learning (if you read my previous post, you know I'm a slow learner). We'll see what happens on the 6th, but my pick is the Green Bay Packers!

Now that I've dazzled you with my extensive football knowledge, which side will you pick!

How Did I Miss This One?

My friend Stacy, (whose blog I visit often) always has such beautiful and perfectly aligned cards. Last week I asked her what her secret was. She told me she uses a Stampamajig and linked me to a utube video. Now I've seen this tool before and it's been around for years, but I always thought it was way too complicated to use. Then I watched the video. Can I just tell you I felt SO silly when I saw how easy it was to use? So I trotted over to Michael's with a half of coupon and got myself a Stampamajig. Holy cow this thing is awesome. How did I miss this one? I've been "eyeballing" it all these years! And to top it off, she isn't the first person to tell me about this tool. I know, you're all thinking "DUH!" But what can I say, I'm a slow learner! Anyway, I've been playing with this tool all day today and this is the best of the bunch, so I thought I'd share. Thanks Stacy!! You rock!

Happy Birthday

I have two things on my agenda for the rest of this week. One, make more Birthday cards, and two, add to my Operation Write Home stack. I have been so focused on holiday cards for the last several months my Birthday stash is nearly depleted.

This little cutie is from The Angel Company and I hope you enjoy it!

A Pastel Valentine

How about a new Valentines Day image for a change? I thought you guys might be kind of tired of the same old image. This card is much brighter in person and very pastel-ee. This photo doesn't do it justice. The image is from a TAC set called Lucy.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and thanks for looking.

More Valentines

I couldn't decide which card to post today, so I posted both of them. Are you getting the impression I love this stamp set? I especially love this particular image. She's so darn cute and so much fun to color!

I hope you are having a great week and remember, only two more weeks to take advantage of The Angel Company Stampa Palooza promotion!

From the Heart

I hope you all had a great weekend. Most of my time was spent watching football. Both my teams lost on Saturday, but at least the Packers beat the Eagles on Sunday. Who knew over the last few years I would become a football fan? I still don't understand some of the game rules, but I'm getting there. Any predictions on who will make it to the super bowl?

I'm slowly but surely getting some Valentines Day cards made. The From the Heart set from The Angle Company is perfect for this occasion and I'm having so much fun coloring these little girls. I've been trying to use up some of my scraps so this one is pieced together with what I have left of this My Minds Eye paper.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Christmas Thank You's

Hopefully by now all of our Christmas Thank You's have arrived at their destinations. It's a pretty simple layout and yes, I did jump on the twine train. I got a great deal just after Thanksgiving on a sampler pack from The Twinery. The image is from The Angel Company's fall supplement. Isn't he cute!! He's a gift with purchase stamp and you can get him too. They are still offering TRIPLE rewards from now until the end of January. If you place an order of $100 you get NINE gwp stamps, THREE level A hostess sets, and THREE half price items!! Don't have an extra $100 laying around? (me either) Why not get together with two of your friends to place an order? Then the 3 of you would each get 3 gwp, 1 level A set, and 1 half price item. Sounds pretty good doesn't it? Think about it and let me know if you would like to place an order. Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!

I heart you

I intended to post this earlier today, but my camera batteries were dead. Took too many Christmas photos that I'll scrapbook someday. Anyhow, so much for a slow work week. Got called in for tomorrow 'cause everybody is sick...OH goody now I can be around all the lingering germs. No matter. I can use the extra change to save up for my new laptop. If my calculations are correct I only have to work another 6 or 8 months and not spend a dime of my paycheck and I'll have enough money. OR I can sell six thousand dollars in TAC products.

I wanted you to have a fun Valentines Day card to look at until I can stamp again. You know, with work and all. I know you miss me terribly when I can't post. ;-)

Have a happy Wednesday and thanks for looking!

Maybe the sarcasm with subside by my next post...

Happy New Year!

And Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great Christmas and Happy New Year. It's hard to believe it's 2011 already. The holidays go by way too fast for me and the years seem to be flying by even faster.

I've had some computer issues lately which is why you haven't seen anything new in a while. My hard drive has been struggling for a while now and it finally went kaput! In my faithful MAC's defense, it is 10 years old, so I can't complain too much. Lucky for me I married an IT guy with spare parts! Now I have a new old hard drive and a working computer. I really need a new MAC with a fast processor. Maybe one of these days.

Here's a little Valentines Day card to get you thinking about the next card making occassion. So far this is the only one I've had time to do. The kids go back to school tomorrow and my work schedule is slow, so there's more to come.

Thanks for looking and don't forget The Angel Company is still celebrating Stampa Pa Looza until the end of January with TRIPLE rewards!
