It's Wednesday, one day closer to Friday!lol You would think I had to go out to a real job or school everyday the way I look forward to the weekends, ha? I have my second workshop this evening, the hostess had a set of cards that I had made and decided she wanted to make a card that was in that pile for her workshop. I really didn't want to add that card to my sample cards because I wasn't really happy with how it turned out, but I did... Anyway, I since I already wasn't happy with it and knowing I will not take the "bling" that is on it for everyone at the workshop I decided to flip it a little and make it something I would be happy to demo. This is what I came up with... If I make another one later I will most definately add some "bling" to the center of the flowers, but I think people will like this one a the workshop, what do you think? Would you like to make this card? I also made another version because I will be demoing the bigshot and since my ovals are not from SU I wanted something that was, so the second version has the top note die used on it. :) I also made some little easy favors and door prizes, I will show those later when I come back to tell you how the workshop went.
Have a great day my friends...
I almost forgot... This is the little hostess gift I gave my hostess, I just filled it with some Hershey Kisses. It was also quick and easy and I was able to use my new scallop oval punch & stamps(Available April 1).
This stamp set is beautiful, there are two other flowers in the set along with the lovely quote by Mother Teresa. This set is only available to hostess who's order or workshop reaches $300 or more. If you would like more information please contact me today. :)
Next I just wanted to share another idea with you.... Have you thought about using your scrapbook papers for gift wrap? I used a plain piece of paper to wrap my box, gave it a strip of DP in the middle and cut out my stamped image (flower) and applied it with Glue Pop Dots. You could simply dress this package up a little more by adding some ribbon and a tag, etc... Thanks for stopping by and visiting today. I hope you will come back soon! :) Have a great day ...
Emily went to a birthday party today and this little bandaid tin was part of the gift. We put 5 flavored chapstick/lip glosses in it along with a $20 gift card.
I used the birthday cake from Fun & Fast Notes stamped on SU water color paper with Stazon black ink. I colored the stamped image with my color wonder water color crayons (If you haven't tried these, you need them!). The dp wrapped around the tin is SU too of course, as well as the cardstock layered behind the water color paper. I also used a little diamon stickles on the cake's "fluffy" layers. The ribbon is from Michaels - I do prefer my SU ribbon but I haven't had the $ to get all of the colors yet. :) This was a fun & fast little project... I love these bandaid tins!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
So, how much longer do you think Lindsey will continue to let her sisters dress her in one outift into another - all for their entertainment? I have a feeling she will continue to let them as long as they are willing to play with her and I'm sure they are creating a little clothes monster for me to deal with... Oh well, life with girls!

Here's my creation for today. I am trying to get some sample projects done before my two SU workshops coming up so I am going to try to do at least one project or card each day until then and hopefully a few over the weekend. I have had this little tin for a long time, I bought the template for the lid and cut out around the snap but was disappointed to find out it's for a bigger tin when I finaly decided to use it today.lol It's okay though, it all worked out. I used Stampin Up's rockabilly paper pack, just jawing stamp set, dazzling diamonds glitter, stazon stamp pad and the white pen, ribbon, red sticky tape & pop up glue dots. The extra bling is nail art "diamonds". I am going to try to make some note cards to go in the tin, if not note cards then I will put a few other goodies to match - maybe a bookmarker, mini composition book, some matching stickers, and of course candy!
Hopefully I will be back often in the next week. :) Have a great Thursday!
As for little Miss Emily well she has never had anything less than all "E"s and she even got some E+ this time around. She is the only kid in her class that is in the "advanced" reading and the teacher said she is more than ready for 3rd grade. Her teacher said she has taken three or four of Emily's stories and poems and entered them into the district wide writing contests too. She said Em sometimes gets to socializing in groups but she can't even saying anything negative about that because Emily still gets her work done and does it good! Again I AM SO stinkin PROUD!
Okay, so I can't leave the littlest girl out of these boasts, can I? Well, she's just barelyu 6 months old and she is pulling herself up and standing and has even tried to let go a couple times but caught herself... She's saying Mama, dada, and hi! She eats great too, she has a new love for avacados and ground up chicken... She also loves cheerios!
Okay, I'm done... If you got this far thanks for letting me share!
Have a fantastic day...

Today, Friday we had to take Lindsey back to the Childrens Hospital for her check up with the CF specialist and this time she had another sweat test as did Emily, next time Carley will have a sweat test. They said they wouldn't call if Em's test came back normal and so no news is good news in this case. We didn't hear from anyone so yay! I still don't get why they are sweat testing Lindsey again though. I asked the doctor said because she might come back with a positive sweat test and if it comes back "normal" again they probably wont do it again or they may decide to do it again a year from now or if she starts presenting symptoms of CF. Okay, so they have confirmed she has CF by our genetic testing. I feel confident they are who we want to have to turn to when we need them BUT I hate that they do things "just because something might change" and they can document it for their "statistics". I know they need the research and everything but this is exhausting. I don't want my family to just be a source to fill their data base with while they "learn" more about cf. It's emotionally and physically exhausting to me to do these appointments - but you can bet I will continue because I couldn't live with myself if lindsey started presenting any symptoms that I missed.
Anyway... Everything was good and I am so thankful for that! Thank you for your prayers and continued friendship and support. ;)
Just a little reminder, the Sale-A-Bration is still going on all the way through March. You can pick free stamp sets, ribbon bundle, or paper pack for every $50 spent - there is no limit to the free items you can get!

Adding a couple more cards... The one with the stars Carley and I made together. She started it and started to lose interest, then I added something to it and then she got another idea and pretty soon we had a completed card. ;) I think it turned out pretty cute...
Oh yeah, did I tell you what I got for Valentine's Day? I got the Big Shot! I actually had bought it for myself but then Cris' got his hours cut at work and so I was feeling more than guilty for buying it. But, he asked me if I wanted it for my birthday or for Valentine's Day... Is he the bestest husband in the world? I am nervous about the cut backs and what we will do if it lasts too long, but we will get through it one way or another.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting me today...
