Hello Mr. T

I had a bunch of scraps left from my ice cream cone card and I wanted to use them up before they got lost in a pile. I came up with this:

All the papers are My Minds Eye Good Day Sunshine Girl Kit.

I really like the colors in this line.

Erik is still out of work. The days are long and boring. I know I should be taking advantage of the extra hands and clean out drawers, closets and the garage, but I just can't seem to move.

The kids, well, Kat keeps asking for everything and anything. She wants me to download songs, she wants the ICarly something or other, she wants to go to Golf n Stuff, etc. etc. etc. I told her to start making a list of things she wants that we can consider after "daddy gets his new job". I think I'm going to count how many times I say that today. LOL!

I know it won't be much longer until he gets a job but I still can't help worrying.

Lucky Day

This week at Bitten by the Bug 2, the talented Maria asked us to use the ice cream cone from the Sweet Treats cart. I used the shaped card cut and came up with this:

I dug out an embossing folder for the cone and all the paper is MME Good Day Sunshine Girl Kit.
The little tin pin is from October Afternoon.

There is also a blog hop going on. Be sure to play along for your chance to win something fun. I don't have anything this month for the hop.

Erik is still jobless. He has been for a week now. If you get a chance, please send positive job finding thoughts our way.

and if you're looking for card making, stamping, scrappy supplies, please click on one of my links that goes to 2Peas. They give me a wee little bit for your purchase. Thank you. :)

Thanks for looking and for your nice comments. Have a great day!

Who gets Karin?

Last week (I can't believe it's been a week already) I posted my Karin card and offered to give it away. Now, if I can find it again on my messy desk, the randomly chosen winner is Cathy from Cathyplus5.

I'll send you an email, Cathy, to get your address. Thanks everyone for your kind comments.

Here are some layouts I've been working on. I'm entering these into the BasicGrey contest at 2 Peas.

I was just going to do one layout but once I started, I couldn't stop. It's just like ice cream or M & M's or avocados...what ever item I happen to be craving at the time.

This is just about all BasicGrey Out of Print.

There is a little teeny, tiny green and blue polka dot strip that is actually Fancy Pants.
Shhhh...don't tell.
That cute bike stamp is Hero Arts Joy Ride.

This is
BasicGrey Oxford.

I really hope I win this contest because I am now out of most of my Oxford collection alpha stickers.

The photo is from my Picture a Day project I've been working on all year. How does he use a pencil that is so tiny? and how much work does he really get done with that tiny pencil?? Hmmmm???

I will leave you with this picture....

Katrina is finally off her training wheels. After I snapped this picture and complimented her on her new skills, she just smiled and said, "I was born for this moment! I love riding my bike!"

Again, thanks for visiting and for your nice comments.

Creepy like Donna

The name the artist gave the stamp is "Karin". This is a stamp from

I'm giving away this card. If you like it, leave me a comment, sign up to be a follower and I'll pick a random winner in a week and send it to you. It's blank inside. You can write whatever your little heart desires on the inside.

Donna inspired me. I love her creepy cards. :D

All patterned paper is BasicGrey Out of Print.

I take all my photos of cards on the dining room table. Today it was covered in army dudes. I just worked around it.

Thanks for your nice comments. :D

Holy moly...check out all the new Tim Holtz stamps.

How would anyone decide which ones they want?

I like this one. I'd want to stamp it on a photo.This little birdie is cute, too.
No, wait...this is my favorite. The splattered butterfly.

Which one do you like?

Well, check it out. I made two layouts this week. Woah!

The first one is for the Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge. It was my turn again this week and I asked the ab-fab designers to use the starfish cut from the Life is a Beach cart.

All the papers and even the chipboard swirl is from Fancy Pants.

I used my Cricut to cut the hearts.
