My Pink Stamper's Saturday Challenge

Still doing well with my challenges. :) I've been able to craft quite a bit lately. I've been making time for it, and it's so relaxing for me. Well yesterday I was out and about doing things, and I looked at the posts on facebook. My Pink Stamper made a post about a Saturday challenge, and at first I thought I would not have any time to make something, but alas, I was able to work on one last night. 

My mom often wants me to make a card for a special occassion, so this year I thought I would make her several cards to put with her Christmas present. :) I was viewing other blogs, and I found this great card holder. :) You can view it over at Capadia Designs. Diane did a great picture tutorial. I could follow it easily. :) It's the perfect holder for cards for my mom for Christmas. :)

Something else very exciting this week. :) I used some of the cricut points that I had and got this super cute apron, and also the "Tie the Knot" shirt. The shirt is so fitting because I'm getting married next year and I just love the cartridge. I was so excited the day these came in the mail. :) I was also really excited because they both

World Card Making Day Challenge #1 with Creations with Christina

So here on World Card Making Day I started out by following a blog hop. :) I think I started out of order because I started at My Pink Stamper :). I still followed around to all the blogs. They did a blog hop called "Little Hop of Horrors" It was so much fun. I've never done a blog hop before, and I sure got to see a lot of new sites and get some great ideas.

I then looked at all the sites that I'm following. One of the sites I came across was Creations with Christina. I was already a follower of that site, but hadn't been there in awhile. I decided to participate in her Challenge #1 for the day :)  Here's what I came up with. The good thing is that I got to use the card as an invitation for a Halloween treat and craft party I'm having for the kids in our family.  :) The sentiment on the card came from one of the blogs that I found during the blog hop :) Madison over at Funky Cards had some really cute I used one.

I really wish that I would have had more time to participate in more challenges. I'll try and do some over the next couple of days if they are still open. :)

Diva Coffee Break Designs Color Challenge #196

This challenge is from Diva Coffee Break Designs. I've never tried a color challenge, but I did this week. It seemed kinda hard to match the colors, but I did my best. :) Two friends had birthday's this week, so I used the challenges to make them. I had better get going on some Halloween projects. :) It is October for goodness

MOJO 158

This is the first round card that I have ever made. :) I loved it!!! I really love how it turned out. I made it for a friend for her birthday. I'll definitely have to make more. :)

A couple blog hops this AM

Well now that I've got my house cleaned up, I'm showered, I've delivered some cough drops to my 15 year old, got a smoothie with some extra vitamins, I think I'm ready to sit down and craft a little. I have several projects to work on, but as I was getting started, I first had to view some blogs. One led me to another and I came across a new blog. :) It's Disney Dreamer Designs and she is also some blog candy. I'm very excited to check that site out some more. The other was from my bestie...and so I had to repost what she had. It sure made me laugh out loud, and I'm home that must mean it was Do you ever notice that it is not quite as fun to laugh alone?lol Anyways...keep reading and hopefully you'll smile too. :)

01. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.
02. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
03. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.
04. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

05. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
06. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.
07. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.
08. Bad decisions make good stories.
09. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.
10. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection ... again.
11. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of WORD and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.
12. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.
13. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.
14. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.
15. I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.
16. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.
17. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?
18. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!
19. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.
20. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey -but I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!
21. The first testicular guard, the "Cup," was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important.
Ladies ..... Quit Laughing.
