Well, I got to stamp for the first time in a while yesterday. I got a new stamp on Friday ( Haunting by SU! ) and I love it. I've had an idea rolling around in my head for a while, but because I didn't have the ink colors or an image that was right, I couldn't do it. I finally got the image, and Tasha lent me the inks ( Thanks Tasha!!!! ). Anyway, this is a CASE from what I think it my all time favorite card. It's by a gal named Michelle Zindorf and she is just phenominal!! You can see here work here --> Michelle Zindorfs Blog This is the link for the tutorial for my card. It's not even a card yet, just something I was playing with.

It's a cold day, so I got the fire going and decided to play with the SCS Color Challenge and a First TIme Inked Challenge for my pal Terry. No, she doesn't have a challenge on her blog, but you can all visit her anyway.( http://krazysplace.blogspot.com/ ) Just don't tell her I sent you. LOL. O.k., I used Riding Hood Red, Basic Gray and Old Olive ( didn't have Always Artichoke ). The stamp is from SU! Peace To The World. It's a retired set, but I wanted to play with it anyway. I've had it about 2 months, and just cut the rubber recently. I used Fun Flock on the lions mane and the sheep. Hope you like it. :)

Well, I haven't found a Halloween Challenge yet ( if you now of one, let me know ), but this is a card I'm sending to some friends daughters. I used the Booglie Eyes set. I CASEd the idea from my pal Felicia ( http://stamphappyfelicia.blogspot.com/2008/08/boo-time-sc191.html ) and changed it just a bit. I used Dazzling Diamonds on the spider so he's all glittery. And I used some of Nicks' hairspray to make the glitter stick. LOL. Hope you like it. :)

Once again, I have to give Kristie and Terry credit. Not for the card, but for getting me card making while Courtney is sleeping. If I haven't told you ladies yet, THANKS!!
Here's my entry for the Card Sketch Saturday Challenge on http://sketchsaturday.blogspot.com/. This was my first submission to this site. I actually got a 2fer out of it because it's a stamp I've never inked. :) Hope y'all like it.

Well, thanks to a joint effort by my gal pals Terry and Kristie, I am, for the first time, entering a card in a challenge. This is the Cute Card Thursday Cat/Dog Challenge at ->http://cutecardthursday.blogspot.com/. This sort of throws off what I was going to do for a group card swap, but that's o.k. Hope you like it. :)

Ha ha!! S hasn't commented yet, so I guess I'm in the clear. Well, for now anyway.
So I've got a couple of pictures to share. I made some ATCs' for a swap. My color was the new Tangerine Tango. It took me a few days to convince myself that it was a good color. LOL. Anyway, these cards are REALLY orange, or Tangeringe if you prefer. I'm still not sure about them. I used, obviously, the new Tangerine Tango cardstock. The fruit is from the Tart and Tangy set by SU! I stamped it in the TT ink and sponged the same color around the edges. The paper is from the Tart and Tangy DP. The ribbon is some random ribbon I had around, adn the eyelet is again, a random one. Let me know what you think. :)

O.k., so I've abandoned my idea of getting into the stroller class. It just wasn't working for me how I wanted it to work. I was hoping for something much more structured and to be told what to do. What I got, while it wasn't bad, just isn't what I need. It was alot of, " This is what you'll be doing in the next hour, so go do it". People went at their own pace, which is good, but it made me uncomfortable. When you in a class doing something, the instructor can see everyone all in the same place and help almsot immediately. In this, all I was getting was " We need to work on your flexability" and " Don't roll your eyes at me". So, I give!! I've been into fitness long enough to know what I need to do. I just need to do it. I've been walking every day, but I've hit a plateau, so I need to up that. Add another walk or bust out the videos for afterwards. I also need to get my weights out. I have plenty of DVDs with weights, and my body reacts well to them, so I might as well do it, right? Looks like I'm going to be dragging my CIG To Fitness around for a while. :)
