A House of Cards

Tuesday, May 20, 2008

I'm a little bit late.

Sorry about that. I feel like I have been at the kids' school for most of the day. I am so ready for Thursday to be over with. Then I don't have to be anywhere. The last week of school is so hectic!
I want to thank you all for taking the time to comment. You are all wonderful! So, on to the winner. I played eeny meeny miny mo, and the lucky winner is............................


Congrats, Tabitha! Email me your address, and I will get a little goodie package out to you soon.

I will leave you with my take on sketch #51 over at the Sketch This blog. You should stop by and take a look at all the wonderful cards and layouts that the team has come up with. Such eye candy!

Hope you all have a great rest of the week!

Happy Friday!

I am going to try and enjoy my last kid-free Friday for quite a while. The last day of school for my kids is next Thursday, so that means no more quiet days for me. I enjoy my quiet time, but I am looking forward to them being home for the summer too. I just need to get some things planned, so that they are not too bored. Better start working on that! ;)

In case you haven't heard, Janelle over at Sketch This blog posted her 50th sketch this week. Woohoo! Yay Janelle! To celebrate, she is giving away a few prizes for participating in this week's sketch. Make sure to head over there and join in on the fun. If your going to be creating this weekend anyway, might as well use the sketch for a chance to win a prize, huh?!

Here is my take on sketch #50.

I don't make baby cards too often, but it is nice to have one around just in case. These My Mind's Eye papers are just PERFECT for one too.

Also, I told you in my last post I was going to post my mini album I made using Pink Paislee goodies. So here it is.

This album is by Magistical Memories. It is called Fancy Frame Layered Book. Magistical Memories has lots of fun, shaped albums in chipboard and acrylic. You should definitely check them out.

I just wanted to let you all know how much I appreciate you coming by and leaving me such sweet comments. So, because you are all so sweet, how about I send out a RAK? Just leave a comment here by Monday, May 19th, at 12am CST, and I will randomly choose a winner on Tuesday and send out something fun. Sound good? :)

I hope you all have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by!

I got the Pink Slip!

I was recently contacted by Rebecca from Pink Paislee and asked to be the guest designer for May. Of course I said YES!!! I just love all of these beautiful products, and they were so fun and easy to use. The first two projects use items from the Office Lingo Collection and some of their clear stamps. A fun little thank you card and a layout (yes, a layout!). This collection has my absolute favorite color combos. Can't get enough of it!

The next two use items from the Spring Fling Collection. Just a simple card and monogram notecard holder. Don't you just love the die-cut patterned paper?! It is awesome!

I have another project (a mini album) using the Office Lingo Collection to share, but I will post that later this week so I don't overload you all. Hope you all have a fantastic week. Thanks for stopping by!

I am so glad it's Friday. The kids will be home from school any minute. David will be home not too long after. I do like my quiet days home during the week, but I really look forward to when we are all home on the weekends. This weekend is a big soccer weekend. The kids have a game tonight and a game in the morning. That will be it for the season. We may also go see a professional womens' soccer match tomorrow night between the US and Australia. I have never been, so it should be fun.

Here are a couple of cards from the past two weeks that I made for the Sketch This blog (#47 and #48). The sketches works for both layouts and cards, and there are tons of wonderful examples by the Sketch This team. You should all come over and play. We would love to see what you do with them.

That is it for me. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
