Thanks to all who participated, the blog candy offer is now over, remember to check back, the winners will be announced by 11am pacific time on Jan 1, 2009.

What does that mean? Well it means that it's BLOG CANDY time..... I forgot to do something for my Blogoversary which was in August by the way (I'm a dork, I know), but then I was thinking that I would do something big. So that means 4 lucky people have a chance to win. The numbers 3, 5, 7 and 15 are my favorite numbers, so the 3rd, 5th, 7th and 15th person picked will get to win something. Since 7 is my ultimate favorite number, that person will win the grand prize (the Lg Pink tote below)

So here's what you have to do:

  • Tell me how you found my blog and if you have visited more than once.
  • If this is your first visit to my blog, “Welcome” hope you come back and visit.
  • Link my blog site to yours announcing my blog candy give away.

Remember this is a one time BIG blog candy give away (I'll do others, but they will be smaller, this one is big seeing that I missed my own Blogoversary). My blog candy give away ends on Dec 31, 2008 at 11:59pm (pacific time) and the winners will be announced by 11am (pacific time) on Jan 1, 2009. Good Luck!

Happy Sunday, a short post today, I'm not feeling to good today, I think it's the weather. I have had the worst headache. I thought if I ate the headache would go away, but no.... It still there.

Anyways back to my ladybug card, I used some pink and white cardstock, one of my cuttlebug folders, a ladybug stamp, flowers and a button. I had this cute little container that had some flowers in it, well when i tried to open it, the lid was glued shut. So I had to cut the flowers out. I was so sad, but I managed to get the flowers out. Enjoy! I'm heading to bed ... Good night

I used my prismia pencils, glitter and my shimmer piants.Well its getting late so I better go and head to bed. Hope you enjoy!

My Nephew Josh in "Josh and Drake's Christmas Special"

Ok, so my youngest nephew Josh was in the Josh and Drake's Christmas special, I DVR'd the show and when he's parts came up, I paused the TV and took a pic with my camera phone (LOL) here is my nephew, he was in several scenes - but this was the only good shot that I got of him ...hehehehe We are so proud of him ............ LOL, he's being arested by the cop ... he said it was loads of fun, he was also on a game show, did you know they plant people in the audience? I didn't know that until he said that they planted him in the second row. The things that make you go hummmmmm............. I can't wait to see the commercial he did with LaBron James ....

Christmas is Coming

I have HEAT! it took a bit but I got a new heater and it's nice and toasty in my house. I also got a new laptop and I'm having issues using the thing. It's all brand new to me. hehehe

So my youngest nephew Josh moved to LA about 6 months, he wanted to break into the movie business, low and behold, he got himself an agent the minute he got out there and he got a part in that show "Josh and Drake's Christmas Special", we are so proud of him. He loves it in LA, he has also done a few NIKE commercials with Labron James, so I'd say he's doing pretty good.

Onto my card, I did the napkin trick, I used some red cardstock, a napkin, I also added some bling to the tree as ornaments. Enjoy!

Christmas Wreath

Hello blogger friends, it's been a rough and tough last couple of weeks, but I know things will get better. Oh my goodness, it's so COLD, I had the PGand E man come to see what was wrong with my heater and the sad new is that I need to buy a new one ... GRRRR!!! It's been so cold, Stefani (my DD) and I have been bundling up to try and keep warm, it's hard to want to create things when you are freezing cold. I bought a portable heater from the Wal Mart, it said that it heats a room within minutes ........... LIES! it never heated my living room, so I took it to my bedroom ........ NOTHING, so I took it back and bought a Mocha from Starbucks! Hehehehe

So I'm forced to get a new heater and right before Christmas, but isn't that the way it works? anyways, I did manage to make this Christmas card. Enjoy ~

I used:
  • Red Cardstock
  • Designer Christmas Paper
  • Holly Wreath by Make an Impression
  • Copic Markers
  • Ribbon from Michaels
  • Crystal Stickles by Ranger

Penguin Shakin' Fun

Hello Bloggers, I'm back, thanks for all the nice comments, they are greatly appreciated, I'm still waiting for the PG and E man to come and heat my ole house up, it's freezing cold in here!

Isn't this little Penguin so cute? I saw this at one of my local Stamping stores and knew that I had to make it! It's the Sizzix Penguin die cut, I used with both Black and whilte card stock, some double sided thick tape and a little square of plastic to help keep all the beads in his belly. The back ground was made from the cuddle bug dots folder. I giggle when I see this little guy!


Hello my fellow bloggers, I haven't been a very good blogger this past week, I have been going to some trials and tribulations and haven't had time to blog. I know that I will come out of this situation a stronger person, you know what they say: "When one door closes another one opens".... I know that with God all is possible and he promised that he will never leave us nor forsake us!

I'll be posting a card tonight (I hope) - it's so cute! It's been so cold in my house, my heater isn't working, the PG and E man is coming to fix it tonight so hopfully we will have some heat later tonight, I think it was like 36 degrees in my house this morning .... burrrrr (you know it's bad when you can see your own breath) hehehehe
