PAMC - Buttons, Brads or Bling

Hello bloggers, thanks for stopping by and visiting. So this week I'm hosting the PAMC challenge and my theme was Buttons, brads or bling. I'll be updating the PAMC blog and PCP. Here is my version:

I used my H2o's to color in the flower, i used a tiny button for the middle and some stickles on the pink corner edges. Hope you enjoy! I'm getting ready for school, I have to present my mid term and do a 5 minute blurb in front of the class ..... eek, i don't like getting up and talking in front of people.... have a good night!

Inchies Challenge

Hi all, man it's so funny how the weather is, yesterday it was like 74 degrees and today it's cold and probably going to rain tonight, thank goodness i did all my yard work earlier this week. OMG, last night I ordered pizza for my daughter Stefani and I and it took forever to get to the house. I was so excited when it finally got here, I ran my toe into the coffee table, oh man that hurt!
Anyways, I signed up for Sara's inchie challenge and I have to say it was a lot of fun. I have never done inchies before, I had "W" and "U", so I used a Watermelon and Umberella stamp that I had. the picture is kind of fuzzy, but I hope you enjoy!

One of Those Days!

UGH, you ever have one of those days that you want to crawl right back into bed?? that was me today. Stefani was watching TV and out of my hair (yea!!). I was watching Life Time Movies and then decided to finish up my Inchies and ATC's for Sara's challenges. I go into my scrap room and start cutting mt ATC's and I cut the wrong color paper. Blah! so I grab the right color and start cutting the paper and they are all the wrong size. UGH, I gave up, i was frustrated with myself.

So I then I broke out my sewing machine and had issues trying to thread the bobbin, after 30 min, finally, i was ready to start to sew my card stock to get an idea of what it will look like, so what happens? the thread gets caught and snaps the needle .... GRRRRRR

I decided to move on to my inchies and I was testing out the color I wanted to use, I used the Copic air brushing thingy and I'm practicing and practicing and then when i finally get the right color, I ran out of air ... blah! I was like "What the February is going on" so I can't finish my inchies. the store that I get them from is in Berkeley and they are closed on Mondays so I have to go on Tuesday!

Maybe tomorrow will be a better day! Night all, i'm going back to bed and watch more Life Time Movies.

So Thoughtful

Morning Blogger Friends! Gosh, it's so pretty outside today, the sun is out and it's not all that cold. Yesterday I didn't do anything, I laid on the couch and watched the Harry Potter Marathon.... I did manage to get up and cook some dinner.

But today is another day, I was up and did some laundry, cleaned the bathrooms and kitchen.... I've been a busy bee, although I do feel like I can go and take a nap.... I won't though, I have to go and get my Steffers from school and take her to get her hair done today! Anyways, here's a little card that I made. I'm not sure if you can see, but there are some pink and off white flowers on the tree, I had to hand glue them on and it was tough. I had glue all over the place! LOL ... anyways, hope you enjoy!

Happy Birthday

Wow, I was thinking that I have so many friends with Birthday's in March. I have to get with it to make sure that I get them all out in time .... here is one that I made today. You would think that with me being home I would have tons of time to craft, but NOOOOO. Most of my time is spent running my daughter around and looking for a job. I had no idea that looking for a job was a full time job that I'm not getting paid for .. hehehe

So far I managed to clean my house really good and got rid of a ton of things that needed to go bye-bye, tomorrow i'm going to clean the dreaded craft room. I bought some paper racks from one of the stores that went out of business so now I have a place to store my paper. I'm a cardstock FREAK! I'm always buying cardstock. I bought 2 12x12 racks that will hold a total of 36 colors of card stock, but that's not enough room, can you believe that?? i'll still have to store some paper in some 12x12 drawers.

Well it's getting late and I have been staying up way to late so i'm heading to bed! night all, hope you enjoy the card.
