Friday again??!

Funny Bird Gifts - T-Shirts, Art, Posters & Other Gift Ideas | Zazzle I am at Friday again!  Where does the time go.  Seems to just quietly creep right by me.

Life's been pretty noisy this past week.  I've been preparing for a 2 day crop & I will be the Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  I've made a easy Christmas card for the make and take using Night of Navy & Whisper White paper with the new Sleigh Ride Edgelits dies.  I totally cased it, but made it my own in small ways.

I had supervision while preparing my demo card.  My cat baby, Roma, set on my table watching me like...hmm, how do I say...well like only a cat can.  She was in her vulture pose, poised to strike at anything that suited her fancy.  Scissors, twine, pieces of paper and egad, a stamp pad.  I can picture my rug and hardwood right now with little paw prints in Blackberry Bliss and Blue Lagoon...hahaha.

I also made a really cute something-something special for each of the ladies who will be attending.
I'll give you more information on that later.  (No...Roma did not supervise while assembling these.) 

I have so much stuff to bring to this crop, that I've enlisted the help of my husband.  When I asked him if he wanted to go help me set up, he told me that he's not interested in scrapbooking with me LOL!  Bless his poor heart....I almost didn't want to hurt his feelings and tell him it wasn't an invitation to scrap with me, I just need the muscle to unload the car!  I will insist he wears steel toe shoes though.  Funny story and I will share it share with you soon.

While I was pulling papers, ribbons, inks and all the other myriad of paper crafting supplies I needed to take with me, I found several cards I made that I had totally forgotten about.   I'll post them this weekend, live from the crop. 

Until then...Have Fun & Stamp On!

Time Flies

Hi All,

     Can't believe it's been over a week since I posted.  I've been on vacation for the last week...well almost.  I did work on Monday!  Been bee-bopping around with my husband.  Antiquing, indulging, apple picking, fishing, gambling.  Whew...I'm tied just thinking about all the running we've been doing.  Not to mention the medical tests I've got to get done.  The Dr. found a lump under my arm so I was scheduled for a mammo & an ultrasound on Thursday.  Turns out the place I was supposed to go to (won't mention their name) cancelled the ultrasound over a week ago and never told me.  Now I'm scrambling to get it done and soon.  The suspense of what this lump is, well it's making me crazy.

     I've been trying to stay busy to keep my mind off things.  Here are a couple calendar pages I made for a swap.  I picked October as my month as Fall is my favorite time of year and Halloween is a favorite holiday of mine.

Blogging Friends Halloween

Welcome to the FIRST ever “Blogging Friends Blog Hop!”
Up until one month ago we were a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators located all across the U.S. and Canada whom had never met before. Well, actually, we still haven’t met yet (in person). . . But, through our common bond of Stampin’ Up! and a shared love of papercrafting we have created a fun new blog hop. Please join us on the 1st of every month to see what wonderful things we have created!

Hi All,

I am very excited to be part of the Blogging Friends Blog Hop! We are a passionate group of Stampin Up Independent Demonstrators located all over the USA and Canada. We are very much looking forward to sharing our love of stamping and paper crafting with you. You will learn more about each of us as you Blog Hop thru. I hope you will find many fresh and fun ideas to CASE and make your own!

Our first Hop theme is Halloween. This is quickly becoming my favorite holidays of the year to decorate...why I have almost as much Halloween decorations as I do Christmas decorations! I am fortunate that my husband likes to decorate with me, when I let him and only if he puts the stuff where I tell him...LOL.

This week I used the new Howl-o-Ween Treat Clear Mount Bundle to make this cute card. The eyes of the skeleton are they eyes of the owl from inside the card. I used the "Boo" from the Boo to You Framelits die set on the inside to cover the punched holes. The paper is the 2014-2015 In Color Backgrounds Designer paper. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.

Stop back in November 1st for our Thanksgiving theme Blog Hop.
Till then

Libby You are here!
