So my friend called me and asked me If I wanted to go to High Point and see Bill Cinton speak? Off we went thinging we wouldn't even get in. Well we got in and we were 4 rows away from the former president. I listened to his great speech and realize he is a pretty funny guy. Can you believe I even got to shake his hand and tell him I was a Massachusetts native. I have some pictures of him to post. I will edit them tomorrow and poat them. I have never gone to a political rally in my life but it was pretty exciting and Bill Clinton is quite a speaker. Thanks for stopping in today and I promise I will post a card tomorrow.

Happy Mail

I got home from work rather late tonight,feeling pretty tired. What is that box on my counter??? Oh Yeah I remember I ordered some of the new stamps from Gina K!! Pretty sweet deal too because you buy 3 and get s special stamp set free. I am so excited!!!!!!!!!! I just had to tell all of you. Now I need to get off here and cut the stamps and If I can do it quickly enough I will make a card with them and be back. If the card isn't on here tonight it will definately be posted tomorrow when I get home from work. Of course it could be a long day because we are having an audit and those audits take for ever. Hopefully we score a hundred, but I know one department we are vulnerable in. Geesh there has got to be a break here life in retail....What can you
Thanks for stopping in and checking on me.

dahlia fold flower

I like thise card even though I didn't take a great picture of it. I used wild Wasabi cs and some flowers for you dp. and the stamps are from su and they are called celebrate everything. I added a little sparkly brad to the center of the dahlia fold flower and a little bling around the word celebrate. and the ribbon is from one of Jody Morrow's many swaps. Thanks for stopping in and I hope you like the card.

I finally finished the folds on the Dahlia fold flower and let me tell you they have to be pretty close to perfect or the flower doesn't look right. I realized after like 4 days that I should do it on a hard surface instead of on my Tomorrow I will finish the card off and post it. I am quite pleased with the way the flower came out and I think You will be too. Oh yeah I got a job offer tonight that sounds very promising. If you know me I currently work about 70 hours a week as a salaried manager and I am not happy putting my crafting off until I am not to tired to do it. When My company closed 2 yrs ago I never thought getting a new job would mean putting what I love on the back burner.. Well I guess I kind of know its on the back burner but not to the extent this company has put it. I mean I am physically exhausted everyday when I get home from work. I go from my professional clothes to my pajama's everyday. My family hates that I spend no time with them and my friends have the same gripe, I used to stamp with my friend Cheryl a few times a week before and now I don't get to stamp with her at all. We use to ttry every technique there was and have so much fum. I hope this job pans out and gives me some sense of normalcy to my life again. Thanks for listening and checking in. Tomorrow you will see my finished card.

I am glad you asked!!

Several of You asked me where I got the template for the 3d flower and I realozed I should have posted it. So tonight I seached the blogs and I found it. I actually saw the flower on Melstampz blog and she posted the link to the flower. I hope its ok that I post the link to where I found it. Thanks for stopping in tonight, I am still working on that dahlia fold flower. It seems the folds have to be exact or the flower doesn't look right and I am using such a small circle I guess that makes it more difficult. But even the ones that weren't perfect look as soon as it is perfect I will post it.

Can I just say?????????????????

I am seeing all these new scorepals and I have to say I am a little upset. I bought the scorepal when it first came out and I have to say I love it, But I often wished it had more measurements for scoring. Now they have come out with one that has so many measurements. My Dh would probably kill me if I bought another. I mean Less then a yr ago I spent 39.95 for it and told him how much better my scoring would be and never dared to tell him that I wished for more score Don't get me wrong he really doesn't mind me spending the money on what I want but he always tells me not to be the first one on the bandwagon because they always enhance the original ones...Lol please don't tell him he was right. Ok thanks for listening to me, I couldn't help it after visiting several blogs and seeing the new and improved scorpal. Thanks for stopping in


Spring is here....I

So I was leaving for work today and noticed my hyacinths are blooming as is my daffodils and as I am heading down the road to the highway I notice the tree's are blooming. I swear they weren't bloomed yesterday so it was an overnight
Ok for my card I used Su vv cs and some stack packs form dcwv. I stamped the morning glory from su's morning soft stamps and tried my hand using my copic markers for the very first time. The sentiment is from su's for a friend stamp set and then I used stickles for the flowers stamen. I used ribbon from one of Jody Morrows many ribbon shares( You guys have to get in on one of her shares) and then I added some bling. I Don't like the card for some reason. Maybe the sentiment or the stickles but I thought I would post it anyway. Thanks for stopping in today and for my next endeavor I think I will try one of those dahlia fold flowers for a card.

oops forgot to add the picture

3d Flower

So I saw this flower in card inspired by maria some time ago and I have been wanting to make one. yesterday I went to a blog melstampz and she had a template so I decided to go for it. I used Su flowers for you cs and some ultra fine glitter I got from one of the swaps over at confessions of a ribbon addict. Only the center of the flower has glitter and it was called lipstick. I like the flower but have no idea what I will do with I do that all the time. I make things and don't know what to do with them. Oh well at least I am back to creating. Tomorrow I will have a card to post. I just have to decide which sentiment I want to use. Thanks for stopping in.

Glad to be creating
