FLICKs for May - Have a Seat

FLICKs May 2011 007 copy

Blog surfing always has me checking out a few of my favorites and one is Kimberly Van Diepen, she does such beautiful work. Thanks Kimberly, you are amazing!

So I loved a card she did like this but she used Pool Party, and I have used all my Pool Party paper (as a Demonstrator we can only order so many during pre-order time).  I can't wait to get more on July 1. 

So I changed it to Blushing Bride.

FLICKs May 2011 010 copy
Stamp Set: Have a Seat, Day of Gratitude

Paper: Sahara Sand, Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla

Ink: Blushing Bride

Misc: Lace Ribbon Border punch, Very Vanilla Seam Binding, Vintage Trinkets

This is the card I did for my downline FLICKs for May.  You can read more about my FLICKs incentive on this post. 

Tonight I had the Masterchef show on and what a crazy mess, and I am so glad the person that went home is gone, he was such a spoiled brat, but the girl he was up against at the end, she was so mad and I was almost wishing she would go too, just the way she was acting was bad sportsmanship.  I have not watched all of them to know their back story, but it seems like he always blamed other people.

Well I am going to sign off for tonight, I have lots to do tomorrow.

Have an awesome Wednesday and thanks for stopping in.

What a Pain...

012 copy

...I mean pane.

Today while I was in town I ran a couple errands and also checked out a couple antique places, and I picked up this neat window pane.

013 copy
They had two but I liked this one cause it had that latch thing on the bottom.  I want to put DSP behind the glass and use it for a display.  Neat eh?

I wanted to show you the other card I did for the stamp club girls this month, and I copied it from Melissa Davies, notice I said copied and not tweak? Cause I totally copied her.  The card was beautiful Melissa, thanks for your inspiration.

011 copy
Stamp Set: Delicate Doilies

Paper: Crumb Cake, Whisper White Textured Paper

Ink: Whisper White craft

Misc: Organza ribbon, lace ribbon border punch

Don't you love it?  Now hold on until July 1, cause that is when you can order the punch and the stamp set. Fun!!

So the other day Jeff was out shaking the trees, they have these pods on them and he was trying to get a lot of them to fall off.  He noticed he had something on him and brought it in the house.

006 copy
It was a little inch worm. But he wouldn't inch for me, he would only do it for Jeff.

010 copy
Isn't that funny? I told Jeff he probably smelled more like the outdoors than I did.  Jeff let him inch around a bit and then he took him outside. I do believe this was the first inch worm I put on my blog. It's critter season so lets hope they don't get scarier.

Well I am gonna sign off for the night. Have an awesome Tuesday and thanks for stopping in.

Mimeograph Monday - Simply Soft

Today was so much fun.  My sweet girlfriend Melissa (hey honey!) and I have been trying to schedule  a double header movie day and to go see Bridesmaids and The Hangover Two together, and today finally was the day! We met early, bought the tickets for both movies at the same time cause how we had it figured we had 15 minutes once the one ended to get into see the second one, and we timed it perfect. We had time to potty in between and everything.

Both movies were awesome, but we both agreed that we laughed more with tears coming out of our eyes in Bridesmaids, and I so love Melissa McCarthy, she is hilarious on Mike and Molly and even funnier in this movie.  We were wondering about her wrist wrap in the film as nothing was mentioned about it, and it went from one hand to the other.  I also wish the movie had of been turned up a bit as I missed some of the jokes but I will definitely be buying this one.

We went to Pita Jungle for lunch and I had totally forgot I had been there with Ellie and Maureen till we walked inside.  Then we had a Groupon for some delicious gelato at Gelato Dolce Vita at a new place across from the theater, we will definitely be going back there.

I wanted to do a Mimeograph Monday card and since I don't have a ton of the new sets yet I picked one of the Hostess sets, and this is not my favorite card that I mimeographed but I love the set.  I would have prefered to do the other card but I don't have everything to do it yet...I say yet cause July 1 we can all order out of the new catalog!! Yeah!!! If you don't have your new catalog yet, and you don't have a regular Demonstrator let me know.  Catalogs are free with a $100.00 (before tax and shipping) order, or $6.00 to cover the shipping and handling.  Just let me know.

001 copy
Stamp Set: Simply Soft, Pennant Parade

Paper: Soft Suede, White Naturals, Baja Breeze DSP, Soft Suede DSP

Ink: Soft Suede, Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake, Old Olive

Misc: Vintage brads

I guessed at the recipe and I will admit I prefer the one out of the catalog better.

So have you ever watched the cooking shows or the 24 hour restaurant one and the judges wear a hearing aid.  I am wondering what they are being told in there. Like when they are on camera or what? The first time I ever noticed it was on Chef Robert, and I just assumed he was hard of hearing, but then I noticed it on all the judges on the 24 hour restaurant show. Just curious.

Well I am gonna say night night and head to bed, I gotta go get blood drawn in the morning so I have to fast, best do it early so I don't starve right?

Have an awesome Monday and thanks for stopping in.
