Not a Good Tweak

So this morning when I took Toby out to go potty there was a little prairie dog/ground squirrel on the edge of the back porch so Toby ran over to chase him, and then OMG! that danged snake was right there. I think we disturbed his breakfast. So I quick grabbed Toby up and tweaked my back. Ouch.  The snake went behind the cupboard on the back porch and we went in the house. So I called Jeff and said "those cupboards need to be taken off the porch" and I explained why.  I didn't see the snake anymore, and I hope I don't, at least not on the porch.  I don't want him feeling comfortable coming up there.  I kept saying thank goodness he was not a rattler cause I think if it was a rattle snake it would have coiled up, rattled and maybe made Toby want to go see it instead of freaking him out so he came to me.  So that was my excitement for this's never a dull moment at the Gibbs' household and it seems when it is snake related Jeff is never home.

So my Designer Series Paper arrived today and I have started getting it cut for the shares, I really want to get it out before I leave for convention.  I still have a few left so if you are wanting one, let me know so I can send you the paypal link.

I had to get all my class stuff ready for this weekend and I did, so that is good.  

I do want to show you this card, that I love, love, love and I am going to be making some to swap at convention and I think this might be my thank you card for online orders for July...probably minus the vintage trinket so I can mail it. Thanks to everyone for orders placed so far this month, don't forget to keep track of your Country Dozen Rewards.

So did you see the oval and the dots embossed oval on the image?

That came from this embossing folder pack.

Embossing folder duo
It's amazing! You get these two shapes, and they are separate, and after I stamped my images I placed the oval embossed image where I wanted.  Tip: I put a piece of vellum over top of my image so ink did not transfer onto the folder. Then I ran it through my Big Shot and voila'. Don't you love it?

Well I am gonna head to bed so I can get up early and get back to cutting DSP, I hear some Icy Hot calling my name.

Have an awesome Friday and thanks for stopping in.
