I'm, sometimes bad

So I have no ideal when they will take this down but I ran into it this morning.
I think its like 18 carts are marked down to 15. something.......
So let me know if you've been bad, you can stand in the corner with me!
The thing about traveling is..... It makes you even more tired and grumpy than you normally are. Since I've been gone I'll give you more than usual for being patient with me! Betty Thanks for the crop and for putting up my grumpy self. News is about the same with Clipie, his is still third and they are going to bring more back (about 20 or so). When when is the question. Before second quarter next year so we are told then again we were told July, August, before November ect..... who knows... Later girls! Ps I made these at the crop so it might be a repeat for some of you.

does it feel like fall y'all?

This bottom card was salvaged from the scrap pile thanks to that incredible orange polka dot ribbon. I wanted eyelets with a green ribbon but my crop a diledidn't. Plus this is all specialty paper so it HAD to be salvaged. Enjoy
Love Ya

Crop n weekend

OK girls so I'm on the fast track of life I wont have much more for you this week. I'm looking forward to Saturday. See y'all this weekend. Love y'all. A

S B-day

Soldiers Birthday


Another sympathy card however it would also make a great wedding, engagement, anniversary card. I've made this and the green one yesterday for a friend who needed cards for her Grandmother and Aunt. Felted paper with MM ribbon, specialty green shimmer paper and a wal mart love phrase/embellishment.


Do you think its time to clean the scanner screen? Most all the little dots are from my scanner. OK so if I did this card again I'd have a green trim separating both blacks but I didn't have a match so I didn't. Believe it or not its a sympathy card made with felted paper and mirrored silver where the word is. I thought it was extremely different yet I really like it at the same time.

Scary kitty Boo!

Also a lost post:
WBKO who made me laugh early this week. I try to check on the news every few days or so and I found this. "Wild Hog Heards Spreading in Kentucky"
Also this Rattlesnake story surprised me, I had no ideal! I was aware of copper heads but rattlers?

The duck rescuer

Lost post 3/13/10
Have you ever rescued ducks?

Yesterday I was scrapbooking something caught my eye. Three young men about 14/15 came down from the eastward pond and they were taking plastic dogie poo bags and just throwing them everywhere. Then they went to the middle pond in front of our apartment. One young boy started skipping rocks or so I thought at first. Every rock came close to hitting a duck that was in the pond. Well that was it I was on my feet and out to the balcony where I watched the boy throw a few more rocks. The fifth rock was large and very scary so I decided it was time to say something since his violent behavior was escalating. I asked him what he was doing and he politely ignored me so I asked him again in a voice that the entire apartment complex could hear. The kid responded back that he was throwing rocks at the ducks! He admitted what he was doing. ARRRGGGGGGGGGGGGG!

He quickly moved on (without me asking him to stop) with his hockey wearing mask friend and co-h…

Mc Gillacutty

Another lost Post:

This was taken August 4 2010 at Rods birthday dinner. Its not entirely horrible, unfortunately i look like Boobs Mc Gillacutty though.


Ha this was a lost post I found in my drafts folder. I wonder what will the Gaylord look like when open again? Does anyone know when its going to open or has it?

In the Pink


no gold

OK so this looks much better in person than on scanner.
Why I have no ideal it might be because it doesn't who knows.
The gold edge also does not show up. Again why I don't know.

Black and White

Let me take a break from life drama
As we all know Saturday was 9/11 instead of remembering something sad lets do happy. My niece celebrated her third wedding anniversary this past week. So I needed to make a card, I'll not tell a lie, it was very hard to be inspired. After a spin over at Split Coast Stampers I found some inspiration.

This is how I stacked up the card;
white card base
black velvet matte
velum matte
specialty paper from Hl
black xyron back with embossed wedding clothes.
elements ribbon

If you do this card its easy to misplace the bride and groom wear upside down so that the card opens backwards. I would never so such a thing then tell you would I? Or would I?
Ha ha Yes I just might.

Eat the vinyl land gods

Fyi: I only acknowledge one God in my life, his name is Jesus. So don't take any of the land god comments wrong. Jesus is my one and only.

So the land gods speak part one:

So we received not one but two darling letters from our hoa
The first letter included violations that if not repaired by October 31st will result in "legal action". OK so to me the word LEGAL ACTION can only imply one thing = lawsuit. It would be a law suit over:
(exact words are )
"Solid waste and recycle waste receptacles must be kept from sight other than for scheduled collection. This has been clarified by the developer to be screened from view from three sides. Meaning it should be screened from view on the front and sides." End quote.
I Quote:
"All mechanical equipment, utilities (phone, cable, and electrical boxes), solid waste receptacles and services areas are to be screened from public view."End quote.

Yep they are that important. So the land gods of Sutherland Farms basically…

Hubby is Mr. Incredable

So yes he is still Mr Incredible.
I will later blog about the joys of home ownership. Then I will tell you about my lovely home owners association. I truly hope everyone in b.g. reads it. My hubby spent every waking moment working this weekend. I have apologized for our life circumstance (to him) a thousand times. I hate it when our life puts pressure on him. He has said very wonderful things to me this weekend, sometimes I wonder why he puts up with me.

This is what he did
Before it was bare and had more weeds than grass. Yep I admit it we plant in this same spot every year and nothing survives. I really have my doubts about this surviving but we will see. The soaker hose has been put to work in hopes it will help the green plant things live. I surrounded the plants shortly before lift off. In St. Louis we found that I'm extremely allergic to the grass with out the tails. I had welts that scared hubby so he helped rub me down with steroid cream then we followed it up benadryl cream…

Labor Day

Its the last week of summer friends.
I hope y'all have a good one.
As usual I'm up to my ears in "to do lists" and H.O.A. problems...
I will be back next Tuesday or Wednesday I've not abandoned the blog.
Relax, enjoy, and have some fun!

Crop at my house this Sunday!

The old man

Rain, rain, don't go away We need some cooler temperatures today.
I thought it was just the humidity yesterday but apparently it was 99 (according to the weather man) So I wasn't dreaming. hmmmm.Its pouring down and has been since 5:30 or so, its nice and cooling down the area. I don't enjoy rain all that much usually but its welcome none the less.
I'm on a mail mission today my fil has a birthday on the fourth so priority mail it is. I had a card made for him but I'm going to stat all over because his gift is a cd set about trains so a train b-day card he will get. I'll try to post it later today.
The cards currently posted are just playtime fun.
I'm hungry and I know the chicken soup in the frig is calling my name, I know quirky for this time of morning but its low in points and I've been a stickler all week so I'm sticking to it. Whatever works right? Later A
