Suck it up Land Gods

Today is a very important day
The Land Gods will end there reign of terror on the lands of my home
I have one thing I'd like to say to one particular Land God but I should not because its not nice
so I'm going to say it here and now...
right now...
Suck rotten eggs bitter wicked witch! It's time for the good witch Glenda to give your old warn out ugly last season shoes to Good Will.

Y'all want to guess what I'm giving up for Lent this year? Its a special word that is multi purpose and I'm really really wanting to exercise the use of today but I'm not going to let an old hag bring me down! No way, no how.

Excuse me while I go dust off my pink ball gown and polish favorite tiara

Oh happy day!

Happy Valentines Day! So for y'all I'll post some Valentines enjoy!

Hlsparkle ppr, mm b&w ppr, ribbonhl.

Old Stampin Up stamp with whale of a punch corners ( I think dw has this punch) mm ribbon and again that Archivers ppr.

Same card as yesterday the hearts are placed differently. Enjoy your day I'm off line for a day or three! Blessings A

Need a tickle oops pickle?

For some reason I find Pickle in a Pouch funny.....

All the red sparkle paper is from HL. The flowers they are so old it would be hard for me to guess. The plant kindness is an old Hedi Grace sticker, I think.

The patterned paper is mm and the card stock is something Archivers carries. The ribbon is mm as well the buckle is from a scrap shop called Red Letter Journals back in my home town. I'll have more in the morning! Blessings A


I'm going to be out a couple of days.

but here is the link to Deb. H new blog... and she is on the side bar as well


Sixteen Plum

Lisa Spoiler for Sixteen FYI........ I Did this page a while ago when? I'm not sure but I'm not having any time to scrap this week with dog sitting so just go with me. This depicts ending of Sixteen my favorite heroin is trapped in a tower (to bad she doesn't have long hair right?) and the Calvary is on the way. I've said it before or rather asked before what are Hobbits? No I have not seen Lord of the Rings, its on my Net Flicks list FYI. Anyway rounding back on subject....... I wanted to put Hobbit hats in with the trees because they help rescue Stephanie but I'm not sure if they wear hats? Yesterday I asked for help on the bushes today its Hobbits go figure. So do they??????? And how would y'all make Hobbit hats if they existed? My Sixteen companion page as you can see I hate to journal but the page is done. 17 is on the back burner! Sorry I couldn't resist! Blessings A

Plum ocean

Another Plum book page
The house (just because cc) needs bushes I really don't know what to do. (any ideals? I'm fresh out) I want flowering bushes or grassy bushes because this is a "by the sea" type of home.Scrappers block I guess.
You cant see it but the water is the clear shimmer paper (remember the snowmen hearts?) over plain blue paper. The dolphins and sun are Jo's and the sail boats believe it or not are Martha Stewart. Yes I did hear y'all gasp.

Deb has a new blog I'll post a link in the next few days but right now its 1 am, I need a shower, I just noticed I have forgot Melinda's birthday, and I did not congratulate her on the birth of her son on the blog. I think I'm missing another birthday somewhere...... Sorry I will grovel tomorrow after I trek through the fresh inches of snow.
Blessings A

baby sitting

Baby's can some times be hard to take care of....
Like today.
I'm taking care of Bo's two labs while she is in sunny AZ,
Did I tell you it's 4 here?
Don't even begin to think they are friendly with Supper Kitty.

After unfortunately grabbing a hand full of dog crap and getting it on my shirt, we came home to cat puke.

Isn't life fun!
I wish you all an animal fluid free day!

weekend bookmarks

I made these for Bo she is going on a trip and wanted some bookmarks fro her Bible study books. Ohhhh and the Sunshine ribbon, her yellow Lab's name is you guessed it "Sunshine"!
Blessings & safe travels

hearts of snowmen

I thought that this card was finished but something kept nagging me I just wasn't happy. What did it need? After some work I discovered it needed ribbon and hearts. After all it was going to be a Valentines Day card it needed to be Valentinesish in some way. The problem was if I placed a heart in the arms of the snowmen you couldn't see the cute clothing I spent so much time on. I thought I had grabbed a sheet of iridescent snowflake paper but it turned out to be see through. Cool it was just what I needed. I know the photog is not the best but its hard to capture the "shimmer".

Don't you just love his tummy showing?

Add in some old old old Doodle Bug sticker letters and you have a card.

Inside I will say something like "people have all kinds of hearts but mine belongs to you".

Later! A
