Hi everyone! I'm posting late today I know. I went to lunch with my "lunch bunch" girlfriends today and when I got home I had the worst migraine (not from my friends--hehe). I think its sinus related again, so hopefully I'm not getting another sinus infection. Anyway it seriously dampened my creative mojo!! It was nice to get away today w/o children and have "big girl" talk--lol!! I love my kids, but I'm still not used to having them home all day--and my daughter is constantly following me around pronouncing that she's "bored"(arrrgggh)! I'm glad she has lots of ballet classes to keep her somewhat occupied and we're going to my mom's house for the weekend, so that will be fun! Can't wait to get my hands on some Maryland Blue Crabs--my absolute favorite food in the whole world. I grew up very close to the Chesapeake Bay and my mom has pictures of me cracking open a crab in my high chair--lol--I've loved em' my whole life I guess! I'll eat anything w/ crab in it, in fact today at lunch I had a soft-shell crab sandwich (yum-o)!
I also had a bit of good news this morning--I actually WON something (first time evah')!!! I won a new set from Verve Visual that I really, really wanted--I'm so excited about it. You can see my winning entry here (I had to name my favorite song lyric for a stamp) because the new stamp set has sentiments with popular song lyrics on it--LOVE IT--Can't wait to get it!! Check out their new sets when you get a chance.
Speaking of Verve Visual, my card for today features the Mojo Monday sketch from the owner Julee over on her blog. Loved the layout again this week. I hadn't used my dog stamp set from MFT yet (Friends Furever) and hadn't broken out my Pet Stack dp from DCWV--so I thought I'd combine the two for the sketch. My doggies aren't this big, but I just love the image--so cute--and ya know I love all furry creatures (except maybe rats-ugh)!! Pretty simple card to figure out--cs is from SU (except the lemon tart from PTI), brads are from Basic Grey, some stickles just on the collar and I colored with Copics. I also used my Fiskars "threading water" border punch--love that thing--to make the scalloped border and my cuttlebug "swiss dots" folder on the bg paper.
Alrighty, I have lots of blurfing to catch up on--lol! I'll see ya'll tomorrow!
