Hi everyone! Hope you all are doing well out there where you are. I'm feeling much better today, not as fatigued as I'd been and only a little sore. I completed a few cards today and got 1 other project done (plus caught up on laundry & those other things that pile up while you're sick or away). I see that my blog counter is only a few away from 2,000 hits, so that means major **BLOG CANDY** to give away tomorrow. I'm not going to take a picture of the "loot" you can win, but will tell you that it's a few of my favorite things (some bellas, some bling, some cute dp, a cuttlebug somethin' & a couple of other great things)!! So don't forget to visit tomorrow afternoon to enter--you don't want to miss out!!

Today's cards are all about me!! I made these cards with myself in mind (how selfish, huh). The first card is another Stamping Bella card (I know, I know--there will be no more bellas tomorrow I promise). This is Ohsoprettybella and I think its adorable. Not that I'm stating that I'm "oh so pretty" but this is how I hope to feel in a few more days when I have my normal color back in my face and my mind all together - haha! I got a few sentiment stamps from Rosie's Roadshow that I just loved--she has the cutest sayings on her website, I wanted them all! This one in particular reminded me of how I feel most days--slap some color on your face and you can get it done, Suzanne. I never leave the house (mostly) w/o some lipgloss and some eyeliner or else I'd look like the walking dead--lol! Of course I included my favorite zebra print, the dp is from Glitz Designs, the brads are from Gina K and bella is colored with Copics (had to make her shirt zebra print too). I'll eventually give this card away, but for now she'll be on my favorite's board!

The second card is just a simple kitty, fun-laugh-out-loud kinda card. I had seen this stamp on my fellow blogger and bellaholics friend, Susan's blog--I immediately emailed her and asked where her friend had gotten it. The stamps are from Penny Black (mine I got from and this one's name is "Difficult" and I got another cat named "Cat-titude"--they make me laugh. If you know me well, you know I have 4 cats & 2 dogs. My one cat, Poncho is all gray (used to be fat, but he dieted & is now slim) and he's a grump. He really only likes me and hisses at anyone that tries to pick him up or tell him what to do--he's a real prima donna I tell ya, but I love him to death & this stamp is all him! I had to use this sentiment from Rosie's Roadshow for this card--My motto in life is to do it your way and be yourself while you're at it, life's too short to try and be like someone else!! So this card will also get posted on my board for me to get a good laugh at everytime I see it--hope it makes you laugh too!

Alrighty, I'm outta here to go heat up one of those yummy dinners my friends gave me. See ya tomorrow--don't forget about the blog candy~!
