Happy Friday & Happy Labor Day Weekend (my US friends)!! Yay it's the weekend and a much needed one at that here in the crazy Dean household. Alexa has her 8th grade orientation this morning which she is super excited about for whatever reason--more to see her friends I think, hee hee! Riley did okay yesterday, he had a sick tummy because he was pretty nervous but was impressed with his teachers (for the moment, lol) and has friends in all of his classes. He's most worried about getting his locker open & finding his classrooms--which I think we've all experienced in our lifetimes. I still have dreams pretty often about not remembering my locker combination, not doing homework or wearing my pjs to school, hee hee (now I only wear my pjs in the house & my yard, lmbo!!)! Why do those things stay with us? Crazy I tell ya (or maybe it's just me that's crazy--you wouldn't wanna hear about the wacko movie-like dreams I have)--just ask my hubby cuz' I can scare the daylights out of him when I have one of my nightmares & he's a VERY HEAVY sleeper, so if I can wake him up & scare him that's sayin' something (giggle)! I always said if someone could plug a video camera up to my head at night I would win Oscars for the movies in my head :o) Just another one of "Suzanne's" oddities!! LOL
Alrighty, I gotta get my daughter ready to leave for the weekend--she's off with a friend & her family on a weekend boating trip. Still not sure what we're doing--I'd be happy just bummin' around the house but who knows!!
-Winner of the BOW EASY is Lynn of Millers-Ink Creative Endeavors!! Congrats Lynn! Email me your address so I can get it in the mail to ya ASAP!!
-If you didn't win it you can still buy your own right HERE!! And my how-to video is on my sidebar as well!
-Just wanted to let you all know that after a year & a half of blogging I finally realized how to comment back on the comments you leave me (NO LIE)! I'm so dumb sometimes I crack my ownself up, hee hee---so you will get random emails from me if you leave me a comment on my blog on occasion ok!! Can't believe I never figured it out before but oh well---learn something everyday!! LOL
So today I have a fun boy project for ya--we all struggle with making cute boy cards I know! This cutie pie stamp is "Matthew" from the Victoria Case for SCACD series available HERE at Susana's store! I think he's such a cutie-pie and so reminds me of my son at a younger age always with dinosaurs or something in his hands. Nowadays it's army men and they're all over my family room set up in real battles based on WWII and "mom" is not supposed to move them (hmmpphhh...more like step & trip on them, LOL)! I colored him with Copics and added some diamond glaze to his eyes and blocks! The fun dino dp is by My Mind's Eye (Abbey Road-Stomp) and then I wrapped the dp with some fibers I had in my stash & added a few buttons (always hard to accessorize boys cards w/o making them girlie ya know). The sentiment is from a Lizzie Anne set I have!
This is the first time I've ever made an easel card--but I saw one on SCS awhile back & saved the template knowing I would use it eventually! They're really easy & fun to make--and how much fun are these to receive? The template calls for an actual size of 4x4" but I changed it to 5x5" to make it larger (so dimensions would be 5x10 for the long folded pc and 5x5 for the actual card/image pc)! They have it so you put a brad in the middle of your card so it stands up & doesn't slide down but I used my sentiment for that instead--less invasive if you ask me. So this card folds down flat to 5x5"--love it! You can find the template right HERE!
Here's a closeup of this lil' cutie--dontcha' just love him!! I just wanna squish him, hee hee!
Alrighty, I'm outta here for the weekend! I hope you have a safe, happy & fun weekend ahead of you as well & I'll see ya back here Tuesday! (my house will be quiet again & kids snug in school, hee hee)
