Closet Treasures!

Hello there Friends & Happy Wednesday to ya!  Boy, what a day I had yesterday---woooheeee! LOL!  First I was woken at 3 am in the morning my one of my lovely cats (1 of 5 yes, lol) who decide that MY HAND under the covers was a FREAKING MOUSE and decided to pounce and clutch at it with her very long claws.  OwWwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!  Yep she got my right hand pointer finger and sliced it open badly--I was dripping blood everywhere (ewww I know) and poor hubby was very SLOW to respond---like slow as in barely waking even though I'm smacking him in his head, LMBO!  Then I ask him to get me a tissue so I can stop the bleeding---what does he do?  Goes in the bathroom and starts CUSSING about how we have no band-aids and he can't find the antiseptic.  I'm like "Hellllllllllloooooooooooo there---I JUST NEED A FRIGGIN' TISSUE before I bleed all over the bed!" LOL--geez men I tell ya! Finally after 3-5 mins of cussin & ranting he finally brought me...........................wait for it..................a COTTON BALL!  Yes a DRY cotton ball so the cotton could get all stuck in my finger and stuck in the blood---WHAT!  OMG by this point I was laughing and he finally brought me a band-aid---YEP a STAR WARS band-aid!  The only band-aid he could find, LOL!  So I got up and found the antiseptic and a normal band-aid right where I said they were!  Oh my poor hubby--he tries so hard to help but he's just slow and funny, hee hee!  And yes my finger is very SORE and its my main coloring & typing finger too---the bad cat.  She got a paw-dicure first thing yesterday afternoon that's for sure!  Then I had the grand idea to tackle my closet--yep I sure did!  It had taken on DISASTER LEVELS for sure.  I have my own walk in closet and basically you could not walk in anymore, LOL--it was HORRIBLE & a terrible mess.  But I knew it was a huge job and I just haven't had time lately to invest that time into it.  Well I had enough yesterday and yes it took me 7 hours to fully organize, clean and re-fold/hang everything but it is BEAUTIFUL NOW!  I love organization but when your time is limited it is very easy for things to get out of control.  Now to tackle my craftroom (ugh)---anyone want to come help me?  I have bins of stuff I need to get rid of that's for sure---its another whole day kinda job!  And it ain't happening this week, LOL--no way jose`! Maybe next week though, hee hee--it's driving me nutso!

Springtime Silhouettes--Snazzy Style!


Today the Gina K DT has another fun blog hop for you featuring the Stamp TV set "Springtime Silhouettes"!  I think this set is beyond fantastic---so many beautiful images & sentiments for many different uses!  When you buy this fabulous set NOT only do you get the stamp set but 24 sheets of luxury cardstock, brads, ribbon and exclusive pattern papers!  Fantastic deal and think of all the cards and projects you could make with those supplies and these stamps!  I love them and I decided to do a snazzy fashion styled card that would be perfect for a stylish friend!



I used some silvery cardstock and embossed it with a CB emboss. folder and then used some b&w scrap papers (Anna Griffin I believe) to dress it up a bit.  The image is matted with Spellbinders Oval and Scalloped Oval nestabilities.  I added a bow made with reversible May Arts ribbon & my Bow Easy, and then some small pearls to the fun sentiment.



I stamped the main image in black ink and then added some silver stickles to parts of the dress-form for extra sparkle.  These fabulous shoes were embossed in silver and then I added spots of black with my black Spica pen just for some more interest (hmmmmmm maybe I need to add these shoes to my closet too, hee hee---I have A LOT of shoes, shhhhhh don't tell hubby, lol)!

Ok, so now you need to hop around the DT blogs today to see what they made with this fantastic set!

  26. Gorgeous and Elegant card.

    So sorry to hear about the kitty scratch - Been there, done that, know how it feels!
    Your story though was hilarious. Loved the "cotton ball" portion a lot!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Those shoes are just too awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh your cards are very beautiful Suzanne and I really got a kick out of your cat story as I have 2 cats who think anything under a cover must be there for them to catch. I have to lock them in their room at night because if they "caught" my husband in the middle of the night- they'd be flying!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Suzanne -- you have totally rocked that card out of the park!
    So sorry to hear about your cat incident. My son's cat attacked my foot under the covers the other night and I have a nice, long slash mark to prove it. I can totally sympathize!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wow, the first word to come to mind is glamorous!

    I know what you mean about re-organizing. I just cleaned out my 4 year old's room. It took hours and hours!

  60. LOL - can so relate, Suzanne! We have one we've nicknamed "Crackhead Kitty" because in the middle of the night, she goes straight up in the air and does a horizontal 180°. I hope your finger is OK and heals quickly. Now, for your card - it's adorable - sexy! LOL I love that heel. The colors are wonderful! Take care of yourself and enjoy your closet!

    XO,
