Traveling Spots!

Happy Thursday to you all!  I am busy running around finishing laundry, get groceries and packing for my 4 day trip to Arizona this weekend to teach.  I'm so looking forward to it--it will be in the 90's--wahooo!  I have to leave the house in complete ship-shop-shape before I leave everytime, LOL---if ALL the laundry isn't done I could get a text from a manic teenager saying I "forgot to wash her fave jeans---whine--how could I --- whine!!" and stuff like that.  And then one from my son saying "you forgot to get my chips and dip at the store---whine----what am I gonna eat now? whine" LOL!  For real that is what happens soooooooooooo everytime I leave I make them add their top 3 requests to my grocery list, wash every darn last bit of clothing in the house and leave a few lists (for hubby, for kids, for dogs, lol)!  But no matter what I'll still get a text or call with someone wanting/needing something while I'm gone NO MATTER how many times I say "I'm across the country, in a different time zone, I cannot help you, dad's in charge, you are bugging me, I'm sleeping, what do you want?" LOL!  Yes I realize hubby can go to the store, but inevitably the cart will be FILLED with JUNK & not any food that might be good for ya.  And after several mishaps with shrunken laundry the hubster is NOT allowed near the washer/dryer unless under dire circumstances!  Soooo anywho, that makes Suzanne a very busy girl today along with finishing up class materials and packing my suitcase and TRYING to get to bed at a reasonable hour (ha ha ha) since I have to be up at 3:15 am to be at the airport at 4 am, yikes!  Can you say sleepy-time on the airplane for Suzanne, LOL--and I land at 10:30 am in AZ after guess what..........wait for it...................YEP ANOTHER layover in Denver.  I'm hoping to get the same gate and same Southwest dude so we can have another sing-a-long in the airport, hee hee.  Yes if you missed it last time I got about 30 people to sing along to John Denver tunes during our layover flight in Denver.  This time I want to sing Journey songs :) and don't you worry I will do it---so if you are in the area and you see singing people and crazy me leading them along---well then, you'll know you found me, LMBO!  Gotta have a good time in this life ya know?  We only get one shot so we might as well have as much fun as we can---that is my motto everyday!  Wanna dance--then break it out? Wanna sing--then sing?  Wanna laugh--laugh?  LOL---hang around me for awhile and I'll teach y'all about Good Times :)  By the time I'm off the plane I know at least 25 people's names/occupations/locations and we might have sung a tune or too !  If you are BORED you can always follow me on Facebook while I'm traveling---I update it regularly with my hijinks, hee hee!


-For those that participated in the Birthday Challenges over at the CMC Classroom, I will be picking all the winners later this afternoon and announcing them on the classroom and via a mass email to all members.  So make sure and check there tomorrow to see if you are a lucky winner! Thanks to everyone for the fun, support & participation.  It's gonna take me a loooooooong time to get thru all of them, lol!

-Get ready for some new Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Stamps heading your way on April 8th!  These are so cute you will smack yourself if you don't get some (lol)! Check out sneak peeks today---see HERE for info. and sneakie peekies by some of the DT!

-Interested in taking a Copic Class with me in person?  Check out my site which will be updated soon with more locations!  Next up is Stafford Springs, CT and there are still spots if you want to come (convenient to NYC area too)!

Seeing Spots Yet?

I've got a cute one for you today featuring a CC Designs "Swiss Pixies" stamp for the 7 Kids Challenge Blog!  This week our hostess Lisa Summerhays challenged us to "See Spots" LOL--in any form on our projects!  Well after hours on the laptop I REALLY am seeing spots now, hee hee!  Make sure to stop at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog to see all the DT cards, our Top 3 and the prize you can play for if you join in with us!

I just adore the CC Designs Swiss Pixies---so cute and fun to color---this one is called "Sweetheart Birgitta".  All of my papers are the newer, smaller My Mind's Eye "Fine & Dandy" and I love the candy colors and polka-dots in different sizes too!  The circle frame around the main image is by Marianne Designs along with the scrolls (my faves) and then I added some layered Primas and topped them with fun buttons.  I believe the pom-pom trim is Prima and I picked up a few colors at the super-fab Stamping & Scrapbooking Room store in Greensboro, NC (if you are nearby make sure to stop in for fabulous finds)!  The sentiment is "Signature Greetings" by PTI stamped in black ink.

Yes this cutie was colored with Copics: BG14,BG11,BG10/R22,R20/Colorless Blender/YR24,YR23,YR20/E11,E00.  Then I added stardust stickles to her dress, wings and around the circle frame for bling-ety-bling!

Hope that got you to think of some candy (hmmmmm jellybeans, chocolate peeps, etc., lol) and made ya smile!  I'll see ya back here tomorrow with a fun post too!


  1. An absolutely beautiful card Suzanne. Wish you lived here, so that I could attend one of your classes in person...LOL Enjoy your travels. So enjoy reading your posts, they are such fun and gives one more of an insight into the type of person you are. hugs Sharon

  2. OMG sing a longs at the Airport I would definitely love to see. How funny... usually when i go everyone is sitting there bored to death.

  3. Oh, gorgeous, gorgeous card! I love the CC Designs, so much fun to color!!
    Hope your trip goes well with just a few frantic texts!! LoL! It really just means they miss you, ya know!!

  4. That card is just so YUMMY! Have a wonderful time & stock up on the sunshine. Send some our way...we NEED IT!!! Our rivers are follding & there are passes closed due to avalanches. Yucky rain!!!

  5. Your coloring is awsome, your card is so gorgeous!!
    Hugs Yvonne

  6. LMBO...good thing you don't drink alcohol...can you imagine what your adventures would be like...

    The card is outstanding as usual...

    What is the usual size of your cards?

  7. LOL! You are so funny Suzanne! Maybe we shouldn't be together. I always travel with puppets and get them out to visit with the folks at the airport! I guess instead of visiting with the folks my puppets could sing! LOL!
    I love this card with all its bling. So pretty!
    Have fun in Arizona!
    Big Hugs!

  8. Why can't you plan a layover in Omaha NE? We aren't that far from Denver and I would come and sing with you.

  9. Having spent an evening with you, it is easy to understand you know not a stranger. So, to sing in an airport you say, sounds like a party in the almost air! So glad you are feeling back to normal and some new friends will see your talent. Have a great Phoenix trip!!

    Miss Pixie is sooo cute and she makes the card darling tool!

  10. Hi Suzanne- Luv this card- pixie is so cute- want to purchase a few of these themed stamps...anyone having a special? Great colors they match so wonderfully- how wonderfully fun, fun, do you choose papers and colors that match so well? THanks for sharing your awesome talent!!! Look forward to reading each evening!! Hugs- Judy

  11. Darling card with that cutie Birgitta (I have her too). Love it! And I'm dying for some jellybeans. LOL

    Have fun in Arizona with Charlene! Wish I could be there too but I'll be there in spirit.

    Happy Huggies ~

  12. What an adorable card, Suzanne. As usual, you came up with such a creative design and great color combo.

    Have a safe trip and enjoy your music. After Grey's tonight and taping the Mobbed show with the dancing, I'm going to have lots of music to hear..... Would love to see spontaneous music like that in the airport, how cool would that be????

  13. Ohhh so sweet card! Love this little girli, wonderful colors! Janine


I appreciate all your lovely comments and taking the time to stop by! hugz,Suzanne
