Hissy Fits!!

Happy Monday my friends!  Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!  I am still hobbling around with my back but there is lots to do, so no down-time for me right now.  I figure life is too short to sit in pain and not contribute so we went to the movies Friday evening (I gritted thru the pain LOL as I know how to do) and saw “The Watch”…which was hilarious but FULL of crude humor, so if you don’t do crude than don’t see it.  But it was a nice silly movie that made me laugh.  I really want to see the new movie “Hope Springs” with Tommy Lee Jones & Meryl Streep…looks soooo good!  Then Saturday night James had to entertain clients in his box at Nationals Stadium so the kids and I + my “other” son (Riley’s BFF LOL) all tagged along. WHAT A GAME…OMGoodness it was one of the best baseball games of the season!  But between standing up and down my back was a-screechin’ so I was a hobblin' Nats fan for sure.  Then Riley high-fived me in the middle of the game…ok he’s 220 lbs and 6’3..he high-fived me SO HARD that he made one of my veins in my hand blow (ewww gross) and my hand is still swelled up badly.  Course its my coloring/writing/dominant hand so that’s just great—seriously the boy does not know his own strength!  I told him he may now only give me GENTLE fist bumps at games...we're gonna have to practice to make sure he knows what GENTLE means!!  I may take up the idea of wrapping myself completely in bubble wrap and yellow caution tape…think that might do it? hahahahaha probably not ‘eh?

On Sunday we just hung out with family watching the Nats play and the Olympics and had some yummy MD Blue Crabs…I do love me some Old Bay, vinegar and crab dippin…nothing better.  In my will (yes I will go morbid on ya for a few secs) I have said I want my organs donated, then cremate me, then have my ashes put in a firecracker (yes there is a company that does this) and shot off at the end of a huge party/crab feast…I wanna go out with a BANG and scatter in the wind KWIM!  Seriously I want everyone to celebrate the way I wanted to live and things I liked to do…do not waste tears at my party cuz I will come back in ghostly form and haunt!! LOL!  My hubby HATES that stipulation but he’s been warned if he doesn’t follow my wishes I will attach my ghostly self to him and make his life hell, hee hee…and he knows I’m not kiddin’!  As I always say Live Life Large, Have Fun, Enjoy Every Day and Love Hard..nothing better than when you apply that to each day Smile (even when in pain LOL)


Yummy MD Crabs & Double-Cherry Cokes for me!!

My son & his friend at the game—don’t they look thrilled with me hahaha!


-My newest online coloring class “All About Hair” is up for pre-registration now HERE at the CMC Classroom !  It will go live August 31st and we focus 100% on hair styles and colors!  This class I am also teaching in-person in Canada and in Connecticut…see for more details on that.


Hissy Fits?

Today I’m sharing a new card with another super-cute image from the NEWEST release at SCACD.  This uses an Elisabeth Bell for SCACD “The Storybook Collection” and this cutie is called “The Misunderstanding”…hahahahaha!  A polite way to call a childish temper tantrum in my words…my daughter HAD TONS OF THESE as a child.  Let’s just say she was very HIGH-spirited…heck she still is but she’s reigned most of the tantrum stuff in thank goodness LOL. During the early teen years we removed the door from her room so often I was an expert “Door Remover” hahahaha…she liked to slam it often so she lost it often!!  (I luv my kids ferociously but I play no games with them...I'm their parent first...and they know it) So when I saw this it just made me think of her when she was little.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

I used some great papers from “Family Ties“ (from First Edition) paper pad…I love the cheery mix of reds, yellows and blues!  The fun sentiment at the bottom is from an old Hannah Stamps set and I thought it was PERFECT for this card!  I distressed my papers and then added a mix of Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts flowers.  The swirls are from the Heartfelt Designs die “Bella Rose”…a fave of mine to use.

The image was colored with TouchTwin markers:  Y32,Y35,Y38 / PB71,PB70,PB76 / R11,R12,RP7 / BR92,BR93,BR97 / BR101,YR132.

That’s all for me today…I’m shuttling boys to & fro football practice, doing laundry, packing, making some release projects and prepping for classes up in Canada…oy.  Long day…have a goodie!
