Totally Tubular?!!

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Hope your week is going swell for you so far!  I am enjoying spending time with my family and relaxing a bit.  Yesterday I went to the mall with my cousin and whoo-eee I’m glad we don’t live close to each other cuz’ he is an ENABLER (yep worse than me hee hee).  We have always been great friends since we were very small---more so than any of my other cousins so its always nice to hang out with him.  He took me to the Galleria in Buffalo and we did a “wee” bit of shopping LOL and then did some damage eating at PF Changs Smile  We both opened our Fortune Cookies and I must SAY that both of our fortunes were really good and perfect for each of us!

Mine said "Success is about the journey, not the destination" -- I love that! I put it in my wallet for good vibes & luck!

I DID buy the kids a few things so I didn’t just shop for myself---but I will say that some Calvin Klein boots happened to come home with me along with a few other goodies!  And did I tell you how much I lovvvvvvvvvvve Tim Horton’s? Oh my I wish we had them at home—they have better Boston Crème donuts than Dunkin’ Donuts (you know I am a donut FREAK lol).  And it’s a TERRIBLE thing that they have drive-thrus—I mean what were they thinking?  Now I don’t even have to get out my car to get my donut fix Winking smile  If I only ate Boston Crème donuts and drank Cherry Coke for the rest of my life, I’d die a very happy girl hee hee!  So yes I will be jogging a bit tomorrow to work all that off!

Totally Tubular!!


Today I’m sharing a card with you made with a fabulously cute La La Land Crafts Stamp called “Beach Marci”isn’t she cute?  Reminds me a bit of my daughter when she was little—she’s always loved to swim and loves the water so this was her outfit every summer LOL!  You can see all the NEW and cute La La Land Collection for Fall & Winter HERE too!

I’m entering this cutie pie into the following fun challenges:

Craft Your Passion (fave season—umm always summer lol)


My papers are from Best Creations “Hideaway”—great mix of patterns and glitter papers and I loved these fun summery colors! Perfect for hot August!  I embossed the yellow cs with a new embossing folder here.  The large green border was done with one of those new MS Jumbo border punches that I love and some Marianne Designs swirls of course.  The flowers are a mixture of Prima and WOC.


She was colored up with Copics Y18,Y13,Y11 / YG67,YG03,G20 / E11,E00,R20. I paper pieced the bands on her hat to match the papers.  Her yellow bathing suit stripes got a coat of Stickles and I added Diamond Glaze to her innertube for shine.  She’s ready for Beach Day!!

Hope you all have a sunny day!
