Like Totally…Dudette!!

Hi my friends & Happy Thursday to you all!  I am busy getting ready to leave for Ohio tomorrow morning with my pal Marti---Marti is going to be my FB queen for the day and post any traveling mishaps that we mayyyyy incur on our 7 hour drive up hee hee. (let’s hope they are few & far between kwim)!

Ok I got a few more traveling stories for you---if you missed yesterday’s then read post below this ok LOL!  My good friend Tina (crazy banana girl from CMC chats for those that know what I’m talking about lol) came in on Saturday to Kansas City from Iowa and she roomed with me Saturday nite—poor girl huh? LOL!  We went to dinner Saturday night at a place near the hotel and while we were walking there a car pulls up next to use full of guys---drunk or “high” guys.  They asked us if we were going to the “hen house”---I’m like what the heck---Tina’s like “where the chicks live duh Suzanne” LOL.  Ummm no we are going to the restaurant---he says “well where’s the party”—umm I have NO idea---then he says “ok well we’ll see ya at the party”---yeah UMMM NOOOO!  The next morning Tina goes down to the lobby and comes back up and says those guys were on the elevator with her and they looked like death—they didn’t say a word so I’m guessing they found A Party LOL!  Weirdo’s—sorry Tina, they follow me!  And Tina says to me “I only have guys bow down to me when I’m with you”---ummm yeah NO I don’t dig that kind of bowing LOL!

Ok I fly to Tampa on a 6 am flight from Kansas City Monday morning.  This meant a 3:15 am wake up call (double ugh) and a 4 am taxi ride.  The taxi driver was quite perky and I asked him to take me to an atm—so we pull into this gas station and he’s like what can I get you? LOL—so he got me a Coke Icee while I used the ATM, never had that kinda service from a taxi hee hee.  Then we get in the car and he tells me about the person he had picked up before me.  He picked him up at this deserted building, the guy gave him a $100 bill and said he had no address but would tell him how to get wherever he needed to go (creepy #1). He said he was dressed in multiple dirty layers (creepy #2) and wouldn’t answer any questions (creepy #3).  So the taxi driver (Andre) kept all the inside lights on, LOL and finally they reached the destination---KNOW WHAT IT WAS????  LEAVENWORTH---yeah the prison people!!  He said he got out of the car went up to the guard gate & disappeared inside---guess he was CHECKING IN, LMBO---can you imagine, that’s just CREEPY, ICKY!  So he was so excited that I was normal (hmmm if he only knew) and just going to the airport that he had to buy me a Coke Icee hee hee!

Ok I have 3 more stories from this trip I will share with you over the next few days—one is unbelievable!!  Well most of them are but they seem to like to “find” me!!


-For those that have joined my cyber book club BookEndz over at the CMC Classroom (anyone is welcome to join)!  We are having our Wrap Up Party tonight at 8 pm EST for our September Book pick.  We will have some fun prizes, fun questions, fun chat and then announcement of the October Book Pick!

So I got to pull out some more of those super-cute new Magnolia stamps from the “Winner Takes It All” Collection from Magnolia-licious.  This cutie “Skateboard Tilda” just stole my heart cuz I WAS SUCH A TOMBOY when I was younger and her stance & ‘tude remind me of myself!  And what do I like?  Yep, bright colors and zebra stripes so I had to use both on this card!!  I saw this Skipping Stones sketch here at my pal Amy Sheffer’s beautiful blog and I knew it was PERFECT for this gal!!

This card is being entered into the following challenges:

Penny's Challenges (anything goes)
Simon Says Stamp (anything goes)
Make It Monday (anything goes)


So the papers are by Basic Grey “Lauderdale”—love the fun & bright colors and patterns!  I used my SBs Pinking Circles to cut out my mat circles and I embossed the aqua layer with my Zebra Cuttlebug Embossing folder—gotta have more zebra.  I used my SU star punches and layered them with buttons and swirls from Marianne Designs dies.  The sentiment is from PTI and I put a few colored pearls underneath for more bling!


Yep she’s colored with Copics—BG75,BG72,BG11,BG10 / RV14,RV13,RV10 / E59,E25,E31,E50 / E11,E00,R20 / YG25,YG03,G20 / forget the blues I used LOL but B21 & B34 were two of them.  I used Diamond Glaze on the skateboard and stickles on her shirt!  Hey even Tomboys can have bling Smile


Hope you have a brilliant day and make it a great one!!
