I’m a SINGER..falalala!!!

Yay and thank goodness it is FRIDAY—yeehawww!  I am looking forward to some time OUT of my studio and OUT of the house LOL.  Tree hunting we a go-ago and praying weather is good.  Do any of you have any early holiday plans this weekend?  I hope to have all my Christmas cards addressed and mailed by Wednesday and NOooooo I do not make them (GASP..OMGosh…Nope)—I make SnapFish photo cards LOL.  I do mail out about 12 homemade cards to a few friends and family who really appreciate them.  And I’m wayyy behind on Christmas card making anyway this year, kinda like I’m a little behind on everything at the moment.  But that’s ok I’m slowly getting caught up and getting ready to sloooow down a bit.  Yes I DO slow down, maybe not to a standstill but to a sloooow buzz hee hee.  And I’m feeling a tad better yes, but I don’t get the flu shots to all those that emailed me—NOT cuz I’m afraid of shots (you don’t wanna go into my medical history) but I don’t like to put extra drugs into my system or take meds unless I have to.  Yep I'm that girl--I'm a Taurus--a proud Taurus--super stubborn and hard-headed--yes I am!!   And I did get the flu shot twice and got the flu both times, so I stopped getting it and have pretty much not had the flu that much until last year.  But I know my immune system is low right now, stress is high so buggies are gonna get me but like I said…not much slows me down except for the “d” word that rhymes with beth LOL.  You gotta keep kickin’ till you can kick no more.  So all will be ok in the Dean household this weekend—deck the halls we will goooooooo and doooooo---yes I’m singing to youuuuuuuuuuuu LOL!

PS—yes I am a BAD patient, yes I do NOT listen to advice, yes my mom is shaking her head along with my hubby right now. And nope it will never change LOL!


My 2 cairns cocking their heads – this what they do when I talk to them LOL and YES I do talk to them a lot (along with the walls and myself hee hee)


Winner of my Blog Candy from this post is……#157 Hilora!  Congrats Hilora—please email me at for details!!


Sing Me a Melody!!!


Today is a new Elisabeth Bell release for SCACD called “Odds & Ends Sampler”---can I hear a yayyyy yeah!!?  I love, love this image and I even named her—how about that?  Her sweet name is Melody….yep cuz she’s singing some melodies bwhahahaha…yeah I humor myself when I type my blog hee hee.  I see her as a mini version of myself (ahem…a much younger version of meself) and yep I love to sing and dance and NOPE I don’t care where I may be!  Yes I am that annoying person that you all look at in a store going “really, is she dancing?” LOL oh yeah Winking smile Doesn’t she just make ya happy?  You gotta be happy—life is short—smile, laugh, sing and dance more and you will be happy I promise, even if its just for a few minutes!!  So the DT is having a fun blog hop today to show off these great stamps so make sure to hop around and see, and you can buy them all HERE!!  You should have come to my blog via my friend, the very talented Melanie!!

I'm entering this into the following fab challenges:
Crafty Purple Frog (someone special)
Divas by Design (anything goes)

So I have been on a mission to use scraps from my HUGE scrap pile lately.  Now don’t get me wrong I loveeee paper and you can see all the NEW yummy papers at SCACD here (yep I can enable cuz I already got them bwhahahaha).  So its all papers from SU that I used and embellished (added black dots to the paper on right and then stickles to all the dots on all the papers).  The black cs was embossed with a CB zebra folder too…mmmm love me some zebra print yes I do. If you like animal prints too all 4 of the CB emboss animal print folders are 25% off HERE!  The swirls and mat die cuts are from Marianne Designs and the sentiment I created on my computer.  She’s such a cutie!


She got colored with Copics BG13,BG11,BG10 / C3,C1,C00/ E25,E31,E50 / E11,E00.  The swirls were done with a PTI set and then I shadowed around her with Copics as well.  She got Stickles on her star patterned areas and her pretty hair barrette.  Diamond Glaze on her brush for shine.


Ok that’s all for me, but now you need to keep hopping to see all the other cuties the DT has used today!  And as always you can shop for them all HERE!

So next on the hop is my talented friend

  12. Just wonderful Suzanne! The colours simply stunning!

  13. Your card and colors are so cool.Love it.
    Ha Ha you make me laugh all of the time. I'm a Taurus and so like you. I hate taking more medicine than I have to and just suffer quietly if I'm not feeling great. Of course, my hubby and mom would constantly check up on me and tell me what I should be taking and doing. Now I"m 72 and my 91 yr old mom keeps trying to tell me what to do!!! And that makes me even more stubborn. They both shake their heads at me like yours do..but who cares !! not I!!!
    Hope you're feeling better..ha ha

    take care

  14. your posts, Girlfriend! You're so entertaining. My DH is a Taurus and yes he is the same. :) Awesome card and love the EB stamps; they are so much fun to color.
