Cleaning Day!

Hi folks & Happy Wednesday to you all!  I am back...back with a card...don't fall over or anything ok? LOL!  I managed to color over two days in spurts so I'm getting there..slowly but surely.  And tomorrow I will be super busy.  My lovely daughter decided to turn her "6 friends max" Halloween get together into a FULL BLOWN-over 20 teens-costume party....SAY WHAT...OMG??? Yeah she sprung that on my yesterday...nice huh?  And said "Oh mom, don't worry you won't have to do anything"...ummm yeah best joke ever told right there ladies & gents.  And no I can't say NO because this is her last Halloween at home year she'll be at college {sniff, sniff} but advance warning woulda been nice eh?  Given that I'm still not even 70% up to my usual health I am ordering pizzas...we will do chips and dips and each of the teens are bringing a bag of candy or a dessert.  So I will use some of my Halloween decorations I made HERE, string some lights & cobwebs around the patio and on the bushes, pull out my light-up pumpkins and call it a day.  But that means I have to go to grocery store & party store and do some cleaning inside & outside.  Hopefully the temps stay mild so they can REMAIN on the patio under the cabana, with the fireplace on watching scary movies.  That's the plan...then they can come inside the basement if they get chilly..and need to be gone by 11 pm..on witches brooms home I say.  ahahhahahaha

So if I'm quiet for the next few know why!  While kids are partying I shall be attempting to paint my dining least the cut-ins around the doors & windows.  Not sure what Riley is planning on doing yet...I know they aren't going trick-or-treating as they have a Pasta Team Dinner tomorrow night.  Probably have friends over to watch a game but Halloween is on a school night...which is always a bummer...but gets them home & in bed at a good time (love that)!!


Cleaning Day!

Today I'm sharing a card (gasp..I know its been awhile) that features a super cute Wild Rose Studios stamp from Magnolia-licious called Suzanne ummmm "Emily Vacuuming".  Hop over to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog to see the "W"ednesday Post and the other DT gals projects too!

Diana Crick gifted her to me and when it arrived in the mail I had to giggle...why?  Because I have 8 animals (6 cats & 2 dogs) and I vacuum every day..not on Saturdays though...because I can't stand dust & fur on my hardwood floors. I actually love to vacuum..I may be a bit OCD with it but the CATS...whoa nelly they shed a lot (dogs are non-shedders). And if I see a furball I will break out the vacuum even with guests here LOL.  So when I saw this stamp it screamed "SUZANNE" :)  dontcha' think?

Check out the NEW Christmas Wild Rose Studio Stamps at Magnolia-licious!!

I love the larger shaped cards these days but I'm not willing to pay the big $$ right now for those larger dies...they are quite costly and are made for larger machines (I use my Cuttlebug still lol)...beautiful yes but not in this gal's budget.  And I have a Silhouette crafty purchase I've made in past 2 I cut my own larger shapes out of cardstock and patterned paper with my Cameo...easy & quick.  Hundreds of fun shapes to cut and a lot more economical for me.  I went with this bright, fun paper by Doodlebug Designs "Take Note"...loved the colors and patterns. The little clip boards were cut out from one of the papers in the paper pad.  The "ENJOY THE LITTLE THINGS" was also cut on my Cameo...reminds me to enjoy even the most mundane tasks..because it means we are living and there is always joy in that folks!  Some layered flowers and the swirls are a Memory Box die cut from the rainbow paper for visual interest.  I doodled a bit around the aqua card base with my white Sharpie just for a lil' more fun!!

This cutie got colored with Copics and then I accented with Stickles on the vacuum (a fancy-schmancy vacuum I must say) and on her shirt...isn't that doggie sweet?  I vacuum my cats...yes I really do...they don't really like it but they have gotten ummmm used to it you could say LOL. Gets off all that extra hair quickly...I do it once a everytime I bring out the vacuum they just all hide whether I'm vacuuming them or the floors ahahahha!!  So NOT sure they'd wanna ride on it ;)

These words were cut out on my Silhouette Cameo then accented with my white Sharpie pen!

That's it for I'm off to run errands and get ready for this so-called
Halloween party I'm hosting ;)
