Miss Ronda

There are tons of talented card makers/scrapbookers (including you people!!) out there. Sometimes you meet someone whom you just click with, right?? Well I have a friend that meets both of these criterias..........................let me introduce you to Miss Ronda from Danica's Scrapbooking. EVERYONE at Danica's is so creative but I'm highlighting Ronda because of a card.
Ronda has more creativity in her pinkie than I do my whole body!! Her projects are usually simplistic and that is what I tend to love.
She sent me a birthday card that is just so much fun but also simplistic. See, she doesn't buy/have all the go gahs that I have to have. But she creates the best cards!!!

Here is a birthday card she sent me. I laughed and laughed when I got it. It's just so funny and sweet at the same time.
Oh yeah, the inside says,
"In this day and AGE, life is so uncertain!! Just Eat the frosting."
Please note the fake cute!!

Lucy Lou

I love this cat!! She's always with me. So much so that if you haven't seen my crafting room, she has her own "perch" right above where I stamp.
Yesterday I was working on a labor intensive card for a friend of mine. I had stamped and cut the mask for the second stamping. Earlier I had paper pierced and colored another area. Anyway, Lucy was sleeping and twitching..........normal while I stamp. I was just getting ready to do the second round of stamping and this silly cat rolled off her perch in her sleep right on my card!! Of course it ruined my stamping but what was funny was that she landed on my black Momento teardrop shaped ink. She had a perfect teardrop stamped on her rear end. I tried to catch her but she was freaked!! She spent the day with the mark on her rear end until I got my hands on her!!!

Here's another card that I finished:

Fiskars Punch

Fiskars: All A Fleur Edge Punch

I meant to post this with Dana's birthday card....forgot. No surprise there. This is the inside of the card. What I want you to look at is the design of this Fiskars punch. It's at the top and bottom. This is an eye catching and absolutely beautiful punch. It embosses a little too. I am so glad I invested in it. I got it off Ebay. You know you need it!!! LOL

Crop-A-Dile Big Bite

I bought one of these when I went on my birthday craft shopping day. It took me a full 15 minutes to get it out of the packaging. Now mind you, that was just the Big Bite!!! It took me another 5+ minutes to get to the directions!!! And guess what!!!! The sheet of paper said INSTRUCTIONS in English but everything else was in French!! I finally found the instructions on a scrap of cardboard and it was white typing on baby blue. Ya can't read it!!!! Sheesh!!!
Anyway, whoever invented that hard plastic, heat sealed at the edges packaging should be shot!!! Anyone with arthritis simply would not be able to open it!!! And can I return it if I choose??? Not a chance!!! Grrrrr!!

I haven't used it yet but I seems heavy although it is designed to "stand" on the table not like the basic Crop-A-Dile.

I would love to hear from you that have one. Comments???

Birthday Card

I finally received this stamp from Paper Pretties. I wanted to use it for my youngest daughter's birthday card (her birthday was only a month ago). So yippee I got it done this weekend!! My daughter is in her first year of college and has taken ballet since she was in the first grade. She's so graceful with her slender long arms and legs.
Anyway, this is for you Dana.

March 31

I had a great birthday yesterday. As you may know already, I live in the boonies. I always tell everyone the nearest McDonalds is about an hour away with mostly wheat fields, deer, elk, cougars and game birds in between. The town I live in has 650 wonderful people but it's not much on the shopping for crafts side.

So my husband took me to the big city (The TriCities in Washington) for dinner and some craft shopping!! First stop was Michaels. I did a lot of looking but didn't find anything that I really needed. I did pick up a few stick pens and found some photo boxes for a project. I was excited about those two items. My husband went to Sportsman Warehouse.

Next, Craftware House. This is one of my favorite stores. I bought everything from the Big Bite Crop-a-dile to cowboy up paper for my two boys I scrap for. I found some Heidi Swapp Ghosts. I've been looking and looking for them! My husband took a nap in the car.

Then we went to Costco which I love. I bought some groceries but I mostly I looked and looked.

To top the day, we went to Red Lobster for their Lobster Fest. Heavenly!!!

Thank you to all of you followers!! You make my day with your comments!!
