Still on Track...barely...

Hey All,

So I've got this horrible cough lately.  The kind that strikes at 1am and is relentless in its execution until about 4am.  I feel like I'm about to cough up a lung!  I've resorted to spreading Vick Vapour Rub on the bottoms of my feet and putting thick socks over top (don't laugh...it works).  The Benadryl Cough Syrup provides a little relief...but only a little.  I spent most of the day today drifting in and out of sleep on the couch and listening to a service guy work on our gas fireplace going on about how odd and crazy it's installation was (hubby was working from home...I wasn't alone thank goodness!).  Hubby cast it off as builder's fault.  Nevertheless, the fireplace is fixed and I'm still semi-comatose.  At least I'm conscious enough to post this card I made for this weeks Simon Says Stamp challenge based on a sketch.  Here is the sketch:

And here is my take on said sketch.
I've had this stamp for quite a while.  Dare I say it was probably one of my first rubber stamps ever purchased...that was quite a while ago.  I bought it from the clearance bin at Michaels.  I loved the cherub hiding inside.  But alas it got tucked away in a drawer and forgotten until I stumbled across it and knew I had to let it have it's moment in the spotlight after all these years.  This card will go to my cousin's new baby girl who is getting baptized.  Hopefully it will also bring some good luck and win me some goodies.  Here's hoping!

Off to A Good Start and Being Thankful for it!

Hello All!
What are the chances!?  I'm back here twice in the same day!  I told you I've turned a new leaf!  So I'm back to my antics following the challenges over at Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog and this time it's in line with the American thanksgiving theme.  Here in the great white north, Thanksgiving happens in early October but nevertheless there is never a shortage of things to be thankful for.  Here is a card I made for the occasion.

HOLY COW Has it been that long?!

Hey All,

Yes, It seems the time has gone in a blink of an eye.  My last post was quite a few months ago!  But I've turned a new leaf (a few of them actually) and hopefully time will be found for doing the things I love most!...and sharing them with you!  For starters I've been asked to be a guest designer for a couple of local scrapbook stores. (YAY!).  Please check out my posts over there for some inspiration and maybe a few creative tips! and feel free to drop a line or two!
