This is my weekend project using some files by Chris Durnan. She does awesome work! I think it turned out pretty cute. I think I'll make a bigger one now though. Now that I know how to make it. I also made a couple of cards I'll share with you later.
Also I want to thank Wendy for Paying It Forward... I'll get your card and images out to you, hopefully tomorrow.I'm going to try and make up a cutter file this weekend also, any suggestions? Heather :)

I worked on a couple of other things to that I'll show you later. I also still need someone to Pay It Forward with a card and some stamped images.. I really liked the cute stuff Lorrie sent me. If you would like to Pay It Forward send me an email and I'll send you this card and some cute stamped images to use on your own stuff.

You get to travel back in time to meet Rose who is trying to save her niece Meggie from uncertain harm. And there's the cute doctor Norris who's struggling to make it up higher in life from being a low lie farmer to a prominent doctor.
Oh and did I mention the grim reaper.......
It's a great read. It took me less then a week to finish it. So if your a fan of Tess definitely go pick it up. And if you haven't tried out any of her stuff yet this might be the time.

I did go over to Sticky Stuff and order me some vinyl so I can make some wall art! It was hard choosing some colors. So I just got a bunch.
Todays my brothers birthday so I have to go buy him a present. Nothing like waiting until the last minute. We are suppose to go to his house tonight for a BBQ. Maybe I'll try and leave work early so I can go shop.. Or it's a movie rental gift card for him... Oh I still need to make him a card.. Man!! I need more time in the day...
Have a great day!!

Ok I'm having a problem with the file size for the GSD. I can't seem to make the words small enough to up load I even tried zipping it. Any suggestions? Just the words by themselves are 12.3 MB I must have not done something to them in WINPC, but I don't know how to fix them. Help would be appreciated if you know what I did wrong. Otherwise I'll try and fix it later this weekend.

He's enjoying taking pictures on our outing to the zoo. He loves taking pictures. He took twice as many photos as I took. But I captured this one of him. He's probably laughing at me trying to take his picture. But I don't mind.
I haven't had time to make any thing new today I spent to much time checking out everybody else's blogs. They are all so cool with tons of ideas. I love looking at them (probably too much). I did get a bunch of new TAC stamps today though. I'll try and put those together tomorrow and stamp something up with them.
Shae if your reading this could you email me with your address so I can send you something for leaving me a great message about Desperate Stampers Challenge. My email is on the side. Thanks!!
I have to go read some more of my new James Patterson book "You've Been Warned". It's really good!! Thanks for stopping by!

Well off to bed, but I want to share what I worked on tonight.

I did finish up these to cards for the challenge over at Desperate Stamper but I definitely won't be able to keep up. Sara's already on challenge #5. Card making is hard work. I have the hardest time with the idea part. I look at everybody else blogs for ideas and they all look so pretty I don't know how they come up with such great ideas.
This top one is for challenge #1 and the bottom one is for challenge #2 I know they aren't exactly like the sketch but this is the best I could do. Now I just need to find someone to send them too?
Stamps: CTMH - Do Nothing, Paradise SU - Sanded, Rough Texture (wheel)
Ink: SU - Buckaroo Blue, Close to Cocoa
Paper: SU - Buckaroo Blue, Marigold Morning, Cranberry Crisp, Chocolate Chip, Mellow Moss
Other: Silver Brads, Markers, Sizzix - Bookplates Oval & Traditional
I also still need to get everybody to put on there PJ's so I can take a picture of them. Getting everybody together at the same time is a challenge all by itself!!
I think I've also narrowed down my quilt choices for my friends 2 nieces. Now to just pick the fabric and start cutting them out.... Need more time!
I spent this afternoon watching the season finally of Criminal Minds Season 1, luckily season 2 comes out on DVD Oct.2nd. I hate it when they leave you hanging like that. It so sucks! But on a good note Bones and Grey's Anatomy both come out on DVD Tuesday!! Yippie. That will shorten up my play time I have to watch those as soon as I get them.
I'm heading to a birthday dinner tonight for my mom at 6. She decided she didn't need any more things to dust and we could all just get together for dinner. Fun! Maybe I'll take her a packet of those heartfelt cards I made the other day. She doesn't have to dust those.So until later..

Mexico October 2007. We had a blast, but it was super hot for us Oregonians. These pictures were taken before 9 am. I loved laying by the pool. Something I never thought I'd like.
I'm hoping to start my friends quilts this weekend and work on a few other things to share. Maybe even go on a photo taking adventure. I really want to participate in a few card sketch challenges this weekend to, but we'll see.
Do you have any files you'd like me to try and make? Let me know.
Until later... Have a great day!

One of my favorite authors has a new book coming out Sept. 10th. I can hardly wait!! I have it on hold at the local library. It going to be hard to wait that long. I hope I'm not to far down on the list to wait. Maybe I'm one of the first ones to get it. I'm not good at waiting.
I did get a chance to make up a new packet of cards on Sunday. I'll try and take a picture tonight after work so I can share those. Well better get ready for work. Until later...
Have a great day! Heather :)

I also found these cute little puppy dog ones. I gave these to my coworker. She loves dogs. Like me :).
I finished up the PJ bottoms!!! Now on to the shirts... Then I need to quilt up 2 twin quilts for my friend I'm making the surprise quilt for. She asked me to make them for her two new nieces. Not knowing I'm going to make her one. Surprise!!
I'd also like to do a couple of sketch challenges this weekend and work on my Mexico photo album. I better get busy....
Have a great day..
