Today at work I did nothing but file.....Boring!! Ok I did copy some stuff for about 30 minutes.
But for the most part I stuffed papers into peoples charts. I would have rather been home coloring or stamping or looking at people creations on blogs...
Speaking of creations look at these I got in the mail here lately. This first one is from Donalda.
I love the cute Magnolia card. Suck pretty colors and look at all those images she sent!! There"s a huge stack under the card... She made my day with this awesome mail.
And this next one I received from Jo and she
made the cute image holder. And yes it was stuffed with great images. Even that cute little mouse one on the front of her folder... Wow!! Another make my day mail day.... Thank you girls I really love them.
Now I need to make up something to hold all the images I've got so I can see them. I'm into organizing this week. Maybe a cute lunch box??
Well I'm off to pick up my scrap room some more and maybe stamp up some images. Until later.
Have a great day!
P.S. Thank you everyone for the congratulations and comments. I really appreciate it!!

I made it... It's official.... I'm on the DT for Scrapmagasinet!!! I'm so excited and honored. When Lisbet posted on her blog that she was looking for DT members. I just had to send her an email. I love her stamps they are so cute.
I also learned something new today I was her first US customer. I didn't know. How cool is that?? I just couldn't resist getting her Rakle collection.
For today's card I used Maxit Farmer from the Rakle collection. I colored him with Prisma pencils and Gamsol. Used Basic Grey paper, Misc ribbon and embellishment. I also used Taylor's sketch #17 from Taylored Expressions. Thanks Taylor for the great sketch.
Did I tell you I'm just so EXCITED!!!! How fun....
I'm also trying to organize my blog a little. So I may move things around a bit.... Ok have to get ready for the baseball banquet now. I'm taking some coloring along to do while my husband does his thing. He said I could color if I went with him. That should keep me busy.
Until later... Have a great day!!!

Today went by super fast at work. But I like it when you stay busy. Sitting around with nothing to do drives me crazy.
For today's card I used the Cute Card Thursday challenge #11 sketch. I used my Megabilities- Spellbinder die again. This time to make the scallops at the bottom. I then used a rub-on for the little flower heart at the top. The image is a hÄnglar & stÄnglar stamp got in a swap with Monika. Thank you Monika. I really like these cute stamps. (If you live in Norway or Sweden and would help me get some of my own I would love it!!!) I used some Basic Grey pattern paper, misc. flowers, brads, rub-ons and ribbon. I'm currently trying to organize my stamps. I decided I need some way of being able to see them. So I'm stamping them on paper and putting them in a binder that I will divide up. I hoping this will help me find them easier. I hate looking through a bunch of boxes and usually end up using whats on top. This way I can see what I have and where it's at. But organizing is going to take a while. Until later... Have a great day!!

I found these cute flower brads in my stash forever. I keep looking at them and today I was like OK just use them already you can go get some more. My oldest daughter Ashley came over tonight to scrapbook her pictures from her adventure this weekend. She's so cute I never thought I'd see the day she'd be interested in anything I'm interested in doing. But she showed up with her pile of pictures she'd had printed out and some props to take a picture of some memento's she'd picked up while there. She looked through some magazines for ideas for her pages and she finished 3 whole pages. I'm impressed and she'll be back because she still has a bunch of pictures to do... Yeah!! I'll have to get me some pictures ready for next time.

4-18-08 Well they emailed me back and they gave me NO options just said it would be 2-3 weeks before it comes in. I'm so sorry!!! This is the first time I've done this and had NO idea it was going to take this long. I feel awful about all this.
5-11-08 Yes I'm still waiting... But I have the envelopes all addressed and ready.. Please hurry up and get here. But just to make it fair my ribbon is sitting in the box with all of yours. I haven't played with it yet, it just doesn't seem fair. :)

Then I seen these really cute cards over on the Verve blog using there new stamps. I said to my self you don't need to buy those you have some butterfly stamps. Yeah but what about those cute sayings??? Now come on now you can print those out your self. You have a million and one fonts in a folder on your computer. Load The Font Thing and see if you can find a similar font... OK!!! So I did and this is the result 6 cute Thank You cards for the Say Thank You challenge over at Stamp Something.

We have had crazy weather the last 3 days. I went to the bank yesterday at 4:30 and the sign said 99*. I had heard one of the patients saying it was 109* at there place that day. CRAZY!! The first day was torture. You can't go from around 50* to over a 100* in a day your just not used to it. But today was alright. Needless to say all the windows in the house are open for any breeze we can bring into the house. And I'm not sleeping in my flannel PJ's.... :) Well better go get something else made up. Until later...

Also here is my card for the Saturday Workout Challenge this weeks challenge is to use Adirondack Alcohol Inks. Which I have used to color my image with. The image is stamped on a piece of clear overlay. It was kind of tricky as it wanted to move around. Very slippery.
