Question: Does it count if one of you send me a fantabulous link before midnight tonight and then I buy tomorrow? HURRY SOMEONE SEND ME A LINK TO BUY SOMETHING!!!!! (GASP!!!) (BREATHE!!!!) I can do this.
Another goal is to double up on classes. I am going to check it out on April 10. If it even seems like a possibility, then I promised I would put down the ink and take more than one class to graduate sooner. BREATHE GIRLS!!!! IT MIGHT NOT HAPPEN!!!!
Can you tell that I seem a little more dramatic than usual? It's been a roller coaster type of day. I might be able to tell you more about it later. But not right now.

One of my biggest challenges is actually coming up with ideas. I totally copied this card from SCS. I wished I would have inked my bird a little bit more. Otherwise, I am really happy with how quick and easy this card was to do.
Hope you like it,

Helped me hang my shelves and put the pink back in my spot...I know there was pink before...there is more pink (and some green) now!! Wooo Hooo Yummy!!
I have also jumped on the Ikea bandwagon and am using the towel bars as punch holders. A little embarrased, I have 7 and could easily add 2-4 more!! They are sooo wonderful!!! Here 5 of them here and the other 2 are right above my scrapping table with my regular squares and cirlcles and matching scallops, I seem to use them the most.
Here is a pick of the ones I use most...
You can tell with all of the light that I "live" in the garage. It's really pretty nice. I like it. Especially when the weather is beautiful like today. I can watch the boys play and scrap at the same time. Hubby is grilling on the BBQ...YUM!!!
Hopefully I will post some productivity later...
Before the last month or so I only had Bella stamps from Stampinbella and Stamps from Stampin' Up!. Oh, and some from the local JoAnns, Michaels, and Hobby Lobby. As I started to stalk Split Coast Stampers everyday I noticed that there are soooo many other fantastic stamps and companies that I just had to try.
I have already told you about High Hope Stamps and how much I love them and their awesome customer service. Although I wish the shipping was faster, they are sooo worth the wait!
My next order brings me to the reason for this post. I placed an order from 7kidscollegefund and it came so super fast. The shipping was so unbelievable starting at $3 something. I bought this lovely little Sara Kay stamp and just other little doo dads. I stamped her with Tuxedo Black Mometo Ink. I never knew there would be an ink that would not smear the black. I am in love with this ink!!! I will hold off further babble and show you this precious Margaux.
Isn't she so sweet? She is the only one I have of the Sara Kay Collection, she sure won't be my last. I colored her wih color pencils and blended them using Gamsol Magic. The paper is DCWV and some of the card is embossed using my Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. The flowers are punched out of thick mulberry and on the right hand side of the card is a the tab punch from Stampin' Up! I only wished I would have colored her hat and shirt orange and yellow. I changed the card colors at the last minute.
I hope you all like her, I think she is cute. You can hop on over to 7kidscollegefund and check out most of the items that I used to make this bright and cheery card.

This is all especially frustrating because we had to buy a new stove yesterday. That was horrible!!! So I am really grounded now.
Does anyone feel my frustration?!! Do you ever get to that point when spending money on anything just starts to make you cranky? I am at that point now.
To make things worse, I am officially kicked out of what is now the "game room". It's my old scrap room inside the house. I have been hiding/keeping my barely used stuff there for over a year. That's what I get for asking for more shelves inside the garage. He took the old ones down and even packed everything up very nicely and moved it all himself. I wish you could see me pouting right now. Shhhh...we won't mention the guest room closet. :-)
So as I am moving around I feel even more frustrated because I remember exactly when and where I bought most of this stuff. What was I thinking? Tons of $$$$$ waasted!!!!
I do have a point with some of this. I have lots of stuff I can get rid of and I need to recoupe some of the money I have been blowing lately.
FREE STUFF FOR YOU!!!
With every order placed through my SU! Website I am just going to mail you a little gift. Book a party for the month of April (or place a order of $150 or more) and get a free stamp set (sorry, of my choosing).
I am sooo rude.....I forgot to beg..... PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!
Email me with any question you have at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gotta get back to cleaning, Big Hugs!!!

Not too bad, eh? Both sentiments are stamped from Stampin' Up! sets. The first one is "Just a little thanks" from Matchbox Messages in the Occasional Mini Catalog, The second sentiment is from "Oval All" from the Occasional Mini Catalog also. Oval All punches out so beautifully using the new Scallop Oval Punch available in the Mini Catty. All will be available April 1st. You will want to make sure you mark your calendars. The whole catalog is a must have!! So many of the sets are compatable with punches and the new Matchbox Bigz XL Die. I am pretty sure with all of the die cut maniacs out there that these will go on back order very quickly.
Make sure you go to my website and order as early as possible on the first of April. I can't spill everything, but there is a special incentive for every $40 you spend out of the Occasional Mini Catalog beginning on April, 1st. For every order on April 1st over $100 through my website I will throw in something special on top of everything else.
With all of that being said....Sale-A-Bration is coming to an end on March 31. These special sets will no longer be available after that date. If you have a $50 dollar order just waiting to be placed, now is the time to do it!!!

Here is "Froggy Gift" colored the same way. I added some buttons from Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby) and trimmed one edge using my Martha Stewart Zig Zag border punch from Michaels. It's nice to be able to get back to coloring. I am so happy with how these turned out. I "CASED" him from SCS.

O.k!!!! Really, I am going to go be productive and whip something up....
No, you say bye first......
Maybe I will pull and all nighter and have a pile of amazement for you all when you wake up. :-)
