Card*a*licious #2

I love this cute little card blog. I have spent a lot of time learning card making techniques. Cards were never my strong suit. This blog is perfect for developing my own card groove! This week's challenge:
"pull out your journaling spots and use them!-make a birthday card---but you must use at LEAST two journalingspots/cards/tags"

I used a KC&Company tag and there are some journalling lines there from the Tag Tricia You're It! Stamp set that I bought from That's Jazzy Stamp Dreams.

Frightfully Fun!

Bad blogger. Bad bad blogger! Yup, that is me! Life is just always getting in the way of my blog and my scrapbooking these days. But now I will share with you a few tidbits, just to make you happy, k?

First of all, Hannah failed her eye exam at school. You know, those piddly things that some screener does at the local schools once a year. Well, actually, this is the second year in a row (don't throw things at me please!) that she failed. Soooooo, off to the eye doctor we went and here are the results:

Doesn't she look so smart! And totally like her mommy. In fact her glasses are the same shape and style as mine!!!! Ok, enough of that....

I have worked on a couple of things today. Have you been to Paper Popsicles??? You really ought to join us. They are very busy over there with monthly theme challenges, awesome raks, monthly sketch challenges, awesome raks and a super economically friendly scrapbooking store, right there, all in one spot!!! Here are a few things that I did for PP:

The first one is a card that I got from Paper Popsicles. Melissa makes her own cards and sends them blank/white for you to embellish as you wish. She even sends you an envie!!! How convenient and they are a steal! Come visit the store at Paper Popsicles and get yourself some!

The second diddy is a small coffee can that I altered. The challenge was to alter a paint can of which I did not have. BUT, I drink alot of coffee so I had lots of these hanging around!!!

The next two items I did for a new card challenge blog that my friend Jackie designs for called Cardalicious. The challenge was to create a card with a Halloween icon:

I have to mention that a great Cricut Design Studio creator-ess, Laurinda, designed the drippy goo on the first card there. It looks so much like that Martha Stewart punch! I love it!!!

Speaking of Laurinda, she was kind enough to tag me. Most of you know, I don't do well with these I will answer the questions but I will not tag on....otherwise you will feel the need to tag me back...and I have to stop the madness somewhere!!!! lol
7 random facts about me:
1. I love fountain cokes.
2. I eat ice cream nearly every night with my DH, and from DQ
3. I {{heart}} working
4. I still chew my fingernails and pick at my cuticles
5. 99% of my friends are online (man am I a geek!)
6. I love gardening
7. I finally will have a layout published in a BOOK in 2009!!!

Thank you Laurinda for spurring me on to update my blog!!!
