I married well--besides my husband being patient, kind, funny, etc....he's also my in-house tech support. He doesn't consider himself "handy" at all (even though he's uninstalled and installed a dishwasher, among other things)...but he is our computer/tech guru and considering the time we live in he's incredibly "handy"!
It's awesome having full access to someone who builds computers (his day job is programming, he builds computers for "fun"). So...he's rebuilding my computer now.
So, bear with me (as I post this via email from my phone! LOL) Because I've had lots of stampy goodness to share!! Working on my Christmas card...plan...hahaha haven't cut paper yet (from the girl who sent "New Year's" cards one year!)!
Please excuse any typos as this email was sent from my iPhone. :-)

Sorry I've been out of the blogsasphere for awhile...been a little sick and a lot busy...I've missed a lot!!
I've put together these little test tube holders to give as goodies to my co-workers. The template for them is on Splitcoaststampers.com and I used the sets Warmest of Wishes ( which I got FREE at Convention!!) and Eat Drink Be Scary (retired).

Hubby and I are spending the weekend up in Dallas for his best friend's wedding. I'm looking forward to seeing old friends...but at the same time wondering when I'll have a weekend at home without anything on the agenda! I haven't stamped a card since the blog hop and I miss my stamp studio! Wahhhhhh!!!! LOL AND my Stampin' Up customers keep telling me they miss my classes...and I want to schedule a few this fall...GAH!!! I hate being busy.
I cannot read all the novels I want AND stamp hahaha I'm finishing the 3rd book in the Hunger Games series--Mockingjay--and REALLY want to finish it already....and I'd like to read The Help...sigh.
I hear there is going to be an iPad app for Blogger...I hope so because I can't even change the font when I post from my iPad! Annoying!!!
So, thank you for reading this far...through the randomness and ellipses!!
Come back...I'll have some Halloween and fall stuff to share very soon!!

Now for my card...I used stamps from the new Stampin' Up Holiday Mini Catalog.
And, yes...I did SQUEEE a little bit when this card was finally put together!
Yes, those leaves are CUT OUT WITH SCISSORS (sorry for yelling)...and you all know how I hate to cut stuff out....but it just HAD to be done! And I really like how the layers turned out.
All from Stampin' Up!--Stamps: Gently Falling, Hand-Penned Holidays, Sanded (Background stamp); Ink: Elegant Eggplant, More Mustard, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede; Cardstock: First Edition Specialty DSP, Soft Suede, Elegant Eggplant, More Mustard, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Decorative Label Punch, Concord Crush 1/2" stitched poly ribbon, Aqua Painter, Color Spritzer Tool
I stamped the leaves in Soft Suede on the First Edition DSP, then watercolored with my Aqua Painter in Elegant Eggplant and More Mustard inks...cut them out (GAH!) then adhered with with Stampin' Dimensionals. The background is stamped with Sanded in Crumb Cake, then spritzed with Elegant Eggplant. I used the Decorative Label Punch to give my sentiment piece a little trim (a trick I learned at Convention!) then used 2 punches of the label in Eggplant to cover the back of the sentiment.

I freaking LOVE THIS STAMP SET (Up Up and Away). I totally SQUEEEE'd out loud when I saw it in our new Catalog! I've seen hot air balloons for real once in my life....Abilene had a hot air balloon festival when we happened to be up there visiting my Brother in Law and his family. It's so amazing to see them in action. And the crazy people who are willing to stand in that teeny, tiny basket and fly HIGH in the sky!!! I'll watch safely from the ground thankyouverymuch!!!
Here's some pictures from the real thing....
|Look at the TEENY TINY basket! GAH!!!|
And my card...
So...for the BLOG CANDY!!! I recently discovered I have ordered 2 different background stamps TWICE since our new catalog came out! That is how disorganized I am! (I also have flibbertigibbet tendencies...I know this. I also need an Organization Intervention in my Stamp Studio!!! GAH!!!) That also tells you how much I LOVE these particular stamps because I wanted to make sure I had them! BWAHAHAHAHA!!
So I'm going to have back-to-back blog posts with blog candy! CAN YOU STAND IT!!!
SO--to get your name in the hat for this week's stamp--the Stampin' Up! DISTRESSED DOTS background stamp--please leave a comment. You have until midnight CST, August 13th, 2011. I'll announce the winner on 8/14/2011! Good luck!

|Lydia, Cheryl and I got to walk the stage for recruiting this year in Stampin' Up!|
Now... the drive UP to the resort made me a little nervous....they don't have guardrails on all the turns up the mountain (!!!!!!!!!!! WTH !!!!!!!!!!!) but since I didn't see a lot of fiery car wreckage in the ravines or tire tracks going off the side of the roads as we were driving up I felt a little better. Sheesh.
The scenery was so beautiful driving up (and back) I kept trying to take pictures out of the moving vehicle. Right. Those pics didn't turn out so well. Hahahahhahahaha.
But these did:
Here's a close up of those mountains you see back there.....
The resort was PACKED with people....understandably since it was so beautiful and the air was DIVINE. There was still some snow you could see....
I basically walked around with my mouth gaping open saying stupid things like "OMG the chair lifts are so HIGH OFF THE GROUND!! I would NEVER ride that!" To which Melanie said "Well, when there's snow on the ground, it's not so high then." Bwahahahaha!!!
I looked up at the side of the mountain and then at the rushing river of melted snow (hint Dana....THINK.....but no.....instead I said) "Wow, so you ski down the mountain, and how do you avoid skiing into the river?" As soon as those words were out of my mouth I started to BWAHAHAHA because they were all telling me "well the river is FROZEN silly and covered with snow" BWAHAHAHAHA truly a dumb blonde moment. I still giggle thinking about that! DUH!
