Thou Shall Not Whine...yeah right.

I have a sign in my home that says "Thou Shall Not Whine"...apropos since I have 3 girls and they can sometimes be whiny. (My hubby says I can get this way too...I choose to ignore this comment.) Bwahahaha. But bear with me while I rant for a moment...


My kiddos aren't even in sports yet this year and I am dealing with major busyness. I'm tired of driving my kids everywhere. Sheesh. Even my busy weekends...which have been FUN...are not relaxing! I feel like I need a mental health day! GAH! Now, this weekend hubby and I decided to try and watch ALL SIX Star Wars films on blu-ray (because of course we had to own that set when it came out!! SQUEEE) We only got through Episode IV (the "original Star Wars from 1977 for all my non-geek readers) because I also had my Stamp Camp and a Thirty One Party this weekend (I know, I bring this on myself for scheduling so much on the weekend....I know)
....but here I am on Sunday night and even though I got to SIT and watch (or snooze, since I was so tired--I suffer from cinema narcolepsy LOL) I am lamenting that I didn't have time to organize my bathroom closet.

Wow. Am I SICK?!? Because that is just wrong. ORGANIZE MY BATHROOM CLOSET?!? Bwahahahaha.

Ok. Rant over. Sorry. Now on to our regularly scheduled progamming. HA!

So I'm overdue in sharing a card with busyness has prevented me from participating in some of my favorite challenges...but this was a fun card to make. I would NOT have put these colors together originally, but aren't they fabulous?!? My Color Coach is my friend!

All Supplies from Stampin' Up! (SU) Stamps: Circle Circus; Paper: Lavender Lace (retired), Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant; Ink: More Mustard, Elegant Eggplant, Lavender Lace (retired), Summer Sun (retired); Sentiment: rub-on; Accessories: SU button, Circle punches
I hope you have a fabulous week!  I have one more month of the current Stamp Club. The next Club will start up in January.  I've also scheduled my Christmas Stamp A Stack of cards for November 5th! SQUEEE! Hope you can make it!
Thanks for stopping by!

Randomness...and ellipses....(and a winner!)

So I never heard from my 1st winner-so I used to choose another number. This time it was #10....and that comment belongs to "hanwayink" who is also one of my twitter homies!!! Congrats Michelle!! I'll message you on twitter and get your box of goodies together!!

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!!

Clean and simple...

I love clean and simple (CAS) customers are loving them during our Stamp Club, too.  I made this card several weeks ago for a Splitcoaststampers CAS challenge...and I think I got the idea from my friend Lydia (Understand Blue) to use punched DSP or embossed easy is THAT?!? I had scraps of it in and just punched out the squares and sponged it--I've used Wisteria Wonder, Tempting Turquoise and Melon Mambo (all Stampin' Up) here....sentiment is from Hope Happens.
You have to come back on crafty twitter friends and I have put together a blog hop!
So be sure to see all the stampy goodness on Monday! ....and I'll have
