This Is The Stuff Lyric Video

This is a great song....I love it when it comes on the radio when I am driving to and from class.....always makes my day go brighter....lately there have been quite a few "dim" days.

Manly Card

I'll admit it.....I'm not real good at making "manly cards" ~ all my cards tend to be sparkly, flowery...you get the picture =)
But then I saw the Corrosive challenge to use buttons and it worked oh so perfectly with the sketch from Sketch Saturday and I found some not-too-sparkly paper that I could pass off as manly =)

Yes, crappy scanner picture, I know ~ if anyone has a good idea of where to look for my camera battery charger (that has been MIA since right after Christmas) I'm ALL ears! =)

Mojo Monday ~ on Wednesday!

Yes, it is Wednesday ~ and since we had a lovely 18 inches of snow fall overnight (yup, we most definitely had a blizzard!) the boys don't have school today, I don't have school today and my husband doesn't have work today! You know it is bad when the snow plows are getting stuck!
So, while I am "stuck" at home, I thought I'd create some cards! Heaven knows that I don't have much time for "me" this semester.....that is what taking Microbiology does to you....the only pretty colors I get to see are the bacteria I am staining and examining under the mircoscope!
I used the sketch from Mojo Monday to create my square card =)

I promise you it looks much better in person....but until I can locate my blasted battery charger, I have to keep using the scanner =/

First Valentine's Card of the year!

On the Fussy & Fancy Friday Challenge, the challenge was to make a Valentine's card with NO pink and NO red! Sounded pretty good to me....until I realized just how many DPs have pink and/or red in them! Oh my!
I did finally find some DP I liked, so I paired the challenge from Fussy and Fancy with the Sketch from Scrapbook Place Challenges blog~ and ~ voila! My first Valentine's card =)

Sorry about the picture.....I STILL haven't found my camera battery charger (ARGH!) so I am having to scan everything, and the scanner just doesn't do as good of a job as a camera =( The hairbows, skirt and heart are paper pieced with the prettiest glittered cardstock, but unfortunately it is really hard to tell.
