This card uses one....wait, actually two of the stamps I just got. Don't ya just love this little sweet thing? My oldest son came over and said "Nice Gnome, Mom!" I had to laugh. Her name is Peggy Polka Dot, and I just love her.....I also got a little boy as well, I'll have to make a card with him real soon so y'all can see how adorable he is too!
Anyway, from looking at the sketch from Tracy, I knew I wanted to use some of my Early Bird PP, and so that pretty much decided my color scheme. This was such a fun sketch to do, thanks Tracy!
I haven't really been all that thrilled with some of the cards I have made lately, but I really really love this one. I think I'll have to use it for my August Card Class.
And now some non stampin' stuff. Ever since I saw the picture of Tracy's new kitty, Jinxy, I have thought that she is the spittin' image, only in girl form, of our newest kitty Titan, or Tininan, as he is best known in our house. We have this crazy habit of having multiple names for our pets. Kinda crazy, but oh well. So I just had to post this picture of Titan, so those of you who have seen Jinxy will know what I'm talkin' about!

Now that I look at it compared to the tote....I think I should have used less Soft Sky. Oh well, it's done now!

Oh, and here's a few pictures of our weekend at the beach house! I swear it is impossible to get a picture of all three boys, where they are all looking at the camera!

But this card that I made for her sketch made me happy! I was able to sleep in this morning, as well as one can with 3 boys runnin' amok through the house, and came downstairs and got on the computer, and then just started stamping. This card just about put itself together. I did have some rhinestones on the little pink dots in the flower, but removed them, cuz they just didn't seem right.....can you believe I actually removed bling from a card? There must be something in the water.Hope everyone is having a good week and enjoying summer!

Warning: There's going to be some rambling in this post!
The funny thing about the colors that Dawn chose for her challenge is this: I had just finished making a card, not for any challenge or anything in particular, and when I finished the card I was going to head up to bed to read for a little while, but I decided real quick to check out Dawn's site. When I saw these colors that she had chosen, I thought I must have ESP, because the card I just finished , was pretty much those same colors. A little strange don't ya think? If you want to see this card, click here!

My guys at the pool!
Why is it that the boys look so pained in the picure with me, but just great in the picture with Dad?
Mt. Bachelor. This is a view from the Lava Cast Forrest, but we basically have the same view of it from the house we stay in, only there's hole #17 of The Meadows Golf Course in the foreground. You can't get any more beautiful than that!

Yay, so I've reached 20 followers, and like I promised, I'm going to give away a stamp set out of the new SU catalog to one lucky follower! So here we go!
Random Integer Generator
Here are your random numbers:2
Timestamp: 2009-07-16 04:15:45 UTC
And that would make the winner....KIMBERLY! Congrats! Just email me your address and I will get your stamp set out to you right away!
If you're wondering how I did this, I got the random number from random.org, and since all of y'all don't have numbers associated with you in my following list, I just took the number (2) and counted down from the top of the list blogger gave me, and Kimberly happened to be the one!
I think I like this game! Do you? I'm thinkin' that for every 10 more people who join my site...I might just have to keep doing this and be givin' fun stuff away!
Hopefully my mojo will find me, and I'll be back tomorrow with another card!
Happy stamping to all of you, and thank you to those of you who actually like to come back again and again and check out what I'm doing....it really means a lot!

This is the second post for today.....trying to make up for vacation time, so be sure to check out my earlier post with my card box!
Do you ever feel like you pump out these projects and creations for other people, and mean to make some for yourself as well, but never get around to it? I do this ALL the time. I can't tell you how many unfinished projects I have.....
Well, this is a card box I made....for myself. I knew that I wanted to use this particular pp from October Afternoon, but couldn't locate it anywhere.....everywhere I looked, it was sold out. So I found it on ebay. It's so sad to admit, but I wanted it THAT bad. The box I found at a local scrap store....it's actually a recipe box, so it has dividers, that I'm going to cover with pp, and label for different sorts of cards. Its on my list of things to do.
Oh.....btw, we just need one more follower to get to 20, and then I can give away a stamp set from the new SU catalog!

Hopefully I will be back Tuesday with a card......I had a couple of posts all done that I was going to schedule to post this week while I'm away, but I never got the pictures for them uploaded....just didn't have time with all the family in town for the 4th, and then trying to pack up to leave early Sunday morning. And I'm on Ker's computer now, and he doesn't have any of my pictures. Shouldn't all husbands have back ups of all their wives' stamping/blogging pictures?
Anyway....things should be quiet here until Tuesday! Hope y'all have a great week!

Well, I stamped flowers and I made flowers with my Slice. The slice won out, mainly because I didn't want to cut out all those intricate flowers I had stamped, but also because.....well I don't really know. Oh yeah, now I remember, I didn't want there to be any white on the card, since white was not one of the colors called for (even though Dawn mentioned it would be OK).
