At least this wasn't my kid

This happened a few times at the daycare Christmas show the other night.

Can you see her? It is kind of dark.

Why does it have to be so hard...

to get a decent picture of the children? Can't everyone just sit still for two minutes and not make funny faces? And the husband who is supposed to be helping runs away after one picture. I like to take lots so I have a better chance of getting a decent one.

Hey Morgan! Look here!!!
Ok let's try one with out your sister... umm what the heck is that face?
Maddie, open your eyes.
Carter, did you get into the egg nog?
Oh brother!
Ok, I guess this is the best one.

3 in 1

Since I have been tied up lately and haven't had anything to share for awhile I decided to give you 3 things to look at all in one post. 3, 3, 3 things in one!!!

The first is the third in my "see I am stuck on this layout" series...

This card uses Zoofari and the Sanded background. Both by SU. The colors are Bashful Blue, Whisper White, and Basic Black. I used my Marvy Circle punches and did some piercing on the black scallops.
The ribbon is from the dollar store.

This next project is a stationary box filled with nuggets. I was planning to stamp on and wrap the address labels around them, but my husband said I should leave them off so you could see what kind of nugget you were getting. I agreed, but I had to stamp some where. Then it hit me. I used my white StazOn and added snowflakes from the retired SU set Merry to the clear lid. I tied it up with Navy Organdy and stamped a tag from Tag Line in Bashful Blue.

Finally here is a cello bag, also stamped with the snowflakes from Merry in white StazOn. Inside are York Peppermint Patties covered with Night Of Navy punched pieces from the SU scalloped circle. I also punched some of last years holiday designer series paper with the 1 3/8" circle and put it in the middle. For this one I also tied it up with Navy Organdy and stamped a tag from Tag Line in Bashful Blue. This organdy is curled with my heat gun.

See I told Ya!

I told ya how I got stuck on this layout. Here is a card a made and sent in for a contest at Pink Hedgehog. The striped ribbon is from there. She sent me a yard and I had to use it on a card and send it back for the contest. Winners will probably be announced sometime next week. Let me tell you I loved the ribbon. Very nice, high quality and easy to work with. I'll be ordering some from her and some of her brads. They are custom colored and I hear they go quite nicely with several SU colors. How cool is that? And she's got eyelets too!

This card uses a mishmash of SU sets. Let's see the circle background was done with a couple stamps from Polka Dots & Petals. The Elephant and sentiment are from Wild About You and the heart is from Monkey Business. I used my small oval punch, the word window punch, and my Marvy scalloped circles. And the patterned paper was from the SU spring mini catalog last year. Oh and the heart has some stickles on it. The colors are Taken with Teal, Regal Rose, Cool Caribbean, and Whisper White.

This one is for you Jana!

Cause I know you haven't seen it before!!!

This is the last card in my series of Gina K design team submissions. Now I am stuck on this layout. I've made two other cards recently with this layout. I get stuck on a layout quite often. Oh well!

Another Special Card

Sorry Crystal! I know you have seen these before. And you are probably the only one reading this.

This is another card I submitted for the Gina K design team. I think this one is my favorite of the three. I like my sparkly black sheep. She is fabulous, isn't she?

I've been PIFing...

and neglecting my blog. What is PIFing you ask? It is a Pay It Forward thread on splitcoaststampers where you switch out your used stamp sets. So one person posts a list of stamp sets they don't use anymore, then another person sees one they want and snatches it, then they post their list. It goes on like this forever!!! It is like trading, but you most likely aren't sending your stamp set to the same person who sent you theirs.

So I feel guilty and since I haven't posted in almost a week, I am going to post a really special card today.

This is one of the cards I submitted for the Gina K design team. I don't know yet if I made it or not. I don't think they announce the new rotating members until January or something. What do you think?
