What’s WRONG with this picture?

May 26, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: My family stuff, Uncategorized


Can you guess?

Well Look at Amber’s arms! She spotted! She has a very strange circular rash on JUST her arms. It started tonight.

Does it not look like someone did the reinker technique where you put in dye ink (in this case red), and dish liquid, then blew bubbles and let it pop on her arm?

THAT is how I described this to the Doctor over the phone. HE is not a stamper, but I think he got my drift.

Its called a TARGET rash. Im surprised I dont break out in this every weekend when I need my shopping fix! LOL!

In all seriousness this is freakin me out. This is what they THINK she had. Its a response to a virus or a allergic reaction. “I” have never seen this before. On anyone. Ive worked in some crazy places and seen some crazy things (such as a man who ripped his indwelling urinary catheter out, and his penis ripped WIDE open : like a hot dog that splits down the middle when cooked too long. AND it healed that way! OMG! Let me tell you I did almost pass out when that happened. Everytime I took care of him it made me cringe seeing it) but never a rash like this.

So now we wait.

I just had to share the photo with you all.

BTW I offered to email the photos to the DR but they declined. HMMMMM.

Let hope it goes away tonight.

She so cute even with spots isnt she?

Going with Gray! Saturday Sketch

May 26, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards, Saturday Sketch

OK I did it!

It wasn’t easy combining Gray in my design I must admit. After looking at that site with color combo’s I was ready to go-then it hit. My mojo was not lovin gray! No matter what I did! LOL!

So I went with Orchid as my non pink combo. Purple shades were recommended a few times, so figured why not. I will say in all, I am happy with this card. And I liked the layout. It gave a nice opportunity to create my own “patterned ” paper. I will have to try some of the other suggestions when my rut is over.

So here it is

Happy when skies are gray-


Why that title? I don’t know I love the song “You are my sunshine” and sing it when I use gray. SO that is my nifty name! LOL!

SO for this card I used my Daisy Dots  stamp set, as well as Simply Sentiments . You all know how much I love my flower images. Can’t get enough. This set will be available on Monday!!! YEAH!!! Gotta love all the New Lizzie Anne sets. On my must have list is the So Swirly and Blissful Blossoms. Dont have those yet, sigh. And a few others.

OK, back to the sketch-got a little carried away when talkin about rubbah! I stamped the large solid flower randomly in gray and orchid tone of versamagic ink. Another product I use constantly. Then used  a darker purple for the open lined flower.

The flower centers are the swirly circle done using my Glue Pad, and Martha Stewart crystal glitter.

Its really pretty IRL.

The cut out flower was colored using my NEW! Twinkling H2O’s. I know I must be a cave woman having *just* purchased them for the first time 2 weeks ago. I must say- I’m in *love* with them! They are just gorgeous. I love bling and these really rock. I got 2 sets of 6. Now I must find MORE! LOL! They are so easy to use too. So if you know where I can find some PLEASE tell me!

Anyway-the ribbon on this is 2 toned and its from Michaels. I tied it through the flower center. I must say I love doing that. I then stamped the “hello” from the same set, and punched it out with my 3/4 circle punch. Popped it in the middle of a clear Foo-fa-la button and was wicked pleased.

I added the “tabs” cause something seemed to be missing. I wont even tell you how long this card took to complete. I just let out a huge sigh of relief when I was done. Dont think you will be seeing any fabulous gray combo’s from me anytime soon.

Why I feel compelled to make things I dont really like work is beyond me. Next time I will just “get over it”. LOL!

So there is the challenge sketch! I hope you will have time to try it, and link it here. ONLY condition is you CANNOT use patterned paper in the large square panel! And you dont have to use a flower, you can try a circle or square image there in place. Have fun with it. It would make a great one to use with a OSW!

See ya tomorrow- more Lizzie Anne. Sorry I can’t help it. I really love the new sets.

I’m also gearing up for my next product review. Im having a hard time deciding- more suggestions always appreciated. maybe it will help me narrow it down.

Enjoy the holiday
