Well arent you all so sweet!

Its so funny cause EVERYONE always ask’s me HOW I do it-all of it.

I think its funny. Don’t we all just do what we have to do? I don’t feel like what I do is abnormal.

 Balance life, kids, house, hubby and hobby. I thrive on continuity-as do my children. We have a schedule. No, not a time schedule, but a way things work here, that doesn’t really vary much. 

 I’m just a born multi-tasker. I’m use to doing a million things at once. I seriously cannot do “nothing”! If I’m not busy, I get anxious. It’s seriously from my mother’s side of the family.

Its the HOBBY that keeps me sane. I love the madness of assignments and being allowed to just do what I love. It holds me together and helps me de-stress. Stamping has saved me many days. Its my time away where I don’t “THINK” about anything.

New stamps and Happy Mail are especially de-stressing for me 😀 I think its going to be a good week.

Did you know that All That Scraps has Nestabilities now? Yes! You read it correctly! As well as a bunch more COOL stuff-you MUST check out.

That being said I have 3 Elzybells  samples to share with you.

I did not get one done with the Elzy in bed, but I will this week OK!

I’m not in a chatty mood-maybe thats good? So you don’t have to deal with the blah blah blah to get to the eye candy! LOL! I’m just exhausted.

So ,the MOST requested image as a card-was the girl on the swing! But I made 3 samples just for you!

elzy swinging Hi There

Is she not adorable? Did I ever have FUN coloring her! This card is 5 1/2 squared.

It really was a quick color.

The “Hi There” is Essential Sentiments. Paper by American Crafts (local store), and the dotted embossed vellum was done with my Fiskars texture plates. Ribbon is from Target ($2.99 15 yds), tag I made using Making Memories tag rims.

elzypup Paws Down

This one is my most favorite!!! I so love that poochie!

I got that, and the paw prints!

 Not my usual colors, but I liked how by doing black/gray for the base, I could make the rest ANY colors I want, and they would just POP off the card! I had to make the bkgd “dirty”, like it was tracked upon.

The bone/sentiment are a CTMH set (unsure too tired to go look-if you MUST know, email me).

a phone call away A phone call away

I had to use googlie eyes on Elzy! This is a great card for a long distance friend who you want to keep in touch with! Or hey, even a secretary!!

I loved this ribbon.

The flower was stamped in co-ordinating versamagic ink.

Not too much to report. I do have ALOT to share this week, and plan on posting again today. We will see how my time works out.

Also, in honor of Veteran’s Day, let me extend my condolences for those families of those who have fought for our country, and lost their battle. I cannot imagine dealing with such a loss. Also, if you are a military family-thank you for going through all you do, so we may maintain our freedom.

I know I never say much about that stuff on here, but I do think about it, support the troops, and feel for the families.

OK I’m off.

So till later. I have been tagged days ago, have thank you’s to post, and a ton more 😀

Happy Stamping 😀
