Well I had to post this before it got too late. I still can’t believe it. I have some of the BESTEST Friends/Blog buddies and reader’s in the WORLD! Seriously-I am so blessed.

First the PSF’s create a Disney Make-A-Wish scrap book, and people send hundreds of cards, and amazing things in between to this!

If you read my blog regularly you know about my cockapoo Daisy. She is now 6 months old.  Now before her, I was not what I would call a “dog” person, but now I’m definitely a Daisy person!

When we first saw Daisy I fell in love with her! The worst part was “I” didn’t even want a dog-but she changed that!

Now I can’t imagine our family without her.

Who else gets that excited just to see you in the morning, or when you get them their food? No one in my house, but Daisy does! LOL!

I was SHOCKED, and FLOORED- when my PSF Kathie (and her fur babies Hazel, and buttface, I mean um, Mr. French (Hazel likes to call him buttface :C) sent me this AMAZING book for Daisy.

She gave me permission to post it. Kathie if you have it somewhere else, let me know so I can link it!

It was wrapped in a dog food bag-cut up (which was SUPER adorable) with dog paw ribbon and a dog bone! Should have gotten a photo, but I was TOO excited.

She even included the CUTEST letter from her furbabies! With a photo of them 😀

Kathie THANK YOU so very much for this gift. It is next to me everyday! I am in awe of its beauty, and the time, thought and talent that went into every page!

THANK YOU-Hugs, Kisses and Daisy drools!
Here it is-Enjoy!

daisy-2.jpg page 9-10 She included real toilet paper! LOL!

daisy-book.jpg page 11-12 Yes she is adorable-new haircut is looking great now too!!

daisy-book-1.jpg page 13-14 Yes-she is still naughty!!

I had to share every page with you!!!

Kathie was SO beyond sweet to take the time to make me a photo book of some of my favorite picture’s  have shared with you all here in Blog land, of my Daisy!!

I can’t imagine the time it took her to do this, and now I have to think of an OVER THE TOP, fabulous card to thank her with!

PLEASE leave your opinions as to ideas of a FABULOUS card I could come up with! It can be a stamp image, shape, any idea!!

Here is a photo of her in Noah’s room, after the re-make! She had to get in every photo.

This card uses- Boho Blossom, and Build a Bloom from —->HERE!

Well its the middle of the week-and I got my children’s class goodies DONE!! I was on a mission! I will post photos soon. Im on the RUN!

Yesterday, I had to fill egg’s for Amber’s class egg hunt. That was a disaster! Something simple, became so complex! I got like 3 different things that DIDN’T work to fit in my eggs.

Now WHY is it that when you NEED to find something-like a SIMPLE roll of stickers, an item that is usually EVERYWHERE when you DON’T need it, is NO WHERE to be found, when you do?

AND, why do people work at Michales have NO IDEA what CRAFT supplies are? Am I the only one who runs into this?

I mean “I” am pretty educated on craft stuff, and where things are in the store-but you can’t tell me where you would have a ROLL of stickers?! No NOT the $4 pack of scrapbook stickers-I need CHEAP, kids stickers. The same stickers I find in the $1 bin/toy section, everytime I take my kids, but yesterday when I went KIDLESS, were no where to be found.

This kind of thing-worker’s NOT knowing 1) Where something is, and 2) WHAT you are talking about, happens all the time!!!


Anyway, I made this card, since it was done with “my time”, and time was my “thought” behind it. I was in a tissy yesterday. I felt I was Time-Less! Only this card is great! IMO! 😀

I loved the sentiment.

I also never use green-like all green. Not pretty spring moss or celery green-just olive green. My unfavorite green. 

 I haven’t used this set in FOREVER-and love it! Plus I hate green, so rarely use maily those colors,so it was a nice challenge.

 I put my blocks together-then stamped my flower in white stazon, on the acetate, then layered over the squares!

Love the crisp, clean look.

Anyway, I was inspired after seeing the colors of some of the Summer stuff at Target yesterday…….which they were totally re-stocking the stamp/scrap isle’s with NEW!!! Goodies! I so wanted in but was seriously getting the evil eye from the worker :C She obviously did not get or appreciate my eexcitement-a NON paper crafter I’m guessing.

Anyway I left her to re-stock. I will hunt down new stuff tomorrow-when I am kidless.

Today I am off to Chemo with Alexa.

I am having a hard time with the thought of parting with my Candy Carrot Garden :C I LOVE that thing! I plan on bringing it with me today for the Staff in Oncology. They love things like that. I think they will appreciate it more that kids in Kindergarten.

As I said, Alexa has Chemo today, and we are due for a snow/ice storm. I hope our travel will be ok, since it’s and 1 1/2 hour drive-in perfect weather-no traffic.

On a HAPPY note!

Kim from MFT informed me that since it is the 20th-monthly MFT Day, she is having a sale!

YEAH!! Details below are copy/pasted from the thread you can find BELOW!!

How about a little *promo* that offers a discount on all orders, including Intl orders! Enter the code MFTDay0308 and receive a discount of $4.60 on your order! This is like offering free shipping on US orders under $40, but the discount will work on all orders, and those US orders over $40 get both free shipping (as usual) AND the discount! This offer extends of course to our valued Intl customers and there is no restriction on what is purchased!
Here are the deets:
*During your oder process, use the coupon code MFTDay0308 and receive a $4.60 discount on your order total

*There are no product restrictions, but note that some items are currently out of stock and the coupon can’t be used on those items

So RUN don’t walk! We all love a sale right?

OK I really need to run-so I’ll be back later to post my Dirty Challenge. It MAY have to wait till tomorrow-bear with me!
