Uh oh!

I am suffering from a migraine :c My body is catching up with my brain! After I am done this Im going to tak e nice HOT bath, then go to bed. I think I need it.

I had so many plans to upload my blog posts and my usual chatter but I’ll be lucky to get the NEED to do’s done! Plus I have TONS of running around tomorrow and won’t be home ALL day. Like from 7 am to 6 pm-gone! So I need to get these posted now.

Meet the Glam Girlz! New set from C.C. Designs being released the 4th! YEAH!

I just love her. She is simple and cool. I used a star die cut from my Cuttlebug to make a mask, stamped her in green, then lightly sponged her. The stars are DCWV glitter stack. Love it!

This is Gwen. Christine sent me a little “kit” of paper and accessories I had to stick to, as a challenge. This is the result. “something” is missing! After typing this up I went and placed a circle sentiment, in the upper left corner that said You are Darling. If I had the energy I’d get out all my photo stuff and retake the picture, but I really can’t.

Now lastly we have Frankie

you-are-fabulous.jpg She is just so retro 70’s o me!

So I used my Hippie Chic paper by SEI! Love the bling eye glasses!! Those came in a DROP DEAD fabulous package from my secret friend. She made 3 of the most gorgeous frames of my kids-EVER!! Should be in a magazine. They deserve their very own post, and I need Jay to hang them for me (so they are actually straight) and then I will post a photo.

I got some other yummies in the mail from some of my reader’s here-WOW!! Ill post those too, but when I have time to chatter!

Well I hope you liked the samples of the peeks!

Dont miss the ATS blog for blog candy!!! Each day a new chance to win 😀

I’d love to hear which one you think is your favorite!

OK my bath/bed are hollering.

PS They still haven’t posted the sample that won, so I have no idea!


A little bird told me….

That it is time for another peek!! And to dish some fun news 😀


But first, about the card!

How cute is that owl? LOVE IT!!! This is another peek from Pink Cat Studio Party Farm Animal set. I love it! Check out the PCS blogtoo, for Blog Candy and the other DT member’s samples.

I think this owl is my favorite image from the set. How can you not love it?

I had so much fun making this card. I love owl’s, I love circles, I love rub-on’s, I love scallops, I love pink & brown, and I love home-made dew drops! LOL!

Can you tell I love it?

Now onto my early Birthday gift that was unexpected!! NO IT WAS NOT THE CRICUT!! I told you “unexpected”!

My dear blog reader & PSF Dee, sent me info about this contest to win the entire Clip it up system! You had to send in 3 cards. I wasn’t sure I should enter because I HATE contests!! Much more than submission rejections! LOL! She kept telling me to go ahead, and try. Me being the “you miss a 100% of the chances you don’t take, and I definitely won’t win if I don’t try”, did listen and went ahead and submitted. I forgot all about it actually.

Anyway, while I was out I got a message from Renee at Simply Renee, and I won in the friend category! How cool is that, that I will FINALLY get the Clip it up! Plus my card is going to be used in their advertising!! WOW!!! That is just as cool as winning something 😀

Thanks Dee for forwarding that to me! I would not have found that out, otherwise.

The card should be posted on their site, later today! Ill let you know. I sent three, like asked,  so am unsure which was the “winner”. I will post again later-plus I have to finish another sneak peek sample.

FYI-my Craft Critique article is being posted TOMORROW! DUH! I swear it got moved! LOL!

Lastly, here is my Class Schedule for the day. None of the items have ever been done here! Totally fresh and new, using some of the newest products and hottest paper lines out there. I truly love each piece that I created, and am proud to share it with anyone who decides to attend.

Thanks to Michelle for helping me get it all priced and organized. Im just clueless!

Michelle will be posting this to her site SOON!!! So I will post my class descriptions here.

 I know she was feverishly working and waiting on me to update her classes for May. You can see that HERE! So make sure you sign up if you want to go!

NOTE: (this is being very wishful! LOL!) If a class fills, and seems popular, I will repeat it the following month, if there seems to be enough interest.
