TOPS!



Hello fellow stampers and treasured readers! Just thought I'd pop in with some updates, and tell you about my interesting evening last night...

First, the card above is made with a stamp that I received in the mail this week from a friend. Thank you dear friend - you know who you are! I am going to enter this sweet little winged beauty at Charisma Cardz, and Caardvarks, where the challenge is to make a monochromatic card. Hope I can squeak it in with time to spare, but I'm not too sure! I am also going to enter it at One Stop Craft Challenge, their challenge this week is "Things with Wings". Oh... and I almost forgot - look at that beautiful PERFECT bow! My friend Shirley gave me a bow easy for my birthday! Am I good or what? Thanks Shirley!

DH Update: DH's doc appt. went well on Friday. We got beautiful color photos for our family album (lol), and doc thinks he's doing quite well. We go back in four weeks for another check up. We are very pleased about that. I've been a bit worried as the bruising is so deep and ugly and goes from knee to almost the ankle. Guess the kids are right - I worry uneccesarily! (That's what I get paid all of these beautiful gray hairs for, right?)

Computer Update: Nada. Nothing. Zilch. Our guy is working hard at it, but is having a bit of difficulty getting the new motherboard to work in the old computer. I will keep you posted. May have to buy a new machine yet...

Cardinal Update: Ugh... Bottom of the 6th - down 9-7 to Diamondbacks. And I stay up until the wee hours for this??? Sigh... (bet Caryl's up watching the Yankees)

So...I was asked to do a workshop for some ladies that meet in a neighboring town. They have a TOPS club (Take off pounds sensibly), and just wanted a bit of variation in their meeting. I took three very easy projects, and had them very much ready to go. Pop dots were on, redline tape was on and ready to peel off, etc. Only one of the ladies has done any paper crafting, so they were very pleased with their pretty things! Here is what we did...


Martha Stewart paper pack from Wal-Mart - Stamp is Inkadinkado.

This is a magnetic book mark! One little strip of two sided paper, and two pieces of self stick magnet that I bought at Wal-mart as well. Two sheets of 5 x 8 per package!


Yum! More Martha Paper...

Well, hope that you found something here that made you smile or drool!

Take care - hope to see you tomorrow!
