DP: Pennies for Pizzas

I know.

It's NOT a Christmas card!  I just needed a card for one of my favorite teens.  She's going through a rough time and has been on my mind quite a bit.  I think this image is PERFECT for a teen.  It's from Doodle Pantry's November release and it's called "Pizza Slice."  How yummy does it look?  Sadly as a diabetic, I can't have much yummy cheesiness but I can look (and steal toppings from my kiddo's slices when he isn't looking!)

Off to wrap presents.  Thanks for stopping in.

SSW2-38: DigiStamp Boutique


Hello Wednesday friends.  Is it just me or are the days flying by?!!  Yikes, there are only 8 days left before I have to be ready to go for Christmas!!!  Will I get my act together in time or not ... only time will tell!

Over on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 blog, we have another great sketch for you to try.  With all the squares, this card came together VERY quickly.

Our sponsor this week is Sally-Ann from DigiStamp Boutique and this card features her Jolly Snowman image.  Sally-Ann has some GREAT images on sale right now, I recommend a trip to her blog to see!

Christmas Chaos #4


This challenge is all about the recipe ... 1-2-3

I have:
1-image
2-fish tails
3-colored papers: aqua, yellow and white

Boom.

What I do NOT have is Christmas.  While making sure that I did all the challenges, I re-read the rules and apparently my cards SHOULD have all been about Christmas. (insert whimper here) Oh well, it's December and I still need other cards.  Soo, I won't be the Grand Poo-bah winner (sigh) Buuut, you did get to see me make 7 cards in 7 days (8 if you want to count the DT card I made.  I rock.

Bugaboo Christmas Chaos 7

The last card in the challenge.

I'm still going to finish the Bugaboo Christmas Chaos challenge, despite making 2 birthday cards.  Oops.  This card, however, is CAS (Clean And Simple) and Christmas.

I'm using a great image from Doodle Pantry's vast selection of Christmas images.  This is from the Quirky Snowman set.  Laurie has an entire collection of quirky critters.  I highly recommend a look-see.

Bugaboo Chaos (I've lost count what #)


Ken took today off so we are having a bit of a "date day" while the boys are in school.  He got to pick today's activities (I'm picking tomorrow's fun!) so far we've gone to Bass Pro to window shop and then we went to the gun range to shoot.  Despite being out of MY box, it was a fun morning (except for the hot piece of brass that ended up ricocheting down my sweater.  Ouch)

And speaking of out of my box and different, I wanted to try out this sketch.  It's soo different from my normal style.  I saw it on Karen Giron's blog and wanted to try it.  I actually like how it turned out.  I'm going to use THIS one as my funny card for the Bugaboo Christmas Chaos Challenge.

Bugaboo Christmas Chaos #5


It's another Bugaboo Christmas Chaos post.  I'm still one behind.  Today's challenge is to use a "critter."  Check and check. I am in love with my teamie, Linda's style so I totally CASE-d her card from the Sweet Sketch blog.  Check out her beauty here.

It's been a long morning so far.  The dog ate an ornament off the tree ... apparently the home-made ornaments are just plain yummy and can't be ignored.  I'm waiting for its second appearance.

On the way to school, the kids fought over whether it's better to have titanium armor or a titanium sword.  Really? Who cares ... just get IN the car!

But my day got seriously better when I found out that I had a free Starbucks drink waiting for me and there is a contest to win free Starbucks for life.  I must win this!
