I need a beer!

Well at least for a card! I sure could use a cold one now but it's too late for me to start drinking. I would rather go to sleep tonight. My kids were super crabby tonight b/c they were up late last night and were up early today! I wanted to make a card tonight to post. So I headed over to Splitcoaststampers to check out the latest challenge. Here is my version for this challenge. I love just the "Sarah" paper from SU. Too bad it is retired. I think it is so sweet. I can't believe that this was the end of my stash too. What a bummer. Oh well, it's not like I don't have a ton of other paper to choose from for another project. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy.

Sunday Challenge

I finally have started to get back in the swing of things again. I'm so excited that I can do a challenge card this week. I gotta make this post quick b/c I'm sneaking in a few spare moments before the troops come rumbling inside and need a bath! I'm already hearing a basketball bouncing inside my house! I found some scraps of the Wild Wasabi paper and went from there. I was dying to try my new texture plate. I don't know if you can see it. I love those texturized plates.I apologize for not listing everything but it was all scraps I found in more drawer! As I was posting I realized that I have no saying on my card. Well, I'll have to figure out what kind of greeting it needs! Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy. It's off to bath time!

I'm finished!

Well almost. I have 1 more day at my rotation on Monday. I am in the process of finishing up my doctor of pharmacy degree (PharmD). I never would have thought that when I started in 2001 that it would have taken another 8 years to complete!! Of course I didn't know that I was going to have 3 children either! I should be graduating in May. I started my last rotation in March, that is why I have been absent. It is just to hard to do that and work a full-time job and have 3 kids. Hopefully I will get back to regular posts.
Today I took some time to enjoy our last (hopefully, keep your fingers crossed) day of winter! We made a snowman and the kids made snow angels. Then I got to sneak off to my stamp room and make a card for my mom's birthday on Friday. I'm sure that she won't be so amused by it but I love this new set.
It is "Golden Oldies" from the SU new mini catalog. I used some extra scraps laying around the long strip. I got the sketch from Clean and Simple. Check out that blog. It is so cool. The designs are so easy. I used Kiwi Kiss, Pretty In Pink, Regal Rose and Rose Red. I hope you enjoy. Thanks for stopping by!
