Dawn McVey's card was my inspiration.

Papertrey Blog Hop 6/25/12

The challenge:
Green and yellow pillows with ruffles and pleats.

I struggled with this all day today, I had lots of ideas that when it came right down to it, didn't work.  I ended up making two cards.

This is the first card I made:

It's okay.  What grabbed my attention from the example photo was the back of the grey chair.  It looks really cool.  I am not sure if it is part of the chair or a throw but I like it. 

This is the second card:

 It okay too.  I think it is the color combo I am having trouble with.  I really like the Happy Day stamp set though I have used it on almost all of my cards for the last week!

Does your cat do this?

Smokey seems to be doing this more and more. For about the last year or so he has taken to laying on his side and now on his back. This picture doesn't really show that all of his legs are up in the air. It is the cutest thing.  He is as soft and fluffy at he looks too!

Five Question Friday 6/22/12


This week’s questions & My Answers:

1. What do you keep a stock pile of?
Nothing really.  I would like to have more tp & paper towels on hand but sadly the hubby says no.  We do buy ours at Costco in packs of 48 & 18 so it's not like we don't have some on hand, I just want to make sure we don't run out...

2. If Ben & Jerry asked you to invent an ice cream, what would it be?
First thing that popped into my mind was caramel apple pie.  I have never had it but is sounds good.  I also think that a kettle corn flavor would be yummy.

3. How do you blow off steam?
See answer #4

4. What would you do if you had an hour to yourself anywhere within a ten mile radius of your kids, no hubby, just you?
Grab a latte and head to the craft stores just to wonder around.  I look at almost everything in the store just to see it.  I don't usually buy anything that I don't need but it is just nice to see what else is out there that I might want to do in the future.  As long as there are not screaming little ones in the store, it seems to relax me.

5. When you were 16, what was your curfew in the summertime?
Sun-Thurs 10pm, Fri & Sat 12am that was the standard.  It changed based on what I was doing and who I was with.  RARELY did it change to a later time to come home...

Five Question Friday 6/15/12

(Special thanks to Melissa (@Melissa_M80), Tricia (@mamamarchand) from Mama Marchand's Nest, Pam (@trooppetrie) from Troop Petrie, Lindsey (@bloggerlinds) from A Dollop of My Life, and Tonya (@Tonyamaries) from The Heart Desires for their question suggestions!
The last question was from me!!!  That is so cool! Thank you Mama M!

This week’s questions & My Answers:

1. Would you grow your hair out to donate it?
I would if I could.  As someone who has Alopecia and wears a wig 24/7 I think it is an awesome gift for someone to give.

2. What song makes you think of summer?

Walking on Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves!  I can hear it anytime and it makes me smile and think of summer!

3. Are you a flip flops or sandals kind of person?
Flip flops if they don't make the flip flop sound.  Otherwise sandals.

4. Favorite summer treat (ie ice cream, snow cones, etc)?
Does Maragrita count?  If not, a mint oreo blizzard from DQ.

5. Do you do something special for the father of your children?
I usually make a card for my husband and that's about it.  When my son was younger, he and I made dinner and we worked on crafty gifts.  But now that my son is in his 20's I usually just tag along out to dinner.  It's kind sad cause those were some fun times.

"Just Us Girls" Sketch Challenge #139

I have been following JUGS for a long time but have never participated in any of the challenges but seeing this one today made me decide it was time to give it a try!

The layout challenge:

 This is my take:

Other than the pink matting, the brown card and the Stamped Merci, this is just one page from the matstack.  I think it turned out great and was really quick to put together!
