Friday Fill-in

I hoping doing these things will help jump start my blogging. You can find the Friday fill-in here. I found this though Angie's blogs and I thought it sounded fun! Turns out it's harder than I thought. lol we go! 1. Why do we have to deal with yucky stuff? 2. Wii and water are now habits. 3. I have way too much to do. 4. I had never heard the phrase "Pokey Dokey!" and it cracks me up! 5. Procrastinating the way I always do. 6. How was I to know that everything would fall apart at the last minute preventing me from getting all the things done that I needed to do. 7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to the online crop at All Moments Remembered, tomorrow my plans include Wii with the girls and Sunday, I want to go to church. It's been way too long! I should have lots to share with you soon craft wise. There is a cpor tonight over at AMR and that always gets me going. Here a couple of recent card though: This one was for a white space challenge over at AMR. I used all SU! product. This one was also a challenge over at AMR. It was to use two pattern papers with different colors but the same pattern. I used my Raspberry Tart DSP. I saw this design over on Di's blog and just had to try it. Hers is way better though! lol Normally at this point in the show I would say lo long and show a cute kid pic but this time I'm going to show a few pics of my very handsome nephew. He is actually making this guitar himself. I cherish these photos since it will be a really long time before I get to see him again. I miss him terribly.

Gettin' on the ball!

So I really am trying to get on top of things over here. It's amazing that I used to be so organized. That time in my life seems so long ago now. I am doing a bit better though! lol
I haven't done a whole lot in the last few weeks because I was down in Sacramento dealing with some family issues. While down there I did get to go to a meeting with my SU! upline! That was very exciting. I ended up getting an award for being the top seller in the group! I was so shocked! My mom was so excited she almost cried. lol It was so fun to get to meet all of my demo sistas. I also helped my mom design a couple of cards for her class. It was tons of fun working with her. I didn't take any photos of them though! Ugh!
I did take a photo of a card I made last night. It was for the card challenge of at AMR. The challenge was to use green in your card. Here's mine:
Just a simple 4x4 note card. I used all SU! product on this one including my new Top Note die and Sizzix Texture Plates. I think I'm really gonna like those babies! This card was so stinkin' easy to put together. I thinking about making it a "no stamp" class.
Paper: Whisper White cardstock base, Old Olive textured
cardstock, Old Olive 12x12Design Series Paper. Accessories: Old Olive 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon and brads, Top Note die,
Sizzix Texture Plates and Spiral punch.

Oh and here's some cute kidness...
