I've been tagged again!! :-)  Adrian at Adrian's Crazy Life got me this time!!!  Here are seven things about me that you may or may not know:

  1. I don't like heights.
  2. I don't like English Peas.
  3. I LOVE ice cream!!  Peanut Butter Cup Perfection from Cold Stone Creamery is my favorite!!  I also love Bluebell Ice cream, but can't get it here in New Mexico.
  4. I'm allergice to dogs, but love them anyway!!
  5. I spend WAY too much time on the computer!!
  6. I love watching my two boys do whatever it is they're doing at the time!
  7. I love where I live--wouldn't want to live anywhere else!!

There you have it!!!  I can't find a single blog that hasn't been tagged, so I won't do that this time!!

Have a great day and happy stamping!


Just a card!!

Good morning!!  Well, tonight is a big game for Cameron.  If they win tonight, they'll be in the District 8 Championship game!!  We're very excited, and nervous!!!  Think good thoughts and send them our way!!Tkfitebm1

Here is a card I made with Baroque Motifs (what else!!)!  It also uses the Brocade Background Designer Paper.  It really is soooo pretty!  I like to use the designer paper because it chooses your colors for you!  This card uses River Rock as the card bas, then layered with Chocolate chip and then the designer paper.  The focal point is very vanilla, and stamped with Old Olive and Chocolate Chip ink.  I layered that onto Old Olive, then Chocolate Chip.  I used the paper piercer from the Crafter's Tool Kit to punch little holes all the way around.

For the eyelets at the bottom, I used my Cropadile!!!  This is one of the best tools invented!!  You can set it so that it punches the same distance in each time--notice how straight my eyelets are?!!  I love it!  Anyway, I used the vintage eyelets.  I like how it turned out!!


I've been tagged!!

Okay, I've arrived!! haha!!  Charmaine tagged me!!!  I was excited at first, but then realized that I have to come up with 7 interesting facts that you might not know about me!!  Well, here they are, but I'm not promising that they're interesting!! haha!!

1.  I lived in Spain for 5 years while growing up!  Dad was military, and we were stationed at Torejon.

2.  I've been married almost 18 years to my wonderful hubbie, Rich, and we have two very cute boys, Cameron and Brandon.

3.  I love baseball!!  Well, my boys' baseball!!  I love to watch them play!!

4.  Charles Barkley is my favorite NBA star--we got to see him play on my 30th birthday!!  (yes, he's been retired for a while--what's your point?!!)

5.  I've flown in an F-16!!  Again, for my 30th birthday!!  Actually, it just worked out that way!  My name came up on the list for a familiarization flight, and it was on my birthday--made for a very exciting 30th!!

6.  I love to gamble!!!  Las Vegas is one of my favorite vacation spots, but not as much fun when you take the kids.

7.  I love the stamping community--local, internet, etc.  Everyone is just so sweet!!  I've made a million great friends through stamping!!

Okay, now to "tag" some of my favorite blogs:

Just one more..............

Hi!  I had a few minutes to stamp, and some scraps laying around--I know, hard to believe there is anything "laying around" in my immaculate stamp room!!! haha!!  Anyway, I wanted to make a quick card, so I used the sketch challenge on SCS.  It's the same as the other two, SC131.  Go to Splitcoast Stampers to see all the challenges!  On the home page, just look in the right hand column--it will list the challenges by the day of the week.  Just pick on and click!!  They are so much fun!!  My favorites are the color challenges and the sketch challenges.  Haven't tried any of the others yet--maybe once the allstar tournaments are over..............

Allstars Update!!

Okay, this post has absolutely nothing to do with stamping!!  You've been warned!!  (now's when you run and hide!!)   I wanted to brag about my two wonderful boys!!!  Both are on allstar teams with their little league.  Brandon is on the Minors North team, and they lost their first game last Saturday.  BUT, they've come back and won two games--and boy, did they play GREAT!!!!  So, he plays again Monday!  He plays centerfield, and he is soooo fast!  Not many get by him!!

Cameron is my 12-yr old, and he's on the Majors Allstar team.  This is the age that can go all the way to Pennsylvania for the world series!!!  Well, they had their first game last night, and Cameron pitched!!  He did great!!  And, if you don't believe me, just click on this link:

Thanks for listening!!  Oh--and if you need a copy of the Tribune, don't bother--I bought them all!! hahahaha!!!
