One more before my tutorial

I just had to make one more of the index holders.... I used the same colors that I used yesterday for the thank you card, with the DSP from SU.... I really like the lavender lace and the certainly celery together... It looks great, this time I put 2 eyelets to pass the Ribbon through so it can wrap around the front, that is how they made the one I got from target... It is suppose to be elastic but I still can't find one that I like I am still looking just haven't found time to go to the store... class this evening again...

The one on the top is the back of mines and the bottom picture is the one from target...the one from target as you can see has an elastic I put a ribbon with the eyelets... thank you for taking a look... till tomorrow... Have a nice day!

No Posting,Sorry

Sorry that I haven't had a chance to Post ... I been a alot busy, Monday I needed to go food shopping and then I had to go home and clean after that it was time for HW with kids, then dinner and last but not least I had to go to class... Class is going is very interesting
Everybody that I tell that I am going to EMT training they say that it is a stressful job... and then they processed to tell me why I choose to do that... I hate that because sometimes it discourages me... But I am sticking to it.... We just learned how to open an airway and what we need to do it with a type of situation when someone has a pulse but is not breathing... and we learned how to take blood pressure... that was my first time learning how to take a BP so it was exciting, it is exciting to learn everything we have been doing.... Now for the last two days , I had to just study because we cover so much in a very fast and short time, we only meet two times a week and for 4hrs... Oh yeah, and yesterday my house was messy and I had to do a very fast cleaning my friend was coming over to stamp with me and it went very fast because and we didn't get a chance to finish our project, by time I knew it I had to go and pick up my kids they all three had dental appointments... and then I had to rush home to do HW with the kids and get ready to go to class .... So hopefully today I get to sit down and play with my stamps lets keep our fingers crossed... Hopefully I get to post later!!!! I have to go and get my kids ready for school this morning...thank you for stopping by...

My Scrapbook Page

Hi all!!! Sorry I didn't get to post yesterday, but I had to study we are covering CPR now... I can't believe how much they cover in such little time... So that means when I am not in class I have to study at home so, I can be ahead of the game... Class is going well for does that know and read my blog... thank you to all that visit.
So back to what I was talking about ... I was telling you about class and how it's going I should tell you one thing that I didn't know that EMT's work 12 hour shifts.... I guess I was the only one on earth that didn't know...After I found out from my instructor how the shifts work out... I was in shock... and when I came home and told my family and friends they said, "everyone knows that"... and they just all laugh at me :( .... Well enough about class... I actually have a workshop tomorrow Woo Hoo!!! I haven't done one in a while ... But the hostess doesn't want to do cards ... I almost started crying when she said that... She just wants simple scrapbook pages... Then I said to my self I am in trouble, because I really don't scrapbook... I just started to do it so I am not to good at it... Well she wanted a baby boy and baby girl, pages ... This is the baby girl of course the little girl in picture is my daughter when she was only 17 months old... She used to chew everything this is a wooden slide she had in her room in NY... and I caught her looking at the handle then chewing and then she found out that I caught her chewing away and she yelled with the innocent look ... I just love the progression of the pictures I took ... Well one thing I have to say about doing a scrapbooking workshop, I get to scrapbook some of the pictures that I have put away in a box... Tomorrow I will post the scrapbook page I made for my oldest when he was about 9 months old he was a cutie.. and my first... Well see you all tomorrow... Oh yeah I forgot to tell you what I used to make my scrapbook page... Here is the Recipe
I used pretty in pink, certainly celery, and barely banana, SU CS then for the stamp set I used Pick a Petal.... and some more bling on the flowers... Enjoy ... and Thank you for stopping by...

Simply Simple

I made this card very simple ... My reason for making it simple, it's for a family member that is turning 60 and she is very elegant to me the card is some what elegant to match her...I used the Three for you punch box from SU... and for the saying I used "too much of a good thing is a good thing" from Time well Spent... and in the inside I stamped "Happy Birthday"... I stamped out the flowers with the punch and I stuck a piece of basic grey CS to cover the punched flowers in the inside of the card... then I punched out the flowers for the outside with black CS... and glued some dew drops in the middle of the black flowers... glue the black flowers some what in the middle of the punched flowers to give it character and added the ribbon to the card... The ribbon I got yesterday at Big lots for a dollar for 5yrds... and I liked the colors too, so that was a plus...
I am fighting with my self thinking if I really like the card or not... I think the reason I am not liking it to much, because I used to simple colors black and white... I feel I could have added more ... but who said more is better... not always...... But my hubby thinks it is nice ... that is the word he used "nice" ... so that makes me think twice about my card :( .... well maybe I will be back tomorrow trying to come up with something else, I have till the end of the week before mailing it out to her... so lets see what happens... till tomorrow... I have to take out some time to study :(

I looked at her challenge and I just starting imagining what I was going to do ....I had already knew which stamp set I wanted to use ... I used SU Hostess ...Time Well Spent... For my CS I used SU Pretty in Pink and Lavender Lace... I started out stampin the butterflies on the white CS and colored and the I stamped the butterfly again and colored..Oh yeah I colored with crayon pencils... I like to use Stampin up pure color pencils and I use Ergo soft color pencils I just love my color pencils... After coloring I cut out the butterflies and curved the wings and glued the middle only on top of the butterflies on the white CS... to give a 3-d look... I used the saying in the same set...and I used some Bling on the saying ... sorry my picture is poor I don't know my camera has a mind of it's own sometimes... Who knows ???

WSC43 Beates Weekend Challenge

Guess what everyone I got to post again today... Yah! I ventured out and I tired Beate's Weekend Challenge... Here is what I came up with I used Basic grey and Certainly Celery SU CS... The stamp set I used is Big pieces from SU... Again this is a new set that I never used...
I have been doing a lot of that using sets that I have brought in the past and just never used them ... I think this is why i love blogging because it gives me a purpose to use my sets and to share my work... I stamped the flower with certainly celery and then I cut it out and I curved up the petals to give it some dimension then I put some BLING to it that I brought from Michael's...They kinda match the certainly celery .... for my saying I used Holidays and Wishes SU stamp set... I used the solid circle from Big Pieces and then I stamped the saying on the top...
and again I couldn't resist to put so more BLING to it... Enjoy!

Bugs and Kisses

Well everyone I had a kinda busy day today, and when I say busy ... with the kids it seem they wanted everything under and over the sun.... since the time they woke up.... Every time I sat down someone wanted something or needed something... Then my husband had to go to work for while... but when he came home I told him to take his daughter to go and see Mims Island... I think I spelled it correct....Mims Island.. she had been bugging all week to take her to see it...
And when they left it was just me and the boys... they get along better when Leah is not home... but they still bugged me every moment .... I want a sandwich or ice cream or etc, etc, etc and etc.....
Sometimes I wish I had a Cook, Maid, and a Nurse... Oh yeah and a driver to drive everyone everywhere.... Ahhh ... I can dream...
Well enough lets take about my card I copied this one from the Stampin' Up Catty... I changed just a bit... I put a little spin to it... not to much used the same colors but I designed it a bit different... Hope you guys like it....
Card Recipe:
SU CS: Bashful blue, Brilliant Blue, Only orange, Gable green
I used 3-d dot to pop out the dots and the bottom and the top and the saying, and the worm...
Hope you guys like it...
