Cowboy Card

Well, it had to soon as I got the harddrive replaced on my laptop - it died again. Toshiba thinks that it is the motherboard. So, it will cost more money. Of course it will!

We went ahead and got me a new laptop! Yippee!! This is super sweet, a 17.5" screen -- very swanky! I lost everyone's email, drop me a line at, if you ever want to hear from me again. :) Now, I just have to get more familiar with both Windows Vista and the feeling of having a full size keyboard. Until then, prepared for typos...

In the meantime, here is a card that I made with the new box of goodies that I received as my starter pack from The Angel Company. When I chose him...I thought that he was cute. Now that I have used him...I am in love. I want to have more reasons to use him. I want to plan cowboy parties. I want to go to the rodeo and travel to Texas. I want a big strong cowboy, with his own set of spurs...Wait...maybe that had nothin' to do with stamping...

It's ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!

My laptop...I mean!!

Yes, Lappy was out of commission for the last few days. I installed a new hard drive (almost all by myself even!) and reinstalled the software...and he is now as new as he was in 2004. Minus all my pictures.

Still working on recovering those, but I do not want to depress us all by going there. Yep, all the pictures from Guatemala & meeting our son for the first time. Please, just cross your fingers and your toes for us. I have not given up yet!!

In the meantime, I got some of the greatest new stamps from Eat Cake Graphics. Wow, Holly over there, is as sweet as she can be!! Her designs are fun, fun, fun!!

Wanna Play Doctor?

Whooo!!! Two posts in one day!! Amazing!!

Well, yesterday was busy around here. Not only did I get my new racks hung for my A Muse stamps (c'mon, you have to admit, those are too cute to put away in a box...), but I also got an order from Ebay of 4 stamps. And, shhh...I stopped by a stamp store at my lunch hour and brought home a couple more.

I am out of control.

But, hey, at least I am using them. Right? Of course I am!! Here is the fun card that I made for hubby!! It is a tri-fold card, so there are three pics to view.


Stamps by A Muse...WW crayons by SU!...Embossing powder, is a custom color of 2 blues and a silver I mixed, patterned paper by Rob & Bob Studios, white & green cardstock from Office Depot (I forgot the brand...) and blue cardstock is from the Bazzill Bling collection.

New A Muse Storage

Even though, I was just a SU! Demo....and I will be *officially* faxing in my TAC paperwork today...a big piece of my heart belongs to A Muse.

There is a new fun thread over at SCS dedicated to A Muse, and some great girls there have even formed an A Muse fan club on Yahoo.

I wanted to share the new fun storage that I picked up this weekend for my little A Muse collection. (warning, I know 4 other stamps snuck in there...but, hey....). I got these little wire desk organizers from Target. I think that they were around $8. Don't-cha think that this is their true calling in life??

Sorry about the brightness, these are hanging right next to the is a better close-up. you see the big problem? Yep! There is still space left open!! What am I thinking...must get shopping :)
