VMAAAPR08E - Weekend

There was a bonus challenge, posted by the Goddess herself, Linda!!!

Here is my weekend card. Yes, I am the pudgy diver. Look, no kids calling my name in that card....ahhh, bliss! Won't ever happen -- but it sure would be bliss! Plus, I used only my mosted favorite colors in the whole wide world!! The green looks a little wonky...I even tried taking the picture right under the OTT light (and on top of the mess...) but you will just have to trust me that it is a very pretty green.

You know, that mess under the card probably fits in with the weekend theme really well...there is an A Muse stamp, markers to be put away, the phone to remind me to catch up on all those calls...

VMAAAPR08D - Black & White

WHEW, I finally finished the last card! What pressure!!

Patterned paper by Junkitz, ink by SU!, ribbon & stamp by A Muse.

Did I mention it is my 40th birthday? Boy, this VMAA has been such a fabulous way to celebrate, since the hubby had to work.

oh...and I dyed my hair pretty darn red. Ha! Take that you "Albino Hairs"...

VMAAAPR08B Use Messy Glitter

Ok, had to go old school with the glitter. Broke out the Martha Stewart Glitter on the larger scallop, and on the doggie's little purse.


here is my first official VMAA card...

all stamps by A Muse, Patterned paper by TAC. Markers by Prismacolor.

No Time to chat....

I am hanging out with my buddies in the the A Muse Addict group...there is a Virtual Meeting tonight.

Before it gets going, I wanted to post the Warm up card I made...

Weekly Challenge #39: Life's Simple Pleasures!

Lookie Lookie!

Two blog posts in one week. Wowsers. Ya'll really must be feeling pretty special.

Here is a card that I knocked out for the A Muse Addicts Challenge #37 -- Lots of Dots.

If you look real close past the right side of my card, you just might be able to see the pile o'stuff on my desk. Heck, I am busy taking Mr. Snarky Pants to have a whole bunch of tests run, I work, I am helping DH remodel the you people want me to have a clean desk, too? Come ON! Some of you out there are getting way to bossy....honestly, be glad you have a pretty card to look at - ignore the mess. Please. Ignore it.

So, the patterned paper is from DCWV's Nana Kids line. The ribbon is from A Muse, and it is yummy. Colored the image with my Prismacolor markers.

I am back. With somethin' sparkly

Yes, I has been way to long since I have visited my very own blog. Life has been crazy around here. Next week, we have a ton of tests scheduled at Children's Memorial Hospital -- so hopefully, we can get past all this tuor business with Mr. Sassy Pants. Please cross your fingers for us, and say a little prayer...

In the mean time, my obsession with all things A Muse grows deeper. I have joined the A Muse Addicts group online, and I even just went on a little A Muse shopping spree the other day (shhh....).

Here is a little card for the A Muse Addicts - Stamp of the Week Challenge #10. It is hard to notice, but the scooter is raised on pop dots for extra fun - and the fenders have been stickled to sparkle :)
