More Eat Cake Graphics & my Sony EReader


I will be sharing a few more cards I have created using my Eat Cake Stamps over the next day or two. I have to admit, that Eat Cake Graphics are one of my mostest favorite stamps in the world!!

I even have a few more that I have received, unmounted (yippee) and have not mounted yet on EZ Mount to use. Hopefully, I will get this done in the next day or two...

Off to the new job. Yes, after 8 years of letting stress keep me up at night, I have jumped ship. I am my 4th week at the new job, and still trying to get settled. It feels weird not being the expert, but I guess that is why there is not as much stress anymore.

Also, I got a Sony PRS-505 EReader this week to keep me busy! It is like the Kindle, without the Kindle pricetag. The package was a little damaged at Target, so I picked it up for a freaking steal!! I have found a great website, MobileRead that is a wealth of info about ereaders. Hey, I learned that I can download digital books from my local library, at no charge, to have on my reader for 2-3 weeks. If any of you guys get as giddy about technology (as well as free books) - post a comment to me. I would love to hear what other people have liked, about it all!!

I'm not dead. Really.

I have to apologize to my readers (reader?) that I have not been here in so long. I have started a new job, and life has just gotten away from me. But, hubby & the kiddos are all ok.


I am really going to try to do better. I will try to post a creation by the weekend.

Ha! I crack myself up...AMC02


HA!! Fat Bottomed Girls, we make the rockin' world go'round...Don't we???

The A Muse Lounge is sponsoring another A Muse Artstamp challenge. This one, was to be inspired by a song. Well, Jennifer used the song Bicycle by Queen. We are complete Queen fans in this house!! So, the Queen song list has been running through my head. Yes, I could have gone more subdued and picked Crazy Little Thing called Love, We Will Rock You, or even Flash Gordon.

...I could not think of a good way to do Bohemian Rhapsody...

So, Fat Bottomed Girls it HAD to be!

The paper & chipboard star burst is from DCWV Rock Star. I used the A Muse Lady Diver stamp. Used my Copics to color in some hair, Rose colored glasses, and the fine line Multiliner added some fishnets & stilettos! (I had to rock her out, right???) I colored in her swimsuit with black, and then went over it with my clear Spica glitter pen. The Earth (sorry, the best I could do) was paper pieced out of scraps. Her podium, was the base of the podium from the Announcer, and the top just hand drawn to fake it. Oh, also had to add my favorite A Muse stamp...the Rock Star.
