Cosmo Cricket Candy

I have to tell you that Cosmo Cricket is my current favorite scrap company. I love the papers! I love the embellishments! I love it all! Life As Lou is giving away $150 worth of product on her blog. (If you win you can send me some product too. :) )

Here is a recent card I made using the Cogsmo line:

Snowy day and a card

Woke up to about 2 inches of snow today. It's pretty but I don't like to drive in it. It does look more like Christmas time now though.

Here is a card I finished tonight. The stamps are Marth Stewart.

Black Friday recap and blog candy

So I ventured out this morning for a few deals. I didn't go until around 9 but the traffic and people were still out. My Mom graciously offered to drive me so I didn't have to drive in the messy traffic. I am super thankful she did because I would have been really stressed out. We both got quite a few deals at Menards. Lots of the items we really wanted were gone but we still managed to have a loaded cart. My Mom got an awesome deal on some fleece at Mill End. I got some really good deals at Down Memory Lane. The absolute worst place was Michael's. What a zoo! No carts left, the line was super long and people were pushy. I did manage to get a Basic Grey Christmas paper pack and a new punch but I guess the paper pack was on sale. I am planning on going back tomorrow. Hopefully it's calmed down a bit. Overall it was a good day for shopping even with the extra people.

One last attempt at the challenges on Angelosity. This was the first sketch that was posted on Oct 20th.

Hip Hop Hangover

I made this Joy card for Hip Hop Hangover. The stamps are from the Batch of Bitty Fun kit from Unity Stamp Company. I used a Cuttlebug folder to emboss the background. You'll find more Hip Hop Hangover links on the Unity Blog.

halloween cards

I made several cards similar to these but they represent the main "style" I used. The black cardstock is embossed with the swiss dot folder from Cuttlebug but it's hard to see in the photo.

Unity Stamp Company

For a long time I have been reading Triple the Scraps blog and I look at her beautiful work. She talks about Unity Stamp Company often. I have looked around their website a few times and they have some very nice stamps. Well today I was drawn in with their Hip Hop Thursday deals and I placed my first order. Now I can't wait until I see what the stamps look like in person! I had so much fun hopping from blog to blog and I really enjoyed all the eye candy. I can't wait to hop again next week!

What kind of fruit are you?

You Are a Banana

You are mellow, easy going, and a total softie on the inside.

People find it really easy to get along with you. You suit most tastes.

And while you're very sweet, you're not boring or ordinary.

You have an attraction to the exotic, and you could show up anywhere... doing almost anything!

You are spirited, energetic, and a total kick to be around.

You're also quite funny. Your sense of humor is on the goofy side, and it fits you well.

Interesting Visit

We had an interesting visit last night. I guess early this morning. We heard pounding on the door around 12:30am. I got up and saw a face in the window that I didn't know. (Why do a million things go through your head in a few seconds? ) It was a police officer. My stomach dropped! I was just shaking when I opened the door. He said a 911 call came in from a phone number that registered to our address. It was not our number. He asked me all kinds of questions and then left to check at our neighbors downstairs. I could not stop shaking for a while. So I am pretty tired today.
