wow, great candy... both the albums are great! April 28, 2008 5:33 PM
The brown album is going to Claudia
Great blog and blog candy. April 28, 2008 5:05 PM
Please email me with your contact information so I can get them into the mail by this weekend. Thanks for playing along!
Ok, off to finish watching Hell's Kitchen. Have a good night, everyone. Thanks for looking!

I have to face it, I don't scrapbook. I stamp, and make different stamping projects, but the idea of going back and scrapping the piles of photos in that box in my closet is just too daunting. It will never be done...
SO, this is lucky for those of you who DO scrap, as I have 2 scrapbooks to give away! The first is not a traditional scrap album, but is very cute. The front feautes a pair of overalls in a hanger, and it says "For Boy." The inside pages are ringbound - 3 rings on on top and 3 on bottom side of the page. But the pages themselves are blank card stock, separated by a sheet of tissue like paper.
The second is a brown leatherette/corduroy covered postbound 12 x 12 album. It contains 20 top loading pages and is acid, lingin, pvc free. You can easily find this type of refill pages, I think. This post will remain on top until tomorrow. Please leave me a comment if you are interested in one of these items. I will keep comments open until tomorrow (Sunday April 27) at noon EST. If there are more than one comment, I will use Random.org or have DS pick a name from a bowl. I will post the lucky recipients name tomorrow evening.
Thanks for looking!

I got some cardboard magazine holders, too. They were $2.00 for a pack of 5. They are holding my stamping and inspiration mags.
Well, my goal this morning was to drink a hot cup of tea. It has cooled off while I write these posts. Now I'm off to boil more water and clean up my desk so I can produce some cards today. I have a baby card that has been laid out all week and needs to be assembled, and some challenges to get to from this past week. I have neglected blogs and stamps all week, but the day is mine, so off I go! Thanks for looking!

The Rules for 7 Things:
1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
My 7 Things:
1. I love to garden, but I am a lazy gardener. At the beginning of the season, I am very excited to get things into the grounds, and can't wait for them to grow. But by mid-season, it's DH doing all the weeding and by the time I get around to picking the zucchini, they are the size of baseball bats!
2. Related to gardening, I am afraid of bees! I had a nightmare as a child in which all I could see were bees, and since then, I freak out if one comes near me. I try to be less reactive, especially with DS around, but it's a reflex.
3. When DH is out of town, I stay up waaaaaaaaaay to late, puttering in my stamp room and reading. When he is home, I feel like I have to adhere to a "reasonable" bedtime.
4. I eat way too much chocolate at work! My boss keeps a jar stocked with all kinds of chocolate on his desk, and I find excuses to visit his office so I can get a fix! It's a good thing his office is all the way across the library from mine...
5. I am very cheap! I'll spring for quality chocolate, or a nice dinner out (or stamping supplies), but for the day-to-day stuff, I cut coupons, look for sales and hate to pay full price for anything!
6. My favorite pizza toppings are eggplant and pepperoni! We get it every Friday night.
7. My favorite part of blogging is meeting so many people with similar interests!
I am going to propose that anyone who has not been tagged and wants to share their 7 Things are welcome to consider themselves tagged by me. I'll be back later with a card. Meanwhile, thanks for looking!

Here's a close-up of the flower, and you can see the glaze, too:Next, I wanted to use these gorgeous scraps of DP, but don't think the final product is quite up to snuff. I didn't have the right base card color, and settled for white. This was Cuttlebug embossed and swiped with pale yellow chalks. The sentiment is Studio G and the flowers are Primas, centered with Antique Copper Making Memories brads. Well, I have to work a bit in the morning tomorrow. Don't think I'll have a chance to stamp again until tomorrow night. The weather here is supposed to be gorgeous, so we'll probably get started on the garden in the afternoon. There is a lot of clean up to do before we can get ready to plant in a few weeks. But oh! to be outside in sunshine again!
Have a good weekend, and thanks for looking!

I got a few more cards made yesterday, and will post them later today or tomorrow. My girlfriend and her DD are coming over and we're going to take the kiddoes somewhere, if the rain doesn't start. I'm so in the mood to just go shopping, but DH has to finish the tile in the kitchen and DS doesn't have much shopping stamina.
Have a lovely Sunday and thanks for looking!

What a week at work! I posted a message to a regional listserv asking for copies of a book for a discussion coming up, and someone from another library chided me for such a request. AND she replied to EVERYONE on the list!! Totally unnecessary and embarassing, except for the fact that my request was successful and we'll now have enough copies for all our book discussion members. So there.
Ok, enough blathering. Here's a card I made last month and never posted. It was for DH's birthday. Fixafella is colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended. Some tools were colored with a silver metallic gel pen. The sentiment is from So Many Sayings, punched with the Word Window punch. The brads are Making Memories, and the metal photo corners are We R Memory Keepers. DP is Stemma, Husband.
Hopefully off to stamp a bit today after some house cleaning. Hope you are all having a beautiful Spring day!! Thanks for looking!

Right now they are running a contest with the current e-zine and I hope to get to it this weekend. For now, here are my cards:
I used Miss Elizabeth's dp from the dollar store, along with solid blue and green from my stash. The flower stamp is Lizzie Anne Designs and the bird is Studio G. The sentiment on the bird card is MFT Icing on the Cake. I used Colorbox Chalk inks and colored the flower with Prismacolors. The little bird is paper pieced. The ribbon is American Crafts and the brads are Queen & Co and Making Memories. The holographic flowers are from some candy I won. Oh, and I used my Mat Pack and paper piercer for the piercing, and the ticket corner punch, too. Seriously, it took me a total of about 1.5 hours to crank out all these cards!
Here's a close up of the little bird:
Last night I got to clean off my desk, which was littered with scraps and bits and bobs of things. Tonight I'm going to give it a rest and let it stay clean one more day. I'm tired and could use some couch time! I'll be back tomorrow with another post, I hope! Thanks for looking!

Have a great night - Thanks for looking!

Thanks for those that played my little guessing game. I played bit of roulette and also the slots. I'm not quick-thinking enough for blackjack and don't have a poker face. I watched Pai Gow but didn't get it - same with Craps. DH played a round of Casino War, and lost his money lightning quick. We didn't stop at Keno, either. I really just play to have fun and don't bet nearly enough to win big. I just try to prolong my playing time. Oh, and I did lots of shopping (Vosges chocolate store, Anthropologie, cool stores that aren't around here).
OK, so do you want to know who won?? Here is the result from Random.org:

I think you are a keno kind of person!

Jenna, please contact me (email is under my profile) with your mailing info and I will get the goodies out to you. I realize I never posted what they are, but they will be a fun surprise :)
I will give Jenna until Sunday night to contact me. If I don't hear from her, I will generate another winner!
Hopefully I will get some time to stamp later today. I am so tired, yesterday I crashed on the couch all afternoon and this morning slept until almost 10! Thanks for looking!
