Happy Leap Day!!

Lookie here! 2 post, 2 days, 2 cards! Am I on a roll now?? Doubtful. LOL

These cards another "steal". I know I used to be able to "copy" a card but make it my own, know what I mean? Nowdays, I seem to just steal the whole thing & the only differnce may be a color change. I need to take "inspiration" from these cards instead of doing them exactly the same way. Oh well. It is a cute card & why mess w/perfection??? I'm going to give these cards to my co-workers today. I didn't get a chance to make them VD cards so, these ought to make up for it, don't you think??

I guess I can get partial credit for taking the idea and making these bag toppers?? I decided to give these to the kids & dh today. Dh was almost a Leap Day baby: he was born in 64 which was a Leap Year & his mom was getting VERY worried when the 27th rolled around & still no baby. Luckily, she had him that day instead of the 29th. The kids wish that he WAS born on Leap Day so they would be "older" than him.

Hmmm, these photos seem very washed out. I wonder why. I turned the flash off & they looked pretty good when I shrank them. Ok, I checked; you can click on the pics for more detail.

Happy Birthday Scott!

Yesterday was Scott's Birthday. Unfortunately, my dear hubby is out of town on business. He spent his birthday working & then had to go out to dinner, ALONE. And then go back to an empty hotel room. The kids thought I should have figured out where he was going to dinner and then call the resturant, describe him well enough that they could go over & sing Happy Birthday to him. I didn't. But, to make him not feel so bad, the kids and I went out & celelbrated his birthday without him. LOL.

Here is the card I'm going to give him tonite when I pick him up from the airport. I pretty much outrighted copied it from this video. The only thing I changed is the cardstock color (I'm in a HUGE Certainly Celery phase right now plus, I'm boycotting all In Colors!) and, since I didn't have the yummy Chocolate ribbon (although I do have some yummy chocolate!), I improvised. I think it made it a bit more "manly" anyway.

Why does the Choc Chip c/s look so purple??? ICK! It's cuter IRL, I promise!!! Ther ribbon, teh medallion & the cardstock all match. And the green is not quite so "sad" looking!

Fear Not

I have not forgotten my blog. I even have new pics to post but, my camera & my computer never seem to be in the same room. While you wait for me to get my act together, I will share my recent Archiver's purchases with you. Now, this purchase is in addition to the $200 worth of SU products I rec'd last week, the $70 worth of SU I ordered a week and 1/2 ago & the $60 worth of SU I orderd last Saturday. I think I'm unwell!
