Celebrate you 2!

It's been a while since I've posted. My children got me addicted to this computer game. It's called Zuma! Ugh! I can't believe how much time I've spent playing the dumb thing. I've gotten nothing else accomplished. Ha! That's not really true but it feels that way. I've actually been quite busy. I'm now a volunteer at 2 schools! Yowzaa! It sure keeps me hopping. Plus, I'm making a special something for one of my cousins first baby. Not nearly as time consuming as I had originally thought but definitely not easy either. I'll post a picture of it after it's been sent to Indiana and received. I don't want to give it away here. Then, last week Mark got his glasses. But I've been talking about that for a while now. Doesn't he look like the most intelligent kid on the planet? I'm not prejudice or anything either!!!!!

Of course, I had the 2 FUN shops that I had to get into the company before the end of September. Now, I'm preparing for the Completely Christmas class this Friday @ 7. We will be doing 10 projects. 2 cards, 2 gift card holders, 2 ornaments, 2 gift bags, and 2 surprises. Plus, my cousin Jo Ann is coming into to town to visit with me. She's going to help me with the class too. She's high energy and fun to be around. If you're coming to the class, you'll love her. If you haven't all ready rsvp'd, please do so!

Now, on to what you've all been waiting for: ta da! The card! Again, this is from the FUN shop of last week. This is the final card of that grouping. No more Just like dad paper for a while. I hate using things until I get burned out on them but that's exactly what I did here.

Supplies used: v - 925 Just like Dad, tt - 205 reflection blue palette ink, v - 108 blue 1 card stock, t - 2882 all occasion icons, and I'm not sure where the beige card stock came from but if I had to guess, I'd say Michael's.

Simple, straight forward and way too plain for my taste. I'm not a big fan but it could be jazzed up. I think I was just brain dead by the time I got to this one. Maybe burned out too. Who knows?

Remember to check out the new links at the bottom of the page. TAC is having a new contest. You could win the Roxie/Moxie paper collections and other coordinating items. The October SOTM is out and don't forget to check out the fall supplement.

Only one more inspirational post until blog candy! Can you feel the excitement?

Hope your Monday was marvelous.

Mark looks awesome in his glasses, totally studious.

This card looks great, I like how you s-t-r-e-t-c-h the patterned paper so you can make multiples of the card with one sheet of the paper.

It looks like Mark is happy with his glasses... I remember hating mine when I was young!

Love the card... Simple Is Good.
