No Cruise for me

Hello Everyone,
I know it's kind of late tonight but I got a little busy catching
up with some old friends. Earlier today I was thinking of some
of the bloggers that I follow and was wondering how they are
doing on the Provo Craft Cruise that they all started on today.
All of those on the cruise will be gone for like 9 days, Hope
they are having fun. Since some of us couldn't afford to go I
thought that maybe we could have a little fun here. In the
header picture is the Winter Wonderland cartridge that Michele
from Magical Creative Inspirations will be giving away on 3/3/11
The next picture is of some blog candy that Audrey from
Peace, Love, & Crafting is giving away. Go to her blog at and read what you have to
do to get in on her giveaway.
The last picture is of another Cricut cartridge that you can
Once Scrappy Scavenger does someone will win this cartridge. Have fun everyone!!!!!!! Good luck to all.
Have a Splendid Evening!!!!!!!!!

Eye catching

Hello Everyone,
I joined an Etsy just the other day team in hopes that it will help
promote my shop and that maybe I can help promote other shops.
The team I joined is " Show Me Love " . When I joined there were
only about a dozen members but it's slowly growing and it has
doubled in numbers. The header picture comes from one of my
team members Ashryla she has just opened a shop and she has
wobbiesandwondrs as one of her favorites. I was looking at at
wobbiesandwonders items when I found the flannel stroller blanket
and fell in love with it. I think that the reason I love it is because
I want spring to hurry and get here. The colors just reminded me
of spring. It's a very cold day here today temps in the teens. Ashryla
still hasn't posted anything for sale yet but hopefully soon we will see
her wares.
The next photo comes from another one of my team members who
works with paper and digital cards. This card done by lissylee77 is
so adorable. The card which is a birth announcement with the cute
babies caught my eye. Last but not least is CatchAStarCrafts. Her French inspired vintage
tags are eye catching to me. I just thought I needed to share them.
It just amazes me all the talent that is out there. I have been working on some projects and as soon as I can I will get them
posted. Until then I hope everyone is having a warm, safe, and Splendid
Day !!!!!!!!!!!

Crazy woman

Hello Everyone,
I know it's kind of late in the evening but I finally felt
like I had all my marbles collected. This morning I
woke up feeling somewhat like the header picture.
Not wanting to open my eyes and see the world.
I had several things today that needed to get done
and I wasn't looking forward to it since it meant
that I would be spending some time in my car
and guess what???? The heater quit putting hot
air out and it was a cold day today. Just in thinking
of that it made me feel like the picture below.
I know that many of times we have all heard that
the appliance repairmans wife always has her
appliance broke down. Just like the auto repair-
mans wife always has he car broke down. My
husband is a mechanic do you see what I'm
getting at???? That's why some times I feel
like the picture below. So tomorrow I will take it upon myself to fix my car
if there is no snow on the ground. So wish me luck.
Tomorrow is a new day. Hope you all had a Splendid Day.

3-D Card

Hello Everyone, I didn't want to post some of the cards that I had made until I knew that they had been received by the recipient because I know that they visit my blog occasionally so for the next few days you will be seeing those cards. The card that you see in the header picture is one of them. I didn't get a picture of it in a side view which I regret now that it's gone but hopefully the recipient will get one to me. It's a dimentionl card kind of 3-D. I've also decided that I will enter it in the "for the Love of Chocolate" challange hosted by Creative Accents. To see some of the projects that have been entered go to The next picture is of the heart cake that I made for my husband. He really enjoyed it.
Here again is my card that I made. I am not to happy with
the program that I am now using to upload my pictures so
I was wondering what program other bloggers are using and
what the thoughts are on those picture programs. I would
really like to get some input from everyone. Materials:
Black cardstock
White cardstock
Red Roses scrapbooking paper
StazOn ink
Fiskars "Forever" rubber stamp Studio G rubber stamp Pearls from Queen & Co.
Ultra thick embossing enamel
Shear red ribbon
Thank you for stopping by and Have a Splendid Day !!!!!!!!!

Blog hop and computer crash

Hello Everyone,
Last night I was on a blog hop which was being hosted by
"The Pink Stamper" that had a challange to win
some blog candy. I worked hard on the card that you see
pictured above but when I went to link it in, my photoshop
system crashed and I was unable to post it. I was up till
4:00 a.m. trying to solve the problem and finally gave up.
This morning I got up at 9:00 a.m. and have been working
on the problem. Luckily I was able to pull the photo out so
here is my card.

Materials: Black, red and white cardstock

Scrapbooking paper: "Red Roses" by paper pizazz

Polk-a-dot cardstock: DCWV "The Ultimate premium satck

Hope you all enjoy my card.

Have a Splendid Afternoon!!!!!!!!!

Super Bowl weekend

Hello Everyone, Last weekend many of us watched the Super Bowl game. We also did a lot of eating and I was wondering what kind of food and snacks did you all have? In my header picture is my bean dip. To bad I could not get a picture of it before some of it was eaten. The next picture is of clam dip. My families favorite dip. This is a picture of some homemade poppers. They have sausage, cream cheese, and parmesan cheese.
Next is our smokies. Another must have. Then our homemade salsa.
It was a great game especially because the Packers won.
Hope you all had as much fun as we did watching the game.
Have a Splendid Day!!!!!!!!
