I finally got around to using some of my new bella stamps! I could not believe I would buy them without having an idea of how I was going to use them! Doh! I then had to post how do you use yours? After getting some great answers I decided that I would use double sided sticky tape for now! I let my new stamps intimidate me like most of the stamps I have! People come up with such wonderful ideas and I come up with poop! I know that most people don't like what they do & I am NO different! I see flaws in this card like my horrible watercoloring in the jeans!!!!!! I just wish that I could come up with great ideas like so many others do! This design is adapted from one I saw in a mag! I added the scallop edge and rhinestone brads! Oh man, I think the one I adapted was also a bella stamp! I have to say that I do like the card and hopefully my friend will too!
My in-laws stopped by tonight to visit. They took us out for ice cream at Baskin Robbins. After standing in line like forever, we finally started getting the ice cream. We stand at the register for the girl to total everything up and it comes to 18.45! I am thinking it is a good thing James did not get anything or this would have been over $20! I could not believe it!!!! I told James we could have gone to a fast food place and got food for the same cost as ice cream!!! I was just in total shock!!!! Antonia's Oreo shake was $4.99! I think for this kind of money each item should have had gold sprinkles on it! Who in the world came up with these prices???? Now, I know why we don't go there much! Well almost never! Now I know why the lady in the commercials eats all the peas so that they can get ice cream at is because it is the last meal her family will be able to afford after she pays for the ice cream!
Today brings fun! I unfortunately have to get up early!!!!!! Like by 9:30 a.m.! Who in the world would be up at the awful hour????? I know , I know, normal people! The only bright side is that I will be scrapping with my friend Chris! Yea!!!! We might also take the kids after dinner to the park or maybe Friday after school! They have been best friends for years and miss our once a week get togethers with them like during the summer! I am sure hoping we can get some camping done this fall! We had a blast when we went! The best part is when going to bed we were making furious noises to scare Taylor and Nick! I did the meanest, badest, frog and cow! It sure scared the kids!!!!! Yeah right! LOL
Toodles for now! Check back soon! You hear?

5 Winks for Fink:

There is absolutely nothing wrong with that card. Its adorable! And I do the same thing with all my new produts. They sit on my desk and leave me zapped of all creativity...intimidated.

Jeeeez that's some expensive ice cream! Good grief, how do families afford it? And I'm with Wendy, the card is super cute! I think you're right, we can all come up with something to criticize our own work!

P.S. Thanks for your kind words about my gram!

Love that card!! And I love that BR commercial too, but whew.... Peas and carrots is all you can afford if you're going out for ice cream. THe last time I was in BR was 12 years ago. LOL...can you believe that. Sheesh, Fink..thanks for reminding me I need to get a life!!!LOL
