I was tagged

It has been a strange and weird week .
A friend of ours was killed by a train. He worked for the UP railroad and stepped off his train. He was instantly killed by an oncoming train on the next track. He was 41 and had a wife and 2 daughters.
Our Dog Ceddy was apparently bit, by something last night. He went out and when he came back in he was all bloody and a bunch of fur missing. I wont post the pic. I will spare ya. Dave took him to the vet this morning and they had to shave his back by his tail where it happened. He looks pretty goofy. He is now on steroids and drinking like crazy!
My Internet has been out a lot this week. It comes back then off again. It has been pretty steady the last day and a half though so that is good.

My challenge tag came from my good Friend Jacquie! It is to go tho the 6th folder in your pic file and share the 6th pic in that folder. well here is mine. It is my children, Taylor and Brad at age 3and 4. This was taken by the picture people it is one of my favorite portraits of them.

martini break

I am not a drinker, I don't even know what a martini is made of. I do think this bella is super cute though!! lol
She is colored with copic markers and I used BG papers. I have to apologize, I can't remember where the sketch came from.
I have been working on some layouts lately, I will be posting some of them this week. I have been getting pics made that are not just 4x6 and am scrapping them. I have 3 to share with you this week.
Also on another note, my counter quit working, I noticed a lot of others counters not working also. I signed up for a new one and am starting over with my count. have a great night!

***scroll down for the most current post. This will be at the top till thursday. Thanks***

I have some Blog candy up for grabs!!! It is a paper pack by Daisy D's, with matching ribbon, flowers, and buttons. The paper is all about sock monkeys, I LOVE monkeys so when I saw this paper, I thought I had to have it and bought some more to give away! I am also including 12 stamped images of the sock monkey from a Stampin Up set that I received from Jacquie Peifer. It goes so good with this paper.
The rules are pretty simple. Leave me a comment, link my blog to yours, and tell me the one scrap/stamping item you could not live without. That is it! Have fun and good luck everyone! I will draw a winner with randomizer on Wednesday the 14th!

Digi Downloads-my new love

OMGosh! Have you ever tried a digi download stamp? Thanks to some of my Bella friends I found some cool sites with some cute stamps. All That Scraps, and Squigglefly were where I purchased some today. If anyone knows of any more places to get these, Please Please let me know!

This first one reminds me of my mom. It looks like something she would like. I colored it in with her in mind.

The next one is Heidi. She is such a cutie, ignoring the fact that my colors don't really match the paper, I think it is really cute. The sketch is from Jen's site I heart to stamp.

On another note, I am feeling quite a bit better now. The doc wants me to stay home for one more day, but I have been gone since last wed. I am not too sure what I will do yet. Last time i had pneumonia it hung on for a few months, so I don't want to push it, but at the same time i am feeling better. hmmm who knows, I will decide in the morning!

a card and a pity party!

Hello all, how are you doing? I am bumming tonight. Dave started at a new position at his job tonight. It is a shift that we don't get to see him very much. He figured it to be about 5 hours a week that we will get to see him. I am already missing him tonight!

I finally went to the Dr. today, I have walking pneumonia. I knew it was getting bad, but kept putting it off thinking I would get better. HA! Well at least I am on medicine and am on the mend. I actually am feeling better than this morning. My inhaler is my new best friend!

So on to my card now. I found this sketch on the Sugar Bowl site. It is quite a bit busier than I usually do, but, I like how all the papers worked together. I have a few other cards that I have made, but will share them later!
take care everyone and stay well.

homepage entry

Hi I just made this card for the homepage contest on bellaholics. I made it with someone in mind and I think it fits perfectly. The papers are basic grey, from the new Valentines pack, I can't remember the name at the moment.
We have had the stomach flu go around our house a few times in the last 2 weeks. Guess who got it last night. yep ME! ugg I am finally feeling a bit better tonight, but now I am getting a cold. At least we were all healthy for Christmas and New years.
another one of my goals is to comment on the blogs I read. I love to get comments and I assume others do to so I am making that a part of my goal for this year. Have a great night everyone and I will be back Friday, with some blog candy!

Happy New Year!!

I guess i had better get my butt in gear and make a post to my peeps. How was every ones holiday? Mine was great!! We spent Christmas day and New Years Eve at my parents house, playing games and eating of course. My mom makes the best potato soup. MMM it was so good, kind of a tradition to have it on New years eve.
I have also been busy with a makeover of my scrap room. My friend Amy helped me paint and organize everything. I have a few more things to do before I can show you all pics, but I love how the color turned out. It is a blueish green similar to Breeze from CTMH. Thanks to Amy for helping me get it done. If it was not for her I would not have even started yet. lol
Well my goal this year as far as scrapping goes, is to make at least 2 posts a week if not more. I also want to start sending out some of the cards I have been making. I hope to post more than that but don't want to set an unrealistic goal for myself. I have some blog candy to give away this week, so stay tuned...
