Fast & Fabulous

Good Morning Gal Pals!  Hope we're on for tonight.  Sure am looking forward to it.

Quick question. . . .does this stamp set look familiar to you?  It's called Fast and Fabulous and it was a hostess set from last year's big catalog.  I have on my inventory that we own it jointly but it's not in the drawer at Memory Lane and it's not in my stamp room.  So now I'm questioning my bookkeeping.  Did I put it on my spreadsheet in error and maybe we never did choose it as one of our joint freebies or is it checked out somewhere?  Take a look in your craft rooms if you have a chance and let me know if you find it.  Otherwise, I guess I'll just take it off our joint inventory and call it good.

See ya' soon.

I think I'm finally back among the living.  Whew!  Between the hard road trip to California and the nasty, nasty, bug I brought home, I wondered if I was ever going to feel well again.  I actually spent about an hour in the craft room yesterday.  Far less than I originally intended but neglected house chores and beautiful spring weather pulled me away.  But I'm definitely looking forward to craft night tomorrow.  It feels like it's been WAY to long since my last Gal Pal fix. 

P.S.  The family LOVED their St. Patty's day card.  A BIG thanks to Staci for suggesting the plastic springs that made the little owl jiggle.  It transformed the card and was a big hit!!

Casual Friday

Happy Friday!  We made it to the end of the another week.  Woo-Hoo!!!

I'm out of cards to post so I thought I'd share a couple of links today.  I love this blog "Michelle Made Me".  Can't remember how I found it but she's the one that did my "Love Monster" finger puppets.  She does make cards every now and then but she's got a lot of other crafts on her blog.  This post caught my attention because I've actually got some old jean pockets in my stash of craft stuff.  I saved them thinking I would use them on a scrapbook page someday to hold journaling or other memorabilia.  But I kind of like this idea a little better - even though I don't know the first thing about sewing a zipper!!

The other link I wanted to share with you was the "Free Font Friday".  I know I've posted that one before but the font 2 weeks ago was really, really cute.  It's a bunch of cute heart dingbats.  A little late I know but I'm going to download them for next year's valentines and other mushy, mushy, lovey, dovey notes I write to Cricut Man :-)

Hope you have a great weekend.  See you back here next week.

Sprinkled Expressions

Just wanted to let you know that I accidentally ended up with 2 of the new Sale-a-Bration stamp set Sprinkled Expressions.  So one is now in the drawer at the shop for us to share.  I used it on a card that I was working on Tuesday and that will go out to the family this week.  I'll try to post that next week.  Don't want Mom to see it online before she gets it in the mail ;-)

Here's another sample of a really creative use of the set for St Patty's day which is right around the corner.  I snagged this from the Splitcoast gallery.  More samples of what you can do with the set here if you've got time to surf.

And I ?think? the sentiment on this card is in basic install of My Digital Studio.  How nice and convenient!
