Another first. I finally broke down and got a set from Close to my Heart. I'm still a faithful SU person, but dang it...acrylics are so compact. I'm loving those Palette inkpads. They work great on wood and acrylics. I'm so excited that I actually got to stamp for 2 days in a row. Seems like lately thats been a record around this zoo. This was uber easy to do and I just had to add the white diamonds to the large flowers and though you can't tell it, yellow diamonds to the smaller. Someone needs to take those things away from me...I love putting them on anything I can find. (the cat looks really funny with those things on, by the way) jk. Anywho, thanks for looking and I promise to get back to my wonderful wood soon as I can wade my way through the laundry that is screaming to get done today.

Papertray stamps

I have finally been snagged on the acrylic stamps...hook, line and sinker. They reeled me in and didn't even know it. I've been watching all those stinking darn cute cards that people are making with Papertray's stamps sets and figured, what the hay, I'll try one set... Famous last words mate. I currently have all their stamp sets and wait with bated breath for the 15th of each month for the next one to be released. There is no 12 step program for this problem... On the bright side...I am finally using up some of the patterned paper that I have been hoarding since the dawn of time. No, really, does anyone else have this problem? Ya walk into the local craft store and see this too cute paper. Hm, you say to yourself, I could use this for _____(insert project here) and so you walk out with said paper. It goes home and get filed into the special paper holder with all those other cool papers...of course then you have to stop and look at all the other papers that you are going to use for ______(again, insert project here) and never did. Its a vicious cycle. When I think back on it, my mother, who is a quilter has the same problem with fabrics. So I guess its a genetic thing... at least that's my story and I'm sticking to it like mono adhesive.

Happy Mothers Day

Hope that y'all had a great Mother's Day! We went out to a Mexican place for lunch and stuffed ourselves on chips and salsa. I had the most fab mushroom quesadilla ever!! I got to stamp for a while without interruption and spent alot of time playing catch up reading blogs. I think I'm officially hooked on reading blogs. There are so many talented people out there!

Where has the time gone? I've been missing in action here. Haven't had time to stamp or scrap, been trying to get the kids done with the school year. We are at t-minus 3 weeks and counting.

I thought I'd at least leave a card for ya'll to see. Will be back to regular stamping soon. I'm dying to see the new SU catty and am sad that so many sets are being retired this year.
