Manic Monday

Are you singing the song yet?? "It's just another Manic Monday..." :) We did have a busy day today & it seemed to be ALL about Trevor!! Went shopping for new shoes for school (that was a FEW hours!! he is SO picky!!) went to lunch, then headed up to his school so he could help out a teacher who needed some help in her room! Was just supposed to drop him off, but of course went inside & ended up staying until he was done! Came home, started dinner then remembered I had to get my project & post ready for this week for the Design Team!! And also had another comp book to make!! Here is the funny part...the DT post won't be up until Thursday (be sure & come back to see!!)...AND the comp book is a surprise to someone so I can't show that either!! LOL!!

But no worries!! I actually have a couple of cards that I did recently that I haven't posted! Honestly...I forgot that i hadn't posted them yet!! Oh well!

The 1st one is a new stamp set from Stamps of Life This set is "Branches4Flowers" & is the August stamp set of the month! If you haven't joined the club yet over there, here is more info...it is an AMAZING deal & the quality of stamps..also AMAZING!! Anyway, here is the card...
I have had this background paper FOREVER!! It is all textured, fuzzy...not exactly sure what it is called! But I have a huge pack of it in all different colors & patterns, so I decided to finally open it up & use it! I am really trying to do that more often!!

So, I only used a small part of the stamp set to actually "show" the paper off more! Here is a side view to show the texture more...you can see the fibers coming off the paper! It reminds me of some wallpaper that was (maybe still is!!) in my Grandparents house!! Or was it a couch?? Hmm...anyway!!
Also, tonight would like to show you a cute little card I made the other night! It all started because I THOUGHT I had a stamp that said something about "Bee-ing" your friend or something like that! So I cut out my bee from Create-A-Critter, found my background papers, punched the border punch, used my Cuttlebug border and then...realized I DID NOT have that stamp!! UGH!! So, I just used any ole' stamp that was cute!! I am going to have to get my the stamp I THOUGHT I had!! :)
I cut out his wings with vellum & then ran it through the Swiss Dots CuttleBug folder! And of course added some sparkle with Stickles!!

Now off to watch Big Brother that I missed last night! Golf ran over so everything was running late! Grrr!! I hate when that happens!

Until next time...
