Catching up!

Yet another week goes by where I don't post!
It has been a little crazy on this end. The latest is a wicked sinus headache and cold. It all started with the aftermath of the fires in the Santa Cruz mountains. The wind carried a lot of the smoke and ashes over the miles and I could really feel it on Friday.

Ashli... thank you! The peppermint tea is so soothing! I read your post and bought some right away. Yummy too! :)

Here's a quick and easy Father's Day card:


Cardstock: Brilliant Blue, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Jersey Shore DSP
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Brilliant Blue, Wild Wasabi
Accessories: Bashful Blue Striped Grosgrain ribbon, Star Punch, 1/4" Circle punch, Paper Piercer, piercing mat, Bold Brights brads, Sponge Daubers, Stampin' Dimensionals

Here's a tip for getting the tiny brads on the star and 1/4" circles:

Use a paper piercer and mat to pierce a hole in the center of the star and circle:

Then keep the star & circle on the mat and push the brad in through the hole and mat.

Here are a few tags I made uniquely for each of my Japanese workshop ladies who placed an order. I tried to match a tag to a stamp set that they ordered.

I managed to get my reveal package out to my DDSS!
I put a lot of little things in this clear bucket that I decorated with Ginger Blossom DSP, Whisper White grosgrain ribbon, and hatpin & beads/pearls from Pretties Kit.

OH! I can't forget our latest Monday's Fun Day winner!

What a great card and tutorial! I'm a coffee drinker but do love a good tea sometimes too. My favorite coffee is a non-fat, sugar free caramel latte...I know...why bother. But it is good anyway! :o)

Is there a doctor in the HOUSE?

Do you know who this handsome guy is?


Isn't he just a dream?

Jesse Spencer from the t.v. show, HOUSE.

Here we are hanging out together at the bowling alley a few months ago in So.Cal.

Yeah right! LOL!
It just so happened that he was practicing for a bowling scene that they were going to film for the show and I got a photo op... lucky me!! :D
