Hi everyone, thanks for all the lovely comments you have all left me, it really makes my day!! I am just doing another quick post with some pics of Easton, DH, and I in the snow. After the 70 degree weather from last week it quickly turned into 2 feet of snow, only in Kansas could this happen. I made another rocker card...it is suppose to be Kid Rock with Pamela Anderson. I used the dress me, cowboy, and pretty hat. Have a GREAT MONDAY!!!

I was trying to keep it short b/c if you follow Unity you know this stamp set, "Grow in Unity"....the rest of the supplies are from stampin up and the DS paper is Hobby Lobby. My favorite quote that I now live by is "Do the Best that you can, and rest is up to God!"
Here is the next blog, hop on over :)

Hi everyone IT'S FRIDAY!!!!!! My dear friend Heather is having her birthday, so I want to give a shout out to her, go by and visit her and tell her Happy B-day here http://heathersheavinlystampations.blogspot.com/. She is a very kind, smart, creative, and VERY TALKITIVE...(we have a lot common) Girl. I met her at her first 60's card workshop and we have become friends ever since. I fell in love with stamping and we have become great friends. Now I told Heather that her gift wasn't here yet and I sort of lied and I also told her other good friend a lie....but I won't spoil the gift b/c I can keep seceret and I know she'll never guess what I got her!!!! I'm snikering on the inside :P I just don't know when I'll be able to give it to her, maybe this weekend, I don't know if I can keep a secert that long :) Here is her card, she hasn't seen it yet...but she will soon.

I made this for my Friend Heather and after talking to her decided not to give it to her b/c she is allergic to brown, or so she says....Now I don't know what to type b/c I'm posting on Monday....for Wednesday??? What??? Yes I got ahead, or behind if you actually look back b/c I didn't post Sunday or Monday....but here is my first Geisha. I totally love her and am sooooo glad to get her!!!! I had to add a butterfly to the upper left corner to join in on the flutterby Wednesday. I hope you like her too, have a great day!!!
I found this site http://charmedcrafts.blogspot.com/2009/03/blog-candy-with-twist.html where you can get free copics...NO I"M NOT KIDDIND!!!!

What's up???? I am trying to get Easton to go to bed while I'm posting and it's not working very well!!!! We went on a hunt for Dinosaur eggs tonight and Easton was pretty upset that we didn't find any. He said " I looked and looked and I never saw any!!! I'm never going to find any Dinosaur eggs!!!!" They are soooo serious it cracks me up!!! Not to change the subject but my DH was in a grouchy mood...I don't know what his problem was, maybe he thought I spent too much time on this card, but come on Pink does ROCK!!!! I use the Ballerina head and a chunk of her hair stamped several times to make the Mohawk. Then I used the dress me little boy stripped shirt, the ballerina's tutu, the Miss Anya's legs * I added Heels, then I used the digi Alice and Wonderland's arm for a microphone and drew the stand, I drew some lips and I added the Pretty Hat Anya's bow to finish her off!!!! I totally love the way she turned out. The background is hobby lobby ds paper, and I didn't have my embossing gun so after I had already stamped the guitar and put the embossing powder I sprayed it with clear acrylic pain and it gave it a cool look I think. The letters are from a walmart Hanna Montana abc set, distressed the whole card and here it is!!!! Oh, I almost forgot the zebra stripped ribbon from Hobby lobby that has pink on the black, isn't it awesome!!!! Hope you all have a great day!!!! I'm Rockin' out!!!

Yes, it's true...Easton has diarrhea cha, cha, cha, and vomiting!!! Good thing that I have a very strong stomach!!! I did another take on the card I posted yesterday. I use to do this all of the time, I'd create 2 cards alike one for now and one for later and I always needed it shortly there after...today is my oldest brother's 5 year anniversary. He graduated from KSU so I thought purple and white were good together. Plus my Sister in law is a KU fan and it is always an ongoing fight, so I of course I went with KSU colors!!!! My ribbon and I had a little fight and I decided that it was a metaphor for marriage, you see, b/c sometimes you have to give and take, one side usually wins, sometimes b/c of all the work to make things better you get a little rough around the edges, but in the end you are together for ever and you make it work!!! Have a great weekend!!!

I have a touch of the flu...achy, tired, upset stomach....blah, blah, blah....I stayed home from work today but I got Ken (Kevin's Uncle) who is having minor knee surgery today done and now posted. It is a quick card and while I'm setting here with my stomach rumbling....I decided to post a few pics of what I've been up to lately. Sat. was Carson's birthday party so there are some pics from that, and then yesterday I watched an additional 5 kids on my day off. We did some cake making and card making b/c it was Huter's 6th birthday. I think I over extend myself and now I'm paying for it...or maybe it was the wild buffalo wings from Tuesday?? Anyways, hope your week is going well!!! I'm sure I'll be on my feet by Friday!!

Hi everyone...hope your week is off to a good one!!! I had an awesome "date night" last night while Easton went to play with the neighbor's great-grand kids. We watched Fallen, one of my favorite movies of good vs. evil. For some reason it really makes me think about life as we think we know it. As for my title..that is due to my new song that makes me dance and sing. It's a feel good song that has a chorus that you could sing all day, plus a very catchy beat. Life is good!! I made a few 6 Happy St. Patrick's day cards quickly b/c Easton woke up so that only left me 30 min. They're not the most creative and I didn't have my St. Patrick's day set, but they'll do!!! Well got to run, we are going to Celebrate Carson's 5th b-day tonight at Buffalo Wild Wings (his favorite restaurant). He was born on St. Patty's day so, Happy Birthday Little Man, I love you!!!

Well I've been having problems download to the greeting farm web site, I learned that my pics are too large...Heather said she'd come over and help me with that....some might say that I am computer challenged, I wouldn't argue!!!!! I finally go this card made this afternoon for my mother-in-law's best friend recently diagnosed with breast cancer (she is also and surgery nurse). F.Y.I. the slumber party was fun, except that Easton woke up at 5 am.....I was going to get up and post early but he put a damper on that. O'well we stamped together and then went to Teegan and Kanon's soccer games, and finally we got home after lunch, now nap time. Here in about 20 min. we'll head over to my sister-in-law's for Carson's b-day...never a dull moment!!!

I made this card for the Curious Card Challenge. We have a patient that has had some real struggles with his treatment and it's side effects, but his home health nurse has really impressed me!! I am going to mail this to her today to tell her how much I appreciate her taking the time and paying attention to all of his needs physically and mentally. I think as a nurse you can never be told enough how great you are and to be told by another nurse out of respect is even more wonderful. On a lighter note, I am having 4 kids come over for a slumber party tonight....could be interesting....

I am running out of time for lots of things these days, talking to my friends, posting, stamping, sleeping, cleaning...but somehow I always have time for working, taking care of kids, running errands, blah, blah, blah...I know BORING!!! I got my taxes done yesterday and somehow every time I hit the send button it reminds me of when I clicked finished on my Nursing test and my Oncology test....very scary!!! But DONE all the same, one way or another!!!! I took my brothers two Kids Teegan and Kanon with us to the library story hour and to the museum. They had fun inside b/c it was 20 degrees outside today and I was not about to play outside. However I find that the less we time we spend at home, the less I have to pick our home... :P We also went to the store for our bi-weekly grocery shopping. I picked up this awesome gift for my nephew Mason, who will be 1 this year, it's a superman sleeping outfit with a cape, I had to buy on for Easton and take some pictures (OF COURSE). Today is actually Mason's B-day, So happy b-day little guy.... I made this card out of the very first picture I took of him sleeping, it is still one of my favorite pics of him to date. I need to also make a card for my mother-in-law's friend who was diagnosed with breast cancer.... the other card I made was for our Nurse Practitioner who is having a b-day also this weekend I made it out of the label on the Tequila bottle mostly as a joke b/c she doesn't drink Margartias but when she asks what I would like that is always my first answer. Resa is one of my most favorite ladies....I have many, but she ranks up there very high. She has been an oncology nurse for 30 some years, needless to say she know just about everything there is to know about cancer. However she is learning about drinking lately with one of our patients told her he takes 3 shots of everclear and Resa thought it was a type of water, so see your never to old to learn, the content may just be a little different!!! On my list I also need to make her some earrings for as well as wrap us some Margartia glasses, not to mention I need to cut 3 maybe 4 guys' hair tonight and then we have Carson's b-day party (Mason's older brother) who will also need and card by sat.....did I mention I was running out of time....well....got to go!!! My Dr. is out Thursday afternoon and Friday sooooo PARTY in the DR. OFFICE!!!!!!

Here is a quick post for Monday!! My Brother Noah's fiance is a 1st grade teacher and he just left for spring training camp in Fl. She is such a wonderful friend and kind person. I am soooo lucky to have such great sister -in-law's. I made this card using the layout on the Anya Blog for her just to say that I was thinking of her...I'll have to post about the weekend later, I have to go to work!!!

Thank you for your Prayers!!!! Kev's Aunt Mitsy had surgery yesterday and they said the preliminary report was benign!!!!!! I cased a card from the Stampin up mini...I loved the idea of peak-a-boo card. Mitsy is not real frilly, she is warm and kind I thought these colors represented her well, of course brown is always my go to color for warmth!!!! Easton Rocked out this am at 5:20, so it's a good thing I already had an idea of what to do, b/c by the time he's up and eats plus all of my am regimen to leave by 6:30 with a post is hard to get done...well I better go the truck leaves in T - 7 min. Have a great Thursday!!!

Today maybe a day w/o a card post..after working 10hours giving chemo, I went to Zoomba to relieve some stress, then I stopped by Tasha and Heather's house to pick up my share of work for the card party....I cut the cards while watching American Idol and finished about 1 am, so I didn't get up to early this morning, but when I did get up I picked up the house, washed the dishers and iglo coolers from the funeral, put all the things away including laundaray, made breakfast for Kanon and Easton...that was the work part of the day. At 9:15 we loaded up and went to Library story hour, ran home and packed to go to the boat club for lunch, then we visited my dad at school where the boys played on the chalk board and wore my dad's shop hats. They had sooo much fun and it is such a nice day here, again on my Wednesday off. I am now at my mom's watching the kids at her house 2 more 3 year olds and a 6 month old that needs a nap, or maybe that's just me!!! Anyways my bother Mace has a game this afternoon at 2 pm so I thought one of us should go, so I came to my mom's so she could go...needless to say after writing my weekly letter to my grandma (sometimes bi-weekly) I figured I'd put the pics since I don't have any card making supplies to make a card, sorry! But if you haven't read before I do this blog not just for you but for my son in case anything happens to me he could have a little piece of what his mom is all about!!! I don't plan on dieing but I do work in oncology so I know the possibility is out there so I am prepared!! Well the baby is crying I better go check on him, I forgot what this is all about having a 6 month old and all, EAston's going to be 4 soon!!! Go to go!!!

I hate being a DEBBIE DOWNER!!!!! I feel like everything I love and everything I care about is going to pot!!! Well, Kind of...I found out that Kev's aunt may have ovarian cancer and I went to a co-worker/friend/oncology nurse's funeral that past away from a brain tumor yesterday. Nothing like a big fat wonderful MONDAY!!! Marsha was my friends name and she was such a blast!!! I never worked with her that I didn't almost pee in my pants b/c she was making me laugh soooo hard. Sorry I had to put that but it was true!! She always had the funnest stories..one of my favorite stories was about a goat named ILean...because the goat's head was permanently leaned over to the left...anyways I will forever miss her and chuckle to myself at her stories. Kev's aunt is scheduled for surgery on Wed...so I will keep my hopes up, but I am an oncology nurse so I'm a little tainted...The card above was made by Teegan my niece she was upset b/c she messed up the eyes so I recommended that she use the booglie eyes and I think it turned out sooo cute. The other card I made for Aunt Soni, Kevin's other aunt that is almost like another mother in law...she rocks!!! Her husband's name is Ken and he makes fun of me and my markers..b/c I bring them over and color when we are all hanging out...I didn't have a Ian that I thought looked like him and they don't have a dog when I decided to use the pretty hat girl, ken said well I'm the Kendogg....and so I ran with it...and I love it!!! Well I love all of my cards even if I didn't make it on the Anya team :)!!!! I will just have to buy myself some more in my sorrow!!!
