Sweet, Sweet Moments

PPA Pick


The sweet moments spent making a card are worth every minute.  My co-workers are amazed at how much I talk about Stampin’ Up!.  They even think I’m a little crazy about it and guess what?  I am… LoL.

This little hobby of mine has grown into a toddler.  My retired stamp sets are starting to move, just like I imagined.  Thank you so much to those of you who are viewing them and buying them one at a time.  If you want to see them… click here.

PPA166 Color Challenge

Oh, color challenges scare me.  I heard you ask, “WHY!”  Because it means I have to come up with the sketch on my own… LoL.  It can take me hours to come up with something, that’s why!  But I supposed that’s why I like and prefer clean & simple.  This is why I took a stab at the Pals Paper Art 166 Color Challenge.

If you could do one thing that scares you… what would it be?  Enlighten me by leaving a comment below. =)


At the end of the day we had a unit morale night with pizza from Pizza Hut and some really good BBQ chicken our Superintendent cooked up along with many sides.  It sure was yummy than the average food we eat at the dining facility!

What was the difference?  The food we BBQ’d had flavor and it was seasoned perfectly!  I’ll never take spices for granted… LoL.
