{Life is good


Happy Thursday! We had a great Stamp Club last night, thanks for coming girls! After club, I always want to stamp so badly, even though I know should go to bed. So I stamped, but you know how it is when you're so tired you can't think of anything? But I'm stubborn and refused to give up...which resulted in me staying up way TOO late...this is what I managed to complete, finally! lol! I took this photo this morning in my dining room for a change and it turned out pretty well, considering it's still dark outside.

I started by rolling the Dotted Jumbo wheel in Pumpkin Pie on a Kraft cardstock, and it turned out PERFECT! I was stunned. I couldn't get anything I liked with it, though, but I refused to abandon the perfect wheel job, so it eventually got cut down and made into this card. I was thinking how much I enjoyed my friends and how lucky I am, so I got out the level 1 hostess set Make It Count and decided to go with the "Life is...good." I was also trying *not* to use patterned paper...it's become like ribbon, I can hardly make a card without it!

Okay, off to school now. I've been a bad blogging friend, and I'm way behind (I have 134 unread posts on my Google Reader!), but I'll be catching up tonight. Tuesday night I was entering grades in the computer until 11:30 p.m. (darn procrastinating girl!) and last night dh powered down all the computers at 9:30 because of the storm rolling through, so I couldn't even surf after stamp club (most inconvenient for me!).

Have a great Thursday!

Hmmm, my Google Reader was over 300 this morning. UGH! I have been spending too much time outside.

I'd never give up on a perfect wheel job either, although I still have issues on occasion and I have to use the wheel guide. LOL!

I love how your card turned out.

Hi Angie!!

That was the FIRST thing I thought was "that has to be a background stamp because it's too perfect to be a wheel!" HAHAHHAHHA!!

This is simple yet fun and colorful! Great job!

Have a great day!!
