Peanut Gallery

I had a complaint from the peanut gallery that there were no pictures of me on any of my blogs, so, I will try to find one I can stand and post it. So here's one of me from the 2006 state fair, holding a baby alligator. Isn't he adorable!!

And here's me when I had long hair.

My Newset Addiction ~ Latest Obsession

Stamping!!! Cards!!! I love it!! I've gone nuts!!! I've had stamps for quite a while, but I've not really gotten into it until just recently. Now I'm buying stamps at Hobby Lobby, Wal Mart, Ebay and of course from my favorite Stampin' up demonstrator!

I've been signing and sending cards to soldiers overseas through various sources for about two months now. And now I'm creating my own!! I love it!! It let's me be creative, yet I don;t need a ton or storage space, nor a lot of space to do the work!! It's fantastic, but very addicting, I'm finding!! But at least I can use it for the benefit of others very easily!!

This one I made at a class with my Stampin' Up demonstrator. We used Pearl Ex powders and had a blast!

So, I'm going to post some of the cards I have made. From the beginning, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly....

These first four I made to fit some envelopes I had laying around the house. That's yet another thing I love about this - I can recycle old stuff - scraps and bits of paper and ribbon, odd size envelopes, I can custom make these cards to fit the occasion, the person, the envelope!!! It's wonderful!!

The next three I also made to fit some extra envelopes I had, but these were legal size envelopes, so the cards were much bigger.

Kitty Post

I see a lot of people doing Friday Cat Blogs, or kitty blogging.
Seems to be the thing to do, but as usual, I'm behind the 8 ball. (thanks dad!)
But I'll find a cute pic of my kitty and put it in here, cuz I love him so much!! {grin}

Oops!!! That's not my kitty - that's my hubby's kitty.

Here's my kitty - Oliver ~

He's 10 years old and sweet as can be. He loves to smile and cuddle......
