Good luck at boot camp!

I whipped up this card last night to take over to our neighbors house. Our sweet neighbor girl joined the National Guard and is leaving for boot camp this Monday. I tried to "girl up" this card with a few feminine touches, since she is definitely a girly girl! But I also wanted it to look "military". Does that make sense? I printed the outside sentiment on my computer. IT SHOULD say "a girl can do anything if she has the right pair of shoes". Whoops a little type-o on my part! I actually just noticed this error while posting! Ahhh! How did I over look that! I actually showed the card to my husband and friend before I gave it to her. So if they didn't notice then hopefully my neighbor won't notice! The inside of the card says "Good luck at boot camp!" I thought that it turned out pretty cute, with the exception of my type-o!

Supplies: SU!'s Garden Green, Chocolate Chip, Confetti Cream, ribbon, and Weathered background stamp, Martha Stewart's glitter in Smokey Quartz, Marvy punches, corner rounder punch, Spare Parts paper clip, the pp is an old scrap and I'm not for sure what brand it is.

Car update!

Well we found out what was wrong with my car. The sway bar broke. At least I think that's what Andy called it. Anyways, our tires were rotated on Sunday and I guess they were put on backwards and that's what caused it to break. I guess the tires need to be put on a certain way because they are "directional". Well, guess who wanted to be the handy man and rotate them himself! Yep, that's right Andy! I need to remind him that he's a mechanical engineer not a mechanic! LOL!!! Don't get me wrong he is very handy and extremely smart! Just an honest mistake. Life happens...

Dare to be fabulous! & Car back in shop! :/

I got my new SU! set yesterday, "Fabulous Flowers". I love it! The very first time I saw this set I knew that I needed it for this giant flower stamp. I thought that it would be perfect to cut out and layer. What do you think??? I really liked how it turned out. I might have went a little far with the distressing but it still works for me! ;)I also used SU's Soft Sky and Chocolate Chip ink and paper.

BTW our car went back to the shop yesterday! This time it's a new problem! Andy drove it yesterday to work and said that it sounded like the front wheels were going to fall off!!! Ahhhhh! We haven't heard yet what is wrong with it, but hopefully we'll hear something soon.

It's not like my car is a total piece, even though it sounds like it! I have a '99 Grand Prix GT. We've had it for at least five years and take really good care of it. I do put a lot of miles on it during the school year (at least 60 miles a day). And I DO NOT want a new car until I graduate in a year and a half. I don't want a new car parked in a college parking lot! Plus I really don't want a car payment! Hopefully Precious (that's my car's name, I know total nerd) will be up and running soon! Thanks for listening to my vent! Happy stamping!

New stamp set!

This is the card that I am sending to my older sister for her birthday this Friday. I got to use my new Stampendous! clear stamps, "Petal Plus Set" that I got at Archiver's this past weekend. I also used SU's Chocolate Chip, Pink Passion, gel-pen, and Little Pieces stamp set. It's a really simple card, but I like how it turned out! Well that's all for now... Better go price more garage sale stuff! Thanks for stopping by!

Let's catch up!

This post is all about catching up! It's been awhile since I've posted, but I don't want to bore you with my usual rambles so I'll keep it short.

-Computer got fixed (obviously;) just a minor part needed to be replaced! No viruses & we didn't loose any files! Yea!!!!

-Car got fixed! However, the first trip to the shop DID NOT fix the problem. The second trip and an additional $300 dollars did fix the problem! Oh-well at least it's working now!

-This past weekend we went to Omaha & Lincoln. I was so excited to go to Archivers & Michael's! I would of had more fun if Andy hadn't of went into Archivers with me! ;) But I am surprised that he lasted as long as he did in there! I also got to eat at my favorite sushi restaurant in Omaha. Yum!!! Oh and of course we had lots of fun with our friends in Lincoln! Good times!

- My last on-line test is due on Thursday! Then I'll be finished with my summer class! Hooray! But regular classes start the 20th! Boooo!

- We're having a garage sale this Friday & Saturday. Lot's of work! Our garage is full of stuff! We're mostly selling my sister-in-laws stuff. She moved to Hawaii last summer. So needless to say she's decided that she wants to stay there and doesn't need her household items & furniture any more!

-It's stinkin' hot in NE right now! OMG!!! It's really humid!!! You should see my frizzed out hair!!! LOL!

Well that's it for now... Hope you are enjoying some stamp time!
