Caardvarks Ravishing Ribbon

Ok here is my card for http://caardvarks.blogspot.com/Ravishing Ribbon Challange. For this card I used pink cardstock, BasicGrey Cotton Candy, BasicGrey Marzipan, Basicgrey Chipboard, Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Vintage Photo, Martha Stewert Glitter in Carrara Marble, and ribbon is from my stash.

A Tuesday Funny!!!

I was reading this on a message board some where and thought this was fitting for the post below. Enjoy.

9 Words Women Use
(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.
(2)Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have been just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.
(3)Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, ans you should be on your toes. Arguements that begin with nothing usually end with fine.
(4)GO Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't do it!!!
(5)Loud Sigh: This is actually not a word, but is a non-verbal statment often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here arguing with you about nothing. ( Refer back to #3 for the meaning of nothing)
(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statments a woman can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard befor deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.
(7)Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome.
(8) Whatever: Is a women's way of saying F@!k YOU!
(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking," What's wrong?" For the woman's response refer to # 3.

All Jacked Up

1,2,3 Challenge

Here is another layout I did for http://ourbrightstarsandus.typepad.com/123challenge/ This month we needed to use felt, paint, and ribbon.

It's Done

Well the wedding card box is finally done....here are a few pics of it.

My Favorite Layout

This is my very favorite layout of all time.

Fathers Day Gift

This was the card/gift I made him for Fathers Day. I know I am a little late posting this. Better late than never. This is not a real good picture of the card but it was kinda hard to photograph it. Each letter has a pocket that has a tag you can pull out. On each tag it has pictures of me growing up and diffrent sayings.

My Dad

I wanted to post this picture before I forgot too. This is my dad and his wonderful girlfriend. This photo was taken on Fathers Day. They are so cute together.

Card #4

This is card number 4..... for Caardvarks. We were to have four squares on a card. Here is my creation

2 Scrappychixs

http://www.2scrappychixdesigns.com are having a contest this month. You have to use a sketch from http://www.scraproomblueprints.com/. So I did #064 and here is my take on it.


I have found this really great site and every month they host a challange for you to use 3 items on a layout. I even got my friend Lori hooked who usually does not scrapbook so to speak. So this month we where to use felt, paint, and ribbon.
