Man Am I Tired!!

I really should be in bed, but I am an addict, as I pointed out up above!! I can't go a whole day without getting on the computer and checking everything out. I really need to seek help!!! My nieces are here and sleeping soundly in the living room floor(their favorite place to sleep even though they have two beds to choose from), and I should be sound asleep too, but I had to check out SCS to see what was going on. To my shock and delight the Limited Supplies challenge was posted early tonight so you know I had to stamp. I am going to keep this brief, because I am exhausted and God knows they won't sleep in in the morning!! The challenge was to make a card using only one flower stamp, no cuttlebug, no designer paper, no rub-ons except for sentiment, and you could use embellishments. I went with something pretty straight forward. It is the Brushed Lily stamp from rubbernecker stamped on Whisper White with Black Stazon. I colored it with my SU markers and blended with my aquapainter. I tied a big pink bow around it and called it a card. Oh I did somehow manage to stamp a sentiment on there, straight, without a stamp a ma jig, completely amazing!!! The colors on this card are Mellow Moss and Pretty in Pink. Some people might say that having 5 layers is not limited, but did you see the other card I posted today, it had 13!!! Good night, and I will be back in the morning to announce the winners!!!

Her Comes Peter Cottontail...

hoppin' down the bunny trail, hippety hoppety, Easter's on it's way!! Have I gone too far???LOL
Today's ways to use it challenge was to make a card inspired by a song and fortunately for me, some genius thought up this song a long time ago!! I am probably pushing it, but I need to keep going with the Easter cards, I am almost half way done!!yay!!! I do have one observation though. By the time I get done with all of these Easter cards, I may never used a Soft Subtle again!!! I love the colors, but I am getting a little tired of them!! Speaking of tired, I am going to go get my nieces today. They will be here until Saturday. I am only getting the two youngest, Maddy and Katie, and then on Saturday, I will drop them off and pick up their sister Taylor, their cousin(my honorary niece)Sam(antha), and my cousin in law Mallory. They will be her until Sunday. I have decided to split them up, not only because the noise level is insane when they are all her, but because I can't really take all of them anywhere to do anything. I only have room for 4 in my truck and since there are 5 of them, I am splitting them up into age groups. At first, I felt bad about doing it, but then when I really thought about it, the older girls don't really play with the younger ones when they are here anyway, and to be honest, they younger girls don't really seem to mind. So, if I seem absent, it's cause I am wrangling kids!!! Wish me luck!! Don't forget that my BLOG CANDY contest ends tonight at midnight!! I am going to have my niece Madison draw a number out of a basket to determine the winner. I did realize that since Katie will be here too, I should probably have her pick one too, so I don't know what the consolation prize will be yet, but there will be one. On to my card!! I used the Eggstra Special Easter set from My Favorite Things. I stamped the flowers first and colored the whole scene with my SU markers and aquapainter. I stamped the bunny on a seperate paper and colored it in the same way. I cut it out, popped it up and that was it. The rest is pretty self explanatory. Thanks for looking and have a great day!!!
