Finally, I STAMPED!!

So, I haven't had the energy to stamp this week....I think is was the thought of the impending birthday and the stress from the release that had me so tired. I am hoping to be back to normal soon!! I kind of had to force this card, so I don't know that it is my BEST work, but I still like it. I made it for Beate's Weekend Sketch challenge as well as the SCS limited supplies challenge. The LSC was to use eyelets and one ribbon, blue, only one DP, and no tools. I used my Urban Garden DSP and paired it with Not Quite Navy and Kiwi Kiss. The image, from the SU Upsy Daisy set, was stamped once with Not Quite Navy and then again to create a shadow(I didn't reink it between times so that it was lighter). I added some silver eyelets to the corners of the card base and main image. The sentiment is from the There She Goes set, Here For You. This card is going to be going to my friend Vicky who lost her husband suddenly earlier this week. If you would like to send her a card, email me and I will get you her address. The ribbon is the new satin Kiwi Kiss ribbon and it is so YUMMY!! Okay, that is it for me now, I am off to try to stamp more and to get photos of my CANDY!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!!

My Week Of FUNNNN!!

Okay ladies...I never got around to posting the picture of what I have for ya, but never fear, it is a good one!! I have decided, since this has been such a huge week for me that I will keep this open until midnight tonight, and then I am going to pick three winners, a grand prize and two runners for each day of my wonderful week!! Stay tuned!!

ETA: So, I changed the title of my post, not because I am feeling better about my impending birthday, but because who can say it is a week of torture when you get to be a Dirty Girl!! OH, and by the way....I have now OFFICIALLY met all my stamping goals, wahooo!! Now to come up with some NEW goals!!

So, here lately, I haven't been feeling all that well. I get up in the mornings and it feels as if I have this HUGE weight on my chest. At first, I seriously thought I was sick, and then I realized the REAL reason why I was feeling this way......I turn 30 on Friday......GAGGGGGG!!!!
I have been complaining to anyone who will listen for WEEKS that I can't possibly be 30, that I would like to cancel my birthday due to lack of interest, but inevitably, it is coming. That's when my pal Jodi told me to think of the alternative. She told me to think of all the great things in my life, and not all the things I was worried about(you know, the economy, my inability to have kids, the fact that I haven't reached all my stamping goals) . So, why not celebrate in style, and share it with all of YOU!!!! So, in honor of this horrific occasion, and my upcoming anniversary, I am having a huge blog candy giveaway(my anniversary is the 16th, 4yrs..WOW!!)!! In order to be included in the give away, leave a comment on this post telling me about your most dreaded birthday(doesn't have to be your 30th, just your most dreaded up until this point in your life). The list of FABULOUS stuff you can win is still being compiled, but I will finish it tomorrow and take a picture for you all to see!! Thanks for playing and GOOD LUCK!!
