Here's to the 25th of every month

Scrap your day - another scrappy online class that I decided to do every month for a year by Shimelle. I haven't scrapped in awhile and this helps to motivate me and get me back in the groove. I started the day off right taking the photos but, I messed up on dinner and bedtime. Here's a couple photos that I took. The clock is wrong because I did wake up at 6:30 but remembered to take the photo a half hour later.
Here's my breakfast. Notice I look at Spongebob while I'm drinking my tea and eating my crackers.

Here's a photo looking right out my screen window.
We live in an older neighborhood.
Yesterday was such a hot, voggy, humid day. Notice the air looks grey. That's all the vog from the volcano on the Big Island.

This is the view from my living room.
It kind of looks like that today again. Hopefully the winds will come back and blow the vog away.

I spent my morning between loads of laundry making this pink elephant card. It's a new Sizzix die that we'll be using for one of the make-it take-its. It was quite easy and fast to make.
Well, I have quite a bit of photos to print for yesterday's prompt. So, I'm going back downstairs to finish my scrapbook.

Party chick

I bought a bunch of the new Penny Black stamps the other day and this stamp is one of my favorites.
Here's the deets:
Sizzix Bigz XL scallop card (new size)
Spellbinders megabilities small scallop rectangle and small classic rectangle,
Stickles icicle, Palette canvas ink, and Hero Arts gemstones. The flowers on the background is from the clear Spring set. I just love this white ink from Palette. It is one of the best white inks I have used. So crisp and clear. And many thanks to Jen who gave it to me! It is by far one of my favorites now.
Well, I need to get to bed since I'll be very busy tomorrow. G'night!

Almost forgot...

I'm actually doing a 2nd post today. I just wanted to let you all know that on Saturday, April 19th, I'll be doing a make-it take-it at Ben Franklin Crafts in Kailua from 11 - 12 pm. Hope to see you there!

I know, it's been awhile

I didn't realize it's been awhile since I last posted. I'm also the one posting on my husband's blog too. Today I was in a rush to make him a birthday card and funny how when you are trying to get it done fast, it never happens. I must of spent over an hour trying to finish it. Anyways, here's the deets:
Stamps are $1 stamps from Hampton Art, paper is Autumn Leaves, circles are Spellbinders nestabilitites in small and large size, white cardstock is Hero Arts, and sheer black ribbon from Ben Franklin Crafts. Hope you're having a great Tuesday!!!

That schmuck!

Well, we had a rude awakening this morning at around 3:15 am. And yes, it was the police ringing our doorbell. Guess they tried calling on the
phone but no one heard it. Some rat out there stole my car (the one my daughter drives), and crashed it down the hill because - duh! you can't turn the steering wheel when there is a locked bar going across of it. So we spent almost 2 hours waiting, filing a claim, waiting for the tow truck, calling the insurance company and basically waiting. We could of drove the car home except, it was stuck on this big rock in someone's front lawn. Which we are thankful that the guy was still up watching t.v. and heard the crash but couldn't get the thief as he ran down the street. Hmmph! So today, I will spend my day dealing with the claims adjuster on getting everything fixed on the car again. The ignition is hanging down the left side of the steering wheel and when you start the car, the water is shooting out of the windshield and nothing works. We get to find out today what damage was done under the car.
Ok, glad I got this off my chest. Hope you're having a great Thursday!

Baby mode

Our niece had a baby boy right before Easter so I told my husband that I would make the card for them instead of buying a card. Duh! I still buy Hallmark cards. Haha!

Hopefully we'll be able to see the little guy soon.

And since I was making baby cards, I played around with this new die that I bought and made another one. I cut this out of chipboard. I wanted to see if it would cut since it was a much smaller die than the usual original size or bigz and it worked.
Well, tomorrow is hump day and I'm so glad the week is half over. Have a good one!
