Featured In the Creative Corner!

eeck! I won in The Angel Company's latest Card to Crop contest so my two items are featured over in the Creative Corner on their website. It's so exciting. I know the layouts are quite simple but the coloring on my sunflowers actually came out nicely...and how can you go wrong with this paper?! I also want to give a shout out to one of my downlines, Clarissa, who won the Packaged Oh So Pretty category...I love it!




all paper and stamps from The Angel Company

Stamps: Tag Tidbits, Just a Note, Flowers and Holly
Accessories: Sands of Time, Bazzill brown monochromatic pack, Mimi Ribbon, Brown Scrappers Floss

Today was a Lucille Ball type of morning...am I dating myself with that comparison? My son was all out of clean jeans and the pair in the dryer were still too damp to wear (at least for winter - if it were summer I'd say they'll dry fast! tee hee)...so, there I stood, with 5 minutes to go, a hairdryer stuck in the pockets to spot dry them...they were carpenter pants so they had lots of wet pockets! After I got him to school, it was time to feed the chickens. The neighbor had brought me a pumpkin bread last week...not like my yummy muffins I blogged about, I'm sorry to say. It was one of those dense, heavy brick like breads - which only got worse as it sat in my refrigerator. Perfect treat for the chickens! As I broke it up for them and threw it into their pen, one escaped (she spotted a worm outside the coop, how could I deny her that?!) but when I went to catch her and put her back in, I got feathers stuck all over my hands from the stickiness of the pumpkin bread! What a mess...and what a morning!

If you are here visiting from my sponsorship over at the Card Patterns blog this week, thanks for stopping by! You can see my take on the sketch and enter my blog candy here!
