Sorry another long one!

Wahoo, it's the weekend!! Ya know, I don't work outside of the home anymore and still there is something about the weekends, which  makes you feel TGIF!  Is it because all the stress, work, etc.  should be done for the week and Monday you can start a brand new week?  dunno!  Oh well,  last night was a good night! Hubby and I went out to dinner and then I join some girls for Stamp'n up party. We made some really cute cards!  Any how, this was one heck of a stressful week and I am super glad to chill out and lay back a little!

I have to tell  you though what my hubby said tonight and then I have some exciting news for ya! How were you before you started making card, as far as keeping the house cleaned.  My hubby used to tell everyone "I got up in the middle of the night to use the BR and when I came back the bed was made"  and my dad would say "I was reading the newspaper, went to get a cup of coffee, went back to read it and it was gone, had to go get it out of the trash!" ha ha ha. I am sure, DH wishes those days were still here because things have changed since I have entered into the world of card making! Ok, so here's what he said!. First off you have to know my dogs always lay by my feet under my desk.. Well, tonight DH comes up into the office, as serious as a heart attack, and sits down at his desk and looks at me and says "I would like to inform you about something" and I'm thinking "inform me" when did we get so formal? And, after this week of pure stress, I stared at him scared to death of what he might say.  I could feel my heart racing and my eyes watering and very quietly said "what?"  He is so dang serious and he says "Simba came down stairs and for the past half hour, I have been cleaning all the glitter and sticky things off of his a** and you have to be a little bit more careful.  He is so serious and I looked at him and I LOST it. I laughed so dang hard and long my ribs hurt! And, then to top it off.... he looks at me and says "what's so funny" which only cracked me up more!!  You gotta luv him!

Ok, so here is my news. Todays card was made using a digital image from Kenny K's Krafty Girlz,
and let me tell have to go check out this web site and Illustrator!  For now, the only link which works in the challenge blog is the "Kenny K's Shop". Look around and you will  see everything is in place and ready to start the challenge blog!

I would still be sitting here until tomorrow morning! As you are looking around you will say to yourself  "I don't get it!"

AWESOME card Colleen! I can so relate to your post. I have OCD when it comes to cleanliness. But I find in order to create the way I want to somethings gotta give and it's usually my sleep. Thanks so much for the tip on Kenny K's!! I'm heading over to check it out now. Hugs, xx

Such a cute card! I love the colors :) and that image is super cute! I had to laugh when I read about your hubby. My husband says he finds those blue sticky tabs all over the house. What are you going do? Hugs, Sarah

I LOVE Glitter and Bling and often notice when I go out, after I have been working on cards that I will often look in the rear-view mirror and see glitter all over my face... LOL! Never thought about other body areas! !!

Poor little Simba! Your hubby sounds like he's a riot!

Thanks for sharing that cute story!! Made me smile!! :)


PS: My house has suffered since I took up this wonderful hobby and to me it's a mess, but to hubby and my boys, they LOVE that I am NOT as much of a "neat freak"...but I simply do NOT have the energy or time to do it ALL! LOL!

Time of day
