Thanks for the Mojo Alana

I love my sisterhood of the blogging sisters. What a fabulous group of friends I've made. I've been involved in an image swap with some of my SBS2 sisters and I requested the Preggabella image from Alana . I think she's just the cutest. Well, guess what came in the mail yesterday? Yep! My images! Thank you Alana, you rock!!!

I had to sit down immediately and play with them. I decided that this one needed to use the layout from Julee's (Verve Visual) Mojo Madness contest. This is her monthly challenge and if she picks your card, you get to pick out one of her terrific stamp sets. Fun huh? Anywho, here is the card that I made.

That yummy paper is from my big stack of Wild Asparagus from My Minds Eye. For the image I broke out my Prisma color pencils and Gamsol and away I went. I added the dots and stripes with my SU markers. The white panel is cuttlebugged with the Swiss Dots folder. That cute little tag was made with my SU tag punch with ribbon wrapped around it. The word "baby" was made on my cricut using both the George (B) and Mini Monogram (aby) cartridges. For the strip behind the main image, I stamped the baby feet from SU's Cuddles and Tickles. I topped it all off with some machine stitching, stickles and paper piercing. That's it in a nutshell!

I am super, duper sore today. Yesterday, I thought I would take on the leaves that fall had dropped in our yard. What a task! I think I had something like 16 of the biodegradable leaf bags.


We have two huge Oak trees in our front yard and they hang onto their leaves til the last possible minute. This was the second time this year that I had raked the leaves.


Hubby can't do it because of allergies and I can't afford to pay a yard man unless I give up my stampin addiction, and you and I both know that ain't happening! LOL! I'd give up sex before I'd give up my stamps! Well........maybe not! Actually, I really love doing yard work. It's that whole love for the earth thing! I'm a Taurus and we Tauruses love the earth, or so they say!

Well, I think I have yammered on long enough here! Hope you all have a fantastic day and thanks for stopping by! TTFN

This is adorable! I love every little detail. Hubby and I are BOTH allergic to grasses and most shrubs, so we're having to hire someone for our yard work. Yuck!

My two cents on gardening or yard work... not a big fan but want a nice garden. Contradicting I know. I kill greeneries too. The plants that I try to grow always dies :(
