My latest project

Today I thought I would work on an altered art project for my son. I decorated a letter "K" awhile back and had alot of fun so I decided to do a "D" for my son Damon. I used alot of vintage papers, Tim holtz products and kinda whatever I could find around the house. There is even a lego peice!!

St Patricks Day card and ATC

Here are a couple things I have been working on. The ATC card is for a swap I am participating in, I'm not sure if I am done with it yet I feel like it still needs a little something more. hmmmmm. The other card was a digi image from The Greeting Farm that I colored with my copic markers.

Michaels is frustrating!!

So I went to my Michaels today. I picked up a few things, went to the cashier and asked if I could use my Mike's 50% off coupon and my Joann's 40% off coupon.  The cashier says "you can only use one coupon at a time" uhhhhhh what??? I said "since when?"  she told me it had always been that way, but over the holidays they bend the rules. Yet the other day I saw a woman use 3 40% off coupons at one time! I asked the cashier at that time how that was possible she said.."as long as they are from different stores,we honor it"  That was news to me. So as I left today I realized that one of my items didn't come up on sale so I got back in line with a different cashier she fixed the problem and then I asked about the coupons. She said as long as they are different %'s and from different stores its fine. I told her what the other cashier was saying. She then adjusted my total using my coupon that I didn't get to use in the first place. I ended up with an extra $11 in my pocket because I asked a different cashier. I'm thinkng Mike's needs to hold a staff meeting and get all its cashiers on the same page!!  Its sooo ridiculous! There shouldn't be any variance between cashiers! Sooo frustrating!

Thats all!

My first Swap

So I finally decided to sign up for a card swap on Splitcoast stampers. I'm kinda hesitant to put my skills out there but I thought what the heck.. this might be fun. So now i just need to figure out how to post a picture of it on here and SCS. LOL.

Being home this long after 2 back surgeries has become soooo boring luckily I have this as an outlet. I really enjoy being able to incorporate a more artistic angle into the scrapbooking. Gone are the days of just cutting mats for your photos and buying stickers as your only embellishements.  The women on you tube and blogspot are such inspirations for me. I have learned soooo much from watching hours of tutorials! My favorites are Arlene, Bona, Laura (following the paper trail), Marion Smith, Jo, Rina, Yollibean... the list is long!! These women are soo talented and so kind to donate there time to help others learn from them!

Anyways.. enough babbling..  This card is for the swap and I hope they like it!
