Going Back to Work

Ladies I am going back to work tomorrow! It is exactly one year to the day when I went off to have my surgury. It was a major surgury but no cancer was found so a big woohoo! I am designing some cards for gals that want to have a class... christmas and everyday cards...
My big project today is to cut 99% of my patterned paper down to 6x6 size as I mostly do cards and when I do scrapbook I can never find the right paper in my stash... I am slowly getting my scrapbook room in order.. I can hardly wait so I can scrap in there and be able to find everything!
I can't find my bone folder and I can't figure out where I might have put it!Do you do this?? Any ideas???? I still have about 6 boxes of scrapbooking stuff to unpack but I am almost positive its not in there!
No card today but a pic of our new kiddies in the apt... Phineas (cause Em loves Phineas and Ferb) and Kiara (from the Lion King)? arent' they adorable... black one is the boy and calico is the girl... have a great Sunday and a good week...

Birthday Giveaway!

Happy Thursday!

Since today just happens to be my birthday... I decided that the best thing to do was have a giveaway! :)

So I am giving away three of my most favorite things! Things... that when I am crafting, I just cannot function without.

#1 - Ek Success 5 Inch Tweezer Bee Tweezer's!

It's so bad, that when I lost my only pair about a week ago, I had a total melt down! I hate to admit it... but yes, I had a melt down all over a pair of tweezers.

#2 - Martha Stewart Score Board

I found mine at Michael's, right before Christmas last year. I had a 50% off coupon and I thought, what the heck? OMGosh! I can't imagine how I ever lived with out it, I use it at least once a day.

#3 - "Lots of Pun" Stamp Set from Joy's Life.

I have to tell you i would love to win any of these but the joys life stamps look amazing.....
