It all started Friday I ended up taking the day off because I had so much to do. With such much going on this weekend I had to get a lot together. My parents were going out of town for a funeral, I was going to the swap, & then to a friend's baptism. I was going to try to get my haircut & oil changed (that didn't happen). Lots to do.
Being that my parent's were going to a the funeral and that I wasn't going to be able to make it due to the fact my best friend from 7th grade's husband was getting baptized, I made a card to send with my parents.

Then where I drove to Covington (71 miles away), this is where my sister lives. When I got there after we ate dinner, I helped her finish up her swaps, organize everything, and then write up her directions. This is the first one she had ever been to. By the time we had gotten everything done we it was about 3 a.m. So you can imagine we were falling into the bed or collapsing.Next morning around 8 a.m. we had to get up again so that we could get ready to go because we had to drive about an hour to get to the get together. HAHAHAHA. You'll understand why I'm laughing in a minute. We got on the road around 9:30 thinking we'd get there around 10:30. Ok, we got to the Woodstock area just fine but here comes the problem. We made a wrong turn and kept making loops, finally we were able to find someone to give us directions. What time did we get there you say? Around noon.
Although, we didn't get there until a lot later then we expected we had a great time. Pam & Maria did a great job organizing everything. Everybody did such a great job making everything.
Here are a few pictures of people.

Here are the directions:
♦ The base is 3 1/4 x 2, scoring at 1 9/16 & 1 11/16.
♦ Stamp the background with Polka Dots & Paisley with coordinating ink color to cardstock.
♦ Stamp the scalloped square with one of the Tagger’s Dozen in Black ink and set aside.
♦ Fold base at score lines & insert post-it notes.
♦ Punch a 3/16” hole with Crop-a-dile in corner.
♦ Add scalloped square to outside of front.
♦ Run your book ring through the hole that you punched.
♦ Finish off by tying ribbons onto book ring.
I'll be taking pictures and show you the fun we had. Try not to be too jealous.

Anyway, I think the campaign itself is pretty cool. And thought I would add my 2 cents to it. I did this today at work. SHHH!!! Don't tell my boss I haven't been that busy.
The purpose of the campaign is:
"the main goal of this project is to spread a positive message throughout the world by any means necessary except through commerical use. we are extremely open and interested with collaborating with individuals and groups. anyone is welcome to participate, there is no age or skill level necessary. the project is as inclusive as the message."
They actually have stickers you can get, which is what Dani used. If you want to check out the actual site, click here.

Ok, the story. My dad is not really an animal person. However the poor thing for him is my mom and I are HUGE animal people, in particular dog people. One of my dad's biggest pet peeves is dog hairs all over the place. His chair, his clothes, our clothes, you name...he doesn't like it. Well, last week I "had" to place an order with Viva Las Vegastamps and saw this expression stamp and had to get. What stamp you may be asking at this point? This one...it says "Never trust anyone without dog hair on their clothes." So, I made this card to go with it. I gave it to him today, he got the biggest smile on his face. I love him, bless his heart.
I've been playing quite a bit this weekend. Here's some of the other things I've done.

Ok, 1st off this technique is pretty easy. You first need to ink up your brayer. Graned you don't have to use a brayer. But if you do have one then you only have to use it once to ink up the entire folder.
Second, run your brayer over the recessed part of the Cuttlebug folder. Make sure that it's totally and evenly covered.
Put your Cardstock of your choice in the Embossing folder and load in the Cuttlebug as you normally would and run through.
This is what your finished product should look like. Because you did the ink on the recessed side your exposed cardstock will be the color of your original cardstock color. Now your ready to use it on your project. Have fun!!

So the big plans of getting stuff done while I recuped flew straight out the window. That & playing in my craft room. I've done little more than sleep.
OK, I promise my whine session is over & I should be getting back to normal soon (or at least I hope). I'm going back in to have the stints removed Tuesday. See ya soon.
