Another photo card...

This is another take on the photo card challenge. I used the same idea that I got out of the photo gallery on the PaperTrey gallery. Picture was printed again on regular cardstock and cut into an oval shape. Stamps are from PaperTrey. Enjoy.

Photo Card...

This is a card I made for a challenge on a yahoo group. The owner of the group emailed a picture that her brother had taken and we were all to make a card using it. I printed the card out on regular cardstock and then sanded it some to give it a more distressed look. All I did then was cut it down some, punched the corners, layered it and stamped the saying on it. I think tied some ribbon in the corner. The saying is from PaperTreyInk. Love those stamp sets!!!!

On our way to Arizona!

The Patriots are going to the Super Bowl!!!! We are Arizona bound!!! And can you say we played an ugly game? I believe Tom Brady had one of the worst games the season! But we pulled it off ugly or not. :) YAY!! So Ami, you have one more game to deal with from Brad and I! :)

Watch out for those deer!

Yeah, those deer arent too bright! And my car paid for their lack of smarts! The deer came out of no where and I couldnt do anything but slam on my brakes to avoid it because there was a car coming at me in the opposite direction so I couldnt swerve. You cant see all the damage in this picture because I took it last night in the dark. I will take better pictures today. You can see my grill is gone, its in the back seat. The passenger side headlight is completely busted and we just spent A LOT of money on replacing it. The deers head hit the side of my car and put a huge dent in it. And now the passenger side door doesnt open. The air bags didnt go off and we were able to drive away. Mechanically I think the car is fine but the body of the car wasnt so lucky. Scared the crap out of my daughter and I but we went onto the game we were going too. I think I did that to avoid showing the hubby for as long as possible! He LOVES this car and was way more upset than I was.

Spiral Bouquet....

This is a card that I made using my new Spiral Bouquet set from PaperTrey Ink. My Bella Sistah Angela had it sent to me! I case'd the card idea from one of the cards that is in their gallery. Love this set like I do all my sets from them!

WHO WON??? Thats right!

Honestly, was there every any doubt? I was so happy that the bar that we went to had TV's. Its a piano bar and really couldnt remember if there were TV's there but YAY I got to watch the game! I dont think my sister liked it that I kept walking over to the TV's but hey, my boys were playing!!! I think its because I insisted on wearing my Maroney jersey. I know its wierd but in my silly little head, I think I will jinx them if I dont wear either my Brady or Maroney jersey during every game. :) I know, silly! WAY GO PATS!!! One more game to go to get to the Super Bowl! Let's all watch the Colts game tomorrow to see if we have to play the Colts again in the AFC championship! :)

The Patriots play in their playoff game tonight against Jacksonville! And I am SO sad that I wont get to see it!!!! We are taking my sister out for her 30th birthday. I am hoping I can find a TV somewhere to catch some of the game. If not, my other sister is recording it so I can watch it tomorrow. LETS GO PATS!!!!

My Clean Stamp/Scrapbook Room

I know I am not posting the before here but this is my after picture of my newly clean scrapbook/stamp room. This is a picture I took standing at my door. I can finally walk in this room and breathe. Just imagine this with all the counter tops full of stuff and the also the floor. I could not even walk into this room. Seriously. It took me like 4 days and about 20 bags of trash to get it done. But the outcome is just fabulous!
