espresso my gratitude...

Happy Wednesday...

I can't believe that it is already Wednesday...the week is flying by for me with all the fun things that have been happening here on my 'lil 'ole blog:)


I'm sooooo very happy to announce that I've been picked up to be a part of the

Skipping Stones Design Team!

Sooo thrilled to be a part of the fabbie team...I'm a "Stamp Tramp"...dang, that cracks me up....a tramp....LOL...Anywho's...such a great group of gals!!! Make sure you pop over to the Skipping Stones Design site to read the announcement:)

Well, you know that I wanted to play along with this week's sketch challenge:

Check out the sketch by the wonderfully talented Maren:

I had to ink up my new
Skipping Stones Design Funny Coffee Vol. #1.
Seriously, coffee lovers, you need to check out this coffee set!!!

Do you Cosmo Cricket fans recognize the patterned paper that I used? It is the re-released Wanted line...I teamed it up with some PTI kraft, vintage prima bloom, PTI button, kaisercraft pearl and some fancy smancy twill...

What I love about the Skipping Stones Design stamp sets is that there is something for e-v-e-r-y-o-n-e....check it out for yourself....

Here's the latest release, Always Here:



I made this card especially for my friend/co-worker that had a bunch of us over to her house last saturday for a luncheon...oh-so-much fun...it was suppose to be a crafty day too {scrabble tile necklaces} but, well, we chatted the time away...oh yeah...and ate...that woman can whip up thee most fantastic menu....here's something that I've been doing for my friends...I send them cards but instead of writing inside I jot my note on sticky note so that it is an eco-card....they can re-gift it to someone else...

There will be some fab announcements of upcoming Skipping Stones Design's events...so pop on back to the Skipping Stones Design blog tomorrow:)

Google Reader Update♥♥

I definitely have a love/hate dealio with my Google Reader account...I love it because it gives me all these fabbie blogs to read and ooohhhhh & ahhhhhhh over BUT if I miss a couple days then I'm slammed with hundreds of entries...literally.....so when the 'ole reader tends to top over 700 I do a quick stroll through and hope that I didn't miss anything....I'm 'caught' up now and will be visiting you all soon:)

    Ahhh...I would love to get a coffee stain stamp...;)

    I hate it when my google reader is so full....do you know that when it gets past a thousand unread posts, they just put 1000 +...they stop counting...lol! Pretty stressful for me when that happens!
