Project 15 of 365: Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 32 and FTL92: Thinking of You May 31, 2010

Wow…..I have had quite the productive day, which is extra surprising since my husband and I went to a cookout yesterday and then watched movies and played video games with friends until after 1am… I think I was able to drag my butt out of bed about noon, and then continued to lay around the house like a lazy bones until probably 2pm.  Yet, I still completed 3 projects today, went to another cookout/birthday party, and when I finish this post I think I’m going to work on another project since I am on a roll 🙂

As I have been writing up these posts today I’ve had the TV on in the background and there’s a show on the History Channel (I think) called “American Pickers.”  It’s mostly been on because the remote is in my crafting room, and I am in the adjacent office nook and I’m being too lazy to get up and go change it….but anyway….half the time I find those guys pretty annoying, and half the time I’m dazzled by the stuff they find.  Well….thanks to them I now think vintage gas station signs, and gas pumps are sooooo Cool!  Thank Goodness I’m broke otherwise I would be running off to every flee market I could find to get gas station memorabilia lol!  The other super cool antique that I just wish I could afford to get my hands on are antique slot machines that have not been modified.  I don’t even know what it is about them that I think is so cool, but every time I see one older than about the 1960s I just wish it were mine, if its one of those from the 1890-1940s I’m just in awww.  Maybe this explains why I really wanted to get married in Las Vegas.  It’s actually pretty funny because I am not really a gambling person, had never been to Las Vegas, yet it was all my idea to get married in Vegas.  Yeah, I know, sometimes I just don’t make sense….but I kinda like that about myself.

Anyway…. this project is a combination of  Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 32 and FTL92 which is a layout challenge from the Clean and Simple Stamping Blog.  In my version I decided I wanted to make a small note card…..so the measurements on this one are a small 4×4.  Plus I just had to find a way to incorporate the “Kind & Caring Thoughts” stamp set I had borrowed from a friend.  Sure, it would have made more sense to make use of the beautiful flowers in the borrowed stamp set, but, the images just weren’t working with my “Clean and Simple” design….But not to worry, I did get permission to borrow this set for awhile, so I have plenty of time to make some great stuff with it.  My main intention in borrowing the set was to do many “Black Magic” projects with the flowers so be sure to check back often to see what I come up with.

Project 9 0f 365: Sunshiny Petal Pizzazz May 24, 2010

Happy Monday….or is it????

Why does it always seem that more computer/internet issues happen on Monday’s than any other day…..Are the “techno geeks”  (and I call you this with much affection, because without you no one would see my pretty cards) hungover/dragging from the weekend?  Or do they simply want everyone else to suffer because they don’t want to be at work either?

And seriously…..why does a website claim to have LIVE help if all you do is send a message in their chat system and then sit and wait a half hour for someone to respond…. (at that point I noticed there was a little thing where it said the number of people who were on live chat….it said 1….which means I was the ONLY person there…so for the hell of it I started typing and chatting to myself  🙂 just to see if anyone would even notice it when they checked their “live help” system, at what ever point they check it.) I wonder if I should ask for a refund of the donation I made to them yesterday???? LOL.

So for the past hour or so I have been trying to upload 2 cards to SplitCoast Stampers.  When I got up this morning I thought that this was going to be such a productive day.  I had made two cute projects last night, and right away I got up, photographed them, edited them, looked up how to submit them for the 2 challenges they were made for.  I thought I was Super Organized, but alas, all of that has fallen to the wayside as NONE of it has worked.  I am at the same spot I was 2 hours ago.  So I decided to flip-flop my plan and see if I have any better luck posting here.

So the below project is for SplitCoast Stampers Featured Stampers Challenge.  Each week they name a Stamper and then you go to that person’s gallery and CASE one of their cards.  The stampers screen name is NCSUnikki and click HERE to see the card I cased.  Basically all I used of hers was the layout and the polka dot background.

At first I didn’t even notice how the yellow flower was almost a little more like a sun than a flower (as that wasn’t the goal) but the more I looked at it the more I thought sunshine….
