Project 101 of 365: Just Believe Birthday Card October 12, 2010

Well, as of yesterday I have been back at my old job of selling Mercedes Benz for one week….but I haven’t sold any cars yet….LOL!!  I expected it to take awhile to get back in the game.  I have to re-learn everything I forgot, and learn everything that has changed, plus become calmer so that I come accross as more confident to my customers.   Gee….its so much easier to “sound” confident on line…haha.  I’m sure the nerves will calm soon enough 🙂  Too bad “almost” only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades, because I’ve “almost” sold a bunch of cars.  LOL!!!!!

I’ve also been too tired to post anything when I get home from work, as my body still hasn’t gotten used to my new schedule.  I was so used to staying up late (especially since my husband works late), so trying to get to bed earlier has been a struggle, but slowly all is settling in 🙂

As always, I have a huge PILE of projects just waiting to be blogged about.  Starting with this cute birthday card I made for my sister-in-law a few weeks ago.  This card is cased, and I will add the name of the original crafter as soon as I find it.  (I’m on a break at work, and my notes are at home.)

Project 100 of 365: Midnight Musings Web October 4, 2010

Ok….One more card, then really I’m going to bed…LOL!  I seriously do need to get to bed, otherwise I’m going to oversleep my first day at work….

This card is based on a card by Phyllis Johnson, but I did make quite a few changes.  Again, since its Halloween, I dirtied up all the pieces (I’m still sticking to my guns….Halloween isn’t supposed to be pretty…hehe), purposely made it so all the pieces weren’t so perfectly lined up and even, added some spooky glam with pearl stickles, and replaced some of the expensive Designer Paper with my homemade patterned paper.

Don’t you just love how the spider web emboss folder makes the dsp crack a little, letting the white core just peek through….Helps add to the disorder of the Spooky Halloween Cards.

Project 35 of 365: Season of Friendship in Baja Breeze June 25, 2010

Hi All,

Have no fear…I am keeping up on making all of my projects 🙂  I have a bunch to post for you today, but we will just have to see how far I get as I have some friends coming over tonight.  More precisely I have my “non-crafting” friend and her daughters coming over again, and I am soooooo picking on her, because guess why she is coming over???  You got it….she decided she wanted to make hats for when we go to watch Eclipse on July 2nd.  It was all HER idea, and she even went to the craft store all by herself and picked up a bunch of stuff to use.  LOL.  Another non-crafter is hooked 🙂  So tonight we will make up some ideas for these hats and then tomorrow we will start working on them.  I think we have to make 12 in total, so this is going to be fun!!

But until she gets here in about an hour, I thought I’d try to start posting some of the cards I have been working on this week.  So enough with the chit chat, its straight to business today 🙂
