No cards, but good news...

Well, you don't have to tell me that I've been MIA and neglecting my beloved blog. I love it, don't know about you. But life and work has put me in a tailspin. Today is Ash Wednesday so need to make sure I get into church today.

That said, while I don't have a card to share, I have some good enabling news to share...

1, The entire site of Addicted to Rubber Stamps is on sale. 25% off of everything. 24 hrs only.

2, My Favorite Thing is having their VIP packages again. What I love about this is that you get to own the new stamps before they're released. They have ribbon, bling on top of the stamps you get. Totally awesome!!!!

3, DeNami is having their bday sale. Can you believe they're 20 years old? Type in the code Birthday2009, and you'll get 20% off. Expires 3/1/09

Ok... go forth and shop! Hope to post a card soon!

Anyway, this is my attemp to start on my St. Patrick's Day cards. I had a hard time w/ my jumbo wheel and some spots didn't come out as nice as I wanted it, so what better than to cover it up w/ an image. Haha...

Alright gotta go back to work... talk to you peeps later. :)

I know, I know, Vday is over... but I got this one last one... so I'm gonna sneak it in there....

So, I randomly find things in my boxes, and found the Loves Me, Loves Me Not ribbon. So, I thought how appropriate is that? And just hook up a card that way...

We didn't do much for Vday just chilled and watched Bride War, it's cute, but could be better with an All Star cast. I'm still anxiously trying to find time to catch a few more movies... just don't have the time. Boo!

Anyway, I've started Spring/St. Patty's Day cards, will post that soon.

Well, I wish everyone having a fabulous Vday... may your day fill with flowers and chocolate... heck, which day doesn't deserve that? If you're allergic like a dear friend of mine, then hope that you're surrounded by whatever you like best in life!

Well, I am working out of Atlanta this week. So, posting will be few... but will still try. :>

That said, last night I came in late into town and missed the sushi reception this conference have to offer... Boo! That's ok, I had dinner at the airport, so that wasn't so bad.

I was just so impressed that it took me 5 minutes to zip thru the security line and got an hour to sit around to wait. I just caught up with several people on the phone and responded phone calls. It was awesome!!!!

Flight got in quick and easy, although I'm not one for small planes... but here I am...

Gotta go down for breakfast so catch you all on the flip side.

Hi everyone,

Just a quick shout out to my DH, Happy Bday honey. *wave*

Ok, back to the post. I have nothing creative to say, work has bogged me down tremendously. But I still want to share a card w/ you all.

I just dug up my Vday stuff, and of course, I can't stop myself when I saw the $1 stamps at Joann. I need stamps like I need a hole in my head, I swear.

Anyway, so this is a very quick card, just pop right on. Wohoo!

Quick note: Heather the Mooselover ~ if you ever come down to Texas, give me a hollar and let's go shopping. This goes for everyone too.

And Amy~ thank you for your kind words.

That's all for me today.

So... I finally got to go visit Paper Source up in Dallas. Trust me, I'm beyond thrilled that they opened up a store in Texas. I don't mind driving 4 hours for that...

When I got there, I was like a kid in a candy store. Just like I make that a mandatory stop when I'm in Chicago, this has now become my mandatory stop. I got there and stored up on punches and these letter pressed tags.

They're so beautifully done, and I just wish I have my own letterpress (some day). I just have to make a card w/ that...

***edit: there's too much interruption at work, will post tomorrow.***
