Lots of things today . . . .

First off, I want to send a thank you to Marlou. I admired a dog card on her site, and she sent it to me. Rather, she sent it to Princess, my dog!

Marlou, this photo is just for YOU. I do believe that Princess LOVES her card! I do too. Little does Princess know, but I'm going to eventually use it on a scrapbook page featuring her. Sshhhh, don't tell her!


This is a better photograph of just the card. I stole this photo off Marlou's site! Thanks again! To top it off, Marlou ALSO sent me an adorable package of Studio G clear stamps. I tried to take a photo, but the acrylic doesn't photograph well, too much glare. There are 4 stamps: have a great day!, oh happy day!, thanks so much, and a cute dragonfly. I love them, and they're the perfect size for little sentiments on cards! THANKS!!

Next, my good friend Sharon tagged me. Sharon is SO talented. Visit her site and just look at her slide show of cards! Here are my replies to the questions presented:

1. If you could have over $100 worth of scrapbook paper or assorted embellishments, which would you choose?
This one is tough. I'm currently on a spending freeze (so I would love EITHER!), and I have A LOT of paper, but I think I might still choose the paper. You can cut paper into tags, strips for borders, you can ink it, distress it, etc., and then it IS an embellishment. I want so many new papers that are currently out . . . it's an obsession! I'll take the paper!!

2. If you had to choose between using only stamps or rub ons, which would you choose?
Easy, the stamps! I actually don't like rub ons very much. On the other hand, I LOVE stamps!

3. If you knew how to do both awesome cards and layouts but could only do one for a whole year, which would you do?
I love making my cards, but since I'm so far behind on my scrapbooking, I would choose scrapbooking. In fact, I should choose scrapbooking immediately. If I don't get started on some layouts, I'm NEVER going to catch up!!

4. Would you rather own a scrapbooking store or have your own scrapping room at home? (Can't have both)
I would LOVE to own a scrapbook store! I'll have a huge classroom in it, and that will double as a scrapping space for me. However, if I own the store, I probably won't have time to scrapbook!

5. What is your current card making/scrapping style?
I don't actually know what this means. I just do whatever appeals to me. I'm totally into Primas and Stickles at the current time. I love pretty much EVERYTHING, so maybe I'm eclectic?

I'm tagging: Clare, Michelle, Kristy, Marlou, and Tomi Ann. Answer the questions ladies, and tag 5 others!

Last, but certainly not least, I watched the news coverage of the wildfires in Southern California. My prayers go out to everyone that is affected by these. I know for sure that Deb (Stampingranny) had to evacuate her home. Her daughter updated her blog to let us all know. She got out safely with her precious Lobie (her German Shepherd). As long as she is safe. My thoughts and prayers are with her! Be safe Deb!

Thanks for stopping by!
