You Crack Me Up and Blog Candy

Posted on

What a weekend. It’s been raining almost non-stop and we’ve been watching the drainage ditch a few houses away spill over the top. It’s been higher at times, but I’m sure our neighbors who live closest too it are hoping the rain stops soon so that the storm sewers can whisk the water away quickly. We ran most of our errands yesterday since the forecast for rain today was 100% chance of rain.

Yesterday evening I did get a chance to sit down and stamp and I found this cute little purse-a-lope in the Demonstrator Challenge forum.  If you are interested in trying this out for yourself you can check out Carolina’s blog.  She has a pdf with instructions in the post I linked to.  You start with an envelope that you seal shut and then fold it in half.  Use a scallop edge punch, I used the Eyelet border punch because it’s my current favorite, and decorate the two short ends of the envelope.  Add sticky strip and your ribbon and then fold the envelope closed.  Decorate as desired and you are done.  I filled mine with Easter egg Whoppers.

A lot of you sponsored Colin in Jump Rope for Heart.  Thank you for that!  We got the school newsletter on Friday and Colin was the top fundraiser for his entire school!  He is so proud and we have all of you to thank for that.

For a Friend stamp set or 250,000 Hits

When I was updating stuff on my blog I accidentally deleted my blog roll.  I’m going to re-design it to offer links to challenges so if you need a creative boost you can find your way to them.  I don’t think I have the time right now to re-build it to the way it was.  It’s a time consuming process.  I know a few of you have e-mailed me to find out where it went.  It was a matter of hitting the wrong button at the wrong time.  Sorry about that.

Well today I plan to stay inside and stamp as much as possible.  I am still working on my Artisan Award entries and I hope to have them finished soon.  I’m waiting on a few supplies from Stampin’ Up! that should be here this week and I want to mail them out the first week in April.  Who else is joining me in entering?  Have a great Sunday.  Remember to move those clocks forward and now is a good time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors.
