Music in the Forest Swap

Yep another Forest Swap...the subject was music...i am in no way musically inclined...other than i like to listen and i like to dance...but creating or singing...uh yeah make the angels weep...

there were a few categories to choose from...cards...recipe cards...card candy...and you know me...i went with a recipe card...the recipe i chose has nothing to do with music...other than these cookie bars make your tastebuds SING!!!

When i was a teenager one of the youth leaders in our church made these (i think she believed if our mouths were full she'd get a word in)...they disappeared fast!...hello?...sweets and teenage girls?...

and of course the cards are my usual plain jane style...but they turned out "sweet"

Oatmeal Carmelitas
Paper: textured taken with teal..naturals ivory..dp
Stamps: little pieces
Ink: pumpkin pie..computer (chocolate chip)
Accessories: orange rick-rack
hope everyone is doing well...we have way too much snow here...be safe/be well all...

CASES #6 Over The River..Gramma Stuffed The Turkey

yeah been a looong time for a CASES...and i did do the card yesterday (Saturday) but had no time to post...this one has a fall/thanksgiving theme...the lyrics i used are " over the river and through the wood" and "grandma stuffed the turkey"...rather than the hymns on the original card...you can find the details for the original here on SCS

SU has so many lovely card stock colors...but an all time favorite of mine is really rust..and i love it paired with night of navy...since really rust has retired (i have a stash that i hoard) i use cajun craze a lot...for this card i paired it with another favorite...old olive...and let me tell you those leaves were buggers to cut out..

belindaking ~ for the beauty





grandma stuffed the turkey
Paper: cajun craze..old olive..naturals ivory
Ink: printer..cajun craze..old olive
Stamps: country blessings
Accessories: gilttery leaf button


i hope to do another card next week...but you know how flakey i can be...if something else comes up...like a gun show or cleaning a bathroom....til then be safe/be well all!

Off Their Rockers Swap

this was fun...another "seniors" image card swap...and since it was "Off Their Rockers"...i went with a crazy stella digi...i used a different sentiment...one of my favorite sayings...i even have it on a t-shirt...

thanks for all the encouragement on my new do...everyone here has gotten used to it...though the day after my nephew Q was surprised it hadn't grown back over night...which is funny since his dad has been bald since before Q was born...i guess it's because he (my bro) shaves what little bit grows during the week (week o'clock shadow?)...

well here's my stella...

stella ~ reality check ~ front
Paper: tempting turquoise..whisper white..chocolate chip..dp
Ink: printer..SU & Copic markers..chocolate chip on sentiment

stella ~ reality check ~ inside

have an awesome week everyone...dh flew out to florida on saturday...USAF related...so i'm going to be getting some deep/fall cleaning done i hope...be safe/be well

New Do

so last year around this time i posted about possibly shaving my head...my bff has ovarian cancer and was looking at doing another round of chemo...well she didn't have chemo just radiation so i put it off...this year she is again wait and see...but her new dr. thinks it will be sooner rather than later and is keeping a close eye on her....

september as many of you know is ovarian/gynecological cancer awareness month...some of you may have heard about country singer Kellie Pickler getting a buzz cut in support of her friend dealing with breast cancer (i always knew that "dingy blonde" was actually one smart cookie)...she did this the 1st of this month...i found out about it yesterday...after...well read on...

since it's september and my boss is all for it...despite my dh's reservations...we pulled out the scissors and clippers...dh did the honors...he wears his "high & tight" so i figured i could trust him...my dd's recorded it for me...went thru a few "hairstyles" in bout 15 minutes...let me know what ya think...

yep i need a haircut

mullet is NOT a good look

what's that stooge's name again?

feels abit drafty

dh was surprised that i had a well shaped head...he was worried...i got the big ears from my dad's side of the family...and i was/am/always will be a "daddy's girl"...the grands and i had picked out some bandanas last week and they are enjoying that contribution...

be safe/be well all...remember to send good vibes/thoughts out to the world...they make a difference...
