One of my favorite covers.........EVER

I have to share this with you today, though it has been a favorite for quite sometime now.

Introducing (unless you are already a fan like I am) Elise Testone........she was on last year's American Idol and performed this song then.

It has been played many, MANY times on my iPod :)

Let me know what you think!!

New BLING :)

When my husband and I went to Vegas back in April, my beloved wedding ring was lost. I swelled up pretty bad on the plane and took it off, and the Mister insisted on putting it somewhere for safe keeping. He suggested his pocket, I suggested the inside pocket of my purse that has a zipper...........and he went with his pocket. Said ring was never to be seen again.

And I have been walking around with a very naked finger since! It's weird how imcomplete one feels without that precious piece of jewelery on every single day.

But alas, my finger is fully clothed again :) At first I started to look at styles that closely resembled my original ring but in the end chose something that was very different. I will forever miss my "I DO" band but I am completely smitten with my new one :)

There she is, in all her glory!! Ain't she purdy?!

SALS #48...

I am so excited to finally be able to play along with the SALS team again!!! It's been so long since I made a card for one of their challenges!! I even took a break from desiging the sketches while we packed, moved and got ourselves settled in again. BUT I AM BACK!!

And here is my card for the challenge #48 sketch!! Come on over to the SALS blog and have a peak at the sketch and see what the rest of the team did! And then jump right in and join us :)

This time around we are sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs and I used their ADORABLE Tinkerbell Honey for my card!

Hope you can join us!!!

A new member...

The mister and I have found a kitten. She is still too young leave mama yet, but we are excited to bring her home in about 4 weeks! I think that Diesel will be happy to have a buddy again too, she is acting pretty lonely again these days. She is pure black, just like our Dee and so far has blue eyes. (Though I am sure they will change color!)

I've asked the Mister and the Junior to come up with far Kiki and Bella are the front runners.

So I ask you, readers, can you suggest a cute name for a pur black little girl kitten?


Allsorts Challenge # 224...

Playing along with some challenges today! It's been a long time since I have :) First one I decided to play along with is over at the AllSorts challenge blog......their challenge is anything BABY. So I decided to make a baby card, and wanted to do something different!

I have seen and admired many "Tri-Shutter" cards in my travels but have yet to make one myself! Until today, I found a simple tutorial over at Beccy's Place that gave me the measurements I needed and I was off!!

Here is my finished up card:

The patterned paper at the end is not really purple like it looks, this card ended up being pink & brown only......which wasn't what I had originally planned, but it turned out great! I really like this card and think that I will be making more of these in the near future :)


Finally a CARD!!

We are finally all settled in......AGAIN. Here is hoping we don't have to move again for at least a year!! I am so tired of moving!!! But we are all settled and I finally had some time to play in my craft room!

This one actually was a custom order, a local friend of mine wanted a card for a wedding her and her hubby are off to this weekend. She wanted me to use the invitation somehow, like I did last time for her.........and their colors, blue & yellow.

At first I was un-inspired......I only had one "image" to work with from the invite, and blue & yellow scare me together!

BUT.........I pulled it off.....and it's actually a beauty! I love how this one turned out :)

Today is Saturday and I plan to spend the whole day in my room.........I have SO many projects to catch up on and some planning to do for the retreat I leave for on THURSDAY!!! EEEEEK!!!

Off to get my hands dirty!!
