The Birthday Couple!

Ok so here's a funny story! Here is Bo and Tanya! Their birthdays are like 4 days apart. I'm mean Pullleeese give a poor gal a break! Ok so this was actually to celebrate Bo's birthday and what he is holding up is the gift I bought him. It is a bicycle chain and a bike license plate . So here's the funny story. I have asked Bo for about 3 years if he would fix my bike chain and of course he has no recollection of any of this. According to him nobody has ever mentioned a bike chain to him. So this is the drama that we have been going through for quite some time so, of course, I have to bring it up every chance I get so for his birthday I got him a bicycle chain for my bike so he would fix it.......ha ha hee hee belly laugh. Ok so maybe you have to know all of our weird senses of humor or maybe you just had to be there but it was funny I'm tellin' ya. So maybe, just maybe I'll get my bike fixed so I can get my large white asterick on it and lose some weight that I have steadily put on. I must have gotten a memo in my sleep one night about the world going to quit making sweets or something cuz I have been going crazy like a spider monkey jacked up on mountain dew. It's crazy....but I am going to stop and start eating better....ok? Do you hear me? I am! I swear! Soon! I'm going to start soon! No really! I am! Really guys!

Happy Birthday Dork!

Ha ha ha ha ha! I made this card for my BFF's husband Bo. He has a red truck and he is a dork so this was perfect. LOL just kidding you know I love you BoBo! I colored the truck with my Prismas and blended with Gamsol. I added Glossy Accents to the window and mirrors to try to make them look like glass. I put Dew Drops on the tail lights for dimension. I love this stamp and this is the first time I have used it because it is new. It is great for a guy card though don't ya think? Those are always a challenge for me.
Stamp: Printworks; Paper: Paper Studio; Inks: Black Memories Accessories: Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol, Dew Drops, Glossy Accents

Happy Birthday To My BFF!

This is the card that I made for Tanya for her birthday this year. I stamped the bow with light pink ink and then stamped over it with a plaid stamp with a darker shade of pink. Then I outlined the bow with Cotton Candy Stickles. This kissing technique works better on a solid stamp and this bow stamp isn't exactly totally solid. You get more of the design with a solid stamp. I still like how this one turned out though. Happy Birthday BFF!

Where O Where Have I Been?

Well I went on vacation to Louisville, KY and Cincinnati, OH and have been hot and lazy ever since I got back. You know Texas summers aren't really that much fun when you are as white and hot natured as me. I mean I sweat just walking to my car in the lie. We had a great time and got to spend time with family and friends. Get best friend moved off in 8th grade and she now lives like 9 miles from my Aunt Marlene. How cool is that? Check out some vacation pics and I will have some cards to post soon I hope.

This is my friend Kyla and her large family. Tom, Kyla, (her mom and dad), Donna, Tommy, Abigail, Thomas, Samuel, and Henry. They were a handful but were sooo much fun. Kyla is a great little mommy. This is her dad's restaurant and it is very very yummy. He had to introduce everyone up there to beef BBQ. They were all used to Pork. Very very good.

Me and the Big Boy at Frisches. So the trip was basically centered around all of the old places that I remembered and loved to eat as a kid. We moved from Cincinnati to Texas when I was in 4th grade. Can't beat a big boy and a vanilla coke. Mmmmmmm Mmmmmmm.

Again.....I love to eat as you will notice my size in the pics. This is the famous Cincinnati chili at Skyline. I had a 4 way. Spaghetti, beans, chili, cheese. Of course and a chili cheese coney. OMG AWESOME. Totally AWESOME.

Here is my mom and Aunt Marlene (my Dad's sister) with their bibs on at Skyline.....hee hee It can get very messy but Oh so worth it.

Her is my cousin Steph and her gang. Yes she has 4 kids also. Me, Steph, Dad, Mom, Morgan, Megan, McKenzie, and Matt. OK that might be Megan and then Morgan....I don't know they're twins so who can actually tell? ha I suggested a tatoo of their name on their forehead but it was a no go...LOL

Here are my other cousins Larry, Debbie, Kathy, and me. Uh they're crazy but it was great seeing them. It has been a long long time. We had lots of fun! We laughed and cut up the whole time. Trouble makers is what they are....hee hee
I got to see the Reds play. "Thank you Daddy." I love baseball. We got to see Patrick Henry's Home Makeover Edition House and Band Field. Saw Papa Murphy's big ole house. We toured by our old living places in Amelia, Ohio. We went to the Louisville Slugger museum. We went and ate at Claudia Sanders restaurant. That is the Colonel's wife's place. It was really nice. Of course we ate and ate and ate really really well. It was a very pleasant trip and was great to catch up with family and friends.
Watch for some cards coming soon!
