Yup, It's That Time Again....

Happy Hip Hop Hangover!!!!! Wowie, did we have fun again yesterday! My computer kept glitching out on me, so I missed a lot, but while I was there, it was a blast.

Before I forget, there's a new blinkie on the right side of my blog. Unity Stamp Company is hosting a World Record Blog Hop on March 28. Info is linked both here and in the blinkie. Be there or be square.

There was only one new release yesterday, but it was a doozie! Ladies and gents, by the one and only Tanis Giesbrechts, it's You're a Star!!!!!
DD#2 was having a crisis, so I managed but one card. I'm fairly pleased with how it turned out. I have no idea what the pretty patterned paper is, as it was from another SCS'er, Jan(aka tweetybugshouse), but I used it for the scalloped circle and the paper piecing on the flower, which is also stamped and embossed. I think it went really well with the big Scrappy Flower. The stem is coloured with Copic markers. The circle and scalloped circle were both cut with Spellbinder nestibilities. I did ink the edge of the circle with Lime Pastel Colorbox Chalk ink.
As for DD#2's crisis, she's 12. There is always a crisis of some sort when you're twelve years old. That child is going to be the death of me. It's a darned good thing I love her. chuckle

She really is a good kid. I have to take a moment for a mommy-brag. For the 7th straight nine-week period (actually, it may be more than that, but my memory lags and I can only remember back to the beginning of 6th grade for sure...too many report cards with 5 kids and my own to keep track of, particularly when 2 of the kids are having trouble - but back to Miss HL) darling sweetheart of a child has gotten straight As. She's in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme, so she works for these As. I am very, very proud of her.
