Hip Hip Hooray

Today on the Totally Stampalicious Blog our challenge for the week is CAS. Clean and Simple creations. Hope you find time to play along with us this week. CAS are pretty much up my alley of cards. I pulled out one of the sets we released last week called Cheerleader Brat. Isn't she just so fun? Just a little bit of ribbon and lace and voila an easy peasy card.

On a personal note this last few weeks have been busy. With that being said I stepped down from the TS design team. Life is just busy and crazy right now. I had my schedule pretty cleared up and then my parents go and schedule some much needed surgeries and threw that schedule out the window. ha! Kidding ofcourse. My mom had arm surgery and is in a sling for 8 weeks, I will finish canning her pears for her when I do mine. That isn't as bad as the green beans thankfully. Did I tell you I had to toss 43 pints of green beans as my dad and I processed them wrong. EEK! Glad we caught it but such a waste and so sad as all that work pretty much nothing to show for it. I have some green beans and it will have to do for the year. Anyways, my dad is having his 3rd knee replacement and we are prayng this is the final one and he will just heal properly this time. My mom will head back to work and he will need some help while she is not there. If anything check on him and make sure he has lunch and is walking when he is suppose to. They got a new puppy so I am sure she will keep him up and running if anything. Kids start school next week. ACK! I can't believe summer is already over and they are in school. Happy and sad feelings as I know they are excited and seeing all their friends, the break will be good for me. Yet somehow they are growing up and I feel like its going by in a blur. Needless to say maybe letting my schedule be more free will help me use all these beautiful stamps I have and never seem to get to as all the new ones come out and I create with those. LOL I would say that is called addicted and I need HELP! LOL Seriously... I have a little pile of them sitting here from the last few months that have not been inked up. Gasp... what kind of person doesn't ink up new goodies right away? A busy one that is making a change. I am sure you are tired of hearing me babble about my woe's and such. I will leave you with this.... hoping your day is fabulous and ink filled! ;0)

Fabulous CAS card, love the lace!

Too bad about the beans, that's alot of work to have no reward at the end! Hope all goes well with your Parents surgeries!

well, this is just adorable, but I think she'll be cheering for you with all the work you'll be doing between canning and taking care of your parents and their new puppy...
