I have to link to the blogger that tagged me, done.
List 7 random things about myself - I will try- but I doubt it will be interesting....
Tag 7 more bloggers. I don't know 7 bloggers so I'm not going to tag anyone back......
- I used to competive roller skate when I was growing up- my first freestyle routine was to the music of The Pink Panther
- I grew up in a small town in the mountains of Pennsylvania and I loved it there
- I have a dog and I have a cat. I love my dog- do you want my cat?? ;)
- I know a lot of non-girly stuff and can hold my own (somewhat) in a conversation regarding truck engines, tractors and because of my job- truck driving and fuel-hauling
- I am divorced and while my divorce was one of the toughest things I have ever had to survive- it is also the best thing that ever happened to me.
- I live in a two bedroom apartment- I painted my stamp room/dining room yellow even though I wasn't supposed to (I hate white paint)
- I bought an MP3 player to listen to when I walk everyday.....and I haven't gone walking once since I bought it.
Well, that's it. The most boring blog post you will ever read in your lifetime! Oh, wait- nobody reads my blog! bawawawawaaaaaaaa!!! ;)
Have a great day. Maybe if I stamp some this weekend I will post more......but I have to work and you know how that goes.....

This morning I finally got a chance to sort through most of the new catty chatter. Wow! I might tackle the mailman when he gets here this afternoon.....SERIOUSLY!! I can't wait to see it. I am disappointed to hear that there is only that one single scallop punch- but I am sure I will still be ordering it. That just means I am going to have to keep stalking the Marvy Uchida punches... But I am so excited to see what we will be getting. Yippee!
I don't know what I am going to do when I get my hands on the new catty.......with my son living here my finances will be stretched even more.....but with my son living here.....I will need stamps even more than before! Yikes!! SSHHHHH...don't tell my accountant but I have already placed an order from the preview catty- and it will be here in TWO days. TWO days. (I know I said it already- I am just so darn excited!!) I will definitely post my creations as soon as I get time to make them!! (Alex, I know you are tired of peanut butter and jelly for dinner....but Mom has to stamp!! heh heh hehe!!) :)
Getting ready to go- but if there is actually someone reading this- check out the link to my trade on SCS. I need to get some new stuff!! What can I say- I am addicted. But it is better than being an alcoholic, right? No, it's not cheaper- just healthier. ;)

Now onto some stamping stuff! :)
I finally made my niece's graduation card and decided which of my new creations would be my Mom's birthday card. Whew!
I made two cards with my new "almost favorite" set- Roses In Winter. (Bodacious Bouquet is still my FAV- thank goodness it's not retiring!) That is a really fun set to play with- I can't wait to use it again! I couldn't decide which one to send at first. The one with Cameo Coral I tried the Cracked Glass technique. The Brocade Blue card I made a scalloped circle using my coluzzle and the corner rounder punch. I have finally decided on the blue one for my Mom since blue is her favorite color!! Check them out and feel free to tell me if I made the right decision.

I am a divorced single Mom with a very stressful and intense job. I love to stamp and I am a hobby demo for SU but my life seems to get in the way a lot.
At work I am a dispatcher for a fuel tanker company- which especially in the heat of summer travel season can be VERY stressful. I have one (actually two) co-workers that are making life unbearable (that's a post for another time...) at work but other than that- I LOVE what I do. I am good at it and it pays fairly decently. I don't have a college degree (some credits but no degree) so I really can't go anywhere else and make enough money to support myself. So let's all pray we get through the Summer "busy" season and I still have some sanity and my job.
My current stamping projects are......well I am really behind on them. My Mom's Birthday was on May 31st and I am still working on her card. It just has to be the best card ever. She is very sick and this may very well be her last birthday. So...not just any card will do if you KWIM.
I also have to make a graduation card for my niece. I am not really excited about that. There is nothing fun about a graduation card. You can't put flowers all over it. I do have a graduation cap stamp- but it's not girly, flowery and pretty! Oh well. I will get it done this week.
I will finish my stamping projects this week and I will tell you why. I went out this weekend with my friend Jimmi (who got me started on this whole blog business) and spent all my money. No, I haven't balanced my check book yet so I don't know how much money I "don't" have but I know enough to tell you that I will not be going anywhere for a week or two except to work and MAYBE the grocery store!! Yikes. Target and Michael's get you in trouble EVERY TIME!!! (and Bath & Body Works...NY & CO.....darn those semi-annual sales!!)
