I got the colors foe this card here and the sketch is this weeks challenge over at SCS!!! The stamp set is father knows best from PTI and the buttons I got a walmart (a huge bag for .50) yay me!!!! So lets see, The colors are VV sky chip and cocoa I also used SU and Create DP's!!!! alright I got to go it sounds like the kids are trying to off each other!!!

I am so happy I got to stamp today!!!!!! what a crazy couple of weeks and I think that everything in starting to calm down!!!! we had to go through the 16 hour computer dump and DH did get my PICs off of the super sick computer and now every thing in working better than normal!!!!! I know you all want to ask and yes I did download the virus protection and I ordered a super cool flash drive to back-up all of my stuff it should be here soon!!!! See a girl can learn from her mistakes!!!
Alrighty on to the card the color challenge was a true CHALENGE for me I not only have a hard time with black but also with pomegranate they are just so bold for this girl!!!! so my thought was just to use a little of each and keep the card simple! how did I do?????? this is one of PTI's April stamp sets Garden of Life and I have had it for days and just now opened it ( that is unheard of for me)!!!
and one more thing don't forget that H&M Stamps opened this week and the first 200 orders over $25 get $5 off!!!!! and the stamps are super cute!!! H&M Stamps

I think I may cry!!!

I am such a dummy yesterday I was playing on the computer like I do everyday and all of the sudden every thing was GONE!!!!! me be puzzled I started clicking here and there and more stuff started going away so I am now freaking out trying to get new born pics of thatcher and all of my cards!!!! no luck they are gone!!!! Do you want to know why? well it is simply because I am just to inpatient to wait so I don't put much needed protection on my laptop and in my blog hopping net cruising I downloaded a killer virus!!!!! yep that is right everything is gone!!!!!!!
The truly sucky thing is is that we have great software to stop this from happening and it was with in arms reach!!!!
Man I am such a damn dumb ass!!!!!
give me time ladies to fix some stuff and my blog will be posted much more often!!!

Cute picture of some gorgeous kids. They grow up sooooo fast, I wish I could freeze frame them sometimes!! A favorite thing to do with the family is play a game. Right now Sorry is the big game in our house and it can get pretty cut-throat! We also play Trouble and Uno and they are equally as cut-throat! Nothing like having a 7 and 9 year old ganging up on mom and dad to try to wipe us out! Lots of good laughs. Our annual special family outing is going to the water slides and I can honestly say I think I am the biggest kid there! We make it an all day even and have an absolute BLAST there.Glad you had a fun time away and thanks for the chance to win :)
congrats girl send me your info and I will get your goodies right out to you!!!!
