Well it is Friday and tonight and tomorrow are the weekend crop at my LSS. You know I will be totally honest. I have never liked cropping away from home. One I can't pack my collection and take it with me. And I never know what I will need and what creative inspiration will hit me. I feel limited and frustrated working away from all of my things. Two I am not a "night" person. I hate to drive at night and by 10:30 it is bed time, so midnight is really late! I use to love late nights, then we moved to the country and my babies are Hee-ing and Haw-ing as soon as the sun comes up wanting to be fed. (I will be honest here, Craig my wonderful husband, feeds them 99% of the time) But I do get up and get going and make sure his breakfast is ordered so he can pick it up on the way to work. HA! I do make breakfast if he is staying home. I actually love to cook.

Anyway back to the crop. I have come to look forward to them. I have a ton of fun! Some crops I actually do get a lot done, I think last month I did 5 layouts! Then there are a few crops where I spent most of the time just sitting there laughing so hard that we do not get much done but hey I have fun with my friends is important too- and usually my sister Melanie is there too and it is great being friends with my sister! Who would have thought that when that little pain drove me crazy as a child. (HI SIS!). So tonight is my crop and I will be gathering as much stuff as I can fit in my XXL Crop in Style and be off to have a fun night with the girls.

Today's card is actually one in my pile, didn't get to play last night. I love making 3-D flower cards, for any reason! These stamps I got from Stamps by Judith and she rocks at making stamps to layer. I used lots of Pop-dots and spent a lot of time cutting out each flower to give it some depth. I just love these stamps!
Oh one more thing- yesterday was a GREAT mail day! I got my order of stamps from Rubbernecker Stamps! So I have lots of new images to play with!

yay! I'm the lucky sister! I love sharing the passion of scrapbooking with you! Thank you for introducing me to it. I think a good part of the reason I do it is because I so enjoy spending the time with you and all of our friends at The Corral. I have come to depend on our friendship. Well off to prepare for the weekend crop!
Again Thank You Sis! Love the card from yesterday. Those mice are so stinkin' cute and the way you color them just brings them to life. Love the Flowers to!
