Quiet Saturday

Hello Everyone. Happy Saturday!

Let me first start this post with a little grumble. I really dislike scanning my cards. They look TERRIBLE. But hubby has the camera with him in Connecticut. He went last night to test today for his 2nd Dan blackbelt in TaeKwon Do. He passed!!! Now I'm faced with what the heck am I going to do when he's got the camera in Scotland this summer!? Ack!!

Edit: The camera arrived home... ah-hem, I mean hubby arrived home safely with the camera and here is a much better picture! And guess what, hubby said it was OK to order a camera for Mother's Day now. Whoo-hoo!! I get one of my own. Happy happy!!

As you know, digi-stamps have become an obsession for me lately. This one is from Squigglefly and he's just one of the cutest turtles. I decided on a faux-criss cross card and I think it came out nicely. I have a hard time with those kind of cuts. Anyway, I'm not quite sure where the dp is from. I used Bashful Blue card stock that I embossed with Traffic Jam Cuttlebug EF. Then cut the scallop square with Nestabilites and embossed with Paisley Cuttlebug EF. I colored with prismacolor markers (Parrot Green, Limepeel, Canary Yellow, Violet Mist and Pink). Added the sentiment using Women of Life from PTI. There is a sentiment on the inside that is Inkadinkadoo Kids Sayings. It says: When you love somebody, you're supposed to tell them. Jaden Young, Age 5 The kids sayings are so cool! The card base is Pink Pirouette which is going away soon. Waaaaahhh!!

Did I say it was a quiet Saturday? Hmmm - I must be confused. I'm sitting here typing my blog entry while my youngest son and my daughter are in the other room playing Rock Band. Levi is just singing his little heart out (Joni, you'd be so proud, earlier the selection was Hungry Like A Wolf) while Hollyanne is beating her little heart out on the drums! LOL Levi just announced the next song is Round and Round. Ratt anyone??

Enjoy your day! Thank you for stopping by.

LOL, Ratt - I remember that song! I am surprised your kids know it, though.
Why does your hubby have to come to CT for testing? Isn't there testing at his home dojo? (is that the right word?)

Anywho, cute card! I like the cuttlebugging - I gotta remember to pull out those folders...

RATT and D2? OMWord, what a great kid. ;) "I knew right from the beginning that you would end up winning I knew right from the start. You'd put an arrow through my heart..." :D
Love the turtle card! The color palette is so cute and perfect for this guy. Addicted to digis, I agree.

Gael - They had to go to CT for testing because that is the closest Master that can test them. They (my hubby and his friend Gary) are the highest ranking blackbelts in this area.
