A post!

I recently got my order from All That Scraps. OH MY it took ages to get here! About 3 weeks!! I dont know what it is with the postal service, but packages from the US are so unpredictable, and so expensive! If its not duty & taxes, its the cost of shipping itself, or the length of time it takes for a package to get here!

Well, out of the stash, I pulled out Apple Emma from CC Designs. Quite a while back, my talented friend Kadie sent me a set of CC Designs stamps. I had never tried them before and they sat in my room for some time before I dared ink one up. Well, since that day I have literally fallen in LOVE with the images! So when I saw Apple Emma, and knew I had some cute apple papers from stampin' up in my stash - I just had to have her. Of course, all bf could say was "she doesn't have a nose or mouth... how is she going to eat that apple?" to which I replied... "well obviously she's meaning to share the apples, not eat them!"

Excuse the poor photography. A while back my computer went kaptuz and I can't download any new photos. So this one's from the Camera phone and we know how poor those pics turn out!! It really doesn't do the image or the papers any justice at all! But I had to post something since its been so long!!

All papers and cardstocks are from Stampin' Up and the image is colored with Copic markers.

Now.. on a very happy other note, I am a hockey fan, so ......

Congratulations to the Men's and Women's Canadian Hockey teams for winning GOLD!!!!!

Our home and native land!

KareBear! This card is SUPER cute!! OMG that image is so adorable and she's colored just beautifully! Ooo, cute ribbon tags, and I *love* these papers, too, especially the cherries, but I avoid using them so I won't run out. How silly is that? About as silly as your bf's comment! LOL! {HUG}
