Ok, so here I am ladies!!! Just as promised! However....I will be LUCKY to keep my eyes open thru this entire post!! Haha!! So if this sounds FUNKY?? You know why! Hehe! I wanted to share this quick card with you. I used my Bug set from Clear Dollar stamps and layered the image on SU CS. I CB embossed the Teal piece and you will never guess why that piece of black CS is there, instead of ribbon!? You guessed it.....I LOST the black ribbon! Are you serious?? YES!!! Geez! This was the second time today I tried to find something and couldn't! Oh well! So, I cut a piece of Black SU CS and punched out some Bascia Grey circles, to mount on the black strip. I LOVE the K& Company rhinestones! Aren't they perfect?? Ok, I hope you like my creation!

I enjoy your blog.I'm so new to scrapbooking and blogging and I'm learning so much. Thank you for your inspiration.
You wanted to know my Favorite Book It's Janet Evanovich's 'One for the Money' This is the first in the Stephanie Plum series. I love detective novels. This one is interesting and the main character and the people in her life are so funny and so true to life. -- Rhonda

Loved your car...it's way cute. I especially love the color of it.
Unfortunately I don't have a favorite book because I read every day and go through books like they are going out of style. I enjoy all types of fiction, suspense, whodunnit. detective, romance...nothing too evil because I'm a chicken Lol! However, the book I have read the most in my life has been my Bible. Most evenings for a short time before bed I will read a few passages. So I guess when it comes right down to it that must be my fave book ;-)

The card is really cute! I love how you improvised with the black cs. The teal / black color combo is great! TYFS!

Your card is adorable!! You know I'm a follower and I will add a note to my blog later. My favorite book right now is a Christian educational book called Boundaries with Children. My three year old is very head strong so I thought this book would help tremendously and even though I haven't made it through the entire book it is extrememly though provoking and helping me to think about how I handle my boys. :)

Wow! 10,000 hits on your blog. I am following your blog. My favorite book would be anything by David Baldacci. I love how he has so many twists and turns in his novels. I love your car. My "dream" car is a yellow bug.

Jacquie this is adorable!! I love the bling on the bottom, looks like head lights and the car is just too, too cute! I have always wanted a volkswagon bug all my life! Maybe when I grow up I can get one!

Okay, favorite book. Too many to count so I will give you a couple. Romance wise it would have to be anything by Julie Garwood or Julia Quinn and I have recently fallen in love with Sophie Kinsella for favorite beach reads. Historical fiction though is Allison Weir.

I am already a follower of your blog and as for my favourite book...that's a toughie...I really like to read and I have a ton of favourites, so I usually end up rereading my favourites over and over again (like the Harry Potter books, the Twilight books, the Lord of the Ring series, etc).

Unknown said...

Oh, that bug card is soooo adorable!!! I would love to have a convertible bug!! I've never been much of a reader, though I'd like to be. I do enjoy the romance paperbacks by Jude Deveraux... I know....go ahead and laugh at me! :)

Tammy said...

I did it!!! I finally figured this out. HA!HA! I really like this card. Have a wonderful evening.

Teresa said...

I'm linked to your site, and have linked your post in my "blog candy watch" side bar.

Teresa said...

Oh yes, I nearly forgot. My favourite book is To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. It is so different from the film, but both address situations that are relevant to today's society, I can really relate to it. Shame we haven't learned anything since those times though.

What a darling card! And how creative of you to create your own ribbon- a true stamper knows how to fix a situation in a pinch!!
OK I must be a dork becasue I cant figure out how to follow your blog (I don't see a link) but I did subscribe to it w/ my email address...
You can see my blog post here http://paperpiecesandbitsofme.blogspot.com/2009/02/blog-candy-alert.html
Oh and my favorite of all time book would have to be Gone With The Wind with Ann of Green Gables as a close 2nd. But my most recent favorite book would have to go to the Twilight series... Go team Jacob. LOL

Love the card and V dubs. I used to have a VW bus.

I read a bunch and have lots of favorites. I guess I would have to say anything by Janet Evanovich. I am at the bookstore the day she releases a book.

Love K & Co, it's my favorite line of papers.

I just heard about you through Jacquie! So now I'm following, how can I resist "java" in any form?? ;) Especially with the color blue!
My favorite book is Memoirs of a Geisha. I read it a long time ago. After I finished reading it I had forgotten that it was fiction. I felt like I was really in Japan and experiencing it.
I recently read Dogwood and LOVED it! The twist totally threw me! I was stunned!
