But for today I have a card that I made for my friend Maria for the BRAK she sent me last month. This paper is part of the pack she sent me! Thanks again, Maria. I also used buttons! I have yet to use any buttons. These are some buttons that I received from my friend Dottie as a BRAK too. Yes...that would be the Dottie with no blog yet!!!! Thanks for getting me to finally use buttons Dottie. I will be using more now!
Looks like another cold one here in Calgary today. I had to go out and buy a new winter coat since mine kicked it the other day! I wanted a new one this year anyway, but I was hope to wait until after Christmas...oh well. I bought a nice brown wool peacoat style. I actually kinda feel like a grown up ;0) Have a great Friday!!
Oh...and the girls finally got their school pics back. I might take digital of them and post them for ya to see...just so I can show them off. ;0)
I will be back with another card post in a bit. And don't forget, for all those involved with this months Challenge...you only have the rest of today to get me your pics of your completed Challenge!

Well...I am exhausted. Back later with some more Bellas...
Well, DD is home yet again today. I took her back to the dr yesterday and they are gonna send her for a ultrasound to make sure that her appendix is okay. They tried to book us in for an URGENT ultrasound, but of course in this city...well our appointment is for next Wednesday!! In the meantime if it gets worse we are to take her to the Childrens Hospital. I am thinkin' that I might anyway. She has been home for 3 days now...we keep thinkin' that it isn't that bad, but everytime she is up for more than 5-10 mins she wants to lay down again. We tried to get her up for school today, but she won't eat and starts crying again. Not sure what else to do. See how she is this morning. I might venture over to the Children's Hospital with her later on today. She is not worse, but not better either. Just not sure what to do...ya know?
Lastnight I had planned on doing up some Christmas cards, but right after we put the girls down for bed our little one got sick! She's okay...just needed to clear out the chest a little. But we just can't seem to win around here! Sorry for venting. ;0)

Thank you again, Kathy!!
I also thought I would share another Presentabella card I made. My DD was invited to yet another bday party, so mommy had to create! ;0)
I am starting to panic a bit...regarding my Christmas cards. I am still only about 12 into about 50 or so that I need to make!! And I have not started any Christmas shopping yet. I really need to have some healthy kids in this house!! Everyone...please send me some healthy vibes ;0)

This is a fun one to color! I did this one for a friend of my DD. Hope she liked it! I will be back with some Snowbunnybellas...I colored about 12-14 of them at work this week!!
Just wanted to say thank you to everyone for their well wishes for my DD. She is still suffering with the ear infection. She has had bleeding all weekend. We were told that if it continues for more than 2 days to get her checked out again. So we will see how she is after school...we maybe heading to the clinic again tonight. :0( I am really hoping that the meds kick in soon! I just wish we could get back to a healthy household around here. My little one is still sick with a cold and now I have it too! We were so much more healthy before the girls started school!! grrrrrr ;0)

My two lucky ladies are...
Ladies please shoot me an email with your mailing address and I will get some goodies off you to this week!
Hope you all have a good Monday. It is a day off school here...and thank goodness. Still have a house full of sickies. My youngest is REALLY sick with a cold. She has a really nasty sounding cough right now. Might need to take her in to the doc...see how she does the rest of the day. She may not be going to school tomorrow. My oldest has a cold too, but she is fine. Gotta love cold and flu season!!!
But hopefully I can find some time for some stampin' today. I did manage to create 3 new cards the other night, but can't share just quite yet...they are on their way to some special people. ;0)

Is this attempt pathetic or what??!!
I struggle so much with this one. I decided on a 4 1/4 X 4 1/4 card base. Well then do you think I could find anything circular in this house to make my half circle top?? No!! I really should have looked at Cindy and Nancy's cards a little more. Now I think I just needed another layer. Okay, maybe I will work on another one this weekend!! You should try this one...it is a good challenge!
I am at home with a sick kid today. She came home from school yesterday with a fever and tummy ache. The school tried to call me, but why they did not call my home number is beyond me!! They called my cell and by the time I figured out who had called me it was the end of the day and they were already getting on the busses so none of the teacheres were in their classes to answer the phone. Sheesh! Oh well. She is not too bad right now...fever is up but not as much and she says that her tummy is still a little sore and she has been complaining about being dizzy today. Best to just keep her home...cause I would probably end up having to go get her anyway.
Hope you all have a good weekend!

I finally used the snowflake stickers that I received from Catherine awhile back. I have been afraid to use these...they are just so darn pretty!! But I think it looks great with this stamp. Not 100% sure about my DP choice, but it is okay.
Be sure to drop by tomorrow! I will be announcing Novembers Challenge! And just a hint...if you like a mystery this ones for you!! ;0)

Oh...and what do you think of the new look?
Onto Julie's tag...
1. If you could have 100.00 worth of scrapbook paper or assorted embellishments, which would you choose?
this is a tough one...I have just recently got into using DP and am loving it, but embellishments are fun too...I will go with the embellishments
2. If you had to choose between using only stamps or rub-ons, which would you choose?
Definitely stamps....I've never actually used rub-ons, but would like to try them out.
3. If you knew how to do both awesome cards and layouts but could only do one for a whole year...which would you do?
Definitely, cards! I would love to get into scrapbooking, but I find it terribly intimidating for some reason.
4. Would you rather own a scrap booking store or have your own scrapping room at home?
The store sounds great, but when it comes down to it, I think I would be happier with my own space at home.
5. What is your CURRENT card making or scrapping style?
I don't think I really have a 'style', but I am really enjoying coloring with pencils and blending with a blending stump and mineral spirits.
Here are the rules..............
Please answer the questions on your blog and tag 5 more people to answer the same questions..........make sure you list on your blog who you are tagging....Thanks!!
Now to tag 5 people......hopefully these girls haven't been tagged already.
