Chilly Chums Little Buddy

I am tuning out the sounds of the football game and "lessons" going on behind me.  Big Daddy is entertaining The Piglets tonight and I am most grateful. Mommy's nerves are shot! =) Little Miss Priss has been battling an unidentifiable ailment since Wednesday afternoon. She never gets sick but she stays nauseated quite a bit, especially if she eats anything. And as we all know with nausea, it just comes and goes -- and sometimes seems kind of random. Sooo, after several days of it and not knowing what's causing it or what to do for it, I'm at my wit's end! We will think she's better and then relapse. So it's been a frustrating few days. Bless her heart.

 I did manage to escape to my room this afternoon for a few hours! Yay! I even had some out-of-town houseguests this weekend. I've been all out of sorts.

With this card I was able to use THREE challenges! I went from being non-inspired to having three on my brain and it was exciting.

Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge is Anything Goes this week. I picked up the Colour Q colors at the last minute (after initially dismissing them as "too hard" ha!). AND, I fell in love with the Retro Sketch this week -- it's what gave me a kickstart.

Look at that! Beautiful! =)

I picked up my newest PaperSmooches set, Chilly Chums, of course. It's still out on my desk because it makes me smile.

I flipped through my newest 6x6 paper pad, Crate Paper's "The Pier". (My mom started counting my 6x6 stash today! Whaaattt??? Ignorance is bliss, Mom- ignorance is bliss! The 6x6er's are my newest collection obsession.) I've been in love with this red chevron piece ever since I tore the package open.

The sentiment is stamped from PS set, Scripty Saying (a January release - I was super excited that I had hoarded some rewards $ when that came out. hee hee hee). I have used it quite a bit already. I colored my little fox with my Cool Grey Spectrum Noir markers. It'll do, but I feel I need to practice with the grey some more. I'm not feeling it. 

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit. Hope everyone is blessed with a holiday off work this week! 

God bless you and keep you,
