Hey girls
love the pic of Sammy the Pirate!
I made a couple cards for last night's VSN challenges, but my mojo was off. Nothing was coming out quite as I had envisioned. I'm at work for awhile today, but will try to do some more tonight. I really need to make a graduation card, a father's day card and a wedding card. Tis the season, I guess.

WOW! 22 years? I never would have guessed Lee - you must have been a child bride. I haven't been married a year yet and sometimes it seems like 22. LOL Tomorrow, is my parents' 46th anniversary (and, they're still in love).

I'm trying to get a couple of cards done...Joe & Chris are watching a movie. we went to the pool but the water was way too cold. Joe and Chris got in for about 5 minutes and had enough.

I'm going to try to make it to your challenge tonight, Lee.
I've got a graduation card to make as well, Lee. Maybe I can fit it into one of the challenges...
I remember when I used to go in the pool no matter what the temp, NOT ANY MORE! It must be warm now -- not too warm, but not chilly at all. Refreshing is all I can handle.

I was stamping in my craft room making VSN cards when I looked out the window and saw some big birds eating insects in my yard. I managed to get a pic of one of them, but I had to take it through the screen so it's kinda grainy.

Those are big JLo birds, Pat!

Lee, I've done your challenge, but probably won't make it tonight for upload!
Off to the nice warm pool now.

hi everyone! Busy weekend here so I didn't get any chance to play VSN...I haven't even made my card for CAS challenge tomorrow!

Gia made her first holy communion yesterday...it was a beautiful day and she was so excited! Then today we had our May crowning and Gia was chosen to crown the statue of Mary! She was so happy she nearly cried! Such a drama queen...

Love the peace sign cake!

The big birds in my yard are white ibis. I looked it up because they were back today.

The Imaginary Trip starts tomorrow. Amsterdam here we come!

I bet you're glad school is almost over Pat - hang in there, not much longer to go - you're in the home stretch.

Have we heard from Paula yet? She hasn't been here in a while. Neither has Robyn or Stacey.

It's a beautiful day in Wilmington - Joe & Chris ran a few errands and we're planning to go to the pool for a little while when they get back. I think the water is still a little nippy though. At least for me it is...kids have been in there since May 1st (brrrrrrr).

Hope you all have a "booty-ful" weekend. (more pirate lingo) heehee
Did you mean me - (Paula M) or the OTHER Paula? I haven't been around too much lately either. It's been crazy busy around my house these days.

Yeah, you. Just making sure you're accounted for. Now, where is Stacey and Robyn?

I managed to make 5 VSN cards - I would have liked to have made more but just didn't have enough time. Christopher was here this weekend so we were on the go. Went to the beach yesterday. The ocean water was actually warmer than the dang pool at the condo! I went in but only up to my waist. Even got a little sunburn.

Gia looks like a little princess. Nice family photo too D. Thanks for sharing.

Joe & I just got back from having Indian food and now we're going to chill out for a while. Toodles noodles.

I am fine -the storms missed us - but they came a little too close for my comfort level - being new to the South and Tornadoes and all. My garden is growing nicely and I have tomatoes coming on and little crook neck squash too. Mmmmm, can't wait for the harvest. Now, for cards, I need to check my list and see if I have forgotten to send one out - I know I haven't for May yet - haven't had much time to craft, but hope to in the next few days. We will see. It is a busy week with my youngest graduating from middle school and my oldest daughter graduating from high school and flying the nest!

Jean, thank you so much for the beautiful card! It definitely brightened my day.
My apologies to Lee and Paula L. - I really meant to try both of your VSN challenges but just ran out of time this weekend. I think I only managed 6 all together this round.
D - love the photos! Gia is adorable. And that cake is fantastic!
Not much else going on for me. I have a super busy week at work this week, and somehow got roped into working the holiday on Monday - boo.
Also, does anyone have a corner chomper? I have worn out three corner rounders from three different manufacturers and I need one that will last more than a few punches. I'm thinking about trying a chomper and would love some feedback if any of you have one.

D....sweet pics and awesome cake!

Mish....no worries! Stampin' is for fun...not pressure! And I'd love input too.....2 different manufacturers' corner rounders have not lasted well for me at all!

Well....we're on our way to celebrate our anniversary in the a.m.! We're stopping at the walk in clinic in Pueblo first.....I think it's gonna take meds to knock this out. Oh well....Murphy's Law don'tchaknow! I'll pop in when I can!

Well, I had you for April and will be mailing your card along with my May card. I didn't want to send something overly cute if y'all had gotten hit and, procrastinate, procrastinate - I'm just uber lame.

I {heart} my corner chomper! (It's the We R Memory Keepers heavy duty corner rounder, Alison.) I haven't used it on chipboard, but I have punched two layers of cardstock at once and it's like buttah.

Love the pictures, D!

Michelle, no worries. I never get all the challenges done either and I had tons of prep time.

On the homefront, two weeks until we find out if it's a boy or a girl! Can't freakin' wait!!! I want to pick a name already! And stop saying "the baby".

Cute Gia and cute tradition.

I didn't know what a corner chomper was either but I saw one in AC Moore this afternoon. They've got quite a few things on sale...clear stamps 50% off, punches 40% off, 12x12 paper pads $10 (50%), and more.

I have a VSN gripe and it's NOT directed towards anyone here...I have to say the comments are a little slack this go around. The challenge hostesses (except one) haven't even commented on the cards I loaded for their challenges - the few I had a chance to do. I remember in the day we were highly encouraged to comment on at least all the entries posted for our challenge and as many others as we could. Guess everyone's too busy.

Anyway, on a separate note, I'm happy to report that the pool has finally warmed up (yes, in 2 days) and Christopher was able to go swimming yesterday. Actually, we all went...it was 96* out. 2 days of 90*+ weather warmed that water right up!

My May card is going out tomorrow - I've had it made but didn't realize it was the end of the month already! I might as well send June's out early - it's made too.

happy late birthday to Gia!
Thanks for the input on the corner chomper. As soon as I nab a 50 percent off coupon, I'll give one a try!
Wow, Jacq - that sounds like some serious hot weather!
It's been warmer here the last few days, but it's back to unseasonably cool temps this weekend.

Jacq, as much as I really enjoyed this go round of VSN and thought the organization and challenges were stellar, I, too, felt that the commenting was very slack as well during the main one. When they "applied", they were told they were expected to comment on all of the cards in their challenge at least.

I would agree. I thought commenting was down as well... Though I can't say too much... I didn't get through all the galleries -- only made it through 7 I think. But I did notice that it seemed lower than some in the past.

Wow, Alison, to do 7 galleries is pretty darn wonderful, I'd say. We as participants could have done more commenting, too, I guess. I did a few galleries but should have done more.

Smelly crap balls Batman! It's only 2 o'clock...man, I thought I only had about 45 minutes left here [at work] but it's closer to 2 1/2. I went out at 10 am to pick up some new contact lenses, go to the post office (be on the lookout Karolyn and Lee Murphy), and CVS. Grabbed lunch on the way back. Guess it's not as late as I thought. Luckily it's pretty quiet here today so I can work at my leisure and without pressure. I did find some really yummy recipes and now I'm going to go look at some goodies I might like to get.

Luckily it's pretty quiet here today so I can work at my leisure and without pressure. I did find some really yummy recipes and now I'm going to go look at some goodies I might like to get.
Don't burst a blood vessel or pull a brain cell working so hard, Jacq!

TGIF! And happy holiday weekend everyone!
I didn't do as much commenting this round of VSN, either,so I'm part of the problem, I guess. I'll do better next round, I promise!

I am excited for the weekend, but I have to work Monday, so it's not a long weekend for me. I am going to a friend's tomorrow to stamp for awhile, so that should be fun. I'm also getting my hair done tomorrow - it is long overdue!

LET THE HOLIDAY BEGIN! Sorry, I always shout that when I have a holiday. Anyway, I somehow lost my notifications to this thread again. I might have to say something everyday just to keep it.

Love the birthday pic of Gia. She's looking so grown up!

I really enjoyed this VSN too. I thought the challenges were very creative. I can't complain about the commenting because I barely commented at all. I was madly trying to catch up after missing almost all the challenges on Friday because of the school talent show. I did notice that not all of the hostesses commented though.

I hope everyone has plans to relax on this long weekend. Sorry you have to work, Michelle.

I had an interesting week at school. It was the first week of the Imaginary Trip to Europe and a squirrel died in a closet in my classroom. My class and I had to relocate to another classroom. As one of my kids said, "The stench is awful in there." Apparently our custodial staff is limited in what they can clean with, so after they had mopped the closet out three times with whatever they could use (smelled like PineSol) I took matters into my own hands and went out and bought some Clorox Clean-Up after school on Wednesday and cleaned the closet myself. It was bearable on Thursday morning but I still cleaned it again and then again on Thursday afternoon after school and today it was fine. That's one thing about teaching, it's never boring.

Well, after that "eventful" week Pat you deserve a long weekend! I'm sorry to hear about the squirrel's demise though.

We had friends over last night for dinner and Wii bowling. We were up late having fun, drinking, bowling, etc. We're doing it again tonight!

Joe's plan was to cook on the grill everyday this weekend. Yesterday, we had steaks, delicious pasta salad, and millionaire shortbread; tonight, we're having marinated pork shish kabobs, Asian slaw, zucchini & yellow squash and s'mores; tomorrow, hamburgers, potato salad and corn-on-the-cob and probably more s'mores. Do you know I've never had a s'more? I think I'll like them. Oh, and I found these giant marshmallows...they're about 3 times as big as regular large marshmallows. Mmmmmmm. Melted marshmallowy goodness.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and Memorial Day. Sorry you have to work Michelle.

Did I mention that the teacher next to me and I chased the squirrel all over my room the week before trying to get it to go outside? I'm sorry he died, but he had numerous opportunities to get out and be free.

I can just picture you [Pat] chasing the squirrel around the classroom...giggle

Alison, I'm sorry to say the s'mores were just ok...highly overrated in my opinion. Maybe it was because I used the giant marshmallows which, by the way, took forever to toast...or that we used Hershey's bars (which I don't really like)...overall, they were alright but I could go on without ever having another s'more in my life.

Hope y'all had a great weekend. I did - just wish we had 3-day weekends more often - like, once a month.
