So then you add the non-working color in as an accent layer or something.

Well, what happened was, the color I colored the thimble was nearly identical to the color BG it was going to lay on...so it blended in and was too blah....

I'll have to remember your tip for a future use!

okay, here is the card:

thread that binds dmb by dawnmercedes - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I had colored that thimble in and it turned out so yellow that it matched the yellow BG it was sitting on. But nothing was glued on and it wasn't too hard to emboss another one.

Your card is great. You know we are always our own worst critic.

haha..that's b/c I changed the thimble! It woudl have been to "blah" to keep it yellow! Thanks for the compliment. We have so many legos...why do people argue over them???

I'm making cinnamon rolls. So glad that I didn't say "lose weight" or "eat right" for a resolution! haha. Plus, our neighbor plowed so much..the street, sometimes our walk and driveway...I owe him!

Well, mine weren't exactly homemade - just from one of those refrig. tubes, but they were still good.

I can't even imagine what experiencing CHA must be like.

Oh yumm...I should have picked some up when I went grocery shopping!!

CHA is overwhelming. Too much to see. Though, I kept hearing that those who are used to these things, thought it seemed smaller. Also, not as many people there. I guess a lot of the companies did pre release sneaks/orders that there wasn't the same incentive to go in person to get their orders in

I would guess it would be a lot like being in NYC -- just plain sensory overload.

possibly...since I've never been to NYC, I don't know! LOL

Though, in a way the SuperCraft show that was before CHA last year was more over whelming. Since it was open to the public, it was just a MAD house.
There was no supershow with this CHA....so much more business like....But still soooo much to try and see


I have spent my eveing quizzing kids over science, California history and helping with algebra. Dawn....may I recommend that you bookmark Algebra.com for future reference. Thank goodness for the internet!! Can bail mom out when she can't remember how to do algebra!!

P.s.....usually the math is DH's area...but he is at a meeting. Not that I got poor grades in math.....I just had to work very hard at it. It is not my strong point!!

Now, the science is usually my area....

school has been canceled for tomorrow.l..

DS#3 came home..announcing that the principal said that there would be a 99% chance of no school tomorrow. I go and pick up the kids from Math Olympiad at 4:30, swing by the grocery store to pick up one more gallon of milk. Even though, I went shopping yesterday...theya rleady drank one gallon of milk! haha

So, while we were in teh check out lane, a cashier received a text from the district announcing that school was closed. And she says it very loudly...the kids in tihe lines were happy.

I get home, ask #3, who was with dad...if the school had called. He said yes. I asked, What did they say? He says "School is canceled for the rest of the week." haha

I said, there is no way that they are going to calls chool for that long.

Although, I guess DD's teacher must think so b/c she has PILED on the HW tonight!

Aren't you having something like 80?

It's been snowing all day. Mark cleared the drive this morning with the snowblower before going to work. I went out at 1:00 and shoveled again. The drive stayed pretty clear the rest of the day, so when he came home, he had no problem getting in. But later the wind picked up, so now we have blizzard conditions, with a lot of blowing snow and white outs. I'm not sure how much more we are expected to get, because every forecast seems to be a bit different, but I don't think an additional foot is out of the question.

He told people at work they should come in or not as they felt comfortable tomorrow.

Well, shiver me timbers! Right now I don't think we can get out the front door because of the foot deep drift on the front step. Hopefully the garage door won't have a problem. But, I don't plan on going anywhere today, so it's not a problem for me. DH is still home. He may go into the office around noon. Depends on whether the plow comes through. I don't think they've plowed our subdivision yet. Several neighbors have been out with snowblowers. It's hard to tell if it's still snowing or if it's just blowing snow.

I really need to get off my pity horse and take the dog for a walk....I'm whining because it is 34 degrees right now, but the wind is blowing, so it feels colder. BUT! The sun is shining....the ice in the gutter will hopefully melt soon. And as far as I know, no snow in our future.

Mark is out with the snowblower... well I think he has the drive more or less done. I hear him shoveling, so he's probably just cleaning up close to the garage door and maybe the sidewalk. Glad I didn't have to go out. I may later just to skim off what the snowblower doesn't get. We'll see.

I've been trying to figure out if I should preorder some stuff - probably spellbinders - or just get some things I already had on my list. I have a bit of $$ from my classes that I've been holding onto. I got my LAST SU order on the 31st, so I'm officially done! I really love a lot of the new spellbinders, but also Tim has some awesome dies coming out -- decisions, decisions...

Dawn, I've been a demo for over 10 years. I was going to quit when the new demo agreement came out in 2009, but then a customer wanted to have a workshop, which made me current for the quarter and then another cust. wanted a sab workshop, current for another quarter, and then just a few customer orders kept me in. I went pending on Jan. 1 and didn't make minimums, so I'm done. And I'm really OK with that. Now I can spend anywhere I want without guilt.

It's rather nice to be in that position, huh? I have never regretted (one "t" or two?!) leaving SU.....I think my creativity was able to be let out of the box more once I did

When I had to drop out b/c of the change in the IDA, I was a bit disappointed. I loved the discount. I loved the sneak peeks. but I never had customers to make $$ and I never had workshops. But, I am blessed with a few DTs to get sneak peeks and free stamps. So it has really worked out well for me. I'd like those WWC and maybe the pear ink. But the price increase is killer...gulp!

The pear ink isn't all that different from certainly celery.

I know another demo who doesn't live too far away, so if I really need something, I can still order through her. I'll just have to pay full price. I still love SU cardstock and the fact that the ink matches, but as far as stamps, there is just so much else available and SU stuff really hasn't appealed to me in awhile.

I noticed that about pear. Maybe I just need a pack of paper. But the price is killer!

My former upline just quit (or I should say, decided not to fight to get out of pending as she has lost the urge to stamp (gasp!) for the past year. I just bought a boatload of cs from her...she gave it to me at a great price. Basically, I bought neutrals (black, browns, grey) blues and "basketball colors" haha

haha...you and your basketballs! haha

I keep saying that I should find another hobby..but it took me over 30 years to find this one. I love it! I can't stop. Does that mean it's an obsession now? haha.

I stocked up on colors right before I let my demoship go. But then, as you know, the company changed thecolors! haha. So I do have a lot of retired colors. Such is life.
