Gail, that's awesome that you have 100 to send!!! Awesome that you made multiples! Hey, I just noticed that you live in Syracuse, IN. My Sis lives in Anderson. Well....I am moving quite slowly today.

DD wants to go shopping and well, needs to go shopping since our weather is now turning. So I guess I will scoot. I will be thinking on today's challenge!

Have a great day everyone!

Jenny you'll have those cards made before the week is out.

I finished off my shaped cowgirl boot card. I love it and want to make more and more since I'm at least a decade away from buying a real pair. As the day wore on I was surprised that I was able to complete the latest challenge in between all the jobs that needed doing today. So all in all, a very productive day.

Good morning ladies! Once today's challenge is posted I'll be four days behind. Somehow life's just gotten in the way lately (actually work but that's part of life)! When I complete my shift later this afternoon I'll be off work until 5:30 on Thursday so hopefully I'll get caught up once again with the challenges!

Jeenny2010 and Connie hope you are feeling better today.

Can't wait to see the boot cards that have been chatted about!

Squeal! Lynn, off until Thur. if life doesn't throw you extra events maybe you will be able to catch up!

I am caught up and thinking about making another scene, paper that is! Channeling Kittie and creating a white and pink scene. We will see if I have enough time.

Leaving in 8 min. so I better eat a bite. Will check back in late this afternoon and see what today's challenge is!

I haven't been on this thread in a week and it feels like a month! I've missed LOTS of chatter. I'm always so amazed at people who can make cards quickly - it takes me hours to make even simple cards, it seems. Maybe if I would quit changing my mind it would go more quickly, lol.
Hope everyone feels better today! I'm off to see today's challenge!

Pam, one of the mistakes I made that caused this with was choosing the check box at the bottom to place my photo in an album. And be warned - when you correct it all the additional info will be removed! I had to move about 10 of mine and didn't know that until someone pm'ed me about a stamp I used. I was going to go back in and edit them, but decided to spend my time making cards instead!

I'm guessing from a post only the hostess side that Lydia is just fixing a formatting issue! Because I'm sure I saw it there about ten minutes ago, and I know the samples have been made live .

Gave me a little free time for commenting!

I bought one of those photo boxes that Michaels is always putting on sale. I am mailing all my cards in one of those. I thought they might be able to use the box for display. I found one with 1 1/4" pink polka dots!

Yup I am with you! Looks like we are all in good company.

I am stuck right now, which is why I am sitting here chatting instead of creating!

I love KJ's challenge, I'm just struggling putting something together I like! I started with the backside of a leaf and then kissed with a cracked bg stamp and now I am stuck. I don't think I like it so I can't make anything with it.

I could try another stamp but hmmm.. I dunno. Maybe I just need to go watch some Pride and Predjudice!!!!

i thought this would be a simple challenge and i did the same thing, i started out one way, didn't like it, tried to make it work, nope, it just doesn't look right, throw it away cuz i really decide i don't like those colors together at all. It took me a couple of hours to create this and that is not like me at all. I usually move on to something else by that time but I want to make all the challenges.

It was a productive day. After ignoring my family for hours I finished 5 challenges and did 2 cards for 2 of them. I still have to photograph 2 of them but I have to wait for it to stop snowing so I can go outside to do it. So not ready for winter yet.

It's only raining here but it snowed Thursday night. I'm not ready for snow season yet. Doesn't it feel like you ignore your family when you're making your cards? I keep asking my family & they don't care.

It doesn't seem to bother my family either and the kids get dad time, but I do feel like I am ignoring everyone. Maybe it's just my mom need to be in control, lol.

Had a nice day despite a mid day migraine. After church my DS who lives the next town over came to help celebrate 13yo DS's birthday. I'll try to put the recipe in the box later, but Pumpkin Cheesecake Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Topping. YUM! Then I made a huge batch of Arugula Potato Salad to take to a church bonfire....I'm sitting here smelling like wood smoke. The weather was just right-clear, crisp, beautiful. All in all a really nice day. Will have to stamp extra tomorrow as I just don't have any energy left for stamping. Migraines, even when stopped in their tracks with meds, still zap me.
PS-as per my signature line-my family realizes that the creative outlet is important to my sanity and unless I let it get completely out of balance, they support my need to hit the craft room and stamp away!

It is definitely a need, and I love that they can see that.

Sounds like a perfect night indeed for a bonfire, Gail. And the cupcakes sound scrumptious.
I'm guessing that Canadian relatives used to send my mother canned pumpkin because even yet with globalisation it's something I don't see here. I know one store that might just have it this time of year, though - I should check.
Love woodsmoke smell - not so sure about smelling of it myself, though, LOL.
DH was at an officers meeting for the Christian Motorcyclists Association the other night and he came home reeking of smoke. That must have been one smoky fire!!!

Don't get canned pumpkin in these parts either. I just had to go out to the TV room and mention this strange idea to my partner, who grew up growing pumpkins, winning best pumpkin at the shows and got to name a variety after his farm. Judging from his response, which I won't repeat here, I've been left in no doubt that he thinks it is strange too.

If I ever saw a can in the shop I'd have to buy it though. But my curiosity would probably only extend to opening it, looking at it and maybe dipping my finger in for a tentative taste. I keep imagining it would have added sugar and I'd that I'd be able to taste it.

Never the less, a lot of foreigners find some of our fare odd and strange. My son told me a story when he did a recent military exercise with the US Navy. When a visitor tried our ration pack there were some items of food he thought he may have been fire starter, lol. Yes, it was the dreadful Vegemite. I can image the look on the poor fellows faces as he tried to process that on his taste buds.

I can't imagine never having had canned pumpkin! First of all, my cats will climb me like a tree when I open it - cats and dogs go nuts for it. But I couldn't live without it.

It thankfully does not typically have added sugar, but you can get cans with sugar and spice in it if you're just bone lazy and can't add cinnamon for your pies

I wish I had tried Vegemite when I was in Australia!

Canned pumpkin by itself tastes pretty gross. It is simply cooked, pureed pumpkin. We also have canned pumpkin pie filling which already has the sugar and spices added to it so when you go to use it for pie you just add the milk and eggs....that's a lot more edible on its own! I've also cooked, pureed and frozen my own pumpkin, but it is more watery than what comes in the cans and takes a little adjusting with recipes. My mom grew up in a small town in IL that had a Libbys pumpkin processing plant so they have an annual pumpkin festival and my relatives from there have lots of pumpkin recipes!
It is interesting how regional tastes develop....some things are more adoptable to other cultures than others. Whenever I tell people about the full Irish breakfast that I ate at the B&B we stayed in, they balk at the blood pudding. I'm at least willing to try new things, but I don't end up liking them all. I actually found the pudding to be pretty tasty and I'm not a sausage eater in general.
