Hi guys. Can you believe that it is Monday once again? I can not believe how fast this month has gone by. WOW, just a little over two months and we'll be looking right at Christmas. Ok ok, I have freaked myself out enough for one day. I won't continue down that road. heehee...
I have some news today that I need to share. Due to some issues at work this week I will be working from 8am to 6pm every day this week. Needless to say, I am sure that I will not have much spare time for much more than sleeping. So, due to this I have made all of my cards this past weekend and I am going to be scheduling them all. Please forgive me for pretty much only posting all of my supplies and not much more. I hate not having a voice for each of my posts, but I really do not see me be able to post each morning. I hope that you all have a super great week and I will so try to get to your blogs as always. Please keep me in your thoughts so that I will have the stamina to work that many hours in a row. I am not as young as I used to be and I always try to be a full time Mom when I am not at work, so I am sure that I am going to be exhausted. Thanks in advance for all of your friendships. I really do appreciate each and everyone of you.
Now, on to the fun stuff...
This is the first card that I have used my new Die-namics die. It is called rolled rose, and I love it! As you can see it is a black rose, so I took my main picture from the side in the hopes that you can see it better. I just have to thank the wonderfully talented Cindy for sharing her rose and where she bought it from so that I main get my own. Did I mention that I love it?! :O)
Ok guys, have a great week. I hope to talk at you soon.
Hugs, Lisa G

First of all I love this card!! Can you believe I still ahve not bought this set?? I absolutley love it I don't know why I havne't bought it yet.. wait a minute yes I do!!! I have been buying copic refills and dies here lately and not stamps unless they are digital.
I love the color combo!! I just received the Sizzix 3D rose die on Saturday. I think it't about the same design as MFT's but just in the big chunky sizzix die size. I haven't had time to try it out yet as this past weekend was crazy!! And with all that was going on I decided to Fall clean my house and redo everything.. I am still not done yet. I am really trying to reorganize my craft stuff so I can be more productive.
Gotta run!!
HEY I almost forgot check it out you won over at Simply Betty Stamps from the blog hop.
