College World Series and stuff

If you follow College Baseball or live in Omaha you know about the men's College World Series. It's the championship games now. Oregon State University Beavers vs. the North Carolina Tarheels. (what's a Tarheel?) Rick and I went to game 1 of the final series on Saturday. It was pretty fun. OSU 11-4. The Beavers ended up winning the next game and the championship.
I was especially happy to go because my back's been OUT for almost 4 weeks. In that time it's been almost "in" for about 4 days altogether, here and there, but mostly out. Saturday I woke up pain free! WOOHOO! It's been a bit bothersome this week, but SOOO much better than before.
I was supposed to go to a CWS game Monday but no go with my back being out as it was. Rick won the tickets for yesterday's game on the radio. We were pretty lucky to be able to go.

Stampin' Up!'s New Fall/ Winter Catalog 2007

Today I received my copy of the Stampin' Success magazine, it's a periodical magazine that SU! sends out to each of their demonstrators each month with, tip of the ice berg: spectacular card and craft designs, tips, techniques and ideas. This month, of course, it's all about the new catalog. MY SKIN IS CRAWLING!!!


I promise not to give away too much in details but you have just got to be a LITTLE excited!? RIGHT?
I love the sneak peek into some of the new stamp sets, accessories, card stock and designer paper.
Does anyone else out there get a little excited with all things boho (bohemian). I do. I wish I used that kind of stuff more often. It's new, uncharted territory for me, so I look forward to getting my feet wet with it!
I know I'm not the only one DROOLING over and LOVING scallop punches. There are other new punches and I'm psyched with what I've seen so far.
And the new chipboard products.... oh yah baby!
Some of you may have already seen the rhinestone accents on card examples. LOVE EM! But the new ribbons.... lots and lots of NEW ribbons!!
I'm absolutely giddy!!
take a deep breath with me.
Want more yet?

Rocks' 3rd birthday

Rocks' 3rd birthday was on Tuesday. He did receive a couple birthday gifts, which he thoroughly enjoyed. These are the pictures of them moments before their destruction.

I finally stamped something!

I made this for the SplitcoastStampers color challenge CC116.
Cool Caribbean, Chocolate Chip, and Garden Green ink & cardstock. I kept it simple because everytime I tried to add something it looked funny. So this is a VERY simple card!
