High Hopes project of the month

Happy Saturday everyone!! And happy first-weekend-of-May!!! I'm so glad it's finally May.....just a few weeks of school left....then lazy days are upon us!! Well, the lazy days in between swimming lessons, basketball camp, & golf camp! LOL!!

I knew that posting every day thing wouldn't last, lol. Can you believe I had someone unsubscribe from my blog on Wednesday, because of TOO MANY updates? I had to laugh at that....I rarely ever post more than 2 or 3 times a week, I just happened to have more free time than usual. I didn't realize that was a BAD thing in blogland!!

Today I'm showing you the card I made for High Hopes' MAY Project of the Month:

I somehow managed to fit ALL the POTM stamps onto the card!! The stamps included are:

S-113 Party Donkey
E-152 Party Animal
E-151 Party Hat Two
G-241 Dagwood Sandwich
H-187 Three Candle Cake
G-240 Single Present

Whew!! That's some list!! If you buy the whole shebang during the month of get them at a discount. It may be a few days until these are listed on the website as the POTM special, so if you'd like to order them now, you can email Tina or Bethany at

Oh, & go check out the High Hopes blog post HERE......Jeanne did a FANTASTICALLY cute card with all the stamps as well!!

For my card I colored everything with Prismas & gamsol. I cut out the sandwich, cake, present & hat & popped them in their proper places. I punched the sentiment out with my Word Window punch.....distressed my edges.....added some Dew Drops.....& called it done. Not too much more I could do with this card, there's so much on it already!!

The past few days have been a bit crazy around here so I haven't been able to post. And next week my husband is off. He will be working every other week until things pick up at his work. Which really stinks, unemployment is about 1/3 of what he makes, but at least the company is trying, & he does still have a job. Things will be tight around here for a while, but we'll manage. Anyway, my point is, he will be here ALL NEXT WEEK.....which means it will be difficult to get to my craft area to get anything done. I will be gone all day Wednesday....Matthew & I are going on a field trip to Madison!! We won't get home until late, but I'm so excited....I think we'll all have a lot of fun visiting our State Capital!! And I'm working on Monday & my posting will be sporadic next week.

And....tonight is my sleep study. I'm looking forward to it....but I'm also nervous. I'm very afraid they'll tell me I sleep just fine. I WANT to have apnea because there's a fix for it. If I don't have apnea, I will have to have more tests done. Imagine your worst night of sleep EVER....& how you felt the entire next day because of it. That is my life. That is how I feel ALL the time. And it seems to be getting worse. So.....cross your fingers for me that everything goes well, & that they figure it out!!!

Oh.....& some of you wanted to know if I was listing the Penny Black dog card from a couple of days ago on Ebay. I just listed it this morning......the link is on my sidebar. Thanks for your interest!!!!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!! I wasn't able to get a card done for the High Hopes challenge tomorrow, but please check the blog anyway for all the other Divas' terrific creations!!!! It's usually posted first thing in the morning!!

Very cute card Michelle!

Question, how do you check on the status of an order that was placed more than a month ago but was never received? Do you think it could be stuck in customs or something? Any info would be greatly appreciated!!

Absolutely enjoy Madison, originally from Middleton...but now it's God Bless Texas. I assume you already have your agenda for the trip. But, if you extra time...there are so many other things to do. Free zoo, military museum right by the Capitol, and if you want more info....just e-mail me. I wish I could get back home to see my kiddo & Mom.

Have fun,

I love how you managed to get all of the stamps in the image! He truely is a Party Animal! Good luck with the study. I couldn't image your sleep issues. I NEED my sleep and if the kids wake me up....the next day is NOT pretty!! Unfortunely, that was my week last week...4 nights in a row one of the kids came in...they took turns...Ug! Anyway, hope it went well for you.
