Tough choice...Bazzill or Basic Grey...Bazzill it is.
2. If you had to choose between using only stamps or rubons, which would you choose?
I would choose stamps.
3. If you knew how to do both awesome cards and layouts but could only do one for a whole year...which would you do?
Cards. More instant gratification.
4. Would you rather own a scrapbooking store or have your own scrapping room at home...(can't have both he he he).
Scrapping room. ..I have a scraproom that is a constant work in progress to find better organization and storage solutions AND use up stash to make room for new incredible stash that I can't live without :)
5. What is your CURRENT cardmaking or scrapping style?
Would have to say my style is simple and (hopefully) elegant. Hey, that's a good name for a blog...
5 people I am tagging: Tracy, Lauren, Corie, Amy, and Ila.

I still have 5 or six of these Making Memories latch cards and jellies. I found some scraps of Magenta paper and adhered to the edge and latch to cover up sun damage on the card. I distressed with walnut stain on the edges. It still looked blah, so I found a stamp in my stash and stamped a background with my Versamark pad. Better.

Two more cards using Bazzill chips. (In case you are wondering, 20 different cs stickers come on a sheet. I gave two away, and I have 6 left still!)
I want to thank my good friend, Tracy (http://smallsmackerels.blogspot.com/). She bestowed the "Creative Blogger Award" upon me: For those who incorporate art, music, creative writing, photos, and other beautiful visual effects into their website. For those who put a unique spin on things and come up with new ideas. This award is for the artsy, the funky, the inventor, and even the rebel. This award is for those creative individuals who stand out from the crowd.
I wish to nominate Amy (http://pickledpaperdesigns.blogspot.com/) for this award. Amy is a new blogger, but I have known her for over a year. I love her cards and creations.
I also want to thank Jean (http://prettykittydogmoonjewelry.blogspot.com/), who I have not known nearly as long as sweet Tracy, but I have deep respect and affection for. Jean awarded me with the "The Inspirational Blogger Award": For those bloggers who inspire others through their words and actions. With a positive attitude, and an uplifting spirit these bloggers make the blogosphere a better place, and encourage others to do the same. This award is for bloggers who rise up to set an example but continue to reach out and support others."
I would like to nominate Lauren (http://llaurenb.blogspot.com/) for this award. If she is not on your favorites, add her NOW! I dare you not to smile and giggle at her posts. Lauren has a fantastic sense of humor and wonderful whimsical cards.
I love you, Tracy & Jean! I feel so honored that these two creative and art geniuses think so much of me, the math geek :) Everytime I get a blogger award my husband says,"And I've been nominated to the National Geographic Society." Should I give him a playful smack?

This morning my dh asked me if I wanted to go on a bonus coffee date (we usually have our coffee dates once each week.) Of course I said, "YES, as long is it is not followed by any more accidents!" We went on our date, and all the halloween cards and birthday cards from Monday's post have sold. I came home, made more Halloween and birthday cards, and took them back to Greenberry's . I forgot to take pictures to post here on my blog! Serious brain fog going on here!

I was inspired by Sarah's RAK (previous blog entry) for these Halloween cards. I used my scraps from the cards posted earlier :) The birthday cards are American Crafts, I used a QK die & white cs, CM circle punches, and an SU! birthday stamp. Simple! The last two cards were originally designed by my friend Vera. They are SU! dps & stamps, but the ribbon was on sale at Michael's last week for $1.87 (normally $3.99!) Which do you like best?
