Wednesday has its moments...

This is Kipper, pouting at the door because we all went shopping yesterday and left him at home. Isn't he so cute? Absolutely love his big brown eyes. They are so soulful and chocolate brown. Gotta admit, his entire heart is in those two big eyes of his. His entire expression screams with the question: 'are you taking me along with you?' and no, we didn't. He hates riding in vehicles! Maybe its because he's not used it, but he hates it. He hates getting into vehicles and he hates it when the vehicle is moving, but he still cries like a baby when we leave without him. Its not that he misses us or anything (which I'm sure he does) but he also cries like that when we have company and they leave, etc. He's different.

So yeah, our shopping trip was very successful. We found what we were looking for, and we picked up two new punches. An MS punch (mom's pick) of which I forgot the name (oops) and a bamboozled fiskar oval punch. I'm so totally officially out of cash. I have no idea where I dug up the money for this baby, but I have to say this much - I'm not going shopping for a long long time. Unless of course, someone sponsors my shopping trip. Heyyy now there's an idea. I think I need to go do some talking with a certain someone. Maybe he will. haha or not! My hunni will think I'm nuts, asking him to support my 'addiction' of buying scrapbook items.
Anyways, after shopping, we went to see some old friends. I haven't had such a fun visit with friends in a long time. Haven't been to that place since right before I turned 16 (I'm 20 now) so its been quite a few years. I really enjoyed it.
Today I've been scrapping. Haven't done any challenges this week yet, and since I have a few new goodies to play with...I'll go and enjoy it! It's new motivation!!!!

Without further ado, here's a card I made using the sketch from Mojo Monday (behind time or what?)It's a bit weird (and surprisingly enough, no glitter!) but it'll do. *smile. I don't have many 'friendship' cards and rarely ever make any, even though I have quite a few embellies and stuff that is applicable for 'friends'. So I used the sketch to create one. Like I said, its a bit wacky, but I like it. It's very 'me'.

Next card...of all the things, is a grad card. It really didn't start out as being a grad just 'happened'. Originally I was going to make it an Easter card, but my 'plan' didn't get very far. Goofed big time and had to hide it. The lid fell off my mini stamp pad and yep, you guessed it -- part of my card got inked! So I added on the 'in yourself' part to cover it. This card was made using the sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches. Very beautiful sketch and very versatile - easy to work with. Thanks for the wonderful sketch!

This card is also a grad card - since I made a feminine one, might as well make a masculine one for the challenge on 'crazy4challenges'. I also used sketch 41 from Sweet Sketch Wednesday while creating this card. Love the way the colors turned out on this baby. I didn't plan on most of it - it just happened to happen. *smile. Its an overall unique card. Starting to love sketches. I never used to follow them until I joined blogger and challenges on blogger, but I gotta admit, its fun! And it helps with the creativity. Less thinking!

Last but not least, is the final card I'm uploading for today. This time its for challenge 59 (spots & dots) on Crafty Creations. Yeah I know...I could combined some challenges and gotten this card somewhere else without having to upload the extra card, but where's the fun in that? Besides, I wanted to add a Father's Day card to my now slowly but surely growing card box.

Have fun, happy crafting, and Enjoy!
