May Challenge -Blue Collar Comedy

Here is my Blue Collar Comity Challenge. I chose to use Larry The Cable Guy as my inspiration. You know I never thought I would ever say that.

I couldn't decide if I wanted to use Larry the Cable Guys "That's funny" or "Git-R-Done" then I took this picture and I knew I could use both. There is no names on the picture to protect the innocent (and the guilty too).

Please don't hate me, I just couldn't help myself.

I would like your input.

I would like your input on MP3 players. Looks like I'm getting one for my B day coming up and I get to pick it out. I want to download tunes from the internet, from my pc and from music I already have on CD's. I haven't had one before so I am wondering what mp3 players you all have and what do you love and what do you hate about it. I would appreciate you help. Thanks.

May Week 3 -Challenges

Calendar - This is my attempt at the calendar challenge. I believe the back ground paper and flower are from Fancy Pants, all other paper is unknown from my stash. Title from American Crafts Thickers, Rivets are from Stampin' Up, and denim circle from a pair of my old tattered and now holey jeans. I hope that the right way to spell holey, meaning with holes I'm not trying to be irreverent.

Flowers - This was a quick digi page I did in a hurry on Thursday.

Update - Sorry again these are late. I had a reaction to some of the local anesthesia used during the test. I got an immediate migraine, my sinuses filled with fluid so I also had a sinus headache. My had so much pressure in my head that my eyes were constantly watering, my nose was like a hose, and all my teeth ached. I could feel each and every tooth throbbing. All this on top of that migraine. Basically I was miserable. To top it off I went to the test alone, so I had to drive my self home. I was never so glad to get home. I'm feeling a little better. The migraine is gone, my teeth stopped throbbing and my sinuses are starting to drain. Now I just feel like I have head cold and I look like Rudolph. The good news is that there is no blockage in my throat and my voice box is fine. Earlier test showed I have a hernia, acid reflux and a dysfunctional esophagus. So with a little acid controller, some weight loss and a few lifestyle changes it can get things under control.

Sorry I didn't get my challenges posted by the deadline. I did the Flower challenge and the calender challenge. They are done but things are not going well for me right now. Had a test preformed today that didn't go as planned. Had the test done in the Dr s office this afternoon and I'm having a reaction to the meds used in the test. I'll be fine but for now I'm not feeling well. More details later and I post as soon as I can.

April Challenge Grand Prize Winner.....

I want to thank you all for participating in the April challenges. You are all such an inspiration!

The G.P. is a "Braggables Bag" with some scrapping goodies inside. I bought this bag in Feb. (and bought another style for myself, of course). On of the so called goodies in the bag is a bunch of patterned paper. I must admit these papers are some of my white elephants. I new you all were so good with challenges that I decided who ever won them would know just what to do with them. They now belong to the winner, so she can do with them as she pleases (use them, trash them, make challenges with them or even make confetti out of them). There is a pack of Thickers in the bas and all of the other item are from local craft stores clearance isles.

If you would like to see the entire line of "Braggable" bags visit their web site at . They give 10% of their net profit to Pediatric Cardiology Research. They have great products and generous hearts too

And the winner is.........

Congrats G.P. winner. I'll be in touch to decide how to deliver your prize. Week 4 and the G.P. winners were drawn by Martie a friend from work. Thanks Martie for your help and once again thanks to all who participated.

Week 4 winner is.....

Sorry I should have posted this yesterday but the day got away from me. I hope you believe the old adage "Better late that never". Well the prize for week 4 is a $15.00 Ben Franklin Gift Card and a 6x6 album. I just made a page for the album and you'll have to look at the journalling to find out who the winner is.

Congrats week 4 winner.
