I'm flying this week. I'm going to Stampin' Up! Leadership (pauses for squeals and applause)! Yes, please stay tuned here, and on Twitter and Facebook for up to the minute news from Stampin' Up! It should be fantastic! I'll post pics and breaking news as is my usual style, and the antics of various friends, including Dana and Monique.
Anyway, it's a nervewracking time to travel, but just a few blue thoughts on that.
We can't all hide in our houses from these freaks. Nobody is more apprehensive about flying than me to begin with, trust me, much less right now. But the pantybombers win if we stop living our normal, everyday American lives because a bunch of cave dwelling scumbags are driven to do evil deeds by some poor genetic construction or bad water or sand fleas or whatever.
So, just pray for all the fun girls traveling to be together this week, and know, if something happens to me, that I guarantee you I'll be one of the people who have made the last few moments of the pinkpantybomber's life extremely difficult. :)
So we will move on to serious subjects like fully functional blue paper ladybugs, shall we?
My sister-in-law is having a baby in March, and I am having a little shower for her this month. I wanted to do something fun for the invites, so I stole an idea from Libby for these little ladybugs.
They're so easy to do! I cut the blue and black pieces together with the scallop die for the Big Shot, and then cut the blue one in half. The inside (white) is with the other scallop die that has three sizes. I punched half inch spots for the outside.
I engineered mine slightly differently than Libby's so that I could have a little popup head. I used my 1 3/8" punch to punch part of a circle out of the top of the wings. This way, when I attached the head with dimensionals, the wings could swing free of the head (half of a 1 3/4" circle.) The antennae are from the Swirly Sizzlits die. So here they are closed, without and with the head.
And here's the headless one so that you can see how the wings work.
The inside is stamped with Sincere Salutations and Buggies and Booties. They fit in a standard envelope! Whee!
Now for some sad news. we are going to have to check Splotchy into some sort of rehab.
We ordered Austin's Pizza the other night. I had a GREAT customer service experience with them on Twitter after part of our order was wrong, so they are a peachy company and they make DELICIOUS food! Their pizza rolls put Double Dave's to shame, in my opinion.
Anyway, after we ate, Splotchy went completely nuts over the little packages of cheese and peppers! Possibly, the reason everyone says Austin's Pizza is so good is that their food is filled with CATNIP!! :D
Here is the picture of Splotchy's gateway drug experience...
