May 2010 SCS VSN Mini

These are four of the cards I made for the Splitcoaststampers Mini VSN (Virtual Stamp Night). It was Friday night but I wrote down the challenges and did these four last night and will do the final two tonight. Notice I stayed with the came color theme...I used up scraps (except for the card portion) as I am trying to clean up my stamp room! What better way to get them used up! ;o)

Zeus - Groomin' Day!

Zeus went to the groomers yesterday so we took before and after pics. Oh my! Does he look like the same dog or what! LOL He's about a year old and the girls just adored him...said with a face like that he should be in pictures. One of them said he looked like Benji and I said I thought he looked like the dog in Dr. Dolittle with Eddie Murphy!

Spring has sprung!

What's on your agenda for the weekend? I have big plans to CLEAN this weekend. We actually started last night on the outside. They cleaned up stones, cut back ornamental grasses, burned some boxes and grass, picked up the yard.

Tonight I would like to work on one side of the garage, make a trip to the dump tomorrow morning and Goodwill to recycle old TVs and computers. Hopefully the rain will hold off until we get that done!

Tomorrow afternoon I will be home alone so my plan is to work feverishly in the stamp room. We are getting ready for a FPU garage sale (Financial Peace University) on April 17th at the church. I have two boxes of stamps already to take and I know I will have more once I get in there and clean! I am hoping to raise alot on money for our emergency fund/vacation fund. :)

Sunday we are going to the church for Easter breakfast (served by the men), service and then will have lunch at our home: ham, mashed potatoes, veggie and a dessert. Then I am hoping we can sit down as a family and watch "The Blind Side".
