Top of the Morning to you!!

Hello! I know I have been a bad blogger but I have been busy and blogging is very time consuming. Here is the make and take project from when I went up to The Pine City Scrapbooking Company a few weekends ago. This card was mounted on a brown kraft gift bag however mine fell off with the adhesive I used that I purchased at Micheals. I hate when something falls apart!! Anyway it opens and the card is inside. Velco is also used. Marni (owner) did a great job designing it and teaching it to us crazy gals!!

Its 4 am and I can't sleep so I decided to work on a few things (updating blog and pack for my upcoming trip). I just tripped over my Cuttlebug (it has always had a broken handle) and that doesn't feel too good on ones toes in the wee hours when you least expect it. That will teach me from putting it on the floor!! I let out a few choice words and hope I didn't wake up the neighbors (sprinklers were in my favor for once)!!

Please be sure to go the Memory Box blog Click on the blinkie on top of my blog to take you there and check out my Friday guest blog. AOL acted up so bad for me late Thursday nite into Friday am. I am still having major laptop power and battery issue too. It was so awful I just wanted to throw in the towel as far as blogging is concerned. It takes so long to type up everything and I kept losing my text. Its always freakin' something I tell you. On a good note, I had a great time at the Glimmer Mist class I took on Friday. The teacher and my good friend Mary totally rocked the house!! I only bought one thing (key lime Glimmer Mist as I'm currently on a pretty tight budget). Trust me I wanted to go crazy and get tons more stuff. It was torture. I was just there last Saturday for the entire day so I had to be a good girl yesterday!! Restraint...LOL!!

I'm leaving town on Sunday afternoon for a few days of "R & R" and good times at the cabin which I've never been to before. Road trip with Cheri!! Fun, fun, fun!! I will try and check in if I go to Laurel's and her shop Create-A-Card Studio in Brainerd, MN . I will use her computer if I make it over to her lovely shop!! I hope so as its always a blast and stopping off at the Green Lantern near her home is always great fun too!! I will be in Malmo Bay on Millec Lacs Lake for a few days with my friends hopefully having a wonderful girl's summer get-together!! We won't be fishing either but will find other things to keep us busy...cocktails, stamping, scrapbooking, laughing, shopping, etc. I can't wait to fire up the grill and have a cookout. We are going to have smores too!! YUMMO. Well I better sign off and I think I will pack a bit. Please be sure to tell me what you think of the Memory Box card I designed on Thursday. Dave recently released ten new clear stamp sets and of course I want a couple what a surprise right?? I worked with the Glitterati paper collection and its wild to say the least. Lots of love and sunshine wishes my friends!! Your friend Tami : )

PS. Read this if you are local!! I went to Salad Creations in Maple Grove for supper on Friday nite. I can not say enough wonderful things about this place!! I give it a perfect 10 on everything and it was so cute and so clean!! The employees, the food, and the establishment were all TOP notch including the very clean restroom. The food (salads, wraps, homemade cookies) all looked so fresh and were beautifully displayed. I have never seen anything like it especially the lettuce displays/containers and the cute vegetable themed fabric hats the employees all sported!! I had a buffalo chicken salad wrap and it was so good. Thanks Cheryl for the heads up on this place and I will be returning soon. They have a punch card too. I will list the info. on my blog but its off Bass Lake Road kind of near CVS. TTYL and thanks for stopping by.

I used to eat at Salad Creations in downtown Mpls when I worked down there. Love it!! I think they are putting one in MOA too -- which would be the closest one to me -- Yummo -- it is delish!

Have a great time on your trip. Will miss you Wednesday night!

I just found your blog from a link on It's All About the Journey. I wanted to say I enjoy reading your blog and this card is so pretty. I like the way you placed the ribbon in this design. Neat idea
