Something is Missing...

...other than me from the blogging world. I know those of you who read my blog on a regular basis have probably been wondering if I dropped off the face of the earth! Since school started back I've been so busy and worn out that I haven't been stamping.

There seems to be something missing from all the cards I make lately. I'm just not happy about the way things have been turning out lately. I guess I'm partly pleased with my new huggy bella card. If you know me well you know I'm the one on the right, wearing black and white, my signature colors! I also used the daisy from Martha Stewart. This is te first time I've used them but I do like the way it looks. I just think something might be missing from the bottom. I probably should have used a background stamp on the base so it didn't look so blank down there.
The next bella card is made using my favorite Bella, but again something is missing. It just looks too plain for my taste. But I think I'm gotten in the habit of overdoing so many cards that I don't think this one is up to par.
The final card is the one that takes the cake. I borrowed this set from my friend Trace. I thought about buying it when it first came out in the mini catalog but I didn't because I hated the birds. <--- Did you see that, I hated the birds? Do you see what I stamped on this card? OMG- so not me!!! I must have really been struggling when I thought stamping/embossing the birds on there would be good. It actually turned out okay, just not my taste. And I'm such a silver girl- and I used gold. Someone help me before I make another bird card!!!! lol

My DH is the BEST!

Today he gave me a Three Stone Diamond Ring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I still can't believe it! It was out of the blue and was a total surprise- I am so excited about it and shocked as well! It is a past, present, future ring and it has a total of 18 diamonds in it, princess cut (which is my favorite cut)!
He is such a wonderful husband and he said he wanted me to have it because I have had such a bad week. I found out I'll have to have shots for the rest of my life and was feeling a little down about it. Boy did he know how to cheer me up! lol I told him I need a new wedding band to go with it now, lol, I was joking of course! I love it! I just wanted you all to know that I'm married to the most wonderful man in the world!

I've been MIA!

I haven't been stamping much since school started back. I have been flat worn out when I get home and I normally end up taking a nap before I go to bed! I have been through more tests from a doc and he found out I have a B12 deficiency. I have started the shots and they say I should have more energy. I haven't seen it yet but it may take a while. The doc said my level was 164 and normal is between 200-900, so it was real low. I'm doing shots once a day for now to build it back up and get me going again. I am planning to go to a friend's house and stamp tomorrow so maybe I'll have something new to post.

School Starts Tomorrow!

Sorry that I don't have anything stamping related to post. I started back to work this week. Monday we had meetings all day and Tuesday was our work day/open house. I got to meet my new students and their parents. It was fun and things went really well. Today I presented to the faculty, along with my good friend Kelly. We presented all the wonderful things we learned during our Las Vegas trip.

My classroom is ready, I'm just not sure I am! lol I guess it is a little late now. I'm worn out from the week already but I know I'll get a burst of energy when I see all those new little faces enter the door. I am looking forward to this year. It has been hard getting back into the swing of things. This summer I didn't go to school myself so I just slept late and did what I wanted to. I am having a hard time getting up early again. They say the older you get the earlier you get up, but I'm still waiting for that! Right now I'm sitting here waiting for the washer to quit so I can pitch the clothes in the dryer and go to bed. I just wanted to check in and let you guys know I'm still in the land of the living!
