Happy Turkey Day

I know I am a little early, but we will be leaving for North Carolina Thursday morning which is Thanksgiving Day! Claudia has a golf tournament at Duke University, so no cooking for me! 
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day! 

~Happy Turkey Day~

The latest challenge is up at BBTB! You are to use the "turkey" cut from the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. Instead of a card I thought I would make a table centerpiece. The rest of the very talented designers made the cutest creations!
Thanks for all your sweet comments!

Cards December 2008

It's finally here out on shelves, the December 08 issue of Cards! This will be my first publication with Cards and I am way excited. Kazan brought me a copy yesterday, because I was a little under the weather. We sat and went through each page. Kazan is also published in the December issue, along with many of our talented friends! Congratulations to all who made this issue.

Now That's Corny!

The latest challenge from Caardvarks is here and the theme is this beautiful picture of Indian Corn. I was more inspired by the colors and the textures from this photograph. 
The rest of the Design Team made some beautiful creations! Make sure you stop by and play along:)

I've Been Tagged

The sweet Rae from Simply Rae  had tagged me! 
Thanks my friend, I love reading new things about people! 

Here is mine:

•I have never had my ears pierced and never will, don't quite know why? Just never had them done!

•  One of my major pet peeves, whistling! cant stand it, it drives me crazy! Actually now that I think about it. I am not keen on any unnecessary noise! LOL:)

• I have to keep a paper calendar! Something about actually writing my deadlines down is just a must for me.

• This is too funny because I am not quite sure why it happens so often but... I am often mistaken for my husbands daughter rather than his wife!! Oh man does it drive him MAD! 
I just giggle and say thanks for the compliment;) 

• My favorite food hands down is... French Fries! Yum, I could eat a zillion and never get sick of them. But I am sad to say I cant remember the last time I ate them, and now I am suddenly starving! lol:)

• I love all animals/creatures that includes snakes, mice, rats, bugs! Except... SPIDERS I have a huge spider phobia. Eeeeaaaakkkk!

• I am not a procrastinator! I have to have things done and in on time or even better early!
For some reason I take huge comfort in this trait:) 

Pheww that was hard to come up with 7 things about myself, but a lot of fun!

Now let the tagging begin

Thanks for all your sweet comments!

My Favorite Day

Today is sleep in day at the Davis home! My favorite day. It's amazing what an extra hour and a half will do for you. Now that I am all bright eyed and bushy tailed here is my latest card from Sketch This: Cards! Sketch #75. 

Also if you have noticed I have a brand spanking new look to my blog with a little help from Sweet Shoppe Designs ! Yay & I LOVE it! The only glitch was that I lost some of my fun little widgets like my blog counter? Oh well:)

Thanks for all your sweet comments!

Fall Tree

Good Monday morning! We had a busy but fun weekend, Claudia spent the night at a friends house on friday night and Eric and I went out for sushi! Saturday I did some much needed cleaning and grocery shopping. Sunday was spent playing golf then a nice dinner at Kazan and Kevin's house. Kazan's two little girls had so much fun playing with Claudia! 

Somehow in the midst of all that my house dirtied it's self up again??? Augh my job never ends:) 

I did make a few cards this weekend too here is one of them for Bitten by the Bug!
The challenge was to make a project using the tree cut from the Stretch your Imagination cartridge from Cricut! The DT made some stunning creations, well done ladies!
Thanks for all your sweet comments!

*New Haircut*

I chopped off all my hair! These are not the greatest pictures because my daughter took them of me with my camera phone! I decided to go short, short, short. It's only hair right it grows!

I really like it, the only thing is that I can not get my hair into a ponytail which is a little difficult. When I wake up to go to the gym in the mornings my hair is literally standing straight up because I have naturally curly hair. LOL:)

Thanks for all your sweet comments!

I Voted... Did You?

Delaney at *Delaney Gates* made these darling "I Voted" buttons!
she has a few to choose from 
I voted... did you?

Thanks sweetie :)

Pink Pig Fairy?

The very talented Sherry Wright posted a picture of her son all dressed up in his darling Halloween costume. Sherry asked for links to see all the great costumes of this fun day!

This year Claudia decided she wanted to be a piglet, cute huh! When Claudia was about 3 she was the cutest little piggy for Halloween.
Well as it got closer to this fun time of year, Claudia's costume somehow morphed into a Pink Pig Fairy! LOL:) but still cute. OINK!
Thanks for all the sweet comments!

Happy Birthday My Friend!

Our relationship started out as neighbors 11 years ago. She was a newly wed and I was a young wife and mommy with a two year old.We weren't instant friends, Kazan thought I was snobby. Our friendship did not take long to grow. Being complete opposites we just gelled. Kazan is outgoing and fiery, she is very much the life of the party. I am reserved a peacemaker and extremely shy. We balance each other out you could say. Kazan and I have been co workers, confidants, and now business partners! I am so thankful to have her as my best friend!
Thanks Kazan, Hugs & Happy Birthday!
