Another EPLS

Well, I was planning on spending the night stamping. Right before bedtime, there is a break in the news letting us know that there was a tornado warning. You know Hayden was already in bed! ...I was getting ready to put my other two sons to bed...I was really ready for quiet time! Larry was working late so it was going to be perfect! Then...tornados??? In January??? Whatever!

I still think the weather in Indiana is super weird! One second it will be sunny and beautiful and then the next it's a major storm that will bring all sorts of potential craziness! I'm not sure that I will ever get used to that. Anyway, I woke up the baby to bring him down to the basement with the rest of us...just in case...and thankfully there was no real danger for us. Of course, the warning was not over until 8PM so by the time it was all said and done I really had no time to stamp! ...and as I was going back upstairs to get ready for bed...it's snowing??? ....what???! Whatever!!!

Back to stamping...I have the coolest...or what I think will be the coolest idea for a halloween candy box! I am so ready to try it out and just haven't been able to do anything other than draw it out. I thought I was going to work on that one tonight. I guess it will keep until tomorrow. So tonight I pulled out this stamp that really cracks me up!

Here is a card using the Smarty Pants stamp set from Stampin' Up! I really love this set! The sentiments are hysterical! This is definitely easy peasy! ...but I think it's cute! ...and what can I tell you...the sentiment cracks me up!

'If at first you don't succeed, find out if the loser gets anything'! How funny is that! Love this! I used very vanilla & chocolate chip card stock. The decorative paper is Basic Grey. The pearls are from Archivers and the flowers are making memories from Memoirs. How simple is this! One stamp. Definitely some punching with the faux stitching but otherwise easy! ...and cute.

Hope you are all having a great night! I am off to sleep. Loooonnnnngggg day! ;) ...still wondering what kind of weather I will wake up to tomorrow! Let's just hope school is not cancelled! ;)

Take care!
