This week is also sneak peek week. Ian and I got in on Sunday afternoon after a week in Cleveland, OH and of course, I have no samples ready for the sneak peek. But I know that the Design Team will! So make sure to check out all their blogs above for the sneak peeks and to enter blog candy also the HSDT gallery at SCS.

I was exhausted when we got home and slept for 3 hours, I would have sleep on our flight from Chicago to Calgary but the man sitting next to me had his elbow in my ribs the whole flight and no matter what I did he wouldn't move it. It was a long 3 hours and 37 minutes! To make matters worse I have to leave at 6:30 am today to head out for a 2 day planning session in Kananaskis with my team from work, it's only one night away but that night is my 1st wedding anniversary. Oh well, we celebrated in Cleveland and we've known this for months. I will be back on Tuesday night to make some sneak peek samples as well as finish up the scrapbook I somehow ended up making for my Team Lead that is leaving the group. Too many things on my plate at the moment.

I will leave you with this one last Riley card that I have in my stash - which is now empty!

Kiss the Cook

Wow! It's Friday again. Somehow the week slipped by with work on Monday and then a course Tues thru Thur. I was responding to emails at night and just plain busy. I haven't really stamped at all. I have a half done card for our monthly Calgals challenge tonight. I better get that done before I head to Nancy's or I'll be harassed!

I made this 'Kiss the Cook' card for the stamp release and then I never got it up for the release and plain forgot about it. So here is my take on Kiss the cook.

Stamps: Kiss the Cook by Hanna Stamps
Paper: Bazzill, Basic Grey, PTI white

Accessories: Bazzill brads and Flowers, Basic Grey Infuse ribbon

I'm hosting HSC34

I'm the host this week for the Hanna Stamps Challenge, on the Members forum on SCS. This week's challenge is my first sketch challenge. I actually figured out how to design a sketch in Photoshop Elements and it wasn't that hard.

Here is my sketch:

And here is the card I made with the sketch:

Be sure to check out the HSC34 gallery to see whatever one else has done.

I know its been awhile since I posted on my blog but work has been really busy and I haven't had the energy to stamp. It's really hard sometimes to use the left brain all day and then come home and get the right brain flowing. I'm an engineer for an oil and gas company not sure if everyone knows that so I spent my day with numbers and meetings. I'm on another course next week for some software training then Ian and I are going to Cleveland from the 21st to the 28th (our 1st anniversary is on the 29th!) as he has a training course and I'm tagging along then I come back and spent the 29th and 30th at an offsite meeting for work .... and it's October then. WOW! Because of all this I suspect I am going to be a little absent this month. I think I'm really going to miss stamping this month.
