O...S...U, Oregon State, Fight, Fight, Fight!

Today is the day that Brent and I draw a line and take different sides. The Rose Bowl is the best Bowl game that the Pac 10 conference can play in. Not only are we playing our rival game tonight, but we're both fighting for a place in the Rose Bowl. Double the pressure! Sadly, we're playing away...so while I love my Beavers and I want them to win...I secretly think the Ducks have better odds. Loser has to pay for a meal of Pho and bubble tea, so I'm not going to be out too much. :)

I don't have any rhinestone flourishes, so I stamped some flourishes in black and then put rhinestones over the images. I love how it turned out. And I also used Sweet Sunday Sketch #46 for this.

Paper: Basic Grey Ambrosia
Stamps: The Greeting Farm, CTMH Flourishes
Black Rhinestones, Copics, Nestabilities, Crystla Stickles, and American Craft Thickers


December 2nd, 2009

While I love the holiday season, I don't like the cold weather. As I was leaving the house to go pick up my dry cleaning and then off to work, I noticed our whole neighborhood was icy, lol. So here are some pics. We decided not to decorate the house this year since we're going to Portland for the holidays. No sense in putting up lights for just a little bit. I keep hoping that we won't have bad weather for the holidays.


Everyone have a wonderful Thursday! Grey's isn't back on til January, but I have a football game tonight! Cross your fingers for me...

  1. I love how you've done the flourish! I don't like the way the pre-made ones show the adhesive lines - this looks so much better! Another winner, Sparkle!

  2. This is seriously over the top cute. How fun that the Rose Bowl is on the line tonight. Makes it all the more interesting, right? I'm glad that USC could step out of the way this season.

    Have fun watching the game. I'm sure it will be on here as well as we're huge college football fans. Should be a good weekend of football.
