I'm a lonely frog, I ain't got a home...

Sorry, this has nothing to do with frogs, that just popped into my head. I had a poopy stampin day yesterday...I got no lovin! I uploaded a Verve card into the Splitcoast gallery that got ZERO comments, and then I got an email saying someone had unsubscribed from my blog saying I didn't post frequently enough. WHAT??!! I know, I might skip a day here and there, but do you really want me to post 3 times a day? Seriously? Sorry, just had to rant a minute. I know you love me.


Charging Onward!! Here's my card for this week's Sketch for You to Try, courtesy of Jen. This one was HARD! I moved the circle, cause it looked better down at the bottom than at the top, sorry!

I stamped the three little Penguindians from my Havin' a Pow Wow set from The Cats Pajamas. Then I masked them and stamped the Tee Pee in the background...I love how cute they look!! I colored the whole thing with Copic markers and then matted it and added brads to the corners. The striped panel is from my Basic Grey Mellow 6x6 pad...it was the only thing I could find with all those crazy colors in it! Then for the circle, I stamped the hearts from Loving Mew, and How? (from the Pow Wow set) in black on top. I cut out the 1" circle, then a 1 1/2" mat, and then an olive scalloped circle to finish it off. I also love the Tiny Bubbles background...it kinda looks like snow to me (or maybe I'm just crazy...). Make sure you check out Susan & Carole's blogs for their take on this sketch, too!

So today is my oldest son's birthday...he's 8 today!! Makes me feel so old...we're going to Sonic and then to play Wii at my parents', so it should be a fun day! I'll check back in tomorrow with some Bella cards.

OH! Which reminds me! There are some challenges posted from the party last night, so head over there and check them out! You have till Monday night to play. AND check out the What's New section on the Bella site...I am in loveeeeeeeeeee with the Fairies. Make sure you get the code for free shipping on Em's blog ! Have a great day!

Penguindians -- I love it! Totally fabulous new term, copyright Steuby! Sorry you had such a poopy stampin' day; those stink. But you know I love you with the white hot passion of 1,000 suns, right?! (Not in a 'funny' way, though. Not that there's anything wrong with that...) And that's got to count for A LOT!!!

I just LOVE this set and LOVE your card, Shannan! Sending some LOVE your way, girlfriend! :) Hugs!

Lorie said...

How cute is this card? VERY! You are so good with color and composition!

Niki said...

Yep, we love you! I got an unsubscribe notice yesterday,too, and it bummed me out a little until I thought about how many blogs I have unsubscribed from. I just don't have time to read them all and some work, though beautiful, is just not my style. Weird that she doesn't think you post enough. Maybe she just picked any reason and didn't think that it would bother you.

Shannon, your little Penguindians (love that word) card is adorable! I've almost bought that set so many times! I don't believe you can make a card that is worthy of zero comments. (What's up with that?) Your work rocks! Please don't let the unsubscribed person get to you. People come and people go, but I'm *certain* more will come to see your fab work! Now I'm off to check out those new Bellas (**eyes rolling** lol).

Kirsten said...

Um, I ALSO got an unsubscriber stating that I didn't post frequently enough! LOL I thought that that was super weird, too, because I pretty much post daily, as well! Some people's kids...

Julie Masse said...

Looks like you, me and Susie all had that same person unsubscribe cause we've been so quiet - lol!! :) You know we love you! Your card is cute and it was fun "partying" with you last night! :)

Amanda Angert said...

Shannan, I love your blog! I think you post plenty! Yeah, I love seeing new posts but you have a busy life and I'll take whatever you can give ;-)

Happy 8th Birthday to your DS! Enjoy your day! Or should I say HIS day ;-)

Donna said...

that's weird! I love you, in fact I just posted something that was inspired by you today! check it out

Donna said...

oh I LOVE your card, sorry (I hardly ever check SCS but I always do blogs!)

Beth said...

This is the first time I've been to your blog (found you through i{heart}2stamp. Your projects look great! I understand about poopy stamping days. I'm new to the blogging world, like your gallery story, I get what I think is a good number of visitors, but not too many of them take the time to leave a comment. I like your take on Jen's sketch. Cute penguindians.

Elizebeth said...

This is so cute! I have been good and not bought this set, but I just love it so much!
Your coloring rocks on this too!

I hope today is a better day for you!

LOVE these little darlins from TCP. You did a wonderful job with the Penguindians and the sketch!
