I'm goin Green baby!

Well after 3 weeks of Toyota not being able to find out car, our 08 Prius is in! We sold our Acura MDX to get it...I will miss it but not the 16 mpg! It's a hybrid, it's silver, it's 48 mpg and it's cool! Sam is driving to Wheeling, WV which is 7 hrs away! tomorrow to get it. This is the closest we could get the car from. Crazy huh?! More and more dealerships are unable to get them AND they're jacking up the prices. We got ours for the normal MSRP though a dealership here promised the same car, two months later, for $2000 more. Yay for price gauging!!

Anyway, back to the creative stuff! I've been in a little bit of a rut. I'm just kinda moody and grouchy as it is and tired, which means when Nate goes to bed, I don't get to create! I did get a couple of cards done this week though.

This is Nate's sideways birthday card. Grr.. I have NO IDEA why blogger keeps turning my photos around. Help anyone?! Anyway, I used Nursery Bash stamp set from CTMH along with their paper. Ink is Palette Burnt Umber and I colored it using prisma markers and H2O pencils.

Next is a card I made for the Case It challenge over at PW. I cased Stampin Meg's card. I used Lillyanna paper, my nestabilities for the scallop and my marvy punch for the circle. The stamp set is the new TAC set build a flower. So versatile, I love it! If you only get one of the new TAC stamp sets, this could be the one! Ribbon is from Target. Ink is Palette Noir and Ballet Blue, and Versamagic Pixie Pink and Aloe Vera. I love using chalk ink on bold stamps. They turn out gorgeous!

Well, I better get to bed early. It's going to be a long day tomorrow and Nate has been very daddy-centric. Oh boy!
