Somewhere Over the Rainbow ...

That's what this card makes me think of. Was kinda singing that in my head the whole time I was making it!!

And, I'll be honest ... I DID have to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line the colors up ... and I will also be honest and admit that I had gotten on the second-to-the-last color the FIRST time I stamped this ... and put the stamp upside-down ... which, of course, really screwed it up!! I kept thinking, "Maybe I'lll just leave that one off-kilter! Makes it looks kinda EDGY!! Nah .... just looks like I had my Stamp-a-ma-jig upside-down!!"

I am SERIOUSLY becoming addicted to the Gorgeous Grunge set, though! Sometimes all ya needs is a little bit of a splash of color somewhere and VOILA!!! It just makes me smile every single time I use it.

From Millan.NetI also discovered last night that it is "Shark Week" on the Discovery Channel. This makes me unusually happy. True Confession Time ... I LOVE the Discovery Channel ... and the History Channel ... and any GEEKY channel that shows documentary-type stuff. I don't watch much TV, but stuff like this ALWAYS sucks me in!! (Megaladon??? GIANT prehistoric SHARK??? How would I even have KNOWN that this thing EXISTED - and may STILL EXIST - if I didn't have the Freakin' Discovery Channel???)

I'm gearing up for church girls camp again. Making Secret Sister gifts for all the girls. EVERY year I always kick myself for not starting earlier!! Sigh ... seems to be the way I roll!!
