 Good morning to all...thks for stopping last night decided that I should start going to the tanning beds do not want to burn on my Holiday...going back to the gym...not to lose a ton of weight but enough to hopefully zip line in Jamaica....For those of you who read my blog this is a stressful time of year Christmas and money...lets not forget what this time of year is all about it is about FAMILY is if you are lucky enough to have them around cherish that and put everything else aside and hug them let them know you does not matter how many things you get how many games you get or how much jewelery how big that diamond is or what type of soap for the shower...because nothing feels better than a hugs or the thought that if something happened your family will always be there to catch you when you fall...growing up as a kid my mom and dad always had tons under the tree but in the end i remember the family sleigh rides and the snowball fights those are the things that we will always in the end thks mom and dad for those things there is no price for those memories.....sending big hugs to all those I love and family for me includes my ya!

They replied "no mom there is nothing we need." Now this only proves my point they are growing up...I never thought that I would hate those two words..GROWING UP!!!! Why do they have to grow...I cannot even scrapbook a page of them because all I do is cry...cry and cry...Is there a treatment for this type of heart ache can someone let me know...Ok enough of my babbling here is a card and I hope you like it...Oh I made a quilted Christmas ball I will show ya when I have time to take a photo..hug hard and live loud...mwah

Monday Already!!

Last night Stefan and I sat down at 9pm to watch Empire Boardwalk....good show I looked at him and said where did the weekend go?   Saturday my friend Crystal got married it was beautiful and gave me some coll ideas to spruce up my tables for Christmas...Sunday I had a baby shower man I would love to have another little pair of feet around my house....For those of you who know me I get irritated with people who have a business you contact them to provide the service they agree and then something happens that you have to contact them and low and behold they have decided they are no longer going to provide you with service....Here is my story no names of course.  As you know Stefan and I are going away in February for one week I have four dogs two who were going to stay at Memes with the girls and the other two at the Kennels...This dog boarder is located on Pleasent Valley last night I call here to set up an appointment for the dogs to spend sometime out there to see how they interact with other dogs.  I say to the lady does Saturday sound ok for you..she says no that does not work...Ok when does it work for you?  GOOD QUESTION I think her reply " I have decided that I do not want to watch your dogs anymore.." I say when were you going to let me know this considering I booked with you 4 months ago...Her reply " I do not have to call you.." I thanked her for her time....Ok it is alright to change your mind but have the balls to call the person and let them know..needless to say I do not recommend her to anyone.... I have kind of come to realize that in today's world some people you cannot count on....On a positive note a big thank-you to the gals at STAMPINGBELLA.. service above and beyond....I called in a panic on a Monday needed two stamps for yes both of these occasion's and they came through they arrived on Wednesday..So THKS TO YOU ALL...hugs all around...So without further ado here are my cards both BELLA images... Hey thks for stopping by...make sure and leave me a comment...or just a thought...

Suzette KETTO
It has been a long week...I tell you I love the heat but hate it when it is humid.  Thank God for AC..Hydro bill doesnot approve or maybe its my pocket book..Here is the deal I love to color and in order to color I have to be happy and cheery.. To get happy and cheery means that as my daughter Kenzi would say not a hot Mommy..I must be cool and thankfully today I am...Not feeling the best but hey who cares..Oh wait one important thing I must mention..HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BESTEST FRIEND TRACY!!!! love you girl..I have a gift for ya..and no its not my smiling plump face... A big kiss and a hug to ya..Another reason I am feeling kind of crappy is my oldest daughter Carrington went on a sailboat lastnight for a birthday party..imagine lucky kids...heres the thing if you do not know me my kids are like my world..and mama is very protective..ok get the thoughts out of your head I do not smother them but I like to know all of the details.  Like when where, what, why ,an who is that so bad..Oh and wait can I come problem I am having is they are on the big water and if something were to happen I cannot just drive to her..My mom say to quit being overprotective that I have to loosen my apron strings...Ok enough about that and lets get to the card...This is the card I submitted for the second challenege over at was about bling..for those of you who know me know I like I used some Glamour Dust. Stickles and Smooch (love this stuff)..I also used bright colors...the stamp was colored with my copics and the image is SUZETTE KETTO for no other STAMPINGBELLA...hope you like the eye candy...thanks for stopping by..

Feels Like A Monday

Good Afternoon!  Can you believe it I am still in my pjs lazy or at least the kids are fed.  I have spent sometime cleaning up my computer because the Hubby is going to back it up...someone should tell a person how many hours that can take...and on top of all of that do you knpw how many times I have screwed it up.  Well I did color last night but there is something I do not quite like so I have decided to put a card that I did a while back ( is that one word) I smarter than a fifth grader I think will never tell my kids that.  Kids they ask you a questions you give them the answer and then they say I knew me to I hope you like the card and have a good day.
