Thanks for bein' the Beeez Kneeez...

Hey everyone,

It's time for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge and she has a super fun again this week:

I was SO excited to bust out my brand new "Beez Kneeez" kit from The Caffeinated Cropper!  The minute I saw this kit on my friend and fellow Unity DT member, Amber's blog I knew I *needed* it ;)  The kit is put together by hand by Amy, a.k.a. "The Caffeinated Cropper".   Amy has put so much time and energy into these kits to make sure that everything goes perfectly together and the value is excellent!   Make sure you check out THIS post to see ALL you get in this card kit-you'll be surprised!

I was also really happy to be able to use my "Believe" set from Verve for this card.   I haven't been able to play with my sadly neglected Verve stamps in a while and now that I've got some more "me" time this week w/ hubby home til Thursday, they made a much-needed appearance ;)

I LOVE this new cardmaking kit and how perfectly everything goes together!   I had a blast making this card as a thank you to DH.   We've been through kind of a lot this past month and I don't know what I would do if it weren't for him.  See the nice brown stitching on this card too?  hee hee that's cuz last night my sewing machine BROKE and I was about to break into hives but it was hubs to the rescue and here's what I got ;)
LOVE that guy...and not just cuz he gets me stuff, but because he's thoughtful, and helpful, totally supports my stamping, and because he knows the true meaning of being a team.  So this one's definitely for you, babes.

On that warm and fuzzy note, be sure to check out the rest of Mercy's Muses today and see what they have in store, including our fabulous March Guest Muse, Dawn Easton.  The rest of the crew:



I will be back tomorrow with a DARIN' new sketch for you!

Live, love, laugh, and smile,
Jess ;) xoxo

Hi All,

i've been trying to figure out a good place to begin the acai free trial & was just wanting to know if someone had some thoughts on whether or not it works to lose weight? So far here's the one [url=http://creditreport.vox.com/library/post/acai-berry-free-samples_-how-to-get.html]article[/url] I've been able to read that seemed real for what my goals are. Opinions?
