I've done what?!

Okay so I've finally decided, temporarily, to give into my Mother's roots!!  Um yea I'm a natural born blond, but I've noticed the older I've gotten the darker my roots have gotten, they're the color of my Mom's dark auburn color.  Don't get me wrong she has beautiful hair, but I really love my blond.... None the less I've had my hair colored a chestnut mahogany, and I must say I pull it off... HELLO of course I do (keep repeating Annette).... None the less I've got more GOODIES... Shopped Sizzix's awesome FaceBook sale and got a LOT of fantastic items such as:

Then I of course had to go back to, LaLaLaLaLove them!  Because they're having ANOTHER sale... seriously.. c'mon.. so yea I got the super cute Cricut Cartridges I have been eyeballing... among some other items... of course I'm going to list them..

I won a couple of things off of Ebay today as well... a whole whoppin 5.49 got me a pack of embossing runner tape, I will take pics and post so you have an idea what I'm talking about... $40 got me 162 yds of Scorpal tape different widths of course... 1/8, 1/4 and 1/2in. So I'll be so thrilled to finally get that in.
Hmm, after that I went Youtubin and found some awesome cards to make!  I love this one card that I found it's a fold out circle card... OH MY GOSH so STINKING COOL!!  I will definitely post a video of it.

One of my biggest set backs is that I don't ALWAYS have the items that are required to make the cards so I have to improvise.  Like for instance for the card I made the lady used a coluzzle cutting system of which I do not own... yet... so I used my Cricut Expression... and I still did an awesome job... it cut out the circles much easier in fact instead of having to use some silly cutting thing ma jig... of which... I still want lol, although after today and some other cards I've had to improvise I don't really think I need one.
Other news and update on my Grandma, she's doing well.  Still in the hospital, she will be there for another four to five days so that will be four days of cards for her that I will be working on this week.  The doctor's are wanting to get rid of the abscess by using these super strong antibiotics verses having to have surgery because she may have to have one later any how due to the mass on her kidney, but only time will tell.  
Well that's it for me... I've got to get back to card making in my PJs!!

I absolutely ADORE this--I've never seen it before! Is it 2 circles glue back to back, and then scored into 4 pieces?

No it's four circles ( I used my Cricut Expression since I do not have a coluzzle) scored into four quarters with a quarter of it cut out then folded together, glue the four pieces together and viola! I am so making more of these with a lot more pizazz now that I know the functionality of it! Thank you so much for stopping by, I love your blog... so much eye candy and information.
