Sun and Fun PTI Pals Challenge

Our challenge this time was issued by the lovely and talented Diane, you can find the challenge HERE. I created this fun little card with my girl Hula Sophia G. I got my cricut out for the Aloha and the wee flower on her antler. And that grass skirt ..... how cute right ?? I paper pieced that on after I covered it with lime green stickles. For sure you need sunglasses when you look at this card because it is bright or maybe my eyes are just tired........ see below for the reason.



So last night ...... the clock was ticking and the the new website for PTI was changed back to the old one, which was fine with me because it was moving very fast. I put all my little treats in my cart that I wanted and was all ready for the release at midnight, the biggest treat I put in there was Beautiful Blooms Die #1 ...... I have missed it every time but this time I would not be denied. I was all perky and watching the Yankee game waiting for the clock to strike 0000 ......... well that time came and went and I never knew it because shortly after my cart was all updated and ready to go I heard gun shots ....... yes I said gun shots. Our wonderful neighbors seems to have a few people that do not like them, a pack of wolves would have more manners. Apparently a car drove by and loaded the bullets through the windows on the first floor. We live in a row house so we are all attached. Curt was outside until 0100 with the detectives ........ at one point when I was out there the detective told everyone to go in and check to make sure no one was hurt. This is just the craziest thing ever ...... we live on a nice block and Europeans everywhere ....... I just do not understand. I guess it should not really surprise me ........ I have had several encounters in the wee hours of the morning ..... anyway no one got sleep last night ..... you know that whole yellow crime scene tape kinda throws you off. Now I am doubly MAD because they made me miss the release and hence I missed my dies yet again ..... I really do not think they care next door about my dies and papercrafting for some reason......

Cute Sue Ann, so fun. BTW - the cinnamon rolls are all for my family! One will be for tomorrow's breakfast and the rest will be wrapped in foil and frozen. Then when we want cinnamon rolls I get them out the night before and gently warm in the oven on 200 for about 10-15 minutes. Yummy!

Very cute! I am so sorry to hear what happened in your neighborhood. The same things happened here a few weeks ago about 4:00 in the morning. We never saw any bullets though. We also live in what I think is a nice neighborhood so I don't understand it either. Glad no one was hurt. I am so sorry you didn't get your dies after all that! Hope you get them next time.

Wow, sure was a scary night! Sorry you had to go through that and the case gets resolved. The card is fantastic... so cute and glittery. You will eventually get that die, too. I have faith in you!

Such a cute little moose! I love the colors you used and that little pop of pink/red.

How scary is it that you had gun shots on your street?! I'm glad everyone is ok. Sorry they don't care about your dies. They suck :(

Barbara said...

Heehee, totally adorable, Sue Ann!

Nadine said...

What a fun card Sue Ann! How cute is the moose doing the hula and wiggling it's hips? I don't know if I can wiggle like that anymore.
And WOW what a scary night for all involved! Im so sorry you didn't get your dies after all that. Is there no justice in this world?

How SCARY that must have been for you and your family..

Dana said...

OMG Sue Ann...craziness!!!!Are you sure everyone is alright? Good grief I would have been freaking out in your position! (and not just because I lost out on my PTI dies again)!

I love her stickled grass skirt, and the double scallop border.
I was going to leave you a comment complaining that you needed a "follow me" button on your blog and then I happened to scroll down and DOH! There it was! Now I won't miss a single thing you do, my clever, sweet, talented, good cook of a friend!

Gunshots?? Oh goodness...I hope no one got hurt. When you hear gunshots in my neighborhod, it's because it's hunting season out here in the country..lol. I hope everyone is ok, though. That's some scary stuff!

I love this card..the little glitter on her skirt is cool and the layout is just fun!
