Ok, so if you believe in the rule of 3, I should be done with disasters and issues for a while (but I'm going to keep my fingers crossed just in case LOL).  First, internet problems, 2nd youngest child gets in trouble at school yesterday, but now for the TOPPER!!  Tonight, after I had gotten the kids to take out the trash, clean the great room and dry and put away the dishes from the day, my older son, who is 10, goes #1 and flushes the toilet in the kids' bathroom.  All of a sudden, OVERFLOW and water EVERYWHERE!!  I was on computer at time and our computer room is right below kids' bathroom and I hear this pelting noise and realize it is water coming through the floodlight ring onto my carpet.  Best part - hubby out at meeting for boys' soccer teams tournament, so just me and everything had to be taken out of bathroom b/c water was all over the floor.  Uck!  Pretty sure a pipe burst or something b/c the kids overflow the toilet more often than anyone would like, but this is the first time it has "rained" in the computer room!!  (Also, there's some nasty musty smell, so I will be deep cleaning the carpet today).

But, on a more positive note, I am happy to announce that I will be serving on the DT for THE POODLES PARLOUR - woo hoo!!  We have a NEW CHALLENGE for you this week and the theme is TEA PARTY!!  Although you don't need to use a POODLE DIGI DOODLES image to play along, you can find them all at POODLES DIGI DOODLES SHOP and if you do use one of our images, you get points toward FREE DIGI IMAGES from POODLES DIGI DOODLES SHOP!!

For my card today, I chose "A Cute Little Chef" from POODLES DIGI DOODLES SHOP and I colored her with Copics and Atyou Spicas and then paper pieced her hat and apron with Basic Grey paper.  Other DP is also Basic grey, textured CS is from SU, flowers are Prima, Cuttlebug EF folder used on light brown triangle.  Nesties used to cut image and background.  Lifestyle Crafts dies used to cut sentiment which is from "My Cute Stamps" clear stamps.  Ribbon from my stash.  Hope you like it and will come play along!!

DIGITSTAMPS 4 JOY - fall colors
PAPER PRETTIES - earth elements colors
RUBY'S RAINBOW - for a girl
YOUR NEXT STAMP - paper piecing
