Ya All Ready for This???

A 3 Dimensional Card made up of popped layers.

I used my 2nd largest Quickutz nesting circle for this.

This is another 4x4 card.  The challenge for this card was to use HOT sunshine colors, Yellow, Orange, and Red!
This would be a great menopause card, what do you think.  LOL  I am feeling the flashes as we speak.

Be a Baller.  
What is a Baller you ask???  
Besides being a Sports Themed Card for Cute Card Thursday, a baller is someone who is at the Top of His/Her Game.  Now you know.  Some kids at a dinner party were calling my 65 year old husband a baller.  I thought it was something sassy, and the "kids" (early 20 somethings LOL) were laughing at me.  I am only 35, but I am lost when it comes to the new terms and cool sayings.  I had never heard baller.  This is another picture of the day.  It is of my husband.  He has always been a baller.  He strives to be at the top of any game, be it work, our marriage, anything.  He is tops with me (gush, gush).

Have a great night, I hope I didn't wear you out, but my tape gun was rolling like crazy today! WHEWWW.  I hope you enjoyed them.  Don't forget to go to the top of my blog and check out my blog candy...I hit 10,000 hits earlier this week!!!!!  It is open until the 1st of June, 2009.
