1$ Kickin' It Soccer Kit Packs and All that Glitters

Well I am over the virus bug that I caught right before Labor day and of course my Dear Son caught it and has been out of school all week running a fever and being weak. Ugg, just enough to feel like a wet noodle and not motivated to do anything but bored enough to feel like you are never going to see the healthy times again lol. At least it isn't the N1H1 'piggy' flu going around. As the humidity has dropped up here and it is getting colder the viruses are really going rampant. I talked to a local nurse today and she said that she has never seen so many different viruses going around so early in the season. Yes, going to the flu shot clinic next week. Definately.

Now for the fun stuff!

Scrappity-doo-dah is doing the 'Birds of a Feather' coordinating color palette again this month yippee! I have three packs for you at a super price of only $1! yes $1.

And a fun freebie alpha as well!

Sale! Diva De-lite

Hi everyone. I had a very busy day running around chasing for a prescription fill. I found out that insurance will not pay for a 1 1/2 5 mg pill fill per day but will pay for me to take 1/2 of a 15 mg pill instead so I had to have the script rewritten and then they did not have the 15's at the pharmacy I went to and I had to go to another one but finally in the end mission accomplished.

Got Java? is on sale today and tomorrow for just $1 and Sassytude as well. Also we have a new mega collab of matching kits coming to you from Scrappity-doo-dah! Mine is Diva De-lite for all of those lovely princesses and girly girls. woo hoo!

Coming to the Scrappity-do-dah Birds of a feather category late tonight or early Friday morning!

Cappuccino Brownies Recipe

Helllllooooo.... giggle. I have now been working for about 2 months at a GM/Nissan dealership as a receptionist. Boy was it hard learning who takes which phones calls for what and all in the beginning. I was a case of nerves. Now that I am settled into the position a bit better I Have to tell you the scene from my angle. The new stimulus program C.A.R.S or as it is reffered to as "cash for clunkers". Is such a head ache. This is really a scary thing for the car dealerships. They have a TON of paperwork to file to get their money and if they don't get the paperwork in by Monday and into the government computer system by Monday night and everything just right they will not recieve this money. With the bankruptcy of GM we can't order any new cars in and the lot has practically been cleared out of the popular models of new cars. Which is actually good because they are selling the stock that they have in case the dealership has to close and then they will have less inventory to worry about and it is good for business in general. The dealership has to have a certificate from a junk yard stating that these cluncker cars have been destroyed, or at least the engines. The rest of the car can be recycled for parts. If they don't get these certificates from the junk yards in time they may not get their money. If the registration on the car was not up to date and there was an interruption in registration they may not get their money. If the computers are overloaded on Monday and they don't get these deals in on time they may not get their money.

And it is bad for these people too they have to sign a waiver that states they are responsible if the dealership does not get their money and their cars have already been destroyed!!!! They can bring back the new cars that have been purchased for something cheaper but their old car is gone.

This is good for the ecomomy but also has a few loop holes that can be a nightmare for the car dealerships. I think where I work we completed some car deals with the program in the first week multiply that by $3500 or $4500 and YIKES! I just hope that they are not left hanging through this. Well enough blab blah blah about the C.A.R.S. program.

I have a wonderful fantastic kit for you. I made a collaboration kit with LauraM of Smooth Sailing Designs at Scrappity- doo-dah.com GOT JAVA?? A wonderful warming kit with rich browns and corals, reds, and teals. Do you want to scrap pics of coffee with a friend and those shared moments over a cuppa joe? This kit is PACKED!

2 alphas
25 papers
4 worn and torn papers
7 word arts
several border cluster frames
over 50 elements

And it is on sale 36% OFF. right now. At $4.50 you are getting a marvelous deal on a rich and gorgeous scrapping product. :)

So what do I have for free for you. Why drag you here to my blog if not for a wonderfully delicious freebie? Glad that you asked. I have the most scrumptious recipe card scrapped up for you with the BESTEST brownie recipe perfect for a sweet treat with all of those cups of java.

Cappuccino brownies. These are very rich and have a coffee infused topping. Trust me! these are so great for the chocolate fix. They definately give a caffeine kick too. woo hoo! mrhahahahahaa. Quick fix tip... make the bottom layer from a box of brownie mix and just do the toppings.

This is two jpg images 5X7 plain card and double 5x7 (5x 10) printable recipe card.
Let me know what you think.

The new job is coming along nicely! I am feeling more comfortable every day. Answering the phones is a breeze. It's being the check out person that is complicated. There is so much to learn. It sure feels good.

Please consider joining us in the sketch it template challenge at Life-scrappers.
