What a great day we had yesterday!  For Kate’s graduation, her fiancé gave her 6 tickets to the Kenny Chesney concert.  Being that my mother drools every time she see’s him or listens to one of his songs, Kate invited all the ladies in the family to go with her to the concert!

Kate and Will


Mallory and Carrie (my sister who can’t tolerate the sun)


Me and Mom


The Concert started with someone I can’t remember, then there was Miranda Lambert.  Pictures were too blurry to upload.  Then came

Lady Antebellum


Montgomery Gentry




We enjoyed our day people watching.  There were sights such as

The Tiki Man


The guy who continued to wear his wife beater


But then there were these cute little girls in front of us that we had a great time with!


Sometime after Montgomery Gentry, mom and I decided we needed some beers to help us through the day.

Kate with mom (after a few beers)


Then the main concert started . . . KENNY CHESNEY

Still more Kenny


Sorry some are blurry . . . we were sitting pretty far away.  I just took the pictures and then cropped the dickens out of them.

Great day, good times!!

Good Saturday morning!  The winners of the Rubbernecker Blog Stroll have been posted on the Rubbernecker Blog.  Congrats girls . . . The stroll was lots of fun!

Today I’m spending the day with the women in the family.  Where are we going?  A concert!!!


More later!

Today Rubbernecker Stamps releases 5 new sets!  To celebrate this release, we invite you to Blog Stroll along with the Rubbernecker Red-Hot Mommas.  The Stroll begins at the Rubbernecker Stamps Blog where you will find the guidelines on how to win one of the four sets being given away during this release.  If you haven’t started at the Rubbernecker Blog, you should go there as soon as possible. That’s where you’ll find the first clue to begin your Stroll and where the key words for the phrase actually starts.  I’ve noticed that some of you don’t start at the Rubbernecker Blog and then leave out part of the words in the phrase you submit.   Sorry y’all but I can’t count those in the drawing for prizes.

I’m very excited about these images and find that they are so versatile.  They can stand alone or be combined to make scenes, collages . . . really, anything you desire to make!  Remember this card?


I used the Butterfly and Flourish Inchies being released today, along with the large Flourish and Floral Silhouettes released earlier.  Pretty sneaky huh?

For today’s card I’m using the new Diva Inchies.  If you like shoes, purses or hats, you’re gonna LOVE this set!  There’s a little BAD humor in today’s card . . . . let’s see if you can put it all together!  Actually, let’s put it together with today’s Blog Stroll.  When you leave your comment to be considered for one of the 4 free stamp sets today, tell me what you would call this card.  I won’t tell you yet what I had in mind  . . . I want to know if you can see it and/or guess it.


This card actually started out as a card for this week’s WACKY WEDNESDAY Challenge, but then I had another brainstorm (yes, you know it hurt) and had to move on to that idea.  The images were stamped, die cut and embossed to be Inchies, and then they were placed on a layer of pink cardstock.  The pink layer was die cut with the Spellbinders rectangle that I die cut out the middle of the black cardstock.  It fit together beautifully and made its own frame.  The background panel was stamped with Rubbernecker’s new Flourish set.  I found the sentiment in among my Rubbernecker stamps, but because it was rather large for what I wanted, I generated it with the computer to fit my Spellbinders tag.

  • Stamps:  422 Diva Inchies and 463 Flourish Set from Rubbernecker Stamps
  • Paper:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White; SU Pink Pirouette and Basic Black
  • Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; SU Pink Pirouette
  • Accessories:  Spellbinders Classic Square and Long Classic/Scalloped Rectangle Nestabilities, and Tags 5 Shapeabilities; Copic Markers;  Ranger Matte Accents; Doodlebug Designs Lily White Jewels; May Arts Ribbon; Computer; Venture Foam Tape

The Blog Stroll ends with me and my clue in the phrase is:  Inchies Along!  I hope you’ve started at the Rubbernecker Blog, followed the instructions for the hop – visited all the other blogs, left comments, and have found all the phrase clues.

To win one of the newly released sets (or any of the other new releases since April 1), all you have to do is leave me a comment, and then email the phrase (with the correct subject line and your mailing address) that you found on the stroll to me at [email protected].   The Blog Stroll will end at 12:00 Noon on Friday, May 28, and the winners will be announced on the Rubbernecker Blog!

I hope you enjoyed the stroll and thanks for stopping at the BAD Side for awhile.

Smiley from millan.net Good morning!  I can hardly believe that it’s Wednesday already . . . of course, I always get my days messed up when we’ve had a long weekend.  I got to spend a large amount of time in the studio and I’m almost (now I said almost) caught up with projects due this week.   Can’t ask for anything more, can I?  Well, I could Smiley from millan.net I could!

Since today is Wednesday, it means that it’s time for another WACKY WEDNESDAY Challenge!  Kittie is our hostess today and she has challenged all of us to make a card using some type of frame.  You can find all the details about participating in the challenge and how to win a 40% Discount on your next Rubbernecker order at the Rubbernecker Blog.

My card for today is using the new Diva Inchies Set to be released tomorrow.  Oh yeah . . . Rubbernecker Stamps is releasing 5 new sets tomorrow and since it’s a release day, there’s gonna be another Blog Stroll!  WOO HOO!!!!!  I do love the Blog Strolls.

Anyhoo, here’s my card.


My frame is made from cardstock using Spellbinders Long Scalloped Rectangle Nestabilities.  The cardstock was just a little flimsy, so using the same die, I cut a light weight piece of cardboard to attach it to.  I used Spellbinders Classic Square Nestabilities to cut the images.  The background panel was a white piece of cardstock that I airbrushed using a pink Copic Marker and the Spellbinders Flowers Impressabilities.  The bottom of the background panel was die cut and embossed with the Spellbinders Petite 5-1/2” Deckled Scallop Borderabilities.  To add a little accent to the frame, I applied Ranger Liquid Pearls around the scallops and then colored the inside border with a Silver Spica Marker and then went over that with black.  If you can tell in the photo, the frame is raised over the images with foam tape.

  • Stamps:  422 Diva Inchies and 456 Fashion Set from Rubbernecker Stamps
  • Paper:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White; Prism Baby Pink Medium and Black
  • Ink:  Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Accessories:  Spellbinders Flowers Impressabilities, Petite 5-1/5” Deckled Scallop Borderabilities, Tags 5 Shapeabilities, Classic Square and Long Classic and Scalloped Rectangles Nestabilities; Copic and Spica Markers; Copic Airbrush System; Ranger Matte Accents and White Opal Liquid Pearls; Venture Foam Tape; May Arts Ribbon; Brads

I hope you play along with us this week in the challenge and join us tomorrow for the Blog Stroll!  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

Well, it’s only taken me all day, but I finally finished a card.  Actually, it’s probably not taken ALL day . . . Mr. Stodgy bought me a printer for the studio this afternoon and that had to be set up and installed, then more organizing needed to be done so the printer would fit.

While I was checking emails and blurfing this morning, I checked in on the Technique Challenge on SplitcoaststampersToday’s challenge is to make a hinged card.  I’ve seen these hinged cards on a number of blogs and just had to play along.

This is the closed card


and then the open card.


This card may not have taken me so long, if I could have made up my mind about a few things.  When I finished the card, I wasn’t satisfied with it.  I ended up adding the brown ribbon along the bottom and then added layers to the cake.  I stamped out and colored two more images, and but them down for the middle and bottom layers.  This I like better!


I hope you’ve had a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
