Please bear with me for a moment while I get something off my chest. I don't mean I literally need to remove lunch particles, a creepy crawly, or other unwanted article from my person, but I do have something that is bothering me. In a way, my problem is of the creepy, crawly category. I am talking about those teeny, tiny sugar ants that have appeared in my kitchen, more specifically in the microwave oven above the stove. First of all, the microwave is clean, spotless, free of anything even a teeny, tiny ant mighty find as sustenance. And yet, when I open the door there are always a few ants inside. I'd simply wipe them out and then use the appliance. After several days of this, I decided I wasn't going to do that, I was just going to nuke the little buggers. Here's where the disappointment comes into the picture. I was hoping they'd pop like popcorn, or maybe jump around like water on a hot skillet, and at the very least, DIE! But nothing. Zero. Nada. I opened the door and they were still just on walk about in my microwave. You can cook a fish, a hot dog, veggies in my microwave, but not teeny, tiny, annoying sugar ants. I needed to share that with all of you. I knew you'd understand.
Now, today's card.....
This card was created using A.J.’s Digi Globe by Amanda Marks, a piece of junk mail that came with my credit card, a piece of black and white DP (which will make you dizzy if you look at it too long), a die cut from the new CTMH cricut cartridge, Artbooking, CTMH stamp "live life", some bling, CTMH Trinkets Wooden Shapes, and some zigzag stitching on the sewing machine.
It was made specifically for the following challenges:

Below are 2 cards I made this morning at Joyce's open house.
CTMH has a new cricut cartridge which is responsible for the cuts that make up this 4 layer card. All we did was glue it together.
And for the month of September CTMH has a pretty sweet deal which lets you get 3 stamp sets for $10 with a $50 purchase. The stamps used on this card are from 2 of the special sets. The 3rd set is an alphabet set, upper and lower case letters.
