I've been tagged!

I have been tagged by Wanda at My Creative Corner! I am sure you didn't visit this blog to read all about me, but alas, I will play...

7 things about me:
1. I LOVE ABC soaps-watch them and read Soap Opera Digest. I am hoping to make it to ABC Super Soap Weekend in Orlando some year.
2. I am so blissfully married to my best friend for 18 years. We hope all our friends/family are jealous. Especially the ones who didn't think we would make it.
3. I am a nurse in an Emergency room. I used to work in a big Trauma Center in the inner city, but gave up that glamour for a smaller hospital. It is a lot less stress, but I do pick up some hours at the old place to visit and remind myself why I left in the first place.
4. Wish I had a bigger scraproom with a nice stereo, TV, and tons of pictures on the walls. Right now, I have my stuff on 1/3 of our 3 season patio. It makes it tough to scrap in the winter.
5. I like to go on date night one on one with each of my children. It doesn't happen enough. My kids are 13, 7, and 6. It always intails dinner and some other activity.
6. I hate cleaning my house, but LOVE it when it's clean. Someday, when in the budget, I plan on getting someone to clean my house. It probably will be behind my husband's back, though. He hates strangers cleaning up his "stuff".
7. Can't wait for my first tomatoes from my vine! I will have BLT's and marinated tomatoes with mozzarella a la Panara restaurant. Yum!

I debated whether to tag people since I like to visit blogs for their cards. I don't think I will tag people, but will list a few of my favorite blogs. I am sure they all have been tagged already!
Here we go:
1. I love Maria's blog. She must make a hundred cards a month. Her sketches are awesome!
2. I visit a couple popular ones every day. I am sure you have heard of this one from Debbie. She seems closest to the style I want to be! I steal from her often.
3. I am addicted to sketches lately. Love this site, too.

Other than the massive list on my blog of blogs to visit, check these out. Maybe I can interest you in a site you never knew about. Thanks for reading about me and hope I didn't bore you!

an idea I stole...

stamps: Happy Harmony
paper: Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Confetti White, Basic Black
ink: Perfect Plum, Versamark, Basic Black
accessories: Old Olive marker, clear embossing powder, olive grosgrain ribbon, black gingham ribbon, Signo gel pen, heat gun, paper piercer, key charm

We just got back from vacation at a state park in Indiana and had a great time. I do have several souvenirs, though...many, many, many mosquito bites. Worth it, though. Back to stamping today. A quick one for you all. I used a just mounted Happy Harmony that I will miss. I was on a Plum kick after seeing a similar one awhile ago, but can't remember where. I thought it might make a sweet anniversary card for someone. Thanks for visiting!
