Did You Know...

....what is Dr. John thinking? 
About Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore's break-up (shared this over Facebook already)
Dr. John: So....I see that Ashton Kutcher is breaking up with Demi Moore... (reading the gossip news on the computer) 
Me: There's your chance!! 
Dr. John: Me? No! I don't even like Ashton Kutcher.
Me: Haha...VERY funny :)
About my daughter Stephanie' TA Marking...
Steph:This marking is driving me crazy. Every misuse of a semi-colon is like gahh!
Dad:Are you sure you want to be a prof?
Mom:It's because you have OCD!
Dad:It's because she's a perfectionist.
It's the same thing.   (Steph: ........oh..)

About my first publication on Paper Crafts (365 Cards A day)
Me:  Yay! I bought a copy of Paper Crafts because I just can't wait for the official copy to come!
Dr. John: How much is that?
Me: I got it at Wal-Mart...just around $14 a copy!And that is a BARGAIN!
Dr. John: What!!!? Do they sell a page somewhere?  All we need is P. 70!! Well, just a corner really...(heehee)!
Me: ....(giving him a dirty look)! 
That Dr. John always cracks us up in our house! 
I am also sharing a card that didn't make the cut for the last Paper Crafts submission call (May/June 2012). Luckily I did have one picked! I just submitted as many as I could and I really didn't think much about "Quality over Quantity" like I said I would in this post. Just go with it--it's my new motto!  This card was based on the sketch provided by PC.
Make A Wish 
Hope this post brings you a smile. And if you don't know about my virtual birthday party, you definitely need to find out here. There are still 19 days left for you to join the fun!

Emily Leiphart said...

Hilarious! Yes, I always cave to buying my own copy first. It never hurts to have an 'extra', especially when you're in it. ;) I LOVE your bright and sunny 'Make a Wish' card, which is so not a reject!

Always enjoy your posts on the fun conversations. ;) You should send them for publication - they are good!!
Your card is lovely even if it was not picked up. Love the colours and the blings. Have a great day!

Christina said...

Heehee! You gave me a good laugh this morning, especially about buying just a page of the magazine. Sounds just like my hubby!
Congrats on your publications! Your card that didn't make it is amazing, too! I love those pearly dots on the flowers!

Barb said...

BabyBokChoy said...

Your entire family is just way too hilarious!!! I'm with Dr. John on that one :) Congrats on the pub and your card is wonderful, pubbed or not!

Lynn said...

Love your card Virginia...and your families conversations make me laugh...sometimes it's best to keep to ourselves how much those supplies cost :)

jintyoo7 said...

Hilarious post, Virginia - your family conversations are too funny. Please may I come for Tea?

I love the card, especially those white washed pieces on the side! how unique :o)

Kathy Martin said...

Congratulations on your first pub! I bought the magazine when I got my first card accepted! I went to the store to see if it was out yet and my card was on the cover!

Your family has funny times!

Tell Dr. John I didn't know that Demi and Ashton were breaking up? Thanks for the info! ;)

Dotty Jo said...

Your family are so witty! Love your card, Jo x

Arlene said...

Oh I just love the conversations your family has! Too funny!

This card is divine, loooove the shine on those flowers!

Rachel W K said...

the card is beautiful, it deserves to be published!! And I'm glad Dr. John is not tooooo heart broken over the demi/ashton split, it could have been so much worse!!

Lisa's Creative Niche said...

SO pretty! Love the side of layered papers on the sentiment side, and the added dots on the flowers are gorgeous!

Judy1223 said...

Virginia, so glad to hear that conversations in your house are similar to those occurring in mine...I really do need to start writing some down!

Love your card...and can't wait to see the card you had published (and I can't wait to see the whole magazine!).

Trinh said...

Ha ha, Virginia! Dr. John is so funny. Your card is so pretty! An extra copy of your first pub is smart.i spilled food on mine and was so upset with myself. Luckily I was able to find another copy before they were sold out.

Linda R. said...

Hugs, Linda

I love your Dr. John stories. Yesterday we were driving home and I saw your FB post and started laughing so had to clue the hubby in on Dr. John's antics. So when I saw this post today I had to call the hubby over so he could see Dr. John. Ha.

Beautiful card my dear. I just love how you can put such great texture and stamps together.

Kathy (krolski) said...

LOL! Funny! :)
Love your new motto and your card is great!

Lindsey said...

Welcome back, Dr. John!
Your card is a stunner, Virginia! Absolutely gorgeous. You're also making me think I need more perfect pearls. :)

Nancy said...

You sure do have some interesting conversations at your house...that Dr. John really cracks me up! Your card is stunning, if this was the "reject" I can't wait to see pg. 70!
I must have been hiding under a rock or something, because I just saw your "virtual birthday party"...I better get going on that.

LOL! Dr John is sooo funny! Your card is also stunning Virginia! This post definitely had me smiling from the start! :)

ivy said...

dr. john is such a good sport! he would get along great w/ my hubby!

will have to get on it to link a card up for your celebration!

Colleen Dietrich said...

I enjoyed reading your conversations with Dr. John, Virginia! I love a man with a sense of humor. :)

So, regarding the 'qty over quality' debate, I like your new motto. I mean, you never know what PC will choose! I had crafted once with Becky Oehlers, who had been published by them in the past, and she said sometimes they choose a card based on the color scheme, 'cause they're doing all green on that page spread. So, you never know. Go with your new motto!

And thanks for popping by my blog on the weekend. It is nice to see you!

Savannah O'Gwynn said...

I love reading the conversations that happen in your home!! LOL!

I totally understand your quality vs. quality--I say just BE YOU!!

LOVE your card--I LOVE the patterned paper on the side and those flowers with the pearls and color story! YOU amaze me!

Tejal said...

Congrats on your card publication!!
