You are to funny! Glad you have a great sense of humor.
Marlene said…
Ahhh...thank you for passing this wonderful liar award on to me...heehee!!!!! I shall cherish it!

I have to guess that you did not lose your thumb in a Cricut accident, nor do you like hip hop music! ;)
Nordicblogger said…
Hmmmm...I'm going to say that you still have both of your thumbs, so that must be the "lie". Great sense of humor you have!
Emily said…
Youre too funny! I will say, #3, #6, and #7. Just a wild guess! I hope youre having a great day!
Karin said…
Thanks for thinking of me...This is so cute! Great candy too!
Oh boy.......OK, I will accept. Let me try and post it to my blog.
I will say maybe # 7 is a lie :)
ha ha
Thanks :)
Maria
Joanne Gilch said…
Oh tell me no lies!!! let's see..the lies are all but #2. Thanks for passing this onto me. give me some time to come up with a lie or two or six!!!!
Jean McKenzie said…
What a novel idea to have people guessing whether things about yourself are right or wrong! Wow that is a hard one but I surely hope you still have both your thumbs!
Rhonda said…
Tks Cheryl..lol #2 is the truth and the rest are lies. Will post when I get figured out who and a lie or 2

Pretty impressive Cheryl, the only one I don't believe is losing part of your right thumb in that tragic Cricut accident, ha ha! Thanks for sharing. ~Diane
Lindsay Weirich said…

Hey Cheryl, I think my blog would look terrific with that fun badge so here is my list of outrageous DOINGS and/or secrets. Real or fake? You decide.

1. My roots match the rest of my hair color.
2. I drove drunk down the side walk in front of the police station.
3. I kicked a Frenchman in the shins for crowding in line at the Louve.
4. I weigh less now than I did when I got married.
5. I once had a breast reduction.
6. My beverage of choice is water.

Okay, now you decide and let me know. Am I a teller of tall tales or what?
merniebug said…
Oops...I left off number 7. so here it is:

7. My neighbors have picked out my burial plot.

Need more? I'm just getting wound up.

FYI, I don't believe a word about that cricut thumb business. As for the rest, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. Now you better not be kidding about posting this to my blog or it's going to look awfully dumb just sitting there without explaination. Lol.....Bwa-haha.....As for signing up as a follower, I can't do that, I've already been a follower, stalking yuor every move. Mel
merniebug said…
You knot head. I'm just cracking up over this, and please note, I did post this to my blog. I follow rules. Tee Hee.....

Cool candy, thanks for the chance!! Congrats on the award, I think you lied about the cricut accident... the rest could be true but not sure.
Lots of love, Alex

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
