100 posts!

LOL! What could I have possibly had to share that i already have 100 posts. I guess that's why they call me Gabbie! When I go back and look at my earlier posts I just laugh. there are no comments and I Know for sure that no one else was visiting my blog except me! I even posted something on" to blog or not to blog.."

I did go into my dungeon studio and try to clean up a little so that i could sit down and work with some of my new stamps. The mess is just too much for me to handle.
As I was putting away my things Coco fell out of her folder and I decided to stamp her up! I think that the image is very sultry and I was trying to come up with a little story and a title for Coco ... like Coco meets client #10, or waiting for Eliot, but I didn't think that she wants to be associated with the mess that has taken place in NY.
The client #10 story would be something like this....
Client #10....Hello, is this Coco?
Coco... yes this is. I am available for $ 2400 an hour. How can i help you?
Client #10...well i heard all about you and thought i'd give you a call. Can you meet me at a Hotel in Washington?
Coco...are you a politician? I don't think i can handle any more clients in that field. too much press if you know what i mean. My last client left me in a pinch and I can't afford my apartment anymore...if i don't get another client soon, i'll have to move back with my mother. Maybe you could meet me in New Jersey?
Client #10...well maybe this isn't such a good idea.
Coco...Yeah maybe you're right.
So Coco still waits. Leaning on the fence waiting for client #10 who's got 80K to spare!

(Can you believe what has happened!!!!! First of all I can't believe that his wife didn't miss 80K! Unbelievable! Imagine all the stamping supplies you could buy with that money! The comments that are being made in my house by my kids are comical. My older daughter says..."see, that's what happens when you're have to pay for everything!"
My younger daughter asked about the lady standing next to him in all the news releases. I said that's his wife... My daughter said " I'd punch him in the head!" and I said, " i wouldn't be standing next to him! "
my son Stephen just keeps laughing....the whole thing is very sad!)

Back to Coco! I'm picturing her in Rome or Paris, somewhere very romantic waiting for her lover to arrive. He should be arriving soon! She's all dressed and ready to go. I know he's just going to love those fishnet seamed stockings!
I didn't really feel that she needed too many embellishments so I really kept everything simple. matted the image with black and gray paper and just added a swirly paper clip thingie with a little black sheer ribbon, the DP is by Basic Gray and is called Scarlet Letter.
Thanks for visiting!
Smiles :)

ROFLOL..Client #10 Waiting for Elliot! Thanks... spewing Diet Coke on my monitor!

I said the same thing, NO way would I stand so stoically next to that man...hubby says, he still has money, I said, OH, I'd have his money but I mean, to stand next to that man in public showing MY support for him...Phooey! Not a chance in H E double toothpicks!

Congrats on the 100th post Lorraine! I've only found "blogs" in the last few months, and I am SO happy that I found yours! I enjoy it thoroughly and hope you continue so that I can visit :)

Love the story very funny and this card is fabulous!! Maybe you should write the story inside and send it to Mrs. Spitzer!! Maybe then she will get some sense!!

Amanda Sewell said...

I love this card! Perfect in black and white! You should submit it to a B&W call, I think there is one at Stampington coming up soon . . .

I have you in reader and I like chatty blogs-I debated on mine whether to just post photos of cards etc and decided I would always post something from my day or my thoughts. So chat away and know there are visitors even if we dont'always post a comment. I read over 800 blogs a day,(I have no life stuck out in the boonies) so I select maybe 20 to comment on each day.

Jen said...

I love, love love your story behind Coco! Thanks for sharing and congrats on your 100th post!...I think I just reached 10=).
Have a great day!

Lizette said...

Congratulations on 100 !
80k ? Hard to believe isn't it? I think if my dh made enough $ to waste that much and I didn't notice it goen, I might stay with him. He's loaded ! He'd just have to sleep in the garage.

Velta said...

Gabby HUH? I swear I laughed so hard when I read this...Love the Card, but your sense of humor really shows on your blog. Makes me smile every time I visit !!!

Mlle. Coco est tres chic!
As to a husbands $80k hooker bill-I guess women who are married to men who have that much cash to burn learn to look the other way and she is now justified in running up one heck of a Bergdorf's bill!!!!

Rosella said...
