Lucky Lucky Me!

Al and I are celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary on February 11th. We were planning on going to Hawaii on our 10th, but our little Ms. Aly was born a month before which kinda put everything on the back burner. Since then life has just gotten in the way and Hawaii might be a 15th wedding anniversary trip now, if we are lucky. So, to celebrate the last two anniversaries and this one ahead Al has planned a weekend away for the two of us. He was doing a really good job of keeping it a secret and normally I have no problem with secrets. I love a good surprise, but for some reason this one was bugging me and I made him tell me. Soooo…. this is where we are going this weekend!


This is the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I guess when we arrive we are both having pedicures and they will be serving us ice cream sundaes. OMG my hubby loves me!!! This is not all, he has the whole weekend planned for rest & relaxation! I can’t wait!!! I will give a full review after we return, that is if I am not a complete blob of jello 🙂 Wow, I would so love to be a blob of jello!

Hoping to get some cards or something creative done with paper today. If I do I will be back later to post.

Our Family Valentine


Since I didn’t get out Christmas cards this past year I decided I would send out Valentines for our family & friends who we haven’t seen in a while. Thank goodness I still had some Cool Caribbean card stock left, because it matches what the boys and I are wearing in the photo. Al and Aly are wearing navy, but I couldn’t find any cardstock that matched without looking washed out. I really like Cool C, wish it would have stuck around a little longer! Darn you Stampin’ UP! for being so “IN” with your colors! I would have loved to put a bit of embellishments on this, but it has to go through the mail and I am sure it would have been eaten by one of those card hating machines. I used Tombow removable adheasive on the back of the wallets sized photo, so that it can removed easily and put right into someones wallet or frame. Hopefully it won’t come off too easy and fall off in the envelope…yikes! I stamped the envelope with hearts using Cool C and Real Red to match.

Gotta get these in the mail. Have a super day!! HOPEFULLY I will be able to post again tomorrow 🙂

Bee Mine



Here is the card I made for the challenge. Check out the Artistic Avenger to see what Carrie created. The rules were pretty simple, must have a heart and the colors Always Artichoke, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Bashful Blue.  The layout on my card is similar to one I just did for a small swap put together by Cindy Stoll. I can’t wait to get those swaps back so I can show you.

Well Carrie, thanks once again for the challenge. I had fun and I hope you did too!

Have a great weekend!!

A Valentine Flower and Card for you


I finished these up and had to get a picture out. The card is cased from a sister demonstrator, Debbie Gardunio. She made a card with the same colors and layout, I just changed the stamps. The flower pot was inspired by something I recieved at the SU Convention last summer. I used all punches to make this except for the heart of course.

These are the other two projects we will be making this Saturday at my stamp camp. I am still not sure about the card I made on my last post so that might actually change…not sure yet. If I do make something else I will post that here on Saturday.

Well gotta run! Have a great weekend!!

For a man or made for a woman?


Do you think this card is too flowery for a man? I always have a hard time making cards for guys. This will be one of the cards for my class this Saturday. I am going to bring a bunch of other sayings in case someone doesn’t want a Valentine card. This could really be a card for anything, which is nice. I will post the other two projects I am working on this weekend. Another Valentine card and a little Valentine treat made using punches!

Have a fantastic rest of your week. Thanks for stopping by!
