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 🙂

My first card of 2008


Here it is, can you tell I am tired of the snow already. I need some color!! It is really sad that I am so sick of winter and it just officially started. Maybe it is because of all the snow we had last year over and over again. I am ready for spring…gee only 3 more months…blah!

This set ,” Time Well Spent” is a level three hostess set in the new 2008 Spring and Summer Stampin’ UP! catty. I love the sentiments and how fun and fresh this set is. I used water color crayons and markers on this so that some of the colors were soft and others popped. This will be one of the cards we will make for my next Stamp Camp on the 11th.

Have a super day!!

Happy New Year!!


Well here it is, my new room. I am so thrilled to have a place of my own to create. To tell you the truth it is a little overwhelming that I have no idea what to do with it. I have all of these blank white walls and have no idea what to put up. Like I have time to decorate the room anyway…ha! There is a large window to the right, which is the front of the house and it lets in such great light during the day. I still need to unpack a lot and put it away, but I now have all this great storage under the desk in those cabinets..whoot!!

I did manage to work on a card yesterday, but that will be posted tomorrow. It felt really good to get something done even if it was just one card. I can’t wait to do more!

Hope you all had a fabulous New Year! Al and I are looking to a New Year with a fresh start. Thank you so much for the warm wishes. I didn’t realize how much I needed them until I read them, so Thanks!!

Happy New Year!!!
