Mother’s Day & Hubby’s Birthday dinner

Our Son, Michael took us out for dinner to celebrate my husband’s birthday and Mother’s Day. The waitress took this picture for us.  I haven’t seen Michael for a few weeks and couldn’t believe how long his hair is. He has kept it really short until the last couple of months. We really had a nice dinner and good conversation.  He gave us a digital frame. Holds a ton of photos. Will have to work…

The linoleum and new sinks have been ordered and this week-end my husband is going to paint the cabinet. We’ve lived in our house now 18 years so its time to…

We used the Carousel Notes, Afternoon Tea DSP, Chocolate Chip Poly Twill Ribbon, & the Live Your Dream stamp set all found in the Occasions Mini Catalog. Did you know that the brass template, Pick A Petal, found on page 187 coordinates perfect with the Carousel Note Cards. You can use the template to do the paper piercing. So you get perfect…

Tart & Tangy Card Case

I found this card case on Paperpleasing.typepad.com. I know you are probably getting tired of this stamp set. But I just can’t stop using it. Oh, and the Summer Picnic Designer Papers either. It holds 4 cards that are 3 1/2 x 5 plus the envelopes. This would make a very nice teacher gift.
