It's over...

It seems unbelievable that I head back to school tomorrow. It was such a wonderful week off. I don't think I have ever really taken a break during Spring Break. I always hurry up and cram something in. Well, it was nice to relax. Now that Zoe is here there was no sleeping in but I still managed! The end of the week was the most relaxing of all. I headed to get a massage Saturday morning but found out there had been a scheduling error and I had to reschedule. So, I went to Wal-Mart to do the weekly shopping instead. Big bummer. But, when I came home Brett helped me put away groceries and sent me off to take a bubble bath. He is so great, right? I sure think so. Saturday we just hung out...our little family. Then today I did get that massage and it was great. Our neighbor watched the baby for a couple hours and we went out to dinner and had a nice date before the craziness of the week starts up again tomorrow. It was a great weekend. Tonight as she drank her little bottle and I held her as she was falling asleep I had tears because she is just so amazing. I don't know that I could imagine what it would be like to love so much.

Although I didn't stamp this weekend I did make some cards last Friday with the "So Very" set from the SU mini catalog. I also used the swirl from "Delight in Life" and I think that might be the most useful stamp in that set. I love it! I tried some different layouts than what I am used to. The paper is from The Color Block Mat Stack by DCWV and I embossed it with my cuttlebug. The tags are from the cuttlebug "tiny tags" die cut. The flowers are the Primas I won as blog candy from Lu-La's corner. Overall I liked the cards. The jury is still out about the happy birthday one. It looked great in my mind with those little words hanging off the edge but I wasn't so sure when it was finished. What do you think? But, it was really fun to make so many cards this week. We are plannning to move my craft room location for awhile since the guestroom/craftroom is being occupied by a guest for a few months. Hopefully if it is more accessable I will get more done! I used to be good about sending cards to my family but haven't been lately. I would like to get back on track with that. So have a great week and see you soon!

  4. Yes, I bought a friend's machine. Her hubby got her the newer machine that uses these fancy cartriages. She also had purchased alot of the plates and sold them on ebay, but had a buyer back out and she needed to unload them so I just had the perfect timing that day. She gave me a buy one get one free kind of discount on them. So currently I've got seven plates and the medium tags cutouts. We should do a paper exchange!! I wonder if anyone would be interested in that.
    Love the ladybug card. I'll try to upload it a little later, Cesar is bugging me for some attention. Have a great week!!
