Some stuff to share

The "chatting" part of the post can wait til tonight, but here's some of the work I did this weekend. The cards are simple- my style, I just cannot seem to do the fancy stuff. The pictures scanned from the album are a little crooked, but you get the idea. The album is DH's Valentine's present- a whole collection of me and us on various trips and vacations. Shush- don't tell him! This card was my first try at misting. I used my LePlume pens and then misted- I really like how it came out.

I made this card with one of my favorite stamps- Cornish Heritage Farms Trees backgrounder. I really LOVE this stamp- it is versatile and beautiful.

This is a picture of us in Florida last June. The album is a kit from Creative Memories- it was a special last Valentine's Day. I bought it at least year's weekend intending to use it for something for DH but just got around to making it this weekend.
Here are a few more pages from the album:

Here are the formal night portrait from our cruise to Bermuda last summer, dessert at the Luau at Disney World a couple years ago, and me being a "groupie"- sung to in the audience at a show on the cruise by the wonderful Moses Taroy!
I'll tell all about the scrappy weekend later!

Hi! Just poppedin to catch up on what has been happening for you. The lion stories are terrific and horrific. I look froward to them. Your Silhouette machine looks wonderful! I had not heard of them before and must check one out. I love the album you completed for your DH. What a special thing to do. CM is one of my all time favourite scrapping suppliers. Thanks also fro sharing your card making techniques - the misting effect is so nice. Cornish Heritage Farm certainly makes some lovely stamps and you know how to use 'em.

Oh - and congratulations on your new aristocratic title. Very impressive! Lol!

Have a great week :-)
