i got my crafty groove on this morning....made a bright and cheery birthday card for a very special dude, holt (my hubby's nephew...well mine too, wink!). i was just gonna give a sneaky peeky of the card but then i thought i would just go all out and show it off today. it will be sent very soon as his b-day is on the 23rd. he loves the color orange and bananas...so this is exclusively made with love for him and only him .
here it is...
i think this is my first time to ever use lots of orange in a card. turned out pretty good huh?
(supplies used: American Crafts, Scenic Route, Sassafras, EK Success, Fiskars, Stickles)
yesterday did a walmart grocery run and bought a whole lotta food! yikes. i use to only spend not more than $80 on groceries, now it's over $140. well it just use to be for 2, now it's for 3. i have an extra kid, i mean wonderful hubby to feed too. i made some gourmet herb sliders for dinner courtesy of my bestie's recipe, rachel ray...lol! this is my second time to make this and it's always a hit with my baby boo and my handsome dh. will have to make this sometime for a party.
yesteday while driving home from walmart, i kept thinking about our second wedding and how much fun it was...and realized.... there were never pictures taken of just my dress by Maggie Sottero. i think it was because things were running a little late plus it wasn't even on my mind to do it which is unusual for me b/c i love details. so i took quite a few photos of my dress one day. i didn't put it on b/c it was one of those corset-style and that would be awkward me trying to tighten it up by myself. i think i would have been cracking up at the same time too. lol! here's a few snapshots...
so grateful to have such a loving family.
