I am sorry that I have not posted in the last few days--it has been busy around here. It was my birthday weekend and my family AND friends were so kind to me this year! And I want you all to know that I have met (only online--not in person) some of the nicest ladies on Splitcoasters.
If you had a birthday in February I pray that it was as blessed as mine!!

I also wanted to let yall know if you are wanting to see a cute, funny movie that your daughters could see (mine will be 13 in 18 days---she is counting it down) and my nanny saw it too, it was Confessions of a Shopaholic. We all loved it.

And I have also been cleaning due to not doing it in a few now I am off to STAMP AND CREATE!!!! I will see you later this evening with something fun!

Okay- I will stop boring you all with my crazy weekend. I hope you all had a GREAT Weekend!!!

Hello All,
I hope you all had a good day! I had a great day. My friend Wendy and I took a short road trip to Gadsden to a scrapbooking store. We had so much fun. To those of you that do not know, I have a dream to one day open Scraps & Stamps. Today, going to this store made my passion and desire of owning a store closer to surface. I do believe it will come true one day-"God can DO ANYTHING you know FAR more than I could ever IMAGINE!!!!" So I am leaving it in His Hands and allowing His WILL to be done! We had a GREAT time and now we are trying to think of ways that we can boost Wendy's Stampin UP business. Then...
came home, started supper, worried about daughter being in lock down at school due to a tornado warning, husband in carpool line...waiting...., Nanny wanting to walk around with a knife to eat an apple (see the end of this post), listening and watching the tv to see where the weather was going. Got supper served, Nanny and daughter to bed...husband and I are watching a movie and I am making cards for the "Male" Swap that I am doing on Splitcoasters and creating this blog. So here are the cards that I made...

Recipe: (all supplies SU unless noted)
cardstock: real red, so saffron (lf), summer sun (rt),
inks: image in stazon, words in basic black
ribbon: real red
misc: mini clips(HL)

For those of you who I have not met in person or on other blogs I just wanted to let you know that my family (husband, daughter and I) live with my grandmother and we her caretakers. She has parkinsons and beginning stages of alzheimer's, so I have to tell you that this blog and the items you see that I make are my therapy. Some days there is just no telling what might happen around was one of those days with her wanting an apple in the middle of a tornado warning. So I look at it this way my husband is saving alot of money!!
Thanks for sticking with me today through my long post. I hope you enjoyed it.
Happy scrapn and stampn til next time!
