Hiya and Happy Monday! Here's to another week--can you believe this is the last week of October already? The kids are trick-or-treating Friday nite and then goin' to Grammy's house for 3 days while hubby & I go away to celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary! I'm looking forward to some time away--we're going to Alexandria,VA which is our go-to place every year for our anniversary it seems. I love it cuz it's historic and by the Potomac River & we always have a relaxing, fun time together. The kids have off of school on Monday & Tuesday for elections but we have to be back Monday evening cuz' my daughter has district chorus tryouts on Tuesday morning.
This first picture is of my "lunch bunch" gal pals this past weekend at my friend's Alex & Dan's Halloween party. My lunch bunch gets together the last Wednesday of every month and yayyy its this Wednesday--I always look forward to it! I'm the second one from the left!
My first card today uses this week's Stamp of the Week from Spiral Whisper--this lil' guys name is "Percy" by Janet Roberts. If you're interested in buying him he is 10% off all this week. I decided to make this an anniversary card for my hubby cuz' he's such a cutie, lol! I used the yummy Basic Grey "Ambrosia" dp & paper pieced his lil' vest. I'm having a hard time finding "gray" accessories--I have paper and finally found some pretty ribbon, but it sure is hard to come by. I used my CB embossing folder on the background Coredinations cs and then sanded it a bit to make the core color come thru. I used my Copics to color and added a few stickles to the flowers and his bowtie. The sentiment is from CC Designs "sugarplum sentiments" set. Think he'll like it?
And a shout-out for the fabulous Elisabeth Bell (of Sugar Nellie & Whiff of Joy fame)--she's having a wonderful blog candy giveaway right now--so go check it out!
