Sneak Peek Day for Gina K!

Hello my dear friends!  How are you all doing on this wonderful Thursday?  So far so good here even if we are crazy trying to get bunches of things done for our barbecue this weekend.  The barbecue is very casual and informal on Sunday BUT I use these events (shhhhhhh please don’t tell) to get my hubby motivated to get stuff done, LOL!  He has a really bad friend that sits on his shoulder called “PROCRASTINATION”, yes I see you nodding your heads along with me cuz’ either your hubby/significant other has this problem or you do, LMBO!  This friend is ALWAYS with my hubby and it can cause serious issues in the Dean household my friends.  I am always running at 200 mph (if you know me or have seen me you know this to always be true, lol) and my hubby runs at about 25 mph.  Now this is great for the most part as we can usually equal each out somewhere in the middle---he makes me slow down occasionally and I make him speed up.

BUT there are times when I can take NO MORE and must use my magical powers to get things done.  One of these magical powers is to schedule parties at our house—nothing motivates hubby more than unfinished projects that the GUESTS MIGHT SEE.  He doesn’t care that I’ve been seeing them for months but have some guests enter the picture and he gets on a roll like ya lit a firecracker under his hiney Winking smile!!  So now he is busy finishing up flower beds that he started in MARCH PEOPLE---and working to get them done.  He has been working in the dark to finish them up, LOL and I have said NOTHING.  As I get older and the longer we’ve been married (16 years) I learn that less is more when it comes to my MOUTH, hee hee so I just nod my head and agree to his ideas and out the door he goes.  So by Sunday my flowerbeds will be perfectly planted, mulched and drained which is what I asked for back in April but better later than never right?  So now I’m thinking about my next party I might have as there are some interior issues I need fixed, hee hee---maybe August (I’ll give him some time to recover first).

I’m using a fabulous new set called Vintage Chic which is also the StampTV Kit of the month.  This set YOU NEED if you like elegant, fun and vintage images and sentiments!  It is jam packed with stamps that are just beautiful!  I embossed my image with black EP and then added Stardust Stickles to the white areas of her dress for bling.  Isn’t she fabulous?

I’m entering this beauty of a stamp into these challenges today as well:

Crafting for All Seasons (anything goes)

I was inspired by old-fashioned silhouettes and cameos when it came time to do my card layout.  I kept the colors to black and white---always elegant and chic!  Simple layering of Gina K Luxury cs (black onyx and white) and then I dry embossed the white with a 5x7 Cuttlebug folder.  The patterned paper was scrap that I cut out with my Spellbinders Labels 20.  The small black pearls around the image were made with a Viva Décor black Pearl Pen.  The double bow was done up with my fave Bow Easy and that finishes it off!

Now you need to head on over to Sharon Harnist’s beautiful blog to see what sneak peek she's sharing with you today!  And don’t forget to check back here  for the four day Inspiration Blog Hop series for May!  (my days are Tues, Wed & Thursday of next week)!

  27. Love the story to get hubby moving. That one is a LOL!! Mine is bad but not quite like that. I move at 250 mph and I think he is at about 100! Still balance and have to poke once in awhile but he is really quite good. Love that story and I may just use that one if needed. Great creation by the way.
