Head Over Heels Card

I saw this super duper cute stamp at Hobby Lobby on clearance. I’m not the biggest fan of rubber stamps. 1 -They’re bulky for storage. 2 - I can’t tell EXACTLY where I’m stamping at. But I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. So I HAD to buy it! Of course, it was to make a card for my tall, dark, and handsome!

I am definitely head over heels for this GREAT man! He takes care of me like no other! Since I don't live at home with my parents anymore and we live kind of far from my friends, he has definitely been my family and best friend. He makes me laugh and ANYTHING we do, we have a great time together!

For the card, I stamped the image on a white cardstock and colored it using the Memento markers. I’m stamping images more often now and have been eyeing Copics! However, I have made the decision that Copics are WAY TOO EXPENSIVE and that it is not necessary. I did also read about some alternatives, Spectrum Noirs. But those are still unnecessary since I won’t use them THAT often. I am going to buy some simple American Craft/Recollection stamping markers. They cost about $12-$15 for a pack of 5 or 6 -- that I can use a 40% off coupon on at Michaels. YEP frugal crafter -- err sort of.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Housewarming Card

A couple of weeks ago, on 4th of July, we went a Housewarming. It was for Dave’s friends, Heather and Joe. They’re actually the friends that we got Cody from. They have a beautiful home with a huge yard and a swimming pool.

I wanted to make a quick card for them to go with the gift card we got for them. I combined two MCT stamps – Small Talk Stamp Set & Home Sewn Stamp Set. It was very simple. I just used silver heat embossing powder to emboss everything. It was a VERY thin one layered card.

Since Cody’s biological parents, Jack and Jill and his little brother Junior, live with Heather and Joe, we took Cody with us to the housewarming. Let me tell you that Cody is a ginormous Yorkie. Compared to Jack, Jill, and Junior – he was HUGE (Now that I think about, I wish I had taken pictures of the 4 of them together!). Junior and Cody came from the same liter and Junior only weigh like 7 lbs. While Cody, the ginormous Yorkie, weighs 12 lbs! Also what made Cody different was that, we don’t have his ears pin up. He’s a floppy eared Yorkie. I wanted them to go wherever they wanted according to what he was feeling.

Everyone just asking us why our dog was so big and what we were feeding him. We feed him Royal Canin Yorkshire Terrier Puppy 29. Maybe that’s what made him so big? Anyhow, since it was hot, we put Cody in the pool. He was NOT having it. Lol Of course, naturally he swam and did his little doggie paddle. But he couldn’t wait to get out!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I will TRY and update on a regular schedule!

Helen's Birthday Weekend in Vegas

I thought I’d do a picture post today. Two weekends ago, we went to Vegas for Helen’s 26th birthday. Vegas was actually quite cool – for Vegas anyway. The temperature wasn’t in the 100s. It was between high 80s and low 90s and we even had some thunderstorms on our way there. We lounged by the pool, had dinner, and then went to a night club. I was in my flats/flip flops all weekend.

I’m STILL recovering from my sprained ankle. Dave is finally making me do some physical therapy. I started to exercise my ankle so it can finally start healing.

I had a ton of fun on the trip. As we’re getting older, we’re starting to travel with our significant others and not just by ourselves. It was great to see all the boyfriends/husband get along with each other. Dave is the life of the party so of course everyone else loved him too!

Nai's last days

I’m long overdue for a blog post. I’ve just been really busy and I haven’t had time to write a post. I have been making cards and other things though.

I actually made this about 2 months ago. My friend, Nai, had been looking for a job in Northern California. That’s where she is originally from. She wanted to be closer to her family. Well, she accepted a new position near the Bay Area and moved up there early June. Her birthday is on June 27th and we wanted to get her a present before she left.

Nai loves to travel. She goes on several vacations every year. But the funny thing is, she didn’t own a camera. She had one and it broke. I guess she never replaced it. I thought it would be a wonderful idea to get her a camera so she can keep memories of her awesome adventures.

Here is the birthday card I made. Of course it’s Hello Kitty. My Hello Kitty cartridge gets used twice a year. A birthday card for Nai and another birthday card for Mai in September.

This is our break room at work. This is where we catch up on our chismes (Spanish slang for gossip)

This was my last day seeing Nai -- the day before I left to Costa Rica. Her last day at work happened while I was on vacation. But don't worry! I'll see her again in August for Melissa's Bachelorette Party!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Melissa's Bridal Shower

Melissa’s Bridal Shower was on Sunday, July 8th. It was such a success! I wanted to share some pictures of the fabulous event. Her MOH Barbara was so generous and paid for the WHOLE brunch. Yvette,bridesmaid, did the fabulous center pieces that matched the theme of the restaurant. I made the cupcakes and a friend of hers made the cute wishing tree.
