Happy sun-shiney Monday!

Well, kinda. The sun's poking in and out from the clouds ~ but it's still a beautiful day for now.
Did you all have a great Valentine's day? Did you spend it with the one's that you love? I did.
Hubby wanted to take Mom and Danielle out to breakfast Saturday morning so we went to Cracker Barrel, it's our favorite place (sorry Joyce, I'm not rubbing it in). When I first got here it was just Ricky and I and we went there a LOT!! Now we go there for Mom's Day, Dad's Day - you know all the holidays. The after that we drove around town and just puttered. We did stop in a store and Danielle tried on Prom dresses. There was one that she found - actually the 2nd one that she tried on - that was pretty. Kinda grown up, but SHE is, but I persuaded her to wait. Prom is still a couple of months away and it was only the 2nd one she tried on. We'll have to go on a trip to the mall I guess.

Then that evening Ricky and I went to the movies. We went to see Paul Blart-Mall Cop. OMGoodness, it was funny!!! I just love Kevin James anyway, he makes me laugh all the time!! Then we were going to go out for dessert but decided to bring something home instead to Mom and Danielle - so we went to Dairy Queen.

Friday Ricky surprised me with a Many Kisses Elmo doll. I just love that little guy!! And this one was perfect for Valentines! It will sit next to my Chicken Dance Elmo. Hey, some day I will have grand kids and they can play with them (well, maybe not) Ü
Ok enough is enough. On to the cards.

I already showed the card I made for Ricky, but I made another also. I was cleaning out my desk the other day and found a CD that I purchased from Diamonds Rubber Stamps. They were going out of business and they put all their stamp images on CD and I got it for something like $10.00!! I have a few of the stamps, and I thought that this was too cool of a deal to pass up so I had bought it. Like everything else I just put it away and forgot about it.
Here is the image that I printed and made a card with.
I colored the image with my watercolors and markers and sponged Real Red ink around the edges then layered that on to a piece of Pixie Pink and Real Red cs. The base card is Pixie Pink and layered with DP's from Cloud 9 and Pink Pirouette. I added some ribbon to the card, some large eyelets and the hearts were cut out of scrap and sponged with Real Red ink to give them a little definition. I computer generated the sentiment. For the inside I took a piece of Pink Pirouette and a strip of the DP from Cloud 9 with the ribbon and attached it to the card. I had the computer generated sentiment and a heart that I cut out from scrap Real Red and I was complete.
I did find the CD on sale on EBay, and they have the 2nd CD that I did not know was out. It is a little more than what I paid for it, but I love it - It might be worth it. You can print out the images in any size you want. Definitely worth the $$ you'd save buying the all the actual stamps. I think that there is over 150 images on the CD I have, the 1st one.

I needed to make a card for a friend that I have not sent to in a long time and I just wanted her to know that she's special. So I made this card:Ok, I had to show you my Elmo Ü But here's the card up close:This stamp is JavaBella, I thought that it would make a cute card. The image panel is sponged with So Saffron and layered on to a piece of So Saffron cs and I colored it in with my watercolor crayons. The base card is a textured Eggplant that I've had forever!! The DP's that I used on this card are all from SU! called Parisian Summer. I punched the upper right and lower left corners with my Friskars corner punch. I think that she'll like it!
I'll be back in a little bit to show you a funny video that a friend sent to me. If your tired of hearing about "women drivers" you'll have to see this!!
Have a great day!
Hugs,
Joani
