Warmest Wishes

Happy Thursday stampers, scrappers & crafters!
I am lagging on my blogging in preparation of my trip to Kauai Sunday. It is really something how much there is to do just to leave my little life for a week! Kennel, medication refills, doctor stuff, pedicure, find bathing suit, exctra clean guest room add nice aroma candle re make the bed with beautiful 500 TC sheets (for my BFF) health food sealed/bagged items for condo etc... I do believe after I get my hair done tomorrow I am finished with the prep! Thank goodness, it is wearing me out, and and I haven't even left yet! No worries, I am so laying on the beach the first day and doing nothing except snorkeling and eating! Sounds good to me! A sunset massage is on the menu too! Ahhhhh.....
I want to give a special thank you to Marlou, Angel, Allison, Samm and Alex and anyone else I may have missed, for their wonderful awards they have honored me with! I am not very good about playing these tags, but I do appreciate them more than you know! You are all so special to me! Back at you great blogging friends! (smiles) MERCI!

I'm longing for you

Happy Wednesday stampers, scrappers & crafters!
Are we having fun yet? Have you been bathing suit shopping lately? What an experience that is! LOL! I go for the takini type of suits, and it is so hard for me to find one that the top fits and the bottom fits too! You can of course buy them as separates for over $100.00, but I just can't seem to justify that! So today I shall search again and pick up the snorkel and fins set at Costco. I am a Pisces true to form, I am such a fish and love being in the water! I could snorkel all day! Kauai has some great reefs and places to see the sea turtles and many beautiful fish. Can you tell I am just a wee bit looking forward to this getaway to paradise?
Now my giraffe card for today! This is my first giraffe stamp and I must say it is so cute from Gina K. I partially embossed the Swiss Dots CB folder on either side of the card stock and stamped the giraffe in the middle. I got this partial use of the CB idea from Beate, thanks Beate!
Supplies: CS-Papertrey Inc. - Apricot Appeal-SU! -PP-Glitter Spring pack-JoAnn's-Stamps-Gina K- Ink-Chocolate Chip SU! Flower & brad-MM-ribbon-LSS. Dimensionals under giraffe image. Prismacolored pencils, Copic marker, blender pen.
I'm off to do some errands for my trip, so I can be finished with the running around ahead of time! LOL!
Have a wonderful day, I hope the sun is shining where you are! Thanks for stopping by, I'll be back soon! I will have to blurf about later! (wink) Deb

Fabulous RAK from Carol

Happy Sunday stampers, scrappers & crafters!

I didn't go by the mail box yesterday, so Lobie and I ventured on up today on our daily walk. Much to my surprise was an envie to me from Carol (over at crazy for crafting, my links never work)! I couldn't stand it, I had to open right away! As I started back down the hill, I peeled it open and pulled out the cutest darn card ever! OMG! This card has torn layered edges for the beach and water and sea. The penguin hula gal stamp is cut out and popped with dimensionals. The darling ribbon has vacation stamped on it! The card is well wishes for my Kauai trip, which I leave for next Sunday! Thank you so very much dear Carol! Aloha baby!
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Be back soon and thanks for stopping by! Deb

A little blue wagon for today

Happy Friday stampers, scrappers & crafters!

Alas, the end of quite a week if I do say so! After the airline drama it got even better! Just kidding! It got worse! My DH Pete was injured and required a hand surgeon to remove a large piece of wood that lodged up on the backside of his hand! OH DEAR! His hand is recovering nicely I am pleased to say, it was wrapped up like the Michelin tire man! Yesterday it was re wrapped and it only goes to his elbow now! What a scene! There was a drain in and stitches and yuckieness! The doctor said had the piece of wood gone a milometer further in, it would have it a nerve and an artery could have been hit! Thank God his angels were with my poor dear!
Pete is in great spirits today and is on the mend! (big smiles)!
So like I said, quite a week indeed!
Nevertheless, card making goes on! I did another wagon just because I love my new wagon so much it makes me happy! I thought I would do a bunch with different sentiments and send them as note card gifts. I have never done a box for note cards, I would love to give it a go!
The details are the same for this card as my previous wagon, except the polka dot paper and ribbon. Not certainly where the paper is from, ribbon is from Michael's like usual! Merci stamp is SU! Ink-Versafine-Oynyx black.
Have a terrific weekend! I am certainly on the Kauai countdown now! One week from Sunday, ALOHA BABY! Thanks for visiting, be back soon! Deb
