A Fabulous Day.....

My husband treated me to a wonderful day yesterday.  First, we visited the company I retired from for a classic car show.  It made me feel really warm and fuzzy to realize so many people remembered and missed me.  As I do them.  I know they don't read my blog but I wanted to especially thank Hoisan Kim, Wen Ye, Carl Hergart (who owes me an e-mail), Darrin Johnston, Bett, Russ, and Devin (who owes me a lunch).  You guys made me feel really special.  And then, he took me to see Snow White and the Huntsman.  Wow!  Am I the only person in the world who didn't know who Chris Hemsworth is?  And when critics say 'visually stunning', I now know what they mean.  Some marvelous special effects and the only similarity between the Disney Snow White and this one is birds helped both.  After the movie, he took me to Scrapadoodle, our local stamping and scrapping store.  I had my gift certificate from my birthday in hand.  I got a new larger Fiskars cutter, two really cute Memory Box dies (the sea turtles), ordered the sea turtle border which is just precious and will go so beautifully with the new GinaK set I ordered which features fish and turtles and purchased a pair of the tweezers that grasp from the side (I've been looking for those for ages).  As if that weren't a fabulous day, he took me to dinner at The Famous City Bistro which is a small restaurant that features famous food from famous cities - as in:  Shrimp PoBoys from New Orleans, Memphis Pulled Pork BBQ (to die for), Kansas City Smoked Brisket - well, you get the idea.  By the time we finally got home, I was stuffed and I was a seriously happy camper.  And the best part was, I spent the day with my very favorite person in the whole world.

I love my husband to distraction and the bestest thing about him is he's my bestest friend.  After all of our years together, he still makes me laugh all the time.  I can't think of anybody I'd rather be with.  So, this card kind of reflects how I feel about him.  The stamps are from both Papertrey and Cornish Heritage Farms, the sentiment is unknown.  The copic colors are:  B0000, 0, V91, V93, V95, YG05, YG03.  I stamped the flowers twice and selectively cut out parts of the second one and layered them with foam tape.  I thought it was strange that PTI would feature these flowers with the jar and no stems but I used them anyway.  If I use this combo again, I'll add stems.


  1. This is GORGEOUS Cindy!! I love how you added the dimension to the flowers and that bow is awesome! LOVE LOVE LOVE!! P.S.
