To Have and To Hold

My husband retired on February 1st and everything has changed.  He is home all of the time.  Now don't get me wrong, I LOVE having him home.  We are used to doing everything together and it has been nice to not have to plan everything around his work schedule.  I need to get over feeling guilty about spending time in my craft room, though.  I know when the weather is better he will be outside in his wood shop and doing other things.

Today he went to lunch with some of his retiree friends, so I had some time to myself.  I ran quickly to my craft room and created this card.


I pulled out some new sets from PTI that I haven't had time to play with yet.
I, also, wanted to get away from pinks and reds,
 so pulled out some beautiful shades of yellow with touches of orange and green.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Sending Big Bear Hugs


This is a CASE of one of Betsy Veldman's beautiful cards.  I was pressed for time and this design was very easy to mass produce.


I am loving this little bear!  The set comes with several little things he can hold in his paws and makes it perfect for many occasions.

You're Still the One

When I saw the sentiment "You're Still the One" on the MFT site, I was so excited!  My husband and I love the "Oldies" songs and years ago a group named Orleans had a hit called "You're Still the One."  I knew this would be perfect for my hubby's Valentine.


I love the Heart Art set from MFT.  The hearts remind me of conversation hearts.  I stepped away from the traditional red, pink and white and decided to go with a softer color palette.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Your kind comments are always appreciated.

You're Still the One

We've been together since way back when
Sometimes I never want to see you again
But I want you to know after all these years
You're still the one, I want whisperin' in my ear

You're still the one I want to talk to in bed
Still the one that turns my head
We're still having fun
And you're still the one

I looked at your face everyday, but I never saw it 'til I went away
When winter came, I just wanted to go
(Wanted to go)
Deep in the desert, I longed for the snow

You're still the one that makes me laugh
Still the one that's my better half
We're still having fun
And you're still the one

You're still the one that makes me strong
Still the one I want to take along 
We're still having fun
And you're still the one
(Yes, you are)

Changing, our love is going gold
Even though we grow old, it grows new

You're still the one that I love to touch
Still the one and I can't get enough
We're still having fun
And you're still the one

You're still the one who can scratch my itch
Still the one and I wouldn't switch
We're still having fun
And you're still the one

You are still the one that makes me shout
Still the one that I dream about
We're still having fun
And you're still the one

You're still the one
Yeah, still the one
We're still having fun
And you're still the one

A Spy-Tacular Birthday

 
I had been contemplating this set for months.  Then it popped up on the Simple to Spectacular segment on PTI's blog and I was sold.  I finally broke down and bought it.


I made this card for my son-in-law who will be celebrating his birthday on Valentine's Day.


I made the background with some pretty, bright colors and the sentiment stamps included in the set.

Happy Birthday Unicorn

This cute little Potbellies Unicorn is for my great-niece, Riley.


I took several pictures but couldn't get rid of the glare. 
 You get the idea, though.

The Unicorn is a new die from PTI and it is SUPER cute!
I used paper from DCWV called Glitzy Glitter to make her sparkle.
Her belly is filled with red, white & pink M & M's
On the back I added a rip strip, 
so she could get the candy out without destroying the unicorn.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Happy Retirement

Boy it seems like forever since I've posted on here. 
 I almost forgot how.......almost.  


My husband has a friend who is retiring and he likes to fish.
The only fish I have are cartoon ones, so I decided to go with a row boat.
I pulled out supplies from Gina K. Designs, Papertrey Ink and Doodlebug.
I hope he will like it!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
