Sorry I was GONE so long......
My 10th Wedding Anniversary
Time fly's when you have a FAMILY!!!!
I can't believe it's been 10 years.....I feel like we were just married yesterday.
We were married on my Grandparents 60th wedding anniversary
I would definitely say it was GOOD LUCK!!!!
So today would be my grandparents 70th wedding anniversary...WOW!!!
I hope Jason I make it that long.....

We were moving.....

Our lease was up on our house and we decided to move into an apartment to save money!! We would like to buy a house some day and down sizing was the most logical thing to do. I hate moving, it's so time consuming.My kids are doing really well at our new "apartment" or as I call it "Our HOME". Even the dogs are adjusting well. Today I unpacked my stamp room, which is in Our bedroom. I am so surprised
how GOOD it looks!! I will share pictures soon. All the boxes are unpacked and broken down!! My mom and Jason are such a big help, I don't know what I would do without them. Here is a card I wanted to share with you, please enjoy!

Blogger Challenge #12
This weeks challenge was an inspiration challenge. We were suppose to post a card and also a picture of something that inspired us. Well I love the color BLUE & BROWN so I made this card using Blue Bayou, Chocolate Chip, River Rock & Very Vanilla. I don't have a picture to post because this card actually came from my Dream. I had been wanting to use this color combo, it's been on my mind for a while now. I was stuck on how I would use these colors and on Thursday Night I dreamt about this card sketch using my color combo I was having such a hard time with.
I wish I could make copies of my dreams, but that's impossible!
I hope that some of you will try this color combo too.Please enjoy my card!!! I had a GREAT time with this Challenge.....

Fun & Fast Notes is a Great stamp set and can be used for many different occasions. I just love this bird! This card is a standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card folded long ways using Sky Paper. I stamped the Bird on whisper white card stock and layered on Really Rust used my word window punch to clip the corners. I then cut my Fall Flowers DS Paper into 2 parts measuring
