Another Card

I hadn't made any cards for awhile and now I am on a roll. I have a lot of Close to my Heart products in my craft room and for this card I put some of it to good use. This card is made with Close to my Heart paper, inks and stamps.

Thanks for looking.

New Cards

When Two Scrapbook Friends got the Authentique collection in the store I new I was hooked on this line.Having the opportunity to work at the store and getting to unpack a lot of the inventory that comes in, I purchased the 6x6 bundle and the first two cards are my first creations using this line.

The flower is cut from a spellbinders die and the buttons are from Close To My Heart.

The card below is done with Prima pencils and again Spellbinders dies along with the arrow border punch. Love that punch.

Thanks for looking.

Mini Get Away

You know all those discount get away deals that find their way to your computer? Well one found it's way to our computer and we decided to give it a try. We took a one nighter at The Oakes at Niagara Falls this past Friday and Saturday. It was a fantastic deal. One night lodging an excellent dinner and a full breakfast. All that had to be paid was $138.00 plus tips. Excellent deal.
The view below is from our 7th floor window when we arrived Friday afternoon after visiting Niagara On The Lake my favourite place to visit.

I have never seen the Falls from this height before, other than in photos. This one is the Canadian side.

This one is the American side.

We had an excellent dinner and this is the dessert. Raspberry sherbet inside chocolate ice cream drizzled with chocolate and of course the strawberry. I am not a chocolate lover but this was delicious.

We also had a singing waitress. She would wander around the tables and sing. She was a very good . Sorry the picture is a bit dark because the lights are turned down in the resturant. The resturant is called Remingtons if you should happen to go to the Falls sometime.
