i love you like a love song

I woke up with Selena Gomez's song "I love you like a love song" stuck in my head. The song is so addicting...listen to it once and its in your head for days. Had a busy President's Day. Built a gate, cut & stacked firewood and then hubby took us to Guadalajara's for dinner.

The boys after cutting firewood got a special treat "Big Pops". Oh how happy they were.

Finished Stampin 411 challenge card...I like the way it turned out. The star didn't come out exactly as I wanted but it is still very pretty. I used Sizzix Star die cut with some cardboard, applied E6000 to the cardboard and then sprinkled with Stampin Up glass glitter. Love that stuff!

Love this card...works perfectly for all the sailing men in my life. In fact we have friends who are buying a boat right now so they will be receiving this card of course on our maiden voyage. Paper Players Challenge

Had a great day shopping on Sunday with my husband. Here are a couple of fun items I picked up. My husband was wandering around using the umbrella all day...so funny. The dolls are creepy and cute at the same time....my hubby looked at me like I was completely crazy for buying them.


  1. How great to be able to make a card for the maiden voyage of your friends boat! Love the colors, the little touch of orange is unexpected and really lifts the colors. So glad you joined the Paper Players this week
