Losing Days!

Man it just seems like the days are flying by around here. Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. My Dad and stepmom were here so we were seeing the sights of San Diego. Lots of neat things! We had lunch at the Rancho Bernardo Inn surrounded by fields of white roses,

we saw a sea lion and seals at the children’s pool in La Jolla, (a beach made for kids but now overtaken by the seals!)

We did a wine tasting at the Bernardo winery, (YUM!), went to Seaport Village down on the harbor and saw all the sailboats, and watched the paragliders and hangliders on the cliffs at Torrey Pines…very cool and spent a long day at the zoo where Matilda had her face right next to the glass and a cobra’s face..her comment? Hi!

I don’t think I would be saying “Hi! to a King Cobra!” That sucker was big! So I haven’t had much time to stamp lately, I have just been too exhausted! We have decided to give up cable tv after the season ends for heros and all our other favorite shows this year. We can watch most of the shows on the internet and there really just isn’t much to watch. I am hoping by watching less tv, I will get more stamping done!!! This weekend, we are taking Dad to the wild animal park and maybe the Carlsbad flower fields so we will have another busy weekend in store!

I did make a bunch of cards a while back with some of the free stuff from SaleABration and I haven’t showed it to you yet, so at least I have a little eye candy for you. Here it is, using the “Crazy for Cupcakes” set.

Pretty basic card using liquid applique to make the frosting. Cute though, huh?

Oh and here is a fantastic dessert recipe I made the other day that is so easy and yummy! Can’t beat chocolate and coffee!

Hope you are all well, I should have some sightseeing pics for you soon…Ciao for now! Deidre

I was at the Rancho Bernardo Inn a couple of years ago. My company was planning to hold a small meeting there, so I did a site visit. Beautiful!! It's also where the San Diego auditions for American Idol were held. ha ha

Cute cupcake card! Love the frosting.
