Light and Romantic

Well I am going to try and post a little more often, because I have a ton of projects that I have been working on and can’t wait to share them!!

But first a quick funny from Matty, my resident comedienne! Matty is really getting into music. She has all the songs on the radio memorized, who the artist is, and whether they are an old or new “rock star.” Her favorite right now is Adam Lambert’s “What do you want from me?” When an old song comes on, she gets the 411 on it immediately. She is back there singing Pat Benetar, Rob Thomas, Kings of Leon, you name it! Well, the other day she was getting frustrated because we couldn’t find a station playing music, so she says to me, “C’mon Mom can’t you find something light and romantic??” I mean seriously, I about busted a gut! Where does she get this stuff?? Matty Moo, I do love you girl…romantic…she doesn’t even know what that means!!

Last weekend we were invited to our friend Thatcher’s 2nd Birthday Party at the miniature railroad in Balboa Park. Well, Stampin’ Up used to have a great looking vintage train stamp set so I borrowed it from a fellow Rubba Sista (my fun group of demonstrator friends here in San Diego…Hey Girls!!) that I knew had it; and this is the card that I came up with….I have to say I thought it was fabulous!! (YILM!) Click on the photo to make them larger and see the detail...there is a lot of texture going on with the card.
