Inque-ing it up!

I am in love with my Inque Botique stamps and I had been so busy lately that it had been awhile since I had gotten to use them. Last week I made sure I did though and this is what came out of it. I really really love this card!!! I have no clue who I am going to send it to or maybe I won't. Maybe it will be one of those cards you like so much that you keep it on your scrap shelf or in your card basket just to look at it every once in a while to remind yourself that you can make really cool cards.

  • STAMPS- Mini Birdi, Petals (Inque Botique)
  • PAPER- Dasher DP (Basic Grey), kraft CS
  • INK- Chocolate Chip, Walnut Distress Ink
  • OTHER- PearlEx (for bird), Cuttlebug square dot embossing folder, scalloped edge scissors, pop dots

I am soooo excited! Joe and I are getting to go away for the weekend! Its his birthday on Friday and for the past 2 years I have had a party for him at our house with his friends and a few of my sisters, but this year I wanted to take him somewhere. I really wanted to take him to Vegas but tickets alone were close to $500! Whew, maybe for our 10 year anniversary or something. So, I figured I would take him to a casino that's over on the Ohio river about an hour and a half away. He was happy that I had planned it and decided what we were doing. I am just looking forward to 1 on 1 time with him. We are leaving Friday evening and coming back Sunday evening so we won't be gone long but it will be fun!

Well, I'll be back tomorrow, hopefully with an exciting announcement!!! No, I'm not pregnant, lol.
