Two Roads Diverged in a Wood

Good morning!!! Well, we're back from our little vacation to the big city (Vancouver, BC). We had a fabulous time, but more on that at the end of the post :) Today's card is full of the yummy goodies purchased on our trip :) New paper, new flower, new embossing folder and a new to me Verve stamp that had yet to be inked. I've always loved this sentiment and even wrote a paper on it in first year English way back when... What's funny about this is that Mercy has declared Thursday, Verve day :) LOL So this card is perfect to post there today :) I wish you could see it, but the bottom of the kraft card base is embossed with the Argyle embossing folder. I really need to find a way to have embossing photograph better.

Okay...more on our trip...here's a photo of all the luscious paper and stamps and embossing folders I picked up. I had a mission to find a corner chomper and finally did on our way out of town at a GREAT scrapbooking store in Langley, BC, called Precious Memories. Incredible selection of new product which can be tricky in Canada. I was a happy little stamper in there and couldn't resist showing my published cards to the ladies who worked there. They had a stack of the February CARDS on sale for 14.99 :)

On our second day in Vancouver, we walked all over down town and over to the Olympic cauldron waiting patiently to be relit for the Paralympics that start on Friday. It looks kind of bare without the flame, doesn't it?


Here's a fun picture Tony took of us...we laughed because we could hardly see the cauldron in the photo, but it's because I had the zoom on from the last photo.


Here's the redo of it and the "kiss" shot we always like to do...but I started laughing :) It was so good to get away and sleep in and eat treats and just hang out. That's all for today...I need to reorganize the studio a bit :) Have a lovely day....oh, and if you haven't entered yet, check out my blog candy until March 17th :)

The pictures of your hubby and you are too cute. And it looks like you brought home a little treasure trove with you. So much fun paper! The card is gorgeous, too. I love the colors on the dp!

As to my Verve purchases, I got 3 plain janes (the verse you saw, Happy Birthday, and Neh. 8:10). I also got Big Wish. I love the little suns in it. :)
