Thinking of You

thinkingofyou

Hi everyone!!  Well, we are back safe and sound and a little more refreshed from when we left on Friday.  We were at the Sparkling Hills Resort about 1.5 hours away from here.  It’s a new facility owned by Gernot Langes-Swarovski from Austria and has 3.5 million Swarovski crystal elements throughout the resort’s design.  Check out more details with my link :)  And now onto today’s card.  It’s for Stacey’s Curtain Call Colour Challenge this week.  I was so tempted to make a Fall card, but the nasty weather we’ve been having put a stop to that.  I  picked up these sweet little kraft bags after seeing Dawn' McVey’s adorable card using one of them.  Here’s what the little bookmark looks like…it was made with Verve’s Sweet Scallop Die (which is still on sale until the end of the month…tomorrow!) and a quote from Verve’s Blue Skies set.

So on our little weekend getaway, we made a quick trip into the bigger city just next door and I did a “little” paper and ribbon therapy ;)  We also bought all our appliances for the new house we are starting to build this year!! (not at the LSS, but at an appliance store! LOL).  So it was a VERY productive trip all round.  Enjoy the last bit of the weekend.  Report card writing starts this week, so my posts will be a little scattered.  I’ll leave you with the pile of treats I came home with ;)
