Well folks, here we are at the beginning of 2012. Can you believe it? I hope you all had an enjoyable New Years Eve. I know we did. Went to a friends house to see the New Year in and learned a very fun board game called "sequence".  Even my hubby enjoyed playing and playing games is really not his "thing".

We got all of the Christmas decorations put away, the glitter and such has been vacuumed up and I even got extra ambitious today and washed the kitchen floor. (You might have guessed that cleaning isn't my favorite thing.)

We "warehouse" shopped this morning and then went out to lunch. As we were leaving the restaurant, my hubby said he thought he had an absessed tooth. It happened all of a sudden. So... off we went to the dentist who took xrays and a CT scan (sp?), and found no absess but did find a clogged gland. I think it's one of the saliva glands. He's now on antibiotics and, because of the swelling, he reminds me of a chipmunk. Just one side though (lol).

I've been enjoying all of the blogs that I subscribe to and have found a couple of cards that I just had to make. And because they are tri-fold, I want to share them with my card-making group. So I'll be showing them how on Thursday. Here's the first card we're going to make. I liked it so well that I sent one to my daughter and son-in-law for their anniversary.

I wish I could have matched the color of the flower that I colored with copic markers closer, but... this was the best I could do. Here's a picture of the inside.

The second card was really fun to make, too. I used the Viva Pearl Pen to decorate the flap. 

This is the inside, or at least what you can see of it.

I thought this was sort of masculine. I used the Stampin' Up "The Ocean Sea" stamp set and their coordinating designer paper. 

That's it for today. You all stay safe and keep warm. We're supposed to have a deep freeze here tonight.

  1. Lovely cards. Of course, I like the fact that I got one of them. How's "hubby" doing? He all of sudden realized he had an issue???
