Can furniture be too comfortable?

One more post for today.  I purchased a new living room set.  It's a brown, micro-suede sectional and I love how it looks in my living room.  My other furniture was hand-me-down from my parents, and it was about 30 years old and even with recovering was very warn and dirty.  Of course two years of love from my puppy didn't help that!  Anyway, it was time to make a change.  Now of course I want to change some of the pictures, maybe add a rug and update the colors.  But, this is the biggest change. 

The only problem is that it's so comfortable, I have a hard time leaving it to do anything productive! :-)  Good thing my dog insists on getting up and out from time to time.  ;-)

New Wheels!

Ok...I haven't posted any new creations lately because I have been busy looking for a few larger purchases.  I now have a new car!  It's a Toyota Rav4, and has tons of room.  Plus, it's comfy for both people and furry friends.  :-)  I have been a loyal Saturn owner for the past almost 20 years, but with all of the uncertaintly I had to go with a different brand.  Plus, I really liked this Rav4 better than the Vue, which surprised me.  I had planned to get a Vue as mey next car.  Anyway, here is a pic for your viewing pleasure!

Just One More Case!!!

This time I copied Betsy Veldman's cute Damask Design cards in the Papertrey Ink Forum.  I changed up the colors so that I could use some My Mind's Eye patterned paper from the Laundry Line.  The first card I made was full A2 size, but the 2nd card was note card size.  I hope you enjoy them!

More Case'ing of Beautiful Cards!

This time I copied some of Melissa Phillip's beautiful cards in the PTI forum.  I copied the template for this one, just changed up the colors a bit and used a few less embellishments for the A2 size card.  Then I made the little 3x3 note card out of the stamped and patterned paper leftovers.  Enjoy!

Playing with New PTI Stamps

Last time I got together with Tiffany and Janie, I made a few more cards.  I decided to copy Dawn McVey's cute card set that she posted.  Darn it...her cards are going to force me to purchase the polka-dots set!  Anyway, I mostly copied her cards except I used Raspberry Fizz and Hibiscus Burst instead of Pure Poppy and Berry Sorbet.  I have been on a pink kick lately, which is unusual for me.  I can't wear pink, so I guess I'm just creating with it instead.  Hope you like these!
