Our Happy Place!

My family and I love to go to Bird In Hand, PA for a relaxing couple days 2 or 3 times a year. At this time, we stayed at the Bird In Hand Family Inn.  They have a great pool and hot tub to relax in.


Here we are at one of our favorite shops, A Country Life.




I love the inspiring quotes that are found on the products they sell here.

And of course, our silly picture.  Life would be way too serious without a silly picture.

 My husband and boys love to do this trick in the pool! 
Happy New Year Everyone!

Prepared for next month!



My presents are wrapped, my cooking is done so when I saw these cute cards on the Stampin' Up! Corporate Blog this morning I knew I had to re-create these with the extra time I had this morning.  I love to keep a supply of "thank you's, birthdays" and whatever other occasion may be coming up so that I will be prepared for the month.  These cards are simple, fresh and ready for encouraging others!


I used the polka dot pattern from the Season of Style Paper Stacks cut at 5" by 1 1/4", gold foil sheets cut at 1/2" by  3" the whisper white notecards are pre-cut and measure 3 1/2" by 5." They come with envelopes, too.  I used Calypso Coral Cardstock  cut at 1/2" by 4" and Calypso Coral Ink.  I used Brights Designer Buttons and LinenThread for added embellishments.  The Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape will be available on 1/3/14.   The Stamp Set is Four You.

I used Bermuda Bay Cardstock and Bermuda Bay Ink Pad for this card in addition to the above supplies and the Brights Designer Buttons but in Island Indigo.


For this card I used Strawberry Slush Cardstock and Melon Mambo Ink and Designer button from the Brights Buttons.
