Birthday Pocket Card

After a wonderful vacation last week and now back to work, I needed to make a card for my coworker's birthday. Her last day is today so it doubled as a birthday and going to miss you card.  I saw one of these on pinterest and I think my sisters made made them too.  Tags are a lot of fun to make!  The tutorial for this is on splitcoaststampers under Tutorial and search for Diagonal Double Pocket card. Finally with some nice warm weather in the northeast, I made  this a spring card with flowers, butterflies and birds!

Happy Birthday Marcine and Good Luck with your new adventure of moving to Florida!  It was a pleasure to work with you and I will miss you smiling face each day!

Cruisin Vacation

First night
Last week my husband and I with my sister, Connie and her husband Russ went on a Carnival Cruise.  The destination was Nassau and Stirrup Cay Island.  The weather was perfect and so was the company.  We had a lot of fun on and off the ship!  The name of the ship was Fascination.  The picture above is from the first night with a beautiful sunset!  It was so nice to be pampered, no dishes to do and no beds to make.  Just a lovely, lovely week. 
Pretty pool water!
Some pictures around the ship.  At night the lights under pool changed colors-so pretty!  Next to the last day we were able to jump in and have the pool all to ourselves which is pretty amazing!

The picture below was Captain's night when everyone dressed up and had pictures taken around the ship.  A lot of people out and about and listening to the band playing. A lot of people like to cruise!

Captain's night
Mark and I dressed for the occasion.  After dinner, we were waiting for a show in the Palace Showroom.

Connie and Russ enjoying the evening too! Great picture of the two of them!

Caribbean waters
We headed to Nassau and took a Catamaran boat trip to a reef to do some snorkeling.  Had to show a picture of the beautiful Caribbean water.  Just a gorgeous color of blue/teal!  On the way back to the ship we had some, what else, but rum punch!  It went down real smooth but we didn't count how many some of us had! Right Mark!

Double fisted!
Someone was having too much fun! Such a beautiful day and beautiful place!  Loved the trip and as always it is great to be home.  One more thing, I have to mention the buffet was spectacular!! Below is a picture of Maine lobster tail. It was very good but not sure it was from Maine because of the size. Check out the buffet! Need to get back on the Treadmill!  Again it is good to be home!!!

Hello Spring!

I wanted to make this scallop punch flower because I haven't made it in a while.  Such a pretty, quick card for any occasion.  I used SU scallop punch and  punched out 5 of them, sprayed them with water and crumpled them.  Wait for them to dry and just layered them on top of one another with a pretty brad in the center.  Simple but cute!
