My Favorite Things....and a busy weekend!

A couple of weeks ago I went scrappin with the girls. I love doing that because then we can swap images. Sharon over at Dew Drop In Designs has many of the My Favorite Things stamps. I stamped and colored several of these images. If you haven't noticed, there is a trend here with this paper. It is KI Memories.....AGAIN! I am REALLY trying not to buy a bunch of new stamps right now or paper, or anything else until I use up some of my stuff. My stash will definitely outlive me! LOL! Anyway, many moons ago I had gone to a specialty stamp store and purchased these colored crystal glazes. They come in tubes and dry glossy and raised, just like crystal effects. I'm not sure you can seen it in the picture, but the puddle is glossy and "wet" looking, as well as the raindrops. I added rhinestones to the bottom of her raincoat, and some pretty ribbon.
My hubby was in charge of planning our "Date Night" this past Saturday. I know he had been looking into a movie or a restaurant around the house. Turns out I was completely wrong! He didn't tell me until we were close enough for me to figure it out. He drove downtown.....which NEVER happens, cuz he hates downtown! He took me to Dave & Busters. Which was kind of strange because it is an arcade for grownups. Ya know, liquor, pizza, and video games.......A LOT of video games. Now, I am not really a video kind of gal.........so why did he take me there? It was opening night of their new comedy club. When we were dating we loved going to comedy clubs! There was dinner, drinks, and 2 really funny comedians! It was such a fun evening! I am so glad that after almost 15 years of marriage, he still take the time to plan evenings with me.........and leave occasional perverted comments on my blog! LOL! : ) Hope everyone had a great weekend!

You make the most beautiful cards! I just bought some crystal glaze and have no idea what to do with it:0

Glad you had fun on your date night. We have those too, but usually it's a matter of sitting around saying "what do you want to do?" "I don't know, what do you want to do?". We really need to come up with a plan:).
