Sicily and Made 2 Cards

So today I decided to go to Sicily Italy.....aaaahhhhhhh....so warm and sunny. Do you see me in that boat???? We are having cheese and crackers a little fruit and water. So relaxing. Don't you just love these minute vacations and they don't cost a single penny. Yep, we are rich when it comes to taking vacations. We can go any place our heart desires on the internet via Pinterest. Check out my boards if you like, I have lots of stuff there, go to: http://www.pinterest.com/louisellen/ (Sorry, the link button is not working for some reason.)
Ummmm...............still relaxing, I don't want to leave. Is this what Heaven will be like?????? Blue skies, water, sun and perfect weather conditions. Yes!!!!!!
Thought I would post a few cards I made last night. I got the idea for these cards from another blogger, her name is Frenchie. She took acrylic blocks and used them to stamp with. So I tried it and "Waa-Laa" (as she always says) I got this rather neat effect. Then I used a stamp using the same effect on the Anniversary card. I rather like the way it turned out. Here is Frenchies address: http://www.frenchiestamps.com If you are looking for "Stampin Up" she is a dealer. (Sorry, the link button is not working for some reason)

I bought the chandalier stamp at Archivers for 75% off. Debated as to if I should buy it. Had seen it around alot but never had the urge to buy it. But, at 75% off, it is part of my collection now, and I am glad I bought it. It's very elegant, I think. My next project with this stamp will be stamping on pages from an old gospel hymnal song book. I have seen examples on Etsy and rather like the effect.

Well you all have a great day and keep looking up. Winter is almost over in a few weeks for some of you. For others, hang on for an explosive Spring!!!!! Why I used that phrase, I don't know. Cheers ~ Louise

I'm enjoying the vacations with you. Glad I could join you. IT means some kind of technical person and IP is the internet connection you have. I had to ask for clarification as I didn't know either. We had an IT person at work that I knew worked on our computers. I am able to post today so that's a step in the right direction!

I hope there is room for me too on your boat! Love your mini vacations - they don't cost a penny - love it!

My MIL gushed over the Valentine's card we sent her - it was the heart one that had all the ribbons in it - she loved it - thanks again!
