Blow Out Your Candles D.I.V.A.S challenge

Hi ya! Happy Sunday. What a wonderfully relaxing day it has been today. I did have to run out in the rain to pick up my daughter from a sleepover but, when we got home my handsome hubs was making breakfast! So we ate then I took a wee nap on the couch! LOVE THAT. Rainy, lazy day and your hubs makes breakfast...perfect! Last night we had a wonderful romantic evening at home, that we don't get often enough I made Beef French Onion Soup in the crock pot that I got from Cursive T. (She has some really simple and delicious meals.) AND we watched a movie together, now THAT does not happen often enough. I don't think I would call the movie romantic but it was wonderful to spend that time together alone. We watch The Hangover! Holy cow I laughed my booty OFF!!
Switching gears, I made this card for my blogging group Designing D.I.V.A.S where we are to uses real or faux stitching. The layout is from a scrapbook page in Scrapbook Trends Magazine. January issue. The pretty patterned paper is from my Secret Sister Cindy it is BasicGrey Euphoria. Thanks girly!!! I also used the Cricut cart Home Decor for the flourish (I know you guys see that a lot on my cards!) the sentiment is from Creative Clear Stamps. It cracks me up because it is pretty little card then BAM! an innocent little insult. HA. Okay, laundry to do (always) thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!
Cheers!

Sounds like you had a great evening in, sounds fun to me, so does that soup. We are big soup fans here at my house. Your card is so cute. I swear I am going to learn how to use my sewing machine! LOVE that sentiment.

I love that flourish. I can see why you would use it a lot. Breakfast sounds really good..maybe I'll have it for dinner...

Love the fresh colors, the stitching, AND the well loved flourish!! I don't have that cart, so I'm just living vicariously through you! :>

Your Sunday sounds similiar to mine....except I wasn't enjoying it as much as the nap was due to some virus I've managed to pick up....blech. We've had the Championships on and I enjoyed both games, in and out of delirium. But, itsn't it such a treat when Hubby makes breakfast??!! I loved it! :>

Hope you have a fantastic week, Julie! :>

Your card is darling Julie! I love your layout, stitching and the classy look.

Hangover... !!! Definitely not a romantic movie. My sister sent it to us as one of our Christmas gifts and we did chuckle a bit.
Sending hugs, Peggy
