I'm practicing for our upcoming vacation to Cabo. When you read this, hubby and I, and eight of our friends will be headed to Cabo San Lucas for a week of rest, relaxation, sunshine, lounging by the pool, and eating until we puke. Well . . . maybe we won't puke, but I'm going to enjoy every single minute of our vacation! So, if you don't hear from me for a while, that's why.

Hero Arts. (Sorry, it appears that ABC Toys has sold out of this set - if you want it, drop Julie an email [firstname.lastname@example.org]. She might be able to order it in for you.) I was inspired by a card that I saw in the most recent Card Creations magazine by Carolyn King (I think it's on page 30). I loved the layout, and knew that the "Precious Baby Boy" set would work perfectly with it. I also used another Hero Arts set that is very quickly becoming one of my most favorite, go-to sets - Scalloped Borders. This will be another card that I can add to my future grandson's stash.
THIS card was picked as the "Featured Designer" card over at Our Creative Corner. They always have such fun challenges over there, and I've been stalking them for quite awhile. Finally got the courage to submit a card for one of them, and was ever so thrilled to find that they liked my card. You all should check them out, too - fun stuff, I tell ya!
I'll pre-schedule my ABC Toys & Crafts post for next Tuesday - the team has something really special planned for you all next week, so be sure and stop by to see for yourselves, especially if you're looking for ideas to make some fun and unique Valentine's Day gifts. I think there might be some prizes, but don't quote me on that! Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hasta la vista, baby!
