Baby card ...

My co-worker in Australia is having a baby, so I thought it would be nice to make him a card from the team.  Initially, I was going to bring it with me to Australia in June; however, I didn't take the trip since I wasn't feeling 100%.  I thought of circulating the card throughout the team, which means ... Montreal, Salt Lake City, Perth, and Melbourne.  Unfortunately, there wasn't enough time, so I got the team to send it their messages ... it didn't turn out too bad. 

I really love this little hedgehog ... such a cutie!  I love making a card with the same character stamped throughout the card :)

It actually looks like they signed it ... amazing what you could do with computer these days, huh? :)  The 2 empty boxes were for co-workers to sign since I didn't get their text in time.

More space ...

Sorry for going MIA ... it's been rather busy at work and been too tired to post anything.  Let's see ... what can I share?  Oh, about 3 weekends ago, hubbie and I took a trip to Ikea to get a CD/DVD bookcase for The Paper Room.  It's a nice addition to the room giving me more storage space ... just when you thought nothing else could fit in here, there's always a way ;)

Within an hour of putting it up, I reorganized and filled it up :)  Hubbie was impressed ... ok, it was more like disbelief!

Where does the time go?

Hubbie and I celebrated our 10-year wedding anniversary a couple of days ago!! 

Where does the time go ... hubbie usually replies "out west" when I ask that question ... I'd give him a "that's not what I mean" look and he'll reply "Wha?  It's true ... it goes west."  That's one of the things I love about him ... he makes me laugh ... guess what I actually mean is I married one silly guy!

Here's the card I made ... yup that's it ... just a simple heart with a message.  It's been so hectic at work I haven't had time to make a proper card ... actually, my brain was so tired.  I cut out this heart with my Quickutz machine since I wanted to use it in the card I was going to make.  Well, I sat there for a good 30 minutes staring at this heart ... once it hit midnight I realized I was just too tired.  I decided to give him "my heart and love again" ... yeah, kind of corny I know.  I actually stuck the letters in the morning right before I gave it to him ...

Hubbie liked it ... he thought it was simple and straight to the point.  He wish he had thought of that ... I guess that would have been the one thing he would feel comfortable doing in my paper room ... no stamping or colouring required :)
