New York New York!!!

Today, I just have a few quick pictures from New York!  I hope you enjoy them!  We definitely enjoyed being there!  I think all three of us (my mom, sister-in-law and myself) had silly grins on our faces then entire time we were in NYC!  We had so much fun!

John Lennon Imagine Mosaic in Central Park

being silly atop the ROCK

True Tourists!!!  I was laughing so hard at them (mom and SIL) right then...we were in Central Park!

Snow People all over the Park - this is my Sister in Law and myself!

Central Park in the winter is gorgeous!

It's Rupert!

Silly Grins!

Minnie and Mickey in NYC?!?!?

NYC - pretty quiet from up here!

Yep, it's the Empire State Building!

This ice rink is so small up close!

The ROCK - we were all the way up there!

Getting ready for our TV debut - apparently, my brother loves Jenna Wolf...who knew?!?!?

Ahhh.....can you feel it??? LOVE IS IN THE AIR....

YAY!  Another post for me today!  Happy Valentine's Day everyone!  It is truly one of my most favorite days!  I usually take a vacation this week too - you know for some Lisa time - clean, craft, relax, dr's appts - that kind of stuff.  This year is no different!  I am on vacation!  :)  Today, I want to share with you some of the heart day cards I made for my husband and little man.  I left several of them around the house this morning for them to find!  I reserved a few for later today as well!  I hope you like what you see and even find some creative inspiration!  If you do, please become a follower and leave me a comment.  I love to hear what you guys think!  Thanks!

Here is the outside of 2 cards I left out this morning.  I used Pink By Design Love Always stamp sets and some K&Company paper as well as red stickles!  Martha Stewart border punch....

Another Pink By Design Love Always Stamp and my Imaginisce I-Rock to add a little bling!

You make life sweeter sentiment by Pink By Design - Love Always and some yummy Divine Twine also from PBD!  I used my Imaginisce I-rock again and iridescent stickles this time!

This one is from the PBD Be Mine stamp set - it says "You've got my heart on a string."  It's hard to see in the picture as it is under the white ribbon but up close it looks pretty cool!

This card is made from Martha Stewart papers.  The sewing machine is from Nifty Fifties Cricut cartridge!  I had some random string and a button laying around (anyone who knows me, knows I have no clue where to even begin with sting and a button) and thought they added a nice touch!

And on the inside, I used the Pink By Design "Sew in Love" stamp from Be Mine to make a background.  I cut the Sew Happy Together picture out of a larger K&Company piece of paper and used my We R Memory Keepers SEWeasy and pink floss to do the stitching - first time I've used it - pretty easy to use - I just need to work on straight lines!

This one just might be my favorites!  DCWV papers for the cat and path, random specialty sheet for the background, Pink By Design Be Mine sentiment stamp and my cricut - used cricut lite furry friends cartridge!  Isn't she cute?!  I love her!
 Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you can come back soon!  Remember, please if you like what you see, become a follower!  I hope you all have a great heart day!

Calendar for My Girl

For Christmas, I told my best girl all I want is for her to choose at least one day out of each month and block out some time for us!  It can be lunch, coffee, a bottle of wine, time for name it...anything goes!  Along with this request, I made her calendar (which she still hasn't seen) to help her remember!  ;)  Here's a few pics!

The Cover

I love Nascar's commercial....WHO DOESN'T LOVE, LOVE?  I love, love!

some have mats for pics others don't....

I like this jack-o-lantern!

Happy Turkey Day

So you get the idea....just a fun little project from me to my bestie!  Happy Crafting!
