What a short and lovely weekend! Too short! Hubs and I enjoyed our alone time together and dinner out on Saturday night was excellent! The last time we went to dinner was last November! Seriously! We had grilled Caesar salads to start with. They cut the heart of Romain lettuce in half and grill the flat side real quick, for just a bit of flavor. It's the best Caesar salad I ever had! I had scallops with lemon grass risotto and Dan had lamb chops with brussel sprouts! Mmmm! The scallops are cooked to perfection! Seared on the outside and so soft inside! Risotto was out of this world! Dessert was to die for too! Dan had creme brulee and I had carrot cake...oh how I love carrot cake and when it's made at a fancy shmancy restaurant, you close your eyes and savor all the mingling flavors of cinnamon, raisins and cream cheese frosting! I really must stop now before I drive you and me both insane! ;)

Shall we talk crafts now? I broke down and ordered just a few goodies from Two Peas in a Bucket that included a 6x6 pad of My Mind's Eye paper called Follow Your Heart, one of the Echo Park This & That collections and an assortment of buttons and brads. I had a chance to play with some and created this card.

Oh how pretty these papers are! I love the soft colors along with the diagonal stripes and polka dot combination! The pretty wood button is from Prima Marketing.

I'm still on the tag kick! And letter dies which are from Papertrey Ink. Now I want the capital letters and numbers. I know they would get a ton of use since I can't get enough of this lowercase set!

Here's an even closer look at my layered goodies...vintage buttons, butterfly, ticket stub, paper pennants.

I've been doing a lot of playing around in between DT assignments resulting in some interesting cards...some that I really this one. I love how it all came together!

Thanks for coming by! Hope your Monday is not too shabby!

Sounds like a fabulous weekend! Your dinners sound uh-mazing! So glad you were able to get out and enjoy yourselves. Your card is fabulous. SO love those MME goodies. You combo of stripes and polka dots is right up my alley. Love what you've been doing with the tags and die cut letters, too.
