Sunday Share February 17, 2013

Today's Sunday Share is all about my hubby. Today is his 36th birthday. We spent our weekend celebrating his birthday with family. His mom came up for a visit and she brought an ice cream cake and we all went to eat at El Vaquero's in Moberly, Steve's favorite Mexican restaurant - they have a Chili Rellano to die for.  And their service is top notch. Every time we have gone out to eat there our food is hot, fresh and oh so fast!  We always bring home a to-go box. Surprisingly enough, Avah enjoyed it very much - and she is a picky eater.

Steve's mom had surgery before Christmas so we hadn't been able to celebrate Christmas with her yet - so our Saturday was pretty busy. She brought gifts from Christmas and we had a late Christmas gift exchange. It's really strange getting gifts on someone elses' birthday....

I made a card for Steve using last week's color scheme and the new Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I paired our in-colors from last week with the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack. That stack is a perfect match for all of our 2012-2014 in-colors. Last but certainly not least, I pulled out my Sale-A-Bration goodies - Pretty Petites Stamp Set and the Petite Curly Label Punch to embellish the card. He loved the card and I thought it turned out pretty good too.

So what do you think of the lighting for the photograph of Steve's card? I used the light box that my husband helped me build last week. First time ever using this light box. We used one in my college photography class that we built from PVC pipe - it was pretty cool then. I do so love my new light box but I need to pick up new light bulbs as the ones I have are not quite right.

Thanks for joining me this week for my Sunday Share. Hope you have a blessed week where ever you may be and have some fun stamping! I know I am going to.

This week's color scheme is bringing back a bit of Valentine's but with a Spring twist. Our colors this week are Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit and Gumball Green. Look for several cards using these colors to appear on my blog this week. I am excited to be getting ready for Spring!

Disclaimer:  I am a new Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  I am working on replacing all my craft supplies with only Stampin' Up! product, but I will occasionally use some of my non-SU stash. Bare with me as I work to replenish my stash with only SU product. I will be highlighting new products as they come in and I will always point out great alternatives to my non-SU product that are Stampin' Up!. Thanks for understanding.
