Whew....two days at home!!!

Hi all,

Hope you have been patient with my 'missing in action' status.
My wonderful hubby took me on a 7 day Western Carribean cruise, and we just 
got back home.  We're calling this our honeymoon, as we never had one!
We just celebrated 43 wonderful years together, so it's sort of an
overdue honeymoon :)  We had a great time - we cruised with several
couples from our Sunday School class!

Internet services 'started' at $16.00 per day on the ship, and we just felt that we 
should be enjoying the trip and each other, and did only business that was required while gone. 
Thank you all for your patience and understanding!

Now, I have two days to wash, dry, and repack my bags, as I leave for Germany on the 11th.
I'll be gone May 11-29, and will be helping DD with baby number 2, while spoiling baby #1 rotten!
DH is staying here to take care of things on the home front. This will be the longest trip I've
ever done 'solo', so send up some travel prayers for me, please!!!

I'll have internet, so hopefully, can pop in and leave some comments for you all.

Here's a fun card that I made the last time I had a 'play day' at my friend, Shirleys. 
We tried the drapery fold. She had some pretty Stampin'Up! papers that worked beautifully
for this fold.  If you haven't tried it, find a tutorial, and give it a shot. Easy, fun, and pretty

Thanks for stopping by,
Patti J.

Very nice - and yes the SU papers worked so well with this technique. Glad you had a "honeymoon" and sounds like you had a great time.

Happy belated anniversary, Patti! Sounds like a very wonderful honeymoon. Have a safe and awesome time in Germany, too!

Beautiful card, Patti! You are definitely not letting the grass grow under your feet, but isn't it fun! I'm getting wanderlust as we haven't traveled since last fall. We'll be going to the West Coast in June, so that should cure my symptoms for a while. Have a GREAT time in Germany.

Donna said...

Great card, we had a good time crafting that day. Glad you had a wonderful trip, enjoy the grandkids!

Very pretty Patti. Love that fold on the bottom. I've been seeing this fold the last couple of days! So neat and unique. It must have been so much fun on your cruise! Good for you! And now another trip! Hopefully you will have a safe trip! Enjoy baby #1 and #2... and the company of your daughter!

Well you're certainly well traveled these days Patti, I'm sure you had a ball on your cruise! Safe travels, and enjoy those baby hugs!
Almost forgot to say, that's a stunning card you created, what a great design to showcase your beautiful DPs :)

Oh how beautiful. I will have to go look for instructions on how to do this drapery fold. Looks so elegant. I'm so happy for you. It sounds like you're having a ball. Congrats on your Anniversary!
