Card Day

I feel like I haven't posted a card for ages!!!! I have been making so many lately because they have been selling like hotcakes!

I started with some black and white filligree paper I got out of a wedding kit a friend regifted to me. I took a piece of scrap bright pink paper and mounted my faux lace on it, then cut around it. To cover the seam I used some pretty silk bright pink ribbon and tied a nice bow. I used a shiney silver sentiment I've had for years that says "Follow Your Heart".


This card is for the following challenges:

Dear McDonalds:
Your fries are delicious. But they suck if your emplyees leave them under the heater for an hour before giving them to you. Kinda chewy - no lie.

Dear Cold:
I hate you.

Dear My Paddy:
I really miss you right now.

Dear Mini-Wheats:
Thank you for making me think of my Dad every morning when I eat you. I love him and miss him sooooo much.

Miss. Travel McTravelson ~ Venice, Italy

After the excitement of Piza it was off to Venice, Italy for The Weavoways!!!!

We had booked our hotel while we were in Valencia and the one's right on the island were sooooo expensive. We opted to stay at a hotel called the Palladio in a tiny town 15 minutes outside of Venice, in Malcontentta. I will write the next travel post bout that place!!! (My favorite of our whole trip!)

We took a short bus ride over the water bridges to Venice. Instantly I hated it. I know that's terrible to say but the alleyways were so tiny and there were so many tourists squishing and pushing. It's like getting on and off a city train in the middle of rush hour!!! Everyone is hot and sweaty and pushing you - literally pushing you!!! I kept loosing My Paddy and we couldn't find anywhere with a table for us to eat.

We did our thing and spent a day walking around and seeing the canals. You couldn't even get a decent photo cause there was always someone in your pic or bumping you so you couldn't get a non-blurry one.

I did love the shopping because most of there stores are like markets kiosks. Paddy bought a really cool Italian Opera mask that looks like a Jester and I got a really cute Italy jacket for my nephew Logan. :)

We had planned to spend 4 whole days in Venice, but after one day neither of us wanted to go back into town. So, we spent the 4 days relaxing in Malcontentta. It was really nice and after jetting around so much, it was nice to settle and have nothing to do.

Hello 1975?

On Saturday night we decided to have a birthday party for our friend Number 5.

She invited all her friends and we had a 1975 theme going on!!! We had an absolutely awesome time! Everyone had great costumes, but Number 5's old school rollerskates where the highlight!!!!

We were very silly and took tonnes of photos!!!

I made my very first photo booth and had some moustaches and props for everyone to use! They were a hit and everyone used them all night!!! 

Happy "50th" Birthday Number 5!!!! Hope you enjoyed your bash!!!!

WE DID!!!!!!

Love Paddy & Messy

My New Garden

Our new home came with a very small amount of garden space. My Paddy dug me a HUGE space all along the back of our fence and made it work around the existing peonies and our two maple trees. My neighbor and dear friend Maryse gave me some beautiful bulbs and plants to add. I bought a couple bushes and planted some seeds too and it is looking so pretty right now, I thought I woudl share some lovely photos. :) Enjoy!

Oh so lovely...
Now here come fall...
