I FINALLY got to stamp today!

This card is one I started last week for the SCS sketch challenge.. but.. didn't get to finish it until today!!  It's kind of been a crazy week... and I'm afraid it's only going to get worse before it gets better.  I've started my FINAL class for my Master's Degree.. and this one is the BEAST.  It's my capstone class, and it will take a LOT of my time.. so for the next EIGHT agonizing weeks.. I will be trying to get through this last class! UGH!  However... when I'm done... i'm DONE!  So.. I will be posting WAY more than I have been these last couple of months...
  NOW... on to the cards that I made today!!
Like I said.. this one is for the Splitcoaststampers Wednesday sketch challenge #269..

I thought I would dig out a stamp set that I don't get to play with very often.... So, Cheep Talk got the dust blew off of it tonight.  The DSP is called Sweet Pea from the Occasions mini.. and there is just a MULTITUDE of different papers to pick from. Of course, I also had to play with the Scallop Trim Border punch.. which is free.. YEP... you saw that right.. FREE!  For every $50 order of ANY SU! products in the current catalogs you can get a FREE Sale-a-bration set.  So.. HURRY this offer is only good until March 31.  Don't WAIT!!!!

Here's a list of supplies:
Cheep Talk #113204
Sending Love Epoxy Brads - Chocolate Chip #117272

I do have some more cards to post this week... so... stay tuned!!
Until next time... happy stampin'

SUPER-DUPER EXCITING NEWS!!!!

There's....  a WEDDING in my future!!  YAY!!! 
So.. (picture this...) me and Leo are coming back from taking Jaimee to meet her Dad... and we're deciding where to go for dinner...  and we stopped at THE MOST romantic Italian restaurant in Downingtown. (I had thought that this place was a Japanese restaurant.. i'm NOT sure where I got THAT idea from!  So.. we walk in and the place looks like it right off of the streets of Italy!  simply GORGEOUS!!

After we order our drinks, Leo looks at me from across the table... puts this tiny black fuzzy box on the table, and slides it over to my side.. and I was Sooooooo excited!! I opened it up and just SQUEALED!  The waitress was really cute.. because she came back with our drink order.. and she said.. "WHAT DID I MISS?"  I said.. "I guess you just missed the proposal!"  She said.. "OH THIS calls for a bottle of wine!!"  So.. we ordered some YUMMMMMY champagne, and toasted to our future!!

And.... here's the RING!

It's just sooooooooo beautiful!!
(heehee.. I had to get a manicure to show it off!!)

So.. this all happened on Friday night... and Here is a BEAUTIFUL engagement card from my stamping friend Janet!
  This is JUST SOooooo pretty!!




This card is absolutly STUNNING!!!!
THANKS! Janet
I LOVE it!!

Hugs to all!!
