Well .... it's PHOENIX, Arizona!!!! Yay! I am suuuuper excited. I love warm weather and this will be perfect for my family. No need to learn how to drive in the snow - lol. Now I just need to work out extra hard - bikini weather 365 days/year!
On another note ... sorry, still no card - I've been slammed this week with bunch of personal stuff, stress, etc. - but I will try to get some done soon (PROMISE!!!), besides I should make about 10 that I need ASAP, few thank yous and birthdays and baby cards. Just need few more hours in my day - or no sleep...
I hope everyone is having as great week as I am!
Can't stop smiling :)

Well, I don't want you to think I fell of the Earth.... lol. We are patiently waiting, well, skip the patiently, for our match day. I am stressed out of my mind! We'll find out on Monday if we've "matched" and Thursday where we "matched". I can't sleep, so I am cranky, my mojo has left the house. Sorry ladies. However, I've been catching up on my Project Life (while waiting in the carpool lane for my daughter). I have also designed few things on Photoshop, been thinking about few things - like preparing few tutorials, making few different things for my Etsy (right now completely empty), etc. My brain is on overload.

Yay! I am sorry for the yelling, but I am so excited! LoL! My Whiff of Joy Stamps have finally arrived! Yay yay Yay!
And they are goooorgeous. Make sure you get yours!
Anywhoo, I couldn't wait to ink them up, but which one to choose - tough decision. Well, this little girl would work the best with my new Graphic 45 papers, so I gave it a go. The cardstock is Bazzill Basics (Paolo Verde ? - don't remember) & peach-y colored paper of unknown origin :)
The only embellishments I used are Pearls from Michaels, Buttons from Archiver's & Lace from JoAnn. The flowers are handcut from the DP. I added A LOT of Star Dust Stickles. Also, the papers are sewn with my sewing machine. The borderpunch is from EK Success. And before I forget, the sentiment stamp is by Cloud 9 (I think).
Oh, Gosh! Can hardly wait to use the other ones. They are all just soooo stinkin' cute!
The Front View
Also, on a personal level - we will find out where we will be moving in May in 2 weeks (exactly). My hubby will be starting residency as Internal Medicine Doc and I can't wait to find out where we will match. We've got some great pre-match offers, but we would LOOOOOVE to go to Salt Lake City (not only for the faaaabulous scrapbooking stores), because his mom lives in Park City and the hospital is absolutely one of the top in the Country. So, please, keep us in your prayers & thoughts.
