Love Is In The Air
Happy new week everyone! How has the weather been for you? Seems that so many places- in the US AND across the pond have had some strange and stormy weather over the weekend. I hope everyone got through it all OK. We had almost all rain, and very gusty high winds but thankfully no flooding or power outages in our area. I hear there was at least one confirmed tornado in Maryland- and perhaps also in Delaware- in February- unheard of! Yikes!
We got together again for a record/vinyl party with friends and our son and fiancé but I totally forgot to take pics cuz we were having so much fun! So, instead, for T Stands for Tuesday I'll share another meal from the Merion Inn in Cape May:
The last time we were in Cape May it happened to be restaurant week which we were unaware of. Several of our favorite places were completely booked that weekend:( However, we managed two seats at the bar in the Merion and had a fixed price three course dinner. It was excellent!! An arugula salad-can't remember what kind of dressing but it was really good. Our main dinner was smashed potatoes, grilled asparagus, and this chicken breast which was divine!! It was an Italian style and had some balsamic glaze over it. For dessert hubby and I both also had the chocolate pot de creme which was a perfectly manageable portion:). They serve wine in small carafes that you can self pour into your glass (you can barely see my glass on the right near the fork) and though you may not see it- my cabernet is in it. Cheers!
This is an exciting week for me as we have tickets to see Il Volo in town Tues. eve!! This will be our third time seeing them as we love them so. Then Valentine's Day Friday is also our son's birthday but we're going to celebrate at our place on Sunday. He hasn't told me what he wants me to make for dinner yet;)
Here is a card I made for him:
Products: light blue, white, brown card stock; patterned paper (Paper Studio); Labels 8 dies (Spellbinders); computer generated sentiment; Shape Sprinkles Tiny Hearts (Doodle Design Inc. - from Simon Says Stamp); Diamond Stickles Glitter Glue (Ranger). Sharing this with the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge (theme is "with love").
The new challenge for Tag Tuesday is "Spring Is In The Air" so I have this tag :
I shared the technique for the background here in this post. Tim Holtz Wildflowers die and Small Talk Stickers. Rubber stamp bee is DeNami-an oldie!
This journal page is meant for Art Journal Journal Journey (theme this month is "hearts"); and Try It On Tuesday ("Share The Love"):
On the watercolor paper in the Dina Wakley Media Journal. Image is from the Dina Wakley Collage Collective book. I cut it into the heart shape and stitched around it before gluing to the page.
Linking to Paint Party Friday too:)
I made some quick and easy Valentine cards to mail out to friends. Just using up patterned paper scraps, vintage collage sheet images. That is a bit of the envelope on the left . I stamped this heart from Magenta three times. The sentiment on the card is from Waltzingmouse Stamps.
Wishing you a happy Valentine's Day if you celebrate it, and have a super week ahead!
