Do you ever think about all the choices we have in life?   If someone said to you they were going to give you Waterfront property, what would that mean to you?   What would your Waterfront vision be?  A Mountain Stream, Luscious Waterfall, Rushing River, Crystal Lake, Ocean Beach front, or a simple Retention Pond in a neighborhood?  

Life is full of choices and the new Waterfront Stamp set gives you so many!  I have created two samples: One mountain scene and one beach scene.   Again sticking with my simple card ideas these are quick and easy, yet look so pretty!

Only 5 More days of Trivia. Have you been able to answer the questions?  I know some of you have looked at the blog but have not responded!  Don’t miss out!  Email with your guess!

It’s so great that you can simply change a few colors or change the orientation and you get another great card!

Fun Fact – When making choices in life sometimes they have to do with those that become our life long Valentine.  So today’s fun fact is that 28 years ago TODAY …  John and I had our first official date.  It was at a Sweetheart Ball and we were married 1 year and 6 months later on August 10th.   For that reason we don’t usually celebrate Valentine’s Day like others. Instead we Celebrate our Special Day!
