Embrace Life Card

Hi Everybody! Just another card I made today. I'm not sure if I'm liking the color combo but I wanted to use a combo that I've never used so far.

Initially, I really didn't like this SU stamp set (Embrace Life) but you can get me to buy anything if it's on sale. But, now that I used it. . .I like it.

We're heading to Vegas next week and guess what. . . I don't have any money to play on the slot machines. I used up all my extra stash on stampin' and scrapbookin stuff. . .argghhh. I'm also on a diet so I can't pig out so what the heck am I going to do in Vegas?

We're staying at the Bellagio! Whoohoo! That is one beautiful hotel. I want to see Cirque De Soleil "O" but we'ver already seen it and WOW!!! That was one of the best shows I've ever seen. Although my DH loved it too, my DH don't want to see it again.


I guess I'll have to figure out what to do with my time. We'll probably see a show somewhere. Any recommendations? I already saw the Cirque "Ka" so don't recommend that one. That was a great show too. I wouldn't mind seeing "Carrot Top" but I'm not sure if they'll let my kids in to see his show. . .:) I heard his show is funny. I wonder if he still has a stint in Vegas. Anyway. . .I'd appreciate some recommendations. . .

Stamps: SU Embrace Life, Circle of Friendship
Paper: K&Co Designer Paper, Purple Cardstock, SU Groovy Guava

Ya know, I wasn't so crazy about this card but after seeing so many people using this is their designs, I just feel like I need to get it too. I didn't want to because I have a lot of flowers (which are hardly used) but ahh... I feel like I need this :D Great job!

I am going to be in vegas next Saturday through Wednesday!! My husband and I are taking the kids and 2 cousins this time and I can't wait for them to see everything!

I am taking my daughter and her 2 cousins to the Hannah Montana concert while my hubby and son go to the Blue Man Group. We are also going to see the Beatles Love show which my hubby has seen before and LOVED!! Then we are going to take the kids to the Excallibor to have dinner and see the show there.

On top of all of that we are going to try to hit some of the rollercoasters and rides that are on the strip!

Have fun on your trip!! I hope that you all find fun things to do!!

Maria! This card is beautiful! LOVE it! The colours are wonderful and your colouring of that flower is awesome!! Gorgeous!

After looking at this card awhile, I think the colors jump out & you see it a little differently. The colors grow on you after awhile so after looking for awhile yes I do like this combo, it's unusual & I think thats what makes it special.
Good luck in Vegas. Celine is gone so I can't suggest her, but boy did she put on a fab show, I luv'd it when I saw her...I guess cause she's my favorite singer!

Hi Maria,
I got married in Vegas 10 1/2 years ago and had a great time without spending gobs of money. I'm not much of a gambler nor is my husband. We took a bus tour out to the Hover Dam, saw a wonderful cactus garden and took a tour of Ethel M's Chocolate Factory (not a good thing on a diet but if you can make do with a sample or two, it is worth the time), we also saw a horse how at the Excalibur that had knights and such that was a lot of fun. I don't know how much has changed since we were there but I hope you have a great time!
