Oh no, the day did not end at The Ice Cream Shoppe.  We went on to the Ellenton Outlet Mall.  The guys guarded the bikes while the three girls stimulated the economy.  I will tell you the Mall was packed.  We better start saving...Millons, Billons, and Trillons are going to come due.  I am sure sooner than later.

Card display

Card display at the Ice Cream Shoppe, Anna Marie, FL.    We should probably add to our motto:  No buffet or ice cream shoppe too far.

Picture Perfect

After breakfast, some of us decided to take a side trip to enjoy the day.  We left New Port Richey and biked down to Anna Marie Island.  We crossed the Sunshine Skyway out of St. Petersburg into Bradenton and out to the island.  Picture perfect.  Barb, Pete, Rollie, me, Tony, Don and scrapping buddy.  Cindy and I are plotting our tracks to the treasure hunt this weekend.  If you are wondering about the treasure hunt.  Go to Tampa Bay Treasure  This is the third year.  We visit 12 scrapbooking stores spend $5 (LOL) do a make and take get the treasure map stamped you have about a week or so to accomplish this.  See details at mentioned web-site.

Lining up in formation

Yesterday morning at The Countryside Mall.  Our motorcycle club, The Blue Knights met for our weekly breakfast ride.  The restaurant is chosen by the number of people that show up.  We had a large turnout, approximately twenty six bikes.  So off to the buffet (our motto: No Buffet to far) for breakfast.  We do call ahead and warn them.  We went to Barnhill's in New Port Richey.

My Brain on Stamps

So many stamps, so little time.

Cards, brainstorming for card designs

I see card ideas in everything I look at.  Would this be a cute Happy Valentine Night card?  Oh well, there is next year.  Maybe I could make one early.  If it happens I will post it.

Valentine Candy

After a day at Mount Dora we stopped at Russell Stover Outlet!  I said "I'll wait in the car."  NOT.  Anyway,  I thought this was a good Kodak moment.   I wonder how many Zumba classes it would take?  How many hours would it take to consume?  I love chocolate.  One can dream.

Celebrating February

Out to dinner for my birthday, an Italian restaurant in Palm Harbor.  Wosh, there goes the birthday hair.  The hair was a mess but the food was great!

LaPosh Beauty (the one on the left)

My nurse friend, Peg came to work the day before my birthday with the cutest haircut and color.  I  was like...oh who did your hair?  I called Debbie at LaPosh and she worked me in.

Cardmaking Crop Friday Night

A folder favorite, I make alot of these.  An 8.5 x11 piece of cardstock scored in half on the 11" side.  2.25" score on the other side.  Cut a small triangle to enable the fold for pocket.  Tape with Red tape on outside edges of pockets (regular tape will not hold cards and envelopes).
