2Sketches4You and Urban Anthology

First of all, sorry I haven't posted since last week, but I am back. I had such wonderful weekend and want to share with you. I will sum it up really quick here, as I don't want to bore you. Get ready though, as this will be a long post, as I have a lot to share, and have a lot of scrappy pictures to show you, too.

So, Friday night, we went to a fabulous restaurant, which I got a gift card to literally years ago, and since Michael and I had something to celebrate, we decided to go and have a fabulous dinner. We dressed up and headed over to Scott's Seafood. Sadly, we totally forgot to take pictures, but boy, did we have an awesome meal and night. Saturday was just a lazy day overall, but Sunday we went to Chinatown in LA and had dim sum with my friends and than we had not one, but two massages for $15 each, can you believe that deal? It was 2 hours of pure heaven, I can tell you that we are going back for more, that is for sure. Thanks Ching for telling us about these....hehehe.

And the best part, if I can say the best, because it was all awesome, but I let you decide, whether this is best or not...hehehe. Guess, what we picked up???????
This little baby
It's a gorgeous Nikon D60 DSLR with two lenses, the 18-55 mm and the 55-200 mm. Isn't it pretty? I have been wanting one of these for so long and turns out Michael loves taking nature pictures, too, so we finally got it. Needless to say, I am totally enamored by it, and I have a lot to learn, but boy, it takes great pictures even on auto settings. LOVE IT!!!!

OK, so now about about my card. Sunday, Kari, the owner of Urban Anthology while at Dim Sum surprised me with their February kit, which I was so excited about, as it is gorgeous and I will show you pictures, so you can see what I am talking about. I made two cards already with it and in this post I will share one of them, which I made for this week's 2Sketches4You sketch, which was a lot of fun with this kit. So, here is my card
All supplies here are from the February Urban Anthology kit, except for the alpha stickers, which are Making Memories. And here is the kit for your eyes. This kit, as always is packed....Has so much to offer, and take a look at those little buttons (by the way, if you click on my pictures, you can totally see the details even better), Kari actually handpicked them and they are the cutest ever!!!!!



So, if you would like to own this yummy kit, and I mean yummy kit, head on over to Urban Anthology, she has them in a very limited amount, so hurry up. And the best of it, you get all this for only $35.....I tell you, it's such a great deal!

Ok, and since I am talking about Urban Anthology, I just got the sneak peek of the March kit and that is gooooooorgeus as well, but again, I let you decide. Kari and Ching went to LA to get some unique trims and ribbons Sunday to go with the kit....can't wait to see what they will be... but for now, I spy some Cosmo Cricket and Jenni Bowlin goodies in there....yummm.

And little birdie told me that these tags from My Creative Mess etsy shop will be included as well, wow, look at these????? I can't wait to get my hands on them..


Well, that is it for now. I will be back with another post later, so hope you come back and as always, thank you for coming to visit my blog and hope you like my card.

Have a fabulous day!!! :)
