Surprise, for Me!

I just had to let you all know what a wonderful husband I have.  I was working diligently down here in the dungeon on my February kit for all of you when I heard the doorbell ring.  I knew that the mail had already come and FedEx had even dropped something off that I was waiting for.  To my surprise, my dh called me and said that I had some mail.  So of course, I went upstairs and there sat an FTD box.  i have NEVER received anything from FTD before but I knew what it meant.  Of course, I opened that box immediately, and lo and behold, this is what I found:

Of course they weren’t in the vase, but I quickly got them there!!  I have never, ever received 2 dozen roses before in my entire life!  I am so excited!!  This man, who does not like Valentine’s day, knows that I like it and always finds a way to surprise me even though he says it’s not for Valentines Day.  It really doesn’t matter, though, does it?

Here are a couple more shots of my lovely flowers.

I probably should have cropped these, but I haven’t bothered yet.  I just love these beautiful flowers.  My dh knows that roses are my faves, too!!

I will have a surprise of sorts for you on Monday, I hope.  I’m almost done my newest kit.  It is entitled “A Time to Love” and is just as big as my other kits.   It’s not your usual Valentine colors, though.  Here’s a preview of the colors.

The surprise for you is that this is not a mini kit at all.  It’s a full fledged kit with 40 papers, over 110 elements and a full alpha and I’m not even finished.  I don’t have a lot to add, just a few elements.

I’m also hoping to have some other news to share with you later this week.  Stay tuned.

I’m shutting down for the night.  Have a great evening and see you back here tomorrow!

At the moment, my store is set to be viewed only by those that I have invited. You will not be allowed to view my store without permission from me and I am not granting permission at this time. I’m having some difficulty setting up all the buttons and I may have some other news soon that may change the status of my store. But more on that later, so stay tuned!


On Order — an update

I apologize for not having any freebies for you for quite some time.  My goal was to have a kit ready for you or almost ready for you by now.  But with the problems that my computer has been having, I haven’t been able to work on anything.  However, I do have good news.

My new chip is on order and should be here on Tuesday.  That will double the RAM that I currently have on my computer taking it back up to where it was before the problem.  I realized, as I was getting ready to order the chip, that my computer can only take a maximum of 1 gig of RAM.  So, that will have to do until I can get another computer.  However, I worked with 1 gig in the past and can do so again.  I hope to be back at designing on Tuesday afternoon.  I can’t promise when I’ll have a freebie for you, but one will be forthcoming, I promise!

Thanks for hanging in there with me.  In the meantime, send me your layouts so that I can share them with others.  Thanks.
