Ladies Night - Handmade Cards

My Sunday School class had Ladies Night recently, and we handmade cards to send out to members of our class.  We all brought supplies we had at home (scrapbook paper, scissors, stickers, paper cutters, stamps, etc.) and got to work!

Here are the cards that I made:

"A Little Hello"

"Psalm 52:8"
 "Thinking Of You"

"Damask Stripes"

Here are some of the other cute cards that were made by the other ladies:

"Count the Happies"


"Colorful Stripes"

New Car! Range Rover Sport Supercharged

We bought a new car for me this week! I'm SO excited about it! I've been driving the same car since I was 16, a 2000 Ford Mustang. I'll even post a picture of Old Faithful lol.  That Mustang got me through high school, college, grad school, and my first year of marriage.

Here she is:

I was sad to see it go, but we sold it to a sweet 16 yr old who I know will love it as much as I did.

We wanted an SUV so it would be kid friendly and decided to go with a Range Rover Sport.  My husband wanted it to be quick, so he found one that was supercharged. :)

It has dual temperature controls & heated seats (front and back!).

I just like the gear shifter :)

Leather interior!

Rear entertainment for our future children!

It has a sunroof! 

V8 engine, supercharged!

Some of the other awesome features are:
-Rain sensing windshield wipers
-power washers for the headlights
-Premium navigation system w/4X4 info system
-550-watt Harman/Kardon LOGIC7 audio system-inc: AM/FM stereo, 6-disc CD changer, (14) speakers
-Personal telephone integration system
-20" aluminum alloy wheels
-Cooler box in the center console

So far I LOVE it! It's so nice having 4 doors and so much space.  I have no complaints so far and would recommend this SUV to anyone in the market for one.

Hologram Effect Nail Polish by Layla

After searching for hologram nail polish for weeks, a store has finally decided to carry some! Ulta recently started carrying Layla Hologram Effect nail polish.  It's a little pricey, $15.50 a bottle, but I think it is totally worth it!  I went with Mercury Twilight, but there are 8 different colors to choose from.

The directions are easy.  I took a flyer from the store which I show you below. You buff and polish your natural nails, then apply a few coats.  I ended up doing 5 coats to get it even.

The picture below is in the shade.

The rest of the shots are in full sun.

It even looks great from far away!

NOTE: The polish start chipping FAST! I'm talking after about 20 minutes.  I decided to give it another shot using Orly Bonder Rubberized Base Coat and so far it's held up 2 days.  I will say that it doesn't go on quite as smooth with a base coat, but it's necessary if you want your holo mani to last more than 30 minutes.
