Two Hip Hop Cards

Two Hip Hop cards for you again this week. This first one was for a "snow" challenge:

And this one was for a challenge to make a square card:

Our anniversary is tomorrow (7 years), so we went out to dinner last night. We decided to splurge because of the year we had, so we went to Lola. It was amazing! Best meal I EVER had! I had heard of Lola when Michael Symon was on the Iron Chef America contest, and they were in the paper again a few weeks ago. My mother-in-law brought it up at dinner that I would like to go there, and my husband just looked up and said "I already made reservations." I was floored and SO excited! Here is what we ate: beef cheek peirogi for appetizer, he had duck and I had squab for entrees, and our sides were Lola fries and wild mushrooms. For dessert we had warm apple crisp with caramel ice cream. Delicious! Even the take home boxes were really cool!
And our wonderful friends babysat for us. Thank you, guys!
Thanks for stopping by, don't call me, I'll be watching the Ohio St./Michigan game. Go Bucks!
