More new cards

Here are some more new cards. I love this little duck and pool. It is two stamps- I had to use a masking technique to do this and it took forever for me to figure out.

These are cards I have done this week using a card sketch and a technique challenge from Splitcoast. I love the sketch with the circle in the middle. These were fun. The other two were to use your cuttlebug folder with ink on it for the background. I think they turned out cool.

The Most Wonderful Daddy!!

Leonard "Guff" Russell
July 13, 1924 to March 14, 2004

Today is the fourth year anniversary of my dad's passing. He was a wonderful Dad!! A WWII veteran who worked with all veterans in our community helping them get pensions and to work through their demons. He was a wonderful grandfather whose grandkids could do no wrong!! He taught my siblings and I to work hard, dream, respect others, stand up for our flag and country, support our soldiers and to be honest!! I still am very lonely for my dad - It is a loneliness that sometimes overtakes my heart!!

I joined the Sisterhood

Tonight I joined the SBS Sisterhood 14 of Splitcoast Blogging Stampers. Oh what fun it will be, I will have 20 online stamping sisters!!! Check out their blogs and creations.

Been getting lots done

I got alot done this week, 5 scrapbook pages for Disney books and a few cards. I just haven't had much time to upload them here and tonight for some reason I can not upload anything so I guess you will all have to wait. We had a decent weekend so worked outside, got some wood for next winter and cleaned the flower beds and mowed the yard.
