I am a great great Aunt

My first great great came into the world this morning about 6:15 - Miss Kayla made her appearance!! Baby and mommy are doing great and I can't wait to see them this afternoon. My niece, who is the grandma, called about 7:30 this morning to let me know. Of course I called my brother and rubbed in the great grandpa bit! lol

Caardvarks Initial Reaction

Caardvarks challenge was to use Initials - well, I was going to make cards, but then why not tag bookmarks for the girls!! It was hard to figure out how I would do just one card- so here is my adaptation of the challenge!! (I had to do these on the scanner as I can't find my camera?? Girls???)lol

Two Blog Candy Alerts

My friend Stamp Katie designs for Limelight and she led me to these two:

Go and visit Ryann's blog. Take a look at her work and while you are there sign up for her blog candy.

And. . . . . . . .

then go see Denise. I have had a blast checking out their blogs

Stamp Something's sketch for last Friday was this one. After spending days creating the 'boat' cards, I got out my new Close To My Heart Set, Treasure Life, which was September's set of the month. I love the greens and the Hollyhock colors, so I pulled them out and here is my card.
(this card has found a new home with our friends Will and Lindsay who were married 10/25!)

Sheetload of Cards for October

Here is a close up of one of the cards I made. It was from October's Sheetload of Cards I really like using their sketches and ideas. With the two new babies in the family coming (one in the next few days and one in February-both girls) I figured everyone will need girl cards.

Boxes and Cards

This is what I was working on last week. I just recently got the Scor-Pal and so I made some boxes and cards to go with them. I really like having the Scor-Pal. My friend Stamp-Katie has had hers for a while and I really was envious of it so when Diana was at our lss and Katie, Tina and I went, I got it (told dh it was my birthday present!!) Some of the cards are using the sketch from Sheetload of Cards October edition.

Baby Kayla's Thank You Notes

I am trying to use my camera instead of my scanner so bear with me!! lol These are the Thank you cards I made for my awesome niece Amanda who is due in the next few days with my great great niece Kayla.

Feeling REALLY fenced in!!

I did this card a week or so ago but then got sick. I haven't been on the computer hardly all week and have not even been in my craft room!! So, I realized I hadn't scanned some cards and this one is how I am feeling so it works great. I haven't left my house in 6 days and that was for a Dr.'s appt. Hopefully soon I will be back among the living and able to play more.
