Black & White is Spectacular!

I got together with a dear friend the other day and we created all day long....now that's what I call a super fun day! One of the cards that I created was a CASE from the fabulous Dawn Olchefske
Her creativity is wonderful ~ I love popping in on her and I know that you'll enjoy your time there as well ~ so what are you waiting for...go have a peek!

I needed an anniversary card for some dear friends of ours and Dawn's card was just screaming at me...
pick me, pick me...oh how I enjoyed creating this card!

Here is a picture of my CASE of the card that was inspired by Dawn ~ thanks Dawn!!!


Please ignore my crooked border along the bottom....oh how did I do that and I was using my
Stamp-a-mig????  I thought I was lined up properly ~ obviously NOT!!!


I loved this so much ~ I'm actually going to teach this to my girls...I know they'll go crazy with delight as they put their card together! I'm going to pull out most of my sentiments that will fit in the large oval punch and let them all decide what they want to stamp! Oh how I love my 'job'!

I'll end with one of the latest pictures of our darling Owen and big brother Seth!



Thanks so much for stopping by today ~ I hope you have a wonderful day ~
~ Blessings ~

No Card...just a bit of Bragging!

I'm looking very forward to my club class tonight ~ with my card classes scaled way back in order to help care for the needs of my wonderful in laws, I needed to rethink my schedule and do some major revamping! so I haven't had a class in a month and can't wait to spend time with my friends this evening :-)

But in the mean time, I'd love to share this with you ~ our son Marc was a guest on 100 Huntely Street and I'd love for you to have a listen and be blessed. Marc is a wonderful young man with a real heart for others and the Lord ~  we are so proud of him and the rest of our family ~ we are so blessed! Here's a picture of Dean and our gang this past Christmas ~ four grandsons and lovin' it!

Mojo Monday 228 and a Birthday Song!

I need a birthday card for my brother in law.   He has such a beautiful tenor voice and moves me to tears as he sings.  I knew that I wanted to use musical notes on his birthday card and this sketch by Mary Fish was perfect. I found this challenge on the Mojo Monday blog. Thanks so much Mary and DT ~ love your challenges and it was so fun to play along!

No Stampin ~ but lots of Knitting!

Well I was really hoping to have some stampin' time this week, but it ended up being 6 days in the hospital ~ I had to rush my father-in-law into emergency after a routine check up ~
So my week consisted of visiting with my mother-in-law (really struggled with leaving her alone) and then bringing her up to see dad every day and then visiting with both of them...so...no stampin' for this girl...but knit, wow, did I knit...here's a shot of a hat that I knit for our grandson Isaac, this one was too small for him, so I whipped up another one and it fit him beautifully!



I should have taken a picture of Isaac with his hat on so you could see how adorable this looks on a childs head! So now I own a smaller version of the same hat....hmmmmm...maybe I should sell some of my creations...I seem to be knitting more than card creating...oh how it hurts to say that! I also knit two adorable baby beanies, but I haven't taken a picture of those yet...I will post them, hopefully some time this weekend, be sure to stop by and have a look!

I have a class on Monday night and I can't wait to see my girlfriends and just play! I guess I'd better tidy and reorganize my very messy card studio! Once I get down there and get some music playing, I have a blast cleaning my corner!

Thanks so much for stopping by today ~ I hope you enjoy this little knitting peek ~ if you are interested in this child's hat, let me know ~ head circumference is approx 16" and would fit a 6 to 12 month child!
