Little chicks

I have fallen in love with this Chick...Michelle's little chicky is so cute with the DP in the background and if you look close she has used a pretty background stamp on the pink...This ribbon is not a green that is in the cat anymore I think she said it is garden green...I hate that she keeps her ribbons for that long....makes me jealous....

Pretty Frame

I have made a frame like this before in blues and greens and it turned out well.....This frame my daughter Hailey and I made for a really good friend of  hers....and I think it is better that the one I did by myself. I think it is because the love that went into it.....I think her girlfriend really liked it!! Of course Hailey made a matching card...Beautiful....

a special card

Kathy is home from Hawaii now...Thank goodness.... I hate being the one in charge of the family when she is gone!! Michelle is shaking her head at me for saying that!!! Ok so is Kathy...So I am not good with out my Mom and Dad!!! I need to be able to bounce things off and I like to get her opinion about ...well.... almost everything...Not that I listen to 98% of it but it is nice to have someone there that cares about me and my family as much as I do....Again, Michelle is shaking her head and now she is asking if she is chopped liver!!!  Enough of this sillyness...
This is a card for my Aunt who is going through a bit of a time right now and needed a bit of a lift and some big family support....Michelle did a great job...I love these colors together and the detail is amazing....

How the Boys measure up!!

Michelle made these for the boys.... She will put them in their rooms when they have finished painting them...Soon right Nick?? It might be hard to see but they are nice and bright and totally removable so if they every move Michelle will be able to take them with her!! Nice that she thinks they will be over 6 feet!!! I think they might get close to that!!!

Easter is coming.... yes it is!!!

I don't have many Easter stamps but I want to stay ahead of the pack and get some cards made a bit ahead of time for once!!! I always seem to be a tiny bit behind on cards for the major holidays and feel like I have to catch up ...So here we are...way ahead and ready for the bunny!! GO EASTER!!! Ok... maybe not that ready but getting there!!! I am in love with this card .....the darker ribbon looks a bit funky but I promise it matches perfectly...

Ok.... I have finally gotten over myself and have decided that I need to grow.... saying that and actually doing it are two different things......what??? you ask... do I mean???? Yep you guessed it....I am trying clear stamps....AAAAHHHH!!!! Yes and I have to say I love them and I see my future!!! YA.... because the blocks are clear!!! HA!!!  I am trying to be very cool and calm about it ...I am trying not to be soooo excited because Michelle and Kathy have not grown up like I have and I don't want to rub it in!! See I am growing!!! the next few days will be about the clear block stamping I am doing!! Back to my new little friend I call... Cheep!!
