Fisherman Happy Birthday Dad

My father in law enjoys fishing so much that I decided to make him a Fisherman Birthday Card. Once again, I have used Mo's Digital Pencil stamp. Love her stamps!

Close Up Fisherman

This is a close up of my copic coloring of the Fisherman.

Wood is so different to do and kind of fun. I always seem to get a different color of wood after every attempt I make. This boat was used with E29, E25, E35 & E31.

Ok, I tried something new this year. I made a few calendars this year and sent them out instead of Christmas Cards. I put magnetic on the back so it can sit on a fridge or file cabinet. It was really fun making these and I am open to what everyone thinks. Would you be happy if you got one of these in your mail box or would you think, "oh no, not another item for the fridge" :)

Warm Wishes

Yep, another Christmas card! I think I have made about 40 cards this Christmas season. It must because the cold weather and snow came early and just got in feeling like Christmas.

Christmas Gift Card

I decided this year I was going to give my long distant Granddaughters gift cards. So, I made some bifold cards and put pockets inside to hold the gift cards. I made 5 of them today alone. So easy and so much fun to do!

It was a very "Priceless" time for me to be able to sit and watch Brianne sleep in my arms after she danced her night away at her Mother's wedding! This moment is a time that I will cherish for life!

Confirmation Day

This picutre was fun to do! With the awsome template of "La France" that I purchased at the Portland Oregon Craft Show, it made it easier to put together and fun!

Snow Fun

Recently I have the honor of joining a group of wonderful ladies to a weekend of scrapbooking, fun and tons of laughter! I even managed to get 12 pages done for my grand girls scrap books! I hope to post some pictures of the "PEEPS" soon! This is my Brianne just last year having fun in the snow.

Christmas Star

Yep, another Christmas Card finished! Soon I will have all my cards done and ready to be mailed. I really enjoy sending Christmas Cards out as much as receving them.... "hint, hint".

Happy Birthday Brown Owl

My Daughter is a "Brown Owl" in Windsor Ontario for a group of little Brownies and enjoys this very much. The Brownie uniforms are navy blue and orange. Her birthday is coming and thought this would be a great birthday card for her. I can't wait to see what she thinks of this idea! Happy Birthday Jen!

Christmas Door

Well here I am again in only October and making Christmas cards! This is just not like me but I have really been feeling like it is time for Christmas. This is a new product that I have tried using calling "Flower Soft". I put glitter sprinkles on top of the door and on the step. It pops out so good when you are looking at the card itself and not just a picture.

Happy Fall Birthday Dad

I always seem to struggle to make a masculine card. I LOVE fall and thought I would combine my love for fall with my love for my Dad. Happy Birthday to a awsome Dad who means so much to me! It's safe to put this on my blog even though Dad's birthday ins't until Oct. 1st, he doesn't use the internet or computer :)

"Puppy Christmas"

Today for some reason I was just in the mood to make a couple of Christmas cards. This is not like me at all but I have to say, I did enjoy making them! It just seems like as soon as the kids go back to school, Christmas is just around the corner.

Happy Birthday Dear Haylie

Already, it is our little baby Haylie's second birthday. Though I know she won't understand me making this card for her as she is so young, I still wanted to do it for her. I wish so much that I were with her for her birthday but someday that will happen. Love to our little Haylie!

"Note To Say....."

My dear friend is going through some rough times in her life right now, and I wanted to let her know that I was thinking about her. Things will get better and life will come back to normal again real soon! Hang in there my friend!

"Dear Mom"

My Mom lives in Windsor Ontario and had to wait almost a week past Mother's Day to get her card in the mail. My crazy busy schedule put me a little behind and it takes SO long to get a card from the State of Washington to Windsor, Ontario which didn't help! My "Dear Mom" is SO special to me that I wanted to make this special card for her and only wished it would have arrived before Mom's Day instead of after. Happy belated Mother's Day to my special Mom!

Happy Mother's Day

Just a little special card for my long distant Mother In Law. 
She always appreciates the time and work that is put into a card for her.
It is safe to put this on line before Mother's Day since I know she isn't an Internet Mom.

"Tons of Hugs" to Karsyn

Today, my coworker and friend's little 4 year old daughter is having heart surgery.  My thoughts, prayers and love go to little Karsyn, Mommy & Daddy (Mike & Tracey) along with the family to help Karsyn get through this.  Daddy says Karsyn is a strong little girl and we can't wait to see her all better!

"Shh, I know a lil' secret"

My girlfriend (Melody) never wants anyone to know it is her birthday.  Several times in the past, I have not said much on her birthday but, not this year!  However, I did keep it a "lil' secret" just like she wants it to be.  Happy Birthday Melody!

It's Just Not Fair!

"It's Just Not Fair" that I couldn't spend time with my special friend on her birthday.

I sent her this card knowing she would understand how I would have loved to spend a day with her but due to the miles apart, that just wasn't going to happen.  Happy Birthday Carol!

"Happy 98th Birthday"

My wonderful grandmother turned 98 years old! Though he mind does not allow her to remember me, I have so many wonderful memories of my Grandmother. I just made her this special card and sent it to her in Windsor Ontario Canada. Like I said, poor old tired Grandma can't recall who I am but I still enjoyed making this card just for my Grandmother
