Christmas is near!

Wow, is the time ever flying!  Already it is the first of December and I have just started my Christmas cards.  I am posting a few that I have completed.  I'm afraid this year I will be having to pull out the store botton cards with time flying so quickly!  I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving, I sure did!

"Red Hats" was a theme for our fun weekend at our annual weekend away!  A bunch of very talented ladies enjoyed a ton of fun and shared so many great ideas with each other.  Our annual scrap weekend was at Camp Ghormely in Naches WA.  We laughed our heads off, ate continuously, enjoyed the fresh air in the woods oh, and yes we did some scrapbooking too!
Our hearts go out to our special friend Candy who just lost her sister at a very young age.  Candy, you and your family are in our hearts and our prayers!

First thing I want to say, is my heart goes out to the families of September 11, 2001.  The years and it still hurts to know all the pain that people had and still suffering!  
Now for the fun stuff.  Wow, is time flying!  (Well, for me anyway :)  It seemed like just yesterday when we were given the exciting news that we have twins coming into our family.  Already, I am busy making "Thank You" cards for the upcoming shower in November.  We do know now, that there are twins and not triplets but still don't know if  they are boys/girls or one of each.  We should know that soon!  Since the shower is coming up so fast, I needed to get started on the cards so I decided to go with green and yellow cards.  What fun making all these cards!

Happy Birthday Ellie

Happy Birthday to our little Ellie who is growing up way toooooo fast! We will be back home in Ontario Canada for her birthday this year, now how special is that? I excited to see her and all our other wonderful grand girls!

Make It Your Day

Ok, I am trying something different here! I always give my father a serious card for father's day.
This time I am trying something different! I found a cute stamp from "sexy seniors" called "Big Daddy". So, I put it on my dad's card. I sure hope he finds in funny!

Grandpa and Grandgirls

Grandpa enjoying a walk along the beach and hunting for sand dollars with Brianne & Alyssa in the summer of 2010.

Oregon Coast

This past summer, we were so fortunate to have Alyssa & Brianne (granddaughters) visiting us from Ontario Canada. What an fantastic trip we had! We took a trip to the Oregon Coast and we had a blast playing on the beach and looking for sand dollars. All four of us enjoyed our hunt for sand dollars and found some really nice ones too! During our hunt, I took a couple of pictures that I would like to share on my blog. My blog is mostly my paper craft but I love these pictures so much that I want to share them. Hope you think they are as nice as I think they are!

Happy Birthday Alyssa

Yep, our Alyssa is growing way too fast. Alyssa was visiting us this past summer from Ontario Canada and really enjoyed coloring and making things in my craft room. I thought she would like yet another homemade card that I have done for her. This is a stamp that I just got from "Whiff of Joy" and I can see it is a stamp that I will be able to use for many occasions. Happy Birthday to our Alyssa!

Magnolia-Licious Highlites Challenge

Wow, what a real challenge it is to make a card with directions of what needs to be on the card in order for the entry. What fun also! This is "Tilda & her puppy" that I enjoy coloring so much. Magnolia stamps are so fun! I have a sister in law that just lost her Dad and has had a few years of bad luck, so this card will be going to her. Thanks for visiting my blog!
