Today's card creation! I had ordered this die and embossing set a few weeks ago and finally received it when I got home yesterday. I was so excited to try it out so I made this card for a friend of mine! I have a feeling I'll be making more because I have lots of friends who all love butterflies as much as I do! Thanks for looking!

We had the chance to visit with our daughter and son-in-law and grandpuppy this weekend - and get our first in-person "view" of our identical twin grandsons! Alison looks so cute with her "babies bump" and the whole family is looking good! (of course, I'm a bit partial!) We are so thankful to be able to be a part of the lives of our children!

How blessed we are! Decided to come home to Orlando this weekend and Bryan drove down from Tallahassee to be home too! His very special girlfriend, Lindsay, drove over last night and I took this picture of the two of them this morning, before she left. Don't they make such a cute couple? We are so blessed to have such wonderful kids!

This is the card I made today - for one of the challenges on SCS. It called for using a charm on a card. I found this ribbon and stamp both at Michael's - each was only $1! I love bargain stamping! Hope you like the card!

Here's a picture of Lenore and her creations:

What a wonderful day I had today! I had the chance to visit with my friend, Lenore, who lives here in Jacksonville, and have lunch with her, and then to share my love of stamping. I found the perfect project for us as she had never stamped before today. Well, she's hooked now! And I have another stamping buddy! She was a natural and we had so much fun as we created these 4 cards in no time! Then, it was off to the store to get a few basic supplies so that she could "practice" until we can get together again! Yahoo - little does she know that the fun has just begun.........
Thanks so much, Lenore, for putting the "Happy" in TODAY!

We had fun visiting our daughter and son-in-law this past weekend. They are expecting identical twin boys in November, so we spent the weekend helping them get ready! Since she's cleaning out craft supplies, I was the lucky recipient of lots of goodies, which I am putting to good use today!
Here are 2 of today's creations, using some "new to me" embellishments!

Cards from Saturday, 7/11 - Oh, thank Heaven

Not sure if you can tell, but I used paint strips from a home improvement store as additions to my cards! I think they add interest and they definitely add some extra color!

Please be patient as I work on building my blog. I'm pretty new to this blog building business so it might take awhile. Besides, if I have spare time, you will usually find me stamping new cards!
