Good Morning!

Today I am going to my Dad's to spend some time with him, so my dear sis can go to church. It will be good to see him again as it has been a couple of weeks since I last saw him.

This morning as I sit at my computer, I am feeling very thankful for my Dad. I am very lucky to have had a man with a great sense of humor. I can remember all the fun times we used to have as a kid growing up. Some of them was hilarious! I won't bore you with the details, you will have to trust me on this. LOL.

Dad, everytime I think of you, I thank Jesus. You have helped mold me into the person I am today. Love you Dad.

May your dad be blessed.

New cards

I have made some cards from Close To My Heart's Veranda paper package. Love the papers! Using Close To My Heart Cards and Envelopes, I can make more than 50 cards. Depending on how I cut the papers I could make up to 130 or more cards per paper pack! Now that is a good thing. LOL. I really like to make the most out of my money.

With these cards I cut the paper at 5 1/4" by 4" and got 6 fronts out of one 12" by 12" sheet of Background and Texture paper. I liked the pattern of the paper so I stamped my greetings, added some diecuts (using Spellbinders dies), or adding the new Just Blooms Paper Flowers Spring Blossom ($7.95 for 105 flowers, and butterflies). Of course I had to add some bling with my Crystal Stickles (love my bling).

These are simple but nice looking.

I plan on making more to give away for goodie bags at the crops I attend.

Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the blogosphere.

Happy New Year!

Here it is 10 days into the new year and this is my first post! I have been busy designing new workshops and putting together new card kits for my classes. Thought I had better take some time to say hi here.

I hope everyone had a safe and fun-filled Christmas and ringing in the new year. I was the second one in my household to poop out and go to bed. LOL. Destiny fell asleep before she could see the new year in too, and Les actually fell asleep before the the clock struck midnight. What an exciting bunch we are here. LOl.

I have some new things I need to take pictures of to show you. Close to My Heart has come out with some pretty papers this time and I want to take photos when it is daylight out of the layouts, cards and other items I have created with them.

Have a great new year and may all your days be blessed.
