Happy Birthday Chris


Happy Tuesday!  I hope everyone seeing this on the East Coast made it through the Hurricane okay.  The only issue I had was electricity.  I lost it at 10:30 AM Sunday and didn't get it back until 6:30 PM.  It was a dark, dreary day so it was difficult to get anything else done.  I decided to start organizing my ribbons.  A big task but since I was without electricity for so long I did make a dent in it.

Today we have a really fun challenge at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations.  We want you to decorate the inside of a card.  I decided to use Maude from Art Impressions.  I had bought the large Maude at one of the conventions and then won the little Maude.  I thought both of them would be perfect for this challenge.  I plan on sending this to my friend Chris for her Birthday. She will love the saying on the inside of the card.

Back to School

Good Morning!  Can you believe Summer is almost over?  Here in Massachusetts the kids go back to school in about a couple of weeks.   Personally, I am looking forward to Fall.  It has been a hot summer and I would like a little cool, crisp air.

Since the kids are going Back to School we thought this would be a perfect theme this week at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations.  I had bought this Lilly of the Valley stamp earlier but had not had a chance to use it.  I thought this would be a cute and different back to School card for someone going into Nursery School or Kindergarten.
I this this bear is adorable.

Happy Birthday Nicole

Happy Wednesday!  My Nieces Birthday was a couple weeks ago and this is the card I made her.  I can't believe she is 30 years old.  I feel ancient!!  I have been so busy lately I haven't had a chance to post it.  She loves Pink, lace, and pearls so they all had to be incorporated into the card, not that it was hard to do.   When I bought this paper from Bearly Mine Nicole was the first person I thought of so I knew this was the paper I would be using on her card.  I didn't know what do do with the horse so I glittered it.  I thought it came out nice.
