Perfectly Perfect

This was a very cool card. Emily was very bored today and decided to break out the acrylic paints and paint everything. We did tatoo's, landscapes, houses, and at the end she did the half card smooshes. I have them all over the house. (after telling her to calm down with the paints) almost like she is posessed. Anyways. She made me a swatch of the bold brights and I was working on a card for my neighbor. They are having a 60th bday party for him today. Suprise!! this should be fun. He has no clue either. We have the hole party here at our house and then he has to go pick his son up an our before the party. Just enough time to set up and wait for the big moment. Oh that reminds me have to charge the camera batteries.... anyways. what a beauty.

Helen's Mother's day card... Part II

I made this card for Bry's Mom for Mother's day. I wasn't sure what the end result was going to be. I found a box of embellishments that had a whole pile of dust on and said that I am sure I can come up with something cool. I found buttons and old earrings which was missing the mate. and playing with different techniques and just a great time playing.

Have an Awesome Mother's Day

My daughter Emily made this card for her grandmother this Mother's day. I do have to say that she is very talented and very critical of her work. I was working on my mother's day card for my husbands mother. I will show you after this entry. Anyways, Eme worked very hard on her card. Using some of the same embellies as I used on Bryan's Mom's card. She is so adorable. She wrote in the inside: Dear Grammy, I hope you have a awesome Mother's day. PS: Tell Poppa he' working to hard! Love Emily with lots of love and and then she drew pictures of her and Grammy in the inside... Oh so cute!

Graduation Time Iza comin!

Our best man at our wedding... I can't believe the time has come that he is graduating college. My gosh! He was just a little boy when we got hitched.
