Around the yard!

All around the yard things are growing.
Our baby birds in the Witch-hazel tree
getting bigger every day
the veggie patch is finally taking off.
What a miracle, after all the rain we had the last few weeks.

The Daisy got PUBLISHED!

What an amazing surprise I found in my mailbox this week.
Yes and I did the jig all the way to my front door.
The kids got a little embarrassed
and thought their mom lost it.
But I was and still am on cloud 9!
One of my cards got published in
the Jun/Jul 2011 issue of
"Stampers' Sampler",
a Stampington & Company publication.
If you have the magazine I'm on page 65,
the card is called "Bloom".
Isn't it exiting?

Happy Father's Day!

Another vintage card,
this one is for my Dad on
Father's Day.
I just recently started using old
vintage photographs in my cards.
After printing them I age them with
sandpaper and ink to make them look more authentic.

The Vintage Collection!

What a busy time it's been!
Crazy at work with our upcoming move
in to our new building, yard and ball season starting,
it's been insane.
I hardly had any time to blog.
Sorry everyone!
But I managed to be a little creative.

This was my Mothers Day Card for my Mom this year.
I tried something new, stamping on material,
it worked out very well.

This Birthday Card was for my son's girlfriend,
she loves taking photographs and is studying
to become a professional photographer.
I did some sewing with my little Singer Pixie on this card
and I really like how a few stitches can set of a card
to a very artful creation.
