It's Nolan's 3rd Birthday

I'll be going to my favorite "almost 3 year old's" birthday party in a couple of weeks. So, I used the Mojo Monday sketch to make his birthday card. I'm still not comfortable sharing my work, but I'm going to post it here anyway...I'm seriously hoping this blog-thing forces me to stretch my comfort zone in SO many ways.

I used the Close To My Heart Tinkerin' paper and the only stamp used was Solo's 3. Still working on the inside...I think I'll wait until tomorrow for that! Nothing worse than being tired and ruining your work because you didn't know when to quit!

I also made this one...not crazy about it...but what the heck...I'll share this one too.

Girls Weekend at the Cabin

I recently had the opportunity to spend three days with my BFF and her sister-in-law at a wonderful cabin in Twain Harte, CA. We went with only two agenda items -- have fun, and make cards. And boy, did we make cards. Here are some pictures of our work. Most everything is Close To My Heart, as I was doing the leading, but there is a little of this and a little of that thrown in as well.

We stayed up until all hours of the morning, and only slept for a very short time before we were up and at it again! I can't wait to do this again!

Hope you enjoy seeing what the three of us made!

A little neighborhood goldfinch!

This little guy was hanging outside my window a few weeks ago.
I thought it would be ok to use him to practice posting pictures!

I've finally caved!

I had no idea how much work you all put into your blogs! I've hopped from this one to that one, enjoying everything I've come across. Now, I'm creating my own blog...after much effort to NOT have one and OHMYGAWD...this is HARD. So many decisions and now I have to re-learn HTML -- it's been way too many years since I managed a website...I'm completely out of date. So, until I get comfortable with this process please excuse the "out of the box" style.
