Happy Birthday, Cadence Mari! Cadie, for short, turned 2 today. It doesn't seem possible. They grow so fast. She is a doll and her Nana Cece loves her to death. We went to the park to feed the ducks and play on the playground with Haley and a new friend Mila. Then we went to Chick-fil-a for more playground time, lunch and a couple of presents. "Thank you Haley for the baby with the potty that really flushes!!!" Being a proud Nana I have to share pictures with yall. I have also included her Birthday card I made for her. I used Whisper white and Pretty in Pink and the cupcake from "Crazy for Cupcakes" I added another candle since she is 2. We are having a cupcake and Minnie Mouse themed birthday party so I stamped the "seeing spots" circles to look like pink Minnie Mouses without the bow on the background of the card. Viola! Cute card. I hope you enjoy it. Gotta go. Be a blessing to someone else and you guessed it, you will be blessed.

I made this really neat note pad tin project for a friend of mine to give as a gift. I want to show it to yall because I think it is so CUTE! My disclaimer is I am afraid to say most of the DSP and Stamp sets used in this project are retired!!!! This is bad I know (again with BAD Blogger) however, the idea can be done using current products. Sometimes I just need to use my "old favorites". A word to the wise New cattie will appear July 1st. There will be one of your favorite sets retiring ( I have no knowledge of that just guessing) I will post the retiring sets as soon as it is published, I think that will be June. If there is a set you really like you'll have time to get it before it goes to the great rubber stamp pile in Heaven. Now, look at this thing. It's a DVD tin. I covered with DSP and put a magnetic memo pad and pen on one side and a pocket with bookmark paper clip and tiny sticky notes on the other side. If you would be interested in learning to make this great gift item. You know the drill, Call or email me for details. Gotta go- "As you go by as you go, show the love of Him who loved you so." Blessings.

I do apologize for being a "Bad Blogger" I just run out of time. So please, be patient and keep coming back, I'll get better, I promise. Tommy and I just returned from 5 glorious days in
St. Augustine, FL. We took Daughter Lee, who is graduating from High School next month and our older daughter, Jen's, daughter, Cadie, with us. I am sure that is way too many comma's in that last sentence, not to mention confusing, but try to keep up. Cadie will be 2 this week. It really was a great trip and both girls were really good!. We saw old friends and enjoyed some quite time by the pool. We visited the old Spanish fort, the Castillos de San Marcos and some other historical sites. I even had fun doing some late night stamping!!! I took a very, very, very, limited supply of products and was very challenged to see what I could make with what I had. I mean -2 ink pads, Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze, that was it! it was really quite fun. Here are pictures of one of the projects I made. The basic idea can from Nancy Horn's, One Sheet Wonder Tote and card class posted on the Stampin' Up! website. Thank you Nancy! I love this idea. I didn't have all the stamps she used so I made some slight changes. On this one I used Parisian Breeze DSP( my absolute fav), Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze cardstock and ink. I feel a stamp camp coming on. Let me know if you are interested in learning to make this great gift. Gotta run. Have a great day and be a blessing to someone else, then you too will be blessed.

Well , I was thinking about the card I have to share with yall today and I do love it. Isn't it amazing how we use the same word to really mean so many different things. I love this card, it is really one of my favorites of late, but that does not compare to I love my husband, Tombo ;), or my grand babies, or even chocolate. I guess we have really over used the word love and it has been somewhat watered down in the English language. Of course at this time of year you can't help but think of real love, God's love for us, the love that lead Jesus the lamb to die for you and for me- NOW that is LOVE. So in reality, maybe I just really like this card and Chocolate, but I do LOVE Tombo Terrific and Cadie Mari who will be two in a couple of weeks. This thank you card was very simple. Riding Hood Red and Kiwi kiss cardstock with Bella Rose DSP. I used the new eyelet punch that I like a lot and kiwi kiss satin ribbon with a brad. Hope you like it too. Have a blessed Holy Easter Season and bless somebody else and you will be Blessed.
