Alekzandr's 1st Birthday

It's hard to believe that my grandson is going to be ONE in a few weeks!  He is just the most precious little guy EVER!  And he's walking  everywhere...has been for about 3 weeks!  They refer to him sometimes as "Little Bear" so I thought this image was perfect for him!  It had 2 candles on top, but I erased one in Silhouette Studio!

Alekzandr's 1st Valentine Card

OMGoodness my last post was in July!  I have been making cards, just haven't taken the time to post them.  This card is for my precious grandson who is 9 1/2 months old already!  We are going to visit him (and his parents) this weekend.  They live 3 hours from us, so we only get to see him about every 3 weeks and I hate it!  We did get to have lunch with them a couple weeks ago and this is one of the MANY pictures we took!

PIper's 3rd Birthday

I hope everyone had a fabulous 4th of July!  Our daughter, son in law, and grandpup (Indi) came to celebrate with us!  Our SIL did all the grilling and then we enjoyed swimming in the pool.  Indi learned to jump off the diving board for her ball! 

My card today is for our great niece's 3rd birthday!  She is REALLY into horses and unicorns, so I thought this image would be PERFECT for her and I love shaker cards! My inspiration came from this card on Pinterest.

Alekzandr's 1st Easter


Our 1st grandchild is due by the 12th of April, so of course he has to have a 1st Easter card!  My daughter and I spent last weekend with them (they live 3 hours from us) and had a fabulous time!  My daughter took some gorgeous maternity pictures of them, Monday we toured the hospital maternity ward, and that afternoon we went to her sonogram appointment!  What an AWESOME experience that was!  I can hardly wait to meet him!
