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!

Robin's Birthday


It's been about a month since I posted a card. We have a lot going on in our household...My hubby retired in December, our FIRST grandbaby (a boy) is due in April, and our daughter is getting married in June!  A VERY exciting and busy time for my family!  I am still card making for family and close friends, just not many for challenges. Today's card is for my childhood best friends birthday!  I just love this image and think she will too!

Becky's Birthday Card


Hi Blogland friends!  It's been almost 5 months since I've been on here!  I sure have enjoyed the break and SO much has happened!  My daughter got engaged this summer while we were on vacation in the Bahamas!  Their wedding is June 13, 2019!  My husband decided to take early retirement...his last day of work is December 3, 2018!  And even more exciting, my son and daughter in law are expecting our first grandchild in April!  We found out this weekend it's a BOY!!  I'm still on cloud nine:)

On to my card!  My daughter's birthday is on Halloween and she loves wine, so I chose JJ Wine from Bugaboo Stamps (my inspiration came from Dawn's card found here).  I colored her with copics, black wink of stella on the polk a dots, and glossy accents for her glasses, wine glass, and bottle.  The layout is for Stella Says Sketch #617 (I turned it sideways).  I printed and cut out her favorite wine...Barefoot Pinot Grigio for the wine label and the sentiment is computer generated.  I cut the bubbles out on my cameo, orange marmalade distress ink, gems from Hobby Lobby, DP by Martha Stewart Halloween pad and CS from The Paper Studio.
