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.

Foil paper: Recollections (for the round sequins)

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!
