For 9-11-2001... I remember...

I cannot believe it's nine years...

I saw a card posted on a friend's Facebook wall and knew I had to try and recreate it. It's pretty close although her's had a "We won't forget" saying and I only have the "remember" stamp. It works though.

Bethany doing some "projects"

Beth loves to do "projects" in my office... with me or along side of me/ I had bought the foam dragonfly kit a few weeks ago and put it aside for just the right time... That time was tonight. She loved it. And it turned out great. When it's all dry tomorrow, we will hot glue a magnet to the back so we can use every day on the fridge.

And nothing like some good ol' fashioned cut and paste... Some construction paper, markers, glue stick and she is having so much fun (and making a big mess but that's okay).

Been busy stamping... just not posting (until now!)

There's been a lot of talk on a stamping group I belong to about using a sewing machine for stitching/paper piercing on cards. So I dug mine out of the back of the cabinet, put in four new batteries and created this card.

Bought a pack of these images and had to try Flower Soft for the first time... I have a bunch of different colors but wasn't inspired until this afternoon.

Paper Birdhouse

It's been a while since my last post but I've been creating quite a bit. All of my Christmas cards have been done for a while now...

And after a few trials and errors... I finally got it! This paper birdhouse stands 3 inches tall and 2 inches wide and deep. Thanks to Tamarra C for emailing me and answering some questions I had on this.
