A few catch up posts....

Hi All,

I, truely, can't believe how busy I have been lately!  It makes no sense to me as I thought my life would be more relaxing as my children grew up, oh but NO, that is not the case!

I guess keeping busy is what keeps us moving forward just like our kids did when they were young :)

So check out the next few posts and I will finish up with what we did at our Club today.

WOW, I sure do have some catching up to do!!!

I made these cards for my club members/friends who brought me some
Home Made Spagetti Sauce.....  YUM!

I used the retired set Viola and Voila Accessories (specially, the spagetti dish).

I had fun making this but, was having a hard time figuring out how to make the sauce so I mixed some Riding Hood Red reinker with some Cyrstal Effects.  I tried to do a "controlled" dribble but that didn't work, so I let is flow and it turned out, in my mind, like spagetti sauce as messy and good as it is:

Oh by the way, as I said before I have a remiss that I didn't show my thanks earlier... since my spagetti eating family has already emptied both the LARGE jars of the most perfect spagetti sauce !!!

Hello friends... yes I am here!

Thanks so much to all of you who contacted me wondering if I fell off the face of the earth.... I DID NOT, but I did fall off the grid for a bit....

Beyond the extra long work days, my weekends have been completely booked (the days I can usually post) including a  fun trip to Lincoln City for a card making/shopping get away, an stampin' Open house in Seaside and a baby shower.... that is not to say I didn't get any stamping in I got so many cards  made and am ready to start sharing with you here.... First up are these two cards made to celebrate the soon arriving babyoming baby, one for a boy and one for a girl.  IT WAS A BOY.... CONGRATS TO MY DEAREST FRIEND FOR FIRST GRAND BABY!!!

These cards are not in order of how they were made just a sampling of what has been over the last few weeks by myself and my friends.

More soon!
