Valentine Card



Products Used~ CTMH CS, More to Adore Level 1 Papers, All my Love SS, Ribbon, Chocolate Ink ~ SU Border Scallop Punch, Rhinestones,  Ripple Scissors, Foam Dots.

I was playing around yesterday and came up with this card.
This Paper Kit {More to Adore}  is still available through CTMH.  I believe it's in the  2010 Product Review Book. Which I call  the "Overflow Book"  : )   What they can't get in the current "Close to my Heart"  Catalogs they stick in there. With the possibility that some products may retire.
Anyhoo, not a whole lot going on,  had breakfast with my friend Nichole this morning. What a sweet gal! I have a few errands to run and then I  help out at my kids school. 1 hot lunch and 2 recesses. So i best get movin. Thanks so much for stoppin by. Keep warm!
Blessings!

Have a great day!

Pig Tails & ER

Products Used~ CTMH CS & Topstitch Lever 2 Papers, Ric Rac, Tag Punch, Ink Desert Sand~ Ribbon/ Fabric Thicker Letters, Pig Tails.... Hobby Lobby

What a title for a post....I couldn't wait to  get pictures of my granddaughter's with pig tails in.  Cailyn's hair is finally long enough that they fit. Being a grandparent is the neatest thing. What a joy & blessing they are! They brings a sweet balance with all the males around here. :)
As I was working on this page this morning  I got a call from Sam's Teacher.  Apparently at recess Sam {10} was playing football on the playground. He slipped on a patch of ice, fell backwards hitting his head on the concrete. I was pretty shook up when his teacher told me that. She said he was crying, they were icing his bump on the back of his head. I said I'll be right there. {Less then a 10 minute drive.} With head injuries you can't be too careful.
I called the Clinic before i left the house.  The nurse told me to bring him to ER and have him checked out..... After 1 1/2 hours monitoring him , checking him over and asking him a few questions...his name,  the date, his pain level  between 1  & 10...10 being the worst he said his pain was a 9.  They opted out doing  a  C-Scan  or Xray. No need to expose his head to radiation if they don't have to. They gave him Motrin for pain....  Turns out he's fine....the ER  Dr told me to wake him up every 4 hours tonight till he comes to and answers me, and have him see his regular Ped Dr in 2 weeks.  I'm sure he'll be fine. I'm glad i took him in. I have heard to many horror stories about peeps who hit their heads and then something tragic happens to them later on.
We just love our kids, don't we!

Have a great evening!! Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs!!

L@@K Who's Two


Products Used~ CTMH CS, Rub-Ons, My Minds Eye {Penny Lane} DP, Owl Stamp Hobby Lobby, SU  Scallop Border Punch, Marvy  Circle & Scallop Punches, Googly Eyes, Copics


My granddaughter Cailyn's 2nd BD is Monday the 18th, the  party is today. I thought she would like a  cute Owl card with funny  googly eyes.  This is the only Owl stamp i own that I'm aware of.

Before Christmas break  Micah's teacher asked if i would come in and make Christmas cards with the class. Sure i said. Nothing to hard, we did use the Cuttle Bug and made a stamped Christmas  tag.   They had fun with that. Anyway, one of the moms told me she had 2 large sheets of  Sentiment Stamps and an Owl SS  that i could have. {She ment to buy Rub Ons and when she went to play months later, she realized they were stamps and not rub on.} What...
 She said she would bring them to school after Christmas break. Well sure enough she  did. I asked her "WHY" she didn't return them, or exchange them. She said... "oh that's ok, I know you stamp and you can have them".  She insisted i take them.. so i did... with a fight. :) I lost. Soooo
 Recently when i was out shopping I just so happen to stop at HL, and  just so happened to buy some Rub On sheets. Just so happen to bring them to school, hoping to run into her.  And I just so happen to get them into her hands. Hehehe  She was happy, she said she  likes to make cards & scrap book  pages for her mother and likes using  rub ons. Anyway, with that being said...., that's where the Owl image came from. I think it's cute!
 I need to get ready for the BD party. It's at MC Donalds.  :)
Thanks so much for your visits & sweet comments. And YES... Sparkle Rocks!!
Have a great weekend!  **Added in Birthday Photo**

Love Always

Products Used~ CTMH Bella DP, CS & Textured CS Spring Iris, Ribbon, All My Love SS, SU Heart-Circle  Punch,  Tulip Ink,  Hinges,  Foam Dots, Coasters are 4x4

I haven't made one of these coaster thingies in a while.  I'm making a few to give to grandparents and my daughter for Valentines Day. Plus I have a CTMH Gathering at the end of the month,  and  thought we would make coasters and a card. Dew Drops are just to show they can add their own  choice of embellishment.
All is well in my neighborhood.... we got dumped on, on  Friday with 10" of snow. The kids love that!  The snow hills in town are covered with kids, tubes, saucers, snowboards and whatever else they can slide down the hill on. How fun!  Sam just started  snowboarding. Poor guy is on the ground  more then he's vertical... hehehe... He'll get it!!
When my daughter was in college in 94/Spring Field MO. They got snow one day {usually never snows their} Christyl said... the kids ran outside with their laundry baskets and slid down the hills. That just makes me LOL.
My In laws in North FL have never enjoyed the snow like we get it. I wished they would come visit us in winter. : )  hint...hint
Packers are in AZ today for the playoffs. They won last week in AZ. Here's hoping they win again  today!!  "GO Pack GO"
Anyhoo, enough jabber. Hope you're all keeping warm!  Thanks much for your visits and sweet comments.
Have a great day!
