Leon's 30th Birthday

Last month (August 11th) my son Leon (who lives in Michigan) celebrated his 30th birthday. I decided to give him a surprise birthday party. Planning started long before in February when I booked my airline flight to Michigan. I can't believe we were able to keep it all a secret! Leon didn't even know that I was coming for a visit, that's how under wraps we kept it.

I wanted to share just 2 pictures with you from that day. The one is Leon's initial surprise reaction when he came down the basement (we had the party at my Mom's house) and everyone yelled surprise. The other is a pic of me and Leon. We had a wonderful time and we created a ton of memories some I will hold in my heart forever and the rest I will scrapbook.

One More

Okay, I just couldn't resist posting this card. I love the way it turned out, very simple but cute! I used The Angel Company stamp set, Just Dream and I colored the image in with markers. I'm not sure you can tell in the picture but I used Star Dust Stickles on the wings. I kept the background simple by using the cloud paper. In person this card is so soft. Well, this is card number 4 for today, can't quit yet.

Busy Again

It's been awhile since I've blogged, in all honesty I keep forgetting (darn that menopause!).

I have been busy crafting lately though. I'm still making a card a day for my Mom and I have surpassed the 70 mark (last time my Mom counted). I usually spend Saturday and/or Sunday making about 7 or 10 cards and then during the week I can spend my free craft time scrapbooking.

The Angel Company recenting released the new catalog and fall supplement and it is jammed packed with WONDERFUL stamp sets! All my new creations are using TAC stamps.

Here are 3 cards I made today. I know the bunny one looks like Easter and I'm sure that is what the set of stamps is meant for but I liked it to much to pass it up. If you'd like the recipes for the cards just drop me a note. I need to get back to my room to make some more.
