Quaterback Ian

One of the images that Rachel stamped for me was Quaterback Ian. He's just so darn cute.

I colored Ian with my Bic markers in my old high school colors. I cut the football with the Sports Mania cart. Its rather plain but I like the simple look of it.

The card is for Kaegan, the seven-year-old son of two of my closest friends in High school. Kaegan had a stroke due to a small clot in the back of his brain near his brainstem on Sept 29. While he still has much more recovery ahead of him he is making outstanding progress. He is a tremendously strong little boy with an outstanding family support system. My heart longs to be in Texas so that I could help out Matthew and Amber. I do what I can here and send card and email to let them know that a doesn't pass that I don't think about them all. I also pray and ask anyone to also pray for Kaegan and his family. You can check THIS site to learn more about Kaegan and follow his wonderful progress

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Thursday!! I believe Clara and I are going to go hang out in Barnes and Nobles for awhile. Thanks for stopping by!!

I've been busy brainstorming on what to make for Christmas gifts. Ours family are too large to buy everyone something but I try to give everyone something. Last year I altered cheap glass ornaments with vinyl. I think I might stick with ornaments. Like I said I'm still brainstorming since I try to use the things I already have.

I wanted to post a couple of cards I've made for my "just in case" stash.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy a wonderful day!

Birthday Gifts

I've spent the day crafting away. My main project to get done was a birthday gift for my niece, Margorie. I was still in its planning stages until I got a call yesterday letting me know that they were celebrating early due to the fact that Margorie and her sister Olivia are the two busiest pre-teens I've ever met. So I had to get something done by Saturday.

I decided that I would make a cute little cover for a Jr. legal pad and alter a Frap bottle for her with some yummy mini chocolate chip granola bars in it.

I used a double sided paper from ColorBok. I also have to give a big thank you to Rachel (go check her out she does fabulous cards) for stamping me the image of Megan from The Greeting Farm. THANKS RACH!!! I colored Megan with my BIC markers. I think she turned out fairly well for me not know what I was doing. I just might have to break down and get some Copics. I'll cross my fingers that my Mom sends me money for Christmas cause I'm guessing Antony would freak if I told him I wanted to spend that much on markers.

Thanks for stopping by,
