out patient?

Hi friends,
I had a friend who thought she was going in for a quick out-patient procedure and ended up having major surgery and stayed over for 2 nights! With her in mind, I made her this card just to let her know I was thinking of her.

Pattern papers and die cut shapes are from the Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings line. Ribbon and green sequin is from my stash.
The US Thanksgiving holiday is just 2 days away. I would like to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Baby's First birthday

It's a beautiful sunny and cold fall morning here in Chicago land. And we have snow in our near future! I find as I get older, I am disliking winter more and more!

Today I am sharing a card I made for my daughter's girlfriend's daughter's first birthday. Did you get all that?!! Long story short, the girlfriend is a truly good friend to my daughter. She is always upbeat and can take you from a dark, depressing mood to laughing your butt off in 10 seconds flat! And her daughter is just as adorable as her mommy!

Everything I used on this card are scraps of this and that. Paper, cardstock, ribbon, twine and button ...I'm starting to clean out the old and bring in the new! The glitter I used on the #1 is chunky glitter from Stampin Up. I hand-drew the #1 on a piece of chipboard, cut it out, glued it up and sprinkled the glitter on it. Dressed it up with heart stick pins, bow, button and twine. Did I say this baby loves pink like her mommy?!

I have been going through old samples of sketches and cards and giving them a face lift! This is a good way to use up old papers and embellishments. It also jump-starts the creative juices!
Have a good weekend!
