Birthday Wishes

Hello everyone!!! I am hoping you all have had a wonderful weekend!!! Mine has been just wonderful!!! Plus we are on holiday tomorrow so it is another day off for me ! Yippee!!! I so love holidays that get me out of work lol

I managed to get some play time in today so thought I would show you all what I have done as I have had a nice quiet day here to myself.

This is a card I made for Sunday Sketch and Stamp for there gorgeous sketch they have this week. I have used one of the Morehead images I got awhile back she was begging to be inked up lol I colored her with my copic's and added some of those gorgeous Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. I used the MS branch and leaf punch and also the border punch around the card. My sentiment not for sure about. I got this set of clear stamps awhile back and put them in my holder but never kept the wrapping ( I know shame on me)

Now this card is another one begging to get inked up, I bought this several weeks ago from Susana's Custom Arts and Crafts she is from the Elizabeth Bell collection. I have colored her with my copic's and I added some diamond glaze to the windows. The papers OMG are from Bearly Mine Designs. I went a little nuts getting some digi papers and boy am I going to have to stock up on ink for these papers are just beautiful. I used the gorgeous sketch from Sketch and Stash Challenge. I added some ribbon from my stash and some Prima flowers with some Pearl Brads. I used the MS branch punch around the flowers.
Now look at this image isn't' he just so squeezable??? This is one of the older images from Sugar Nellie from the Little Cotton Rabbits collection this is Dexter the Bear. I am so loving going back to using some of the older images. I love them just as much as the newer ones and the gorgeous images just get forgot about lol He has been colored with my copic's and I used some papers from BG. The sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly and I used some SU punches to punch it out. I added some Pearl Pen to the card in a couple of spots. I also added a Prima flower with a pearl brad and used the MS Leaf punch. On this card I used the gorgeous sketch by Dawny at Paper Take Weekly

Now I have a couple of pictures I would like to show you. This is my granddaughter Kirstie this was taken last week at one of her ballgames. She loves playing sports, I was a bad grandma and forgot to take my camera so my daughter took this with her phone and emailed it to me.

Now here is Kirstie again Friday night, she went bowling for her birthday, I guess she done really good her mommy got me a picture lol. Saturday we had her party at Chunkie Cheese!!! Oh yes I was really dreading going for the last time I went it was in the big city and OMG it was a nightmare but this time it was really quite nice, they have one closer to us now and it wasn't in the huge city so not so many was there but all the kids had a great time.

Well that is it for me for the day, I have had a very busy weekend, I was off Friday also and my grandson had been staying with me so Friday we went out and ate and then went and decorated my parents grave, then got all the yard work done. Then Saturday we were at the birthday girls party most of the day and done some shopping lol
My dear grandson will be coming back next week to stay with me for a few weeks to take Drivers Ed. OMG my little boy has grown up to be such a man!! Seems like just a few years ago I was chasing him around lol They so grow up so fast.
Well enjoy the rest of your day and thanks again for stopping bye. Sending Big Hugs((((((((())))))

  8. Fab cards Donalda!
    Someone stamped that bear image for me ages ago but I've never used it yet, so I might have to steal your 'Bear Hugs' idea!

  9. The Sugar Nellie Cotton Rabbits is delightful (another one on my wish list) & the colours are just awesome but then I do love orange. That pearl pen is so effective too. I agree the Bearly Mine Papers are superb & that gingham ribbon just finished it off. The Morehead's are new to me but that's delightful - 3 very different cards again. Thanks for sharing about your family - your grandson sounds fantastic.
