Dear Friend....., and the most exciting news!!!

Hi friends,

I made this card last night and called it "Dear Friend". You can see why....I actually handwrote the words on the card with a metallic silver gel pen.

If you look at the image, she is writing what appears
to be a letter, so this fit perfectly. I glued 3 small Prima
flowers to the right hand corner and added the little
embellishment to it. Then I maded the dots with the
silver pen down the side. I am sorry, I don't know
who makes this image, as it was sent to me a long time
ago. Not the stamp, just the image pre-stamped. If
you know who makes it, I would love to know.

I had so many other things to share and then something
soooooooo exciting happened to me this morning that
I have to share with you!

Do you ever feel like you will bust with excitement over
something soooo special, that you want to share it with
the entire world! That is how I feel right now....YUP!

Yesterday I joined face book, not knowing that my sons
were on there and found them when I did a run of my
yahoo address book. Well, not an hour ago, I received
a message from my youngest son Robert, telling me that
he and his beautiful wife Dana are expecting my first

Wooooo Stinkin Hooooo! You
wanna talk about doing the
happy dance!!!!!

It's a boy!!!!! And his name is
Dylan Gregory (last name left out to
protect them)!!!!!!! Oh Stinkin Joy!!!!!
Do I sound a little excited!!!! Yupppers!

The good Lord has blessed me with the best thing
thathas happened to me since my beautiful little
Granddaughters were born! Yup! I have 2 of the most
beautiful little Granddaughters! Even though I have
not been able to see them in person for a long time,
I love them with all my heart!

Not trying to be morbid, but if I died tomorrow...I could
not be any happier than I am right now! Sorry to be so
mushy, but that is how I feel and needed an outlet! Thanks
for listening to this crazy Grandma slobber all over you!

Have a fabulous day and Happy Stamping my friends!

Mini CD Album for a dear friend!

A few weeks ago I completed this CD Mini Album for a very special friend...Linda Abby!

This was such a fun and easy project to do and makes a really nice gift for anyone! If you want the instructions, just click on the name above and it will take you to the You Tube video, where I found it! This sweet lady has some fabulous projects.

Here is the front...I am so mad at myself because
I deliberately looked at the make of the designer
paper I used and now can't remember what it
was. I believe I got it at Hobby Lobby though, if
that helps!
When you open the cover.....I used the library
pocket fold she describes in the video to put the
Thanks ATC in. Linda loves cherries and I
rescued the paper from some product (can't
remember what it was.
I cut things off of all kinds of things to use and the
saying on the right panel is one of them.
Here is one side opened....hard to get a picture
of the whole thing.

And here is the other side open.
I left it to Linda to add anything else and her photos
to it. The only drawback is you have to keep things
thin, so that the CD will close.
This was so much fun to make and I had to make
sure she got it before I posted it, since she follows
my blog! Enjoy Linda and thank you for being
my friend! Hugs Lori

Finally got the 3rd Triple Play done!

Finally finished this last card! It was more of a challenge than the first 2 cards. The circle behind the heart is a Fiskars Circle punch and that alone drove me crazy. The evidence is the little piece above the angel on the left panel. That one came out terrible, but I hate waste, so I cut off the good pieces to use elsewhere.

All Stamps used are from the "Heart Strings" set by FireCracker Designs by Pamela. Her link is on my sidebar if you want to go check her out.

I hope you like the card. I have a lot of other things to share, but just have to find the time to get them in a post. Most go for now, as I have lots of fur babies to get supper for. Have a great evening!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Hi and Happy Valentine's Day! This is the card that has driven me nuts trying to get a good picture of it. I finally took it outside and turned the flash off . The 4th and last picture came out at least so you can see it. All total I took the pictures at least 30 times! It was driving me nuts. I was so happy with the way it came out and soooo wanted to share it.

This card is also a Technique Junkies technique, called Mono Dies! I just love this technique! Now I just need to get more shape dies...LOL! The "I love you" stamp is from the "Heart Strings" set from Firecracker Designs by Pamela. Can you tell that I love this set!

Thanks for coming by and checking it out. I would love to hear what you think of the card.
