Crazy fun times

We took our oldest daughter, her 3 boys, our son, his wife and their 2 kids to Disneyland this past weekend. Our 4 year old granddaughter loves everything princess and fairy so anytime we had the chance to see some of them we took the opportunity. I made a page for her to hang in her room. Monday afternoon as I was putting stuff away, I looked out the back window into the pasture and thought I saw a calf.....not only was there 1 calf but 2. The calf with the white dot is a heifer and the other one is a bull. We have 7 more to go so I will post more as they drop. Who knows what crazy name these will end up with. I am hoping I get the energy & mojo flowing to start posting some cards soon. Have a great day!!

Shower Gifts

My nieces are having babies and I was asked to share what i did with their presents. For my new great nephew Hunter, I made a bugs and kisses theme. I used versamark to stamp worms, grasshoppers and ants on his card stock onsie tag. The onsie is 11" tall.
For my niece Hadley(?....not sure yet on the name) I made an 10 1/2 inch circle tag & then added a baby face.

The baskets are filled with clothes & various baby stuff with a portable highchair in the wrapping paper at the bottom. No this isn't all from me, my 2 daughters and my daughter-in-law went in with me.
Some of the cuter outfits i had to hang on the back so they didn't get all wrinkled up.

I did not realize it has been so long since I posted. Crazy things have happened since my last post but most of it isn't worth posting about. I really haven't made too much lately and the stuff I have done are of my dear little grand daughter who was stillborn in September.
Anyway this post is for those of you who wanted to see how I wrapped the gifts. Hugs to you all!

Teacher Appreciation Week

My oldest daughter asked me to help her with a booklet for her middle son's teacher. She and the other mothers have made and given some pretty awesome gifts to their children's teachers this week, lunch, gift card baskets, flowers and chocolates, spongebob baskets(one teachers favorite). I thought I would show you how the booklet came out. DD and another mom asked the kids to give them answers to questions like "What I love most about Mrs. Davidson is...". I must say there were some pretty funny answers from liking her funny laugh to going to miss cursive(little do they realize.....they won't miss the cursive a bit (LOL). DD printed the sayings on vellum, attached to the back of the vellum with glue dots were crisp(ironed & starched) $1 bills. We used the bind-it-all to make the book, decorated the outside and realized the $100 in ones made for a thick book so we made a band to hold it tight. Once she removes the $ it will be a normal looking little booklet.

I wanted to share a little quail nest in one of my planters. My hubby turned the watering system on & the momma flew out. he looked closer and realized there was a nest so he cut the water to my planter. My flowers are slowly wilting but hopefully the little quails will make it.

Hope you all have a great day! Happy Mothers Day this weekend. Maybe I can sneak a little goodie in this weekend.:)

Card Fun

I finally got the get up and go to make some cards and had a blast. What therapy....just what I needed. This first card is a Dustin Pike image. I colored this image long ago and never did anything with it until now. I had a really hard time coming up with what to do with image and then after playing around for awhile this is what I came up with. Another Dustin Pike image and naturally being a gingerbreadaholic....I cased a card given to me by my friend Jenn. I actually photo shopped the image onto a mask so it was hard to color but I managed. I used MS grass punch for the icicles and put dazzling diamonds on it.
This is freebie from Bugaboo Stamps. She has a Freebie Friday and gives away darling images to get you to try (and fall in love with). She succeeded.

A Cricut card...

SU stamp used to make this butterfly card.

I have more to post........later. (Vickie)
have a great day.

Independence Day and Wedding

Family has gone home and the wedding is over so life is slowly getting back to normal (whatever that is--HA). I thought I would share an early 4th freebie with you. You can snatch it here. I snapped a few pictures at the wedding of the lovely bride & groom. The groom is my nephew and the last to be married in his family. His older sister was married on the 17th of April ---last year, then his younger brother got married on may 16th of last year. This wedding was the 16th of April so you can imagine what his mom has been going through. Three weddings with in a years time. I know she is exhausted and glad she stopped at three kids. LOL They have been complaining that they only get to buy grand cat and grand dog toys so now with all three married....maybe, just maybe that will change. The wedding was at Stonebridge Manor in Mesa, AZ and it was simply beautiful. Plush grounds with flowers and greenery everywhere. The bride chose yellows, oranges and greens as her color scheme. Everything was beautiful. here is a page to give you a hint of how it truly gorgeous it was.

Birthday cards

My daughter-in-law and grandson share the same birthday so I have actually been making cards....shocking I know. This is a card for my DIL using an image freebie from Cuddly Buddy, the sentiment is a SU stamp. She likes bling so I had to use some jewels on it for her. I started this card for her but didn't like how it turned out so this goes into my pile of emergency cards. The image I believe is a Dustin Pike image.....i printed it some time ago so my memory is faded on looks like his style though. You can't really see it but I used crystal effects on the toenails so they look like they are polished.
This one is for my grandson who just turned 5....he immediately tore the dragon off the card and asked if he could hang it on his wall. I thought that was cute. I used another Dustin Pike image for this card.

Have a great day!

Her hubby is one of the funniest guys I know and they are throwing him a surprise birthday party and have invited us. It will be great to see them.

Bugaboo Gift

I love Bugaboo stamps. They are so darn cute & fun to play with and the fact that they share them....(especially on Friday's) is wonderful. I put crystal effects on the shell and stickled the center of the flower. The sentiment is SU! Have a great weekend!!

Another page & cards

I loved the kit that I posted earlier by Lliella so I had to go buy it to make a few more pages. Michelle actually made the QP i discovered. This page is of my DGS & DGD eating "I can't believe it's not butter" spray. I wish I had used a different color on the journaling....I may go back & edit it. We have stopped buying this butter because all they wanted to do was eat it like that & it probably isn't too healthy anyway. On to the cards......
Sam made the peanut....

And the flower......

This is Vickie's card.....
