Halloween Card

Happy Halloween! Since I have no kids left at home for Halloween I thought I would make some cards for my grandkids.

  • For the background paper I used dark orange cardstock and used my versa mark pad with stamps from Studio G.
  • I stamped the same design with versa mark ink pad on yellow cardstock and then embossed with black embossing powder.
  • The floss wrapped around the card is from Karen Foster called Scrapper's Floss.
  • I cut the bottom on the orange cardstock with fancy scissors and then ink the bottom of the cut.
  • I used dimensional dots under the yellow and black cardstock.

Nancy and Lisa
Leslie and Carrie
My sister Leslie (bottom left) took us all out for a nice evening. It's not very often that all of us sisters can get together. Leslie took us to see a play called "Girl's Room". This play had some very good actors and it made it seem you were really watching their life. She got us these really great seats, middle section, second row! After the play she took us all out to Dinner at this very nice restaurant. It's so nice to be together again and just talk. Even though we don't always agree on our political views or religion, we do love each other very much and we would do anything for each other. Now that my brother has retired from the Fire Department, we will have to get him to come down from Vegas and join us! That would be a blast!
I feel blessed to have such good sisters and brother. They are all really good people and I love them very much.

Our 30TH Wedding Anniversary

On October 14, 1978 we started our Marriage.

30 years later we have a wonderful family.

We have Five children and 9, soon to be 10 grandchildren.

Life has been great!

We celebrated by spending a few days in Corona Del Mar.

We also had some fun at Universal Studios.

And of course we ate at our favorite place

Black Angus. Everything was perfect!

Birthday Card

I made this card for my son's 29Th birthday.
The background is a cuttlebug embossed folder.

In Utah again...

I have been in Utah for the past 10 days taking care of some business and visiting my family. This is a picture of my sweet little grandsons. They are so cute and fun to be with. I had such a hard time leaving them! We had a picnic at the park and all 9 of my grandkids were there Ü
