Welcome, Baby Julia!

One more card today!  (I haven't been on my blog for weeks and now 3 times in one day!)
And a very special announcement! I have a new granddaughter: Julia Rose.
She was born on Wednesday and is doing beautifully, as is her mom! She has 3 brothers and a sister to welcome her home and they are all thrilled with far! LOL Just wait until she cries too much to suit them or gets into their Legos! Oh well, we are rejoicing and thanking God for another healthy baby and a safe delivery!
Here's the card I made to welcome her:

The image is a digital one from A Day for Daisies
I used my bow-maker from Craft-dee Bowz to make the bow and a Spellbinders die (CC Fancy Ribbon Threader) for the little tag. Oh, and a Cuttlebug embossing folder...the tiny hearts one.

(Cropstop doesn't like you link multiple cards in a row...but I really did create my 3 cards in less than 24 hours and finally had a chance to post on my blog!)

Hello, Butterflies!

Now here is a simple "Hello" greeting card that I left blank inside (well, I did add a butterfly!). I was inspired by a sketch I saw on "Cas(e) this Sketch". Great way to use up scraps too!

The die-cut butterflies are made using the FSJ "Butterflies" die set.

Happy Birthday, Biff!

Good morning! What a lovely, rainy Saturday! I am forced to stay indoors and actually get some household chores done...and a little blogging! Today I have a few cards I want to post and enter into some challenges. First up, a birthday card for my son. A masculine card...sorta.

This card is appropriate for him because I know I likes wood. He heats with wood and has also tackled many a carpentry project. And "clean and simple" is always good for a guy's card!
