National Smores Day

In honor of National Smores Day - I thought I would share
our family's smores at home.  We heat them in the microwave
for about 30 seconds.  They aren't exactly like roasting over an open fire
but they sure are yummy!!!!  Adding the faces is just a little added touch!
Happy Smores Day!!!!!

Light the Night in Chicago for the Leukemia Lymphomia Society

My brother in law Elliott Hall lost his battle to this senseless disease.  My wonderful mother in law Shirley and sister in law Angela will walk once again this year in his memory.  If you could take a moment and visit their page and if you make a contribution that would awesome.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Slider Feature made with this Punch and some pennies

Now I can't take credit for the slider feature - I learned it at a Stampin Up party I went to a long time ago.  But here is the link for the punch and the Stampin' Up website.

Fairy Slider Card

I have a card to share with you today. This was for Emily's 6th birthday. 
 It's a fairy slider card. 
 I can't remember who the stamp is but the slider feature is a Stampin Up punch.
I used watercolor pencils and gamisol to color her.
Emily loved it!

Kathy's Quilt Blanket

I love to crochet - my Mom taught me when I was 7 and I have been "hooked" ever since   This blanket was made for my BFF's Mom. We have been friends since I was 4 and Kathy was like a mom to me.  For her birthday one year I gave her a bunch of my patterns and told her to pick out one and I would come over and we could pick the colors and I would make it for her as a present. She made us dinner and we had a wonderful time.  Kathy passed away two years ago from congestive heart failure. When she passed her daughter, my BFF gave me the blanket back. I put it away so that I could keep it nice. Well my daughter Emily found it and brought it out this evening and when I came upstairs she had it laid out so perfectly I had to take a picture of it and share. I hope you like it!

My new great nephew Mason

Here is a quick card I made for my new great nephew Mason.
He lives in Hawaii with his Daddy who is in the Navy. 
How brave his Mommy is to give birth while his Daddy is away at sea!
We made a care package for Mason and his sister Peyton.  I can't wait for
them to receive it and the card!!!
