For the Birthday Boy

Time flies when you're having fun!  
Where has the time gone?
WOW 5 already!

Those are all the things that go through my head as I sit here thinking about tomorrow, my Grandson Hilton's 5th Birthday!  Seems like just yesterday we were impatiently waiting for him to be born!

I created this card for him to help celebrate his birthday!

And here is a picture of him and his baby brother for his Pre-K 4 graduation just a little over a month ago! 

Thanks for stopping by!

I'll be entering this in the Connie Can Crop "This is How We Roll Challenge"!

Mother Goose Blog Hop

Welcome to the “Mother Goose” Blog Hop!

If you came from my super wonderful talented friend MADGE, then you are in the right spot.  If you just happened by, hop on over to LISA'S BLOG, we don't want you to miss a thing.

 Being the "Nana" of 7 wonderful grandbabies and having 2 on the way (not twins btw, two of our children are expecting at the same time) I am pretty familiar with Mother Goose and Nursery Rhymes!  LOL 

This is one of my favorites, so I thought I would make a birthday card for my Mom who loves Ladybugs (ladybird)!


Ladybird, ladybird, fly away home!
Your house is on fire, your children all gone,
All but one, and her name is Ann,
And she crept under the pudding pan.

Then of course I couldn't stop there so I made a baby card, too!  :-)


Hey, diddle, diddle!
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon;
The little dog laughed
To see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

The design for the baby card is very similar to the one they show as an example in the handbook for the cartridge.  Of course I added my own twist!

Now on to the blog candy for this blog hop. Lisa will be giving one lucky winner a $20.00 gift certificate from Stampin' Up! All you have to do is be a follower of her blog and leave a comment telling her your favorite nursery rhyme. Lisa would like it if you would become followers of all the wonderful other blogs participating in today's hop!

 Your next stop is the very talented JESSICA!!!!

A Craft room update and a Birthday Card

Good Morning!  How have you been?  I know it's been a while since I've posted.  Same as everyone, I have been super busy with life!  My craft room became a catch all room and I couldn't even walk into the room.  But I decided about 2 weeks ago to start cleaning it.  I've thrown away 2 garbage bags full of stuff.  I have a long way to go but I'm getting there.  Let me say my craft room is small, it's only 10x10 and I have a lot of stuff in there. 

Here are a few before pics, you literally could not walk into the room, I am actually embarrassed to post these.  EEEKKKK

The desk in the top pic is gone out of the room completely along with most of the stuff in this pic.

This is what it's shaping up to be!  

 This is a stack that I still have to go through.  I put most of everything in the room into rubber maid containers to help me sort through it.

As you can see my room is a work in progress.  Hoping to be done with it soon!  LOL

Ok onto my card: I have few special birthdays coming up so I am working on some cards.  

 Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to pop in this weekend I'll be participating in the Mother Goose Blog Hop!

While searching for a super hero for my card for today's blog hop, I came across this and thought it would be perfect considering Father's Day is quickly approaching!
This adorable image can be found in the Silhouette store!

 Then I remembered that I had a Super Powers stamp set from CTMH.  Which by the way I think is discontinued.  But it was perfect for my card!
