Bridal Shower

I had a Bridal Shower to attend last weekend.  Unfortunately, I wasn't able to go as I was in Michigan visiting my in-laws.  However, I still wanted to send a gift and a card!  Here is my card.

Bridal Shower Card

The picture is cropped kind of funny - I've been experimenting with some new (to me) photo programs.  I used Pink by Design Damask background stamp and Pink by Design sentiment from the Enjoy the Journey set.  I love both of these!  The butterflies are from a "BRIDES" set.  I hope you like my card!  If so, please share my blog with your friends!  :)  Happy Crafting!  Lisa

Old Time Fun

I want to start this off by saying I am a very BLESSED person.  I have a great family who is very supporting as well.  I am (let's just say) 30-something, and I have two incredible parents (who are STILL married to each other), two awesome brothers (Yes girls, brothers get better as we age!), and fantastic husband and bonus son!  I also have the best GRANDMA a person could ever ask for.  She's (we'll say) 70-something and  continues to live life to the fullest!  She has always been an independent (though  married to my grandpa until he died of cancer in 2000), strong, intelligent, gorgeous, stubborn, on the go kind of person.  I idealize her more and more then older I get.  She lives about 9 hours from me so I only get to see her a couple times a year.  My husband and son have never been down to her place so they've only seen her when she is surrounded by all of our family and rushing to see everyone in her short visits up here.  A few weeks ago, Colin was on spring break, so we loaded up the car and drove down to Grandma's for a few days! 

HOLY COW - we all had a blast.  I think Colin and Scott were both shocked, dumbfounded and truly impressed with Grandma's energy.  Me?  I just loved spending the time with her and watching Scott and Colin really see the true lady I know as Grandma and have known and loved all my life.  I want to show you a few pictures so you can see how incredible she is too!

That's my grandma on a zipline!And here's me:
The boys, well, they wouldn't do it.  But Grandma and I had a blast.  This is definitely a moment with my granny, I will NEVER foget!  Here's a few more pics from our weekend together.
Getting Ready to zip line as Colin looks on.

My catfish - grandma and grandpa always took us fishing when we were kids.  This is by far the biggest catch (other than Scott of course), I've ever made!

We walked in the door - the margaritas were waiting!

Lisa, Colin & Grandma - look at the waterfall!

Scott and Grandma at a VFW memorial in Cherokee Village, Arkansas.

The lake Grandma lives on.  We were out on the pontoon boat as sunset.  Purty, huh!  

Okay now for the crafts - I know, you've been waiting long enough!  
I am mailing this card to grandma with a little message and a card Colin is making as well.  We're going to thank her for a great weekend and send her some pictures of our time together.  On this card I used, (look close) Pink By Design Crinkle Ribbon.   The sentiment is also from PBD - "enjoy the journey" set.  The paper is from We R Memory Keepers Tres Elegant stack.

The inside of grandma's card!

While we were gone, my friend Sara, looked after our mail and some deliveries we had coming.  I made this card to thank her.  This sentiment (found on the Say It Sweet PBD set) and twine is also from Pink By Design.  The chocolate covered strawberry was made with the Sweet Shop cricut cartridge.

That's my weekend in a nut shell.  Thanks for visiting and bearing with me through all my pics!  I hope each of you have an incredible Grandma just like I do!

Happy Crafting!

Easter Fun

Hi Everyone!  I found myself with a little extra "quiet" time on Saturday, so I made a few Easter cards and tags.  Wanna see?  Here ya go.....

Fruit Salad is pretty easy to identify, but come on, these are cute and functional!  I couldn't resist!

I made two of these...one for Scott and one for Colin.  I love the magic top hat background!  :)
