My Mother's Birthday Card


Here is the Birthday card I made for my Mom for her birthday....

I love neighbors



Okay So I am stamping the other day I am so hungry and don't want to stop stamping to eat or fix dinner for that matter. Well low and behold my wonderful neighbor and yes she is my friend too, comes to my house with this bowl of food for me. SO while I was putting stamps together I started laughing yes by myself looking at the stamps and the bowl of food and said I have to take a picture of this, and post on my blog what a wonderful neighbor I have.... It stinks cause she is moving in 1 month and she is moving far away!!!! I will miss you neighbor/friend Laura!!

Shadow box




Hello stampers,


Here is a projected I did on Saturday for my friend Laura. Her husband is going to be colonel this year and he was sent a handful of letters. He said do you think you and Monica could do something with them? Well this is what we came up with. I even made the dog tags cause he can't give me his real ones right now. Maybe once he retires I can make him another shadowbox with his real tags in them! It was a lot of fun to make I couldn't wait to see the final product. I was thinking about it for days what I was going to do, so when the time came I just went to work. I also had another friend (Julie) stop over to watch me play, she then got involved in the project. So between the 3 of us I really think it looks great! I really wish I had my camera when I gave it to Laura's husband Ron, He said WOW! I was a little scared because I tore the actual letter's and inked the edges of them. ( Laura told me it was okay) So when he said WOW I said wow good or wow bad? He said Good I said Oh Okay! He said it looked great and never excepted it to look like it did?
Not to brag but Ron's never really seen MY work!! LOLO

There is a lot of detail in the shadow box... The dog tags were embossed, the stars are embossed and pop dotted, eagle and soldier are made with marker and also pop dotted to make it stand out more. There are 4 paper clips on the letters that spell out ARMY!

I hope you guys like!!
Leave me a comment and you could wins some goodies from me!!!
I will have my random generater pick who wins!!

Gianna's FALL Caution YUCK PICTURE


Okay I said what the heck I am going to upload a photo of my youngest daughter accident that she had Friday Night! Well lets just say there was so much blood I thought I was going to pass out!!!!!
We have been in contact with the dentist VIA phone and E-mail Friday and Saturday! (we can't believe we got her to take this picture for the dentist) We were told a few things to look for and get in for x-rays towards the end of the week. Unless we feel she just isn't getting any better sooner. Well She is Fine.... I think her Parents are more sick over it! If you know Gianna and you know how sweet she is you would be sick too! She ended up falling face first on the tile floor.
