Fairy Wishes

Here it is another week of FWF.  I told myself no more cards as I am super behind on my scrapbooking, but I had colored and stickled this fairy a week or two ago when I was doing stamping with my daughter.  When I went to get the sheet I used I discovered that our 80lb labradoodle dog had been laying on the chair where I set it down last night.  Since my son went to college last fall she has become a naughty dog.  She takes things out of the garbage, chew up the papers, and now will readily jump up on the chairs.  Something she never did before.  I have tried giving her extra attention but it does not replace her true companion, my son.  Anyway, I had to be creative to cover up some of the dirt she got on my stamped image.  Here it is.

Stamp: Unity KOM What lies within us and Unity Growing in Unity

Thanks for checking my blog.  Have a terrific weekend.

Pandas, pandas and more pandas

Another Friday and time for friends with flair(FWF).  I made a quick card tonight after I was done taking care of my adorable great nephew.  Ekkk I am getting more and more of them.  I love having a baby in the house.  I definitely figured out quickly I am not as young as I  use to be.  I must admit I got a little tired.  He and I even took a little nap together.  Rocking that little blue eyed blond haired boy brought me back 18 years ago when my oldest was one.  But like they say it is fun to have them visit but I you are glad when they to get him.

Anyway here is my card. Sorry about the poor quality of the lighting. I was taking the pictures at 11pm.  It actually has sparkle and I am happy the way it turned out.  It is just not apparent in my photo.

Life is Beautiful

The weather went from below zero one week to 50 above the next week.  I hope it is safe to say that Spring has come to Minnesota.  I am feeling happy and warm.  My oldest is home for Spring Break and we had not seen him for two months, I met up with my oldest and one of my best friends this past weekend, attended a great nephews birthday party and tomorrow it may reach 70 degrees. How can it get any better, I am surrounded by the people I love and it is officially Spring next week. So for me "life is beautiful".
