Luck O' The Irish

Have you made any St Patrick's Day cards yet? I know it's not really a card-sending kind of holiday but you know us paper-crafters...we will use any excuse to make a card.

How Can This Be Comfortable?

Tell me how this is right. Just being that close to my husband's feet is enough to gross me out. But Dexter doesn't seem to mind. The smellier the better. He gets into the weirdest positions to sleep and seems so comfortable and at peace. You gotta love him!

So Happy We're Friends

This is a card I made using a recent sketch layout from Our Creative Corner. I don't use purple that much because it is such a strong color but I think it works great here with the green.

My Budding Artist

Please indulge me while I boast about my little artist. This is my daughter who is 7 years old and in first grade. Every year the schools here have an art contest and the winners that are chosen from every grade have their art displayed in the town hall for the month of March. This year my daughter won! There were only 5 kids chosen from her elementary school and only one from the first grade class, and she was the one! I am so proud and, as you can see, so is she. This is her artwork that won. It is called "Itsy Bitsy Spider" and is a 3-D art project. I just think it's great!

Baby Blue

Hi there! I hope you've all had a good weekend. We spent Friday night celebrating my daughter's 7th birthday, but besides that all we've done this weekend is try to keep the puppy from chewing on things and clean up pee. Ah, the life of new puppy owners. Don't you wish you were us? I keep telling myself that this too shall end. He will eventually get the hang of everything and my life will return to normal. As if normal was something that it was before!

Anyway, here's a card I just made while the puppy was snoozing to the lulling sounds of the NASCAR race. A co-worker of mine will be having her first baby any day now and it will be a boy, as you can guess. So I made this for her. Hope you like it! Mary
