Todays project...

I made this baby card for a friend who just had a new baby.  I'm sending the card along with a baby afghan that I crocheted. The colors of the afghan are the blue, green and white very similar to the card background.


I made this card for a friends birthday. The inside of the card says "your  simply the best" "wishing you a happy birthday".

Scrapbooks for Tripp

I was added to a group on Facebook. This group would be making cards to be added to a scrapbook for a very sick little boy named Tripp who has EB. The scrapbook will hopefully brighten their day and lift their spirits. Here is the card I am sending. If you would like to make one to send you can get more information at  http://www.facebook.com/groups/261311850582394/ .



If you would like to read more about Tripp's Story you can go to... http://randycourtneytripproth.blogspot.com/p/tripps-story.html#comment-form

 

I am asking everyone at the very least  to send a prayer for Tripp and his family.

Thanks,

Hello Card

Today I used Copic Markers for the first time. I created this card for Pauline. I really like the way they color and as for the blending,  I think I need more colors to see how that will work out. I did place an order from Scrapmart.com for 16 more markers. I hope Pauline likes it.

Any good Tips?????

I just purchased my first Copic Markers.

My local scrapbook store Wiggles & Giggles is having a great sale today. The Copic Markers are buy one and get one 50% off so I figured now would be the time to try them out.  I keep hearing how great these markers are but you have to use them correctly.  What is the correct way to use them? Any tips?

Floral Embellishment

I made this Floral Embellishment to post on Listia. http://www.listia.com/auction/2894228-floral-embelishment

I started listing items on here to gain points so I can use the points to purchase other neat items people make. It's kinda like ebay but there is no money involved. It's also a good way to get rid of items you no longer want and find items that you might like to have.

Our Ordeal From Winter Storm Alfred

Saturday October 31st I went to work as I usually do. I know they were talking about a NorEaster coming in later in the day. We had went and did our shopping and got our gas on Friday so we could just be home over the weekend. When I got home from work it had just started to snow big huge flakes. It was so pretty with all the white flakes coming down and the colorful foliage in the background.



And the snow continued to fall and fall and fall. It started to weigh everything down.




The large tree branches started falling and the power went out. We had branches falling all night on our roof. We were so lucky they didn't come  through the skylight or through the roof. I think when they fell they landed sideways so the whole branch landed at the same time and not on end where it would have came through the roof. Two large branches got tangled in the wires.



Half the branches on the tree in my front yard and half the branches from the tree in my backyard are laying on the ground. The town came and cut the branches from the wires on Wednesday. The city opened up a park near my house so people could bring all the branches and tree limbs and get their yards cleaned up. It's going to take about a goof 15 truck loads back and forth to get rid of ours. The bigger pieces we will keep for firewood.





We finally got our power back on Friday November 4th. Needless to say it has been a very long, cold week.
