Just because..........

I stayed home from work on Thurs. & Fri. as I was not feeling well at all.  I felt like I had been hit by a truck and my throat was very sore and I could barely talk.  I went to my Dr. on Thurs. morning & he put me on an antibiotic.  Friday I felt better so I made some cards for my 2 adorable granddaughters, Sierra and Brooke.  My favourite LSS has card classes but I am unable to make some of them.  They put together all the elements required to make the cards in a kit form.  I took some of the card kits with me when I was on vacation in Wisconsin at the beginning of the month.  I bought another kit last week and chose 2 of the cards to make for my granddaughters.

I hope you like them as much as I do!

First up is Sierra's card:

I don't know which stamp set this is but I really like it.  The flowers were stamped on designer paper and all I had to do was cut them out and adhere them over the stamped image.  The butterflies I added was my own idea.  This card was easy & fun to make.  I sponged the card stock and designer paper and used my corner punch to soften the edges.

Today I used my nesties and cuttlebug to add the sentiment inside the card.  I hope Sierra will like it.

On the back of the card at the bottom I added the finishing touch - my watermark if you will.

 Last but not least is the card I made for Brooke.  The sentiment is from Just Rite stamps and fit perfectly on the white circle which I sponged with olive green ink.  The prima flowers are from my stash and was my own idea.  I don't know which stamp this is either as it had already been stamped for me.  All I did was colour it with my prisma colour pencils.

 Here is the inside of Brooke's card:

The girls love to get mail and I love making cards for them.  All around a win win situation!

Necklace for Claire

Remember this post?
I finally made a necklace for Claire and put it in the easel card box I made.  Here are some photos:

Here is a close up:

Here is the necklace in the easel card box:

Claire really likes it and I am happy that I was able to make something for her that she likes.

I'm in deep Doodoo!

I bought my 5 yr. granddaughter Sierra a Friendship Bracelet kit.  I don't think my Daughter appreciated it very much cuz now she has made up a new house rule:

You can read about it here on her blog.

I have a feeling I will be spending time with Sierra on Christmas Day when I give her the scrapbook album kit I got for her and I also got one for 3 yr. Brooke.  You can see the album kits I bought for them here.  The sales lady in the store said she got one for her 7 yr. old niece and it took them 2 hours to make up the album.  I showed it to my daughter and she loved it.  She scrapbooks and has made a lot of pages.  She will be on maternity leave for a year beginning in late October and is looking forward to spending time with the girls and the new baby who will be joining them soon.

I got the albums at this store which is in St. Jacob's.  Opa and I went there yesterday.  We got some fresh veggies, homemade bread, home made baked goods (date squares and nanaimo bars) and I also bought myself 2 pullover sweaters and 2 pair of corduroy pants at the outlet mall.

Thanks for stopping by!
