A thank you card for my Sis

I made this card for my sister Cheryl. She helped make my birthday very special. She took me and my kids out for lunch and colored my hair and joined me and my family for dinner a few times over the last week. Thanks Cheryl

Had a GREAT birtday week!!!!

I had the BEST birthday gift show up at my door on Mon. the 15th. Sarah, an exchage student we had in 2000 was in my kitchen when I came home Monday night. she spent the week with us. We had a great time catching up. I hated seeing her leave last night. Her flight was canceled out of Seattle. She left our house at 10pm and drove to Seattle to see if she can get on another flight. she got in Seattle at 4:45am..She has a LONG day ahead. I just hope she gets a flight soon and dose not have to sit in the airport for very long. I wish she was leaving out of spokane so she was closer if she cant get out. here are a few photos of us I have lots but I will just share a few.

Having a Great time...

I am realy enjoying the time we have with Sarah. (exchange student we had in 2000-2001) last time we saw her was 2003. when we went to Gremany to see her. It was a surprise for me, she and my husband planed it. We all went tuesday to cheer Steve on for the roll off for first place..(he won 1st)  Both our girls and Sarah and our Grandson was there. Christian had a great time with the boys down in the pit. giving high 5's and pounding it with the boys.

I made this card using the inside of the small oval pattern and the red blade. for the eggs. The wavy rotory blade for the grass,  1 small (1 1/4 circle and 1 (1 1/2) circle from the circle punch, and 2 , 1 inch squares from the square punch. that I trimed for the ears. I wanted to use some of the products to help with her sales.
