This was my swap card for my meeting, it uses the new Movers and Shakers Die, and it is so cool, it cuts the card the correct shape, it scores and it makes the curly label punch all at the same time. The curly label punch is on a magnet so you can move it around and make the hole anywhere. Here is a video to explain it better, click on the arrow on the scrapbook page to start the video.
I love cards like this, quick but cute, and I love making a card that is a statement. See what it says inside?
It reminds me kinda of Nemo, remember Nemo was special? Since our son Eric has special needs those kind of movies really hit home, I also love the movie Mr. Hollands Opus.
Did you also notice the front of the card on the bottom?
this, the 12×12 designer series paper, and it is in the pack Sweet Slumber, there are several pages that have this cool border all the way around it, and it is really for scrapbooking, but I just layed it on the Movers and Shaker Die so that the bottom was left on the card after it got cut out, then it has a design, cause really the front of the card is pretty plain, I mean no stamping at all, just the ribbon tied, but yet the card is so cute…I think.
…Sweet Canadian Blog Reader. About a week ago I think I got a really nice email from Sharon O'Gorman (waving Hi!) from Canada, we chatted back and forth a bit. My parents are about 2 hours from where she lives. But anyway, the last time we talked she said she found a cute little calendar at Micheals that made her think of me from a post and she was going to mail it to me. So I was tickled and kept wondering hmmm…what could it be…a Canadian flag? A Monkey? A Beaver? I could not even think. So today it came and I
hurridly quickly opened up the envelope and look what was inside. The cutest little card, and 2 M&M calendars, I laughed so hard, cause THAT never even crossed my mind…those rascals, wrangling their way onto a calendar! I want to thank you Sharon for such a nice present and for thinking of me and making me laugh. I have the best blog readers ever, I feel like we are all friends.
…Awesomest ever Granny, my Granny turns 90 years old today, can you imagine? Great Poppa, Granny's Dad lived to be 97, and we are hoping and praying she beats that record. You know that song "Waitin' on a Woman" by Brad Paisley? the video makes me cry, cause I think of Poppa in heaven waiting for Granny…I love you Poppa, but just hold tight, we aren't ready to let her go just yet. She is doing so much better now compared to a few years ago, and she lives in a nursing home in her home town where her friends and family can come visit her.
Poppa and Granny basically raised my sister Jacqui and me, and I don't say that to diss my Mum or anything, cause my Mum raised us too. All three of us lived with Granny and Poppa for a long time, but I do feel that we were shaped a lot by Poppa and Granny, our values are a little more old fashioned, and the love they bestowed on us was unconditional that I only think Grandparents can give. Poppa gave Jacqui and I away at our weddings. I treasure them and miss Granny, she is such a hoot and I am bad about calling her, I will be hollering at her today as they are having an open house, so I am thinking there will be enough people around to get a phone to her. I miss Poppa every day, we lost him in 1997 to cancer.
This is a picture I found when I was looking for pics the other day. Makes ya wonder what Granny and Poppa were thinking. Poppa always seemed to be smiling, and I hope he smiles still when I think of him, I like to think he does.
OK, I am off of here for today, have a very Happy Easter, and thanks for stopping in!
