Happy Birthday to Nephew

Thought for the Day
Families are like fudge - mostly sweet with a few nuts

Good morning, yesterday was my oldest brothers, oldest sons birthday!
My first nephew.
Due to circumstances out of my control, I don't have any real contact with him, but I still send a birthday card every year, just so he knows that we are out here if he is ever interested in getting to know me and his two cousins.

Monday Makeover: Pocketful of wishes

Charming people live up to the very edge of their charm, and behave as outrageously as the world lets them.

Logan Pearsall Smith

Good morning!
So I have been going through old cards that have been sitting around for a while.
Either I never finished them for posting. I was never really happy with them in the first place or frankly, they just need a bit of a do over.

This is one that was still in pieces from a class I took ... uuuum .. .way to long ago to remember!
The button is a fun brad and the pocket flap lifts up and holds a gift card. But the card itself opens up so a note can be written.

Sorry - no supplies :O(

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

Millions and millions of years would still not give me half enough time to describe that tiny instant of all eternity when you put your arms around me and I put my arms around you. ---Jacques Prévert

Good morning!
I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I am taking off this next week to enjoy some quality time with my husband as well as the weather before the heat of Summer sets in.

Today is the start of a new Clean & Simple challenge at The Outlawz and our Sponsor this month is Fresh Brewed Designs

Our challenge this week is to create a Clean and Simple card or project with the focal point being a word or sentiment.

Here is my card

Size 4.25 x 5.50
Card stock from The Paper Studio and Stampin Up!
Sizzix die "Phrase, Hugs"
Spellbinder die "Tree"
Rhinestones from my stash colored with a red sharpie
