Santa told me, "Teach the Children"

I have loved this story every since I received it a forward joke in my email.

I used the Cricut Cartridge Joys of the Season (except for the bell) and Stretch your Imagination

I made it as a card a few years back using SU set with a Santa and 2 children.. if I use the story again, maybe nobody will mind it with the new design! LOL

Take time to read the story!It's all typed out at the bottom of my blog. Thanks for looking!

If you want a copy of the story. in this layout as a PDF... just ask!

We've settled on a date...

Well the date is set, the place is picked and the plans are moving right along.
 August 21st

Judy and Leon are hosting the whole thing at their place. They have such a nice yard surrounded by pine trees.

I have his Grama  Grace's ring, but we are getting tattoos once I get them designed, mine will have to work around grama's ring.

It will be very csual, country setting, almost picnic like. The colors are Blue and White, we will have Red and White checkered table clothes, old Blue Mason jars for vases, White Daisies with Yellow centers.

He wants his Maternal Grandparents as our wittness'.. he talks to them Thursday.

I found a wicker picnic basket and decorated it to match the invites.

I am not too fond of this picture, but the other I have with our eyes open, we are standing next to each other. I am 5' 5" and he is 6' 5" so.. yeah I come up to his belly button! LOL

Happy B'day Joe!

The first card I've made since I hurt my hand.. no stamping!

I used Wild Card and George with the Cricut
Stickled the letters

I can't hold a stamp yet and I bought that stamp from DRS just for his card too!
So I typed it out and made it bigger... the stamp is cuter!

Brandy's picks... and the winner is..

A while back I created cards and asked for votes, that got me down to 2, and Brandy chose this one. I was thrilled since it was my fave!

.. until it came time to put that tooth pick on! grrrrrrrrrrr

40 cards all done and outta here! 

Keywords: Graduation
Stamps: yukon
Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Circle and Word SLot Punch, CB Folders, Cricut George Cartridge, Ribbon, Embossing Powder

Gotta CASE this one.. Well I did!

Karen Lynn inspired me on this one! She sent me a similar card for a man.
Looking at hers I imagined what could be on all the spots.. signatures!

So I cut it all out (thankfully a week before I got hurt) and mailed each piece to every (siblings, their kids and then even their kids) to sign.

Not everyone got the pieces back to me in time to present this to my om.. but I can always add them later! I just got 4 more in the mail today! YEA

I have spinners on the top, and the words coming down off the sides. "MOM" is on the bottome, "Grama and Great Grama" come down the sides.

One of my nieces lives in Germany, and I couldn't get her to sign the pieces so I put her and he children's pics on it.
