A few of the ladies I get together with to scrap with once a month had a challenge to create this tri-fold card. This is my submission. i think it came out pretty cool!! I used the "Storybook" Cricut cartridge for the Thank You and the "When It's Cold Outside" cartridge for the snowflakes.

Owl Quilt

Wow, it has been a long time since I last blogged. I will try to do better.
I was able to finish this quilt in time for Christmas as it is a gift! (I was a little worried about finishing it in time) I really like the way it turned out and it is soo soft. I hope the recipient enjoys it.

Priceless Gem

I have inherited a priceless gem. This bracelet once belonged to my great grandmother and has printed on the individual heads, the names of all of her grandchildren and great grandchildren as of the date it was given to her. My dad, my brother and I are on there.

Guess who I had lunch with today?

Yep, my granddaughter! Jillian called and asked if I could take Arianna lunch today as she had to wait for the plumber. I told her that I would love to! We had McDonald's ~ she a double cheeseburger, plain and me a McRib sandwhich! What a great break in the middle of the day!

Here are a the quilts I made for Amara and Arianna. They are now ready for Christmas giving ~ Jillian, don't share these pictures with them!
The kitty is for Amara.
And the butterfly is for Arianna. I love the way they came out. They are now ready to go into the washer so the edges fray up really nice. They are made from flannel and are uber soft!

What a great day!

Yesterday was a great day. The 1st part of the day was spent with friends, scrapbooking, talking and sharing!! I finished a card for Jillian's birthday (see post below) and this layout!
The layout was from a class that I took this past year. Remember, this is the year of use it up and I have truly been making a dint in the kit stash I have.

The second part of the day was spent with family for Jillian's birthday. Then into late in the evening, I was sewing and working on a quilt - pictures to follow!!

Happy Birthday Jillian

Today was Jillian's birthday. We celebrated by a dinner at the Lone Star Steak House.
Happy Birthday dear, sweet Jillian! You are the best daughter a mother could ask for.
This is the card I made for Jillian's birthday. The card looks like a flower pot and the flowers come up to reveal the birthday wishes. (Thanks for the inspiration Eva!)
