PP is WALLPAPER... We've been doing wallpaper challenges this week at CC's. I added a little wooden redbird from Michaels and a half circle punched out with my CM circle punch. Sentiment stamp is by SU stamped in Craft Ink from SU. CS is by Bazzill. Machine stitched around outside edges. 6x6 size card. Quick and easy. The paper was so beautiful I hated to add more to the card.

I took photos inside for Debby today... Thought I'd post a few on my blog too.


I was in a picture taking mood today. This is a little area out front I love to decorate with the holidays and seasons.


A coworker, (SANDY) had a new grandbaby born last Friday! I made this little card for Elliot! The image is a stamp by Sugarland Stamps. I colored with Copic Markers. The little hearts I cut by hand and doodled on then outlined with my blue Copic Marker. I used my CM oval shaper maker to cut the oval shape. My original base CS was cut at 4 1/2 by 6 1/2 inches. I scored at 1/2 inch and again at 1 inch from the end. This was done at both ends. I cut another sheet of yellow Bazzill CS and did exactly the same measurements to it as well. The little ribbon was from my stash. I pop dotted the little image inside. TFL. Peggy

Debby - Overseas Original sent me a BEAUTIFUL baby card personalized for Kirin.... It is just adorable and so pretty IRL. I just love the cute little embellishments. The swiss dotted CB embossing folder is perfect for this card. I love the softness of it. Thanks Debby.... This is just beautiful.

Surgery was last WEDNESDAY for me again..... I'm doing MUCH better now. After lots of elavating my foot I finally woke up today with my numbness gone in the leg and foot! Much better now! It is very sore to walk on it, but that is all just part of the healing process. Most of you know this was SURGERY #3 for me on the same foot for the same problem! My new doctor is wonderful and I think this surgery will do the trick! The damaged nerve is now gone that should of been taken care of in the first surgery. (we won't even go there!) So I'm just concentrating on getting well so I can get back into my walking routine in our neighborhood!
Spring is in the air and I'm READY! Thanks everyone for your prayers! Hugs..... Peggy
