I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries.

Have A Grape Day

Good Morning and Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you had a great weekend...we sure did! We went to Epcot Friday night and of course the baby shower was Saturday. We had such a good time at the shower and the kids got so many nice gifts. I won 2 prizes! The first for knowing the most about Kenny and's a mom's job to be nosey isn't the other for closest guess for how many M & M's in the baby bottle. My guess was 283 and there was 291. I'll be back a little later to post some pictures so be sure to stop back.

My mom asked me to make her a card to send to my uncle (her brother) who is in a nursing home. She was no help with what she wanted and as hard as I tried, I couldn't make her understand that I wanted her to take a look at my blog to give me some idea. She is even more computer illiterate than me (can you believe that) and doesn't know how to access the internet. This is what I came up with...super quick and easy. The image is an oldie but a goodie from The Cutting Cafe. Fruit Greetings comes with 6 images with sentiments---
Here is the recipe---
Card Size: 4.25"x4.25" Note Card
Paper Pieced
Image/Sentiment: Cutting Cafe-Fruit Greetings
Nestibilities: Petite Oval
Cuttlebug: Swiss Dots
Punch: EK Dotted Scallop Edge
Accessories: Ribbon, Craft Ink, Heart Charm, Foam Pop Dots
Base Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: Unknown (sorry Eunice)

That's it for now but I'll be back a little later to post some pictures from the baby shower. Don't forget about the 2 for 1 special from The Cutting Cafe...You've got until midnight tonight to grab some of the files that you have on you wish list!

Well, you did a great job Kelly, this is awesome, he will definitely love it and men's cards are so hard to do! Nice time you seem to have had at the baby shower party! We don't do those here unfortunately .. it would be nice. Once though I did go to one.. but all we did was eat at a restaurant and gave her presents!
