Thank you Veterans!

I will be sending this card to LeRoy Blessing, a dear, kind and wonderful man whom I met through my job. He served his country in the Vietnam War and I want to thank him for doing so. I used the Kraft Card Stock - it's not going away- it will be called Crumb Cake in the new Stampin' Up Catalog and Idea Book! The Stamp Set Courage was used along with the Thank You Kindly Set. I stamped with Staz-On, let it set and then colored with the water color pencils and blender pens. A piece of Close to Cocoa Card Stock was cut to add a layer and the edges were roughed up with the Cutter Kit and then sponged with some Choc Chip Ink! Linen Thread was then tied around the card to add a little something.

Miss Anna

Miss Anna, Jessica, Aunt Jackie and me- we all went to Target to get some photos of Miss Anna... we couldn't resist because she had the cutest dress on with tutu attached. The photographer was fantastic and Anna cooperated....the hard part was picking out the photos! There were so many good ones, it was hard to choose! She's such a cutie and smiled, posed, and played when she was supposed to! I just love her pinchy cheeks! Have a great day everyone and I'll get some more cards posted soon!
