I love Nature!

I took these pictures a few days ago.

This is a little wrens nest that was built in a bucket hanging on my back porch.

The eggs hatched, we have babies

Ummm...grasshoppers for breakfast!


There is a mom and a dad.  They take turns feeding and distracking.  It is fun to watch them.

Aren't cardinals beautiful?

Sewing Baby Stuff

OK, last post today.  I wanted to show you what I made this past weekend.  This cute little baby outfit and a mathing headband. I made the rolled rosettes out of coordinating fabric.  I also Made a nursing cover.  You can't really see the detail because my daughter wouldn't model it for me, but she held it up!  But it has a strap that goes around your neck. Now I am on to making a diaper bag.  Hope I get that one done before the baby arrives! 

Birthday Card

My dear friend Rolanda Patton took me to lunch on Friday for my Birthday (I won't tell you which one it is).  We went to Mi Cocina and had a very nice time on the patio eating brisket tacos and drinking Mambo Taxi's.  This is the Birthday Card she made for me. She Used the stamp set, Betsy's Blossoms and the new In Color Summer Starfruit and the Bitty Banners stamp set and framelits.  Isn't it beautiful?

World Treasures

All of the Demonstrators who earned the Disney Trip this year got this stamp set while we were there.  I made some samples to have on my display board at Open House..  I will share some other stamp set samples with you over the next few days!  And as you all know I love to CASE. (copy and share everything)

I used the new In Colors Primrose Petals and Gumball Green.  Notice the white textured piece?  This is the new Fancy Fan Embossing Folder.  I also used the scrumptious Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon and markers.

Kellan's First Birthday- Dr. Sues

OK, so I am really behind, because we celebrated Kellan's Birthday on June 2nd!!  But I really wanted to post a few pics of my Cutie Pie!  I had fun decorating for Kellan's party.  We used some of the left overs from his baby shower! We cooked hot dogs and had birthday cake.  It was a very nice party.

I made a banner with SU Designer Paper (now retired) and the big shot

I also made a fabric banner to hang from the trees with my Big Shot
