Design Team!

Special post today over at Scrapbook Blessings Club! Head on over there and see what's cooking!

Today is my sister's birthday and there is one thing she absolutely loves is a handmade card. She also loves Copic coloring. So, I colored one up special just for her!

Supplies Used:
LaLaLand Kit February 2015: Shining Star Marci and Matching Dies
Paper Smooches: Salutations
Echo Park: Captured 6x6
Want to Scrap: Silver Bling
Copic Markers
White Wink of Stella
Kaisercraft Pearls

A funny story about the white wink of stella...I really meant to use clear but did not notice until I looked down at my card and wondered what in the world white got all over my stars. I totally laughed out loud as I realized well...that would have been because I did not look at the label on the cap before starting. Note to self: Look next time!

Precious Times!

Hubby has been on vacation this week so my whole schedule has been regular schedule next week either cause he is still on vacation and this week was stay at home get stuff done kind of vacation but next week is get away together and enjoy each other and some Florida sunshine. 

Anyhow for today I have a very special post/project. Last Saturday I had the pleasure of helping my granddaughter create thank you cards for her cheer coaches and her two little friends (one her cheer sister, the other a good friend she bonded with over the season.) She has been doing competitive cheering for the past season and is quite good. I love watching her. It was absolutely precious to see this wonderful, little 10 year old come up with kind and caring messages (all different I might add) for people who had come into her life only a short time ago and quickly became like family. I am so very proud of this young lady she has the most caring and kind heart I have ever known in a 10yr old child.

We had a blast creating the cards and although Grandma helped by coming up with the ideas, Hannah was right there doing all the work herself. She even did the Copic coloring on the Marci cheerleaders all by herself.

We created 7 cards...1 for each coach (with a personal message to each one)
and 2 cheerleader cards. Hard work all in one day, but we had fun.

Design Team Day!

Thankful Thought: For my son, who almost drops everything at the drop of a hat to do things for me!
