My Newest Grandson and a big request- please vote

Many of you know that in addition to my paper crafts, I also do Machine Embroidery. One of my favorite sites for designs is having a contest right now, thru Monday the 25th of February contest. Applique Momma has some terrific designs and I've used one of my favorite for Graham's outfit. I chose to do his onesie in the tartan he is named for. Isn't he just the cutest thing. I really need you to click on the contest link and vote for my photo and my little man Graham.

thanks so much

Spring is coming....someday

A little lamb decorated basket, for Easter and a couple of cards for Mother's day or an other occasion. The rose card uses the new paper pack For Always along with a bold white daisy rosette, enhanced with the new Washi tape in slate, and last months Stamp of  the Month Rose. I've left room at the bottom right to add a small banner with a sentiment when i decides who to give this too. The banner card started with a random stamped sheet of 8.5x11 plain white cardstock, colors, olive, pear and Lagoon, a little art philosophy butterfly, stamped with the musical notes background stamped and sponged in cashmere completes the card. The nicest thing is that I still have a ton of my random stamped sheet to make some quick cards when I need too.
All the cuts from Art Philosophy, the scalloped circle is 5.5 inches, so this is large enough for some really nice surprises., If you want the cut sizes, just leave a message and I'll look them up for you.
I took this picture to show my ladies how just adding the smallest flourish to fill in the white spaces makes all the difference. click on the picture to enlarge and notice the difference between the top of the paper and the bottom.
I love comments and hope that if you like what you see, you'll leave me a little note to let me know.
