The Far Side

When I first visited Lisa at You Made Me Ink, I almost flipped out laughing.  She had drawn the funniest images and I love them.  Thanks Lisa!   Here is my card inspired by one of Lisa's drawings.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas full of love and fun -

Thanks for visiting my blog and you know your comments are so appreciated.

Joe's 8th Birthday

Today is my youngest grandson's 8th birthday.  Happy Birthday Joe!!!   Last Christmas Joe and his sisters spent a week with us and it snowed Christmas Day.  They had so much fun sledding down the mountain.  We live on top of a mountain out in the middle of no where.  There are tons of critters around which I just love.  Joe will be with us again this Christmas and we are really hoping for another great snowfall!!

Under the red and white paper clip there are 8 one dollar bills.  Of course there are 8 pennies, 8 quarters and 8 dimes.  Inside the paper bag is a secret message from Santa!!

And this is the very back - 8 nickels of course.  On the back of the secret Santa message is a special message from Nanny and Grampa Art.

I hope you got a kick out of my creation for my grandson and you know I would love to hearing from you!

Melanie's Birthday

Today is my baby sister's birthday.  So I knew exactly the card I would make for her.  It tells the story of our lives perfectly!  Melanie is nine years younger than I and YES this is exactly what she looked like.  At least I thought so!!  LOL

 Fifty-five years later we have changed somewhat and so have our attitudes.  Of course a good bottle of wine helps anything!

So today we celebrated by having lunch in a really neat Japanese restaurant.

This is the back of the card.  My sister loved it and so did I!

Thanks for visiting and  I would love to hear what you think of my sister's birthday card!
