For My Uncle

This week I received a nice card from an Uncle of mine. It was really nice thank you note but it made me think about that I rarely if ever send cards to men in my family? I'm so used to just sending to my Mom and Aunts. I decided to make this card for my Uncle and reply with a card back to him. This is some of my favorite CTMH Creative Basic papers - Silhouette. Of course, I had to use A Tweet. There have been some pretty little humming birds outside my office window, great inspiration! The card sketch is from this week's challenge at Paper Players #65. Supplies: CTMH Creative Basics Silhouette, Ink Desert Sand, Bamboo, Black; Stamps A Tweet, Creative Bloom Flowers

Oh my goodness, this is so pretty. I think your uncle will appreciate it a lot! That bird is so sweet, and I love the neutral palette! Thanks for playing with the Paper Players this week!

Beautiful masculine card! You are so right- I will have to make a card for my Dad today- I've made 2 to send to my Mother in the past week,.....

What a pretty card! I love the colors and that sweet little bird. Thanks so much for joining the Paper Players this past week!

I've Arrived!

In my usual fashion, late but with a GREAT story to tell. I didn't join the bloggers of the world until now because what would I have to share, at the time, I didn't think anything...well...I've changed my mind. I do want to share with all my friends and family-- my thoughts, creations and ideas. So, welcome to my World.

We'll Live, Love and Laugh 4 Life together!

Looking out the Living Room Window I realized today was a good day to get those projects I've been putting off DONE! It was beautiful to look at but I sure didn't want to get out in it this morning! Good thing I was on vacation.
