Father's Day Cards and a life update

Hi everyone, Sorry that I've been away for a bit. I had back surgery on May 3 2016. So I haven't been able to craft as much as I want. With that being said my oldest daughter Desiree' and my nephew Kyle did come to my rescue so that I could get my swap cards and my Father's Day cards done. If it wasn't for either one of them I never would have finished!!
So I thought I would put some on here so you cold see what all we have done. This one is for my one of my best friends whose getting married at the end of this week. I have know Mark since we were in the Seventh Grade.
This cute image is from  I made it for my Secret Sister.
This is my mom's birthday card for the month of June.

And last but surly not least, this is the card that I made for my dad Loman. He is a Choctaw Indian. So I found this image to be very fitting indeed.

First Time

Hi everyone, Thought I would let you know what I have been up to lately. Since today is April 1 2016, I can finally let you know and show you. I belong to a group of wonderful women and every three months or so we do a draw for a secret sister. Well my secret sister wanted something that would remind her of the 5 babies that she has lost. So I tried my hand at a Mixed Media Canvas. I was really scared. I have watched Vicky Papaioannou for several years now and have always loved what she has done and wanted to try my hand at mixed media.
It actually turned out pretty nice, not bad for my first time and better yet my secret sister and her husband loved it! So now that she has it I can show you. Here it is. What do you all think?
The quote is from the Velveteen Rabbit.
Well until next time, I hope everyone has a wonderful day.

February's Cards

Hi everyone, I thought I would just pop in here real quick and post a few pictures of the cards that I made for February.
I had 4 birthday's in February. 1 niece and 3 grandchildren. Boy was I busy running around like a chicken with her head cut off trying to get all these cards done. I was so glad when it is was said and done!  This one is for my niece.
The second card is for my grandson and the third card is for my grand daughter. Sadly to say I ran out of time to make the last card which was for my other grandson who was turning 1. Boy did I cry. My daughter kept telling me that it was no big deal and that he would never even know anyways, but I know.  Well the three that I did get done did at least turn out how I planned so I was happy about that.
Well until next time...
Thanks for stopping by,

MIA SO Sorry

Hi everyone, I am so very sorry that I have not been attending my site lately. My life has been really hectic! With the whole family being really sick for months and then in February my son-in-law ended up in the ICU in Reno. They didn't think he was going to make it for a while there and they didn't know what was wrong with him. They kept running all kinds of tests and they kept coming back negative. Finally they figured it out, He had Spinal and Viral Meningitis. He is home now and back to work and slowly I am getting back to normal as well. I have been trying to stay busy and I have been working on a lot of projects. I'm just so sorry that I haven't been posting them on here. So here it goes. I am going to get back into the swing of things.

In January I had 2 birthday's 1 for my nephew who just turned 1 and for my oldest granddaughter who is now 10.
I really love how they both turned out!!
Well I am going to sign off of here for now but I promise I will be back a whole lot sooner.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
