My New Door Hanger - Once Upon A Springtime

Hello!

I guess it's obvious by this time that I love this Graphic 45 paper collection! I keep finding more projects to make using these beautiful papers. This is my new Spring door hanger and I again did my favorite fussy cutting and layering and adding of Stickles for sparkle.






Thank you for visiting my blog today! I am so behind posting and even more behind in visiting other blogs and leaving comments. I hope to do some catch up this weekend! Once again it is a very warm day here in this part of WI, with humidity added today although the thunder storms keep passing us by. We were only 4 degrees from an all time record high for this date with 82 degrees and sunny. I hope that you have a nice weekend!

Hugs,

Two Cards Reversed - Once Upon A Springtime

Hello!

So much time has passed again since my last post! I have been working on projects but just have not been able to post with life getting in the way as it tends to do at times. This project was to make two thank you cards to be given to two people who worked together on the same issue and found a solution. I was very grateful for their help and wanted to make the cards special so I did the same card for each one, only in reverse of the other. 

I used my current favorite Graphic 45 'Once In A Springtime' paper collection again - fussy cutting and layering and finishing with Stickles for a little sparkle and glitter. I loved how they turned out and was very happy with the result. I hope the people receiving them liked them also. :<)


You can see the layering on the card on the left.

Thank you for visiting my blog today! We have sunshine and temperatures in the 80's today here in this part of WI - I can't believe it! So nice and although storms are forecast for later today and tomorrow, it is so beautiful outside! The windows are wide open and Jimbo is in his glory sitting in the window. I am going to look into getting a harness and leash for him so that I can take him outside for walks in nice weather. 

Tomorrow I will post my new door hanger using the same paper collection. Wishing you a good evening where you are!

It's WOYW? Wednesday and A Special Birthday

Hello!

Today is Wednesday - and "What's On Your Workdesk?" time again. I have nothing on my workdesk today - have not started any new projects. Supplies are out and ready but nothing to share,

And so instead of that photo I want to share photos of my great grand daughter who just celebrated her 3rd birthday. Isn't she beautiful? Her name is Madelyn and she lives in New Hampshire. That is a long way from this part of WI so I don't get to see her or her two brothers and her baby cousin but they are always in my heart.

Happy Birthday pretty girl!





Madelyn and her mom Tiffany. She looks exactly like her mother did when she was this age. I have 5 grandchildren - 2 girls and 3 boys - and 4 great grandchildren now - 1 girl and 4 boys - and it seems amazing.


Thank you for stopping by today to visit my blog! To see what WOYW? is all about if you haven't heard, go to http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/ to see what projects everyone is working on! I hope that you have a creative and happy day!

Hugs,

A Few Of The Easter/Spring Cards I Made

Hello!

I made quite a few Easter and Spring cards using the Graphic 45 "Once Upon A Springtime" paper collection. On each one I did fussy cutting of many of the main figures and layered them. I added glitter with Stickles for some bling - you know I love glitter - and made them in a post card style with the greeting on the back. If you click on the photo to enlarge it you can see the detail.








Thank you for visiting my blog today! It is very cloudy, rainy and cold here today in this part of WI. After the days of high 60's this is a definite change but the rain is making everything green again and flowers blossom. I love Spring the best of all of our seasons I think. Wishing you a happy day!

Hugs,

Wrapping Up Jimbo - Dryer Heat Is Good!


Hello!

Jimbo suffers from a medical condition that causes him discomfort and pain. He is now once again on pain pills twice a day, but by accident we may have found the magic medicine to help!

He always has loved the heat from the clothes just out of the dryer and jumps on the bed when I bring them back from the laundry room so he can play in them. He thinks this great fun but sometimes I don't agree. This day I took the two pair of jeans and wrapped them around him to keep him out of the other clothes until I could fold and hang them. The result was an instant and total stop from his play and a 45 minute nap for him of absolute relaxation. The heavy denim material holds in the heat and this must have been like being folded in an electric blanket.












Jimbo is a very large cat - 17 1/2 pounds now - so he is the length of the jean fold - you can see his belly picking through in the middle and his tail and foot hanging out the end. 



He was in heaven and sleeping so soundly that he even let me rest beside him on the bed without much notice. I was very happy to see him so at ease and pain free - as you can tell from the million photos I took. :<) Now I know what helps and will be using heat as therapy from now on. 








He's my buddy, no doubt of that. :<) Thank you for visiting my blog today! We have sunshine and warm temperatures today here in this part of WI. Everything is turning green and some of the flowering trees are in bloom. I love Spring! Wishing you a happy Sunday!

Hugs,
