Just Magnolia First Birthday Blog Hop

Since joining a few weeks ago, I have been seeing all the terrific blog hops, blog candy and challenges and have decided to take the plunge.  I have created this card for the Just Magnolia First Birthday Blog Hop and hope that I am doing this correctly.  It looks like a lot of fun and the prize is FANTASTIC!!!   

Here is my little 'thank you' card created according to the sketch provided by Mina.  I have used this cute little Tilda with Birdcage as my Maggie stamp and used my Martha Stewart picket fence border punch.

Hope you like it!

Happy Birthday Jacque!!!

I have only been following Jacque's blog for about a month, and during that time I have been absolutely bowled over by the incredible talent of this remarkable lady.  In addition to captivating us all with her beautiful and innovative cards, she has been battling (and winning, we hope!!) cancer, undergoing chemo, and dealing with the recent loss of her dear father.

Jacque's blog is now one year old and she is giving away a wonderful blog candy creation.  To check it out, visit Jacque and take a look at all the goodies she has displayed there.

Here is a sneak peek at her birthday candy ~

My Furbabies!!

This is my all-time favourite picture of my 'furbabies' taken with my granddaughter when she was just 10 months old!  They are all getting a little older now, the pups, left to right are Tucker - 9, Jessie - 15 and Rusty - 14.  There will be a day in the not to distant future when we will have to say goodbye to the two older dogs, but until that time, they continue to provide us with a lot of love and we, in turn, let them rule the roost and we spoil them rotten!!

Thursday, April 8, 2010 goes!!!

This is my first attempt at posting to my blog and adding a picture - sure hope it works.

Here are a couple of cards that I have done  (okay, I just counted and there's seven, but I had a hard time choosing  :o{ ) - the technique is a little raw, for sure, but the more I do, the better  my style seems to get.

Please feel free to offer pointers and tips - I sure can use the help!!
