One for Melissa Pinter

To carry on from yesterday, this card was made for Melissa. Melissa is a very special Mom as we could see in the bio she gave us on Ethan. She sacrifices each day and her family to be with her son. This card is for you Melissa:

 This card was made at the same time as with Ethan's card, so I used the same cartridge for it. The outside of the card was done with Wild Card on pg 47 the phrase and the frame. I'm glad I used this cartridge because after locating the designs I wanted for this card it open up so many possibilities for other things within this cart.. Looking for specialty envelopes it's in there, Looking for frames for you sentiments it's in there, how about a variety of phrases it's in there, even a liner for the envelope and an alphabet. It's a well rounded cartridge that I plan to do more with in upcoming projects. the doily and the bird I received in a cut swap: Renee Benson and you can check out her blog at CraftyPinkNayNay it's from the Cindy Loo cartridge (need to investigate that one more too).
 The inside is out Wild Card cartridge too. Pg 44 phrase and pg 45 Icon: Smiley face which I hand cut the smiley open to give it character. So Melissa I will be getting both cards out in the mail and into your hands soon with alot of prayers in between.
 These 2 pictures are of my dogs Buddy above and Jake below, we finally had a real snow storm yesterday and these were taken while they were having fun in the snow. We got 5.25" of the white stuff and I enjoyed a day home cleaning (not enjoyed but needed done) and perusing the internet for ideas and some genealogy research. Thanks for stopping by and checking on what I've been up to.
Stop back tomorrow and see what new project I started working on, I think it's gonna be a fun week with lots of crafting to do....


  1. Love your card, the bird is wonderful. Your heelers are like my heelers they love the snow.
