This is the card that I made for March's shoe box card swap.

my journal for the month of April

This is my new journal that I made myself for this month. It is also incomplete and basically the same as mom's but the colors are different... I also used a sticker on mine that says, "Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure that you are." Mary Jean Irion. My idea was to use the from the garden Stamp on it and emboss it... but I have used that one a lot and I think I want to use something else. I am not sure what I want yet though. I know I want spring. I will think on it and will post more later...

mom's journal

Mom is going to Paducah for the big quilt show in a few weeks. She wanted a red journal to take with her. So I bought one today that was black and covered it with Stampin' Up's real red paper. I used a flower from and a brad and a dragonfly that I had previously purchased from Oriental trading. I still want to stamp something on the journal, but I haven't decided what I want to put on it yet. But hey I did use some embelishments. Without prompting. ::)

timmy's birthday sets.

For the birthday card I made for Timmy from Sami and I, I used Wild things. When she wakes up and gets out of my bedroom, I will get my markers and let her "write" on the card.

This is the Card he is getting from mom and dad. Nothing big, but I am not highly energetic today.
This is the wrapping paper that I made to go with mom's card. It wasn't supposed to get that many stop signs, but I somehow smeared the first red stop sign all over the paper. Red was the only color that smeared.

This was the wrapping paper that I made to go with my card.

These are the pants that I made him to go in the wrapping paper, I know it matches mom's gift much better, but I think for the last 3 yrs I have given him nothing but John Deere cards from both mom and I. The kid really really likes John Deere though. Mom made him a house coat with some tractors on it. It says, "I make dirt look good" It is so cute, I am not sure why I wrapped it without taking a picture though. Oh well.

Happy Birthday Timmy! I sure am wild about you!

Sorry I missed this one in my postings last night.

I absolutely adore this one also. It is a test tube filled with spring time m&m's. I don't want to give this one away at all. But I think if I can find 18 test tubes I will be making them for my daughters class for easter. I'll have to learn how to score then :)
