Wooooooo, BOY!  I've been having the best time getting to know my new grandson, Wade Garrison, and spending time with his big brother and sister (and his mom and dad!)! I stayed at my daughter's for a few days after they came home from the hospital and was able to snap this first photo of their so-precious-to-me family:

Here are the two boys together...David is so protective of his little brother:
 And here's one of Wade at 2 days old just after getting home from the hospital:
He looks a lot like his older brother and sister....but does have lighter hair than they did.  And he's a good bit bigger than they were!
Anyway, not much time for crafting but I did make Amanda some thank you cards for her to send.

I used a Lawn Fawn stamp which I inked with Versamark and used some blue embossing powder which was heat set.  I also stamped a small heart with Versafine black ink and then heat embossed it with some clear and colored it in with a Wink of Stella glitter brush pen.  I used a circle punch and a scallop punch and then used foam dimensionals for a bit of lift.

The "thanks" is a Simon Says Stamp die.  This was probably the most time consuming part of the card as the little inside pieces of the "h", "a", "k" and "s" had to be adhered as well.  For some things "nekkid" holes work but with this pretty script...well, it needs its innards!  LOL!!!  By the way..."nekkid" is a real word.  It means "naked" but is naughtier.  Google it if you don't believe me.  I tell the truth.

Off to make another batch!

Happy Crafting!


  1. Wonderful photos & thank you cards. Like the 'thanks' die. I won $25 from Simon store at A Blog Named Hero challenge and bought some snowflakes but was considering the 'Merry Christmas' die that is like the 'thanks' die.
