Sentimental Sundays–Masculine Projects

The new challenge at the Sentimental Sundays blog is “Masculine Projects”. Don’t forget to include a sentiment.

I used the challenge as an opportunity to make a birthday card for my Dad. It also gave me the perfect excuse to ink up one of my new Lili of the Valley stamps.

I hope you will join in the fun and link up your Masculine Project on the Sentimental Sundays blog. Stop by the blog to see the rest of the inspirations projects from the DT and to download the weekly free sentiment set from Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs.

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
