If everyone has gotten as bad as me there won't be anyone to read this. I haven't posted anything or even been on Blogger in so long. I see I've picked up a few new followers, so a big Hello & Thank You to you ladies if you are reading this.
We're on countdown here- 2 weeks till first grandbaby's due date. I can't wait to hold him! And I have a feeling once he gets here my scrapbooking is going to get revived in a BIG sorta way and cardmaking may get put on the back burner just a little bit. Until then, I'm trying to get a box of cards ready to send off to OWH. Here are a few of the ones I've made lately.

This looks a lot better in person than it photographed. I liked it so much I'm going to go back and make several more like it. I'm also going to enter it over at Glu-Arts for the little OWH challenge they're doing in conjunction with We R Memory Keepers. The goal is to collect 50,000 cards by July 24th, so if you have a few extra cards in your stash, why not send them in. It's a great cause & there are some nice prizes too.

I love little boxes and so I was excited to see this new idea a couple of weeks ago at Dawn's Stampin' Thoughts. I should have made a more colorful one, but I just used some scraps I had laying around to get one made while it was fresh on my mind.

I do have baby on the brain, but not just because of my grandbaby, I am having to make a lot of baby cards because from June-August I know of 11 young ladies that are expecting, plus 3 more for Sept./Oct. I don't know what's going on.... we didn't have any snowstorms last winter.

Have a great week everyone and a safe, happy & fun-filled 4th!
