Lauren, you nailed it when you said she is a fabulous mummy!! She most definitely is the one that allowed me into her "stuff" all those years ago when we use to spend hours walking and picking wild flowers and pressing them into our homemade flower presses. Experimenting with anything we found to see how it would turn out. Some not so good!! She encouraged me when I wanted to try something different.....didn't always turn out as I imagined it in my head.....but she never told me I couldn't do it. And as for the best Gram.....just ask my boys!! They still talk about going to Grandma's to craft with her. They would go searching for the perfect rock to paint. Stroll through the old abandoned house just down from their cabin to see what 'treasures' they could find......try and sit as quiet as a church mouse on the chairs on the decks as the hummingbirds would drink from the feeders hanging overhead.....yup.....she's one of a kind and I wouldn't trade her for ANYTHING!!! I am so very blessed.

Okay now Mom.....I'll warn everyone in Kelowna that your head may be a little bigger than normal for the next few days.....lol. Love ya!

Good morning ladies!! It's cold and raining outside so I think it's definitely a crafting day!! YAY! I had one of my grandson's stay the night last night so it was a bit earlier morning than usual....lol. I really need to get caught up with some blog posts, so I think that may be first on my list of things to do today! What does everyone else have planned for the day?

Have a window scene in my head ( thanks to Lauren ) and haven't used my corner punch for ages ( Lisa) and Yvonne with her paper bags well what is a girl to do first...

I'm going to a trade show with one of my DIL's this aft! Haven't been to one of those in a while. It's just at a small town about 10 minutes away so it won't be too big. It'll be a nice outing on a cool and rainy day though! I want to work on some more cards too, and I still have some cards to post to my blog!! I don't think I'll have enough time in one day to accomplish all of that!! lol

I went to ACMoore and Michaels today! I haven't been there in weeks! I see ACM is now selling alcohol markers...can't remember the whole name but the last part is Noir....They are $12.99 for a six pack of color families. I bought a few more prismas and two of the same 6x6 paperpacks since I loved the paper. It is by Mind's Eye. It says "Stella and Rose" and it also says "Hattie Papers so I'm not sure of the name, but I love the paper. They only had two packs or I'd have bought more! Can't spend too much because I have SU card class on May 5th. I just ordered five markers on the retired list. I don't want to buy a whole pack when I only need one or two colors...I would guess I have 85-90% of their markers now.

Wow way to go shopping Kathy! So far I have refrained from buying markers as I suck at coloring! LOL But I am so envious of people who do it so effortlessly!
My fingers finally thawed out and I made a couple of cards but the lighting is so dismal here I didn't take any pics. Maybe I'll have something for the next challenge when I find out what it is.

From my last post: Those markers that ACM is selling are called Spectrum Noir. They look a lot like copics....

If you use coupons at ACM, you could get them for as little as $1.12 each! They are $12.99 for a pacage of six and sometimes you can get 50% off coupons (had one today).

Good morning. Haven't had time to go back and read posts, but see Marion's card....Love Love Love it!

Need to get the morning started with breakfast and waiting to hear from my DD who lives in Ohio; she wrecked her car yesterday; said no one was hurt, but now she has no way to get around; she's a single mom, college student, living off campus...I'm trying to wrap my head around it and figure out someway to help...she has been through so much the past few years, I'm just heart-broken that this has happened because her life has started to get back on track. We'll figure something out.

Oh Vicki, I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter. Sending you hugs my friend. I'll add her to my prayer list for sure.

Well, I'm hoping to get into my craft room for the day again. I really need to get things cleaned up and organized again.....I'm starting to have the lateral filing system happening again and just DOESN'T work too well for me!

Heart New Challenge for 29 April

Well I did not hear who was doing the Challenge this week,so I am going to jump right in and give you all another one of Lauren's challenges.

Wooo Hooo this takes no imagination of pictures to get you going.... just go to my bloggie and have a looksie...

Yep you gotta make a card or something with flowers on it, but you cannot use roses or rosettes, ok???

Yes that is flowers, no roses or rosettes!!!

So get going and make a flower to put on your card, oh ok you can take one out of a packet if you want, I was joking about the making!!!

Have fun girls!!!

Okay, Lauren. Does this qualify...it's a "push" to call these flowers but...!

This is an attempted CASE of KittieKraft.

It so happens I just finished a scrap page for DGD book and I put my one and only handmade raffia flower on it. I've not posted to my gallery or blog, but here's a looky (I found the directions on you tube on how to make the raffia flower)

Thank you Lauren for posting a challenge. I will see what I can do. This could be difficult since I am not good with flowers.

Vickie, so sorry to hear of DD's accident. Glad she's okay. Will keep her in my prayers.
