MoJo43 & OCCC !!!

Another hetic week and didn't get much done in cardmaking.
So glad our big catering for the Ladies Aux.this past week
went off without any problems.We are all finish till the fall.
I am also on vacation this week, and will be going away for a
couple of days, but hoping to get caught up on a few projects.
Today was kind of a lazy day for me, I mostly lazed around the house
and tonight I put together this card for Julee's Mojo34.
It also qualifies for OCCC challenge, where you had to use Basic grey
pattern paper.
I just recently got this paper and its so pretty, I couldn't wait to cut into it.
I also used Verve's petals & stems stamp. I can't seem to put this stamp away.
I reach for it all the time.

Basic Grey "Sugared Collection".
Verve stamps, MA ribbon, Mm rhinestones,
Scallop border using fiskars threading water punch.

The sketch this week is Kazans.What a beautiful
sketch.If you haven't checked out their blog, then
please go and do so.They post a new sketch every Monday.

was this paper from MM"Be Inspired".I knew I had to use it for
this card.

Here are the details;Black cardstock and a piece of MM paper
cut using the curve edge of the paper.A piece of black trim from my stash and then a piece of black ribbon layered over the trim.Creative Imaginations epoxy flowers with rhinestone centers and sentiment to finish off the card.

granddaughter Avery visiting me for awhile and it was so
I started this card before the visit and didn't get it finish,
I tried several times this past week and just couldn't
get my mojo to work.So , today I finally got it finished.

My Sweet Angel!!

To all my blogging friends, I haven't posted anything
in over a week because I was spending time with my precious
angel, My granddaughter Avery.
My DS, DDIL and my beautiful DGD were visitng me from Ont.
She is 6 mths old and so adorable, I couldn't get enough of her.
She is such a sweet little angel,so very pleasant and full of smiles.
I loved bathing her , feeding her, and holding her, kissing her.
Was so sad to see her leave.
I am planning on visiting her in Sept.I can't wait to hear her call
me Nan.

I took many pics of her, but I so loved these pics of her.
MY son brought CD's of pics and I saved them to my PC.
These 2 pics were taken just before they came home.

I will be back later with some cards. I started some cards before the
visit but didn't get time to finish them.
