Come out!  Come out!  Wherever you are!

I finally found my way back to my blog!  Oh how I have missed blogging with my cyber friends.  I am determined to figure out this blog posting thing so as I may join in future blog hops. I joined an amazing yahoo group VC Rocks and want to share some of my creations.  In a final plea for help I purchased a book written by Heather Wright - Porto titled Beginning Google Blogger.  My fear of 'all that techy stuff'' is being tossed in the can and I am ready for this challenge!!

I have been doing a bit of crafting.  My upline, Michelle Bushey Deslandes, shared a really cute card at our Cards for Cancer benefit and I couldn't leave it alone.  I had to play with the color combination until I came up with the "just right" look.  My winning combo:  Cajun Craze and I Dig You!!  Such an easy card to put together don't you think?

 As is was crafting and visiting with my sister who is in Vermont from Virginia, I needed a 'girlie' card for her to send back to a special little girl at home.  I remember seeing lots of ideas to make a cheerleader girl using punches.  Though I wasn't sure exactly what punches were used I did manage to put one together using her favorite color purple.  I can't wait to have time to play around with this idea some more soon!

 Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

I love my amazing daughter
Graduation Announce for my daughter

Just yesterday I was holding her on my lap and singing lullaby's in her ear as she gazed at me with the unconditional love shared between a mother and daughter.  As I sat amongst stacks of Stampin' Up card stock I found myself wandering through time ... we have shared so much over the past 18 years.  I fight the tears as I think about the changes we are in for as my daughter prepares for her High School graduation.  I have been trying to get her invitations made (not easy working with card stock and ink when you have a tear escape every now and again!)  I hope she treasures them as they were made from the heart!
