It's a GHOUL!

Or should I say GIRL!
 
I have a brand-spankin' new granddaughter!
 
Harper Skye
was born Tuesday morning!
 
And she is a cutie!
 
Forgive my cheesy smile.  I just had a hard time containing my excitement!
 
  7 hours old...
Mother and baby are doing great!
 
GREAT-Grandma, Hayden, and Harper.
 
They came home on Friday, and I was able to spend the weekend feeding and changing, and burping and cooing....
 
 Hayden even set the TV remote aside long enough to hold and feed his little sister.
We'll see how long that lasts!
 
3 days old...
 
I wish we could bundle them up tight and keep them like this forever!
 
Now I have a grandson and granddaughter, so I suppose life is pretty great!
I can only imagine how some of you with TONS of grandchildren do it!

"Something Spooky"

Yep, there's some real spookiness going on over at
 
The challenge is to create something spooky for the holiday!
 
Easy enough with all those terrific images out there!
 
I chose to use one of my favorite sponsors,
Saturated Canary!
She's gorgeous and rather scary at the same time!
 
 
 
Image used:
"Withering Fairy"
 
Colored with Copics, and paper used is Graphic 45.
 
Have fun, and create something really scary! LOL!

Fall Float!

House Mouse
"Fall Flight"
 
Whether she's sailing downward, or across the sky like in this card,
this little guy appears to be having the time of his life!
 
Love these leaves and the adorable expression on her face!
 
 
This card is entered in the Blog Hop Challenge at
"Anything Goes with Twine"
They have some great prizes and the designers have offered up many of their own
goodies as giveaways!
Who doesn't want to win some House Mouse?!
Have you seen the new Gruffies?  CUTE!


It's TIME!

I know I have mentioned my grandson many times on my blog,
and even posted layouts of him.
NOW, I am waiting to hear about the birth of my second grandchild,
a girl this time!
 
Hayden will have a new, little sister!
 

I am a little over the top today!

My immediate family grows bigger!  Yeah!
 
(I only wish my dad were still here to meet our new member.
But I know he's watching and very happy, too!)
 

I never imagined I would be this excited,
but the timing is terrific!
I am feeling great, have regained my weight from
my earlier illness,
and can't wait to see and help care for this new little bundle!
 
I will, for sure, be posting some pictures soon!
Thanks for the few of you who DO visit my  blog and read all my rantings at times!
 
I truly appreciate you!
 
Be back soon with photos of the new
baby girl!
(And hopefully she'll have a name by then!)

Are you scared yet?

Dustin Pike has done it again!
The new August release is full of adorable (and frightening!) Halloween images!
As always, each with it's own whimsical twist.
 
See all the new images and find out how you can get hundreds of terrific digitals images at
Here is my card made with one of those cute guys!
 
 
 
Isn't he just too scary?  LOL!
I would have preferred to use cheese cloth, but all my scrapping supplies are pretty much packed in boxes at the moment.
The tissue paper worked fairly well as mummy wrapping,
don't you think?
 
Have a great day, and join us over at the
anytime for a challenge and chance to win some images!
We've been on vacation, but the fun is about to begin again!

New Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge!

Well, here I am!
Finally ready to buckle down again and start creating on a regular basis!
You have no idea how happy I am to feel well enough to be making projects again!
 
As a new design team member of
Stampin' for the Weekend,
 I have this adorable Stamp Fairy image card in celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 
Everyone hears every day how important it is to get your yearly mammogram, but how many people actually follow through each and every time?
I purposely have mine on or around my birthday in November, which means it's just around the corner.  I will be calling and scheduling my next visit very soon.


The image is Stamp Fairy's  "Molly Fairy 3", and my papers are
DCWV, Birthday Wishes 6 x 6 Stack.
I love coloring with my Copics, but felt this little gal needed a nicely printed fussy-cut dress.
 

 
 Inside of card!

 
 
Please join us at Stampin' for the Weekend for the current challenge,
"Anything Goes".
The sponsor is Stamp Fairy, so if you have any, we'd love to see them! 
 
Also, don't forget to have your mammogram when it is due.
The life you save could be your own.
 
 
Thanks for looking today!
Please leave a comment and become a follower!
I love to see how many people are actually out there reading this!
