Can you believe we are starting February this week? Glory Be, time is flying!
I wanted to share a couple cards I made for fun and for weekly challenges today. And I also wanted to share some Life Updates each month, so those are at the end of today’s post. This is a big post, so grab your cuppa and enjoy!
First off, both cards are made from this month’s Simon Says Card Kit. I love this kit!!
The papers are so fun and they really did a great job coordinating the papers! This pink patterned paper is awesome!! YAY!!
For this one, I played with the sketch at Paper Players . I loved with Amy Rysavy did with her stickers so I did a similar things with them on the kraft cardstock. I die cut the hearts from vellum so they were faintly there.
I love how this card turned out!! I really need to get some more of this patterned paper!!
January flew by for us!! While we didn’t have basketball taking up our weekends, we were able to enjoy more time at home!
January marked a whole year since mom had her stroke and it’s crazy to me how quickly that time flew by. Thankfully, she is doing well. In January Dad also got the all clear from his cancer that took over their fall. It was a crazy time for them, so seeing them both flourish now in January has been great!!
And speaking of the spry ones. January brought Aunt Gene’s 98th birthday. We celebrated with her a couple times at the Nursing home. She loved it and was up and moving.
I snapped this photo of her and my Grandpa who is 94. (She is my mom’s Aunt, this is my Dad’s dad. )
Weather has been typical of MT. Cold and snowy in the am, warm in the pm. LOL… Thankfully, we’ve missed the major storms and right now, we hardly have any snow. But we did enjoy it while we could.
I used spray paint to paint on my spring flowers.
We were able to finally meet our sweet Great Niece this last weekend. She has some fiery red hair and it’s adorable. She looks just like her big brother. It was really fun to snuggle and visit them all.
I am still hoping to get a trip to Billings in next month and more snuggles.
I also thought I would add a couple Origami Owl Updates to my Monthly Updates post. If you want regular updates, join my VIP group on Facebook. Otherwise, I will only share what’s going on in my Monthly Life Update posts.
