Link Up Love Party with K Andrew

The link up love party is a way to get to know each other and find new blogs and inspiration. What a wonderful way for us to get to know a little about each other. K Andrew has a wonderful blog that is full inspirational thoughts and crafty posts and lots of give a ways. I have spent a good chunk of my afternoon just reading her past posts. You can check it out here This is a recipe book that I made one for my brother and 2 sisters. My mother passed away in Dec 2009 and this is a collection of her hand written recipes. It was both a joyous and tearful project for me.

My Card for the More Than One Fold Challenge at Prairie Fairy Fridays

This is a graduation card that I made for my niece. The flaps fold in overlapping each other with the tabs securing the fold. The letters that I used are a mirror like silver so they didn't photograph very well. I also rolled up the 'gift' like a diploma. I have used this fold for birthdays and other celebrations. I have entered it into the #53 challenge 'More Than One Fold'. Although I don't think it is up to the rest of the cards I have seen. OMG they are so gorgeous. I am just beginning and am in complete amazement at what all you crafters out there can do. But I am learning a little at a time and hopefully I will catch up to you.

Made it myself Mondays

I made this card for my sisters dog. It is her birthday this month. It seems that in my family we remember the important times in our lives through our pets. They are after all very important to us!
