I'm a braggin - My grandson Jackson, will be going to Madison for Kindergarten in the fall! He was so excited to get to go to Kindergarten Round-up. He may get to ride a bus and EVERYTHING!!! I do worry about him because like his grandma judy, he's so shy and quiet. He does know a couple of the other kids from his Squirts Soccer and T-ball. That poor teacher! Do you think I should warn her or just let her find out for herself???!!!! Been getting quite a bit of exercise! Putting away my stuff and picking up branches! I love our old trees but in the spring there is a lot of work cleaning up from ice storms and high winds! Then in the fall picking up all those yellow and crimson leaves is back breaking... but in between the wonderful shade for the deck and back yard and the light twinkling thru those big beautiful maple leaves is wonderful!!!
Hope you have been able to check out all the bee-u-tiful cards that are linked to Jingle Belles Rock and Betty Bee's Buzz. They are awesome and so inspirational! Gotta copy em!!!
Hope your week has been wonderful! Take time to smell the flowers and watch those robins! Spring is coming to Michigan..... I think pretty soon it should be here.... well ok, maybe.... lol

these are my 2 cards for the Baby Card challenge at Betty Bee's Buzz. Betty has a gorgeous granddaughter and another on the way shortly! so we are all a-buzz about b-babies!!! Honeybee Courtney did an adorable shaped onesies card and then challenged us for extra points to include a onesies in our card or project.
So card #1 is a onesies from my Expression Cartridge Life's a Beach. For background a used a cuttlebug heart embossing folder in pealized blue color. The onesies is on a 3" black square that I punched Martha Stewart Heart corners. Then at a garage sale... in the FREE bin... I found this handmade lace. The lady took rickrack and wound it together to make the center section then hand crocheted the top edge and bottom shell borders!!! it's very cool in person!!! She said they used to put them on pillow cases!!!
For Card #2 - I used my Life's a Party Cartridge. I did Iris folding for the giraffe's tummy after blocking out his neck, legs and tail.... I used my copics to highlight the head.... I'm thinking I might redo it with a iris fold or blockin out too... not sure I like the yellow head floating above the body... what do you think???
Thanks for looking! Hug your babies! even if they're grown, every day let someone know how special they are to you!!!
