Time really doesn’t stand still. Hard to believe this sweet Kelly girl is already 2. Birthdays are a big deal when there is a big brother,three big sisters and one little sister. My oh my what a fun time. Of course this Bebe has to get creative. I just want them to know I love them enough to give it a go with something that you can’t get anywhere else except out of Bebe’s craft room. The pop-up- card is made with Mini Mouse stickers as well as the tunnel book. Catch that smile….worth more than anything in my book.
I know all grandmothers think their grands are special but MINE REALLY ARE!
Seems like a round every corner this week there was something to direct my attention in another direction. One of my blog friends has a WIP blog day. ( that is work-in- progress) this seemed to be a good indication maybe my blog should participate. I need all the direction someone can muster up. So ….after pictures ,which I have often forgotten to take, I was well on my way. Then the first redirection took place.
My son came to remove three large pine trees that had given up .That is him in the bucket at the top after felling the very top. Then everything was going well until he needed to move the truck. Soft dirt…mud and one very stuck big truck. Story ended well. After a lot of ” country folk thinking’ we and yes I said we managed to get her moving again. Do you know what a wrecker would have cost? Well…we weren’t going there. Now there are two large deep holes in my yard but the truck is back in service. We will deal with the holes another day.
Back with the WIP. There has been progress there too. It isn’t finished just yet. Waiting for Nuvo Drops to dry but here you can see there has been a change. The first photo is the die cuts ready for color and the second photo ,in the top , is the almost finished card. You can see the Nuvo Drops drying on the right. Mini Mouse you see…yes that is the next
detour of the week. There is a second birthday coming up and this grandma had no idea what to do for this sweet grand-daughter . As luck would have it, and I really don’t believe in luck as such ,there on email this morning was a new idea for a tunnel book. Now I did one for Little Cobs at Christmas ,you can check archives for that, and didn’t even think about doing it again but BINGO! Just in time to save this grand from looking pretty piteful at the Mini Mouse party. Now I know I could just go to the store and buy a gift but I hope a handmade gift from this gran will someday make them proud to say” My Bebe made this just for me”. Later when it is finished I’ll let you in on the final project. I hope it turns out like I think it will, but you never know.
I you don’t know about the few remaining hours at Tom’s 2500 party day go check it out.
You can find him at BeyondtheSphere or tlmerriman.wordpress,com I’m not sure how to link his blog but you are smart and can find it.
Until these projects are finished do have a good rest of the weekend and new week. Remember…This is the Lord’s day…REJOICE! ps. it is also a week until Easter…the real Lord’s day and I for one am so very thankful what what He did for me.
