Happy Birthday My Sweet Kahuna


Hello again.  I know the last post for my July 4th card said I was back, but it didn't work out that way.  It seemed like the ole' bronchitis had a hold of me and just wouldn't let go.  Still have a touch of something respiratory going on but living in Coastal South Carolina, everyone does.

I actually have been quite busy, but can't show you everything just yet.  It is a surprise for my DGD's Sweet 16 Birthday.  I don't want to post it until I give the gift to her, but check back.  I can tell you it is a scrapbook that I make for all of my Grans when they turn 16.  I started it with my first and now they all expect it.  Jealous little buggers aren't they.  Ha Ha.

My post today is a  darling new image I found over at Mo's Digital Pencil called Gloria At The Pool. She looks just like me, I promise.  I colored her up with my Copic's,  fussy-cut her out and  glued her to the top of a black box made from card stock.  The little dog on the tag is as DeNami Design stamp.  You know I would include my little Bonnie on her Daddy's box, didn't you.  The box is very plain but this is for my DH's birthday and he doesn't like all the frills and fru-fru's, but we tucked lots of love inside.   It is filled with handwritten Birthday wishes and special notes from his family.    

The sentiment tag was created on the computer by my dear friend Jeni of Flip Flop Creations.  She, being the sweet doll-baby she is, came over after work on Saturday to help me figure out how to do circular text in MS Word 2010.  I updated my computer a few months back and could not, for the life of me figure out how to do what I easily did with my 2003 version. Well we tried this and that and finally found a tutorial that would work.  Guess what?  Yep, simple and easy if you know where to look.   Thanks sooooooo much Jeni.

Hope this post finds you all happy and doing well.  I have been neglecting my blogging buddies, but promise to get around to all of you this week.  Take care and thanks for popping in to see what I have been up to.

  12. Hi Linda!! Yikes...I have been worried about you! I had no idea where you'd gone...so sorry you caught that nasty resp. bug! Just take care of yourself!! I'm so tickled to see you're making cards...and even more excited to see your granddaughter's 16th b-day gift. I can't wait. What a brilliant idea...not for me, of course, since I hate scrapbooking!! It;'s such a huge commitment! How many grandkiddos do you have? Oh...your card...hmmm...well, let me say that I love it! Brilliant coloring and design work. Oh...and you and I must be twins 'cuz I look just like Gloria too! Seriously...what are the odds?! LOL! Have a great week, sweet friend!! And feel better!
