A Couple Of Pictures

Well, I've talked so much about my grandpa that I thought I'd show you a picture of him. Did I say how great it was to see him? Yeah...I know, I did. I just can't help saying it again though! I look like a total dork in this picture but I'm happy to have it anyway! I also got a four generation picture with my son, dad, grandpa and me. Did I tell you that my grandpa is my mom's dad? Do you think we look alike at all? This is the first time I've really noticed that we do have some features in common! How neat!

I know you don't come here for pictures of me so how about a picture of a card that I made before I left for my trip. This is a pocket card. They are so super easy to make! Here is what you do. Cut your card stock so it is 4 1/4 x 11, score at 5 1/2 and then 1 1/4 inch from one end. The insert is about 4 1/2 x 3 1/2. So easy and they are so cute! Here I used Close to Cocoa, Pink Passion, Very Vanilla, and Linen Prints paper. I used the stamp set is Garden Whimsy and I used part of one of the stamps from Stem Sayings for the happy birthday. Oh, and also the new Posy background stamp! Ink is Pink Passion, Close to Cocoa, and Basic Black. Accessories: Gel Pen and the Spring Flower Bouquet Punch. Where is the punch used you may ask? Well, behind the little ladybug image. I didn't have a scalloped circle that was the right size so I punched out a ton of the little flowers and layered them on the back. I really like how it turned out!

Hope you enjoy this pocket card and that you try one of your own! :0)

Another note: You soooo don't look like a dork. I don't think you could look like a dork even if you tried!
