2 Crafty Critter Crazies - Challenge #15

Hello Friends,

It's June! Where I live (Prince Edward Island, Canada), that means the likelihood of snow is minuscule and, with any luck, we can plant a few things in our gardens. It also means the start of a new challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies. This month we are sponsored by Sparkle N Sprinkle and I used their image called, "Ice Cream Dog" to make an encouragement card.
This image reminded me of my present dog, Samson, in appearance, and of my previous dog, Kaeli, who loved ice cream.
Thanks for dropping by. I appreciate your visit and look forward to reading your comments.

Hugs & smiles,

Christmas Again #2

Hello Friends,

Yesterday I share some pics from my 2017 Christmas. Today I want to show you the gift I made for my darling Mother-in-law. I got the wooden Christmas tree form from Michael's and the photos from my sisters-in-law. I added the wooden star to the top.
That is Mom when she was a young woman
Christmases past - our kids and Mom's - on 2nd & 3rd tiers
I made the tiny gifts with heavy-weight patterned paper.
The bottom tier has pics from the growing up years of Mom's kids
The last of her nine babies
School years
The teen years
Thanks for stopping in. I appreciate your visit and look forward to reading your comments.

It's Christmas Again.

Hi Friends,

I am finally getting around to posting some pics from Christmas 2017. First I will share some of my Christmas decor and then tomorrow I will post the gift I made for my MIL.

Here is my Christmas wreath. My 2016 Advent art journal (made with used Christmas cards) is in the center. There is a daylight pic and a nighttime pic.

And here is my nativity scene - day and night.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you drop in tomorrow to see the gift I made for Mom.

Blessing hugs,
