Before the deadline passes, I really, really want to play over at Color Throwdown. I'm rather enamored with this palette, and knew I just had to make a card. Or, in my case, several cards before I made one that didn't end up in the recycle bin! Lol. Went all CAS on this one. But first, check out the color palette:
Totally yummy or what?! After several attempts, this is the one I liked best:
Now, for some reason, the card didn't photograph well today; I'm blaming the overcast morning when I took this...The snowflakes are really a shiny silver, and my sister Sue punched them out for me a long time ago; I've been hoarding them... The polka dot strip is a bit of Washi tape, the greens are just scraps, and I used my NBUS SSS "Merry Christmas" die. The smaller white panel is popped up with foam tape. Now there's a new toy I'm loving! Keep reading, if you want to see some fun little kidlets...
First up is Avery. She just turned 2 months old and is as cute as can be. She loved her Uncle Tad, and of course, her grandma!
What a smile!
Next is Kaylin. She'll be two on the 11th, and what a smart little girl. Her vocabulary is extensive, and her comprehension of multiple step tasks is amazing! We had fun together.
Now there's a face!!! She looks just like her daddy, though when he was that age, his hair was strawberry blond. This photo just cracks me up!
On Friday morning, mom and dad went to do a little Christmas shopping and grandma happily volunteered to watch the little ones. We got our craft on. These three made photo frames for mom and dad and when they were done, we wrapped them so they'd remain a surprise. I let them use all the stickers and embellies they wanted to, and they decorated them the way that pleased them!
That's big brother Carter in the center, and Sammy on the left. Wait till you see the next photo of Samantha... she's quite the girl...
She and Carter have November birthdays, so I just saved their birthday gifts till they came for Thanksgiving. This girl is in hog-heaven with her new bride dress. She calls herself a "princess bride". Mighty cute!
And last, I have a photo of five of the grandchildren sitting on my kitchen floor. They all love olives, and were funny enough to put one on their fingers so grandma could photograph them. Drew is the darling little redhead, Lily has on the amazing tights, Grant is the blond goofball, and you've already "seen" Sam and Carter. The other two little ones were napping, and the older grandkids hadn't gotten to the house yet. What a wonderful family; so much to be thankful for. I'm still smiling at all the newly made memories. And thanks everyone for wading through this batch of photos. Happy dances everyone.
