Where have I been?

I can't believe it's been so long since I posted here on my blog!  I have been fighting sickness for about a month now.  My allergies are really giving me fits--I'm allergic to tree pollen and it's been particularly bad here.  And then I was hit with a stomach bug!  Although I am over that bug, the weakness it left behind is lingering.  I am trying to get enough rest and get well.  

I have a couple of cards I'd been ready to blog about but just didn't feel up to it.  I'll try to get those done today or tomorrow!

 

                                                                                                                                                             

Happy Stamping!

January Swap--Valentine!

January_swap

Here is the swap card I made for January. We were to choose something from the Occasions or Sale-a-Bration catalogs. I chose a Valentine

Pikachu Valentines Box

My grandson requested a Pikachu Valentines box to have for his party in his pre-school class.  Using Pinterest, I found some samples and made mine.

 

                                             

 

I used all Stampin' Up! materials (to include the box I covered)!  Some of the items are now retired (the Little Letters dies) but I used Daffodil Delight,  Whisper White, Real Red, and Basic Black card stock.  A lot used punches to make the eyes and cheeks and then I made the tongue freehand.

Aunt Leola

On Saturday, we laid to rest this wonderful lady.  It was a beautiful ceremony in Ooltewah, Tennessee.  She was my husband's aunt and had just turned 100 on the 16th of January.  We went to her party and are so happy we got to spend some time with her.  Here is a photo we took with my husband, daughter, grandson, Aunt Leola and me

                                         

 

And here she is holding the frame piece I made her for her birthday

 

                                          

Aunt Leola was one of the first to welcome me to the family and was always loving and supportive.  RIP Aunt Leola
