you're a life saver




Hello & Happy Saturday!

I've had the Paper Smooches Sailboat die for awhile and this is the first time I've used it, odd since something that I never tire of is the nautical trend.   

Cardstock:  neenah white, tim holtz kraft core & misc black Paper:  studio calico card kit pad, amy tangerine ready set go, dear lizzy 5th & frolic  Stamps:  paper smooches wicked nauticool  Ink:  memento tuxedo Other:  paper smooches sailboat die, studio calico wood veneer, DCWV cork

I teamed up the die with the Paper Smooches Wicked Nauticool stamp set.   


Isn't that Studio Calico wood veneer perfect?

I was inspired by



along with



and

Paper Smooches Sparks



and finally

Cut it Up





Well, this is my girl's birthday weekend.  On Monday she turns 19.

W  O  W

It is seriously hard for me to grasp...time does seriously fly.  It's funny, when she was an infant, she was a fireball.  She was super fussy, like super fussy.  It could have been a combo of first time parents and sleep deprivation but my Momma even agrees that she seemed unusually...vocal.  Hard to believe when you see her today, she's quiet with that fabulous dry sense of humor that I love.

Thee best job ever....being a Momma.   

I've been texting the girl pictures as part of her 19 day countdown to her birthday and wanted to share some of them with you:





signed,

Thankful Momma
