The kids and I decided to make a book for Grampa. He has recently been diagnosed with cancer and is in the hospital. This book was their idea for a gift and has been a great way to cope as we all strolled down memory lane. We can hardly wait for the published version to arrive. Here are some of the high lights:

Thanks for stopping by,

Happy 40th Surfer Sister!

Wow! It's been a long time since I have been able to sit down and do a post. This is a card I made for my surfing sister who lives in San Diego. I bought this Penny Black stamp set awhile ago with the intent to make my sister a few cards. It is such a fun and sunny set.
