A sign of Thanks


 
Happy Holly-Day Friday, It's my turn to post over at the Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Blog!!!
 
TGIF! and I am OFF this weekend!  Whoopee!  What's more, my guys are all going camping over night on Saturday.  So it's boot them out the door by noon and I got the whole day and night to myself.  We're talking staying in my pj's, running around to surface clean and then I'm so blog hopping and making my Tuesday card!  lol. 
 
Special shout-out to my Sister, it's her Happy Birthday today.  My Sister is so wonderful.  She doesn't like to admit it, but she is the older one, lol.   She is a chef who can cook up anything you want with your eyes rolling in the back of your head and mouth begging for more.  She is also brilliant, she has one of those memories and she can remember all the way back to when we were very little.  She has a great smile and beautiful blue/green eyes.  I love hanging with my Sister, we can talk for hours and hours and hours.  Unfortunately, we do not get the chance to do that very often, but when we do, we make up for lost time, lol. 
 
I came home from work last night and guess what?  My Grandson Reed has added to the hole in his head, he lost his other front tooth! lol.  He is absolutely my Jack-O-Lantern this year and all he wants for Christmas is his two front teeth!  He is doing so well in making progress in School.  We have to be tough on the little guy sometimes to keep him focused on his homework and catching up on what he did not learn last year, but over all he is gaining so much knowledge in such a rapid pace and he is a trouper.  It's so hard to be the parent to your Grandchild.  All I want to do is give him his way, but I know that is not good for him.  So I struggle with it. 
 
My what a chatty post, lol.  You came here to see the card.  I love this cute little PI called, "It's a sign" and she comes with so many little things you can put in the sign.  I tried my hand at the chalkboard look and over all I like the results, but I know it needs flowers, lol.  I need to send this through the mail though, so I kept is pretty clean.  I love this Vertical Frame die!  I think you we be seeing more of these soon, lol.  I also love this beautiful paper. 
 
Speaking of cute paper and MFT items, youc an see that latest release in the NEW ITEMS of the store now.  Don't forget about our current Challenge - Polka Dots! We have a great store voucher prize and a wonderful Sponsor - Birdie Brown!   Also, there is still time to comments on our Sunday Blog hop for a chance to win a great prize!  And you will want to return to the Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Blog tomorrow for our Saturday Video Tutorials.

So enjoy reading your "chatty post"! It is nice to read about the family and friends who inhabit your world...it gives us perspective to your artwork. And speaking of art...your card is lovely! Using that vertical frame brought all the attention directly to your beautifully colored image!
