Saturday Events

Yesterday marked the end of an era at my house.... My youngest child, Ian, attended his senior prom! It was a bittersweet moment as a parent. Ian is so independent and has such a nice sense of self that he does not feel the need to follow the crowd, as evidenced by his choice of prom attire. And as proud of him as I am, I will miss him just as much as I miss his siblings when he goes to college.

This is Ian and his date Mary (Note to Diane - she is from Boston!):



Also this weekend, my WONDERFUL friend and neighbor Andrea created this amazing wreath for my front door. My entry way is set in a bit and is often a bit dark (black door surrounded by dark red brick - duhhh) but this wreath is so bright and pretty it is easily visible from the street.


Andrea is one of the most talented stampers I know, so making her a thank you card was a bit of a challenge. I decided to use the purse card I had been working on. NOTE: THE CUT FILE HAS BEEN ADDED TO THE FREE DOWNLOADABLE CUT FILE MENU IN THE LEFT COLUMN.

And inside is an optional spot to tuck away a gift card:


I hope Andrea liked her card at least a bit as well as I LOVE my wreath!!

  4. You just have to love a guy who is confident enough to wear a kilt! Mary is a lucky girl.

    Your wreath looks terrific and I am sure Andrea will enjoy the card - it looks very nice - what a great way to present a gift card.

  14. Barb,

    The cut file is designed for the Cricut machine. You will need to go to cricut.com and download the trial version of Cricut Design Studio. The CDS allows you to create and interface our computer with your cricut machine to cut.

    Hope this helps.
