Went to post this post the last week and my computer charging cord stopped working, so had to order another one. Finally I am able to post now. Checking email and answering email on a smart phone is nice, but not something you want to do all the time! Old eyes!!! lol
January is a big birthday month around here. The 3rd is Dwayne's birthday as well as one of our granddaughters. Then Bret left to go back to college on the 8th, which was also son #3's birthday. Yep, he was born on Elvis's birthday. Bret is home this weekend for his birthday, which is Jan. 24th. Haven't even made him a card yet! But will and then will mail it to him at college. Thought it might be nice to get a birthday card up there since his birthday is on Tuesday. We are going out Sunday with very close friends for crabs and shrimp for his birthday. OMGosh, my baby is turning 21! My oldest.....35. The other 4....33 down to 29. What the heck, how does this happen?!! lol Time waits for no one!!! lol And I'm feeling so old.
So I have two birthday cards for you today. These two cards are for son #3 and our granddaughter, who shares a birthday with Dwayne. I have been making some Valentine cards too, hope to share them soon as well.
This is granddaughter's card. I had the card made, but didn't have a sentiment on the front, so added it. I colored this little bear with my Spectrum Noirs, this cutie came from Paper Crafting World from when I was on Melin's DT.
Here are some updated shots of Savannah as well. She is really growing big. Around 70 lbs now and so strong! She is now 7 months old, will be 8 months on the 6th of Feb. She graduated her other training class just before Christmas with flying colors! I was so proud of her! Of course she is still puppy, but listens so much better now. I tell you, doing those 2 rounds of training was worth the money!!! Now I know how to train a dog! And that's half the battle. Anyway, I think she is growing into a beautiful girl and yes, she has finally grown into those ears! lol
As always thanks so much for stopping by and visiting for a spell. It hasn't been a hard winter so far and that makes me happy. But we have had some icy messes, although they haven't lasted long and melted, thank goodness because I hate ice! Give me snow over ice!!! I always appreciate your comments, they always bring rays of sunshine to a dreary winters day for me!!
