2010 Christmas Photo

Every year I get Ethan's photo done with Santa and send out picture cards as our Christmas cards (I don't think I'll ever be able to bring myself to making 100+ cards). Here is this year's photo. Our mall has the most amazing Santa, and he's been there every year since Ethan was born.

Storm Trooper - Thank You Cards

These are the thank-you cards I created for Ethan to send for his birthday presents. This was the first year he was able to write them himself. Everyone thought his kindergarten handwriting was adorable. Especially his mother.

Happy 6th Birthday Ethan!

Today is my son's 6th birthday. My baby is growing up too fast! He is currently obsessed with Star Wars, specifically Darth Vader so I created this to match the sprinkles on his birthday cake.

Deer Friends

Here are two versions (I ran out of patterned paper) of the 12x12 layout I did for November's stamp club. Since some of the girls don't celebrate Christmas, I tried to stick to a generic winter theme. The only real technique on this layout was the use of a "mirror image stamp" to get both deer to face into the title. Mirror Image stamps aren't easy to find (I had to buy mine on the internet) but I do think it is something every stamper should have in their arsenal of supplies.

Happy Birthday Alonzo

I created this card for my nephew who is as wild and colorful a character as this card. I wouldn't trade him for the world!
