For You



Well, I did it. I took advantage of some down time to put my HM card together. Papa took the kids to the Naval Air Museum, the moms were visiting and feeding babies, and KrB stole away to her "happy place" and created her card. I got to use the new Tangerine Tango from the 2008 In-Color collection. I also used my new Basic Grey's "Ambrosia". I used a piece of Lemon Tart from PaperTrey Ink and colored Mudpie and Monica with Prisma Color pencils. I sponged the image lightly with Sahara Sand. I embellished it with brads and a flower. My sentiment comes from SU's Fresh Cuts and the image is HM's "Sweet Find". That was a therapeutic session for me - it usually is - and I've got something to post besides just an explanation. Now until Saturday, I'll probably be occupied with our 8 grandkids. On Thursday we're hoping to get some great pictures of the 3 babies and then all of the kids. I can't imagine getting a great picture of 3 babies aged 2, 4, and 6 months, but that's why I chose a very seasoned photographer for the job. I'm very hopeful we'll get a great Christmas card out of this session. Thanks for taking a look. Hugs, KrB

I saw the card last night at your house! I LOVE it!! I didn't get to tell you amidst all the chaos of. . .how many kids is it? 10? 11? It seems like a lot more than it really is sometimes. Glad you got to hide out in your room for awhile. We will try to send you to your room more often. =) Love
