Nothing Runs Like a Deere

Hello and happy Easter weekend.  Not only is today the middle of a long weekend, it is also a very special day for me as my son turns 25.  Wow, where has the time gone?!?  I am so proud of the man he has become.  He works hard to provide for his wife and two children and is always busy trying to keep ahead of the game. In his spare time, he enjoys hanging out with friends and riding his motorcycle.  And since he has moved to the country, outdoor things have been added to his favourites too.  We were together yesterday and he is celebrating today with other family.  This is the card I made for him:

Pause, Dream, Enjoy Linky Party #8 ~ Anything Goes!!!!

Good morning.  Welcome to another linky party at Pause, Dream, Enjoy and this time we have a super easy one for ya....."ANYTHING GOES".  So I am positive you will be able to make something and link it up to show us in the next two weeks.

For my project today, I have a party invitation I made for a special little girl who is turning 7 at the end of this month.  Wow, how time is my niece's daughter and I remember when it was my niece turning 7.  I also made matching tags for the mason jars that she is giving as loot bags.

Card stock ~ Recollections
Patterned Paper ~ Three Bugs in A Rug
Cricut Cartridges ~ Accent Essentials (circle)
~ Birthday Cakes (teacup)
~ Sweet Treats (candle, flower)
Punches ~ Martha Stewart
~ Creative Memories
Bling ~ The Robin's Nest "Mardi Gras"

Thanks for coming by.  I have had a lot going on in my life and crafting has been put on the back burner for sure this year.  But I attended Scrapfest in Kitchener this past weekend and it reminded me of how much I enjoy paper crafting and how relaxing I find it.  Maybe I will make more time to be in my craft room; maybe not, but we shall see.  I do appreciate all who come by and see my sporadic posts and projects.  

Until next time,
