Mini Books

I believe these mini books are # 11.  I started making mini books with family history inside many "moons" ago to share with my family!   I have a long long ways to go before my list of "family" is complete!   Lots of mistakes with the facts but a starts so my relatives have a little idea of our descendants.  These last 2 books and boxes were fun to stamp and color!  Very busy but I really like how they turned out!  They do have "shimmer" to them and of course the picture didn't pick up that sparkle! Thanks again to Nika paper craft supply store in Windsor for the inspiration! 

'Tis the season!  Blueberry time!  This is the first cultivar ready;  "Duke"!  So I hope we will be picking berries for the next 4 weeks!  I have blue ray, blue crop and st. Cloud too!  Last year we lost so many to the birds! I have my fingers crossed!

Thank you for looking and have a great weekend!

Viva Paper-soft-color Birthday card

Made this card last night and added the verse this morning, before we headed off to look at a truck for my son!  I got to visit a near by craft store in Truro!  I guess I was in the store for 30 minutes!  I was timed!  And I didn't buy anything!   Trying to make good choices! ( as if I need anything)!!!  My oldest 4 legged fluff ball had 10 teeth removed on top of our yougest dog had dental work a few months ago and their yearly check up last month!

Anyway on with the card!

I bought this paper-soft-color (blue,yellow and rose) at the last sale at our local craft store, Nika Paperart Supplies on Water Street in Windsor; NS Cananda.  It is very cool to use!  I do want more colors!  Brown and green are on my wish list....She has another sale starting this Wednesday, July 23;  Christmas in July!  The draft horses stamp was also purchased at Nika's last sale!
