Dancing with GrandBabies




Is there anything more precious than a warm little baby head on your shoulder?  I don't think so and I spent some time today just holding my sick little grandson and dancing gently around the house with him, to the tune of the demo track on the electronic piano, which he just loves.

Eighteen month old Parker and his mom (my youngest daughter) and dad are visiting with us on their way back home after spending a week on Vancouver Island.  Little Parker must have picked up a bug somewhere on the journey, because he was running quite a high fever this morning and he wasn't eating and was very cranky all day.


It amazes me continually the amount of love I have for this little guy and all his cousins.  I could literally sit and watch fascinated as he learns and plays.  His communication skills are growing by leaps and bounds and it is getting quite easy to talk to him.  I'm hoping he feels better soon!

I wanted to show you a card I created for a workshop I did in lovely Okanagan Falls today.  We stamped in the middle of a vineyard, on a breezy covered veranda and had a wonderful time!!  The hostess' husband requested that we do a funny card and this is what I came up with:                                                            

  • This stamp set is called Giggle Greetings and it's full of cute sayings and images that you can colour in.
  • The DSP (Designer Series Paper) is called Birthday Basics and I used the colour palette of the DSP for the card.
  • I also used the new Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to do some pewter heat embossing to give the card a little more zing!
  • I'm really glad we kept the Natural 7/16" Trim Ribbon from the Spring Mini!  It has just the right look for many of my designs.
I used a Stampin' Write Marker and Blender Pen to blend the marker colouring, but everything dried way too fast out in the hot air on the veranda.
                                                                                                                                                           Thanks for stopping by, and I hope your summer days are giving you some joy!  Don't forget to enter my Blog Candy giveaway here.  You have until Friday at 10 pm (PDT)
