Happy Birthday Ariana!!!

Wow, Princess! How time flies, your already Six years old. I am so proud of you and all your accomplishments. I am so sorry that your under the weather on your special day, but don't worry because you can always celebrate it on the weekend, when you'll be feeling much better. Not every one celebrates their birthday on the day of their birth, so place a little sticky note and put your birthday on hold. You know that I always celebrate all your birthdays together, being that Grandma lives so far away, we always have a fun time, too. So, when Grandma is also feeling better we will get together and make it a big bash. Have a Happy Birthday, Princess! May all your wishes come true.
Most important remember that we love you.

Its been a blessing watching you grow. Here's a big hug and kiss from Grandma and Grandpa.
I am sorry but copyrights didn't allow me to post Ariana's card, but she was very pleased with it.

Dad because your missed!!!

I am sorry to say that I no longer have my Dad with me, but there isn't a day that I don't think about him. He was a great Dad, he was wonderful to my mom and always expressed him love and affection to her and us. I stood by him to the very end. My dad was a Barber and this is way I was a hairstylist. I still make it to there their resting place to keep it up. My brother adds his gardening touch to the plot, so we always get a chance to say our prayers and share our visits. Wow, how much I miss My Dad. He was a very large man, who carried me on his shoulders and I felt like I was on top of the world. He was a loving Grandfather, who with age would still disco dance with his grand daughter. How she love it and spend more time with him than time itself. Love you and miss you, Dad!

I am enclosing two more Dad Cards for those Father's Day greetings.



I was inspired to do this card after visiting Wendy blog. She does some lovely work. She had made a Baby book, which was so irresistible that I had to give it a shot and this is what I came up with. Thank you Wendy for your idea. Visit her site a see more of her lovely cards.

Here is the next card that I made, which I hope you will like. I want to thank all those of you who left such inspiring comment. I feel so happy to know that someone has taken time to let me know how the feel about my work. Thank very much!


Some of the embellishments were from Provo Crafts - Interactive Stand Outs Stickers. I wanted to add something different to my cards. You can also add your own embellishments.

This the only picture that I have available on my computer

Special person...

I started making my Father's day cards. I can't believe how quickly time passes. This year, I have new additions to my Father's day card list. Making cards for males is always so difficult for me. You don't want to make them to flowery, where it’s on the feminine side. Males are so macho, but these are father’s that hold your hands safe. Any man can be a father , but it takes a special person to be a Dad.
Happy Father’s Day to all those Dads out there.

Happy Birthday, Anna

I want to wish my Sister-in-law, Anna Montalvo, and Happy Birthday.
She's Having a Birthday on June 6. 2009.
Anna is a wife, a mother of four, and a grandmother of five.
She's very humorous, a buzzy bee, how she manages her busy life style is amazing.
Great Sister in law, and a loving sister.
This is the card that I made her.
I'd like to share this card with anyone who is having a birthday.
