I would like to welcome my newest follower. She is Lisa from Indiana too and her blog is http://indymermaid.blogspot.com/. She really has some fun cards on her blog. Thanks, Lisa, for visiting me and becoming a follower.

Oh what a beautiful day we have. It will be much colder tomorrow but today is so pretty. It's a little windy but the temps are good.  I should be washing windows for winter today but I am being a good patient. I don't want to undo anything or cause any ill effects.

Today is our youngest granddaughter's birthday. She is a teenager now. Where do the years go and so fast. I bought this card for her a long time ago for when she got older. There was a Stampin Up booth that came to all the craft fairs around here. I bought so many cards from her over the years before I really got into stamping and I have them all in a shoebox. The stamps are older ones but her cards are so cute. I am going to get them out and start sending them. As I show them I will tell you they are from the shoebox so you'll know I didn't make them. She is no longer in the business and doesn't have a blog that I could find. My next door neighbor's birthday is today too. She is 82 and loves candy. I took her a few little treats in little holders I made from http://kardsbykadie.blogspot.com/. Kadie is in several stamping groups and they make each other little gifts that are so clever. This treat holder is very simple but cute as can be. I used Tim Holtz stamps to cover the front. The first card is from the shoebox and the next picture are the treat holders. Be kind to one aonther.

Your treat holders are so cute, and how sweet of you to make these for your nice neighbor. Good for job at obeying the dr's instructions. The windows can wait..you sure don't want to undo any of the eye work. So wonderful to chat this morning. I'm so pleased & thankful for you, that all is going well. So don't chance messing it up - with HOUSEwork! Maybe crafting...(NOT!). Hugs & Happy weekend. TFS
