Spiced Up Spice Cake

Standard

This is a first for me..completing the MoJo Monday sketch on a Monday. I wish I could be more organized and timely, but it’s just not in my nature. In my defense,running a busy farm doesn’t help either!

I have some news!!!!! I’m going to be a grand…( sorry that word is not yet in my vocabulary) or should I say my son and his beautiful wife are going to have a baby!!!! I am the oldest of 4 and this will be our immediate family’s first grandbaby! We are all so excited. My DIL is a twin and her older sister has twins….YIKES! Fingers crossed for just one….sonogram this week.

Lots of layers of Stampin’ Up’s Spice Cake DSP made this card a breeze!  My best friend ( of 35 yrs!) celebrates her birthday in a few days.. I hope she likes this card. The “friend” sentiment is heat embossed in gold, although it didn’t photograph so well.  SU’s antique brads add a vintage touch and the “border’ is the flower from the Blossom Bouquet triple punch snipped in half. Pearls adorn circles punched from the Spice Cake collection.

….and the mess

I'm Valari and I live to make stuff!! Ever since I was a little kid, I've always been making something..doll clothes,crocheting corny gifts,sewing my own clothes (and much to their chagrin,my kids clothes). Paper has been my latest ( and longest) obsession. My HE (husband equivalent) and I have a farm in central NY, not far from the Home of Baseball. Cooperstown NY and I have two wonderful sons who I wish weren't all grown up. Please don't take anything I say/write/post too seriously...I don't! Thank you for letting me share my thoughts!!
