Hi friends!

Today is my son's birthday and

this mama can't believe it!


Although most of me says "where has my baby gone!?",

I could not be prouder of the amazing young man

 he has grown up to be :)

Today will be a day filled with festivies and fun

(and a drama production which landed on his birthday so ....

a LATE celebration as well!)

Okay, enough gushing ...

There's a new challenge at the CCEE Stampers

and this one is:

Tomorrow (9/10) is Swap Ideas Day. For today’s challenge, find a card you have seen using a new technique to you, or a new color combination, or anything you’ve never done before and make a card. Be sure to credit the person whose idea you have used. 

My swap idea:  Twinchies!

This is perfect, Lois!  

I just recently did a swap with my YouTube friends

and created my first Twinchies :)

They were a hoot and definitely fun to make.

Twinchies are not new, but new to me, and this set had a Florida vibe.

I used Doodlebug and Simple Stories ephemera and papers

and kept them to the 2" x 2" size required!

I'm sorry I don't have photos ~

I forgot to take them before I mailed them!

But you can watch the video here on my YouTube Channel.

Good thing it's not share your gift day ...

as I've inherited the GIFT OF GAB! :)


Thanks for stopping by!
