Busy Weekends...

I can't believe where the time goes.  I know it was just January 1st yesterday right????  Well my calendar tells me it's the middle part of May and that summer is just around the corner.  However if you live in the northwest summer usually does not really begin until after the 4th of July. As summer approach things around here get busy, I think it's because the weather gets a bit nicer and people want to get out of the house after being stuck inside all winter.

Last weekend was my granddaughter's 8th birthday so I'd thought I share with you the card I made for her.  The bear comes out of the pocket to be used as a bookmark. The bear and happy birthday sentiment are from the create a critter cartridge, the pocket is my own design.  I also added a few pictures of her and I at the Build a Bear Workshop in Salt Lake City. Going to the Build a Bear Workshop is a tradition for us. Each year on or around her birthday we go make bears together.  I hope she will never out grow this tradition.
I hope this inspires you. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.

God Bless,


  1. Awwww, great photos and it looks like you had so much fun. What a great tradition you have with her. I pray it lasts for a long time too. :)


  2. Your bear card is really adorable. I did one similiar with a build a bear die that I got from Stampin Up. I think your's is cuter though.
