It's Your Day!!

Happy Monday to everyone!! Did you have a wonderul weekend.
We had our daughter and her two boys for a few days. Her and I planned on getting some crafting in but that didn't work out like we had hoped. On Friday we took her two boys to the beach since they have not been before (they were born in Alaska). It was nice to be able to be with them for their first visit. They didn't want to go in the water but sure had fun playing in the sand and looking for shells. When we got back home, we made some strawberry jam. It was fun doing that together and plan on doing it more and different kinds. On Father's Day we took them back home to meet up with her husband. He went on a 4 wheeling trip. We had dinner and then our daughter gave her dad a present that she made with pictures of him and the boys. The very last space she put that the expected arrival of their third will be in February of 2010. This will be our 9th and is still exciting news and I know she has been wanting another and is hoping for a girl. I am so excited for her and already have ideas going through my head to make for her. I make quilts and already thinking of what I will be able to come up with. She is not wanting to know what she is having until the baby is born so I won't know the sex until then either. Her husband wants to know so he will find out and probably could get him to tell me but I think it will be more fun to want until the day of the arrival.
CONGRATULATIONS, Jason and Melissa!!!!
Now on to my project. I made this card for my husband for Father's Day. He is always there for me and I wanted to let him know that he is my star. It came together pretty easy. I wasn't at first what I was going to do. This one seemed to go together on its own. I love how it turned out.
The strips on the ribbon were done with a stamp from Faux Ribbon (Papertrey Inc.). I saw Nichole use it on one of her cards and really liked the look and thought I would give it a try.
Thanks or stopping by and have a wonderful day.

I really like how this turned out. It is so awesome. Thanks for the congrats. I am excited and nervous and wishing I didn't feel so horrible but more than willing to deal for the reward.
