Basketball, birthdays and balderdash....

I was shocked at Easter when I posted and realized it was my first blog entry all month. Gotta try to do better with my posting. I just hadn't finished any projects and I am never sure if people like the posts that are just photos and writig about what's been happening in my life.

I joined a stamper's group and attended my first party in April. We made 3 cards. I'll post the third one soon... it will be my mom's Mother's Day card and I want to give it to her before I post it.

I have to say that I am in love with the Sunny Garden DSP and I must have it at some point.

A few non-cardmaking related highlights of the past month or so:

I attended a birthday party for one of the guy's at our church. Take a look at this cake! My friend Chris made it; she is SO talented.
Here's a picture of the birthday boy. He was in his element, up on stage playing with his bands. He's played with different guys over the years, mostly friends, I think. All of them got a chance to come up and jam with him. I love listening to him. He also plays in chuch sometimes and he's very talented. The party was awesome. Lots of great food, fellowship and fun on the dance floor.

Super proud of the Terrific 12 Year Old. She played basketball this year, and I managed to get to their quarterfinal playoff game. They won. I took a picture of the final score for posterity and because I knew she wouldn't want a post game picture posted on my blog for the world to see.  They lost their next two games and came in 4th out of 14 teams. The reason we were all so proud of her, beyond how they did, is the fact that she played despite a sore ankle, which it turns out was sprained.
