Housewarming Card and Gift for my Parents!!! :)

Hello everyone!  :)  My parents just moved into a new house, and I am so excited for them!  Their new house is beautiful!!!!!!!!  They are back in town, instead of up the mountain, so it's much easier to swing by and visit with them now.  I knew I wanted to get them a little housewarming gift and make them a card, but I wasn't quite sure what to do for them.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, and I know that they really enjoyed their gift and card...  and that's what really matters!  :)

Crafty Calendar Challenge- add a sentiment
Crafty Sentiments Designs- anything goes
Simply Create Too- no stamped or digital images

Winter Frolic- branch and birdhouse cut at 3.05"
Cuttlebug- leafy tree trunk (Darice)
Sentiment- from my computer "home" Janda Stylish Script font size 20, "tweet" Things We Said font size 20
Stickles- star dust, black diamond

Here is what I ended up doing for them as a gift.  I found a cute basket at Cost Plus World Market, a dish towel, green tea, coffee, two sugar-free syrups, and I made them homemade blueberry scones.  They are THE BEST scones!!!  Once I discovered this recipe, I never use any other one!  Give them a try, you won't be disappointed...  :)   

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed your visit!  :)

Happy Birthday Grandma!!!! :)

Hello everyone!!!!  Happy Spring!  I don't know how it is in your neck of the woods, but here in California we are having VERY warm days.  Not my favorite type of weather, but we are getting by just fine!  Also, it just means we get to barbeque a little earlier...  ;)  Okay, I'm getting way off topic...  Yesterday was my grandma's 84th birthday!  I made her this card and I made her a birthday cake!  Grandma always makes the cake for everyone's birthday, soooo this time she got to just sit back and enjoy the cake!  Love you grandma!!!!!!!!!!!  :)
