*Three of Three*

Hello everyone.... so sorry for being MIA the last few days. I'm trying to space out my posts as I only have a few left to share with you. And I'm on vacation at my Mom's in Saskatchewan right now and not making any cards. I'm going to have to find some time to craft when I get home!

We've had a good day today... better than I feared it would end up. This afternoon my Mom, two sisters and I finally went through all of the things that were in Dad's closet and dresser. He passed away in May 2006 and we packed all that stuff away into suitcases and out of the way in the summer of 2006. It wasn't nearly as emotional as I feared it would be. A few tough moments but otherwise good.

Before the tears we got all of the family together and my niece who is heading to Fanshawe College in the fall to take photography took a bunch of family photos. I'll have to share some of those cuz some of them turned out pretty good. It was a regret of all of ours that we weren't able to get family photos done the last time we were all together before Dad died... we were all here during the summer of 2005, had a photo session booked but had to cancel when Dad ended up in the hospital with congestive heart failure. We didn't want to let this opportunity pass us by.

And then tonight my sisters, Mom and I went to Bingo... a Sunday night tradition for Mom and Sandra and Heather and I join in when we are here. I won a total of $150 and spent about $50.... came out ahead. Had a great time yelling bingo so much!

Anyway.... on to the reason you are here... Card #3 from my Happy Birthday Card class at the Scrapbook Pantry.

This is a peek-a-boo card... the first one I've made that doesn't have a round peek-a-boo. I used the Cuttlebug and my Nestabilities to create the peek-a-boo portion of the card. The papers and stamped image are by Imaginisce and I added three square coloured metallic brads for a little visual interest. The peek-a-boo part of the card is mounted on the inside with pop dots.

Thanks again for stopping by.....

I'm glad to hear you are having a good time and things are going well. I saw a few pictures from the family shoot that you were tagged in on facebook. When do you come home again?
