Lattice birdie

The big shot has really revolutionized the swappin business at Stampin' Up! events. Instead of having to cut out tiny little things, and deciding it is way too hard, we can now use this awesome tool and crank out tons of intricate looking swaps in no time! I love it! This swap uses a die that I have, but haven't actually used yet. I love the way the artist used it on here! I am talking about the Lattice Die in the background. The bird and branch are also dies. Great color combo too! This card was made by Karen Kurz from Albuquerque, NM.
In other news, my second oldest, Jared, turned 16 today. wow. These things just sneak up on me! He is a wonderful young man. He is one of the most honest and trustworthy people I know. I have no doubt that he will do good things in his life. He has some troubles, just like we all do, but he is diligent in choosing the right. I admire him so much for that. He has had a hard time missing his dad, but has been a rock for me. I am grateful for him! For his birthday, I took all the kids to dinner (BK) and then we went and saw Avatar in 3-D. it was a pretty good movie. jared liked it and Ben....well, he got into it! I can't decide if I liked the movie or Ben's reaction to it more....probably Ben...
Kids are the greatest blessings we have.....I am greatly blessed!
