Day 6 & 5....

I'm on Day 6 was yesterday...I didn't have internet I'm combining the two days. Wanted to make sure my Oregonian peep saw that I haven't opened the gifts, yet!  

And to be honest with you....I have to play this "little" game with Steph, my Oregonian....otherwise....I will open the gifts!  You see...when I was a kid...I used to "pre" open the gifts before Christmas Eve...I would take a razor blade...and cut the tape, so I could see what the gifts were....I know, I know, I know...but I'm older and wiser ...well, I'm older...maybe a little wiser...just a little...

Anyho, here's a pic to prove I haven't opened them, yet.

I LOVE YOU, Steph! You are my best friend....and I still want to open the gifts...(smile)!

Check out what my OWN brother said on Facebook about the gift opening...

Day 7....

Good Morning, Everyone! So I'm making good on a promise I made with my Oregonian peep to not open the Christmas gift from her....and I will admit it's something I don't want to do...what I really want to do it to open it RIGHT NOW!  But I promised...and although I've promised in the past years...I will make good on it this year!

Here's a picture to prove it! Look's untouched!  And YES, I want to open the gift NOW! But I will wait until Christmas Eve...I promise! Cross my heart!

The Rainbow Bridge....

‎'There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass.

When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. All the animals who have been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. Her bright eyes are intent; her eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly she begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, her legs carrying her faster and faster. You have been spo
tted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated.'

I will miss you painfully...I love you, Kane!

My timing is all mixed up...

My timing is all mixed up....because a couple of weeks ago, I posted my brothers birthday card.  I haven't posted my BFF's card...and her birthday was in September! Well, here's the card I created for her!  I wanted to make the's the directions from YouTube:

Here's the card I created for Stephanie:

From this view, you can see the embossing that I over heated....opps!
