Flooding in Central Vermont

We are "somewhat" immuned to flooding in Vermont.  It does happen here from time to time and year to year (not at all like other places in the United States).  Many homes and camps along Lake Champlain have been battling a terrible spring because of a heavy winter snow and several days of rain (Lake Champlain broke it's record this spring at around 103 feet).  However, last night the weather was so severe in Central Vermont.  I have never witnessed such intense rain, wind, and hail. Torrando watches in the next town over; Montpelier, our capital, had flooded streets, paved streets in the Town of Barre are nothing but dirt roads and they have litterly crumbled, and homes so severely damaged.  More bad weather is expected tonight for us!!

First Communion

Here is a card I made for my cousins daughter who made her First Communion today.  She was just the cutest.  The cross is from the 2010 Easter cartridge and it was cut at 2.1".  I made the sentiment on my computer with Century Schoolbook font at 16 pt. and I added a couple of pearls.  Very simple.

Baby Card

A man in our office is having his first child next month.  We are having an office baby shower this week so I wanted to make a card.  The letters came from the Nursey Rhymes cartridge.  This is a 9.25" x 4" tall card.  The letters were cut at 2.50" and the solid square behind the letters were cut at 2.75".  The letters are under the monogram section of the booklet and the solid square is found on pg. 63.  The label was My Pink Stamper's Sweet Baby stamp pack. There should be plenty of room for 10 people to sign.

Basketball Card

Our granddaughter has just finished a very successful year with her 6th grade basketball team.  I wanted to make her a card to let her know what a great job she did.  This is Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge.  I cut the person at 4" and the hoop at 4.50".

Graduation Card

It's that time of year for graduations. I made this from the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge. I cut everything at 4.25". The numbers were from the new American Alphabet cartridge that came with my E2. I believe those were cut at 1". Also I used Peacy Keen Stamps for the face, size medium.

A 70th Birthday Card for My Uncle

Hi Everone, Here is a card I made for my Uncle's 70th birthday back in March.  This card was inspried because my uncle and my father (they're brothers) have what they call "Cowboy Coffee" in the mornings.  The card is from the Old West cartridge.  It's a S or Z fold card. I cut the coffee pot at 2.75", the cup at 2.25", the horse shoe at 1" and 1.50", and the banner was at 2.50".
