Christmas 2018

Yet another year before us.
I've got some cards to share.

Still not feeling myself
so I won't narrate - you just enjoy!

Last, but not least, is a hanging card
that I created for my friend and her family. 

Next year, God willing,
cards will be created right here in The Playground
and sent to my family and friends.
Just wasn't meant to happen this year.
I hope you understand.

Merry Christmas, one and all.
Most importantly,
my wish for you is that you all have a

A Birth Day and a Birthday

My friend's cousin had a baby this week
and I was fortunate enough to be asked
to create a card for little JJ.
His Birth Day came a little early
but he and his mamma are doing great.

His parents met at Baylor University
so of course she asked me to use their colors.
Tough assignment, but I think I pulled it off.

Another friends' mother/mother-in-law
celebrated her Birthday a few days ago as well.
The requisition for the card was for it to be
"not Christmasy and she loves crosses."

Quite a week for these two families!

"You didn't tell me that part!!!"

It's kind of a thing we say in our home.
When something just doesn't go according to plan,
or something out of the ordinary,
that's what we say to each other.

This morning he didn't say it,
but I'm betting he thought about it.

"You didn't tell me that part!!!"

What a way to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary.
The wife is down and out with some kind of junk.
Sore throat, swollen glands, inflamed sinuses
and just general blaaahhhhaaaaa feelings.

Must say though - I'm feeling a lot better each day.
Maybe even well enough to sneak out to dinner.
I'm quite confident the contagious part is gone.

Might just be a waste of money
because I don't have much of an appetite
but if I can scrounge up the energy
to get myself ready, we'll go out.

Geeze - 25 years.
That's a huge milestone!

And to think it all began in the 9th grade.
You see, that was our first date.

Here's a mini album I created for him
back in 2008 and each year I love to revisit it.

Our wedding was our FOURTH date! 

You'll never taste a better cake than this one! 

Happy Anniversary to The Runner!
