New Additions

Hello Everyone,
Thanks for taking the time to stop by.  This week at Celebrate the Occasion (CTO) challenge 5 we are celebrating new additions (pet or baby).

I recently acquired baby steps thanks to my girl Adrian at By Adrian 4 U.  I could not find it at any of our stores here, but she was kind enough to get if for me and ship it to me.  Thanks A.

This card is a pocket card inspired by a Stampin' Up demonstrator (Dawn) and since I love the idea of learning new pocket folds I could not resist.  I wanted to try it from the moment I saw it on You Tube.  In order to get the border I changed some of the measurements.  If you look closely I put some earrings on this little baby girl (love it).   I think it turned out really well.  So come on over and Celebrate the Occasion with your new addition projects. Comments are welcome.  Enjoy and GOD Bless.

MS Blog Hop--A Card in Motion

Hello Everyone

Welcome and thank you for attending the Multiple Sclerosis Blog Hop.  I so love a good cause and submit my tiny contribution to help.  We want you to know that you may have the option to bid on any of the cards or make a donation directly to the MS Foundation on Linda's Page for MS.

Before agreeing to do the blog hop I tried to learn as much as I possibly could about MS.   I am sure I will not cover everything, but I just wanted to share some information with you so that you may be informed while going through the hop.  If you arrived from Glora's Crafts you are on the right track.   Linda  at Fancy Framework is our Blog Hop Hostess and so if you want to start from the beginning then click on her name

MS Info:
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) affects women more than men and is usually diagnosed between the ages 20-40 but like any disease can show itself at any age.    It  affects the brain and well as the spinal cord or the central nervous system.  MS occurs when the sheath surrounding the nerve cells is damaged.  Nerve damage is caused by the inflammation and the body's own immune system attacks the nervous system. At this point and time researchers are unsure what causes the inflammation, but state that is it mainly caused by a genetic defect, virus or both.

Here is a short clip of the wobble in action and a photo of the inside of the card.

Well happy Hopping!  Here is list of everyone on the hop.  If you get off track please hop back and go from there!!

Linda at Fancy is our Blog Hop Hostess.

Glora at Glora's Crafts

Oh, what is a blog  hop without Blog Candy right?  Below is a photo of the I-Rock  that I would like to give away.  Just leave a comment on this blog and a way for me to contact you.  No need to follow, but if you like what you see then by all means please do so.  I will pick a winner  on March 7th.
