Design by LutgArt.....

I just received this WOW! handmade card from my dear friend Lutgart.  In person it's truly beautiful.  Lutgart... Thank you so much for this special gift.  Keep those creative juices flowing girl. 

This is the inside of the card.  It opens up like a book with a window.  Inside it says Happy Birthday with a lovely butterfly and bird.  Charly, her cat is at the bottom. He's such a cutie.
Thank you Lutgart.  It's absolutely lovely.  Those SU products are really nice but your personal touch has made it come alive.  Hugs to you. xo

Birthday Card from Maggie

I won't say too much.  Maggie always makes special handmade creations for me.  Isn't it lovely?  Happy 53... says it all.  It's an accordian mini, Victorian Vintage.  We always have a good laugh and each other's company.  Especially when we go to Michaels.  We should have stocks there for crying out loud. LOL...   Enjoy.  Visit Maggie at    Thank you Maggie..

My Gifts - Part 2

The top card was the creation of our very own Alan who wrote the sentiment I mentioned above... Sometime we have a little...... Alan gave me the cars, the bling and the OG name.  Translation to the OG is..... "Original Gangster".... Can you believe it?  There's also another name I have... It's Rizzo, from the movie Grease...  Tell me if I don't work with creative people! LOL....  I doubt about it.  Alright, the next one is my personal Cruzin vintage car created by our very own Xiomara also known to us as Lady Xi (C).... That's me at the wheels, Alan in the middle and Xio watching our back.  Totally fun, because that's how we roll.....  The next one is the front side of Lenore's card. 

These next two are from two lovely ladies.  The top one was created by my very own special Chesney, also known as Chesnut to me.  She recently became a mommy to beautiful Cory Noelle.  Chesnut has another daughter Ariana who is very talented and may well be an actor in the future.  The girl has potential for greatness.  Anyway, This card has pictures of the entire family and it screams Love all over... Thank you my Chesnut!   The bottom  card was created by my very own Pauline, also know as Puffball.  And while this card may seem simple it's sentiment has touched my heart deeply. 

The two top ones were created by Debbie.  She works in the records department.  After work we wait for her to come over with all the lastest news.  We have lots of fun. The world has Nancy Grace but we say we have Debbie Grace. LOL...  The beauty below was created by Darlena who also works with Debbie. Darlena enjoys a good laugh as well as sharing her pet fishes and plants with us.  Meaning she's got fish and plant nannies when she goes out on vacation.  Thanks girls for the beautiful gift and friendship!.

Recently I saw a tutorial by Kathy Orta on how to make a Match book Mini album. *(here is the link. ) I loved it so much that I tried it out.  And this is the cover, a couple of the middle pages and back cover below.  Here is where store all my handmade birthday cards for keepsake. 

Celebrating 53

Hola Familia!  It's been a while since my last post.  Two weeks ago I celebrated my 53 rd birthday.  Yes, the big 53.  I feel good and have to say it was a really special one too!  My co-workers surprised me with two tasty cakes which we enjoyed eating and laughing about.  As you can see from this picture.  It says..... HappyB-day M-Lo. LOL....  The world has J-Lo and my co-workers have me, "M-Lo"  the real one from the block!  LOL... These kids have fun with me and my crazyness.  One of them wrote " Sometimes we have a little.... sometimes we have alot.... and sometimes I see you on the block.  Keep it real... cause sometimes that's all we got."  Ain't it the truth! I love my possey at work.  We do have fun and work at the same time.  People line up out side the department because they want to join our team. LOL... What can I say... I work with some extraordinary people. 

The reason why I say my birthday was a special one is because I asked my co-workers I wanted something special from them.  I requested a handmade card from each of them.  I have to tell you, I was overwelmed with emotion and felt the love as each one made from their heart these precious cards.  Below you'll see them a little closer.  Enjoy them. 

See,  what did I tell you.   LOL This is Jamal, a man who loves his cake! lol. 

To start, the top card was created by Ralph.  He's our IT guy.  Isn't it beautiful?  The sentiment he wrote left me almost in tears.  My heart was full of emotion with all of them.   J-lo may have rocks and bling, but I received the bling that shined from the depth of my friends hearts.  And that says alot!  I'm very grateful.  Ok,  lets continue..... :o)..... The bottom one was created by Jamal.  Jamal's sentiment had lots of wisdom and God's love all over it. He's a dad and the front shows that as well.

This beauty was created by Charlotte.  A lovely lady who says little but has a big heart.  Thank you so much dear Charlotte.  Muchas Gracias. xoxoxox

This birthday presentation was created by Elle.  Our very own Lenore who decided to show her creativity by making my very own award card.!  That's me in the bottom receiving my Swan award as I thank my people for voting for me!....  "I love you all"  LOL.... The other side is just as beautiful and funny as this side.  Lenore is my Master Piece Classic, PBS buddy.  We love Charles Dickens and are anxiously awaiting for the next Sherlock Holmes series to come out in May.  Love ya TattyCoram....  LOL
