One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Granddaughter made a card for her sister

Yeah!  Lily is coming home tomorrow after 20 days!
She has been in Cape Cod with a friend from school!!
 
We have all been missing her!
Ellie made a card for her:
Ellie saw my previous post with the butterfly and loved it, so she wanted to make one like it...we used a heart for the masking and added in an arrow.  Ellie did all the sponging and added the pearls.  She even did the embossing!
Earlier in the day we made a chocolate cake from scratch for Lily, that was Ellie's idea too!
We had enough batter to make a few cupcakes...my husband said it was the best chocolate cake he ever ate! It was so light and moist and really yummy...can hardly wait to cut into this two layer heart cake!!
 
Ellie's 7 year old brother is in here with us...die cutting, embossing, using the powder buddy...he is telling his 13 year old sister how to do everything!
 
Okay, now it is 10:10 pm and they are heading home for the night.. I will walk them next door, their parents are out for the night!  I am ready for bed!
Heart Hugs!
