Sunday with Hannah

We are trying something new today, making the images smaller on my blog to see how they look so that you have to click on them to make them bigger. We'll see if I like the look of this or not. I like big pictures myself, but am following Scott's suggestion today. Yesterday was out 17th wedding anniversary, and maybe we have been happily married for 17 years because we are willing to try each other's suggestions.

I think the top photo shows of Hanna with background of paper from Anna Griffin. I bought the paper a long while ago in a discount bin, so I am not sure it is Anna's paper. But if my memory serves me it is. The flowers are from Daisy D and the gingham is from some unknown place. I adore gingham, for unknown, reasons, and snatch it up whenever I see some that I like. I mixed and matched my hanna sets, using Hanna from the "Tis the Season" set and accessories from the "But I Need It" set. I love Hanna's shoe shopping skills.

The poem on the card below reads "Even though she was a grown woman she believed in elves and Santa Claus and flying reindeer and sacks with an endless capacity for toys. Furthermore she belived that believeing in these things was the chief reason that she had more fun in life than others. "

The stamp is from River City Rubber Works and Hanna is from "Tis the Season at Hanna Stamps! I LOVE this card. I may make a bunch of these as my holiday card this year. Of course, last time I made my own Christmas cards I was so tired of looking at them that I never sent them out. I just lost the joy that year. But that would never happen with my sweet Hannas. I love these so much my husband is lucky I don't sleep with them while I am trying to dream up new ways to use them. (The paper is from Heidi Grace and Bazzill, colored with copics. I used the SU! ticket corner punch. I find it addictive and want to use it on all my cards but have to restrain myself.)

Happy "late" anniversary. 17 years..WOW that is an accomplishment these days!!! Congrads!

I am sorry to report to you...the small pictures aren't shows up with a small little box and an X and when you click on it, it gives you an error page. This makes me very, very sad.

One of the last words you wrote was restrain. Restrain? Restrain? Crafting and restraining yourself can not and should not ever be used together in a sentence. One can not restrain themselves if they like to craft. Never. Ever. That is all I am going to say on this subject.

Do you have The Wheel Thing made by SU? SIL has it and I am going to put it up for sale now. Thought you had it but wanted to make sure before I put it up that you didn't want it. I am thinking you have it because it is exactly the kind of stamp you would use all the time since you like to mask.
