A few challenges and fun with my niece!

This is my entry for the Happy Monday Challenge " All buttoned up" I love the new website DeeDee has set up!

My niece, Meadow, came up to spend the afternoon with me yesterday. We made strombolis and video taped it pretending we were on a cooking show....hilarious! Afterwards she wanted to make cards. This is one of her creations. So cute! the card and my niece!

This is my entry for the Do You Stack Up challenge # 7 "Dots"

Here is my entry for the C4CC challenge12. It was a color challenge- green, purple & yellow. I had a terrible time getting my purple to look purple. Oh, well, it was fun and it will make a nice birthday card for someone!
Busy day today....better get moving! Enjoy the warm weather (if you are where it is warm today) and have a super day!

Lori, it sounds and looks like you've been having a ton of fun!!! Your niece is such a cutie, and obviously a talented crafter in her own right. The cards you made are all wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing these and your recount of your special day with your niece! Hugs, Deedee

Thanks to all you sweet, wonderful ladies for commenting. I love making cards, and spending time with my niece! She said she wanted to make cards "just like you, Aunt Lori"....no way I could have refused her. Now the cooking video....oh, my so hilarious. We were trying to talk like Julia Childs...he he! I guess will be a great memory for her someday...embarassing for me, but I love the idea of making memories. Thanks again, you are all so sweet!
