Share Handmade Kindness Challenge Week 3 - Kids

I made this card at the request of my daughter. She needed a card for a co-worker that was leaving. She said he enjoys the photos and cards with our two Dachshunds. 

One dog is in shadow and the other is standing at the opened gate. The sentiment is a play on words, So Looong, meaning goodbye and referring to the length of the dog.

Inside the card I wanted to put "Happy Tails" but I thought that was just too many dog references!

I hope this card qualifies for the Challenge!

Veteran's Day November 11, 2015

This is an omage to my father, 

Warren Alexander Ligget

a Veteran.

He was married and a dad as World War II heated up. He worked/or had worked as an Air-Traffic Controller and he was a pilot. 

He joined the Civil Air Patrol.

I believe this photo is in the Control Tower probably in Billlings, Montana

In this photo he is with my mom, Katherine Mary Nave Ligget

This is 1945, in Guam, where he was stationed. (I remember playing with that pith helmet).

He was one of the lucky ones, he got to come home and live a full life with lots of friends, a devoted wife and four loving daughters. He seldom talked about the war but when he did it was with tears in his eyes.

I miss you daddy. 

Thank you for your service.

Share Handmade Kindness Challenge Week 2: Community


I love my yoga teacher/massage therapist!  
When I saw this stamp from Art Impressions I knew I had to have it!  Then Waffle Flower came out with the Lotus Flower. Then I found the word "namaste" in a Unity set. So there you have it - I bought three stamp sets for one card! So I guess I supported our crafting community as well as making a little "thank you" for my wonderful teacher!!!!
