I went flying this morning with my youngest son Ian at the controls. What a fabulous time I had and how happy I was to be flying with my son. He has had his private pilots license for several years now and has had the plane for a few years. It is an awesome feeling for a mother when a child lives his dreams. It made the ride so meaningful. Thanks son. I can't wait to do it again soon!
We flew all around the East Valley but most importantly..."my mountain." I am struck every day by the shear beauty of the Superstition Mountains which are in my back yard.We also flew over my house which is in the photo off the wing. I had to get a quick photo of Four Peaks which is the mountain off in the distance. It was a beautiful morning and it will always be one of my fondest memories..

With Chistmas just around the corner, I made this card to motivate myself to get going on my Christmas cards for this year. There is a tutorial for this cut out circle using a paper punch and Nestabilities here:
Give it a try, it's easier than it appears.

My friend and fellow Technique Junkie Shirley Ross sent me this fabulous card some time ago. I just unearthed it today while cleaning up my craft room. Shirley has such an eye for detail as you can see from this card. What you might not be able to see is the detail on the cupcakes. Shirley has used Glossy Accents and Liquid Embroidery as well as some gems and tiny crystals (I think.) I wish you could see it in real life, it's awesome!
