Just Wanted to Share :)

We've just finished up our annual New Mexico State Fair last weekend. I entered a few of my cards this year just for fun. Was I ever excited to receive these Blue Ribbons! So, I thought I'd share the cards I entered into our fair. :)
The Mermaid card was entered in the "All Occasion" category.
The Mouse was entered in the "Birthday" category.
And my Koala was entered in the "Altered Project" category.
Of course, I'm SOOOO much more proud of my son, Nick's accomplishment!
My son, Nick decided at the last minute to enter his "Waste Management" Lego garbage truck into the "City & Town" category of the Lego competition. Much to his surprise, he just tore it up!!! His truck, made from his own ideas, (NOT a kit from the store) won BEST OF SHOW!!!

Congratulations -- it looks like it's time for major celebrations in your household!

Beautiful cards; your colors are so elegant and the stitching is very intricate detail.

Your son has a bright future as an engineer -- I'm so impressed that he created his truck from scratch!!

Wow, it's a BLUE RIBBON family! Not 1 or 2 or even 3 but 4!!!!! That's incredible! But deserved on all fronts. Your son's truck is more than impressive! Congratulations to both of you. Hope you left a ribbon or 2 for somebody else! (just kidding!)

I agree with Denise. All of your cards are blue ribbon in my opinion. Well deserved honors on all parts. Your son is very creative as well and looks like building or construction is perhaps in his future. Congratulations to both of you!!
