enjoying everyday life!

I wanted to do a quick post. It's been busy over here with life, and work! And it seems as if whenever I go to post I haven't taken a picture of the cards yet in sunlight and it's now night! Oh well. Life for me is going well. I am so blessed to be surrounded with opportunities to get out and be with people and friends! I can find highlights in even general things, driving my daughter to preschool and chatting with fellow mom's having the morning with just my son and hitting the local scrapbooking stores and getting some new stuff! And having such a great chat with the owner of one store! Volunteering at the stay and play at my church the kids get out and have a great time playing and I get to hang out with some mom's! This week I was even able to have a girls night out with a few friends seeing the Ugly Truth (at the cheap theatre even better for us stay at home mom's!) and having my favorite gelati! This morning I went to the mall since my friend was kind to send me a 25% coupon she got online for a store and picked up a snowsuit for my daughter for a great price! And having a coffee and letting the kids play in the play area of the mall with my friend. And even working wasn't that bad, I work only a few evenings and I like getting out and being around people! I did get some time to create and I have started with the Christmas cards! I think I will be making 10 of each design. Here is my first Christmas card:

Here are a few cards I made with my new cling stamp Silhouette flower. I was inspired by a girl's set of cards in the HA flickr group for these!

I will be back later after work to post supplies and techniques I used! Happy friday!
