And than after making the first card I had an idea and made a second:
I thought that the scallop border punch by EK Sucess made some great hills for the trees! What I also did for the trees was to stamp the middle tree first lower and than the last trees afterwards higher (worked best with the scallops) How I did that was by covering the two small trees with scotch tape and stamping the whole stamp into the pad, and than taking the tape off and stamping it on the paper. Than cleaning the stamp with a baby wipe and this time putting the tape on the middle tree. And once again stamping the whole stamp into the pad and peeling off the tape and stamping the two smaller trees where I wanted them. I hope this makes sense, I often do this if I don't want to stamp the whole stamp. I really liked the idea of stamping the words with different colored inks and with the script being last it worked by just carefully stamping the brown first only the "birthdays are the" and stamping "best" after carefully in the green, super easy!

I am so happy to share that on thursday night I took Ariel to Disney On Ice, Princesses! For some reason I had completely missed that it was coming and than saw on facebook a lot of people were going. I shared with my hubby how much I wanted to take Ariel and how I knew she would love it! On thursday afternoon Chad was in the area near the arena where the show was so he went there and got some great tickets! We had 3rd row! It was such a great show! I am so happy that it all worked out and that Ariel had such an amazing time!
I do have a funny story to share about Ariel. I had been babysitting my friends two kids, I do it once in a while. Ariel and J (who is a boy but I won't share his full name) were playing in her room with the door closed, which is fine they are both 4 and they do it because they don't want the littler kids to bother them, Carter would be right there sitting on the bed with them otherwise! I went to check on them. J is sitting on the foot of the bed reading a book with Ariel's tag, totally absorbed in it. Ariel was laying in her bed covered with her blanket. I see the doctor stuff out, so I move the blanket to discover, well I am sure you know what I discovered! I asked her why and she said because J said so, he actually had his checkup the week before! I told them both that they aren't supposed to do that and had quite the laugh! Kids really can be kids sometimes and there innocence is so sweet!
Well I have been writing this tonight on and off as I watched the Ice Dancing! And I am so thrilled that Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir did so amazingly and won gold! Another gold for Canada! The first in Ice Dancing ever! And what a great pair, so young with 20 and 22! Yay! I really enjoyed watching the Ice Dancing!
