cutting up Ariel's old shirt...

Hi!  Today I have a card for the EKBS challenge of using fabric!  I was quite excited about this challenge but also dreading it!  I really wanted to play and knew that I had would use some of Ariel's old clothing, but I don't like cutting up her clothes!  I searched through what I had  left and picked a shirt, it had a small stain on it so that's why I picked it, I couldn't cut up a nice shirt knowing someone else could wear it! I am aso going to submit this card for the Simon's Says Mother's Day, Girly challenge. 



'This is the shirt I cut up (I thought it would be fun to see)

I cut out three fowers from the shirt that I liked and were alone in design.  I stamped the kraft with an HA stamp with versamark, I really like how it looks!  I cut out the fowers and attached buttons in the center. I was really unsure if I preffered it with or without the buttons but I think it looks better with!  I used the HA sentiment so happy for you since I am going to give this card to a friend who just announced she is expecting!
This past weekend we had 3 little girl birthday parties, and another this upcoming weekend so I will be back to share the cards I made for them, just finishing the last one.  On sunday I took Ariel to the symphony! It was really good, the hour before there were all sorts of musical games.'  The symphony was How the Gymquat found her song  It was perfect for children as there were puppets, Ariel enjoyed it.  That evening I thought it was strange when Ariel didn't want to eat her supper and at 7:30 told us she was so tired, I didn't have a nap you know so I am going to sleep.  But was a busy weekend so I suppose it made sense, my parents stopped by after she went to bed and she came and cuddled them but than went back to bed!  A litte while later I checked on her and found that she had thrown up!  We woke her up and cleaned her. She got sick a bit more but has been fine since. This morning Ariel woke us up by telling us that Carter threw up, 'I tried to clean it but didn't get everything'!  Wow what a wonderful little girl she is to try to clean it up herself!  It turns out that a lot of the familes who attended one of the birthday parties '(we celebrated two birthdays at one) have been sick!  What makes it even stranger is that my friend had two parties, one for famiy and one for friends and people from both have been sick!  That is some stomach fu, the hosts family had been sick but days earlier!  Chad and I have been fine although my tummy has hurt on and off today. I hope I am fine as I have to volunteer in the morning.

Oh and I do have a story to share with you. This morning I was sitting on the computer reading your blogs and Carter started to pull the furnace filter in and out of the furnace. I quicky stopped him but he did it a few more times. The furnace turns on and the fan starts making this funny sound. I freak out and call my hubby but he is busy with work and can't chat so I call my dad.  While caing my dad Carter gets up on my chair and spills a bit of my coffee on the keyboard, which has resulted in the letter l   not working and other randmon probems!  My dad came a few hours later turns off the furnace opens the sides and puts his hand in and tells me that he can feel something.  After a bit he pulls out a Dora coloring sheet!  My dad said Carter must have put it in on the side and than while pushing the filter in and out pushed it in! Thankfully I was home and did notice that it made such a funny sound and so blessed that my dad could come so fast to fix it!  Ariel's response was, that's okay I was done coloring that picture!

Hope that your week is amazing!  I will be a better blogger this week, I got into cleaning last week!

That is a great story! Kids are so funny and just too smart to be such little people. So sorry you have all been sick. Carver had that ole stomach bug right after his bday. Michael and I both got sick but not throwing up like he did... our tummy's just weren't right for a few days and we felt yucky! Hope everyone is better soon! Great card and awesome way to get your hands on some fabric! :) I should have looked through C's clothes!
