Hi there! Hope your having a wonderful weekend! We had a busy day over here! This morning I took Ariel to the mall to see Strawberry Shortcake, she loved it! I remember when I was little having strawberry shortcake dolls and watching the show! Than I did a bit of shopping, picked up some new bathing suits for the kids, well two for Ariel! In the late afternoon we went to the Y for a birthday party for three of our friends kids, a bunch of friends went together to celebrate for there kids! It was a lot of fun the kids played in the play structure and jumper, had dinner and went swimming! Carter is a little fish and falling head first into the deep water did not phase him! And we were thrilled that Ariel is turning into a fish! She does very well at the beach but in a pool there often is a lot of tears, and screaming! She doesn't like the water to be too deep, but today she did amazing! She even told us that she would like to do swimming lessons, before she refused!
Today I have two birthday cards to share with you. They are both using my new Monster Fun set by HA, another one of my new sets. Love this set! I had to have it as I think it's so cute and thought it would be fun to make boy birthday cards, a lot of our friends have boys! The first is a long card, I have never made one of these before but thought it would be perfect way to use most of the monsters!
I don't know how to upload from flickr more than one card for a post, which is too bad as I fixed this card in flickr to be brighter! I colored the monsters with my derwent and prisma pencils, the long card right on the kraft and didn't blend it, but the second one on white and I did blend it. I was happy to find googly eyes at the dollar store as I think they are so fun! I got a multi size pack but will be needing a new pack as Ariel has been using them too, it's so cute the drawings she has made with her characters having googly eyes, and even she has glued them on her coloring sheets on animals and it really looks cute! The googly eyes has brought much joy to my home. Even Carter enjoys finding them and chewing on them, I was all wondering what is that noise, Carter! Of course I pull it out as fast as I can!
Life here has been busier since I have still been working more than usual, but this week it looks like only one shift so I look forward to crafting! The weather has been amazing and we have been outside a lot! There is warning that it may snow again but it melts fast enough! I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the weekend!
