summer fun and classy wedding

Hi all!  It's almost the weekend!  Hope you have had a great week!  Today I have two very different cards to share with you!  My first is a fun summery one, that I made for the Card Style Fun and Cute Challenge in the Moxie Fab World challenge, and it works for Wee Memories Summer Fun challenge!  




I love the banner, I have been eyeing and loving banner's for a while now and was so happy to finally get one in my new Hero Arts stamp set, a kiss from the sun!  I stamped the banner on various bright fun summery colored cardstock and put some stickles for glitter, and placed it on the floss with popup dots.  I also stamped the sky in a bright blue and cut out and popped up various clouds (I love to do that!)  

My next card is for another Moxie Fab challenge, the Card Style Classy and Elegant Challenge in the Moxie Fab World




This card also fits the challenge at Off the Wall Craftiness.  I embossed in white the flower and than "colored" the image with my stamp pad, and than sprayed with a mixture of water and perfect pearls.  It's sooo fun!  My first time doing so!  I will be honest with you though, every time I open my perfect pearls container I can't help but think that it's really makeup, I used to wear glimmer like that!  I wonder if it would work the same?
Well I can't go having a summery fun card without sharing some fun summer activity photos of the two cute ones I get to call my own can I?  I am sure I could but I know that maybe at least ONE of you would like to see my cuties.  These will make you laugh.  Yesterday we went to a wading pool that also had a slide for the first time this year.  Carter loved it and kept going up and down even with how cold the water was!  I don't think Ariel would have gone on the slide if her baby brother didn't! It's hard to see but her tongue is hanging out!  Both me and Chad wee surprised when we saw that!

Our church had a summer fun day and the kids had a blast!  I don't think Carter enjoyed the train ride all that much:

Poor little guy that was the sunday that for some reason he cried for 45 minutes in his nursery class (they finally called me than, I had never been called ever before!)    He went home for a nap after this!

Isn't she the sweetest?  Ariel loves chicks!  I think she would have taken her home if she could!

This is one of my facvorite's of Ariel's outfits!  

Well I better run!  The weekend is just about here!  I will leave you with this cute photo of Ariel and her cousin, she told him that he should hold her hand so that he wouldn't get lost!
