It's going to be a wonderful week!

Hi friends!  This week is going to be such a wonderful week for me as Jill Foster who has a great blog called Inspired By... is inspired by me!  You can check it out here  I am sure you know how thrilling this is for me!  Jill is super talented and always features such talented people on her blog I am shocked that she picked me! And honored, and giddy with happiness!  I am looking forward each day to seeing what card of mine she has picked and to see her amazing card she makes! 

Hope that your weekend went well.  Mine was quite busy with a great girls night out, got home at 1:40 am since we last track of time and well girls love to talk!  And a couple friend of ours and there kids came over Sunday night so that was fun!  The weather is so very hot and humid over here that today I didn't go outside with the kids!  It's just way too hot and I thought we needed a break from it.  I am so thankful that we have air conditioning for sure right now!

Today I have a fun card to share with you:



My mother in law gave me the legs of an old pair of jeans (I think she made shorts) and right away I thought of stamping this pant stamp on them!  All the clothes are fabric, the bright pink is an old tank top of Ariel's, and the dress is from some bloomers of hers!  I stamped them with staz on and it worked fine!  I thought it would be fun to have them hanging off the branch but wanted the branch to be longer so I stamped part of the branch and than using post it notes stamped the rest.

When I went to look for the card photo I saw some photos I took on Saturday night:



This is my view as I chased Carter down the street!  He is super fast he got quite far!  I don't usually let him walk around the house but that morning he did this:


He got into the flour!  And than he got another outfit all wet and I was tired of dressing him and was about to put him in his pj's when Ariel let him outside!  (I was bbqing and she was joining me)  It was quite funny to see him running around with only his diaper on!  The neighbors thought it was quite funny also! 

Have a great week!  Time for me to go to bed!
