Happy Wednesday! Hope your day has been good! Today I took my kids to stay and play at our church. My kids love it as it's a multi purpose room filled with lots of room to run and toys and bouncers to jump in! Such great new toys they have! I love it because I know or get to know everyone there, it's a great way to get out, and free starbucks coffee! And it's cool how Ariel loves it when I volunteer there, she always get so excited to help clean up! The weather is so nice outside that you don't need a jacket so afterwards 2 girl friends and I let our kids run around on the lawn while we sat and chatted! The afternoon ended nicely with naps by everyone! It was nice to relax and have a quiet house! We just finished supper here I made Chicken Cacciatore and it was pretty good, super easy if your interested in the recipe you can get it here.
Today I have another challenge card to share! Charlene and I challenged each other to make a fall card! Here is mine:
I needed to make my brother in law a birthday card and just wasn't feeling inspired! Than I saw this die cut already stamped from Scrapfest! One of the lovely ladies gave me an extra die cut all stamped! I had completely forgotten! Of course I was excited as I don't have that die, nor the stamp set. Although I did win the stamp set last week from the lovely Lin!!! Once I found this I was inspired! I stamped the happy birthday on it. I did one of my favorite techniques for it with my new quickuts embossing folder. I had seen this folder used by Ayana on her blog and wanted it for this technique and was so pleased that she told me what it was! I was so happy when I found the folder at Archiver's when I went to Scrapfest! I embossed the kraft than stamped the friends def on top with my fiskars stamp press! Added some buttons and voila!
Please make sure to check out Charlene's card here too!
I hope your having a great week and I will be back tomorrow with another challenge card!
