Hi! It's been too long! I hope that everyone is more than well! I appologize for my lack of updating, I have missed you! I have been creative! Here is my card that I entered into the Hero Arts challenge:
I needed a baptism card and was inspired by this one by Mary Dawn who was inspired by Maile Belles! When I saw hers all I could think of was why didn't I think of that? Oddly the bottom color of paper is a fuscia pink, not red as it may look!
Products used: 1st card: American Crafts pp, HA Leaf Prints, Cling Dots HA, Cling Butterflies HA, Bazill cardstock, moss green colorbox, PTI ink, distress ink, scallop punch SU, making memories button.
I also recieved a wonderful card in the mail from my fellow blogging friend Virginia Lu! I was so excited to recieve it! My husband told me I had some mail and when I saw it I knew right away! It was so fun to recieve a handmade card from such a wonderful person! Thank you so much Virginia I treasure it so! I have it sitting on my window ledge above my sink so I can see it all day, here it is:
Isn't it so cute? Check out Virgnia's blog for more inspiration!
Life here has been busy. I have worked a lot this past week, I usually work only a shift or two a week, in the evening or a saturday and I usually don't work more than 5 hours. I enjoy getting out making a bit of money which I than spend back on my children as I work in a children's clothing store! And being able to chat with people, I usually work as a cashier and I don't know what it is but I like working with the cash! But this past week I worked 5 shifts! 25 hours! I got called in for 3 extra shifts and today was a full day! Things were busy and some stuff went down at work so people may have been grumpy. And I am a sensitve person so that always doesn't go well for me! I may be up for more hours this coming week as it's spring break. I have so many wonderful ideas in my head for creating right now and 5 new stamp sets but no time. Hopefully tommorow I won't have to work and can be creative after church.
I do have some cute stories to share about my children! Last week Carter had a rough night, he had a runny nose which lead to coughing all night long and his crying! Chad and I kept going to him. Ariel told us in the morning that Carter had woken her up when it was dark and he was crying so she went to his room and turned on his music for him and gave him back his soother and he went back to sleep. How sweet is that:? It totally touched my heart! Carter himself is a sweetheart too. A few days ago Ariel was crying since she hurt herself and I was holding her and cuddling her and Carter kept coming to her and tried to kiss her and hug her and console her himself! He is just 19 months, what an amazing heart he has! I love how well they get along!
I just realized I still have the ribbon tutorial to do! Ack I will get on it this week! I also have soup to share and will do so this week! Happy what's left of the weekend! Thank you for all your sweet comments on my kids! Just wait until easter. :>
