Hello! I am back from the cabin! We had a fabulous time! It was so nice to relax and spend time as a family! It was also a heat wave with what must have been the hottest day in a few years, 45 celius with humidity, around 118 F! I thought that laying in the hammock and reading a book was the best but I discovered that laying in a hammock with Ariel is even better, I loved our conversations!
I was so happy when I got home last night to see that one of my cards is a Fab 5 winner at the Hero Arts blog! Whooo hooo! What great news to come back home to! :>
Today I have a goodbye card to share with you. I came home from the cabin for the day on Tuesday since we had errands to do and found a package from Jennifer McGuire! I had one some HA stamps from her a bit ago! Later I called into my work to see if I have any shifts next week (I don't lol) and my manager who hired me told me that she is leaving! Actually a lot of people have been leaving and a lot of them are the mom's like me who stay at home with there kids and work there in the evenings. There kids are in school now, it's sad to lose them though! I've mentioned before that they should let me know so I could make goodbye cards (since I hardly work I often don't even realize that someone is leaving until they are gone!) And my managers have told me that they always think they should ask me but it's last minute usually! Since I knew and since it was my manager I really wanted to make her a card, and her last day was the next so I whipped this card up with a stamp that Jennifer sent me!
I wanted to try color blocking, I keep seeing it everywhere! So I took a 4 by 4 piece of white cardstock and glued four 1 inch strips to the panel and embossed in white the flower from the Flourish Leaves and Flower set by HA onto it. I wasn't sure how it would emboss with the paper lines but it did it beautifully! I used the set Typewriter letters to make the goodbye! :>
Oh I wanted to mention how well Carter is doing with potty training! He has been wearing underwear during the day for 3 weeks now! > He hardly has any accidents and in public always tells me when he has to go and goes anywhere! I am so proud of him! And so delighted how easy he was to train! He is even doing good at night waking up with a dry diaper almost always! I think I will continue to give him a diaper for a while though just in case! This went so much better than I had thought it would!
Well I better run and make dinner. I don't usually mind making dinner but today with hubby being out showing houses and just me and the kids I am not in the mood for it! Sadly I have no quick fixes so I gotta make a real dinner! Oh well it is healthier right?
