Hello! Happy Tuesday! :> It's snowing here and is so beautiful outside! We are coming off a long weekend! Ariel actually had 4 days off school as Friday was a pd day and Monday here was Louis Riel Day. Many other provinces it was family day! The province decided that a long weekend in February was needed and so came Louis Riel Day (a famous explorer!)
On Friday night my brother called and told me he needed a bridal shower card! So I got to work and played with a new stamp:
I embossed Tea Flower by Hero Arts with chestnut zing embossing powder. Than I colored it in with inks using perfect pearls mixed water and a paint brush. I really enjoyed coloring it in this way! I used some pp by My Mind's Eye and am entering this into the current Lily Pad challenge which is to use up your pp! Here's a close up on the flower:
We had such a great long weekend. On Friday Carter was so happy to have Ariel home with him and they enjoyed playing outside! I gave them a bath afterwards and made some homemade bath paint and it worked so well. Here is the recipe:
1/3 cup body, baby wash or dish soap (I used aveeno body wash)
1 tbspoon cornstarch
Mix together put into ice cube tray and add food coloring drops to make color. Use fingers to paint the bath tub away!
On Friday night we went as a family to a friends for dinner and she had invited other friends to so I enjoyed some girl time as the guys watched the Jets game (NHL Hockey) On Saturday we went to my parents for dinner and went sledding at the hill I sledded as a child! Yesh walking up the hill is so much more tiring now as an adult! On Sunday Chad's parents had the "little" grand children over for a sleepover so Chad and I went on a date!!! We saw this movie:
And we both really liked it! Perfect date movie as there something you both will love! Totally suggest it for date night! We enjoyed sleeping in Monday morning. Although I only slept till 8:30 but it was nice to wake up on your own not to a little one! Monday afternoon we took the kids to our church, they had an amazing family fun day! A few bouncers, fun food and wagon rides outside! It was fun to see so many people and the kids really had fun! We finished the day with my brother and his fiance coming over for dinner, love her can't wait for her to join our family! What a great long weekend! :>
A few weeks ago I finished up an order for 3 wreaths from a friend. She picked all the colors and I am really happy with how it came out.
What do you think? I really enjoy making them and have a cool idea up my sleeve! Well I am off to get the kids ready for bed. While I typed up this post they were downstairs playing a computer game (once Ariel does her piano and school work if there is time she can play a bit!) Have a great week!
