Happy Thursday! Very much looking forward to this long weekend celebrating Easter! It's still absolutely beautiful outside and Carter and Ariel are playing together quite happily outside in the sunshine!
It's been a great day today as one of my cards won Fab 5 at the Hero Arts blog for March's contest! Whooo hooo I love Hero Arts and it really made my day! :>
I wanted to stop by and share a masculine card using my favorite masculine stamp Watch Gears. Since I'm using my favorite masculine stamp I am entering this card into A Blog Named Hero's challenge of playing favorites!
I am also entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp challenge of Use your favorite tool! I did my heat gun of course!
I recently discovered Claudine Hellmuth's sticky back canvas, well I should say rediscovered as I did take a class with her at Scrapfest that used the canvas! :> It's soo easy to stamp on. Heat embossing on it is a breeze and works just as well as paper! Distressed it with ink too and the edges!
Today has been a nice relaxing day. Yesterday late afternoon the spring cleaning bug hit me and I went crazy cleaning up the house until I dropped. Finished up this morning. Carter and I enjoyed playing outside. I can see he is so much happier since it's nice out. He goes around and joins which ever kid is outside and plays with them! I think since he is young he doesn't get that he isn't always wanted! LOL Yesterday he played baseball with the neighbor kids and I heard the mom say "Okay it's Carter's turn to bat everyone go back!" And sure enough he can hit it far! He really excels at sports!
I have a sweet photo from the other day when Carter wasn't feeling well. Ariel was sitting on the couch near Chad and Carter went to cuddle her:
