Plumeria Thank You

Hello there!  Hope you've had a great weekend!  I am typing up this post just after putting the kids to bed!  Ariel is out for the count but Carter since he takes a nap is still fooling around!  :>

On Friday I was delighted to get happy mail from Paper Crafts that one of my cards was picked up for the Holiday Cards and More Volume 7!!  It was a busy day for me and when I came home from picking up Ariel to that email it made it so much better!  :>  When I created for that call I was supposed to be studying for my test.  But breaks are part of good studying (right?) I was happy that a card got picked up and that I aced my test! 

Today I have a card to share using Plumeria's papers and some of the Hero Arts stamps that go along with it.  I love coloring the flowers in by "painting" them with inks:

I am entering this card into this week's Simon Says Stamps challenge of Anything Goes!  :>


We had a great weekend.  On Thursday my Mother in law asked me if she could take the kids to the cabin for the night on Friday.  Ummm....of course!  She took the "little" grandkids all 5 of them and barely fit them in the van!  Chad and I enjoyed some time together and went for dinner!  :>  I was looking forward to sleeping in but sadly could not!  :<  On Saturday instead of crafting or reading a book you know some me time I spent a lot of time organizing the kids toys.  And I enjoyed it.  I also cleaned up and organized quite a bit! It was nice to have that time together but the house felt sooo quiet!  

The kids came home pink and Ariel had a caterpillar! Each of the 6 year olds each got one!  Ariel is enjoying her pet and is constantly holding it or letting it crawl up her!  I told her that she has a fish that is her pet and she said "But Mommy this is an insect and I love bugs!'  Say WHAT?  Wasn't it just last summer that you would run inside and tell me that you didn't want to play on your swing because there were bugs?  I guess we shall see... 

Saturday night we had some friends and there kids over and today I did some work with Chad!  :>  And we visited with my parents.  My mom made ribs for dinner, she really knows the way to Chad's heart!

Well I am off. I have a wreath just calling my name telling me "Only 2 more flowers and I am done!"  Till next time! :>
