Pumeria Mother's Day Card

Hello!  Happy Tuesday!  Thought I would pop in and blog as the kids play outside.  It's a gorgeous day outside and I can't get the kids to come inside!  :>

Today I have a card to share using the new Plumeria Basic Grey papers and matching Hero Arts stamps.  I made this card because I felt like painting the flowers:


I embossed the flowers in white and painted them with inks and water mixed with perfect pearls.  I so enjoy this technique!  Now that April is here I gotta focus on Mother's Day Cards! One of my favorites to make!

I am entering this card into Lily Pad's Flower's Challenge!  Love this challenge with all my new flower stamps I am entering it often!  And this week's Simon Says stamp challenge of anything goes!

I have a cute photo to show you.  While the kids were playing outside a MB Hydro truck came to look at our light.  It hasn't been working well so we were really happy to see him!  And that he came when the kids were playing outside was great!  They loved watching him!  And I enjoyed hearing there screams of delight!!  Ariel said "He can't go up in that he will fall out!"  Carter came in the house and asked for a chair so Chad gave him one of the kid chairs.  When I checked on them this is what I found:


He was using the chair to help him be higher to see the worker!  When I snapped the photo I missed the worker being up in the bucket!  :>  

Oh I do have one more funny tidbit for you, Carter's favorite thing to do on a schoolday is finish Ariel's lunch!  He goes to her backpack digs it out and you hear him say with glee LUNCH LUNCH!  Yes obviously it's because I don't feed him enough!!!  It's healthy lunches today was a sandwich, strawberries, snowpeas, and dried apricots!  Silly boy!

Well I am off!  Working with Ariel on music theory and practicing as she has a lesson tomorrow!
