Dazzling Rose!

Hello my Crafty Friends!  If you are looking for the Made with Love Blog hop please scroll down or click here.  

Today I have a dazzling card to share!  Sequins are quite trendy right now and I found this awesome sequin trim at the fabric store so I had to get some!

I stamped the snow dots background stamp by Hero Arts with slate ink by Close to My Heart.  I stamped the tea flower also by HA with black stazon ink and than water colored it with tattered angels spray mist and a small paint  brush.  Stamped the sentiment from Many Birthdays by HA, I think this sentiment is a great pair to sequins! Added the sequin trim in the light pink and silver, pulled some sequins off the thread and placed the around.  I love this card, it's quite me!  :>

Happy to share that the Valentine's sent to school were a big hit!  Remember how I fretted over the milk, egg and peanut allergy in Carter's class and sent suckers.  He did bring chocolate home, why do I worry?  Ariel's class loved the treats!  I'm glad I took the extra time to make them as there weren't too much treats for there party!  While I try to limit my kids sugar and teach them healthy eating I am not one to freak out about sugar and treats for a Valentine's Party!  Chad and I enjoyed an afternoon date seeing Identity Thief as both kids were in school!  It was so funny and I enjoyed our time together!  Spent the evening celebrating with the kids!  I made cupcakes as a surprise while they were in school! Finished the night off with a pink smoothies bananas and strawberries, I may have thrown in a carrot too...  So fun to see them look through there Valentines with glee!  We bought the kids each a book instead of chocolate, for Carter and Lego Ninjago book (which he has carried around everywhere since) and for Ariel a Thea Stitlon book.  She declared that this was the best Valentine's Ever all because she got a book!  We've been going to the library regularly but she says she much prefers to have books than borrow them, she wants to collect them!  Meanwhile there is me when we moved I donated ALL my books and got rid of them, I much prefer my kobo! 

Well I am off!  Busy Saturday spent over here cleaning up the house and skating lessons!  Carter is finally starting to skate without help and still waiting for Ariel to figure out how to glide!  :>  They are both playing fabulously in the basement that Chad just cleaned (how long will that last?) So I am off to relax!  :>
