Hello! It's Easter Monday! Hope you had a wonderful Easter! Today the kids didn't have school as they attend a Christian school (Easter Monday is an approved religious holiday!) It's great as Easter is always busy! We enjoyed a morning at home where I crafted a bit (finding I craft the best in the morning now) and than we spent the afternoon at the Children's Museum (they love it there!) Today I made this spring card:
I love this color combo! I started by slightly inking up the edges of the card with Hero arts Tide Pool ink. Than I die cut Chloe's Stem by Memory Box with bright yellow bazill cardstock and Hawaiian shores cardstock by PTI. The polka dots stamped about is from Sweet Stamp Shops Kiss Me set and the sentiment is from Mama's Elephant! I used Hero arts Wet Cement and Tide Pool inks along with Memento's Dandelion! And this may be my first card using washi. Yes I did say my first card While I've had washi for a while I haven't used it. Not sure why. BUT on Saturday while browsing a local selling site I happened to see someone selling a whole bunch of washi at a great price. And who could resisit?
And since this is my first card using washi I may as well enter it into Cath's Moxie Fab World the Washi Tape Challenge! Oh and also entering this into Simon Says Stamps Anything Goes challenge, I know I am not the only one who dreams of winning that prize!
Last week we went and had Spring photos of the kids in there Easter clothes! Wow they turned out amazing! Here is a snap I took of the photo:
I started this blog the day before Carter turned one and he is 4 and a half already! Ariel is 7 and almost a half so I know for some of you you can really see how they are growing up and thinking how fast it is! It really is! Chad and I really saw it when looking at the proofs we kept commenting on how much older they looked! I love this photo it really is the sweetest!
