Hello Feathers!

Hello!  Happy Wednesday!  Just over a week of summer left here and we are not looking forward to school starting up again!  It's HOT HOT HOT here and we have been enjoying every minute of it!  Lots and lots of swimming fun!  In fact thought I would stop by and blog before we go to the pool with my sister in law!  Got to enjoy each moment of summer while we can!  

Today I have a card to share using a new stamp set by WPlus9 Design Studio Fanicful Feathers!  It's actually not my set it's my crafty friend Leighs!  A few Saturdays ago Leigh invited me to a local crop and I went for a few hours with her!  It was so much fun to get to know her better and craft with her!  She is so talented and a great person, I am lucky to live close to her!  Here is the card I created:

I stamped the feathers in Fresh Peach, Mint and Wet Cement Hero Arts inks!  I die cut the Hello by My Favorite Things but first inked up the piece of cardstock with the fresh peach ink (at Leigh's suggestion!)  Had to add some enamel dots as I love them!  

I am entering this card into this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge of Anything Goes!

And here is a photo of the two of us:

Last week Carter turned 5!  Yes 5!  When I started this blog it was just before his 1st Birthday!  The time really has gone so quickly!  He has grown up but is still my little boy!  Next week he starts kindergarten, he will go two full days one week and 3 full days the next.  I am glad to still have time with him!  Carter is a busy, lovable, full of energy, makes friends with everyone, and life of the party boy!  He is so much like me as a child but a boy!  He loves chatting with everyone and is always introducing himself to people and he loves chatting with the neighbors!  When he wants something he is relentless which can be a hard trait for us the parents but as he grows up I look forward to seeing how he works that!  He loves his sister so much!  Beware if you hurt someone Carter loves as he will protect them!

For his birthday we took 15 kids (plus my two) so 17 kids to see the new movie Planes!  It was busy but fun and I think all the kids had so much fun!  Here is some photos:

 My friend Sophie made for me the cupcake wrappers and toppers!  Didn't they turn out cute?

Well that's it for me today!  I am off to pack up for swimming!
