Hello again! :) I'm so proud of my kiddos, I have to brag for a sec. Trev is taking his first college courses this semester and he's really surprised me with his level of motivation and commitment. Pleasantly surprised me. I'm totally happy for him, even though he wants to join the National Guard. I've got mixed feelings about that, but I try to just be supportive and look on the bright side - like the fact that he'd learn to clean up after himself. LOL Cass is in 11th grade and she's doing fabulous - she comes home and sits with me and does homework, she is proud of herself and looking forward to good grades. I'm so happy that I have kids who like their parents - LOL - really, though. I enjoy their company, I love having talks with them, they're just such good kids, turning into good young adults. :) What more could I ask for?
Well I have a few cards for you today - I was a super busy girl this past weekend and have PLENTY of eye candy for the week! AND I got my house cleaned - how's that for multi-successful? hee hee First up is my card for the:
I used the handsome Carpenter Joe with his toolbox and hammer - colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and Copic markers. Background is blueprints I found online for a plane. LOL I love that hammer brad that I had in my stash, too, and was dying for an excuse to use it! :)
Next up is for a challenge I wasn't even going to try because I loathe sewing. ROFL But I love these images and must make every attempt to win some more, so I gave it a shot. hee hee This is for the:
I used the sweet Hello Kitty image, colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and Prismacolor markers. Background paper is from Tiddly Inks, stickers are from SRM Stickers. I stitched the heart onto the background paper with a thick silver thread - presto, I'm a seamstress. hee hee
And last for today - today is my day to post over at the Just Some Lines blog - here is the sweet card I made for that:
This bird matched well with some designer paper and chipboard stickers I had leftover from Crate Paper. I colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and used Kraft cardstock.
Have a great week, my friends. Peace.
