Well, the kids have a day off today. It is take you daughter/son to work day. Dave must of forgot. Cause the kids are still sleeping. Actually they are not old enough to go anyway.

We are going to have lunch with him today. Then off to the movies. We are going to go see Earth.

The card I am posting today is made with the stamp set Artfully Asian. I made this card for the ATC exchange.

Have a great day!

Soccer Saturday!

Today is the day! Soccer Saturday! Grace and Sam are looking forward to their first soccer games of the season. To tell you the truth so am I. It has been a long winter and I am ready for some fresh air.

Along with the ATC club I do an additional swap with some of the ladies there. This is one of the card I swaped yesterday.

Well, off to the fields, hope you can stop by!

Guess what!?!?!?!?!

Tomorrow is Soccer Saturday! We will be at the field at 9:00 am with Sam and at 3:00 pm with Grace. If you are looking for an excuse to get outside, come by and cheer the kids on. We would love to see you there. We will be on the U8 fields.

Today is my Artist Trading Card (ATC) club. I have joined a group of ladies who get together and swap ATC's once a month. An ATC is the size of a football/baseball card and you swap them with other artists. It is a great way to get ideas and to see new techniques. Each month there is a design theme. This month the theme was vintage. The cards I posted are what I will be trading. (Hope this did not spoil the surprise, Ruth.)

Have a great day!

Hi! Long time no blog! Guess who signed up on Facebook! Wow is that fun. I have been chatting with people I have not chatted with in ages! It has been a lot of fun catching up.

We were in Chicago last week, exploring the city. I really enjoy taking the train in with Dave and the kids. We always find something different to do. I am looking forward to the re-opening of the dolphin exhibit at the Shedd. I believe that happens next month. This time we got to ride the new double-decker train over. That was awesome. It was only the 7th trip it had taken.

Today's card is a get well card/thinking of you card that I made using Stampin' Up! stamp sets Inspired by Nature & God's Way. I used a brayer for the back ground. Other than just a normal Stampin' technique.

Hope you are all enjoying this beautiful day.

Spring Break in MI

We ended up getting First Communion clothes for the kids this weekend. I am glad to have those purchased. Grace looks beautiful in her white dress & veil. Sam looks all grown up in his suit. I tell you, enough to make a Mama cry!
Well, we are predicted to get a couple of inches of snow tonight. Must be Spring Break in MI. Yuck! What a long winter! We are going to go have coffee (well I am anyway) with Grandma this morning.

This is one of the Easter cards I sent out. It is made from the stamp set Glorious Gift.

Wow we do not have anything planned this weekend. Wonder what we will do.

This card is made with a retired stamp set, Glorious Gift. I cut out the flowers, applied Crystal Effects and raised them up a tad.

Spring Break....

This card was also made from SU set An Excellent Easter. I really like this set it reminds me of the classic tale of Brer Rabbit. I am also going to scrap book our Easter pages with it. It is a very cute set, be sure to check it out.

Have a great day!

Thanks for stopping by.

Well, we are getting anxious for spring break at our house. Spring Break starts on Friday. Woo Hoo! You know what comes after Spring Break! Summer Vacation! Ah, the lazy days of summer, no schedules to keep just hot days at the beach! Oooooo, I can't wait for the kidos to be out of school.

Did I mention that Sam was doing a wrestling clinic at the high school? He has had a lot of fun doing this clinic. He seems to really like wrestling.

This is the birthday card I made for my hubby for his birthday last week.
