Here are some of my cards for our March card party




We (Heather,Tasha, and I are planning a card party in March and I have been trying to get a few cards done for it. I came up with one for the Mothers, (which has the Stitched background by stampin up that you can't see for the base and then the Bella stamp), the next one was for the boys using the dinosaurs stamp from stampin up and finally one for friends using She's all that from stampin up and boho backgrounds...they are simple yet eye pleasing, I think....
Now for the family details..this was the first day of Story Hour for this year, they read books about Kansas and made sunflowers while I checked out books and talked to Heather about my new copics....Which I am sooooooooooooooooooo excited to use!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I colored only one stamped image that I will make a card out of later. Easton was calling him "baby easton" and putting him to sleep under other pieces of paper. Whatever his little creative mind wants to do with my stamped images....the other night I made 4 campers and stamped images that Easton was putting in them, I'll have to get a photo of that :) We were playing "scrapbooking" as he likes to call it. He sits on my lap and I stamp, he also stamps and mostly plays with what I create....it works. Anyways we went to the museum where Easton played for awhile but the boiler was broken so we didn't stay as long as planned...they have different areas for youngsters dress up and become someone of the past. They have a clothes line, a little house with olden parts like an ice box and a cast iron stove, plus a country store, old school, things you would have seen on "little house on the prairie". I ran some errands, stamped while Easton took a nap, cleaned, went to the store, ate, gave Zeze the dog a bath, cleaned the house, and sat down to watch American Idol....while organizing my pile of paper and putting backing on my Lilly and Billy stamps...now time for bed!!! I am on my brothers laptop laying with Easton as I do every night along with reading books and saying prayer, Easton wanted to know who I am writting this to and so I read it to him, he wanted me to add that he played with playdough. He wanted to know if we are going to put this letter outside "to mail it", I am going to explain to him that this is as much for him as anyone. Because I work in Oncology, I know that all of our days are numbered, so if anything every happens to me, my son will have something to remember "ME". This is me.

Emily these are fantastic!! I love that rose card it is beautiful and the dinosaurs with the background are so fun for a little boy. Of course the pink and black card though is totally awesome!! You did such a great job! I really wish I lived near you so I could take this class! Can't wait to see your first copic cards!

Hey, I guess I didn't look at these when I came to see Ian the other day. I think they will have fun making these at the workshop!! Your fun cards make mine look so prim and proper. ;) Oh well, it's a good mix to have 3 designers I think. Hope you got to enjoy the beautiful weather today!
