Hello all who read my blog....I have been running around doing all kinds of things, just this weekend we went to Relay for Life, the Boat club, swimming and had a father's day feast!!!! Speaking of Father's day, I'm setting here watching "The Grand Torino" with 3 of my 6 favorite men. My dad, my husband, and my son, I love them sooo much, now I'm just missing my brothers :P My father's day cards are simple yet I totally love this color combo. My Dad is truly the BEST FATHER EVER!!!! My husband is learning from him and I am so blessed to have them in my life!!! I made this frame out of an old screen that my husband wanted to trash, telling me " you'll never do anything with it..." I just stamped it with stazon and used a stampin up alphabet stamp set and a unity bg stamp, printed off some of my favorite pics from this year and stapled them to the screen. I topped it off with some cute stickers and it is now mounted on my living room wall. I'm very proud of it!!!!!

Today is the actual day of our 6 year anniversary, and it really seems like yesterday I was going out with the girls and swearing off relationships when I hit on my husband.....and then we got married!!!!! I don't know where to start about my wonderful husband, don't get me wrong, we aren't always the "perfect couple," but we get through the tough stuff and keep on truckin'. To me marriage is like coloring a picture, you are bound to mess up at some point but you just fix it and make the picture look better than when you started. My husband is helping my dad coach American legion baseball, as he has for the past 5 summers, he has grown as a dad, a coach, a role model, and as a man. I am proud that he is with me, even if I don't always tell him this. Why is it that we don't tell the people closest to us how much we need them.....I think I don't b/c Kev acts like I'm just trying to be Corny....but I don't know where I would be today without him. Aside from everything he is, we also have made the most hansome little boy, who has also changed the world we lived in. Thank you Kevin, I love you soooooooooooooooo much!!!!
The card is an extra large image that I printed off from the Greeting Farm, I even included a mole for the finishing touches. I tried once again for the challenge, because I would love to win 3 stamp sets!!!! The challenge is to only use one layer and some embellishments....so I decide that the image it's self could be the card.... I hope you have a great Sunday, we have 2 birthdays : one at the Zoo and one at the pool, possibly 2 ball games that I may only get to one, and I would like to fix something for my husband to celebrate.... We went out to eat Friday thanks to my brother Adam and my sister in law Marcee, who had a slumber party with Easton and then on Saturday we went to 3 ball games starting at 8am and ending at 8pm, plus Easton and I played at 2 parks, he took a nap, I finished father's day cards and cleaned the house and after the last game my mom and dad took us out to eat...just in case you were wondering why I have been posting.....Later.

I am a little slow at editing my pics and I haven't really made any great cards...well actually I do have some I just need to take a picture and post them... I keep falling out of time, or at least I have don't have time to post and make as many cards. We've been swimming, almost everyday....and now I watch my brother's daughter so that makes it 3 kids, 2 dogs, and a Bunny....house work....you know the rest. So here are a few pics of my thousands that I have taken of my parents party and Easton's Tee ball practice...tons more to come if I ever get time off...not likely anytime soon. Plus my helpful Husband helps coach with my dad during the summer and is hardly ever home in the summer, I really miss him, however I don't have to eat a whole meal and can do whatever I want, including talk on the phone. But I haven't gotten home before 9 in the last 2 weeks...so.... not too much had gotten done in the way of card making. We are having fun other ways!!! Catch ya later!!!!
