Happy Saturday! We don't have anything major planned today, but I actually kind of like those days! :-) The older kids are helping DH move some cows so I will have some one on one with my two little ones (or should I say one on two...LOL!)! It's been too long since I've "played" with them for the good majority of a day, and I'm really looking forward to it! Bryan (who is 5) is just as smart and sweet as they come...and never ceases to amaze me with the ideas he can come up with! And David (who is 3)...wow, how do I describe our David in just one sentence? LOL! He's a bundle of energy (and according to Bryan runs like he has fire on his pants ROFLOL!!) and he always seems to have a bit of a mischievous twinkle in his eyes! Anyway, I LOVE spending time with them...they are amazing little guys! :-)
Remember a few days ago I mentioned that I had made a card using the new In Color Soft Suede? Well, it is hands down my favorite of the new In Colors and I can't wait to have more time to play and pair it with more colors! :-)
For today's card, I went very, very simple (check me out...stepping out of my "box" and all :-). I used the bold damask image from the Friends 24-7 set (Stampin' Up!). For a pop of color, I added some flowers that I made using the Birds & Blooms Sizzlits die and the new Bermuda Bay card stock. Note: please don't look too closely at my stitching...my sewing machine is a little "sick" right now (in fact, I had to take it to the sewing machine doctor).
O.k...that's it from me today! I hope you all have a wonderful and relaxing weekend! ~Laurie
