Well, we survived Monday! I wasn't feeling very good yesterday and was pretty much down for the count all day. I am SO thankful I was at my mom and dad's for most of yesterday and my mom let me sleep in the afternoon and made all the meals for my boys. My parents are so good to me! What would I do without them? Today I feel MUCH better! My mom and I took the boys to the beach this morning for a bit (picture below). The water here is very low due to a severe drought so there wasn't much water in the Ottawa River for them to have fun in...at least the marked off swimming area but they still managed to have fun!
Okay...I used the jar again. I can't help myself...I LOVE it! I am not using it for my Freshly Made Sketches card this week though...I promise! Today's card is for the Dynamic Duos and Create with Connie and Marie challenges. I needed to kill two birds with one stone today! I love Early Espresso and Crumb Cake! They have to be my favourites! The new Early Espresso Core'dinations cardstock has to be one of my favourites. I didn't have an SU sanding block handy but my mom did happen to have some sandpaper in her craft room today!
Cardstock: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla
DSP: Natural Composition Specialty
Stamps: Perfectly Preserved
Ink: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Other: Cannery Set Framelits Dies, Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder, Early Espresso Ribbon, Adorning Accents Edgelits, Bitty Banners Framelits Dies, Dimensionals, Basic Pearls
Caleb and my mom are planning an Olympic party to have later this week. Today Caleb decided he wanted to make flags for different countries for decoration for this party. So this afternoon he and my mom made all 13 of these cute flags. I thought he'd maybe sit through 2 but he did all 13. She cut the paper and he glued it all together! It was so sweet! I can't wait for the party on Thursday!
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
