Here is my second attempt at this card, am much happier with this card...I think :p! I LOVE that flower stamp :), okay I will stop talking about that butterfly flower stamp now before I make Julie mad.
Here is a card that I cased from a card I saw over on Christina Fischer's blog, so I thought I would use it to make my own card. Turned out really well, just not the look I was going for I don't think and so I set out again to make the card I was hoping to make. The flower there, is infact made up of butterflies Julie and I got it from Dejahs (enabler alert there)!! Actually, she has a lot of new butterfly stamps...sorry Jim had to tell her and enable her :p!!

Parent teacher night went really well last night, they told me they were quite impressed with how much our son has changed from his arrival until now especially with him on his diet. He is now starting to get the hang of letters (picking out the letters in his name, writing his name), numbers, shapes, and colors (patterns) :)! Before going to his preschool, before the diet he wouldnever ever be interested in these things he'd only be interested in balloons, water/sand play, puzzles, bubbles. Now he is painting, coloring, doing some imaginative play, is able to use his words now for how he feels and what is bothering him :)! They feel he is ready for Primary this year ( I am antsy), and we are starting on getting in touch with the school etc. to get the ball rolling to get a team set up for him.

Tonight is going to be what one might call a hectic night, as soon as my dh comes home with our middle child I have to run out the door. My middle son's preschool is having his parent teacher night tonight, so I have to hurry in to get there for 6:50 p.m. (I will be cutting it close let me tell you). I am hoping that this won't take long, because all of my crafty gal friends are having a crafty night over at Deborah's again. So of course I have to be there too :)! As soon as my parent teacher session is done, I will be heading over to the crafty night. Tonights theme is to bring a "Spring" themed card with you (one you made), and wow this one was a toughy for me. It was a toughy, because I have lost or misplaced my cardmaking mojo *sigh* what a time for it to disappear!!

Check this out, I got this from Antje's blog and I sent her off a quick e-mail asking for the template for this MUST have project :)! This morning when I got up I found that she had written me back, and included the template for this cup (thank you so much Antje). I printed this template off and here is what I created so far, going to play around with it a bit more then post the end product tonight. I couldn't wait I am sorry to show you this neat idea, lol, that is why I am posting this first and end product later :D!

So, on that note I wanted to make a cute little box I saw on Katharina's blog and I got some Cadbury eggs to put in it for us to enjoy together later :)! About to make another Valentine's bag I found over on Running with Scissors blog and it is such a beautiful bag. So try your hand at making one of these boxes or bags :)!

Okay, so I am really unsure about this "Thank you" Card that I made a few minutes ago...dunno what it is...it is either missing something or I just didn't do it right. Or perhaps I am just not happy with how it turned out...thinking I am going to have to play with this set a bit more.Lol, so I am hoping a fresh pair(S) of eyes will be helpful :)!

Here is a crafty bag my mother in law just finnished making for me for an xmas gift. She doesn't have a blog to enter into Nicole's giveaway, so I am kind of doing it for her :p (sort of also a way to say thank you for making this bag too). Here is the outside of the bag, and it has pockets of varying sizes all aroung the outside and in.

So here is my first attempt at playing around trying to draw something using Photoshop, now I did cheat a little bit. I went to www.deviantart.com and got a few brushes to help me out, like: wings, hair, hands. I tried to draw hands, hair and eyes and it just wasn't working for me...but anyways, here is what I created using Photoshop and my Bamboo fun tablet. Neat eh??

Hurry on over to this gals blog because she is giving away a MUST HAVE stamp set and she is going to be drawing on Thursday :)!
Yep, I turned 31 today :o *gasp* I know...shocker :p! I didn't mention it this morning, because things just didn't start out well...I woke up to "Honey, can you please come here and clean up your dd because she threw up in her bed (plus, everywhere else?" So I had to give the poor girl 4 baths (might have to give her another one later), just to get her totally cleaned up...and when he said it was everywhere it was. It was in her ears, in her nose, in her hair...poor thing...was so upset too, I think it scared her more than anything :(! All the schools were cancelled today all over the province, I decided I would keep my middle son home from school today too because of the snow storm. So when I decided that, it meant my bday stamping errands (tee hee, hubby unawareness program) were Kaboshed for today and we just stayed home keeping safe and warm. I would have to say that the start to being 31 wasn't good...but the good news is that we are all safe at home and I am going out Thursday night with some of my friends to celebrate. Sadly, Julie won't be able to join us because she and her girls are all fighting colds/flus :(!
The other night I lent out 2 of my stamp sets to Kim and Deborah, so Kim let me borrow 2 of her sets and this card was made from one of her 2 sets. Yes, I know I am CRAZY to even consider or let the thought cross my mind or even doing this...but I did. I cut out by hand this intricate flower vine stamped image, that is after I colored it all in first :p!! By this picture it looks like I only cut out part of it, but I didn't...I cut it ALL out :)!! LOVE this card, and how it turned out!! I did try it out on 2 other card bases that I made, but it just didn't look right to me and so I just had to break out my Label 1 Nestabilities for this project.
