So my son E* wanted to have a Wall-e Bday party, so I wanted to create his Bday invitations and here is what I came up with :)! I found a coloring sheet online, then re-sized it so it would fit on the front of the card, and then I colored Wall-e in using Copic/Tombow markers. Sadly, you can't see the stars I stamped on all over the card behind Wall-e and am sitting here hoping my dh will finally get my light tent made. E* was so happy with the invites I made :D!
My middle guy turns 5 years old tomorrow, but we have a busy day so we thought he could open the gifts that he recieved in the mail this morning after breakfast. He opened up my my sister in laws, brother inlaw and family gift to him, and it was a wonderful Superman sun hat. He was so thrilled, going to have to find out if my sister in law made it or if she got it from a craft/farmers market :)! He LOVES the hat, am starting to wonder if he will take it off :p!

We goto the local library at least once a week, sadly our little library out by where we live has really weird hours of operation and it is hard to get there during those times they are open. It is especially hard when you have a child who doesn't understand library ettiquette, or has Sensory issues and you don't know what might set them off. Usually, I goto the library when my son is at Pre-school and I take my dd with to have some playtime there in their fun play areas :)! I haven't really had a good library experience when we have her brother with us, we have tried everything from social stories to getting library books about going to the library to giving him jobs to do to distract him from whatever might bother him. Nothing seems to help, until we got this ring ( a binder type ring) with pictures of each step of going to the library and there is only one picture on each "inchie".
My soon to be 5 year old wants me to make a Walle cake for him, I am going to goto Bulkbard I think and get a pan and just frost it. However, in my cake search I came across this cake site...you HAVE to check it out...WOW is all I have to say:

Well, I went in this morning to talk to my family doctor about me being so full of stress and anxieties...she thought this other doctor (flip flop) is being ridiculous. That I am fine, and that I know when to ask for help if I need it...she thought it was weird of this "Flip Flop" doctor to not get why I am stressed. Lol, this whole experience is odd with this "Flip Flop" doctor...lol!
My oldest son wanted me to take a picture of him and his lil sister, out on our back deck yesterday afternoon in the sun after he got home from school. Took 20 shots, and this is the BEST one that I took...sadly my dd wasn't so co-operative :p! She was hiding behind her bear there for most of the shots, or looking away...

I decided the other day that I would participate in the "Bellariffic Friday Sketch" challenge, and so here is the card that I created using this sketch. I used Maisy Ketto stamp for this card, I also used a dew drop for the centre of the flower she is holding and I used glass finish on her wings/shirt/crown/flower's leaves. I am very happy with how this card turned out, and thanks for this fun sketch too :D!
Need to apologize for the background I had the other day, didn't realize that it made it hard to read...so I got rid of that background. But would love your feedback on this new background that I found???
This cool blog giveaway sounds like a good one that you just might want to be part of, if you are tired of your blog's look and want something new...you can actually win a blog revamp on Thousand Birdies giveaway. Check it out :)!

I am starting to really think we may as well move into our local children's hospital, because I am now there 2-4 times a month and get frequent flyer miles too while I am there so frequently. Anyways, todays appointment was for my son to see a Plastic Surgeon for a birthmark that our ped's neurologist was concerned about and wanted to get a second opinion. To make a long story short, he has to have the birthmark removed probably when he is a teen but not right now...if it isn't removed apparently it can turn into some sort of skin cancer (don't know what kind).

I came across this neat post on a blog called HennHouse, and it really hit home to me...might even make you teary eyed as well so you may want to get a kleenex or a box full of kleenex. I wanted to share this post with you though:
The other night, we (my crafty friends and I) decided to have another mingle and so Val thought of a GREAT idea for our mingle: We have to create a card (with stamping on it) that represents our favorite movie in someway. Plus, apparently one get's bonus points if you use the stash that you have at home or something you have also NOT used before in your stash.

This afternoon I decided the kids should play outside since it was a beautiful warm sunny (buggy) day, so I thought it would also be a great time to take pictures of them while they were playing. I just HAD to share these pictures with you all, especially since there are some grandparents who come on here from afar wanting to see their grandkids.Here is
We were only able to get to one project last night at our crafty night, and that was the project Kim did with us! What a beautiful project, I was actually quite surprised at how easy it was to do and have been wanting to do one since Kim gave me one of these cards a year ago. So I was THRILLED to finally make one, and to see that it was actually quite easy :D! I am still not quite finished with this card yet, as I want to do something on the front of it but I wanted to show you what we created. Here is the back view of the card that we made:

Right now I am at the monthly "Crafty Night" at Deborah's place, sadly not all of us could go so we shall miss you all that couldn't come that are usually able to come. Here is the card that I created for the swap/challenge we have everytime we get together, this swap/challenge was to create a card using a stamped image of a woman. I was able to borrow some photo stamps from Kim, for this challenge and also to apply for the Stampsmith DT :) *thanks Kim*!

On Thursday our van decided to pop it's "I need an oil change" light on, so I made an appointment on Saturday morning to get one done this morning at 9 a.m. 2 of my 3 children will be going to my mother's house to have a playdate which they haven't had one of in awhile, usually my mother comes with us and helps out with the kids. This time I don't think the kids would have fun where I am going, plus it is a rainy day and that just doesn't go well with what I have to do. While I am waiting for my oil change, I am luckily in the Dartmouth Crossings (a business park) that has things like Michael's and Walmart in it...so I think I can keep myself busy :p!
