The winner of my blog candy is:
So last night was our monthly crafty night out, but instead we all had an *ENABLER ALERT* from Julie's mom from down in the valley that her cousin had a HUGE sale going on at her crafty store and thought we'd all be interested. Well, we all could NOT pass up on such an opportunity so all 7 of us hopped into my van and drove down to the crafty store in the valley :)! We all came out with an arm full of goodies, none of us left empty handed, and were giddy with glee about the deals we got or about the amount of gorgeous card stock we left with. After that we went to Tim Horton's to have a snack before we headed back home with all our goodies, and on the way home I nearly had to pull over to the side of the road a few times due to the amount of laughing we did. I had tears streaming down my face at least two times!! Who knew how dangerous it could be to have 7 crafty gals in a van at once??? Lol!
My friend Kim just found out she is going to be a Grandmother, so I just HAD to make her a card :)! Here is what I came up with using the cute " Penny Black" teddy bear rubber stamp, I love to use this stamp for Baby cards. I didn't use a Nestability die for the cards base, it is actually card stock that came this shape and I attached two pieces of it using eyelets. You can't really tell here either, but I stamped the bear image out twice so that I could make the bear pop off the page :)!
This past weekend while we were in New Brunswick visiting relatives (my sister in law, her hubby, and their son), I went to a Michael's free "make and take" with my sister in law. I hadn't ever been to one before, just because none of them were ever something I wanted to do until this one this past weekend :)! We made this dragon bracelet, first which didn't take all that long to make and I was surprised there weren't a lot of people there either wanting to make jewelry.

I have been looking after 2 children after school now for the past 2 years now, and have taken on 2 more children in the afternoons after school. Yes, that is plus my 3 and no I am not crazy. They all get along, all goto the same school and are all good friends so it makes it easier :)!
