Hi Friends! Long time, no write! Its been busy here the last couple of weeks! I have a few pictures and stories for you but first I wanted to check in with my take on the Waltzingmouse sketch challenge! You can find all the details for the challenge here.
My 17th wedding anniversary is tomorrow and I needed a little something for the hubby. I used a couple of different sets on this card. The background is from Heirloom Patterns. The tree and wee birds are from Teeny Trees. The heart is from Lil Buddies (I think...), and the sentiments are from Compact Family and Compact Sentiments. I used a variety of inks from a wide variety of manufactures. Ribbon from my stash, twine from May Arts. That's it for the card making portion. Below is a little update on the goings on around here:
Edit: Just clarify... the bride below is NOT me. That is my husband's cousin and we went to her wedding in S. Ca. You can see us dressed in our wedding finery in the pics following.
We have been in and out of town and all over for the past two weeks. We were at a wedding in Southern California where my husbands cousin got married.
The bride and her dad.
My little darlings.
Me and the hubby.
Both my kids had birthdays and we celebrated with a pool party at the local pool.
I cleaned out and reorganized my closet! Oh it was such a pig stye! I am too embarrassed to show the before pics!
I recovered all the dining room chairs. The kids ripped one and of course no matching fabric on hand I had to redo them all. I do like the way they turned out.
After! So anyway its been busy around here! My daughter started jr. high this week and my son will be back in school on Monday. The count down for me has started as well and I have been spending time down at my job getting ready for the new year to start up. Thanks as always for coming by. I know its annoying when the posts don't update every day! I'm going to try to do better!
