CELEBRATE SPECIAL 14...
I hope that you all had a great weekend. We had the best weather here this weekend. Both Saturday and Sunday ended up getting into the 90's. We all went on our walks early so that it was still cool and refreshing. Yesterday by the time we got home and cooled down Madison and I decided that a swim was just what the doctor ordered. It was so fun just the two of us playing around and swimming then of course a little of the sunbathing on the rafts. My favorite part. I could have fallen asleep if Maddie hadn't been in the pool with me. lol...
I wanted to thank everyone for leaving my M&Ms Birthday wishes yesterday. They both had me show them the comments. It really means a lot to them as well as Jerry and I. You are all so sweet.
I had promised to share the cards that I made for the kids this week after they received them. So, I thought that as Mitchell is my oldest (14 years old) I would start with his card. I decided to use Ian from Sweet & Toxic as even though Mitchell has never had that long of hair he does love this stamp. I also left the tie with the cross on it as Mitchell is very much into God and church. He is my sweetie to the core. Anyway, as Mitchell is into anything that has to do with Super Heroes and that kind of thing I decided to use Amy Young's great idea to make the hair Super Hero Blue. I wasn't able to make it look as cool as Amy's, but Mitchell absolutely loved his card. :O) I also figured that I could keep on practicing it as she has a great video on it, so be sure to check it out. I was going to show you how the inside turned out, but it has a private message to him so I couldn't do that this time. I suppose I need to remember to take the pictures before I give out the cards. lol....
Ok guys we still have to get our walk in before I hit the shower and head to work. I hope that you all have a great day and I will talk at you tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs, Lisa G
