Gone missing

Sorry that I have been so neglectful of my poor blog this month. I have been busy planning the girls' birthday parties, trying to get my scraproom organized (a lot harder than I thought it was going to be) and still spending time with the girls.

Today we are waiting for the carpet guy to come and fix my carpet (it is pulling up in places), cleaning my kitchen, doing a little math review and then going to go see the move UP with some friends. The girls are really looking forward to it. I have heard great things.

This last weekend was wonderful. One of the guys who works for DH had a pool party, so we spent Saturday over there. Their pool is gorgeous and their property overlooks a pond. It was completely relaxing and we all had a wonderful time. After we got home on Saturday night we spent the night hanging out with the neighbors. We were just chatting while the girls played when we saw some test fireworks go off. Sure enough when the sun went down we were able to see fireworks from our driveway. We pulled out the lawn chairs and watched them from our yard. The view was perfect. It truly was a wonderful surprise.

Thought I would share a project or two with you before I go. I created this first card for the Card-A-Licious Challenge blog. Our challenge was to create a baby card using ribbon and stitching. I am a sucker for all the fabulous Melissa Frances designer stickers and tickets. I used some of them here along with a fabulous felt bird from Jenni Bowlin.

The second card was for Emma's Paperie. Cindy asked us to make a summer card. I just love these tags from My Mind's Eye. OK, who am I kidding, I love just about everything from My Mind's Eye LOL. I paired the tag with some bright colors and jute string to create this summery card.

Have a wonderful week and thank you for stopping by!
