Relaxed and refreshed

Last week was a busy one but it was so worth it! We had such a wonderful weekend. K's meet, although quite steamy, was great. We got to hang out all weekend with friends that we haven't seen since we moved and watch my sweet girl swim. I am so incredibly proud of her! She swam a 200 meter freestlye this weekend (that is A LOT of swimming) and she did fabulous. She also took 16 seconds off of her 100 freestyle time and 4 seconds off of 50 breast. Can you believe that? Best of all, she worked hard and had a great time.

I have a couple of cards I would like to show you. I created these two cards for Magistical Memories this last week. The first is for the daisy challenge. The challenge was to use the colors yellow, white and black on a project. We were asked to include at least one piece of chipboard and at least one flower. Here is my project.



I used one of the pages from the Scalloped Lace book as the base for my card and a chipboard flower from MM as well. You have until the end of the month to get involved in this challenge. You can win an awesome chipboard package so head over there!
The other card I created is a birthday card used one of the new pieces of chipboard from Magistical Memories. I painted the Filigree Fantasy piece black and used it as an accent on this famine birthday card. Lots of lace edge punching and rhinestones on here. :)
Well, the kids are at camp for about another hour and a half, I better get some cleaning done. Have a wonderful day!
