Father's Day Card.

Today is Saturday and it was a day of cleaning the house. Hey I even got DH in on the cleaning, lol. We had bible study at our house tonight and since my Dh had all of that time off awhile back and the kids are out of school, the house was turning into a real mess. I guess it has been worse, the kids just have to many toys and no where to put them. My Dh has this weekend off and always has Mondays off and then took Tuesday and Wednesday off. Tuesday is his Company's picnic and he took Wednesday off in case it rains on Tuesday. Well today he tells me he also has Thursday and Friday off and then goes back on the weekend. I say oh, you mean I'm stuck with you for a week, lol, I was kidding him...Well at least the house is clean today because we probably will be in and out all week.
Here is the card I made all the Fathers.
Stamps: Hanna Stamps- Riley Hammock, SU- All-Around Argyle
Ink: Versafine Black Onyx
Paper: LSS- brown, green, blue; GP white
Extras: Cuttlebug and Spots and Dots folder, Rectangle Nestabilities, embossing powder, brown ribbon, and Zig watercolor system markers
Well that's all for today, we have a church picnic tomorrow, see you soon...

Hello Summer!

I've been MIA lately. Yes vacation is over but the kids are out of school so I have alot less time to spend in the internet world. I will have some pictures and cards to share coming up. I'm just letting you know I'm still here and to keep coming back, thanks...

Second Posting today...

We started out the kids first day off by visiting the local pool. My daughter is like a fish in the water, takes after her dad. My son is a little more conservative like me. Here you can see my DH jumping from the highest diving board and a picture with DH and my son and daughter. We were there for four hours, it was kinda cool, 70 degrees, partly cloudy. We then went out to eat at a nice Chinese Restaurant. When we got home, me and DH were feeling kind of burnt. The kids just got a nice tan. Were were so burnt that we had a hard time laying in bed. We had to stay home the next day because we were so sore. The next day we went to The Mall Of America in MN. We first went to McDonalds for Breakfast. I took about 1 1/2 hours to get to the Mall. We spent alot of time walking. I visited my two favorite stores, The Disney Store and Archivers.
The kids favorite store is Lego Land. I bought a Score-Pal at Archivers and a few stamps, while I let my daughter pick a few stamps out too. For lunch the kids picked McDonalds, while we picked a Chinese Place. Next time maybe in July, we might go back and stay overnight across the street and buy tickets to the Nick Universe. They are in the process of remodeling right now. Later that night we decided to take the kids to our hometown McDonalds for Supper. They had a hamburger and apple dippers so that isn't all that bad. The happy meal toy was from the Kung Fu Panda Movie, which we went to the week before on opening day and the first showing. I also got a happy meal so they could get extra toys since they loved the movie. The fun was almost over on Friday because we had company over so we had to clean house, but me and my friend went to a Friday The 13 th Stamp Party at a LSS. It was fun day too. Saturday my DH had to go back to work. Make sure you come back soon because I have a Riley Father's Day card to show you. See you then...

I'm still on vacation, but here is a card for my DH's cousin that graduates tonight from High School. I'm sending it in the mail tomorrow since we can't attend her party this weekend. Her school colors are black and orange so I thought this would be a good one for her. We were to go to The Mall Of America today, but we went to The Eau Claire Fairfax Pool yesterday and got so burnt that we can't go today.

Confirmation Card.

A big congrats goes out to my godson Derek, he just got confirmed in Church today with 6 other confirmation students. I made this card for him last night. He seemed to like it alot. All of my family was amazed at the quality of my card. Many asked how I got the paper like I did, they don't have any cardmaking knowledge. I used an old SU set called Stained GlassII that I bought off of Ebay. The sentiment is computer generated with the Bible verse(Psalm 27:1) that was chosen by his Confirmation Teachers and the Pastor.

Stamps: Stampin Up Stained GlassII
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Paper: LSS unknown blue, black; GP white
Extras: Zig watercolor system markers, Art Institute Gingerbread Glitter, Cuttlebug and Textile folder, dimensionals, SU 2 way glue, and computer generated bible sentiment.
