Summer is almost here and what a better way to celebrate that than with a cute card? OK, so i am just being silly. I really made this card because I got this Hula Mouse digi image (at two scoops rice designs) also found on Mels blog yesterday and was dying to make a card with it!!! Isn't she ADORABLE?!?! ((see below post for more deets on Mels blog and goodies!)) I followed the sketch on the 2 Sketches 4 You blog. i always feel so intimidated by the amazingly outstanding talent there and never make a card ((although I set out to every time)). I was alone last night thanks to Bike Week here in N. Myrtle Beach and my hubby had to work extra late, so I bit the dust and decided to give it a try. I really liked the sketch (what else is new:). I did have to make my card a 5.5 x 5.5 to fit everything, I hope that is still ok. AND when I visited their blog I found the most fun news EVER! :) you have to GO see it and PATIENTLY wait for the FUN!
Here are the Deets:
What: 1st Annual 2 Sketches 4 You Ultimate Card Showdown!
When: June 1st 2009
Where: 2 Sketches 4 You
What: A Card Showdown that will run for a period of 5 Weeks
Also, i have to share this with you. My sweet daughter is always a late sleeper ... she is so hard to get up and I feel guilty waking her (yea, mom is gullible.. but learning:) ). She usually rolls out of bed anywhere between 8 and 9am. When she realizes that the next day is Saturday, now that's another story:)! All day yesterday she continued to say "when we are done with school can I..." and I would answer "tomorrow is Saturday sweetie". It was almost as if she did not believe me and wanted constant reassurance. Well, as I sat on the couch this morning at 6:20 am I heard a door creak, turned and there she was, as happy as a little lark. So this is my little girl having coffee with mom at 6:30 this morning. The real trick is on her though because she will go to bed early tonight "MWAHAHAHA!!!" (evil mom laughter) She has her blanket all warm and cozy, a cup o joe, her baby and her tissue because mornings are sneezy as you can see in the first pic, a yawn, stretch and sneeze all in one :) hehehe! Have a great weekend my friends:)!
