~Ella Claire~

It was so great to get to go see my sister and her new baby. Baby and mom are doing well-big brother is adjusting. My sister loves the card that I made for Ella and plans on framing it for her room.

Stay tuned tomorrow for another gift I made her.

I hope all has had a fun weekend!

Color Challenge Time Again!!

Good Morning! I'm up early this morning! This is my last day of official work for the school year. Boxes are packed, records are completed and filed, and the keys will be turned in. It is sure to be an exciting day! My twin sister is being induced this morning. Please pray for her and the baby. Pray specifically for an easy labor and an uncomplicated delivery.

I had time last evening to complete the color challenge over at Lauren's blog. Here was what we were given....

Here is what I came up with............................

Home is where your story begins......

I made it through the weekend and have jumped feet first into the week! If you have been around kids during the last week of school, you know how excited they are! Our prekinders are handling the end of school pretty well! I'm just thinking 3 more days:)
Below is a card I made for good friends of ours that moved to a new home. I love this saying and the stamp is to die for! (Unity Stamping Co.)
Until next time!

Praying for Ewe

Here is another prayer post-it note book. These are so easy and so versitale. Change the sentiment for any occasion.
I do have a couple prayer requests:
Pray for my sister who is 35 weeks pregnant. She is beginning to have slightly elevated amniotic fluid levels. She goes for some tests this next week and will possibly be induced soon.
Pray for a smooth and successful close to the school year. We have 5 more days with our students.
I have to say I am so glad to have this busy week behind me. I am completely exhausted. My body is screaming 'REST'. I hope to get some quiet and family time this weekend.
Enjoy your weekend and I'll post again Sunday evening.

Bridal Shower Card

I needed a card for a bridal shower. The brides colors are black and red. I saw this sketch on Splitcoast and decided to try it. It still is a busy week. I don't have much time.

Teacher Thank You

Wow~ What a busy day today. It was our Pre-K Fun Day and we played outside all day! The children were wiped out! I am sure they will sleep well tonight and then ready to get back to school in the morning! It was very warm and muggy! At least it wasn't rainy!

I am showcasing the card that matches the pink and green card folio I made for our son's oldest teacher for her end of the year gift. Enjoy!

Hey There Sunshine

I hope all is well! Our youngest went back to school today. He did have strep throat! We are on a 10 day antibiotic. If you know me, you know that I love red and black. When I saw this green patterened paper with the little bees on it, I knew I had to make a card with it..... I had a neat sunshine stamp, so it went perfectly with the paper! Enjoy!

Fun Friday

I can't believe the week is over. We are very busy at school with only 15 instructional days left! Whew.... Just finished taking my exam for my class and I feel so relieved! I have a few weeks off, then I am taking 2 classes for the summer session. It will be a busy weekend here, so I may not get to post until Sunday evening.

Until then, enjoy this little creation. Who doesn't need birthday cards....
