Life is Good!



Happpy Monday!!! I hope you had a fantastic weekend. I know I did. Saturday I spent the day making cards with Mary, Peggy, Pia and Donna. I would like to be able to tell you that I made a ton of cards, but that would be a lie. I made a total of 2 cards in 7 1/2 hours...Yep, I spent most of the day chit chatting, but you know what....We had a GREAT time. I love getting together with these crafty girls!

Then on Sunday, we spent the day with my parents on their boat. Ohh..what a great time we had. The weather was perfect. My kids just love going on "Papa's boat" to do some swimming, driving, and fishing. They really have taken a liking to fishing. Here are a few pics from the day.



As you can see, my kids had a great day.


My card for today, is one of the two I made on Saturday. Mary and Peggy have recently purchased some Lilli of the Valley stamps and when I saw them, I instantly fell in love. Holy smokes are these stamps cute. If you ever never heard of them before, you should check them out. They have just released their Christmas stamps and they are To Die For cute......... They also run a weekly challenge, in which I have decided to play along. This weeks challenge is a sketch (my favorite). These images allow for a lot of pretty embellishements (flowers), which I love to use.
Well, that is all for me today, I am off to finish my card for tomorrows Going Grey with Scrap-Creations. Thank you soooo much for stopping by. If you get a chance to stop by and play, we would love to have you join us.

My card is also good for the following Challenges:

For Fun - Favorite coloring technique -Copics of course...hehehe
Papertake - In the garden -This little girl is gardening
AI Factory - Flower Frenzy-Use a image as your main vocal point or embellishment.
Anything Goes - Sparkle and Shine- I used stickles oner jewlery, hat and shoes.
Stamp For The Weekend #43: 3 DP, 2 flowers, 1 ribbon, and extra gems or charm
