Happy Thursday! How are you today?
I was so pleased with the great participation for last weeks challenge!! The cards are fantabulous! My internet down here has been painfully slow...so I hav enot commented on all the cards....but I did view most. BLING-A-LICIOUS!
I hope that we will have just as good participation for this week's
Tooty F ruity theme! mmmm...mmmmm...mmmmmm! Nothing like fresh juicy fruit in the summer! (ok, ok! I know that some of you are actually in the winter hemisphere right now...sorry). :(
But we are kickin' it back in the summertime! oooh...was that rubbing it in??? heeheehee! JK!
I'll bet that many of you have more fruit stamps than you think. Apples? Cherries? Pineapples? Lemons? I know you have something. As of this moment there are 36 comments on last weeks challenge....most of those are links to TERRIFIC challenge cards....lets see if we can get at least 30 links this week too!!
Since I premade this card I do not remember who made the paper. If you must know let me know and I will check it out when I get home. After all, the thing I am usually looking for in people's recipes is who made the paper so that I can my hands on some too! You know I colored with the Copics pictured. I added glitter around the edge of the layer with the Strawberry on it and added stickles where the strawberry seeds are. I used the Strawberry Stamp and Strawberry Tilda...which can be preordered separately or as part of Diana's Discounted Bundle at Magnolia-licious.
On the vacation front things are going well. We went to a water park on Tuesday. (thats why I too tired to post a card for Wed.) Lost Declan for about 10 minutes! Found him swimming in the deep end of another pool....Good thing he can swim! OMG....I can't even tell you the sheer terror I felt. After he was back I started balling. I need a tether from me to him. He takes any opportunity he can. Other than that the kids had fun. Declan LOVES the water. And since I don't get many pictures of the moments that Declan is smiling or enjoying himself..(with his hatred of the camera and all). Here's a pic of Declan after he scared the daylights out of us by taking off on his own adventure!:
Yesterday we had a another down day. (too pooped after a day at the waterpark) We went to the Cape Cod Potato Chip Factory tour. Glad it's only about 7 minutes from house because the "tour" was walking down a short hallway and looking in about 5 windows and not being able to see much. :P It took us longer to get the kids out of the car than it did to view the tour! LOL! Then we drove around exploring for awhile....Had to make a stop at BJ's and since it was time for me to update my cell phone I conned Pat into agreeing on getting me a Blackberry. :) How happy am I that I will never be far from the internet! LOL! Then we went to dinner and after a little exploring an ice cream, of course.
Thanks for humoring me by letting me share my pics and stories!
I loved all your comments about the trials and tribulations of getting pics of your clan over the years!
Have a Magnificent Thursday!!
