Using up old supplies...pics of kids in their first swim of the season...AND Jayne needs to claim her blog candy!





Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend! I too was busy planting and opening our pool! Today was only about 76 degrees, but it didn't stop my kids from swimming! (For 5 hours!) Blue lips and chattering teeth...didn't detour them!




This card started with an OLD piercing template I had from years ago. I realized it fit perfectly into the SU! square tag. So I pierced and embossed... then added beads to the frame, glitter and crystal glaze to the center. Then I had a heck of a time finding just the right paper.. so this sat there for awhile. Then I remembered I had this metal sticky paper.....PERFECT! I cuttlebugged it (boy, we sure do invent new words don't we?) and voila! I used cool carribean paper, some white, silver and blue ribbon and it was a DONE DEAL! I kinda like how it turned out!




Check back soon for some "mini" blog candy for 3 lucky winners!

Love, LOVE, LOVE the card!! I love silver, and the cool carribean goes so well with that! Great job! Your kids are adorable, too!

Great card. Very pretty. I am so jealous your kids are in the pool already. I'm in saskatchewan, Canada and it's still way to cold for swimming.

It's really really cool! Is the metal paper older too? Company?
Love the piercing too.
Yes, and it's way way too cold in Manitoba for swimming. Maybe in July (fume fume).

I know I already commented here, but I just saw the picture of your dogs. That pug is so sweet. And the pom (it is a pom, right?) too! What a wonderful family!
