A Sketch Challenge!

For all of you moms out there who have more than 2 children......my hat goes off to you! I know that I am running, baking, cooking, chasing like a mad woman everyday with the 2 kids I have. How do you do it when you have 3, 4, 5 etc, children? Live in your car? LOL! Seriously, these last couple of weeks are just keeping me on my toes! I try to slow done, take a deep breath and appreciate it. Before I know it, the house will be quiet and the messes will be gone.....

Anyway, I was finally able to squeeze in a challenge over at 2 Sketches 4 You! It is a wonderful place for inspiration, but it seems I never have time to participate. I chose this Lockhart stamp because I needed to build a stash of get well cards. You never know when you need them! I stamped the slippers on 2 separate pieces of DP, cut them out and layered them. I added a pearl as a finishing touch.


The paper I used was pink patterned SU!, Lasting Impressions (distressed white) and Making Memories. It had a bit of a vintage feel to it. I had a scrap of ribbon that had both pink and blue in it and matched perfectly! I tied a SU! button and floss to the ribbon. I also found a jar of cream colored Primas and used that for the upper right hand corner.


It is Friday again!!! Cort has cheerleading tomorrow (Don't worry I promised not to post anymore pics of her! : ) and a Superbowl party on Sunday. And at some point I probably need to fit some laundry, light dusting (Ok.......HEAVY dusting), and maybe clean a toilet or two.......
On that note......HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!!!

I don't even know how you do it with two kids. I have one and that's sometimes too many.

Love the vintage look to your card!!! So very pretty!!! I know I take care of my two grandsons while my daughter sleeps, she is a nurse and works the night shift, and wow after taking care of these two all day, I am one tired cookie!!! I have a crop tomorrow and a Super Bowl Party on Sunday and then back to taking care of the boys next week. Have a great weekend and have fun with cheerleading!!!! Post more pics, I never get tired of looking at them!!! Happy Friday!

I have 13 children with only 6 still at home now, but it makes for very busy days!

Love your get well card. So cute. Also love the pitcher you photographed it with.

LOVE your card (I always do!).

To answer your question about how do other moms with more kids do it- it's just the same as you. I think we all have equal crazy things to juggle and we all adapt to whatever situation is thrown at us! :)

Happy Friday!
