Little One.......

Good morning!!! I am in a happy mood today!I have the best family.....they surprised me with a birthday dinner last night and a fabulous gift! (I am turning 40 in September, so needless to say I had no idea they would be doing anything so early!) My dad, hubby, and in-laws pitched in to send me on a girl's weekend with my sister next week. We get to shop, stay in a hotel, go for a fancy dinner, and see Million Dollar Quartet. I am soooooo excited to spend the weekend with my sis!!! : )
Today I have a baby card to share with you. It uses an unusual cartridge to create this card. I used Campin' Critters to cut the moon at 3." The card shape was cut also using this cartridge. The tag was cut from the Sentimental's Cartridge at 1". The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I added a bit of tulle to soften the look of the card.
I hand drew his eyelashes and used a bit of chalk on his eyes and cheeks. And of course I had to use lots of glitter! ; )
And just a few of my favorite pics of the summer........my two guys having a water gun fight. These photos make me smile!
Don't ya love it?
My new high school student giving his ole' mom a hug! I adore this kid!!!
Thank you for letting me share! I always appreciate your visits!!!!
Be sure to come back tomorrow for Crafty Secret's Blog Hop!

A cute card that used your imagination successfully! But I LOVED the pics of your family. Also those of Court's BD party earlier. I know life isn't always easy for you and it isn't for me either. It's a lot in our attitude. God has blessed you in numerous ways that otherwise He could not have if you didn't have the family you do. You truly are a GOOD Mom. Love to you...
