So Sweet

Good morning to you and happy Friday!  I have a lil' baby card that was cut using my Cricut and the Campin' Critters Cartridge.  This cartridge has so many fun card shapes!  The lambs were cut using the Country Life Cartridge.  They were glittered and teeny tiny buttons were added too.  

I added a sentiment using an SRM sticker.  

My youngest is going on an overnight ski trip with his school.  He is so excited!  But for me, I always worry when they go so far away to ski.  I reminded him many times to ski defensively and always watch out for the other guy. He is a pretty sensible kid, so hopefully, he won't take any unnecessary risks!  
This weekend will kick off Kyle's month long birthday celebration!  He is turning the "BIG" 16!  Hard to believe my baby could possibly be that old!
Have a wonderful weekend my friends!

Good morning to you! 
I have another Crafty Secrets card to show you today.  This image is from the Farm Chicks Stamp set. I've so enjoyed pulling out the Copics and just coloring.  It's been too long since I've done that! All of the papers used on this card were printed from Crafty Secret's Vintage/Retro CD. I love printing my own to any size I want!  I included lots of layers here, added a banner, and a large flower to finish it off. 
 I added a bit of sparkle to the sun with Tim Holtz's new distress glitter.  It is a finer glitter, with lots of sparkle, and apparently can be dyed any color you want to coordinate with your project.
I am still not feeling well, and getting impatient with the whole "being sick thing." Fortunately, I haven't run a fever and my stomach is okay.  It's all in my head and I have terrible sinus headaches.  
So I'm getting through the days at work, but by the end of the day, I am pooped!
Hopefully, you are all managing to stay healthy!
Have a great day!

A few weeks ago, I went scrappin' with my girlfriends.  And I have to admit, I don't usually get much done.  I tend to be much more efficient when I scrapbook from home. But I love going anyway, for the conversation and laughs.  I did manage to color some images in the midst of my blabbing!  This was one of the images I colored.  It is the Love You Mother set by Crafty Secrets.  It was colored with Copics.  
I cut out the image using the Decorative Labels Eight dies from Spellbinders.  While the die was still on, I sponged it a bit with pink Memento ink.  It gives the card a bit of warmth. I popped each layer up to give it dimension. 
I tied my satin bow, added a glittery punched flower and pearls in coordinating colors. 
I gave the eggs a bit of sparkle with glossy accents and glitter.  
I have been fighting a cold all weekend long.  I'd like to say I woke up feeling like a million bucks....but instead feel like a dollar bill.  : (  I am going to try and muddle through the day, and hope the kids are cooperative.  
Fingers crossed. 
Have a great day my friends!
