Swap Cards

These were the cards I made for the Canadians,INK! group swap. I joined two groups so I made two different ones.

I used Baroque Motifs set for this one. I stamped the swirl first then the flower and cut it out. Put a brad in the middle and mounted on with dimensional. Very simple card.

This one was a lot of work. I cased this from someone on SCS. I tweak it to make my own. The flowers were a lot of cutting. I had this duh moment when I did the flowers. I could have stamped the flowers on Real Red and Tempting Turquois cardstock in black ink instead of on Whisper White cs then colour it in. But the kids enjoyed colouring them for me. They loved helping me with my swaps.

Happy Stamping!

VBS Day 5

These are the sign in crew who keeps the points for the kids. The kids gets points for attending, bring a Bible, memory verse and bring a friend.

Closing rally at the church. Every year they give out a big prize for a kid who have the most points. Jarod won this year and he won a scooter. Had a little preaching and we all went downstairs for pizzas.

Go Karting

We went Go Karting after VBS for a break eventhough we had a lot to prepare for the last craft for Friday. It was fun but my kart was so slow that everyone kept passing us.

My Baby is 8 Months Old **updated July 22**

Hope is 8 months and growing fast. She's crawling and so independent. She wants to walk already. She has this big smile on her face everytime I hold her up to walk. It is so cute cause she is such a tiny little girl.

Email Me

I put an email me button on the side bar. Please, let me know if it works. I have been trying to add this for awhile now but I think I finally figure it out. Hope it works.
