Happy Friday everyone!
Another week down! Can hardly believe it! How time flies!! I am feeling a lot better. thank you to all of you who sent well wishes, I really appreciate it. I am just tired now. Jason is still sick, poor thing but has been going to work. I feel so bad for him because his birthday is tomorrow. He is turning the big 30!! And supportive wife that I am, I am so excited because now I get to tease him for the next three months about how he is married to a younger woman and I am his trophy wife!!! LOL!
Well Izzy is about 80% back to normal. She feels okay and is getting around like usual but is still congested. I feel bad for her, but it sounds like it is getting better! She actually played outside pretty much all day yesterday. It was so beautiful and today is supposed to be more of the same so I hope she can get outside some more. We have a few errands to run so we will see. Yesterday she walked all around the back yard and threw sweet gumballs on the pool tarp. It makes a thunking sound every time one hits. I am sure Jason is going to be so happy to clean them all off! LOL! Here is a picture of her playing outside yesterday.
In honor of Jason's B-day tomorrow I decided to show you a birthday themed card I made. And get this!! I did not, I repeat not, use a sketch! I know! Wow! When you see it though, you'll notice that it really doesn't need a sketch, but still, it is step in the right direction, right?
Do you not love that image! So, so sweet! My good friend Jess was generous enough to let me stamp this adorable image up and take it home with me to color! As soon as I got back from my trip I had to color it up and make a card with it! I started this card by coloring Lily and Milo - Congratulations by Stampavie with my copic markers. I then cut them out along with pieces of blue, red, green and yellow card stock using my nesties. I ran the blue card stock through my swiss dots folder and the green card stock through the swirls folder. I then stamped my sentiment from an old SU! set called All Around Argyle and mounted it on my yellow card stock. For the card itself, I layered on red and blue card stock along with some DP from Basic Grey. To make them look like balloons, I cut out little tabs for the bottoms of the balloons, glued on some black thread for the strings and then tied them together with a little red bow. I liked how this turned out, but for some reason Jason said he didn't want this card for his birthday. He mentioned something about how it was too kiddish for him and that he would prefer a more grown up card. Gosh I have no idea why he would think this was more of a kids card. LOL! Oh well, guess I have to go back to the drawing board for his card!
Izzy and I are off to run some errands this morning and then to catch up on some blogs. I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!! Smiles!
