Happy Twinkling CInco De Mayo!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

I know it has been a long time since I have posted, but for some reason I have no mojo for blogging! I have been super busy creating projects and have them stacked up ready to share but, I just haven't felt like typing. I think it is the weather. Spring has finally sprung and I guess I just have cabin fever! What I feel horrible about though, is that I have neglected all of you! I truly enjoy seeing everyone's creations and will be back out again I promise to enjoy!

Well yesterday was Izzy's second day at gymnastics. There was one extra kid there yesterday and it didn't seem to phase her. She headed right for the trampoline to "jump", i.e., march in place and then did the little balance beam again. She even crawled under the big cushioney circle! I am so proud of her! She really had a great time! Oh and real quick, her new favorite line is, "I came back!" She now says it any time she walks into the room! What a little drama queen!

Since today is Cinco De Mayo and Twinkling Tuesday, I decided to combine the two! Madelynn is back and has a great sketch for us this week. Although I did flip it and switch the sentiment, I still think she will like it! I hope so!!!!



Don't you just love this paper! I just picked it up from K and Company. It is so fruity and fun for summer I couldn't resist! I started the card off by first stamping Hola Chica by Paper Pretties on white card stock and then colored her in using my copics. Next I cut her out with my labels four nesties along with some yellow and orange card stock. Following the sketch, I layered on orange and yellow card stock along with some DP from K and Company. I tied a red and green stitched ribbon across the middle, stopping short of the edge and added three buttons to the top. (Doesn't the red one kind of look like a sombrero? Okay maybe if you are standing 20 feet away and squint real hard!) I finished the card off by printing off my sentiment on the computer and cutting it out with my nesties. I hope Madelynn likes it!!!

Now onto the rest of the DT! I know that they will have some great things in store for you today, especially our featured DT member this week Christi! Remember all you need to do is type in the keyword MTTSC21 when uploading to SCS or PCP and be sure to leave a comment on the Twinkling Blog so we know you have played!
Thanks everyone for hanging out with me today!!! Lots of smiles!

Wow Janna! This is beautiful!! Love the colors and your coloring! That dp is so cheery and gorgeous! The buttons are the perfect touch!!

I am so glad you are o.k. and no one is sick. I have missed you but I think all of us can relate to the feeling of being in a rut or just feeling blah.
