Friday, Friday, Friday!!!

Can't believe a whole week has gone by so quickly. The weekend zooms by, then it's Monday, and then Thursday is trash day, and the weekend comes again. My older son has an interesting personality and he says things that really crack me up. The other day in the car, he says, "Amma (Mom), when can I be a boy?". I was a little puzzled with his question, but I answered, "But you are a boy!". To which he said, "Oh, that's right!! I didn't notice!". My little one will be two in June and is such a great kid. He smiles all day, and sings and babbles. They both bring me and my husband so much joy.

I've been on a whole stash of cards for the MOMS Club that I belong to. I was thrilled when they agreed to buy greetings cards from me, even if it was a really nominal price. I'm just glad I get to share my creations with others. I ended up making 24 birthday and 8 "new baby" cards. I did rely on past challenge sketches and colour combinations but I'm quite thrilled to say that they've all come out beautiful. 

Last night, I decided to take on the EBTKS Sketch Challenge #9. I absolutely love this sketch. It's simple and straightforward. I love all the different interpretations by the design team and other card makers. I kept it really really simple, relying on some cool DP and embellishments from the Hul-la-ba-loo collection (Making Memories). I used a sentiment sticker from my scrap booking stash.

I just figured out how to create a watermark on the pic with my blog address!! So much to learn!! 

My 11th year wedding anniversary is coming up this weekend. I'm so blessed to be married to the most wonderful man. He has been with me through all my challenging and joyous moments and I love him to death! (OK, that's enough with the mush!!). Can't figure out what kind of card to make him. I might end up writing him a letter instead. Haven't done that in a long time, and it will be something different. 

I've missed several challenges over the week, but I'm ready to get back into challenge mode again. Can't wait to create some more. Hope all of you had a great week, and enjoy your weekend. You know, when they say that every moment counts, they're not kidding. Time flies by so quickly, and all you have left are memories. So make some good ones:) Namaste!!
