Hello, hello *waving wildly* just me , c, popping in to let you know that the silence on my blog this past week (and, my falling light years behind on commenting...my apologies!! I've been seeing sooooo many stunning creations and I pinkie-promise to catch-up) is the complete opposite to the hub-bub happening at my place.
Two of the best reasons EVER: Ms. T and Mr. C, my niece and nephew are here, and have been since Tuesday! I am in my glory!! My days begin with waking up, knowing that in a short time, little footsteps (or stomps, as the case may be), peals of "Aunty Ccccccc' and full-on, bowl me over hugs will greet me, in the evenings, I'm spoiled with bedtime hugs and kisses, paired with some fall asleep cuddles on the couch. Perfect bookends to start and end these past few days. And the in-betweens...incredible, fabulous, memory-making FUN! Bike rides, horse rides (Ms. T, only as Mr. C isn't big enough yet), a playground excursion, a trip to Banff, a candy store stock up, watching Frozen and Cars, reading 'Lightning McQueen and Thomas the Train stories, stamping, giggling..and that was just Day 1!! Truly, we've set the 'control button' to GO GO GO...and we're on full throttle!!
Anyway, I have them for one more day...and I'd best get going with the program, as I can hear little voices calling my name (love that!!)
Today's card (or rather, the card I made in bits and pieces over the course of several early mornings, before the fun-and-frolick gigglers woke up) is inspired by the theme and palette at Uniko Studio Challenge 11: Birthday
As it's a birthday card, I'm sharing it at Seize the Birthday
and since several die cuts were used, it's also going to Virginia's View Challenge #5: Die Cuts
The photo doesn't capture the shimmer of the Wink of Stella on the bloom, or the double layers of vellum on the butterfly very well...but they're there in real life!
Before I go (super fast typing quickly....kids are running...), THANK YOU so much for your wonderful support and encouragement with my first DT card over at Addicted to Stamps and More, as well as those at Inkspirational Challenges. I would not, could not have taken these steps without all of YOU to inspire me. You make my heart smile!!
Comment catch-up on the agenda!!
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
