Triple Whimsy

Yesterday did not turn out like I planned!LOL! The kids were CRAZY yesterday! They went to bed VERY early last night!!! I made this card yesterday for the color and sketch challenge and todays challenge was Flowers so it fit in with todays challenge too!

I really like the color challenge! I used teal for the card base and real red and celery for the layers. The dp is from the POP in celery. For the main image I stamped the sentiment in celery. I stamped the butterfly twice once on the main image and once to cut out to 3-d the butterfly. I added red jewels to random dots on the butterfly wings. When I finished the card I thought it needed something so I added the ribbon and the ladybugs stamped in the lower right edge. I really liked how the black seemed to add to the colors so I added the black brads in the corners. Ignore Alana's finger smudge on the main image!LOL! She was coloring some images I stamped for her while I was making my card and of course after I was completly through with the card she grabs it and had ink on her finger. I didnt ask how she got ink on her finger. I didnt want to know!!!!!

Since yesterdays post was pretty short and sweet I thought I would fill you in on our holiday. My husband's Dad was here this Christmas and it was the first Christmas he has been with his dad since he was 3 years old. The kids got a ton of toys that they dont need!LOL! I got a new stove!! YYAAAAYYY!!!! I also got some super cute high hopes stamps that you will be seeing very soon!

I know its after the fact but I was so sick during the holidays I didnt get a chance to post anything so I want to know how your holiday was. You know me I want FUNNY!!! Tell me the funniest thing that happened this Christmas or in my case the most annoying toy your kids got!LOL! Alana got this High School Musical barbie that sings! UGGGGGHHHH!HH!! Im ready to toss the thing in the trash! I can usually handle noisy toys as long as they have a volume well this doll doesnt and its very loud! Its about to drive me up the wall! I promise when they go back to school next week Gabriella will go missing for awhile!LOL! We already knew Alana was gaga over high school musical but Madison and Brayden love it too now. I can quote both movies (from Santa! How dumb was he!??!!) by now!LOL! Have a great day!
