Some Weekend Cards


Happy Weekend!

What a great week. We had some gorgeous days and today turned out to be one, too. We got hammered with rain the past few days so Owen's baseball game got cancelled anyway because there was so much water but at least we got to hang outside for a bit.

Owen and Henry got bug catchers for Easter and, well, let's just say that we are going to have a fun filled summer of creapy crawlies :)





I have a few Imaginisce cards to share with you. First up is a card for their Paper Piecing challenge this month. I LOVE to paper piece and I got this pattern from Scrapbooks, etc. They have awesome patterns.

Oh and check out these cute stamps from Gel-a-tins! How fun are these little guys...I thought they would be great for gettin' all up in my watermelon ;) AND, I have this obsession with the word "yum". It might be one of my favorite words in the English language, LOL!


I used some Chocolate Box Core'dinations for the seeds. So perfect with that pink coming through! And I used my scalloped Spellbinder's Die for the "bite". YUM!!!




This Live Loud Line was one of my FAVORITES! I love the colors...gray..orange...green and of course everyone loves a good boy line ;)

These are super cute! And I love the serious expression of your little guy searching for creepy crawlers--so long as they stay outside, right?! Hope you guys had a great weekend :)
