15 years ago

Well, 15 years ago I had a beautiful 6 lb 10 oz baby boy that we named Jon. What a cutie he was! WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED?! I hope you all know me well enough to know that I'm totally just kidding. I really love having teenagers. I enjoy his enthusiasm, his willingness to try new things, his love for God, his sweet personality, his sense of humor, and of course...I believe he is the cutest thing! His latest love is Golf so I wonder what he'll be getting? So...this is a shout out for Jon...HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Last night, after finishing my swaps, I made a card with Doodle This from the Spring Mini. If you are in my stamp circle and haven't received your copy yet...please let me know! Anyway, I combined Doodle This with Rebecca designer paper and this is what I came up with. You'll see that they layout is very similar to yesterday's card as it is what I tend to do with larger images. I also used the Linen BG stamp and then stamped the flower over that for the background. I used the Level 1 hostess set, Riveting, for the Thanks So Much sentiment. I thought it would provide good contrast with the large square. I cut the ribbon a bit shorter after I took the picture though and it looks much better. The cardstock colors are just Regal Rose, Whisper White, and Sahara Sand. Rose colored gingham rounds out the card. The picture really doesn't do this card just...it is very nice in real life.

Today, I'm off to Costco. Costco trips at my house are a big deal as we only go about every 6 weeks and spend a bundle while we are there. This week shouldn't be so bad though because I don't have as much as normal to get.

I hope you all have a terrific Tuesday!
