Happy Day!

Good Sunday Morning everyone! It is awful cloudy out there today and it rained some yesterday but my flowers sure did love it. Speaking of flowers I made this card a couple of days ago and just love the bright springy colors. I think it would be so cute as a birthday or anniversary card. The three stamps on this card are from Cornish Heritage Farms and are the Stamp of the Month Trio. The layout is pretty much from the sample that came with it but I changed it a little to make it a Lorie card. I really like the scalloped edge of the Elegant Eggplant and how Summer Sun and Elegant Eggplant go so well together. I just need to figure out how to make it so one side isn't a sharp edge like this one on the left. Stamps: Cornish Heritage Farms SOTM trio for April. Card Stock: Summer Sun, Whisper White, and Elegant Eggplant. Ink: Summer Sun, Always Artichoke, and Elegant Eggplant. Accessories: Organdy Ribbon, Heat Gun, and Corner Rounder (for scalloped edge).

Living in a college town sure has some of its benefits. The college is putting on a performance of Pecos Bill this weekend and the review in the paper said that it is kid friendly so on a whim we decided to take Kyler to it...you know...give him some culture. HA! Anyway, it was so fun! It was a four actor play and the sound effects were done right on stage. In total it was about 55 minutes long or so. The fun part was that we got to go behind the scenes and see how they did it and meet the cast. Kyler was so cute! After meeting Pecos Bill he said..."I got to meet Pecos Bill...that is soooo cool!" He also enjoyed the cookie and punch he got! Gotta love kids don't ya?!

I have the pleasure of teaching Children's Church today so I need to go review that. I hope you all have a fantastic day!
