happy mother's day

I would like you all to meet Stretch. He is my very first High Hopes stamp and I got him when I won the blog candy over at Inky Paws a while back. This is the card that I'm using for my kids swap card. The frog just wasn't doing it for me so yesterday I just decided to try another card and came up with this one. I'm a little disappointed in my picture because it just doesn't show all the work I did with my COPIC marker on this guy. There are about three layers of color and then I removed some of the color with my colorless blender pen. In real life it looks really nice! The list of supplies I used is HERE.

And, today is Mother's Day! The day when everyone says nice sweet things about mom but you know what? Sometimes being a mom is just down right hard. No has to be said...sometimes lots before the kids hear you, throw up needs to be cleaned up...most often in the middle of the night, curfews have to worried about until they get home, and all the while we are wondering what the heck we got ourselves into. I'll tell you what I got myself into...hours of rocking my infants loving them to sleep. Lots of smooches and hugs. Lots of funny jokes, talk about golf, and talk about politics. I wouldn't trade my late nights and early mornings with my kids for anything! With Gods help I'm bringing up my boys to be wonderful men of God, to be good husbands one day, to love their mom and dad, and to be an asset to society. What more can we do? So, I hope all you moms out their have a super...

Happy Mother's Day!!!
