whale wishes

This fun little card (4 1/4 x 4 1/4) was made for one of the boys that Todd has in his high school boys Bible study group during the school year. Two weeks ago this young man (entering his sophomore year) had surgery on his back for scoliosis and he got home earlier this week. He will be flat in bed for about a month so we decided that we needed to give him a little something. So, I made this card (it isn't too girlish or babyish...right?), we got a couple of movies at Walmart yesterday and will fill the basket with the movies, some popcorn and other treats and take it to him probably this weekend. He is a very polite kid so he'll probably say he likes it all even if he doesn't.

Guess what I got yesterday? Yep, my new SU! order. I liked a lot of the stuff and with the extra 20% off that demos get at pre-order I knew I had to have almost all of it...yep, I'm spoiled! I'm hoping to make a couple of creations with it this weekend but I have some other things to work on as well so we shall see. The most exciting thing for me is the new scallop punch as I dislike using my corner rounder for scallop borders so I really hope it works well!

And...today...today is the day I get to go pick up Kyler! I have missed him so much while he's been gone! I'm car pooling with another mom and we'll get up to the camp around 11, have lunch with them, hang out for a little program and then probably be home by 3 at the latest. Kyler is going to freak when he sees his room though because it is a total mess! We moved all the toys out from under his loft bed and cut the bed down to a more normal size, yet a size where we can still use it for some storage underneath. The plan is to go through the toys tomorrow (I hope) and have his room back in order quickly. Tonight is pizza and a movie night and I think that will be good due to the tired factor.

Just a little more news and then I'll leave you along, k? Please take a look at my side bar. You will see a way cool 3 Little DReaMs Design Team tag making my part in the DT official...woohoo! Also, you will see the links to all the DT members that were just announced yesterday! We had 15 (I believe) applications and could only choose 6 so it was SUCH a hard decision! In the end Katie chose (and did a great job I must say) Sarah Anderson, Sparkle Bliatout, Courtney Fowler, Dani Marcus, Melissa Earnest, and Heidi Michael. Congratulations to all of you girls!


I hope you guys have a super See you tomorrow!

I think that card is great, and I don't think boys are too picky anyway. He'll prolly be happy you thought of him.
