pond life kid's swap card

Here is my first try at the swap that I'm in for kid's cards. While I think this is a cute card I do not think it is the winner for this particular swap. The stamp set is from PTI and the paper by DCWV. Although you probably can't see it the water has some Crystal Effects on it. Yeah...not sure what I'm going to do at this point. I want my card to be more boy oriented so...back to the drawing board.

Today is a pretty busy day for me and it is topped off this evening with the mother/daughter banquet at church. You don't have to have a daughter to go...just be one so I'll be there! It is always a fun night out. And the boys wait on us. Yay! But first I'll take Kyler to his dentist appointment which got moved up to 11 a.m. and that means he'll miss his planner party at school. I feel really bad he has to miss it but we must finish this work up.

Today we are to have wind gusts up to 50 mph so I'll be trying to stay indoors as much as possible. I hope your day will be a little calmer than mine and that it is a super Wednesday!

Prayin' for Kyler!

I love this card. I like the simplicity of it. I love that stamp set. I think it's great. I think you're crazy for not thinking it's great.

I LIKE IT!! :D I thought you did that colorblocking yourself...looks so cute with those colors and froggy and all!!

Thanks for the well wishes, Lorie. I was just reading your Bible verse of the day (Colossians 4:5-6) and what a message! That's not easy to do. I realize that I don't make the most of every opportunity to be full of grace and "seasoned with salt". In fact today I've been kindof a downer, even on my blog, so that not being salt and light is it. Thanks for the reminder by posting the verse. I just realized I skipped my whole devotion today and I didn't once pray about my allergy situation--that's bad. Oh, gonna go do that now. I'm sure I'll feel better.
