Happy Sunday!

How was your weekend?? Do anything fun?? I had a great time this weekend. Friday we celebrated my son's 6th birthday (he's the one in green in the photos). We went to Chuck E Cheese's and all the kid had a great time. Unfortunately they can not all look at the camera and smile at the same time so this is the best group shot I got. I love the next photo of the birthday boy with his older brother. His older brother told him to, "smile hard". So he did! I think he looks hilarious.

I told him that I only got him 1 present and he hesitated for a minute and then said, "but I want a lot of presents". I couldn't help laughing. He said it so seriously. (he got more than one present) His favorite present.....Spongebob house shoes. I don't think he has taken them off yet!!! LOL

Saturday we mostly just played around the house. I did some scrapping and made this Thankful card. I actually combined three challenges. Mojo Monday's sketch challenge #214, Frosted Design for embossing and Fussy and Fancy's Combine "be thankful" with a featured sentiment. I'm cutting it close on time for one of them (not sure which one at this moment) so this post will be a bit short as I rush to try to make the deadline.

I used mostly Imaginisce paper and embellies. I used some Stickles and ribbon from my stash. I embossed leaves using an embossing plate from Crafter's Companion. Simple and clean.

I entered Cheryl's Christmas Challenge #4 at Sketches4all. She has a sketch challenge going on right now. I just love her sketches. They are just so versatile. You should go join in the challenge too!

I used my new EP Holly Jolly Christmas paper kit that I was given as a gift. (love it!!)

We ended last night with a movie night. We popped popcorn and watched Cars 2. It was great! The bluray version is just gorgeous!!

Now for a sleepy Sunday. So far the morning has consisted of sleeping in, eating a breakfast made by my mother in law, drinking coffee and reading the paper and now sitting down in my office to blog and then scrap!! Life is good.

Don't forget to enter my giveaway for the the awesome 12 Days of Christmas E-Book. And remember that the Sketches4all blog hop is still going on and you get your name in the hat for a RAK that I am giving away just by commenting! Happy Sunday!!


  1. I really like your thankful card. Such pretty paper and the sweet little orange bow.
    Your home for the holidays card is so cheerful.
    Thanks for sharing! :)

    BTW, looks like a fun party! Kids will never all smile at the camera at the same time. There must be some sort of rule against it that grown-ups have forgotten about as we get older! :D

  2. Busy lady! Love your projects, as always...and your kids are ADORABLE. Glad to hear you liked Cars 2. I'm a big kid at heart and have been thinking of purchasing that one on BluRay myself! Loved the first one. ;)

  3. Eeek ! Your kids are so cute! Love the smile hard! LOL Kids are so funny. I am fully recovered from my many parties and for the first time (YES first time) I pulled my daughter's tooth out! (Usually that is a job for Dad but he is sick so I had to do it!) I tried to be brave but was gagging as I did but I did do it! They were both laughing at me so that made it come out easier! I did a whole lotta cleaning and now almost 7:30 I am ready to craft!
    Ok I am just loving this Xmas paper! Your card is to die for!! Love Love Love it! And the Thankful is so sweet! The paper is awesome love that owl! Have a great week! :)

  4. Love your "thankful" card. The embossing on the ribbon tails adds just the right touch and the bling representing the breezes blowing the leaves is just adorable! All around beautiful card! Thanks for sharing with us a Frosted Designs!
