Card Making Tuesday

OK, well my day started early this morning since I decided to get up when George left so I could have a quiet coffee and some time to myself! And it was well worth it since I haven't done that in a little while. The boys got up between 7 and 7:30 sometime with Kyle actually sleeping later!!

About 8:30am the doorbell rang and I assumed it was Sophia, but when I checked, it was actually the mail carrier and I was totally excited to see that my Scrapperie Summer Camp kit had already arrived! I wasn't expecting it until at least the end of the week, so I was sure happy! Sandi packed her kit crazy full as usual and it's hard to know where to start with it!

This (plus the jelly beans not pictured!!) was what I opened this morning!
I had watched Kristina Werner's Make a Card Monday video this morning and totally thought of that when I opened the box and thought even if I don't have time for a layout during naptime, I do have time for a card, so this one was totally inspired by hers!
Supplies: Background stamp is Cornish Heritage Farms. Ink was VersaMark with white embossing powder. Patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket. Yellow is Bo Bunny polka dot cardstock (though I used the solid reverse side). Blue fringe is a Doodlebug Frill strip. Flower is Prima. Cardstock button in the flower center is Prima. The letter "g" is also Prima chipbooard. The "thanks" stamp is 3 Bugs in a Rug.

I also had someone else crafting with me this afternoon! Kyle decided he wanted to get out his stuff as well as some of mine, of course, and make a card for Daddy! We set up a little table beside mine and we had lots of fun. We even used the "salt" (aka embossing powder) on his stamped stars. This was a first for him and he was quite excited!

Of course, when he saw me taking a picture of my card, he wanted me to take a picture of his as well, so here it is! We had to take a picture of the inside as well since he did such a great job!

Well, I'm guessing the little ones will be up soon, so I'd better wrap this up for now. Will do a Kyle update soon too, but needless to say, he's finally feeling much better after his tonsilectomy/adenoidectomy!
