I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend so far. It's been super busy for me. My oldest daughter left a 2 weeks ago to visit some family in Phoenix and is not going to be back until July. I miss her so much. She is going to miss Independence day and Father's day as well. I'm sure she's having a blast though. I just miss her tons.
My husband has been in lots of ongoing pain with his back, which he has been dealing with for the last 10+ years so we have been dealing with that, hence the reason (or excuse) that I have not been blogging much lately!
On Monday, 06/20/2011 my youngest son, Dylon is going to be starting swimming lessons. I can't believe how fast these cute little ones grow up! Two weeks after that, my daughter, Catelynn will go into swimming lessons too. It gives me great comfort to think they will all know how to swim though. I've never been a huge swimming fan so going to the pool will be much easier knowing they know the basics of water safety and swimming.
I recently got an email from www.cricutmachine.com stating they were having a sale on over 70+ Cricut cartridges. They had 4 of them under $15.00 each!! Whoo Hoo! So I bought 2 of them. I bought Mini Monsters and Cindy Loo. Oh my gosh, they are great cartridges. Lots and lots of images to cut out. And the Cindy Loo cartridge has a font on there too! BONUS!
Here are pictures of the carts I bought for $14.95 each:
Well, tomorrow is Father's day and so I couldn't resist doing a card that I know most men love. I went looking for the template of the bikini swimsuit. I finally found one and downloaded it. I absolutely adore how cute this card turned out. I love it! I hope you enjoy it too.
ATG Adhesive runner
Red silky ribbon
The card was cut at around 6 inches as were the layers. I altered the layers by cutting the straps off the top of the suit and adding my own ribbon.
I added my own lace to the top of the bathing suit as well as to the bottoms. (Nice touch, huh?) The butterfly stamp was a small stamp that I had and I colored it with my markers.
Of course, my children wanted to get in on the action so I went ahead and helped them out too and took advantage of having the Mini Monsters carts (because ya know, with boys, everything no matter the holiday, has to be scary in some way!)
Here is my oldest son's card: Brandon, age 10.
Catelynn's (age 7) Father's Day Card, she wanted a "monster"
The last card is Dylon's (age 5) Father's day card. He wanted "zombies" LOL
Thank you so much for looking! I plan on posting some more pictures tomorrow! I hope all you dads out there have a fantastic father's day!! :)
Much love and creativity,
