...they're awfully tired of this chilly, endless rain, you know. And so am I! I guess that's why I was drawn to this sweet image from Made by Janet. I have a whole page of sweet little birdies and this one with the tiny umbrella is one of my favorites.
I framed it in with a couple clipboard pieces, some K&Co papers and a Making Memories journaling note for this card. I used another image from Janet for a birthday card...
...used another journaling note and paper from Papertrey, along with one of their Tiny Tags and a Martha Stewart tag for this one...
Finally a little project for our local "Crop for the Cure"--a fun day of scrapping and visiting--and I'm sure there was a little food involved...all for a good cause. These pin cushions were used for door prizes, and thanks to my procrastination...were made quickly with things I had on hand from my Blog-aversary cushions. I actually had this project, and the pink 'breast cancer awareness' ribbons in mind when I chose this fabric.
I really like how the embellishments nestled right into the pink ribbons. Hope they found some happy new owners.
Finally--a picture of my little Jillian. She had a field trip today that I got to join in on. It was a great hands-on experience for her and her Kindergarten friends--many of whom will never travel to the beach to experience these critters in their natural environment.
We had a great time! It's been, and will continue to be, a busy time for me with all the end-of-the-school-year activities with my kids. We'll take them out of school a few days early (due to snow make-up days) at the end of the month to go on our trip to Disney. Then we'll come back to our usual summer busy-ness...swimmin' and playin' in the backyard, and meeting Daddy now and then while he's teaching week-long classes here and there around the state. In other words...my time for creating will be limited, as it has been the last couple weeks. Along with that--my time to visit you all will be limited also. I am behind in that area, I know, and I apologize...I sure do miss keeping up with everyone, and always appreciate that you check in on me.
I do have a date with a blog hop this weekend that I am excited about. There is a great photo for inspiration--hope you'll join in for fun, prizes and a chance to provide some of the inspiration for the next hop as a designer!
Until then (Saturday)...I'll pray for sunshine for you all!! And if you have any extra...please send it my way!!
Thanks so much for stopping!
