I haven't posted in a very long while. Lots going on here as usual. Right now I have been sick the last 10 days. First one of the worst cold I've ever had, now a sinus and ear infection. I have to tell you that when Mom isn't up and running the whole house is in chaos. My little family knew that it was serious business if I wasn't after them about keeping the house tidy (they would call it nagging) LOL. Still all of you can relate that the laundry still got done, everyone got driven to school, and there was still food in the kitchen and dinner made. I am grateful I didn't run into anyone I know during one of my sweatpants wearing, hair in ponytail, no make up, red nosed grocery store runs. Yes, I'm a total spaz.

Anyway today is the last day of school! That means I will be able to sleep in until 7:30! I still have a husband to see off and dogs to take out. The twins turned 16 during my blog absence. Yes, I am the proud Momma of 16 year old twins now (eeek). They are still my babies and in my eyes I see 5 year old little girls that hold each other's hand to walk into their classroom together. Then they remind me that they are 16 and teenagers (grrrr). But that's okay, all part of the growing process right?

So here is my cards for today I have many and will be sharing a few over the next few days. The first one is once again one of my favorites. I made a version of this to sell but it was very girly had seam binding and a button. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of it but once I make it again I will post it. I thought this one would be good for a male of female. Hard for me to make non-girly fluffy cards so I am happy how it came out. Don't know if you can tell but the background is scored with my Martha score board and distressed it with my fancy Tim Holtz tool (love it!).

Second is a very girlie birthday card I made using my Wild Card cartridge. I got my hot little hands on Wild Card a couple of months ago for like $17 at Target on clearance and was ecstatic. Also the sentiment is TPC a stamp company that really never caught my eye but I have to tell you they are doing some really cute stamps for card makers. You can pick these up at Joann's. The sticker is Martha Stewart. To say pretty much everything she puts out in her paper crafting sticker line is awesome is an understatement.

Thanks so much for looking at my little creations. Until next time Amigas.
