On to my project! The first step for me is usually flipping through my idea book or magazines and getting an inspiration. It could be a sketch or colors or just an idea. The paper pieced girl with the umbrella here is my inspiration. I liked the colors on kraft and the paper piecing. Then I pull some products for the card. Kraft cardstock, fun print paper and a cute girl stamp. I know I'll need these scissors too!

Then I realized it opened wrong.It was the scallop edge that messed me up. It's on the sketch. I have never put a scallop edge on the fold edge so I just made that an open edge. I still really like the card, but it's super weird. haha.

Take a stroll through the blogs of all the Paper Gardeners and enjoy some friendly inspiration. This month we are focusing on the all the men, boys and graduates out there.
While you visit, subscribe to each Gardener's blog and take note of each designer's name and their special garden walk word in their blog post. Once you finish your garden tour, send an E-mail to email@example.com with the list of designers and their garden walk word.
Everyone who sends the correct list of designers and words will be entered in a random drawing to win a prize. You need to send an e-mail to the address above; please don't leave your list as a comment. You have until midnight (EST) on Tuesday, May18 to send your list.
And the prize? How about these cute little lads form Eat Cake Graphics:
So enjoy the garden tour (feel free to bring along a lad, Dad or Grad!). Here is the garden tour guide list:
I did a back to basics card using the adorable Boyhood Adventures set by Eat Cake Graphics. I love how sweet this boy is in his hardboard plane. My kids are always making stuff like this. I used the "Thinking Happy Thoughts of You" sentiment from Anytime Sentiments, but cut it so I could have it arranged differently. This long card fits in a business envelope. I love to send cards that are a bit of a different size sometimes.
Thanks for coming to my stop on the blog hop!
ps, my secret special word is "Dads" *wink*.

And I have a new leadership calling at church. people leave their kids in my care for hours... would YOU leave your kids with someone who dyed their hair THIS color?
It does make my eyes look REALLY blue though doesn't it?
Let's laugh about this. The other option is tears and I'm not in the mood.

In Other News:
I'm better! It's been a week now. I'm really truly better! Hurray! Good thing too because I got called yesterday as the Primary President at church. (Primary is the kid's program.) I'm nervous, but excited. I go back and forth on which one I'm more of.
I had a great Mother's Day/Birthday. Brian and the boys made me cards, Brian did dinner, I just rested and went to church pretty much.
Stephen has hives again. I'm going to try to get him into the Dr's this time, it's freaking me out.

I can't tell you how exciting this is. It's like the world was black and now it's in full color again. I'm trying VERY hard not to overdo it, to take it easy still, but I'm SO excited.
I think I might try to get back into the gym tomorrow. Maybe.
