Happy Monday to you all--and Happy last week of April! Wow, it's almost May already--seems like not that long ago we had 60" of snow on the ground and now all my trees & flowers are blooming and last night we had severe thunderstorms, yikes! I'm more than ready for summer though--I love the hot weather and bright sun, nothin' better! Yesterday was my daughter's 14th birthday and I think she had a pretty good birthday. Friday night she had friends over, they went to the movies and then camped out in the backyard AND lasted until 7:30 am the next morning! Yep, at 3:30 am they were waking me up having a Nerf gun fight in the backyard in the 50 degree weather, brrrrrrrrrrrr! No sleep for the weary ya know and some of those girls had to go play soccer and lacrosse games that day, lol! On Sunday James and the kids took our 1 dog on a charity 5K walk--I didn't make it cuz I had tripped in my craftroom (not surprising, I trip A LOT, lol) and pulled my lower back, so me and Casey (my older cairn who couldn't walk that far) stayed at home. I didn't want to make it worse before I leave for Disney. Then we went to dinner for Alexa's birthday---she got 2 tickets to the Taylor Swift concert in June, a silver/blue topaz key necklace and a bunch of clothes & gift cards from us. She made out pretty well, lol! And I'm gearing up for my trip to Disney World on Thursday to celebrate my birthday with hubby and I've got lots to get done before I go (of course!)!!
-For those that entered for the $25 gift certificate blog candy by guessing what time the girls would come inside---well they made it all night! So there were a few of you that said she would last all night so I have to print your names out and have Alexa draw a winner. I will post that tomorrow for you!
-Susana's Store will be having a fantastic NEW RELEASE from Elisabeth Bell this Friday--the DT will be having a Blog Hop to show off these super-cute (cutest evah) stamps! And you can enter to WIN some awesome Blog Candy on the store blog HERE!
She's colored with Copics of course (melon: R24,R22,R20,YG67,YG63,G20/ dress: RV17,RV14,RV10/ hair: E25,E31,E50) and then I coated the red part of the watermelon with diamond glaze. The grass, lace trim and the white rind of the melon got stardust stickles on them for some fun sparkle. A perfect summertime card!
See ya back here tomorrow!
