Stampendous Family Day!!!

Hey there to all of my crafting buddies! I hope you all have had a totally fab Valentines Day and Family Day. On Friday we took our kids to see Percy Jackson's Lightning Thief (it was really good). Then on Saturday we went to West Edmonton Mall Water Park with their uncle and aunt (can you say tired!!!) it was the kids belated christmas present. Sunday we made homemade pizza's for Valentine day and my hubby and I went shopping for a little bit on our own :). Today was a rockin day. We had our family friends (who are like our family we got to pick), they came and spent the day with us. The only down part was my dd got sick to her stomach, and didn't feel up to playing. The guys and kids were occupied so that left Lori and I free to make a card...for the first time at my crafting can you beat that!

The other wonderful thing that happened this weekend to me is that I hopped on over to Just Us Girls and low and behold Tracey Cuccia had put my name among the list of 5 other ladies cards to go and check out. So thank you so much for enjoying my card and putting me in such wonderful company, I feel truly honored. Tracey I really enjoyed your sketch it was perfect for my little Swiss pixie.

Now onto some more good stuff. Lori and I checked out some challenge sites and this is what we came up with 365 Days had an amazing sketch for Day 352. This beautiful sketch was designed by Gloria and it worked just wonderfully with our stamps we picked out and the colors. The color challenge we found at KL Stampin N Scrappin Blog Challenge #17. What are the colors you ask.....the best ones RED, WHITE AND BLACK. What a stunning set of colors together...LOVE IT. Thanks so much Kathy for making this card so easy. In my blog hopping I found this cute challenge blog called Crafty Creations Challenge #54. Saskia new challenge for this week was Friendship. What a wonderful idea and it totally helped us pick which stamps we wanted to use and made creating our card that much easier. It was a lucky day, we got the sketch from Gloria, colors from Kathy and the card idea from Saskia...thanks ladies for all your hard work.

These guys are cuties and it is awesome because they represent the joy of friendship. Who can't feel the love from these two...*wink*

So thank you so much Lori and family for coming and spending such a special day with us, the laughter, food and friendship was just the best today. Pop on over to Lori's to see her STINKIN CUTE CARD.

Sorry I have to run...and help my daughter. Wishing you all a great night and hope you have had some time to craft this weekend.

Til next time here is a smile and thanks for popping in.
