Happy Monday Morning!!!

Can't believe we are starting the second week in! Well my DH and I enjoyed some time in Winnipeg, we had a ton of rain but we enjoyed walking in it. It sure does have some beautiful spots and was a great way to spend 6 days. It was very busy when we got home. Our children really wanted our attention, we went shopping for some dessert for my dad's 80th birthday party and then we tackled the problem of all of the toys my kids have ever been given (still a work in progess but a huge dent made). On Saturday, we celebrated my dad's 80th birthday and my good friend Lori braved the trenches to meet a bunch of my family. Thanks Lori.

Happy belated Mother's Day. Mine was really good, we went and saw Iron Man 2 which I must say totally ROCKED!! We visited with my mom and dad for a few and then came home. Earlier in the day we were working on getting all of the toys ready to leave my crafting area!!!! OH the JOY of a relaxing room...LOL. It will happen some day very soon...*dancing*

Today, will be filled with doing laundry, babysitting Ethan and working on my craft room. My DH husband is off this week and well...he always keeps me very busy so I will have to sneak some time into craft...LOL. I have truly missed my challenges. Oh if I get lucky I will have some candles lit with some hot chocolate....oh man that sounds like a plan to do asap, even before I send my kids to school. My house is sooooo quiet...all you can hear is my typing...LOL.

Enough of my yapping and onto the rockin color combo that Megan has this week for Picture Perfect Creations . My card came together easily this morning so hop on over to see the works of all the other PPC Creators (names & links will be added later). They have some super fab works of art again this week. The sketch I used was from the Our Creative Corner weekly Thursday Sketch. One look at it and I new what to do...

Here is my master piece this morning:
I just love butterflies....can't wait to actually see one...hmmmm. IT is spring right????

All of my stamps are from Verve (just love 'em). Paper: Perfect Plum, Soft Suede, Sage Shadow, Bravo Burgandy and whisper white. Ink: perfect plum, bravo burgandy, sage shadow. Marker: SU. Accessories: burgandy buttons, paper piercer, paper flowers, circle and scalloped circle spellbinders, and corner round (SU), D'vine Swirl folder and Swiss Dots folder (cuttlebug), Martha Stewart Punch. Three flowers would have been perfect but I only had two so I stepped out of my box and put them on anyway...LOL.

Well I should go, waking the kids up for school is a must, breakfast and out the door is equalling working with my DH today...LOL. Have a super Monday and please hop on over to Picture Perfect Creations to check out the colors.
