Well our vacation was a blast! My son did awesome through it all. Couple moments of complete and utter crankiness due to not sleeping enough, but they usually ended in a nap, which is not something he does often. But when he wasn't going to bed till about 10 pm and only sleeping in an extra hour or so, his body just plum wore out a couple of times! My husband and I just had the best time seeing his reaction to Disney World, the rides at Disney, the Cruise ship, snorkeling, and the Atlantis Resort aquariums. I am not sure how he processed it all. And for anyone that is looking for a vacation with kids, let me tell ya a cruise is a fantastic way to go! The kids activities kept him entertained and he kept choosing "Camp Carnival" over having dinner and seeing the show with us...which was kind of nice to get some dinners where you weren't trying to keep him entertained the whole time. Overall, a wonderful experience!
So now that I am back, all of the sudden it is Mother's Day...so glad that I thought to make my last cards Mother's Day cards because I just wouldn't be able to get them together by Sunday otherwise! Anyway, obviously I made my Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #55 another Mother's Day card...this time it is for Grandma. Grandma is a pink fanatic, so I of course had to oblige. I pulled out the Raspberry Tart DSP from Stampin' Up! and stamped the flowers from Greenhouse Garden in Rose Red and Cameo Coral to match. All of the flowers were cut out and layered together and a pearl sticker was added to the centers that are visible. I pleated the ribbon mainly because I couldn't figure out where to put a bow or knot. Then the scallops below the ribbon also got some pearl stickers. Last touch was to pierce holes around the main panel.
Now you have to check out the creations by the other Sugar Babies: Audrey, Candace, Dana, Julie, Kathy, Kelli, Nancy, Renata, and the Sugar Mama, Korin. Better yet, make a card with the sketch and link it up to the Sweet Stop Blog...we would love to see what you do with the sketch! Have fun getting inky and thanks for checking out my kind of engineering.
