Hey, Chickie...
Warm and wonderful...

Testing, testing...

My little dude had another round of Taekwondo testing today (and daddy too...love that they do this together).  Only a few more steps until he reaches his black belt.  So fun to see him out there and see how far he's come.  Broke his board on the second try today....such a confidence booster for those little ones.  :-)  We left the girls by Grandpa and Grandma, so it was so nice to be able to just sit and watch today..

Just a fun card for you tonight....Papertrey is sponsoring the gals over at CPS again this week and so I decided to play along.  Here is my version of this week's CPS sketch.  I used one of Melissa's beautiful sentiments from the new Handwritten Notes set.  Gosh, I wish I had handwriting that was as fun as that!  :-)  This was one of those cards that took forever, was torn apart a zillion times and came out nothing like I had planned.  Some days are just like that, huh?  


The flowers were created by stamping the tiny bud-flowers from the With Sympathy set several times in a circle.  I like the way they turned out and might have to try that again....
