Hug a Dad today...
Wonderful, Beautiful Card Creations....

It's not a diving board...

it's a runway.  My little girl made her first arm floatie-less jump off the diving board last night and we giggled away as we watched her walk (strut) to the end and hop right off.  She came up beaming and grinning from ear to ear while Mom and Dad held their breath a bit.  :-)  We have three little fishies on our hands and they can't get enough of the water.  We got home from the pool and they jumped into their little two-ring blow-up pool and picked right up where they left off.  I remember doing the same thing as a kid.  I remember spending nearly ever afternoon at the pool with my friends.  It's fun to see my children now enjoying the same things.  :-)

A few cards today...I'm finding it more difficult to squeeze in my creating time as the kids clamor to go here and there and do this and that.  I can't's summer.  But, I did tell them we were going to have a quiet afternoon at home today and Daddy promised to take them to the pool tonight.  He's been enjoying it as much as they do after a hot day at work. 

First is just a fun, shabby baby card.  The base of the card is some vintage stationery I picked up at a yard sale last summer.  It has the prettiest matching envelopes and I've been having fun creating with it!  A My Mind's Eye diecut, some Fancy Pants chipboard, Papertrey Sweet Blush buttons, Basic Grey stickers and rubons, Zva Creative flowers and some special WRMK trim finish off the card.



And then just a simple little card made with the Papertrey Bird Watching set...I love how the Papertrey stamp designers almost always throw in some images that can be used to create backgrounds.  This set has that fun scroll image used on the pink cardstock.
