Hangin' with you

Good morning!! Well, my hubby & son made it to Baraboo ok.....I was a little worried about the weather & the traffic. They were driving through Madison around 5:00....yuck!! And it was supposed to rain & storm last night, but I think it missed us. It's quite windy & a bit chilly today, but the sun is shining & it's DRY so I'm sure they are happy & having a great time!



Today's card is made with an older stamp called Possum Pals. It's another that had been on my wish list for quite a while & it finally made its way to my house. I colored it with Prismas & gamsol, & added Stickles to the flowers. I used a SU Naturals Ivory base, along with K&Co McKenna papers. Usually I buy the smaller pads for card purposes, but this time I splurged & bought the big 12x12....these papers are GORGEOUS. I bought the bigger one with the intention of making some bags & boxes for some of the staff at school for Easter, but never quite got around to it. Maybe for end of year. Meanwhile, the papers are finding homes on my cards. I feel this is quite a simple card, maybe because I didn't matte my layers. But I like how it turned out. I added some punched flowers (the big one in the right corner is vellum) & some Dew Drops & called it done.



Here's a close up pic of the pals. I didn't get a picture of the inside, but I used the same papers & stamped the "I love hangin' with you" sentiment. It reminds me of my 6 yr old, who is always asking me "Mom, can I hang with you?". He first said it about a month ago & I laughed so hard I had tears coming out of my eyes. I'm sure he heard it at school, but that phrase coming out of a 6 yr old mouth is too funny! He says it all the time now & it still makes me smile. Like I'd ever deny that request :)

Well I have a fun filled day of cleaning & laundry ahead of me. I'm sure I will play a bazillion games of Trouble, too.....my son's favorite game......while watching a bazillion episodes of Spongebob. That's ok....I love both......& I love that it's just Michael & me for the day. Since he's been in kindergarten.....we haven't been able to "hang" together too much!!

I will hopefully be back with my High Hopes challenge card tomorrow! As of now, it's still just in my head, but hopefully I will get some time tonight to actually put it on paper!!! Have a great Saturday!!
