When did you get an owl?
Yep, my kid is quite the entertainer. I've gotta get some stuff picked up so the house can get cleaned tomorrow. Have a good evening!

I love this princess. She's from the clear stamps in the dollar bin at Michael's and I bought her specifically to make Macy's birthday card. I paper pieced her dress and wings. I don't usually paper piece because it's a bit tedious, but I love the way it looks. I hate to run off, but I've gotta get ready for church. I'll leave you with some pictures of the boys at Macy's party this afternoon, which was at Excalibur.
Have a good evening!

The front says, "A little birdie told me it was your birthday..." You pull the sides of the card and it flips to the other side.
This side says, "So I ate him. Your secret's safe with me. Have a wonderful birthday!" Isn't that hilarious? I'll try to get proper credits on the stamp maker and the maker of this card and update yall. Hope your day is going great! I've got a Heart to Home retreat today so hopefully I'm getting some rest, relaxation, and refreshing.

I did not really enjoy making this card, so I'm not thrilled with it. When I don't have fun on a card, I usually don't like it. I think it's pretty, but I fought with it. A lot. I was so aggravated by the time I finished it that I started to not take a picture of it. Anyway, I'm sure the fact that I'm tired and grumpy has nothing to do with it. I gotta help put up groceries. Good night!
He's going back to work tomorrow, but said he'd finish this in the evenings since he didn't have kids to watch. I should probably get some dinner started. We're having pancakes tonight. We haven't had pancakes for dinner in a long time. I'm not a good cook, but this is one of the few meals I think I'm pretty good at. Before you ask, no, the pancakes aren't frozen. Hopefully I'll be on here again this evening with some craft projects I've made. I also want to share pictures of the cards I received in my SCS Stampendous card swap that came in today. Have a great evening!

Anthony is sitting in my lap (with the laptop in his lap), so this post is taking forever! He gets so excited about the pictures and he wants to type. Joey is running around the living room playing Mario and talking to himself. I did manage to get 2 cards made this evening while they were playing outside. This first one is using the layout from one of the cards my secret sister Daisy (Mayadiz on SCS) sent me. I've been wanting to make it and finally took the time. The orange paper is from a new pack Aunt Pat and I each got last weekend.
It's pretty plain, but still elegant. I didn't put a sentiment on the inside because I don't want to limit what it can be used for. I'm watching Dirty Jobs right now and they're gonna be making parchment paper and vellum from goat hides in the next segment. Eeww, gross. I may have to let that one remain a mystery. Anthony's wanting a turn to "push" now, so here's his special message for yall.

I would tell you what I got him for his birthday, but
a) he might find out from someone who reads this, and
b) I don't actually have it yet even though I know what I'm getting him.
I hope your Tuesday is starting out great!

I also wanted to show yall what I made to help out with a baby shower at work. I used Lauren Meader's wonderful tutorial on how to use a circle punch to make a card look like a baby onsie. The mom-to-be is doing elephants in the baby's room. Since it's a boy, I gave the elephant a blue present.
I've got some more things to show you, but I'll put those in a post for tomorrow. Have a great evening!
