On Saturday we went to Ennis, TX, for their annual Bluebonnet festival. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time. Alex was such a good boy and we got some awesome photos. He is 3 months old!

Well, I had to look it up in the dictionary.
I just love this Al Fresco collection by Tinkering Ink. The colors are so vibrant and fresh. The last card is made with Provincial Fare collection, which I love just as much.
Have you seen these new Peek-a-boo Albums???? I am working on one, slowly, but I will get it done. If you would like to see some examples check out this Peek-A-boo Album by Tessa Ann Watte, Peek-A-Boo Album by Summer Ford, and Peek-A-Boo Album by Pam Callaghan.
Have a great weekend. We are taking some pictures in the Bluebonnets tomorrow, I hope.

I really need to share some new photos of Alex. I know, I am way behind. I thought I would have more time now that my husband is home, but that is not the case.

Danielle's challenge is to create a card with: polka dots, chipboard, paint and a butterfly. The chipboard is Creative Imaginations that I painted. I stamped my background with polka dots, the stamp is from one of Stampin' Up sets. The butterfly and tag are from SEI Jolie Chocolat collection, full of butterflies and glitter. I added glitter to some of the flowers using Around The Block flocking and glitter set. It came in one of my goodie boxes from Cards.
Danni has a challenge on her blog to use eyelets so I added little flower eyelets to the scalloped edge. I had these forever.
Melissa Phillips has a challenge on her blog to make a card using chipboard shape, stamp and decorative scissors.
Wow, how is that, one card, four challenges.
If you didn't see my other note, I will be drawing winners tomorrow, Thursday.

Don't forget the crochet flowers that I am giving away in this post. I have no idea how to make them, I am still learning. My mom was trying to teach me, but I just couldn't figure it out and Alex was requiring my constant attention.

Remember when I told you that my mom was here and she made me ALL these flowers. We went to Hobby Lobby and got some crochet yarn, some crochet needles and a book, for me. I wanted to learn how to crochet. I should have started with something simple and not flowers. It took her less than 20 minutes to make one. Well, we didn't think of it until the end of her trip, could you imagine how many flowers she would have made? She was here for two months.
Anyway, I want to give some away. Leave a comment here and I will randomly pick a winner or two.
Here is my card for CPS #58. I used NEW Cherry Blossom Branch and Floral Birdcage. You can't tell from the photo, but I stamped the birdcage on separate sheet of paper and cut it out. I adhered it with foam adhesive. I colored the images with pearlescent chalk and my blender pen. I forgot I had them. The papers are Making Memories Chelsea Place that I found at Michaels last week.
Have a great weekend. My husband comes home tonight!

I noticed how everyone has their names at the end of each post. After some research I found out that you can add a signature to your post. Go to My Live Signature and create your signature. Go visit Allison, she has a great tutorial on how to add it to your posts. If you have any questions let me know. My signature had a black background when I saved it to my desktop and then uploaded to Photobucket. To fix that problem I chose to download signature option. When the new screen opens I copied the URL they provided and pasted it I was going to post some cards, but I am just too tired. I will do it tomorrow.
