Almost Back to School

The last weekend before our routine goes back to " Normal ".
Make lunches before bed for the kids, up early for work and school, homework, bedtime and repeat the next day.
I may shake up our routine this year as I look further into home schooling.
Iam still undecided.
Homeschooling would be a new routine.
A big change.
We spent the morning with my Bald Mans sister and Niece.
Seems like forever ago that my kids were that small.
Back in the days that I should've put more thought into home schooling verses traditional schooling.
Arghh to be able to rewind and do things differently.
Iam sure I am not the only parent out there that wishes we could rewind and have a do over.
That brings me to my card that I worked on today.
Baby Card!!
A friend of mine asked me to make her a card for a friend who just had a baby boy.
I havent had a chance to play with this little cutie by Mo Manning so I thought today was the day.
I went with my Bo Bunny papers and a few of my my go to buttons.

Four Months Till Christmas!!!!

Can you believe how fast this year has been going by.

This months theme is Christmas songs.
I thought My Kraftin Kimmie Orphan Annie stamp suited the song Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
Imagine her first Christmas in the mansion with Daddy Warbucks.
Iam also going to add her in the Kraftin Kimmie Anything goes challenge.

My next two cards are  inspired by Frosty the Snowman, What a jolly happy Soul!
Lol this Frosty may not be too happy to be photo bombed though.

I made two and the plan was to choose my favourite.
Honestly I like them both so I thought I may as well use them both.

Love all around you

This summer has been a challenge with more than a few people in our lives leaving us to soon.
Family and friends, young and old.
Its made me realize that you really have to show those that are important to you a lot of love now, not wait till tomorrow.
I have been blessed this summer to have had a lot of people ask me to make them cards to express their love and joy for the people in their own lives.
I have made Engament cards, wedding cards and anniversary cards.
I have been thrilled to be even a small  part of all this love. 
Hug as often as you can everyday.
