ladybug-card Happiness is a beautiful spring day!

This morning I spent some time outside planting flowers and watching the birds.  I took some pictures but haven’t put them on the computer yet.  I’ll do that tomorrow.  All the babies are growing by next week some might be ready to leave the nest – the Robin babies are pretty big now and keep stretching their wings like they are ready to fly.

This afternoon I took Ryan to his tennis match he played the boys line 2 singles match for his team and won 8 games to 5.  He had a good sports weekend so far – one more soccer game tomorrow afternoon.  I took pictures of him playing tennis and want to work on some tennis scrapbook pages.

Tonight all of us went out to dinner as a family – we haven’t had the chance to do that in a while.  It seems somebody always has something going on.  And then we came home and sat outside on the porch for a little while enjoying the weather while Ryan and the dogs played in the backyard.

So a beautiful spring day reminded me of this card that we made in the Stamper’s Club back in March.  The ladybug is a punch art project and the card itself is actually a slider card.  The ladybug can slide around on the little track that is cut into the front of the card.  We used one of the new jumbo brads to hold the ladybug in the track.  It was a fun interactive card.

I worked in the craft room tonight – finishing up samples for the Blog Tour on Monday – I have all of mine completed now – my stamp set is the Sense of Time set.  Come join the tour on Monday – all the links along the tour will be available from 8:00 am to Midnight.  blog-tourI hope you will take some time to stop by and join me and others on the tour – traveling around the country visiting demonstrator blogs and seeing samples using products from the Occasion Mini Catalog.  All the deomstrators are very excited!

I also finished one of the scrapbook pages for my Wednesday night class. I’ll show you a sneak peek tomorrow.monika-signature-2
