spring sanity

Official started my crazy time of the year- baseball season just started, 2 boys means 4 games a week. This is on top of their regular afterschool activities. My youngest just had first communion. And of course I volunteered to run field day and do all the food for 5th grade celebration and make cards for all the teachers for teacher appreciation week. Man, it really cuts into my stamping and blog surfing time!!! Just not enough time in the day anymore.

I shouldn't complain, I got to do a stamp camp speed style (5 projects in under an hour) as I had to get to baseball game, since my husband was traveling. I also have a demo quarterly meeting, which is lots of fun projects and swapping. So, I have been working on my father's day themed swap too!

I do have one card to share with you, that I whipped up quick for 2 birthday parties for 8 and 9 year old boys.
I ended up using pumpkin pie craft ink and then clear embossing. I am not happy with my craft spots I just got, very muddy or black tinge to them. I used my star punch and some designer paer. Tough to see but I used my canvas background stamp on blue bayou base.
