It's Saturday & I Made a Card!

Wow! What a busy morning it has been already. My oldest had his last game for the winter basketball league today at 8am. Waking up two boys earlier than 7:00am on a Saturday is torture. They did pretty good after about 30 minutes. I almost offered the toddler coffee to see if that would help after his 4th meltdown. It was either that or I was going to sit in the middle of the floor and join him.

We finally all pulled it together and headed out around 7:20. The green light gods were on our side and traffic wasn't bad at all. We pulled up right at 8:00 so technically we got there right on time! GO US!

I am so proud of what Caleb has achieved since joining this league. He has shown much improvement and shows through his work that this is a true passion of his. He finished out this game with 4 points to help lead his team to a win. He is ready for a little time off before summer camps start.

Since we had an early morning Noah actually closed his eyes around 12:15 to take a nap. I couldn't be happier when I looked over and saw that sweet face so peaceful and quiet. I cherish those moments lately.

I made a direct bee line for my craft room so I could have a little time to be crafty. I haven't made a card for a challenge in far too long so I decided to do that today. I went by to my local scrapbook store, EMI Scrapbooking to look at a new line by Teresa Collins. It is so pretty.

I looked at a few challenge blogs and decided to go with the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.

The new line from Teresa Collins that I picked up is called Wonderful and it is definitely the right word for it. It has beautiful colors and is perfect for Spring. I didn't use a whole lot of it in my card but I plans for a few more cards. 

I love how you can just use card stock but use embossing folders to add texture and it makes a beautiful card. The woodgrain folder is one of my favorites! 

Now I have to clean up this terrible mess I have made on my desk. It never fails. It will be clean one minute and a disaster the next. Guess that's the life of a crafter! 

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my card. Happy Stampin!
