Wow, June 1st!

Wow, I cannot believe today is June 1st. My baby will be 10 in a few weeks. Time is going by too fast. Today has been quiet for me and the weekend call. Jack and Simon went to church, the end of VBS program was today. I don't usually go when on call, because of the need to take two cars and beepers. I hate to have to get up in the middle of something and leave. I picked up lunch for us at my favorite restaurent, and I plan on doing nothing the rest of the day, hopefully. When I finally got home yesterday, and sat down, I crashed. We ended up working 8 1/2 hours.

The card above is one I did this a.m., while everyone was gone. I may use it for a challenge I have been given this month, but not sure yet. The cardstock is from Archivers. My good friend and bella sistah, LeAnne, sent this papercrafting kit to me not to long ago, and I could not wait to use it. I love the papers and colors. The DP is from Daisy D's Chasing Butterflies Collection. The stamps are from MFT and it is called "Say Charge". The ribbon is from my stash, and the flower and button brads are from Bazzill "imaginisce"---Crotched Flowers and Evening Surf Button Brads. I used the paper piercing technique on the main stamped image. It is like playing with paper dolls again. Everything on the image is pp except the shoes, and they are colored with my CTMH markers-Cranberry, Moonstruck, and New England Ivy. The other technique I used is layering. I combined all three primary colors from the DP to make the layering.

One last thing for today is my Sunday Encouragement---------------
"I have learned from experience that the greater part of our
happiness or misery, depends on our dispositions and not our
circumstances---------Martha Washington"
Take care, hug your loved ones, and God bless ya'll!!!
