Up first are three from Saturday night. It was funny. The four little girls went upstairs to make towns with a jar of flowers and used all the hot wheels/matchbox cars to 'travel' from one town to the next. The boys decided to make cards with grammy. First up is the youngest of the boys, Drew. My ginger-haired darling child.
It's a little blurry, but so were grandma's eyes by this time. Don't you just love that tongue hanging out? He's a wonderful child.
Next up is Drew's brother, Grant. He has green eyes just like his grandma.
Love this boy, too. He's ten and really got into card making. I think we could have gone on for hours, except parents made us stop for bedtime... Go figure!
The last of the boys, is Carter. I couldn't get him to look up for his photo. "Grammy, I need to get this done." He's one of the sweetest boys in the world.
See that notebook on the table? Well, Mr. Carter made a card sketch, without any prompting from me mind you, so he'd know exactly what to do. Turned out just like he wanted. Adorable!
Sunday morning we had an Easter egg hunt. I didn't have enough baskets for them all, so I decorated some white paper bags with their names and such, and after their parents hid all the eggs, it was pure (and delightful) chaos!
They are arranged in chronological order; Avie, 3; Kaylin, 5; Drew, 7; Samantha, 7; Lily, 9; Carter, 10; and Grant, 10.
And last, I promise, is one blurry one of me with them all.
Who knew that I could fall so madly and deeply in love with so many little ones? I am so very blessed! Sure hope that at some point we can get all twenty together! Yikes!
Now. Cards. Will keep the rest of this short, not list ingredients, but if you want any info, do email me, and I'll be happy to answer any questions.
My first card goes to The Heart Desires challenge. Another amazing mood board, and I think you can tell what I was drawn to:
Any my card (finally!)
My second card is heading off to both Fusion (I just used the sketch here) and to CAS(E) This Sketch:
Mine looks like this:
And as promised, I'll stop now. Have a great weekend and
