My Weekend!!

Hello everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!! I know I did and I can say I did enjoy it. After all the long hours at work through the week, I got to have some me time and enjoy my grandson for a few hours and do some stamping for fun, Well that was after all the laundry, housework and mowing etc. But I did enjoy having some time just to play around.
I got to keep my little man Nathaniel for a few hours while his big sister had a ballgame. She is doing really good and is having a blast. This is her first year playing and she loves it. Nathaniel is growing like a weed now. He had lost a lot of weight but come to find out it was his formula so after they got him on the right stuff he sure is putting the weight on now. We are so glad to see him growing. He done a lot of sleeping while I had him lol.

Here is a close up of my little man!

My Time

I got my new Country Cousin's from Sugar Nellie in the mailbox this last week and finally got to play with them this weekend. So I have just had some me time and made a couple of cards. This one is called Country Garden and I have colored her with my copic's. I used K&Co paper and used my retro flower punches and MS leaf and branch punchs with brads and spacers in the center. I added some flat pearls to the top and I also added some raffia ribbon to the card that was given to me by a very dear friend.

Now this one is called Country Style from Sugar Nellie now isn't she adorable?? She is colored with my copic's also. I used the oval nestiblities from Spellbinders and my papers are from K&Co. Again I have used my retro flower punchs along with the MS branch and leaf punch with a button brad in the center. I added a corsage pin in the top and the bottom I glued metal corner piece on.

Now I decided while I was enjoying myself so that I would join in a few of the challenges,so here is a card for Stamp with Stampavie. I have used another one of the Country Cousins from Sugar Nellie. Stamp with Stampavie has a wonderful sketch by Mandy and I so loved making this one. Wonderful Mandy!!. This Sugar Nellie stamp is Painting Rainbows and I colored her with my copic's. My papers are K&Co and my flourish is a rub on from Holy Cow. My flowers are Prima and the branch and leaf punch is MS. I added some crystal brads to the card and my little flowers at the top are from my SU punch the create is from the T!m Holtz line.

Now look at this cute little feller!!!! This is one of the new stamps from the Whiff of Joy Stamp Kit!!! Elizabeth and Katharina outdone themselves I so love everyone of them. I sure hope you all got to order your stamp kit for it is just gorgeous. Here I used the Sketch Saturday sketch and made a card for my new little grandson to give to his daddy for his first father's day.I colored him with my copic's and added some SU buttons with stickles in the middle. The wording is from SU also as well as the border punch. The ribbon I added is just from my stash.

Now this is another one of the adorable stamps from Whiff of Joy Stamp Kit!!! Oh I so loved coloring this one I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers which was made by Claudia, wonderful dear. I colored this gorgeous image in with my copic's and spica glitter pens. I colored the strawberrys and cut them out and mounted them ontop of where my ribbon met. I used the circle nestibilites and the wording is also from the Whiff of Joy stamp kit.

Well I really am sorry I didn't get to everyone's blog this weekend to visit. I did manage to make it to a few but just needed to have some me time and needed to have some crafting time and enjoy my new stamps I had gotten. Well thank you all for stopping bye and have a great evening. Big hugs
