I Miss You

Hello there!  Popping in with a card for the current Color Cue Challenge.  I took the lead from Dawn's card and choose to stamp a white background image on kraft and pop the other colors in with the sentiment, twine and button.  Definitely a CASE! 
Ingredients: PTI Kraft Paper; Stampin' Up Cherry Cobbler and White Craft Ink; Twine: The Twinery; Stamps: Wplus9

As I type this, it is 8:30 on Sunday night and three out of my four boys are crashed out!  Marcel and Collin fell asleep on the way home from Nana and PopPop's house and have been asleep since then! Our weekend was extremely busy and filled with lots of family and tons of food.  I feel like I could run for a week non-stop to get rid of all the candy and yummy Easter dinner/brunch!

Here are just a couple of fun shots from Easter morning!  I'll have more pictures to share (but somehow I need to widdle down the 166 pictures I just downloaded).  The boys were up at 6:30 (and I should say "the boys" don't include Ryan.  I sent Marcel to wake him can imagine the teenage groan that came from his room). 

The boys playing with their new legos..

We couldn't go outside for a group shot because of the we tried inside...and started with these faces...
Quickly moving to faces of disgust by Ryan...
And me then losing patience and moving to close up shots of whomever was cooperating at the moment! :)

I love the untucked shirt...
 And his handsome brown eyes...
 And a sweet cuttle with his oldest brother and of course, his new legos...a little grainy, but still sweet.
Happy Easter!


  1. I love the card.. I really want to do more using the white ink. The boys are such boys... really cute...
    Have a great day,

  2. The white butterflies came out great and I love the strip of colours at the top.
    The boys are gorgeous and hilarious! Love the last one of Ryan and Marcel. :)

  3. Love the sentiment treatment on the card! And fun pictures, sure seems to capture your life at the moment!

  4. Love your white butterflies on the kraft and the fab pops of color! Thanks for sharing the photos too, Lynn! They are such typical, wonderful boys! I remember those days when my younger one couldn't wait and wanted to wake up his older brother. Never a dull moment, that's for sure. Can't wait to see more pics from your Easter celebration! Hugs! :)

  5. That is one incredible card, Lynn!! I hadn't seen the new Color Cue but I love those colours. Those photos are so funny! I love their hilarious faces in the second photo and how you wrote about Ryan groaning in his room. LOL

  6. oh, good, the Easter Bunny had some more legos left! lol Adorable how the two youngest are all animated and then as you go down the line, the faces change! LOL What a gorgeous CAS CASE card! I love stamping white/cream on kraft...totally yummy!

  7. Love the card and love the boys! How handsome they look all "dolled" up for Easter! ;)

  8. Great pics, Lynn! LOVE your sweet, little creation, especially, those butterflies, stamped in white, on kraft! Scrumptious! Thanks so much for playing along with our Color Cue this month!
