Congratulations


Hi there!  It's hump day...the middle of a short week!  I hope it is going well for everyone.  I have a quick, fun card for the current PaperSmooches Spark Challenge.  I misted with three different colors of spray mist and then added a banner sentiment with a few colors of twine. Quick and easy!  My kind of card.

I thought I'd also share a couple of pictures from New Year's weekend.  Collin had a very special treat New Year's day night.  He spent the night with my brother and sister-in-law.  He loves to cook and Aunt Cindy is the perfect partner for him!  She's a fabulous cook (she's been a Pampered Chef salesperson for 19 years!) and so he loves to be with her.  When he asked if he could spend the night, "Daddy, I still love you, but I really want to bake with Aunt Cindy."  So sweet.  Here are Cindy, Elizabeth and Collin making yummy peanut butter cookies with Reese cups in the middle.  In the morning, the baking continued with chocolate chip, sprinkle and plain pancakes.  He was in heaven!

That card is amazing Lynn, seriously amazing. Love how you've mixed the mists without blotching them together. Perfect! And the baker man, wow, is his wife going to really love him when he's older!

Hooray for hump day! Love the spray inks on this - a great combination of colors. I am always so intimidated by spray inks because they never seem to get the coverage that I want, but this looks fab!

You are so brave with you mists, Lynn! They never do what I want them to do, and I'm totally up for working with something, but they just don't like to work with me. All that's to say that your card is fabulous! LOVE!

And FUN! Lovin' the smiles :)!
