Where There is Love...

Happy Monday!  Life is getting busier again around our house.  Collin's First Communion is coming up on February 12th, Ryan's show choir competitions start this week and his Confirmation classes have started up too.  Obviously that creates a bit more running around for all of us, but I love it.  Tonight, the show choir has a preview night where we get to see their competition routine for the first time.  I can't wait!  This weekend, I'll be heading out of town with a few of the other moms to catch their first competition in West Virginia.  I'm looking forward to seeing how their many hours of practices pays off!

My card today is inspired by the CASE Study Challenge card below.  I looked at this for a while thinking I would go with the flowers as my inspiration, but instead went more with the layout.  Also pulled out my new Verve Text Notes set for the card.

Hope your week gets off to a great start! I'd love to hear what your family is up to this time of year.

Love your card Lynn, especially the sentiment! :) It's amazing how busy we can get with all the family activities yet we can't imagine life without all the extras. Congrats on Collin's Communion and best of luck to Ryan with his competitions. :)

The sentiment nestled just so is the perfect placement for your lovely card. We aren't up too much, the husband is laid off so thankfully he does the dishes so I have more time to craft!

Oh, I love the tumbling hearts with their spots of bling and what a fabulous quote :)
Being a mum is always busy but we wouldn't have it any other way! Sounds like an exciting time coming up for your lads :)

I like how you staggered those hearts down the side and added the gems. It is perfect!
I was recently checking out all of your published work (like that option bar at the top of your blog). Boy, you are one busy lady!

Sorry, wrong account on the last comment (silly alter egos), love how you've been inspired by this card-- makes me go "Why didn't I think of that?"
