Oh Boy!



Happy Thursday!  Look who has started karate?  Our two little guys, Collin and Marcel, started karate a couple of weeks ago.  Pat has been taking them to their first few classes and I took them on Tuesday night.  First things first, they look so adorable in their uniforms.  Collin is very focused and loving it.  Marcel is definitely paying attention, but he may be just a bit too young to stick with it!  We'll see :)  So amazing to watch them try new things!
Now onto my card...last month I didn't get to play along with the first challenge over on OnCloud9, but I needed a baby card and decided to play along.  I used one of my first WPlus9 sets to create teh borders on the top and bottom edges. Die cut a label and added a Verve Sentiment.  Such a fun layout.  I could layer all kinds of stamps to create the borders :) 
Hope you have a fabulous Thursday...two more days until the weekend!

those buttons and hearts...oh boy indeed! This card is perfect for the pictures! LOL Marcel looks like a super hero with the streaks of light behind him! Cool! And Collin looks very controlled and peaceful (maybe just really excited inside!). I love how they like to be like their older brothers :) Fabulous role models :)

Lynn, this is so beautiful and makes for a perfect baby card. I love that heart border set and never would have thought to use it on a baby card. The Verve sentiment is adorable and I really love the stamping onto patterned paper. Thanks so much for joining us at Cloud9!

Cute! I like the lined background.

Noelle said...

Oh! They are so cute in their karate gear! :) And obtw, how COOL that they get to ride the bus together. :) Next year we will be back to 2 schools, but for this year, it's 3 different schools, 3 different cities, 3 different kids, and no buses! :( I just keep telling myself it's only the one year, lol ;) I also keep telling Steve to paint my van yellow with the words "school bus" on the side! ;)

Oh how I LOVE baby boy cards! This is darling, love the notebook paper bg and the little blue hearts. Thanks for popping by my blog! still trying to catch up. Have a great weekend, Lynn!
