Sorry, I've been away....

I'm so sorry everyone, I've been away. Last week was hell week and I am so glad that it is over. Last night I just sat there saying how nice it was to be over, feeling more like a wet noodle than anything.

Doctors appointments, ortho appointments, Mothers day, company from out of town, brithday party planning, SUPRISE birthday party planning..... It's over!!! Then this morning I work up to get hubby off to work and he had to call in. He's had the worst tooth ache and we had to take him to the dentist. My DD is not feeling well and she's not at school today ~ I had a vision of last week all over again! But now everyone is resting, the birds are outside chirping and I'm posting! Ahhh, life's good.

I thought first of all I would share with you pictures of my DD and her "parties".

This was a picture of the get together we had at home on Friday evening. Just family and her BFF Alicia. They wanted to make tie dye shirts to wear. Alicia's birthday is exactly one month later so they thought they'd make shirts. They were a little disappointed when the shirts had too much white on them. I read the directions and did what it said, but I've not made a shirt like that since the 1st grade!!!

Yes, the hat.... When I first moved out here I went to the party store and bought a necklace that had beads and said "It's my Birthday". I make everyone wear it on their day. Well, last year on my birthday someone popped out with this hat. I could not find the necklace so the hat had to be worn. I had to wear it in public, Danielle was lucky!!

Then Satuday night we rented the party room at the bowling alley. They end up there every Saturday anyway. So Alicia and I made the invites and passed them out. We were hoping for a better turn out but the first truck pull of the season started and a lot of people went to that. But that's fine, we had a good time. My BIL was the DJ for the evening. Danielle and him spend time together a lot. He's like a big kid himself and they like the same music so I knew that he'd be a hit! He even dressed the part!

She had a lot of fun, and that's all that matters. Yes, she turned 16, but no car yet! That's something that I'd like to put off as long as I can. It scares me how many accidents happen. So many lives lost. And working in body shops for many years I see what can happen to a vehicle. I know I need to trust her, but it's not her. When I got my licence (I waited til I turned 18) my Father told me to drive defensively. That's what you have to do. And no, I'm not trying to hold on to her as long as I can. Ok, maybe just a little bit.... but I just want her to be safe.

Well yesterday afternoon I made a few thank you cards for Danielle to hand out. I thought she was going to school today, but nope. She's caught some type of bug. But at least the cards were made. That's something that I've always taught her too! You need to send some type of thank you, it's only polite. She could of made her own, but that would of taken MY fun away :)

One of her favorite color combos is pink and anything. Pink and brown, pink and black. Pink, pink pink!So I chose pink and black for this card. It was pretty quick and easy.

The base card is Basic Black. I layered it with DP from the Uptown Girl collection and a length of black grosgrain ribbon. All the stamps used were from the Gift With Purchase stamps from theangelcompany™. I stamped the swirl flourish with Pink Passion ink. I then took my scallop punch and punched a circle from the same collection cs. I stamped the "T" in black ink and punched that out with my 1 3/8" circle punch. I stamped the "T" again with Pink Passion ink on white paper and cut out the word "thanks" and adhered that over the other stamped in black.

For the inside I took a piece of white cs and stamped the swirl inside with Pink Passion ink and glued that down. Now she has a clear piece of cs to write on.

Well, that was not very much creativity for today ~ sorry. But I will get back on track in the net few days!

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share our lives with you!
