Lotsa Crafts...

Hello! As usual, it is almost 11:00 and I am not even close to being in bed! Today was a busy day. I taught lessons this afternoon, and then we had church this evening for National Prayer Day. My kids were exhausted when we got home. Straight to bed. Almost. Here are some recent pictures of them...

What darlings they are... Michelle is now 2 and Micah is 6 months old. He weighs 6 pounds less than Michelle, and his head is 1/4 inch smaller than hers. He's huge! I'm weaning him off of breastmilk and onto whole milk right now, and since he started that (and drinking bottles instead of nursing) he drinks 8 ounces at a time, sleeps at least 6 hours straight (before, 2 hours straight was great), and is growing like crazy!!

Onto crafting....I've been busy the past week, but since I didn't have
my memory stick, I couldn't show you! Well, after much anticipation (I'm sure), here it is...

Both of these cards are for my sister-in-law for her mother-in-law and mother. This first card is for her mother-in-law. It also followed the sketch challenge for Verve's Mojo Monday. You can find the sketch challenge here: I love to do these challenges, and sometimes, you get a chance to win free stuff!
The quote says: You have been my inspiration, my confidante, my frint. Because of you, I've learned to love, to forgive, and to live a life filled with purpose.
Paper: SEI Chocolat
Stamps: Verve Because of You
Ink: Pixie Pink
Other: Gray taffeta ribbon (SU!), markers

Here's my second card, this time for her mother (my mother-in-law).
This card follows the sketch challenge with a twist for the first week of May's Viva La Verve. You can find that challenge here: The challenge was to be inspired by something in your home. Well, this green is the same green in my kitchen (I have an apple kitchen). I have a hard time with three panels like this, but I like the way it turned out. It's hard to see, but I put stickles all over the place for added pizzazz.
Paper: Green, pixie pink
Stamps: Verve Because of You
Ink: Certainly Celery
Other: wide cream ribbon, stickles
Well, that's all for now. I'm pretty excited- my husband comes home tomorrow! Thanks for stopping!
