Happy Tuesday! The sun is shining and I'm ready to go into my room and create something! Today I wanted to share I card I did for the CAC (create-a-card) yahoo group. I participate on their sketch team and for the last few weeks haven't been able to play. This week I was all ready. I decided to use a stamp from my stash that I'd never used before! I present to you CAKEABELLA:

It's really a fun sketch and I can see myself using it again. I went with the bright summer colors - doesn't it just scream HAPPY?!?! Recognize the pattern paper? It's from that KI stack that fell into my arms at Hobby Lobby! I like that I went with pink/red top and orange pants. I find myself when coloring trying to be "proper" but in the world of card making anything goes!!

Thank you for all the wonderful birthday comments and emails that I received yesterday! It was so fun to read them all and Abby got a real kick listening to the comments about her card!

Hope you have a great day and you are able to enjoy some sunshine. Today is Abby's last regular day of preschool and tonight she has T-ball practice. Did I mention that she was pretty darn good? Funny thing - she's a lefty. For soccer she's one of the few left footed kickers and she writes left handed. BUT for T-ball - all righty! We practiced this weekend and I had her use her left and she didn't do so hot. Use the right and she really throws the ball and her batting is great! I'll try and take some pictures cause all the kids are so cute at this age - you can see the determination on their faces as they bat and run for the ball.

Thanks for stopping by!!
