Tea Time

Back in February, I took the boys to Ohio to visit family.  One of the highlights of the trip was my sister-in-law invited my sister and me to join her for tea at a local cafe.  It was so nice to be just the girls (thanks, Mom, for watching the kiddos!).  The food was yummy and the cafe was so cozy (I think the high that day was around 9 degrees...yikes!).  It was a perfect afternoon!

To thank my sister-in-law I made her a card.  I just had to use the new Lawn Fawn set Best Pun Ever...it was too perfect with the adorable tea kettle and cups.  I also used the Flirty Frames set as well. 

I used colored pencils with Gamsol to color in the kettle and cups...it's one of my favorite techniques.  I just love the "you're tea-riffic" sentiment!

I am so thankful for the sisters God has given me...I am so blessed!  They are the best!

He Takes After Me...

Yesterday Cole participated in our church's AWANA boat race.  A couple weeks ago, Cole came home with a raw wood boat that he could do whatever he liked to it.  His main goal was to make it stand out...and it did! 

He wasn't overly concerned about making the fastest boat...he just really wanted it to look good.  I am the same way...form always is more important to me than function.  If I don't like the design of something, I am just not going to use it...to a fault!

Cole had a blast and got an award for the "Sparkliest Boat" and he was thrilled! 

I am so thankful for my super creative son!
