Bad Blogger, No Mojo

Well, I have not been able to stamp for quite some time. I just haven't had it in me. Have you ever had that happen before? Today I decided enough was enough. I grabbed the current sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You and I just started working. I've been dying to try the sewing on pleated ribbon look I've been seeing so much lately. I have no idea if this works or not, but AT LEAST I STAMPED SOMETHING!!! :-) Yay me!!!



I used Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip and Riding Hood Red as my color combo, with various patterned paper in those colors. The stamp set is "Great Friend" and is in the current mini. If you'd like more info on any of the products I used or would like to order them, please drop me a line at stampmaniac at gmail dot com!

Earlier today while trying to get the little guy to help me clean the room up (read this as Mom was crawling all over the floor, singing "clean up, clean up, everybody clean up," and putting a zillion mega-blocks and books away) this is what the smart little one decided to do:


He had a great view of his mom crawling all over the room, didn't he? :-) And luckily, he let me snap a pic before he moved.

Adorable card! The colors are awesome!!! Great picture too! My dd, she's 5, and man, I cannot get her to clean unless I'm right on her back. We did the clean up song too when she was little. CUTE!

Lovely card, congrats on making the fab 5, love the ribbon, nice colours too! great take on the sketch!
kids are cute lol my 4yr old daughter is pretty good packer-away, we have a counting race to see if we can pack everything up before we get to 20 (unless its a bigger mess we count longer) or if its books on the floor we count books as she stacks them back up.
