Happy Monday, I hope that you all had a great weekend. We had a pretty busy weekend over here at the Toll House, from play dates, to build a bear birthday parties to my clear notebook class on Sunday, our weekend just flew on by. My mom emailed me last week and asked me to whip up a quick just because card for her also followed by and can I pick up after work. Uh OK that doesn't give me much time. At the time I was watching my 2 year old as most us know that is a full time job {which I absolutely love, I'm not complaining} and working on baby shower invites. So because I love my mom I dropped everything for her and tried to whip up a quick card..... um it took a bit longer than I planned. So for those of you that have been pregnant you will totally understand. So to give you an idea my stamp room is upstairs but Caleb was playing downstairs with his trains so I went upstairs to grab what needed for my quick card, I came downstairs and started to work on my card when I realized not once but at least 5 times that I forgot something and had to go back upstairs to get what I needed. BOY was that a workout! But can you say Preggo brain? At least that's what I call it. I think I took most of my time making tracks up and down the stairs than creating. LOL =D So back to my card, I took Mary Fish's layout idea and changed it around a bit but my inspiration came from her. I love that lady she does such awesome work and is very inspiring. Gotta run lots to do, I hope that you have a Happy Monday!

Guest Stampers

Happy Sunday All, Here are my guest stampers. Caleb recieved these cards for his birthday playdate that we had on Friday, although his birthday isnt for another week we decided to get together with his friends a little earlier. These cards all came from fellow demonstrators so it was fun and exciting for us to just look and compare cards.

Happy Birthday SAMMIE!

Happy Birthday Sammie, my niece Sammie turned 3 on Thursday but today is her birthday party. The theme is build a bear so I decided to make her birthday card based on her theme. I apologize for the picture quality it not very crisp for some reason. Hmm, it's probably operator error. =D I had a bit of a struggle this time around with my water coloring, so I think I'm going to have to work on that a bit more. I have to run though I'm off to get ready to go build a bear this should be a lot of fun for all of the kids and us BIG kids too!
