Only Thursday???

It's Thursday....only Thursday.


How has everyone's week been going?? Mine, alright except for this darn cold or allergy...! Whatever it is, it is kicking my butt!!

Wanted to share a few things today.

First, is something that my DD, April, who is 2 yrs and 8 months, asked me. She is a character!!! :) Never a dull moment with this one---definitely keeps me on my toes! Anyways, she talks, and talks, and talks some more. I never know what she is going to say or ask! Today, she asked me about her belly button:

'Momma, Momma!'
'Yes April?'
'This is my belly button!' (Pointing at her belly button)
'Yes-that's right!'
'Momma, if I lose my belly button, will me bum fall down?'
(Me, stunned,) '! Your belly button can't fall off and your bum is staying where it is.'

Question: Where do these kids get these questions from??? I'm still laughing and shaking my head in disbelief!!

I made some cards this week, 2 actually. This week on Crop Chocolate, the challenge was to make an easel card, with 2 patterned papers, a stamp and some bling.

I never made an easel card--so research I did! LOTS ad LOTS tutorials out there. I think I got it...or so I thought! Confident, I tried.....and tried again. FINALLY succeeded! lol

My oldest nephew's birthday is coming up in a few short weeks. I made this one. I thought I had it down for CC's challenge....BUT! No patterned papers...and I think it's missing a little something something!

It's alright---but I'm not 100% pleased with it! ESPECIALLY since there's no patterned paper for the challenge! D'uh!!

Second card I made is with my SIL, Jen, in mind. Her birthday is also coming up, and I wanted to give her a card. So, I made this one, and am actually quite content with it. It's bright, cheery....great for Jen!

This one is my submission for CC's weekly challenge. You should see some of these submissions!! Fantastic cards---very creative girls over there!

There's something I'm definitely going to be doing this weekend, along with making cards for the blog hop over at CC. And that is making Kathy's delicious looking chocolate cake!! It makes me drool!! lol
She posted her recipe over on her blog---definitely worth a shot!

Anyways, until next time, which will probably be this coming weekend!

Hey Laura,
You should post a warning before a story like that. Maybe something like, "Do Not Read While Drinking Tea" !
You did a great job on your cards. Hope you soon love doing them as much as I do.

Great cards! It does pay to read the rules for the challenges :) I have forgotten about using the specified items, but have usually been able to catch it before I take my picture.
Congrats on your blog!
