FS222: Reddyisco

First of all, Happy Mother's Day to everyone out there! It is the one day that brings my heart sch joy, because I am able to share it with my mom and my kids!

I love my kids more than the world, they were my greatest gift ever and I am so proud to be their mom. They bring my heart joy, laughter and completeness! Each and every child is so different than the other, and they are so kind, loving and wonderful to me and Todd.

Here we were last weekend at Victoria Joan's First Communion:

In the Lutheran church, the rite of first communion takes place in the 5th grade. Next weekend, Karen will be confirmed. It has been a busy May for us so far! This is our relaxing weekend. We had a swim meet Saturday morning (the older five swim competitively!) and swam really well. It was heartwarming to see Karen, Victoria and Sophie on a relay (with another swimmer on the team). It brought a tear to my eye to see the girls crowd on the edge of the pool cheering on their brother! Moments like that I cherish!

On to this week's featured stamper! This week's featured stamper is Reddyisco (Jo). The card I found was this rich, clean card {1432} with a big red bow! Love it! The textures were awesome. I changed the colors, stamp set and the main cuttlebug folder. Instead of a bow, I used a button with a bakers twine bow. The stamp set I used is Springtime Doodles from Papertrey Ink. The cuttlebug folders (birds & swirls and swiss dots).

Stamps: Springtime doodles (papertrey ink)
Paper: white, hawaiian shores
Ink: black
Misc: Hawaiian shores polka dot ribbon, Hawaiian shores button, bakers twine (black), cuttlebug (swiss dots and birds & swirls), oval punch

Enjoy every single moment of today!!!!!!
