Merry Monday

Hope everyone had a restful weekend!  Here in Colorado, we have been teased with summer-like temps all last week, and now it's cold again.  I hope the weather will perk back up for the kids' spring break next week.(might go crazy if we're all stuck in the house together for a week!)

I finally finished "The Hunger Games"!  It took me a while to get into it, but when I did it went pretty quick.  Now my friend Kim can stop stressing because I am all set to see the movie this weekend! ;p  I like going to the movies with her in the middle of a school day, so relaxing.  It helps that we have almost the exact same taste in EVERYTHING!  Which leads me to stamping-

 This is my little Glimmer Bean that finally got her first inking!

She is one of the new additions at The Greeting Farm, and boy is she popular!!  I made this card for the TGF Splitcoast Stampers challenge this past Saturday. 

The challenge this week is this sketch-

I have had this ladybug/butterfly paper for a while and finally put it to use. (I think it was Bella Blvd)  Using pink, red, and orange was a fun color combo!  I love her and her cute hair and belly!

I felt like I should have more to post, but the stuff I actually got accomplished this weekend was for my little Maddie.  She sat in my craft room with me all day Saturday and did all sorts of amazing things!  I envied her ability to not over-think every little color she used, and what she was going to make with her images.  She wanted me to help her make a bunch of the corner bookmarks so she could give some to her friends.  She really is a sweet kid.(not posting any pics of her stuff this time, she gets very embarrassed.)
