Chase those dreams....

Right now, it is April Vacation and my boys are home for the week.  With a nearly 10 year old and a nearly 7 year old, I'm doing more chasing of small boys than chasing of my dreams.  Truth be told, I'm chasing all their dreams, or working my hardest this week to make theirs come true.  Then again, that's what its all about....

I think I'll need a vacation from our vacation as usual, a big breath as they all head back to school and work.  Don't get me wrong, I love spending time with them while they're home, but ....yikes.... I'm exhausted from being on Mom Duty all week!  

I got to sneak in some crafty time to prepare a sample for this week's My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club sketch. Be sure to play along each week for YOUR chance at a prize!  This sketch is perfect for some stamping and coloring, but I chose the Vertical Greetings for a quick(er) card. I can hardly believe I used colored ink myself. I never seem to have a match, so I was *tickled* that this worked out.  
A little patterned paper embellie with the Butterflies Die-namics, and of course a polka dotted fishtail thanks to my beloved STAX Fishtail Flags.  Scalloped Trim created with the Simply Scallops Die-namics.  

Patterned paper is from Authentique this collection is called Delightful....  Here is this week's sketch, and I SURE do hope you'll play along!
