Start each day with "Whee"!

A couple of weeks ago, I purchased some stamp sets from MFT. This is the last of the bunch and isn't she sweet? I just couldn't resist her and I just love the sweet sentiment. After reading all of your sweet and uplifting birthday comments, I decided to try and have a better attitude and something like this is perfect! Thanks, gals!
ETA: Oh my word...I sure use the word sweet alot! LOL!
I stamped her onto kraft cardstock and colored her with Copic and Prismacolor markers. You have to be really careful when coloring onto kraft cardstock to use more saturated colors. You will find that in time, all of your hard work will just disappear if the colors are too light. I made this mistake with this card, but I still think she looks sweet.

I made an "all about Emma" poster to take to school for her birthday and I used this retired SU! paper. Once I got it out and started working with it, I just knew it needed to be used on a card. In fact, I think it may need to be used to create a banner. I currently have this banner hanging in my entry way, which is perfect for the season, but maybe, just maybe, I will make a new banner for another reason. We shall see!
The kids are off to school, baby is napping, dinner is simmering in the crockpot, the house is "relatively" tidy, what's a girl to do? Maybe a little creative time is in order. I have been sewing some things for Emma which I will share here. She has been quite pleased with my creations.
Football has officially started and that means a lot of crazy, but it is the crazy that I really love. Thanks for fluttering by!
