Feel Better (For Alexa) and a Card from Brady


Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! We had a fun one! :) D and I went to an 80's themed birthday party on Saturday night. That was really fun! And then on Sunday, we went to a dinner for his sister's birthday which was a good time.

I made this card for my friend Lauren Meader's daughter, Alexa, who is in the hospital with pneumonia. Ok, so Lauren and I aren't super close but the few times I've talked to her over email, she was SUPER nice and she's the first craft blog I started following. I adore that Lauren is constantly writing about her kids and I feel really drawn to Alexa's story. Ok, enough rambling.

I made this card using Taylored Expressions Sketch 129. I decided to try to color the Swiss Pixie to look like Alexa which in my world means she gets brown hair. :) Also, I know I need to stop with the tiny alphabet stickers but I can't. I think I need a 12 step program. And I'm entering this in the Flutter By Challenge, this week you can make a card with any winged thing!

While Parker naps, Brady comes in my office with me and hangs out. He mostly plays computer games on Nick Jr or Playhouse Disney. Sometimes he does puzzles. Then on RARE occasions, he asks to "make something." Last week, we had one of those days. He made a card for Nana and one for Daddy. They look pretty much the same. The image is TGF and the paper is DCWV.

Have a great day everyone! Thanks for stopping by!
