Ughh.....we had a REALLY dreary weekend here in Colorado. It has been raining for three days and it's been cold and gloomy. Normally I wouldn't mind BUT we had Mattea's 5th birthday party and my nephews 2nd birthday party at my house on Sunday. My hubby and I spent the whole month of May getting the backyard all ready for this party and we ended up inside :( And we had A LOT of people here so we were a little cramped. It ended up being a really fun day and Mattea LOVED all her presents. She is ADDICTED to Edward from the Twilight movies and she was super excited to get both of the first movies and an Edward blanket.Every present she opened was in her words, "JUST WHAT I ALWAYS WANTED", yes she yelled it :) It was super fun to see her so excited about every present.
Today's {Hippity Hop card} must have been inspired by the cold weather...I decided to make a Christmas card using {Season of Joy}.
The layout is this week's {Mojo Monday sketch}. I ended up adding a few extra embellishments than the layout had...I think I'm addicted to ribbon. The card just felt bare without it :)
Thanks for stopping by!
