April Showers Blog Hop! Day 2!!!!
Before we get too far I want to say if you've stumbled on me because you're a follower or you're new to my blog welcome!!!! I love when people stop by. Now, don't forget the coffee, tea and snacks... oh and those that are following Weight Watchers or any other diet plans there's healthy snacks too. They're all over there on the table, Enjoy!!!! If you'd like to start at the beginning you're welcome to go to Creations With Kathryn and start there. If you've come from Peanut Butter and Jelly Designs then you're in the right place. Welcome to have you!!!!
I have to remember when we're playing in the puddles... not to let him splash me in the winter...you know those days... when things are melting and there's a few puddles. That water is bitter cold, but boy does he love getting Mama with it. I think he likes to hear me scream when the cold water soaks through my pants. I can't complain. I love to splash with him, try and get him wet too. I just love the fun we have together. As many say life is too short. I want to build the best relationship I can with him so that when he needs me later he will feel comfortable in coming back to me to talk to me about anything and know that I will listen to his heart. That I will tell him in truth what is right in God's eyes. I don't want him to fear telling me anything for the fear of getting in trouble by telling me. He's gotten in trouble at school (not by doing anything to someone else); he bit his own arm. We don't have the full story yet. He hasn't shared all of it. I can tell you he's shared enough that we feel we've figured out why he did what he did. I have talked to him and what came out of it in the end was a day of playing in the water. Oh we have such a blast!!!!
I know you didn't need all those details, but I wanted to say that with all those days of playing in the water ~ splashing in the puddles ~ splashing each other while on the boat (or getting splashed by the boat because of waves LOL); it's all so much fun!!!!! This card is made from an 8 1/2 x 11" piece of cardstock folded in half. I then found a piece of decorative paper to go over the top of it. I then cut the boy and dog from A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge. The puddle is from Create A Critter Cricut Cartridge. I then added raindrops and welded them to the puddle. I even sprayed some of my homemade glimmer spray on the water ... it looks really neat. The Tree is from Heritage Cricut Cartridge. I am really enjoying this ~ putting cuts from so many cartridges to make one card. I just love how this came out. I think this one just captures the joy we have when we play in our puddles.
Hope you've had a wonderful visit and you're full now with the coffee and other treats that were available. Now you can go on to Disney Dreamer Designs. Enjoy, you'll love what Melissa has for you. Always a treat to go to her blog. Have fun hopping and enjoy your day!!!!
Have a Happy Cricut Day,
