Happy Fall !!

Hope you guys had a wonderful WCMD yesterday! I had a blast! Courtney came over and we crafted and chit chatted for several hours! So nice to just have some girl time doing what I love best... making cards!!

I was on my way to take Carver to my parents house and I was exceeding the speed limit just a tiny bit in a place known for cops to sit! I kept thinking to myself, "I bet there will be more cops out since it is a holiday"!! Ha!! How funny is that! I promise you... it felt to me, all day long, like it was an actual holiday! :) I guess that is because it was in my heart!! :) hee hee

So this is a card that I made while Courtney was over! I made it for the Unity challenge. The challenge is to use Polka Dots and Plaid! So... this is what I came up with! I spent entirely too much time on this card! Anyway... I like it pretty well so I guess that is ok!

So... I said that Carver went to my parents house for a while (Thanks Mom and Dad!!). Well.... when I got there to pick him up around 6pm, it was obvious from his attitude that he hadn't napped! :) Which I expected so... that was fine! So... Carver fell asleep in the car on the way home. I couldn't get him to wake up when we got home. He only woke up enough to say that he wanted to get in his bed.... which he never does! So... I decide to put him in his bed and pray he sleeps the rest of the night! Well... by around 9pm, I was thinking he was really going to sleep all night... woo hoo! Well... shortly after 9pm, Carver woke up and started screaming, "Mommy come get me. I am up!" Long story long.... he didn't go back to bed until almost 11pm and then it took him a while to go to sleep! I knew it was too good to be true!! :)

Well... I am outta here!! Have a great one and thanks for stopping by!!

Peace and Love!!

No, no: peace and love to you! You need it more! {Poor baby!} I'm glad you guys had fun, that part sounded great! But an un-napped baby can cause all kinds of havoc! Hope you get him re-programmed tomorrow! {giggle} I felt like today was a holiday, too! Will have to REALLY work on getting the rest of the world to play along! ADORABLE CARD, you crazy bird! {I almost forgot!} SO cute I want to carve it and make seeds! Seriously: AAAAAA-dorable! Great going, talented one!

Hmmmm....that's odd! You think Carver would've had a hard time falling asleep on WCMD Eve, hoping to get a peak at the Card Making Fairy :) Maybe he'll sleep in this morning :)

Love the layout here! Especially that twine - just perfect :) glad you & Courtney had a great day...hopin' to get to the 'kitchen sink' today :)

Love this card!! I have that distressed daots bkgrnd and haven't used it yet. That story about the cop is too funny. Just think if you DID get pulled over and he said "And where are you off to in such a hurry on WCM day?!!!" Have a fab Sunday, hope Carver is back on schedule.

Adorable card!!

That's funny--about the holiday! I'm impressed you thought it was a holiday without it being one...I usually am the one trying to check the mailbox on Labor Day, forgetting it's a holiday!

This card is calling my name! You made it for me, right? Haha! I LOVE it! I'm such a fall lover!! It sounds like you and Courtney had a great day together yesterday. How fun! I'm hoping to join your challenge soon. I have the perfect piece of mail to inspire me.

This card is super cute, Kelley! I love your pumpkin, and who doesn't love dots and plaid? :D

Vanessa said...

This card is another masterpiece, Kelley! Love every detail on it! Perfect!! Our little ones always know how to keep us entertained! Oh, I wish I had a dear friend with the same passion for cardmaking- you must have had a fab time!

Hugs,
Vanessa

I totally hate trying to make the "wake them up after only a tiny little nap or pray they fall asleep for the entire night" call. It always appears that you can't really win either way.

BTW-- love the card! The pumpkin is especially cute!
