Clean Up Clean Up Everybody Clean Up!

Does anyone else know this song? Well... we sing it at our house quiet a bit. Carver seems to respond to it so ... whatever works!

I am in the mood to clean out my 'to post' basket! I have several... none of which are my most fav cards that I ever made but I am sure I will have plenty more to post soon. You know how it goes... you have 'on' days and 'off ' days! Who knows... one of these days I might actually make a card for a challenge or something!

But... for now... I am going to post all of these cards over the next few days just so I can put them away! Now... some of them I do like quite a bit but the pictures of them are not the best. I am just too lazy to retake them in better lighting! :)

Here we go...

Hope you have all had a great Monday! Mine started out slow but I was fairly productive. I had stamp class tonight and it was good to get out for a while. However... I missed Carver's first swimming lesson so I wasn't real happy about that. I will get to take him two more times this week so... that will be good! He had a blast. Michael's cousin was a lifeguard and is giving Carver lessons over the next couple of weeks. I was worried about how he would do but he loves Bryson and it isn't his mom and dad trying to teach him so ... he did great! So they tell me! :)

Hope you have a great Tuesday!

Peace and Love!

Sure do know that song! Still sing it to my 14 y.o. Daughter which annoys her To no end. :-). I like the simpleness of you cards. They are all great and will be appreciated by future owners.

LOOOOOVE that glitter on the Ippity stamp--so fun! I also love that hat card--that is super fun! Love your style--so simple but with lots of POW! {Sounds weird--but I sit here and say---"That is soooooooooo amazing! And simple! POW!" see where I get that?! LOVE IT!}

Oh I sure do know that song, but please do share your tricks on getting your son to comply when you sing it! Doesn't seem to work in the Baker household. One that does work though is "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit"-ever heard of that one? Love the array of cards here, your choice of colors is amazing on each one which is one reason why I think your style works so well for you. Well, that's my opinion anyway...

...everybody do your share! This song is played at church from when they are babies in there nursery classes so my kids work well with it! We also play it at the end of our stay and play at church too and watch as the kids clean up! I love it! Did you know there are two tunes to it? The second has similar words. Love all these cards! Cute! I think y fav is the balloon!

Classic Kelley cards -- love them all. I'm especially attracted to the lamp card... the colors, the paper piecing, the simplicity of design, the rhinestone atop the shade... perfect.
Sorry you had to miss Carver's first swim lesson, but am glad he did well. In my experience, kids often do better when mom isn't around. Sad, but true. (And a real bummer as a mom!)
