This one is so different from what I usually do, I think. I wanted to try a different color combo, as well as use my embosslits. So here you go –
I used the Simple Flower embosslit for the flowers, and cut the leaves from the Birds & Blooms SU! exclusive Sizzlet set. I folded the leaves in half, ran them through the crimper to make "veins", then unfolded them.
The paper is Urban Garden DSP, and the card stock colors are Basic Gray, Baja Breeze, Ruby Red and Kiwi Kiss. I inked the stamp (from One of a Kind) with Ruby Red and Basic Gray markers. Flower centers are Earth Elements brads and the Soho Designer Hardware.
So there you go. Just a quickie for today. I took Wesley to (probably) his last visit to the pediatrician today. It was just for a check up, and he's doing wonderfully. But since he's almost 17, he only has one more visit before he's too old for peds. Jonathan already had his first "adult doctor" check-up, and, of course, he's in great shape too. They both eat well (most of the time) and work out, so their blood pressure, cholesterol, height, weight….it's all good. We're so blessed, because they've always been healthy. I think I can count on one hand the number of times each has been to the doctor for something other than a check-up. They're cute, smart, healthy and very respectful (at least when adults are watching!)…can life get any better for parents? Mike & I really can't take a lot of parenting credit; it's mostly the grace of God! That's not to say, of course, that the boys are "Stepfords." They have their moments, but mostly it's all good. We're incredibly blessed.
So enough "Mom gushing." If the boys ever read this, they'll be so embarrassed. Well, maybe not. They're used to it by now, and they just pretend I've escaped from the asylum but they'll be taking me back later.
Have a great weekend. I won't promise to keep the posting streak up through the weekend, but I'll try.
