Hopefully this will work. I am new to trying to upload videos, but I need to try and get this up because it made me smile. Yesterday Ethan did not have school due to teacher conferences (which he got a good review at! Yipee!) So we went out for lunch and on the way home Seth fell asleep. Since it was almost time for the bus to come Ethan chose to play outside while Seth & I waited in the car. I couldn't help smiling when I looked out the car window and saw something like this:
I think he needs to be on a moving poster with the title of perseverance. He had so much fun even though he fell about 1000 times!
I am really excited by how this turned out. I am loving my new Sweet Stems set! Once again the layering does not show properly in the card. The flowers are stamped on watercolor paper and layered with Cameo Coral and Old Olive panels. The Very Vanilla base is stamped with the leaves from the Embrace Life set. The middle panel is stamped with an Itty Bitty Background stamp and layered on a Chocolate Chip panel.
Hope you like it.

Maggie had a grand time. Unfortunately, I have no good pictures because she was mostly with her friends and their parents would rather not have their pictures on the internet.
The kids can't wait for March when the Girl Scouts have their skate night. I think they will have more confidence because we just went.

These are my final versions. I like the overall look of the card on the left better, but I do like how the flowers turned out when I colored the stamp with my SU markers.
