Good Wednesday morning!  It has been almost a week since my last post as life has been very busy and hectic.  Both my boys played in a soccer tournament this past weekend, so we had 8 games over 3 days plus is was over 90 degrees all weekend, which made it even more exhausting.  This week the boys have soccer try outs, which started last night and are also tonight and Thursday.  Then we have end of year tournament this weekend.  So, I’m going to be pretty busy until Sunday. 

I love being busy, but honestly, I am ready for time to myself.  Besides for all of the above, the kids are getting ready to finish school, my older son (11) is starting middle school in the fall, so I had a meeting for that last night, plus he has a lot of end of elementary/graduation activities going on.  My oldest will be turning 13 June 5 and has been having some issues at school and socially due to her Autism – any transitions are always difficult for herSad smile  My youngest (7) has some school projects that require adult supervision and time.  And, I have been dealing with some (hopefully minor) health issues.  Well, sorry to bore you all, but that’s pretty much a summary of the past couple weeks and this week.  I am planning on doing some major crafting today!!

I want to share my new creation using “Charming Flowers” digi stamp from SOFTPENCIL STUDIOS SHOP.   You can find all Elizabeth has to offer – stickers, rub ons, digi stamps, clear stamps and MORE! – by visiting the SOFTPENCIL STUDIOS SHOP.   I hope you will also check out the SOFTPENCIL BLOG and see all the wonderful creations from the other DT members.

For my card, I have used papers from Bella Blvd. and Bazzill.  Used Lifestyle Crafts folder for embossing, all shapes cut with Nesties.  Butterfly and ribbon are recycled from previous cards that I was no longer fond of.  I sure hope you like it and that you will check out SOFTPENCIL STUDIOS BLOG and SOFTPENCIL STUDIOS SHOPSmile
