My first day with...

my two kids. They are done with summer school. And I have a break from running them to school everyday. Their ball season is over with as well. My son played t-ball for the month of June and my daughter played softball for a month and half. Glad I no longer have to run them to their games and practices. I loved every minute of it but I'm glad it's over with for this year. Will do it all again next year.

My kids will start their chores for the summer tomorrow. This helps with keeping them from getting to bored. I take them to the pool at least once a week. Which by the way we will be doing a pool party tonight. So I will be taking the kids to that.

Plus on top of all that my husband and I are putting hardwood flooring down ourselves. Which by now I will be glad when it's all done. Still got a long ways to go with it though. It's looking good even if it's in its natural state!

Di Hickman/DCM ~ Amazing Card

June #1 Card Sketch.
Love the sketch and this is my creation using it. I also made the card for
A Not So Sticky Challenge
This week's Little Extra challenge is from an idea of Gillian's - she's always coming up with these fiendish ideas, you know!
"how's about a dare where you can't use any adhesives at all...
You have to put them away...
No tape, no gluesticks, no Xyron, no modpodge.... and all other sticky things....
the only things you can use are things like staples, stitching, brads, eyelets, pins.... that sort of thing to attach all the bits to your card."
Supplies: K&Co pp, Cloud9Designs Ribbon, Black Thread, Zig Ball Pen, Heidi Swapp Ghost Butterfly, Junkitz Paint, Staples, Tim Holtz Black Soot Ink
