Hello Little Prince

Hi everyone and happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was a pretty productive one in a sense that we got lots of house cleaning & laundry done. Hah... fun stuff, right? 

We also tried out new thing. My SIL convinced hubby and I that we need to try out bonsai class. It wasn't quite my thing, but I decided to go ahead and give it a try. Be open minded. LOL, typical me, during the lecture part, I was bored out of my mind. But, the hands on part was pretty fun. We each came home with a start up bonsai that we'll have to maintain as it grows. I don't think I'll be attending the next class.

I like instant gratification, not something that takes months or years to finally see the result. You know... like card  making. ;) But, hey at least we tried it. That's our thing now as couple. To try out new things that we both can enjoy. Hubby is thinking of glass blowing or glass beads making class next. Although that class is not as easily available here in Houston as far as I know.

Anyway, back to instant  gratification. Cards!! I made this sweet card for i {heart} papers.

I really don't know anyone who's expecting a baby boy at the moment, but this cute frog from Lawn Fawn Hello Baby set is too cute to resist. At first, I was going to keep the easel plain, but then remember that I have Lawn Fawn Woodgrain Backdrops that would make it more interesting. I think it would have been too plain if I had kept it plain. Added a bit of shimmer to the crown with Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush and the enamel dots are from Doodlebug Swimming Pool Sprinkles.

I was going to make another card using the easel again, but one spoiled puppy decided it's nap time. So, who am I to argue. :) 

Oh... wow... I just realized that I had published 1200 post on my blog. This post is post number 1201. I had to edit my post to add this as that's pretty surprising to me. Never ever thought that I'd enjoy blogging and never thought it would continue this long. And, most important.... I am thankful for the people I met through my blog. And thank you to all of you that come here regularly and kindly leaving sweet comments & encouragement. I really appreciate you. Hope your week starts off wonderfully!
