Yellow Daisies

This is a card that I made for a friend of mine and I wanted it to be cheerful and bright, so I used bright sunny colors! I used the Upsy Daisy stamp set and stamped it in Summer Sun (my favorite yellow) then popped dotted the main image after punching a slot for the ribbon, then used the Sanded back ground stamp on the panel behind the daisies, added three brads and I was done.

Now that two of my kids are back at school, I've been cleaning like crazy the last two days. Its hard to keep the house really clean during the summer when all of them are home all day long, snacking, tracking in, leaving things laying around. Don't get me wrong, I did clean this summer, but its kind of like that old say - Cleaning with kids is like shoveling the snow while its still snowing, lol. Tuesday I felt so domestic, I vacuumed, dusted, changed sheets, did laundry, cleaned the kitchen, mopped the floors and baked two loafs of banana bread with Connors help. It was a good day! Even though this sounds like I'm complaining about my kids, the truth is that some day I'll miss all the mess, noise and things laying around when all of my kids are grown and move out of the house.
