Birthday card and Wacky lips!

I have been very busy with organizing my craft room that I haven't really had time to actually craft much.  However, I did have a birthday card to make this week so I thought I'd share it with you.

I literally handed this to the birthday girl's Mom while the glitter was still wet! So the photo isn't the best neither is the coloring but at least it wasn't late! I used a marvelous card sketch Aussie Caz designed for my card sketch challenge this month on Paperthreads.  I just love how you can mix many different patterned papers in this sketch!  The paper is from Echo Park's Springtime line digital version.  The focal point is C C design's Swiss Pixie:  Gretal with glitter glue added to the wings.  I used my Loopy Flowers file and enhanced it with some velvet ribbon leaves and a grungeboard flourish covered in glitter glue.  It's been ages since I used my Copics.  I forgot how much I love coloring!  I really need to find some time to do it more often.  It is sooo stress relieving!

My son's nose always seems to be running.  So we finally got him tested.  He is allergic to Oak, Elm, and Lambs quarter (a nasty weed that runs rampant at our house during the Summer).  But the worse thing that effects him is dust!  So now we are on a mission to declutter the whole house to make it easier to clean and hopefully in turn make it a better environment for Tyler to live in.  Tyler loves to collect all kinds of stuff so he is not happy he will have to pair down the items in his room but hopefully once he starts feeling better he will realize it is for the best.  He will see an allergist next month too so hopefully all this will help him breath easier. 

I know I haven't shared many photos of my kids lately so I thought I'd share one this time.

For Valentine's Day I bought Adoree these wacky lips.  She just loved them!

As you can see there is a lollipop attached to them.  She ate all of the lollipop of course!  Then there was a little stuck on the lips yet so she took it upon herself to clean off every last bit of the lollipop in the sink so she could save the lips!  She just loves these silly lips!

Okay I've gotta get back to cleaning!  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!
