Sunday Evening Post

Whew! What a weekend! It seems like we've hardly been home....

We had our Taekwondo Club Championship yesterday in Winnipeg and I'm so proud of how well my kids did! They each brought home a medal (for which I'm super happy for them!), but more than how well they competed, I'm so proud of the great attitudes they had and what a fabulous job they did volunteering. All three volunteered as runners, Sage & Jonah volunteered as time keepers and Austin corner judged sparring and got to referee as well. They were all just so on task and helpful.... it made me very proud!

So, this morning, before church, I made some cards to tell them this. For each one, I used Crate Paper patterned paper and journaling cards/tags, my PTI Wonderful Words Additions stamp set and this week's Make It Monday: Embossed Alpha Die Cuts.

Here's the one I made Austin. I added some PTI cardstock (vintage cream, ocean tides) and button twine. I used my PTI modern uppercase alphabet dies with black cardstock and heat embossed them-- it gave them a nice, glossy finish.

For Sage's card, I diecut the Wonderful Words "you" die and heat embossed it. I also added some Crate Paper chipboard flowers.

And here's Jonah's card. I used the same dies that I used on Austin's card, but this time in harvest gold.

When I gave Jonah is card and he read it, he said it brought tears to his eyes! So sweet!

I also managed to make a quick layout Friday evening, also using this week's Make It Monday: Embossed Alpha Die Cuts with my Wonderful Words stamps and die. I used My Mind's Eye patterned paper, a Crate Paper sticker (for the date) and PTI buttons and twine.

I heat embossed the stamped portion of my title with white embossing powder and the diecut portion with clear embossing powder.

Well, I feel as if I could use a few days off to rest from my weekend, how about you?

Thanks for looking!
