Can I just mention quickly how much I adore the May Artful Delight Monthly Card Kit? I was like a kid in a candy store when I opened the package to find all the goodies inside. From the wonderful solid paper, to the patterned paper, cute embellishments and fun stamp set. There is A LOT of goodies included in kit and it will probably take me until next May to use it all up! I still can't believe I'm on this team and get to experience and showcase all the goodies included in the monthly kits.
Today I made a fun and cute, along with clean and simple card, that pretty much features all items from the kit. The pretty, pink Bazzill textured cardstock, the fun butterfly from Paper Smooches Pretty Momma stamp set, the really cool patterned paper from Crate Paper and Echo Park, along with a button from Crate Paper. Love that I can throw in items from my own stash too to help the card along, as in the banner die and trio window die.

I wrote this the other day and decided it was time to share it with you, my wonderful and dear readers (that I've never met in person but am so thankful to call friends). If you read my last post, you might have know I've been struggling lately with time management, and writing the following down has really put a perspective on things.
Today I witnessed something that I wish I took the time to see more of... Today I saw my little guy wiggle his little bottom in the cutest of cutest ways and yell at the top of his lungs that he was ready. I wondered what he was ready for, what made him dance with joy? And at that particular moment his eyes got big with anticipation as the ball my oldest threw up and across the roof of our house came down towards him. And then I heard him shout with joy to his brother that he caught it. Dear Blog, why oh why have I missed so many triumphs such as this? Dear Blog, somehow I've taken for granted some of the good years in my dog. I could have been throwing him a ball instead of spending time with you. Now, he can hardly walk and you, well, you are still here and as chipper as can be. I love you dearly but I think it is time for us to spend less time together. I have two little loves that I love even more than you, I have a puppy at heart that needs some love instead of you. Don't fret, my dear Blog-we will still see much of each other I'm sure, on the weekends or late evenings, perhaps...
