Monday, Monday

I know - you're all singing the Mama's and the Papa's song. You just can't help it.

I had a fabulous Saturday! What a wonderful birthday. I went to a Copics class with my friend. That was a lot of fun, I learned a lot, too. I'll be posting what I made later in the week as I finish them and hopefully will be able to play along with some challenges. Anyway, after browsing this beautiful stamp store, my friend treated me to lunch which was quite yummy. After that we took our time getting home, which was pretty easy since this place we went to was an hour and a half away anyway. We stopped so she can buy her family some soft shelled crab. Anyway, then came back here to enjoy dinner with my family.

Sunday on the other hand wasn't so fun. I woke up will a horrible stomachache! I answered a couple of email and then went back to bed and didn't get up until Noon!

First off - its time for another MyGrafico challenge. This week's challenge is to get a bit prehistoric.

I love this brontosaurus - he is so adorable! He's from a great set that can be found here. I created the sun with a QuicKutz dies and I also made up my own sentiment. Be sure to visit the MyGrafico Challenge Blog for all the details and check out what the rest of the design team did.

Next up is my card for Sunshine & Giggles Sunshine Monday card.

Even though Wal-Mart, Target and every other known store imaginable says it's time for back-to-school, me and this boy are hanging on to summer!! I used a great sketch from Sweet Sketch Sunday. Yep, even feeling horrible I had to squeeze in a little stamping time.

I hope you enjoyed both my cards and I hope to see you join in the challenges! Thank you for stopping by, I always look so forward to your visit.

Great job! ;)

I love that brontosaurus!! He is so adorable, I can't stand it. He looks like a stuffed animal Maali used to sleep with while wearing her power rangers pajamas. :D
