Empty Home

Well the kids took off for home this morning, they were going to leave tomorrow but they are telling us that starting tonight it will snow again and we should be getting 6 - 10 inches with the hardest snow in the morning so we suggested they leave a day early so that they don't have to deal with all that snow and bad driving, so yesterday was filled with packing and last minute things we wanted to do.  I sure miss them already.

I found another stamp for the boys in my family, had a rough time with the balloons tried to use some old stuff I had to give it a glossy feel and it didn't work out well.  But once again it had to go in the mail, it looked better once it had all dried., but it didn't really have that glossy look I was going after.

Stampendous -- Balloon kiddo, colored w/markers
Crate paper -- party day paper
Spellbinders -- Curved Rectangles, A2 Distressed edges and Banner ribbons dies
Stampendous -- Birthday assortment (sentiment) stamp

Well I have a lot of work to get done that I put off while the kids were home, so I guess I am off to get that done.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

This card is adorable, Connie, and the balloons look wonderful, too.

Hope your kids travel safely. Stay warm!

HI Connie, I am so sorry I have missed all your holiday cards and reading all about this and that. I am sorry the kids had to leave early I do hope they will arrive him without going through to much trouble with all the snow back there. We are dry as a bone here. I do hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New years I will try to read a few of your post to catch up a bit. Hugs

Big ol' smile when I saw this, Connie! It's super cute! Love the banner and sentiment, and the boy with balloons is darling. I see some of the gloss on the balloons. The house sure seems quiet after everyone leaves, doesn't it?
