I gave them such tight squeezes this morning :(((

but I am proud of them both...they did awesome

Whiff of Joy #47

is teal & orange

not my usual colors fer sure

but hey why not

so here is my take

thanks for comin by

see ya soon

tidbit from the first day of school
zack said this morning "I think I should stay home from school cause I'm gonna miss you mom" aaahhh my sweet boy he slays me...then Nick added "I should stay home too mom" I asked him if he would miss me, he replied "well I don't wanna miss Ben 10" lol...they both kill me :)))

a card for Mrs. W

too funny I get to school to drop the boys off on their first day and Mrs. W comes up to me "I need a 50th birthday card for saturday!!!" lol "oh & how was your summer?"
so I came home & made up this card before I go to pick up the kids for lunch
thanks for looking

a worthy cause

I will be sendin this one out tomorrow

if you girls get a chance I read this story on the blog of the creator of whiff of joy stamps

it reads:

My friend Erin (Scrap, Stamp and be Merry) told me about a terrible accident which happened to her 13 year old neighbor Paige. She lost her arm in a boating accident recently and is now recovering in the hospital. She and her family are going through a very hard time and my heart is suffering with them. Erin is calling for help to cheer Paige up (a positive mood is the best help during recovery). And what would be better than flooding her hospital room with cards from all over the world? I already got my card ready and will post it on monday. You can read all the details on Erin's blog. It would be great if some of you would join in and send a card to Paige:
Paige Welch at Boston Children's Hospital,
300 Longwood Ave.,
Boston, MA 02115,
United States
If you have time...a child is in need :)
