Bit O' Green...

Hey Everyone!

So, my 2 year old crawled out of her crib a couple nights ago.  She did it so stealthily.  I heard her crying (I was 2 rooms away in the office) and I tip-toed over to her room and opened the door super slowly to check in on her.  She's been waking up every couple of nights between 11 and midnight crying but manages to fall back asleep on her down within a couple minutes.  When I peered into her room through the tiny crack in the door way the door swung open and there she was!  She pulled the door open and stood there teary eyed asking to be picked up!  Freaked me out!  I didn't hear a single sound prior to her crying.  No loud bang or creak or rattle...nothing.  And we have hardwood floors so it's not the easiest thing to conceal such sounds.   Growing too fast I tell ya!  Although, her being the absolute monkey of my 3 kids at this age-climbing anything and everything she can-I'm surprised it took her this long to climb out of her crib.  C1 climbed out just before her 1st birthday and C2 climbed out around 18months.  I guess she was due.  :/

Meanwhile, as it turns out, March is quite the busy, busy month for birthdays around here!  Just in time for Simon Says Stamps Newest Challenge: Bit 'O Green.  Here are a couple cards I made that fit this bill (see next post for card 2)!  They are cards I made for my friends' daughters.  The sweeties are little ones in kindergarten so I made them colourful and full of pretty patterns and fun (and a bit 'o green)!

This card came together super fast.  I used scrap paper from my stash and square punched them with a scalloped punch.  Then I cut the squares from each corner to almost the middle and folded down alternating corners.  They are secured to the middle with some glue and a jewel brad.  The stamp is from Hampton Arts and the letters stickers are from Making Memories.  The embossing folder in the back is from Provocraft.

Thanks for dropping by!
