Sun has been shining and I have been missing in action.  Between feeding babies, soccer practices and trying to get some work done in the yard I have been one busy momma -- but I am finally making some progress and it really makes me happy!  I have to get the yard up to par before the real Arizona heat arrives because it is WAY too hot to do anything then!
I am working on planting a small garden this year, and I still need to re-stain the playhouse/swing set.  That said, you will probably only see me on Tuesdays for the month of May as I get the outside stuff done . . . but fear not, soccer is done in June and it is too hot to work outside then.  I'll be back!  *insert evil laugh here*

I was SO excited to hear that the sketches for the month of May are created by  the one, the only Jen Del Muro!  I have been a HUGE fan of her awesome work and sketches!  Hope you will take a couple minutes to go check out her blog and say hello!  

Okay, now I know you are thinking - WHAT?  It's Mothers Day this weekend - why the heck is she doing a Fathers Day card -- but here is why 1)  I know you are all super on top of things and already have your Mothers Day cards for your mom, sister, inlaws, etc. already prepared and 2)  Fathers Day is really not that far away and I thought this could serve as a reminder.  You can pick up this adorable set called "Tough Guy" at Skipping Stones Design and if you go order right now, I bet Heather would have it to you in plenty of time to make some cute cards for your dad, grandpa, son, uncle, brother, or even grandson (all of those words are included in this set -- go see, it is the perfect guy set!)  

Here is the sketch:

Hope you have a lovely Tuesday and take a little time for yourself to stamp!  You deserve it!  And don't miss this -- back by popular demand

Nice card with a great sketch! What do you have planted in your garden? I'm a couple hours away from you and we have romaine lettuce like crazy right now!

Hi Amanda,

I love your blog. I'm new to the whole blogging life and I can see that it is going to become time consuming. Not the posting but the reading of all the other blogs! :) I can't believe how much your kids have grown up, wow! I love the sketch designs you are posting. I have been dusting off my stamp sets lately, it's been fun. I'm going to go stamp right now and MAYBE I'll try out this new template. :)
