wooo hoo for Thursday!

Happy Thursday! Today Unity is hosting chatting and bingo over in the Unity forums today!!
One week until Halloween and I need to get my fix in still for halloween cards...maybe a few after will be ok?? ;)

My card uses birdie inspiration- one of my most fave sets! the paper is Sasafrass Lass- pretty basic and straight forward. I hear there might be sales today also....
make sure to head over and play BINGO!

Today is my busy day-as busy as a stay at home mommy can get... I help in one of the kids classes, then a pta meeting, (b-o-r-i-n-g!) (Sorry if any of you are reading this!!!) and then off to buy food for the always hungry children. I swear I could buy a new car if i got a nickel for every time i heard- "I'm hungry"! Any one else have kids that think eating is a sporting event they place in?

enjoy! Pin It Now!

I love this sentiment...great card! With two boys, I think food is quickly becoming one of our biggest expenses...I am worried the teenage years will leave us broke! :)

A sporting event? Definitely a competition. My kids go so far as to split every item that comes into the house. Heaven forbid I might actually want something to eat myself. It's usually gone. Just wait 'til yours are teenagers!
Love that set, too. Pretty card!

Jacqueline said...

Great card AJ!!

My little ones are always asking for food!! They are so skinny I dont know where it all goes!! They eat me out of house and home :)

Tracy said...

LOL! Never quite thought of the way my children eat as a sporting event - but if I did, they would certainly win first prize in the "snack" event! I think I say 100 times a day - it is a snack, not a meal!

love your card, the colors look great together.

Your day sounds like mine...just got home after time at the school. Now it is 'clean house' time...ICK. I don't get the 'I'm hungry' from my dd, but I do get 'can I watch TV?'....I would hire a housekeeper with all the nickels I make from that one..hee hee! Love your bright card!

Cute card!! When our kids were all home we used to go to a "day old" bread store and by big bags of bread sticks. Heat them with butter and coarse salt or garlic salt on top. Cheap way to fill them up!!
