So Busted!

My kindergartner came home from school the other day. As usual I went through his backpack and recycled items that I had looked over. A few hours later he asked me where his sun picture was. Oh, honey, I think it's in the recycle bin. He dug through the bin and proceeded to pull out 5 or so of his papers. He gave me the stink eye and said, "Mommy, would you like it if you worked really hard on something and I threw it away." "No, honey, I wouldn't," I said. "Well, then don't throw mine away!" I promptly got a folder for him to put his schoolwork in from here on out. Bad Mommy!

Side view. Sorry about the quality. It was late at night. I wanted you to be able to see the dimension, though.
The stamp set is from Stampin' UP! My mom owns it and I don't have a catalog right now so I can't tell you the name. The paper is from one of the stacks that one of us have. Although it's not Stampin' UP! it coordinates very well. We (my mom and I) added a little faux stitching because it needed just a little more something. We used watercolor crayons and an aqua painter to color the image.
I made this card back in July. I haven't done any crafting since then and I am starting to have withdrawals. I hope to fit some crafting in this week. I guess that means I better bust a move and get the house in order today!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great week!


  1. I love the story about his hard work. That's one definitely worth capturing in writing for later. Em had a great time at Mission 34 last night. Thanks for all you do. :)

  2. I'm going to be in the same place when mine find out that most of it goes in the bin! I must remember to "sort" when they're asleep! Beautiful card too!
