Happy Valentine's Day ~ First Love!

Happy Valentine's Day!  I wanted to share a card that I made for my daughter Alicia.  This is her first Valentine's Day having a "boyfriend" so I thought these adorable School Boy and School Girl images were perfect, and since they are from Tiddly Inks and this card fits the challenge this week of Love is in the Air, I am entering it in that. I am also entering this in the Moxie Fab World Challenge of Stamping with Markers.

Well, since our last blizzard, it has warmed up quite a bit, but unfortunately that also means sick kids.  Last week I had Trevor and Alicia home 1 day and then Trevor and Tyler home 1 day.  Trevor is still coughing and Tyler will be staying home again tomorrow.....he came home with an earache, and a slight fever, and then started throwing up about an hour later. (and has been at it ever since....poor kid!)  I have been sick since Thursday, but I think I have a sinus infection....I can't wait for all these germs to be gone!  

DI is progressing well for all the kids, but there is still so much for them to do.  This weekend was full of projects....costumes, props, paper mache, painting, practices and then add to that Tennis Lessons, a birthday party and Pinewood Derby cars for Saturday's race (hope no one is sick then) not to mention homework....We are now holding practices for both of my teams 2 times a week, and Tyler has practice 2 times a week as well, so that is definitely keeping us running.
