Seize the Birthday #237-1 & NBUS #38

One card for two challenges: STB & NBUS

This is a new Stamp, Stencil, die kit from Altenew, called Fragrant Florals
I saw a video from Jennifer McGuire on it and had to have it.  Loved how she did the flowers in different colors.  Of course, it was OOS when I went to get it, but I put my name on the list and ordered as soon as it came back in stock.
The butterfly is another one from my stash of Small Butterflies by Pinkfresh. Sentiment is from Gina K.'s Sentimental Bouquet.
Feels good to enter some challenges.

Thanks for stopping by.

Seize the Birthday #237

I was able to create a couple of cards for STB 
My favorite cards are butterflies and flowers so couldn't pass up a chance to enter this challenge using Pinkfresh's Small Butterflies, stamp and stencil set with Gina K Colors. The flowers are a Pinkfresh stencil also, but I don't know the name of it.  It belongs to Colleen, my BFF.
Underneath, I have an AI piece that I had in my stash.  In fact, all of these were in my stash. 
The bling is from Pretty Pink Posh
Sentiment is from Gina K.'s Sentimental Bouquet.

And I couldn't resist these colors.

Used Gina K's Fearless Joy with her inks.
Sentiment is from Gina's Wild Blossom set

Triplets turning 4 on their next birthday.

Justin's Card 

Connor's Card

Anna's Card

Just a quick little update on the Triplets.  This month on the 26th, the Triplets will be 4.  Can you believe that?
They are such a joy and so much fun.  They are like little miniature people. 
Anna loves to sit with the adults and carry-on conversations with them which she does quite well.
Their vocabulary is unbelievable, and they use it in the correct context, too.
The other day Connor and Anna were doing a painting game on the computer, and they started talking about camouflage. Ramie said they had been talking about that just the day before.  Amazing what these little ones learn.  
These pictures are a little serious, because I was trying to get without them making funny faces or smiling with that goofy smile that kids do when you tell them to SMILE.
Brad and Ramie are on a much-needed vacation by themselves.  They are in San Francisco for the week.  The babies (we still call them that) are in Seattle staying with her sister who has two boys 9 & 5.
Avery is staying with us as she has soccer.  We are all missing the little ones.  Not sure we have gone that long without seeing them.
I really liked how these cards turned out so thought I would share.
Anna is really into Unicorns; Justin likes sharks and Connor dinosaurs.
The wobbles are a little big, but I know they are going to love them.  Lol
We are having the craziest weather.  Last week we had two days of summer weather.  One day was 70 and the next was 78.  Today it is about 47 and tomorrow it is supposed to snow.  What???  We do not usually have fluctuations like that in our weather.
Hope you enjoyed my post.
