just a little {slow}

Post-kids, that's feels like the story of my life....

My personal feeling is that with the birth of each child, moms should grow an extra arm {and perhaps some extra brains too}.  I think that would make all the difference.  Unfortunately God must not see it the same way, thus the perpetual runnin'-to-catch-up mode that I'm in.  I'm not at all suggesting that it's His fault...I'm just sayin'....

So, this birthday card here goes right along with that theme:


There's actually quite a bit of glitter on this {the hearts, the snail's shell and antennae, the grass blades, and even the button's got some glitter on it --but I can't take credit for that...it came that way...thanks, Cammie!}, though it was getting dark outside when I took this picture, so you really can't see it. ;(  

Oh, I used Card Patterns Sketch 48 --very fun sketch!

And last but not least, I also wanted to say thank you to so many of you for leaving me such sweet comments recently.  And to those of you who are new to subscribing or Following my blog, Welcome!  I don't post every day {more like once or twice a week...the title of this post is actually very fitting for me -lol}, but whenever you do visit, I hope you'll enjoy what you find here.  ;)

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
