My son took to his Uncle and Auntie immediately and was soon busy showing off his vocabulary and love of chasing bubbles. The fun continued on Saturday in Midland when my other brother and his wife also joined us at my parents' house. This was quite an event for my family. We don't think we've all been in the same room with each other since our grandfather's funeral at Christmas 2009! We had a great time playing basketball, just like when we were kids, sitting around talking politics and eating great food. Thanks Mom!
So, in the busyness of catching up with family, I, obviously, put cards on the back burner. It was back to business tonight though because my cousin's workshop is coming up quickly on Sunday and I wanted to put together a couple of ideas for it. With Mother's Day now past, I have turned my focus to Father's Day cards. I really like the new "Best Dad Ever" set from the Summer Mini, but my uncle(in-law) and father(in-law), who will be the recipients of these cards, are far from being shirt and tie men. Thanks to my faithful Make and Take friends and their great ideas, I have an alternative to the shirt and tie.

It certainly doesn't fit the mold of "masculine" colours but I like the whimsy that the flowered paper creates and I think that my cousin will have a lot of fun making this and will be proud to give it to her father.
The second card that we'll be doing uses the "Hello Again" stamp set from the 2010-2011 IB&C. I choose to keep this card in the Brights family because the flowers are finally starting to bloom here in southern Ontario and the bright colours along with long needed sunshine are creating beautiful scenes.

I hope that these cards brighten your day and I'm looking forward to making them on Sunday with my cousin and her guests. I've got more cards to post tomorrow, so please come back and visit : )
