Things are Jumping around here....

Although I am not creating too much these days, I do have a few more cards to post from the last Gina K release and then I have a few things created to show you next week for the My Favorite Things release.

I will be posting blog candy tomorrow for 100,000 hits....my dh took my digital camera today to take some pictures of our new house so I can't do it today.

A few updates on family life: My sweet daughter turns 12 on Friday. The fish is still alive. My other sweet daughter turns 3 next week. The fish is still alive. My husband graduates residency next week. The fish is still alive. My son graduates Pre-school next week. The fish is still alive. Add that all in with getting ready to move--and yep....I would say things are jumping around here....

And speaking of jumping.......This card features the new set from Melanie--Jumping for Joy. I love the adorable images in this set. For this card I created a rounded side opening using my Creative Memories cutting system. (The striped paper is on the inside of the card!) The motion of the juggling balls is conveyed with the paper piercing.

Materials used: Jumping for Joy (Gina K Designs); ink-brilliance black, pumpkin pie (SU!); cardstock-white, green; SU! Designer paper pack; paper piercing tool (SU!); Copic markers; ribbon (Oriental Trading); Creative Memories cutting system.

Thanks for stopping by!

Glad to see that the fish is still alive... oh, and I'm glad to see that you are surviving all that is going on in your life! It made me tired just reading it! :)

Your card is fantastic!! I love the colors and the paper -- so striking!

Yep, I am tired reading this too. But it did bring back too many memories about replacing fish on the sly... Cute card Carolyn, hope the move is fast and painless.

Awesome card. Sounds like you are super busy with lots of great things! Glad to see you are still jumping in blogland. I'm sure it's crazy, but hopefully you will have some time to keep us posted! You put me over the edge on one of your last posts using the cute little kids beach scene stamp! I had seen it before but didn't jump as fast as I wanted to, then you basically said I had to get it by posting that great card! LOLOL!!

Good Luck and all the best!
