Ain't No Sunshine When Your Gone

Happy Monday Blogging Buddies!
I hope you all had a GREAT Easter...ate too much chocolate and got to spend lots of family time together!

We did here and it was nephew (8months) came over for his first Easter and he had a blast with my two boys (7 and 10 yrs). We gave him his Easter basket and inside was an egg in the shape of a basketball. There was chocolate in it of course but I think that was done not so much for Calab but for my sister :) By the end of the night he was chasing the basketball around the kitchen with my boys and playing hockey with it. It was so cute and such a blast to watch my boys interact with their baby cousin and play so well with him :)

You tend to forget how fast kids grow up and I know every time I look at either one of my boys, like really look at them they change so much :( Well enough of the mushy stuff here is card I made to enter into a few challenges.

This is a Bugaboo Stamp and she is from the Bugaboo Angels series. Isn't she sweet?!?

She was colored with copics in the following colors:
BG70, G24,G40,YG61,Y17,Y21,YR30,BV00,BV02,E33,E35,E37, RV29
Where the rain fell is Glossy Accents to add some more dimensions.
The red/pink polka dot paper is Colorbok and the rainbow paper is a free download from Get Funky!
The sentiment is also from Bugaboo Stamps and the Bugaboo Angels
I added some stitching around the outside and around the sentiment which was punched out using my 2" circle punch.
Navy ribbon is from Elements
