Dogwood Stamp: Hero Arts, Image is stamped twice with Memento chocolate ink, the dogwood flowers are colored with copics, RV10, RV11 & RV13, and Y000 for the center.  They were cut out and then attached to the stem colored with YG05 and YG06, that was cut out using the label one die from spellbinders. The rick-rack border is from MS, it was punched then I embossed 3 lines using the scor-pal for some added dimension. The dark green paper was also emboseed with lines every 1/2" to add dimension. This stamp reminds me of the dogwoods we had on our property growing up, we had quite a few white dogwood. Then one year my brother and I bought my Mom a pink dogwood, it was so pretty.

Today was another icky, cold day in NC, I can't wait for Spring to get here! Owen had a two hour delay today due to the "possibility of snow", it was nice to sleep in for a change. Wyatt is having trouble taking his afternoon naps, and has been asleep in the car when we pick up his brother. So he has been pretty tired, which is the only reason I got to sleep in until 7:20,  I will take that any day! Today, Wyatt decided he wanted to ride with Daddy to take Owen to school. He brought Chris his jacket, socks and boots so Chris and Wyatt walked Owen into school. Chris said he was so excited and even got a chance to quickly check out Owen's classroom. He has been there a few times, but I don't think I have ever let him down to explore freely. After a few minutes Chris coaxed him out all without a tantrum, good job Daddy! Actually I think he bribed him with powdered donuts since he had the evidence all over him when he returned! I swear all that child does is eat, and I have no idea as little as he is how he can eat all the time! He will eat his dinner, then wander over to Owen's plate (who is picky) and eat everything off of his plate!
