What's new in my lil world...

As you know, Father's Day is coming up, so i decided to make a card for my dad using my new stuff!! :) i used the Lime Rickey paper from Basic Grey, Stampin Up! Ribbon, my new robot stamp and sentiment and a coolie metal flower i got in a RAK from Samantha! :) I still have to make one for Layne (Cody's dad) and then i'm done making Father's Day cards!! I made Code a cool gatefold card and gave it to him already (i just need to take a pic and post it) and then i also made Code a card for Madi to give him.. she just needs to write on the inside :)

This is a card i made for a Color Challenge on Any Stamp Will Do. I got to make up the colors for this one... so i got a chance to use my new Wisteria papers by Basic Grey. :) i used a Gorjuss Girl image i got from Samantha on this one cuz i thought she was really cute and went with the colors well. (i tend to color images in advance so it's more difficult for me to make a card)
Along with the Color Challenges (which i am helping Sam with while she's away), i am in charge of the group called 'Are ya up for a Challenge?' where every Monday i post a new challenge and a card i have made for the challenge. it's a good way for me to stay on top of making things and not allowing me to slack off! i'm not a big fan of being hot- so staying inside where it's kinda air conditioned is gonna help me have time to make some stuff too!!
On another note, Mom and I are starting to get more ideas for a business! I have come up with some good names (which will be announced later since i have yet to tell Mom lol) and different marketing ideas and such for it! Earlier i sat down and wrote out some things we could sell and pricing ideas... so once we start making things we have a better idea of what to make and how much to sell it for :) I'm EXCITED! i cant wait to get things going!!
Code and i were talking the other day about our goals for the future, and i told him that i really would just rather stay at home w.Madi and make stuff and sell it. it's not that i dont think i can do it.. its just that im scared of failing that keeps me from jumping in head first. i think it's about time for me to just JUMP and see where it takes me!! i mean after all, life is about taking risks right? if i dont take a risk doing what i love then i wont ever be truly happy!! Code wants to go back to school for car stuff and eventually open his own shop :) anything is possible!!! he's very smart when it comes to cars and fixing them... he just sells himself short!!
Welp, off to hang out with my lil one and get some more cards made!!
Hope all is well with everyone!
Have a great day!
