All CS and DP is from PTI's March release!!! The one stamp I used is favorite weddings and the butterfly is Marta Stewart. I ran the base through the CS with birds and swirls the Big eyelets are from SU and the ribbon is PTI. the strip in the middle I punched out circles with my small punch to make the border and the sewed it love this card but I think it could use another color!!!!!

so Love the cards. Hank you silly boy babies aren't supposed to take baths in the potty. You are right Sarah that did make me laugh. Now for my story Olivia can't reach the toys at the bottom of her toy box so about once a day I find her screaming with her feet over her head stuck in the toy box. That is the funniest one I have for you right now. Love ya sissy and hank go potty in the big potty not put baby in there.

Wow. That tulip card is so so fantastic! I am completely jealous of your talent. Can I just *be* you?I don't have a lot of silly kid stories, because I haven't convinced my hubby to have one yet :) But I do have an adorable story about my friend's kid. He just turned 4, and he is completely enthusiastic about everything -- especially presents. Most kids will just kid of take the present and run without so much as a forced thank you from their parents, but not this kid. He is overly excited about every present he ever gets. So for valentine's day, I took him over a little car coaster box that I had filled with some goodies. One of which was a granola bar in one of those ever-popular candy bar covers. So I give it to him, and he looks at the cover and says "what's this?" and I tell him to pull the ribbon to get it out, and he does. And he gets THE most happy look on his face and screams out in complete joy "I've always wanted a granola bar for a PRESENT!" Completely serious. How funny is that?

Kids can do the most amazing things and get into trouble by just being curious!! My son was much more mischevious than my daughter -- it's a boy thing I think. He had a bead craft bead shoved up his nose once and I had to use tweezers to get it out. Thankfully, he KNEW I was going to be able to help him and he sat very still while I tried various sizes of tweezers to get it out. Luckily one worked and we saved ourselves a trip to emergency.My son also did a rather gross thing -- only for the strong stomached ones here! My daughter was potty trained but had a hard time getting on the big toilet so she had a potty on the floor she could use and then dump into the toilet. She had to go #2 on the potty so I went upstairs to get something quickly. She started to call me loudly and when I got down to the bathroom I saw a horrible site!! My dear son (about a 8 months old at the time) had made his way to the potty and helped himself to its contents! He has smeared the walls and the floor quite nicely and worst of all had shoved some in his mouth!!! Well, I almost tossed my cookies at that sight and then again when I had to dig it out of his mouth. Needless to say he got a THOROUGH cleaning of his mouth! Fears of a horrible disease never came to fruition and it is an event that will never be forgotten!Thanks for the chance to win :)

Sarah, Your work is just gorgeous and I love reading about your kids. Thought I'd share one of my funny stories. We were in the car and I was scolding my daughter, who was 9 years old at the time, when my 3 year-old son chimed in from the back seat "Yes Sissy, you be good or you goin' to jubinile hall!" Of course my daughter and I just cracked up. I have no idea where he had even heard of juvenile hall, let alone what it meant.

My year and a half old granddaughter was found in the kitchen squatting down beside the dog's water bowl. BOTH she and the dog had their tongues in the bowl lapping up water together. When her mother shouted out asking what she was doing she replied, "I firsty Mommy!"

ACK! My daughter never played in the potty...YAY! :) One of my fav things about when my daughter was younger (she's 9 now) was her use of words. A few years ago, we went to Disney World...it was my DD's first trip. On our 3rd day there, we were talking about going to Epcot, but DD insisted that it was "Apricot"...very stubbornly, I might add, so "Apricot" became our name for Epcot ever since. Love the card!

Sarah these cards are fab, love the tulip one and all your stitching My story is one of many, and I really should write them down so I can show her when she is older, because out of my three girls, she totally cracks me up, lol Last year, as a typical 3 year old, she would not sit down for love nor money, so I threw out the comment in front of my aunt, Maddie do you have ants in your pants or something (just your typical saying to somebody who won't sit still) - oh no, she proceeded to drop her trousers, yank down her pants and peer in them with her head nearly between her knees to see, and looks up and says, "I don't have any ants in my pants mummy!!!!!!!!!!!!" OMG we nearly wet ourselves laughing, it was the funniest thing, you should have seen the expression on her face, totally priceless and that is one story I will never forget to tell her when she is older. xx

So Sarah, I think you were about three when i got in the car and you were pale as a ghost... no color in your face at all. I thought you were sick. I noticed a tiny piece of toilet paper stuck yo your chin and I asked your dad what happened He told me to ask you.... You said, "I shaved Mommy!" and stared sobbing uncontrollably. It was the first time you had ever seen your own blood and it frightened you so much you almost went into shock!!! I have a million of them Want to hear some more.....Your cards are beautiful by the way! I love you!

Your cards are just fabulous! I love both of them:)I have enjoyed reading all the stories about the children:)I am raising 2 of my grandchildren, a boy 11 and a girl that just turned 5. When my granddaughter came home from preschool Thursday her teacher had given all the children an Easter basket with 6 plastic eggs inside. Later that afternoon she was walking around the house with her basket and she had her eyes closed. I asked her what she was doing and she replied"hiding my Easter eggs". So I asked her why she had her eyes closed and she said so she couldn't see where she hid them!!!LOL A few minutes later she ran into the kitchen just jumping with excitement because she "found" them all!!LOL

I have a funny one! My two young boys 3, and 6 were sleeping together the other night. My youngest woke up screaming and when we went to him he was half asleep and crying that he had lost his Lightning McQueen car, and wanted it! As we were trying to console him, my older son wakes up all grumpy and says "You woke me up and I was having such a great dream!" To which my 3 yr old replied:"Were YOU dreaming about playing with MY Lighting McQueen??" I'm still laughing!Deena (moonrise)I also wanted to say that your card is just wonderful! I love everything about it, so I added a link in my 'Today's Faves!' on my blog! Have a great day!

Ok, took some time to think about what it would be (we have a lot of funny stories around here), but here it is... My daughter was teething bad so we had a bottle of Orajel on her dresser in case she woke up in the middle of the night. My son, almost 3 at this point, went in her room to greet her after her nap like he did every day. All of a sudden it got really quiet, so I cautiously opened the door and found my son on top of the dresser with the cap "off" the Orajel. I asked him, with a smile on my face, what he was doing to which he replied, "This tastes good mommy!" Within 30 seconds the next thing out of his mouth, picture this with a numb tongue accent "My thongue theels thunny!" I was absolutely HYSTERICAL. From that point on I learned to run when it gets quiet :-)

Hi Sarah, Love the cards and the story...what a hoot....My story involves a toilet too...except that this one was in the local B&Q depot store....My son who was 18 months and being potty trained at the time....suddenly ran away from me in the store and I found him on the toilet in one of the bathroom displays and when he saw me he said "mummy I did a poo in the toilet, am I a good boy now"...I was horrified he got off and sure enough he had done one....!!!I wish I had a mobile phone then that I could have taken a picture with....that would have been one for the 18th birthday party !!Hugs Janette x

My daughter taught me a very important lesson a few months back: do not, I repeat, do not take something from your 3 year old without looking to see what "gift" you are getting. My daughter is always handing me stuff, usually while I'm driving. Maybe, it's her cereal bar wrapper. Or her empty sippy cup. Or her sucker stick. Well, early one morning--like 4 am--my daughter came to my bedside and said "Here you go, Mommy". I was half-asleep and reached out my hand without a question. Then she rubbed something on my hand. I asked her what it was. "It's poopy" she replied. Before I even knew it, my hand was at my nose and I took a whiff. What was I thinking? It turns out that Allie had a poopy in her pull up (never happended since potty training) and decided that Mommy was just the person to help her out. After I realized what I had on my hand, I bolted up out of the bed and started sqealing to my husband. Of course, he laughed...and laughed...and laughed. Guess who got to scrub the kid while I scrubbed myself? That'll teach him to laugh at me for having poopy on my hand!--melissalance@bellsouth.net

I am sitting her laughing so hard at these stories! You will have one rough time picking which one makes you laugh the hardest for sure!We only have 1, Zack, who is now 15 1/2, so my stories are limited. He had to be 2-3 yrs old & asked for a snack & after some discussion he wanted a carrot. As I am walking into the kitchen to get one out, peel & cut it up he is having ne terrible fit. Finally I got him to settle down & asked what the trouble was when he replied, through sniffing tears & a snotty nose "But momma, I wanna scratch it!! " Meaning he wanted to peel the carrot! I know that isn't as funny as the others but thought I'd share a memory.
