Another weekend bites the dust...

Sigh. The weekends never seem to come quick enough or stay long enough, huh? I had a good one, although mostly uneventful except for a fun St. Patty's Day party with the neighbors last night. I'm still having lots of sick days, unfortunately, although I am getting a couple days a week reprieve it seems, so that's progress :-) I'm hoping baby will soon tire of torturing his/her mama, and move onto to the fun stuff lol. Last week was a bit rough because Tony was away on a business trip. Normally I don't mind that much when he goes away, but I was a bit nervous about being able to take care of the kids 24/7 when i'm still having lots of rough days/nights. Fortunately, the kids and I survived, and we're all still alive ;-) And we were veeeery happy to see a certain handsome guy walk through the door on Friday hehe.

I have a recent Fancy Pants layout to share. I used one of my favorite FP lines, Vintage Valentine. I used my Martha Stewart heart punch to punch the heart borders, and then I backed the page with pink cardstock. I also used silver glitter to glitter up the FP chipboard heart. Love this pic of Chloe and Tony :-)
I know i'm a few days early, but I made this St. Patty's day card to celebrate the holiday full of green. The patterned paper is Fancy Pants' brand new Rusted Sun line, and the ribbon is FP as well. I made my own stamp out of a potato for the shamrock - if you'd like to see instructions, you can check them out here on the AMM blog.
Check back again in a few days, and i'll show you how I made these tissue paper flowers. I'll have a tutorial up on the AMM blog for these on Tuesday :-)
Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and that those of you who "sprung forward" last night aren't suffering from the time change too much!!
