So sometimes there just so much going on in life that blogging goes by the way side. It has been a very busy couple of months for me. I've traveled for work, a birthday, cake decorating classes, kids last day of school, road trip to visit family and a family reunion, baseball games, softball games, baseball/softball practices, a dance recital for my 6 yo, and an awards ceremony celebrating high ACT & SAT scores for my 13 yo, and family visit at our house, and visited the President Truman's home, library & museum. Ok, so now you are caught up!
Here's a picture of Douglas & Reanne at the Lied Center at the Univeristy of Kansas with Baby Jay. The Duke TIP program held their recognition ceremony for 7th graders whose SAT/ACT scores qualified them for state recognition. I am so proud of Douglas!
Although there has not been too much time crafting.... that didn't stop my collecting of supplies!!!!
While visiting my Grandmother in Jetmore, KS we stopped into the little shop that she and other ladies run. It has hand made items as well as a antique/thrift store type of finds. This is where I picked up a set of vintage Bingo cards with a few wooden bingo pieces! The price said $.10, but since I know my grandmother and the other ladies depend on the sales to keep the shop running, I paid $2, which is still an absolute steal!
This card was made for the Moxie Fab blog challenge using bicycles. I didn't finish my entry in time to enter, but I thought I'd share anyway. i made this as a thank you card for my grandmother so she could see what I could do with those bingo cards!
Lastly is my very first cake from my second night of cake decorating! I asked my mom for the class and tools for my birthday this year. We learned the star technique. I drew the butterfly free hand tnd then filled it in with different colored icing. I really enjoyed the class!

I love your card and I love the cake! I am getting ready to take the cake classes at Hobby Lobby! I am pretty sure my cake won't look as good as yours! LOL!
