Hi dear Stampers.

And that was another weekend in our household. On Saturday night we went swimming with 3 other families and their kids.. Wow.. with this cold weather outside and all the energy that needs to stay inside attached to our 3 kids.. the pool is the place to go in the winter! Our kids had such a blast. + the BIG PLUS is, that it was a heated pool. And a heated pool means that there are no blue lips and shivering kids at the end of the play time. Or 3 kids that all want to be dressed at the same time in the end, because they are so darn cold.. Yip.. we found our new family outing for the winter. Love it.

I created this card with the Pals Paper Sketch Challenge #127 in mind. I just tuned their sketch up side down to make it work with my images. I hope they don't mind (Hi PPA ladies :) Thanks for having such a beautiful sketch, I always love to play along with what you come up with! I actually saw this type of card somewhere on the net.. Not sure where, so I can't link you to it. So sorry about that. Don't you love the Elegant Eggplant and the Wisteria Wonder from Stampin Up mixed together with a hint of Whisper White.. It always does the happy / elegant card trick for me.

Well.. it's late again and I have to go to sleep, tomorrow it is going to be a new day again that will start early I am sure. Have a good sleep, if you're going to put your head down as well at this time. Or have a beautiful day if you are just getting up. (hi dear European friends)

Inky hugs, Pauline
