Hello friends. My name is Jeni Allen!:) I have been in full time "Mommy" mode this past week. It has been a very eventful last few weeks...and our crazy isn't over yet! Max and I spent a large amount of time on Tuesday at the Children's Hospital in Seattle. He has a spot of something on his face that has stumped the Dr's at our Dr. office(all 3 of them). So, we went and were happy to learn that it wasn't anything serious--just inflamed Exema. He had a infection in it...and it looked terrible! I have to say, being 5 months old, he has had more perscriptions than my other kids have had in their almost 8, 6, and 3 years of being!

So, I've got a little something to share! This was one of the cards we made last week at my little elementary school card class. I love the fresh and clean of it...I think that with spring whispering somewhere..."whitespace" is really calling my name!!
The girls loved the paper and little lace border...they all loved the butterflies...they all loved it!

I'm off to the dr. today to chat about my hands...they are hurting...I'll keep you posted when I have a bit more to share...thanks so much for stopping by! I'll have some fun to share next week! Have a wonderful Easter this weekend! See you Monday!

Oh my goodness, looks like you had a lot going on! Hospitals for a little guy like that is no fun, I'm glad it wasn't anything too serious! Take it easy on your hands! I'm sure it's a combo of being a mommy and all the crafting that we do, they say, the thing that we love the most can hurt us. I've even been backing off on crafting to salvage my hands and intermittent back pain. Thinking of you lots and hope you have a special Easter!

Love your sweet butterfly card!

Jeni, such a gorgeous and soft card with the tulle bow. Love the brightness of the paper you chose. Sounds like the school girls are really having fun. So sorry to read about poor little Max. Seems it's been one thing after another with him. And, it's no wonder you're having problems with your hands. Hope it's nothing serious. Happy Easter!

I'm sorry you and your little one had to go through all of that. I'm glad to hear it is nothing serious. I hope your hands start to feel better.

Spring is not whispering anywhere around here. I think your card is gorgeous. I love clean and simple cards.
