Fresh Brewed Triple Challenge

Howdy, Happy Bloggy Friends!
Today is Wednesday, which means a new challenge at the Freshly Brewed Challenges Blog.
The challenge this week is a "for fun" only challenge to use THREE of anything!
For my project, I used one of the BRAND NEW Hot Out of the Press images called
 "Angel Cake Flies a Kite"
My "three" things for the challenge are the itty, bitty, teeny-tiny bows on Angel Cake's Kite!
This center-step card has become my all-time favorite template!
It has just the right amount of space to "decorate" and the dimension that I love!

Here is a view from the side. You can see how the sun and kite are raised up on foam tape and how the center step middle panel stands apart from the main base as a real focal point!
For my sentiment "Smile" I used the "Smile Banner" image 
from The Stamping Boutique.
I colored and cut apart the image, but all it's elements are there: the blue birdies, the banner, and the balloons!

Somehow, these two images from my two FAVORITE designers just seemed to be made for each other!

The sun is a simple star and circle cut in MTC, embossed with Swiss Dots, and the clouds are from the "Weather" set in the new Lettering Delights "Cut its Simple Shapes Bundle".

I hope you'll get a chance to play in the "THREE's" challenge at Fresh Brewed!
And if you missed the Blog Hop Monday,
you can see all EIGHT new images at the Fresh Brewed Designs Shop 
in the "Hot Out of the Press" section!

As soon as I read it, I had to repost!

Stay at Home Moms by Jennifer Johnson 

A man came home from work and found his three children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn all around the front yard. The door of his wife's car was open, as was the front door to the house and there was no sign of the dog.

Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against one wall. In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a Cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing. 

In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door.

He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened. He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door. As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls. 

As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel. She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day went. 

He looked at her bewildered and asked, 'What happened here today?' She again smiled and answered, 'You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world do I do all day?' 'Yes,' was his incredulous reply. 

She answered, 'Well, today I didn't do it.'

Thank you for making my day, Amanda!!
