Home Sweet Home

     Okay, the birds sweet home. This is a Meljens rubber stamp that i bought from Whimsy stamps. It's called "Garden bird House".   The Meljens designs challenge this week is Buttons and Bows and as you probably already know, i always try to play in the Meljens challenges.
     I have already signed my son up for Football today.  He loves football season and really it's the only time of the year that he doesn't complain about the "heat".  I don't know why, he sweats like crazy in his gear, but i guess the love of football wins in that situation. Just let me say, I COMPLAIN ABOUT THE HEAT during football practices. LOL.
