MFT Monday

Happy Monday everyone! I hope your weekend was fantastic.

I know I have been a bad blogger but I have been going a bit mad with this whole potty training thing. Josh has the pee down but he just can let go of other. He was holding it in so I just put the diaper back on. I am trying it again and he has gone a few times so I am keeping my fingers crossed.

So now onto the card. I made this card with the new My Favorite Things mini of the month "Happy Mother's Day". It was released this past Wednesday along with a super adorable gardening set called "Can you dig it?" For this card I used Jen's sketch for you to try. I colored in the image with my copics. The pot is cut out to create a 3d effect. Card stock used is SU Guava, Chocolate chip, Certain Celery, and Papertrey Ink Stampers Select white. The patterned paper is from Basic Grey "Infuse" collection. I also added some rhinestones and May Arts ribbon. Well that is all for today but make sure to check back tomorrow for some more cards.

have you tried lining the potty with the diaper? Sometimes that helps.

Oh, and I love your cards!

Ana,Beautiful card! Potty training can be very frustrating. Claudia was hard and I stressed and stressed and the more I tried and stressed the less she cooperated. So one day I just put her panties on a drawer she could reach and told her that whenever she was ready she could wear them and use the potty. Like magic that day I heard the toilet flush and she came out of the bathroom wearing princess panties...end of it she never wore a diaper again and to my surprise never had an accident not even on her bed. Sometimes if you relax it will help...take a deep breath and just let go LOL! Now I have to potty train Mikey, he is already peeing but only before bath,this time I will just go with the flow and let him decide when he is ready.

Love the card Ana! It looks great- the patterned paper goes beautifully. Also, I love the new girlie color scheme on your blog!

So, my $.02 may mean nothing, sine I do not have children.. butttt in the years of nannying and babysitting, I saw a lot of parents use the "m&m if you go #2" trick. Seemed to work for some kiddos. Who knows?! Maybe in 5 years I can add some serious input on the topic! Hehehe :)
