New Babies

My very good friend, Theresa, had her babies yesterday on Thanksgiving. Wow, what a great day, what a wonderful thing to be thankful for. Incidentally, her first son was also born on Thanksgiving, 16 years ago. Yep, at age 40 she gave birth to two girls, number 6 & 7 in her family. Wow, I can't imagine having all those people in my house, but, somehow she makes it work. She has a great husband, who helps a lot.

So, I made this card for her. I can’t wait to go visit her and see the babies. I already know what they’ll look like, because all her babies are carbon copies of each other. Aside from her son, the rest are all girls, six girls. That’s a lot of pink. ;)

Used the Silhouette to cut out the brackets that I made with the font Bembo in Adobe Illustrator on the Mac.

Close up of the Heidi Swapp Bling right above the "AND A".

And, a close up of the Rhonna Farrer stamp I picked up at Target. Gotta love Target.

Lucky lately!

I've been pretty lucky lately. My layout got picked over at Creating Keepsakes for "Pick of the Day", or POTD as we MBers like to call it. That was sooo cool. Such a nice surprise, because I had had such a rotten day. It was on November 2, just click here to take a peek.

Then, I won a book from CK for the Happy Hour. Can't wait to get it. I picked Ali Edwards book A Designers Eye. I want to get Life Artist, too, but it's on sale on Amazon, and I emailed the link to my hubby and told him that is what I want for Christmas. He can't complain, it's under $20.

And then, on a whim, I did a RAK from giggles45 and WON! It was an entire set of Studio G Christmas stamps! So generous of her. I must make her a Thank You card.

Here's the RAK I won:

And, here's the card I did using one of the stamps:

And, here's a close up of the circle tag. I stamped it then used black embossing powder with sparkles. That was fun to do. First time I broke out my new heat gun that I bought in September.

I've also been on a major shopping spree.... oh my! I've spent way too much money on scrapping supplies. I'm trying to justify all this by saying to myself that I do have 10 years of scrapping to catch up on! ;)

Edward Scissorhands & A Greek Goddess

Yep, that's what my kids were for Halloween. Here are the picts to prove it! That had a great time, and got tons and tons of candy. The weather was great, too! Much different than today, 6 days later and about 30°! It's official, winter is here.
