Hang in there.

Wow it's been over a week since my last post and unfortunately I won't be posting much for awhile. I have no desire to stamp anything. Right now I 'm looking forward to having my my baby only three weeks away. I still have so much to get ready. I was looking forward and hoping my little one would come early but now my two girls are sick with a fever so I'm hoping the baby will wait a little longer. I can't believe I actually said that who wants to be pregnant longer lol.

Well here is a card I made back in Jan. that I never posted I used my circle nestabilites and my cc designs little money stamp from the monkey love set. I colored it in with my copics and sponged crystal blue ink around the monkey I also used a copic marker to make leaves on the tree branch. Thanks for visiting.

Busy Busy Busy

Last Thursday my daughter came down with a stomach bug or maybe it was something she ate because nobody else came down with it. Then came Valentine's day which is really no problem I mainly just celebrate it by giving my kids something I don't celebrate it with my husband because our anniversary is two days later which is today. Love you honey Happy Anniversary(just in case he reads this but he probably doesn't even know my blog name). Wow we've been been married for 8 yrs. I can honestly say I love him more each and every day.
I don't know how much I'll be able to post this week I'm going out to dinner with my hubby tonight. Wednesday is my daughters birthday so I need to get my house in order for her birthday party. Then I start my weekly visits to the doctor on Friday.My son is also off track until March so instead of two crazy monkeys running around I have three and my son just happens to be the craziest of all. Well now that you know my schedule for the week just know it's crazy here lol.

Here is a card I was supposed to post last Thursday. this card is for the Snss sketch challenge #3 on pcp. I used snss purr-fect day. I have been busy making hair bows because of Jen del Muro's post here My camera battery died so I'll have to take the photo later to show tomorrow if I get a chance. I kind if went a little crazy with making them I think my girls will have bows to match everything they own.

stamps- puff-fect day(snss)
ink-tuxedo black(memento)
dp-magic moments(ctmh)
cs-dutch blue, sweet leaf, colonial white(ctmh)

Kimmie's challenge & Baby card

This is the last of Kimmie's challenges and this one we needed to use a boy or girl stamp with flowers. A friend of mine and his wife just had a baby girl so I thought I would make this card to send to them. Since I'm writing about babies did you know I only have 5 more weeks left of my pregnancy, and is it so bad of me to want my baby to come just 1 week early. I know I won't get much stamping time after the baby is born but I am sooo ready for this pregnancy to be over with. Ok so enough of my complaining .Thanks for visiting and have a great day.

What I used
ink-tuxedo black(memento)

Hey Cupcake

It's another one of Kimmie's challenges I have made cards for all of her challenges so you get to see them for the next few days. This one is challenge #1 to use purple and make it a birthday card. I don't really like this card much I think I should have put another white circle behind the purple scallop so it would stand out more but I had already glued it down and I didn't want to risk tearing the cupcake image. I used liquid applique but it was very old and came out tan instead of white luckily it still puffed up still, and didn't look to bad. I then used glossy accents on the cherry.Oh and one last thing I used shimmerz on my flowers it showed up pretty well in my photo I was surprised. Well thanks for visiting and have a great day.

What I used
stamps-sweet n hearts(doodle factory starving artist stamps), hey there cupcake(stampendous)
ink-tuxedo blakc(memento), amethyst(ctmh)

Hogs and Kisses

I had planed on posting this last night but instead I went to bed early. This card was made for another one of Kimmie's challenges this one is challenge # 4 to use an animal stamp and ribbon or rick rack. I just love these little doodle factory piggies from starving artists they are so cute I colored them in with my copics and put a little shimmerz on their snouts and the hearts. For the sentiment I didn't have any thing that worked so I wrote my own with my signo white gel pen. hope you all have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting.

What is the Belli Challenge you ask?
Each week, Chrissy tries to give us a challenge that will use things we have lying around our stamp rooms or homes! With a constant flow of new things coming out, we tend to forget about the other things we have and they quickly become clutter!This weeks, Belli Challenge is to make something for Valentine's or use hearts.
