A New Blog

Hey there everyone!
Sorry, no card to share today, but I'm hoping to be able to get some stamping time in this weekend....we'll see how it goes. So be sure to check back to see if I've been able to accomplish anything creatively exciting!
I do, however have a new endeavor to share with you.....I have started a new blog! You can get to it by clicking here. I have wanted for some time to have a place where I can share my thoughts and feelings about life, and didn't want to necessarily do it here on my stamping blog!
So check it out if ya like....and feel free to let me know what you think!
Hope you all have a great holiday weekend for those of you who live here in the United States.
Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

Another KW Color Inspiration card

Wow! I know all of you who stop by here regularly, have to be shocked and stunned.....3 posts in two days.....what has gotten into me? Have I forgotten that I have a new baby? No, he just happened to go to sleep really early last night with dad, and for some crazy reason, I wasn't falling asleep by 9pm, so I decided to peruse around blog land, and I even ended up making like 4 cards.....I think that's more stamping than I have done in the last 6 weeks!
Well, last night after I made and posted these cards(which I wasn't too excited about) for Kristina's challenge, the idea for the following card just popped into my head, and since baby was sleeping decided to jump on the idea and make the card, cuz who knows when I might get the next chance to stamp!
The only thing about this card, is that I didn't use any white, well, the butterflies are actually paper pieced on white paper, so I guess that technically I did use white, but you just can't see it.

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

Paper: Basic Grey, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White, (all SU), Pretty Pastels (PTI)
Stamps: Butterflies (PTI)
Inks: Basic Grey (SU)
Other: Circle punches, Rose Grosgrain Ribbon (SU)

YAY!!! A KW color inspiration.....reader's choice #1

Oh, it's been too long! If you have been following by blog for some time, you will know that it is because of Kristina's Color Inspiration challenges, that I even have this blog! It all goes back to that!

Well, 3 weeks after giving birth to my 4th boy, I figured it was time to try to get back into stamping.....I've only just stamped thank you card in the past month and a half......just doing what I had to....lame, I know, but that's just the way it was.

After posting the previous post, I just decided to bounce around to some blogs....its been so long since I've had the chance, and I couldn't believe that there was a challenge over on Kristina's blog....yay! And since baby Kellan is sleeping ever so peacefully in his daddy's arms, I figured that I better make a card quick, since the deadline in in just a little over a day away, and in my world these days, if I don't do it NOW, it might never happen.

So here are a couple of cards I made:

I know, not the most exciting cards I have made, but I'm pretty much happy that I made anything considering where I am at in life! And of course a picture of Kellan!!!Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

More Thank You's

Hi everyone!
These are actually the thank you cards that I made a little over a month ago and sent out to people who attended my baby shower. The same stamps were used for the invites, so I decided to keep the theme......I've been meaning to post them forever, and am just now getting around to doing so.
Not much new here, just trying to keep up with the school year coming to a close, and getting ready for summer. I know a lot of people dread summer and having their kids home, but I actually love it.....probably because I'm selfish, and love to be able to sleep in, and not have to be on any one's schedule, but my own......and I love just having lazy summer days with my boys!

Kellan is doing amazing, and is growing every day. I can't believe that he is almost a month old. All of the other boys are doing great too. They are adjusting to having a new baby in the house way better than I could have imagined or hoped for. I thank God each and every day for allowing me to be the mother to such wonderful and amazing spirits! I am truly blessed beyond what I feel I deserve, and thank you all for your well wishes and encouraging words.
Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

Kellan at Two Weeks and some Thank You Cards


Hey everyone....yes I'm still alive.....although I feel like I'm walking around like a Zombie these days......Kellan, over the past few days has decided that he likes to be up from about 1am until about 4 am. Straight. Cranky. This is not fun. He does however like Major League Soccer, and Deadliest Catch, and I've been filling up the Tivo with tons of shows, but still, I am exhausted....after 5 years, I had forgotten how tiring it is. But, it will end some day, and then he will be growing up just as fast as the other boys.....running around like crazy and hopefully sleeping all night!!!

Anyway here he is at two weeks......
And here are some cards I was able to make on Sunday, while he slept....during the day. I desperately needed to get some more Thank You's made so I could send out the last of what I need to get out. I feel so bad that these are all coming so late to people.....but better late than never, right?
I wanted to make something very simple, but cute,(I needed to mass produce and didn't know how much time I would have before Kellan would be awake and want to eat) and then I added a little more and then a little more. So there are three variations on the card!
Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!
