Here is a card I made this morning for the new sketch #57 at CPS .
I thought I would step out of my comfort zone for this one, and use colors and designs that I usually do not use. Even my daughter said "Wow mom this card is so unlike you." The card reads "Shopoholic". I thought this card would be a cute birthday greeting with a gift card tucked inside!
Thanks for all your sweet comments!

So Sweet Of You

Here is a set of cards I made for my sister in law who just had a sweet baby girl. Yes, Mandy these are for you!:) I wanted to make some feminine Thank You's for all the darling baby gifts she is receiving. The stamp I used, "So Sweet Of You" is from Stampin' Up.
I might be away from creating & blogging for a few days! We are getting new carpet today throughout our entire house. All of my scrapbooking room is in our master bathroom at the moment.
Thanks for all your sweet comments.

Tommy and Kate

Big brother Tommy holding Kate.

Me holding baby Kate.

I just had to share these pics of my new niece Kate and my nephew Tommy. I brought dinner to my sister in law's house last night and I asked my three year old nephew, "What is your little sisters name?" He responded with a big smile on his face: "Moo Tiger." I laughed and looked at my brother in law puzzled. My brother in law, Jake, said "Yep, thats what he nicknamed her:)"
I thought that was so cute! How funny.
Thanks for all the sweet comments & well wishes:)

New Camera

My new Canon G9

New crisp picture taken with my camera.

Yay!! I bought a new camera.
I am so excited. My old camera was getting long in the tooth.
I bought the Canon Power Shot G9.
The quality of the picture is amazing. I took a new picture of the baby boy card I recently made, and you can actually see the quilting on the white paper I used. If anyone is looking for a new camera I highly recommend the G9. I also got a new program for my computer called Aperture 2 its a professional photo editing program much like Photoshop. It's a fun program to play around with, I have a lot of learning to do before I can actually put the program to good use:)

I managed to get my camera to work, just for a few pictures though and after calling the darn thing some choice words.

Here is a card I made last night using the sketch #54 over at CPS.
I had a lot of fun making this card. I had some one special in mind while working, my soon to be niece or nephew, due any day now. Mom & dad are hoping for a boy, but of course would love a girl. The picture did not catch the quilting on the white paper, if you look closely you can barely see it. I also used pearl Stickles to embellish the buggy. Thanks for looking.
