Jacob's First Day of School

Well Jacob started Kindergarten two weeks ago, but I am just getting around to uploading pictures...

Its official - Mom's heart has broke!! I can remember when I was pregnant with him, they did several ultrasounds and could never tell if he was a boy or girl.....all I kept saying was I wanted a girl, I didn't want a boy and my heart was set on I thank God everyday for this wonderful little man! For those mom's of boys I am sure you can understand - there is something about your son that melts your heart. Now he is so independent and needs mommy less and less, that I just don't want to send him to school. My best friend cracks up at that statement because she says that I am a working mom, what difference does it make if hes at home during the day...its simply that he is now a BIG KID!

Well off to stamp - I didn't pick up a single stamp all week, talk about withdrawals!

Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge

Heres the card I created for Beate's sketch challenge...this was for some reason difficult for me...I think it was because I had to cut the side of the circles off, but really not sure exactly what....

I am really running low on paper stock, so I have found myself using colors I normally don't use and I am very pleased with them.

Well off to more stamping and laundry....I made a vow to myself to stay out of the stores until we get into our new that means a lot of stamping to keep my mind busy...

Friday Night Stampin!

Okay, so I posted in the wrong is the card I made last night....I used black, basic gray and not quite navy....this stamp set is just so adorable.....I love the way these colors POP against each other....LOL, I just noticed that my scan is slanted!

OCC Weekend Challenge Card

For this weekend's challenge over at Our Creative Corner...color combo: Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red and Old Olive, use Chocolate Chip as an optional color..... Well I had one small piece of scrap Old Olive left, so I used a lot of Chocolate Chip for this card....which is okay with me, I love brown!

I really wish I had a new digital camera, cause the scanner just doesn't give you the same effect...I actually have all of the leaves popped from the card base.

I know I am behind in times, but I just have to say that I love my new Cuttle, it really gives your cards a little extra something...but with four kids, its hard to have spare change.

This is for Jen del Muro's Something For You To Try sketch (above). The star could be any image or embellishment you wanted to use....See her great example here

For my card I used the last of my In Colors Blue Bayou and Soft Sky....I love this stamp set , Garden Whimsy...but I always have a hard time when I use it.

Now off to work on the TECC29 challenge, this one really has me thinking.
