Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday!
Hope you're having a great start to your week! We had a great day today! Playdates at the park and swimming lessons in a VERY warm pool! Jacob has turned into a fish and there's nothing stopping him now! Tomorrow (Tuesday) is a VERY special day at our house! Tomorrow is my baby's 4th birthday! I can't believe Jacob will be 4! Those years have sure gone by fast. He has changed so much and is now growing up so quickly! We are heading out to a playdate with his best friend Caitlin this morning then onto lunch at McDonald's....it was his choice...not mine! Dinner will be tacos - his absolute favourite!
Okay...enough of me and my baby! Today I decided to tackle this week's Merry Monday challenge. I'm totally bummed I missed last week's challenge so I needed to get this card made today! This card took me forever to do...it started out looking very different...honestly...sometimes I wonder about how my brain works! I think this card looks a bit better in person than it does in jpeg!
I love the lacy brocade embossing folder and couldn't help but use it! Of course I also had to throw at least one pearl in there! I also got my hands on the new Stampin' Up! sanding block...must say it's way better than stealing sandpaper from my husband's workshop!!!
Cardstock: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Champagne Glimmer
Stamps: Mixed Medley, Bright Hopes
Ink: Versarmark, Early Espresso
Other: Scalloped Circle Punches, circle punch, Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon, Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder, Dimensionals, Basic Pearls
Here is a picture of my pumpkin 30 minutes after he was born (6 weeks early)...not the healthiest baby.
Below is a picture of Jacob this past weekend with a fabulous Angry birds card my mom made for him!
