Exciting News! Baby #2 Announcement!

So we are now expecting baby #2! What an adventure this is! Having a 13month old, trying to keep up and being 15 weeks pregnant...boy am I tired! It's worth it, but I'm tired! Now I'm trying to stamp more and really enjoy my Stampin' Up! business?? I must be crazy! hahaha ....YUP!!

So here is the announcement that my wonderful, patient, husband Galen helped me with. Pose and take pictures of Wyatt, to get everything just right. He took the one where Wyatt is pointing to the ultrasound! Pretty good if you ask me!

I got this idea from Pinterest, of course and I tweaked it a little. I really like the way it turned out. And.....this Thursday we find out BOY or GIRL!!! Hopefully the latter, but just praying for a healthy, beautiful baby!

Have a great week everyone!!

Busy Summer Coming to a Close! Anniversary Card too!

Hi Friends!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while! It's been a busy summer...had Wyatt's FIRST birthday...WOW can't believe he is ONE! Also went to a wedding, a few baby showers, the Stampin' Up! Convention 25th Anniversary celebration (AWESOME!!!), and camping for a week! But I am super excited to be home, to have NEW Stampin' Up! goodies to play with and to be creating!
I love the new Simply Created kits which I will be posting projects that I've been creating.
I recently was asked to make an Anniversary card for a friend! What a compliment to know that someone loves my cards enough to have me make them instead of Hallmark. ;) Love that.
So here is my card that I made for her (and kept it sort of masculine like she wanted - I think!)

I used colors Whisper White, Early Espresso, Coastal Cabana, Lucky Limeade (I know it's retired - could use Pear Pizzazz instead!) The button is retired too but it's similar to the new naturals buttons, a wood button would be super cute here too! I also used the wood grain and chevron embossing folders. Also used the scalloped heart of hearts and the full size heart punch.

Hope you stick with my blog! I have some exciting news coming up!! (Business & Personal!) I plan to make more projects using my FAVORITE Stampin' Up! products, more cards, more scrapbook layouts, more craft/home decor projects too!
