It's been a while! Just trying to catch up from "hospital life". It's hard getting a years worth of stuff caught up on. I've been organizing, throwing things away, and just plain old spring cleaning! I love to have things "in their place", but we just don't seem to have enough places to put things.....or maybe I have too much stuff! (I don't think that could possibly be right)!
I've been stamping....quite a bit actually, but not much time to update my blog. We are getting ready to celebrate by having a party for Ethan. It is a Pirate theme so I made some invites....I think they turned out really cute. I saw the idea in a magazine and I didn't stray too far from that card. I usually come up with my own ideas, but I really like how this card looked and I just went with it. Credit goes to the original designer: Susan Stringfellow http://creativelysavvy.blogspot.com/ I just have the page torn out of the magazine so I don't even know what magazine it came out of, but thank you for your wonderful idea! I'll take a picture and post tomorrow (it's too dark to try now)!
We're going to have a lot of fun. This party is all about the kids. We're going to have lots of fun and games. I can't wait and neither can Ethan!
"HOPE" is a tri-fold card that I used for a baby card. The baby's name is actually Hope and I immediately thought about this stamp set and had to use it. The verse on the inside fit perfectly. I made my own patterned paper to go with it. The color is the new color from Papertrey Ink, Lavendar Moon. I designed the card that after it was opened that it could set on a table and you could see the baby's picture and the verse about Hope!
I used some Retired Stampin' Up! sets for this card. Here's the Recipe:
Stamps: Feathered Hope and Illuminations (Stampin' Up!)
Paper : Lavender Moon (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Lavender Moon (Papertrey Ink)
Ribbon: Lavender Moon Satin (Papertrey Ink)
Here are some funny pics of my kiddos eating spaghetti! It was a mess, but too cute to not take a picture!
