A Sweet Card and My Kiddos!

Ava Girl and I got to venture out of the house last Saturday to a craft show that we attend every year. This year the highlight was new American Girl clothes. Here is Ava showing off a new outfit on her Bitty Baby Isabelle. She loves to dress them up!

Here's Baby Kale on Sunday. Doesn't he look cute in his little cowboy shirt. I'm just nuts over cowboy stuff. I went last night to finish up my Christmas shopping and I found 4 horse outfits for my little guy. He won't have a choice about being a litle cowboy until he can dress himself!!!

Here a baby card that I made for two friends that had little girls recently. I just love how they turned out. I personalized the onsie with their names. Now I'm off to get a shower before company starts to come. I need to pick up some too! My main goal these days has been to at least take a shower each day....isn't that pathetic. This was actually the first day that I created a card. I've been working on finishing my baby announcements that I will share in a few days. I wanted to at least get them in the mail before I showed them on here. I'm tweeking my Christmas cards and we are getting together tonight to work on them and drink a little wine! My friends and I got together to work on cards last year and it was so much fun so we decided to do it again this year.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and have fun shopping for great deals on Friday!

Our Sweet Baby Kale

Yesterday our sweet Baby Kale arrived and he is just adorable and perfect in every way. Here are a couple pictures of our new little bundle of joy. He weighed in at 8 lb 3 oz and was 20 1/2" long. Yes....I have him dressed up in a little cowboy outfit already!!!

Pink Cat Studio.....More Digis!

Still baby news yet! I have yet another "very" sparkly card to share with you today. Ava and I had fun coloring this snowman from Pink Cat Studios New Digis. I should have taken a picture of her coloring, she is getting quite good with it. Of course she had to add some sparkles to hers too!

I've been making Christmas trees just by cutting out simple triangles and using my xyron sticker machine and then adding some Martha Stewart glitter. I got a little "glitter happy" with this card. Isn't this snowman cute! These digi images not only make great cards, but I blow them up for my daughter to color too and she loves that! I'm way behind on showing some of the projects I've been working on, but being 9 months pregnant, I don't get as much done as I used too! I decided to blow up the horse from "Cowboy Ethan" and make a "softie" as Melissa calls them. It turned out so cute. Then Sat I decided to make Ava girl a stocking. I usually buy the felt kits with all of the sequins and make them, I've made Dave and Ethan both one, but I decided to make Ava girl's from scratch. It has a snowman on it with a pink tutu. She really likes how it turned out and I opted out for Kales and ordered him one from "The Company Store".
Maybe today.....if nothing happens on the baby front, I'll get some pics of my creations from this past week. I even have a small Christmas tree up in my dining room. Thanks to my Mom, it looks beautiful! I don't know if I'll get a good pic of it or not!
Have a great rest of the week! Hopefully the next time you hear from me it will be about my new little bundle of joy!
(Still having trouble with this blogger letting me copy and paste, so be sure to go to Melissa's blog to link to all the other gal's sites!)

Some Pink Cat Studio New Digis and a Special Memorial Request

Today is the day for another release from Pink Cat Studio. I chose to do the cupcake image and had good intentions of making a scrapbook page with my little cupcake from Halloween, but time got away and I didn't get my picture printed out so I decided to just make a card instead. I love the color combo and aren't the birdies too cute! Melissa is one talented gal.
Here is a little notebook I purchase from PTI all bundled up in this cover. I used the new digi image that is helping to raise money for a very special 3 year old little boy. Read Melissa's blog for his story and what the money raised with this image is going to. Blogger isn't letting me copy and paste this morning and I need to get going. I encourage you to purchase this image as I was in a similar situation before and Melissa was so kind to help our family raise money for the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

Happy Halloween from our Little Cupcake and Super E!

We had a nice Halloween stretched out over several days. We modeled Ava's costume off of the one in the Pottery Barn Catalog (imagine that!) My husband helped to make most of it and he will gladly tell you that he did. Here's some pictures of our little cupcake from Halloween.
Here's a family photo....oh if you only knew how proud my husband was! I can hardly get the guy to wear dress pants to church, but he wore a suit for 2 days to poke fun at Obama.
Here's our little Ava girl again trick or treating at the winery!
Here's Super "E" and Ava girl from Halloween last year.....oh how he loved to dress up!
Sometimes Ava and I let Lilly Rose come inside to play for a while. Daddy didn't know this, but he played along on Saturday. She just loves her kitty!

Hope everyone had a good Halloween!

Happy Birthday Kristin!

My card will be a little late getting to her, but my "blogging" friend, Kristin has a birthday today. I just made her a card and so did all of the other girls on the JUGS team. Be sure to stop by there and follow their Birthday Blog hop! Sounds like she had a great day!

I'm counting down the days before our newest addition arrives. Could I get so lucky to have this baby early?? That would be wonderful. I think everyone in our house is very anxious for baby Kale to arrive!

Here's my birthday card for Kristin....hope you enjoy!

I'll be back later in the week to share some pictures of our little cupcake on Halloween!
