Busy week

I can't believe it's already Friday evening. This week has flown by. I made a card for my newest (#4) great-nephew who arrived today sometime around noon. Gavin weighed in at 10#3oz. I don't know how long he is, but he is one big boy.

Here's the card:
and the recipe:

Stamp Set: Baby Bundle    
CS: Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petal, Baja Breeze, Whisper White
DSP: Patio Party
Ink: Basic Black, Versamark
Misc: Curly Label Punch, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Fancy Fan Folder, brads, Whisper White EP, Midnight Muse 3/8” stitched Satin Ribbon

 I'm headed off to a shoebox event Sunday morning. I decided it was time to start Christmas cards so here's what I came up with:

I've used the new Holiday Ornaments Framelits from the Stampin' Up! Holiday mini catalog as well as the Delicate Designs Embossing Folder on the front. I really like depth they add.

I did stamp a sentiment on the inside, but unfortunately forgot to take a picture of that!
I've got a few other Christmas cards done that I'll add later.

Here's a card I made using Jewish Celebrations:

I used the Window Frames Collection Framelits and layered two sizes. The image is stamped on vellum. It doesn't show very well in the picture; much better in real life.

The last item I'd like to share tonight is a recipe card I made for a swap. I just love these things!
(sorry its not the clearest picture, but you get the idea.)
Tomorrow will be a busy day, too.My eldest is in town from Vermont so we're having a big breakfast with the girls before she leaves. Maybe I'll have time for stamping after!


  1. Very nice card and beautiful baby! I hope you meant 10 pd 3 oz. Big boy either way.

  2. Thanks, Jonia. For the feedback and proofreading. I did mean 10 and will change it!
