Amazing Week!

WOW!!! What a week our family has had! We just found out that we are expecting..... a baby boy! He will arrive in June. This has come as a total shock to all of us but as you can imagine we are overly excited right now! We have a lot to do in a short amount of time.

I do have some new cards to show you.... They were done last week before all the excitement broke my creative mindset!

Look at the birdie!!

Ok I gotta admit... that was a little wierd! But I have been playing with the Stampin Up set called "a birdie told me"!! Here are the results of my stampin time!!

I have seen these color combos used elsewhere like splitcoast and other stamper's bloggs so I though I would give it a shot! Its Rose Red, Bashful Blue, and So Saffron! The images are watercolored.

NEW info added!

I just wanted to add a few new links to the blog for you to check out! I added Claudia's blogg. She has some cool ideas and got me hooked on the Elzybells stamps! That link is also listed now. You have got to check it out so you can get hooked too! No stamp collection is complete without these cuties!!

My new shipment of stamps was sent today! I am hoping I will get them Thurs or Friday. When I do I of course will have to play and have new projects to add. My daughter Taylor is going to make her class valentines too so be on the look out for Taylor's special additon to the blogg!

Have a great week!

Little Jar of flowers!

This is a cute little jar I picked up from Wal Mart! I have been buying them for about a year! They are filled with fruit like mandarin oranges, fuji apples, strawberries, and pears. They sell for 97cents! No lables come on them so I don't have to fuss with Goo Gone! Now don't go rush out and buy them.... I am still collecting! (just kidding)

I simply put the jars in my dishwasher and let them sit out for about a week to make sure they are good and dry! Then you can decorate and fill with whatever you choose! I put buttons, ribbon pieces, flowers and clips in them! I just decided to add this to the top because I got tired of looking at the fruit lable!

I plan to decorate some and fill them with M&M's for my daughter's teacher as a valentines day gift. Of course her's will look better than this! I made this one really simple so I could see what was in it and not worry about throwing it in my scrapbooking/cardmaking tote!

Have a great weekend! I gotta get back to statistics homework! UGH!!
