Kraftin’ Kimmie’s “No Embellies” Challenge

This week’s challenge over at Kraftin” Kimmie stamps is to create a card with no embellishments, and it just so happens that I made one! (UPDATE – of course, I did not get a chance to upload this before the deadline, so I wasn’t eligible for the challenge… but that’s ok, taking care of the little one is the first priority nowadays :))

Wedding Card for Erin

My good friend, Erin’s, sister was getting married last weekend so she requested a wedding card.  I pulled out two of my favourite KK stamps, Chester and Posy.  I coloured them to look (almost) exactly like how the bride and groom would look on the big day – yes, the bride wore red!  I have been told that she really liked the card, which is excellent!  I apologize for the terrible picture – I was busy with the baby, so the hubby was playing photographer, and the lighting was not all that good… obviously. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Until next time… toodles!

He FINALLY Arrived!


After being 11 days overdue, and with a not so gentle nudge from the doctor, my beautiful little man, Nathan arrived on July 4, weighing in at 8lbs, 2oz.  I have to say, I was extremely pleased with my delivery day, and childbirth was not that bad (that’s with my new best friend “epidural”).  All in all it was just an amazing experience, and I am loving being a mom!  Needless to say, my crafting moments have been few and far between, but that’s ok.
