Baby Trip

Today we made the trip to visit with the newest addition to the family. He is not even a week old yet...but Leland is an adorable baby. He is a momma's boy already but he is sweet tempered. He let me hold him for a few minutes but then it was back to momma.This probably isn't the best picture of him...but hey...spitups happen. :) Momma is doing good. She is hurting a bit but then she just had a baby. Both Dave and her mom are around to help her out.

I won't forget about the other boy over there, Caleb. He is a happy big brother. His grandma Donna is visiting from California for a month and Carrie said that she is spoiling him. But that is always good when there is a new baby in the house.
While we were visiting Caleb took me upstairs....last time I saw him he wasn't able to make it up yet. So that was exciting to see. Plus, he and I went outside for a little while. He found the bubbles in the closet and had to blow some. He is definitely getting independent....as he had more of the soap water on him than anything esle. But he wanted to do it himself and I let him.

He also decided that he wanted his toy firetruck to play with. As you can tell it is a little too small for him...but it sure was funny trying to watch him ride in it. Plus, he just received the Mr. Potato Head....so we put him together.

Last But Not Least...Fat Cat Series


I love the Fat Cat stamp. I want to use it on everything. :) It reminds me so much of Rocky. I have made 3 cards so far as part of a series. I sent one to my PCM friend because she had admired it. The other 2 I don't want to send off....yet.

I guess the first one isn't a fat cat...but he looks like Rocky when he was a baby. :) He had me fooled into thinking that he was going to be a short haired kitty. Not so.....

No one agrees with me...but the background is supposed to be seaweed. I initially used my watercolor pencils and blender pen to make the background. Then I started filling in with a black pen. I thought it turned out nice. Then because I didn't know what to do with it...I decided to cut it into sections and that is how I came up with the idea for the backgrounds.


I want to make a series similar to the Gnome ones seen on TV.

Now for some cards....

I have been trying different Christmas card ideas. And making other types of cards. It is fun. BUt sometimes I get intoa rut. So that definitely makes it hard. My biggest rut right now...is I use the ticket corner punch on everything. I love it. But I need to be a little different. (Maybe.)
This set was made with using the Stampin' Up Set Moose You. I am not sure how it came out Christmassy but I like the look of it. I made it as a gift for a family member. I guess I better mail it now. :)

WOW....

I didn't realize it had been so long since I have posted. :) Life must be busy. Though not sure why....all I have been doing is going to school, working out, crafting, and cleaning house. LOL Actually, Tuesday was our anniversary...3 years. We spent the day together and went to the Mall of Georgia. We had never done that before...however, there was a scrapbook store I wanted to checkout. Both, Sheldon & I had a great time.
Here are some of our pictures from the wedding.
