My Work In Progress...

So, we found out this week what we are's a healthy baby GIRL!!!  She's about the only thing I've managed to work on lately!! ;O)  She was less than cooperative during the sonogram, so our pictures aren't exactly stellar.  This was our first experience with a 3-D sonogram, kind of disappointing I have to say!

I have one card I will share with you tomorrow that I completed forever ago and never posted.  I also have a couple layouts in the works I'm hoping to share soon.  Sorry for my lack of productivity!  I have a feeling I won't be very consistent until after our little trouble maker makes her appearance this spring!!

Happy Birthday to Me...

Hey everybody!!  I'm finally starting to feel more like myself, o.k., well, less nauseous anyway...still extremely exhausted!  Anyone who says they "Loved being pregnant" didn't have to work!!  

I photographed these beautiful cards, that I received for my birthday ages ago, but, am just now getting them posted.  Aren't they gorgeous!!

The first one is from my friend Barbara, isn't the background paper great?  She totally did that with embossing powder and a fancy tool....I need to ask her how, I've never seen anything like it!  How great is it!!  She also did a great job on the ice cream cone from the stamp set with the Fanfare Workshop on the Go with embossing powder again...I never think to stamp tone on tone.  I love how it looks!  If you want to see more of her work and read her creative take on life, check out her blog here at "Grammy's Place"!

The second one is from my mother-in-law, Diana.  How great is it!  I just love the colors!!  She used the Splendor paper pack.  Can you tell they are great customers! ;O)
