Catching Up

My two guys are watching Star Wars as I write this, so I thought I'd take a minute to catch you all up.  The past few weeks have been busy around here.  I finished 150 wedding invitations, 60 bridal shower invitations, prepped the baby's room for painting, and unloaded the same room for the carpet guy to put in new carpet.  Not to mention play dates, birthday parties, and family gatherings.  So my house is a mess because all the stuff that was in the room is now in various places around the house!  But the carpet is in, some of the baby furninture is in, and I've started laundering all things baby.  Now if this baby would just decide to come early, that would be fine with me!  She is killing me already, and I still have 3 weeks to go.  Not sure I'm gonna make it, lol!  But in spite of all the busyness, I've still managed to do some stamping for fun.  I'd have gone crazy without "my time".

Here's a card I made a while ago, based on a card from the new SU catty:
I stamped the sweet peas with vintage cream ink and colored in the entire thing with a copic.  It's a little more subtle IRL.  I also stamped a portion of the sweet pea on the berry sorbet tag.

My little guy had his fourth birthday last week, and boy was he excited!  It was so fun to watch him!
Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
stamps - YOF Sweet Pea, All About You
paper - kraft, berry sorbet, sweet blush, dark chocolate
ink - vintage cream, berry sorbet, chocolate, copic
acc - chocolate taffeta, dimensionals, piercer, photo corner punch
