Hello Baby!!!!

OM Goodness it sure dose take a long time to ten card when you have four kids who all want something from you and so dose the DH sometimes I wish there where more of me and for my DH who has been on a Holiday work week and has not done much of anything, to stop telling me he is tired!!!! Not to sound like I don't care or anything But......... oh wait I don't!!! he gets to sleep!!!
Okay enough of that . This is the card I made to announce the birth of my fourth and final little baby and let me tell you he is a true sweet heart such a little lover and he really looks like his daddy and his big sissy!
I just did not like the thought of using blue and white I think that all baby boy cards use them and I wanted something a bit different. So I went with my fave river rock ( I only have 2 pieces left ) and ruby red also a fave (of the reds that is) for my neutral I used very vanilla the DP is from the new preview mini I loved how simple the polka dots were. The stamp set is also from the mini Nursery Necessities so cute!!! I think I will use this set a lot.
this a view of the inside kind of plain but I thought it needed to be I wanted the picture to do the talking I took the pics and random times of random baby things and Thatcher and put the all together in Picasa photo editing it is a simple program downloaded free off of the Internet and it works for me!!!
here is the pic on the inside just so you can see it better I am proud of it his little feet are so cute!!!!!!!!!!
thank you so much for hanging with me while I took my blog brake I need time to get the others and myself used to having a newborn in the house again but I think I will be up and going here again real soon!!!!
I wish I had time to day the FS47 is one of my big time faves and I really wanted to play in here gallery go look look if you have not had the chance I might still find the time to play .

lucky # 27

and the winner is miss gina P and she has a killer blog go see what she has to show
I also want to say thank you to every one who played along I loved reading all of your super funny holiday shopping stories I so needed the laugh I got out of most of them!!!!
here is what gina had to say..........
CONGRATS on the 10K hits!! WOO HOO for you! Okay, so one year I had to go to JoAnn fabrics to get some sort of doo-dad for an emergency project that I needed that day for a gift, and it was the weekend after Thanksgiving (need I go on?), well, I stood in line with people behind me in their jammies, arguing loudly with each other and their teenage daughter about scarves, and then some random and VERY smelly person walked up and stood there watching and I nearly vomited from the smell. All this and I got to literally stand in line for an hour and a half. They had two ladies doing checkout and the line was weaving throughout this store. It was a nightmare, and I was reminded why I don't ever shop on Black Friday or Black Weekend for that matter. YUK!!PS - I'm celebrating 10K with candy too! Check me out and enter to win yourself!!

thank you mommy (my elf)!!!!

What girl out there dose not like new stuff? Well I know that I do, and I have got a lot of it here lately. I just have not really felt much like playing, Till I got this stuff in the mail it was sent to me form "Santa's Little Helper" now I could be wrong but the hand righting looked just like my moms (I don't think I am wrong)!!!! There was new ribbon and I love ribbon, and there was DP (DCWV holiday pack) with a mix of pretty and fun designs two packs of clear studio G stamps and two blocks to mount them on. there was also hot cocoa and other goodies that I have hid in my desk for when I need a fix!!!!! Oh and I cant forget the rub-ons and brads that were also in the pack so I just wanted to say thank you mommy elf!!!
The first card is made with textured CS all in the rich regal colors Rose Red, Bordering Blue, ooops and SS pretty in pink( not rich regal). The DP is from Mommy Elf and DCWV Christmas pack and I think this is the pretty papers I stamped with Bordering Blue on the bottom part of the card the cute little snow flakes (also Studio G) and then added all the goodies like the ribbon brats rub-ons and gem stones and the corner punches!!! hope you like it!!! now the fun designs!!!
this card was also made with all my new goodies and I went with the Bold Bright pallet for this card and the first one with that color group that I like I used Real Red, Glorious green, and Gable green, and I stamped on WW the dear is colored with creamy caramel SU marker and his Sweet little nose is hole punch dropping. You can't really see the rick rack but is there and the green ribbon that is a perfect match is leftovers form my baby shower and the host just gave it to me she was going to through it away (gasp can you believe any one would do that)!!!!! now I think that the only thing that would make this card more to my likeing is the nestabity dies I will be getting my self whit tax money!!!! then all I will NEED is the sew mini........ yes I said NEED!!!

Look I stamped today and if felt so good I have been NESTING yes even with the fourth child I feel the need to make every thing just so. For some reason I got all crazy emotional needing my tree up and the stockings hung just in case I do go into labor right at Christmas time I don't want the older kids to miss out on anything do you think this makes me nuts? I think my DH dose when he comes down stairs at 1:am to find me mopping and folding laundry pretty much at the same time......... yah I can see how that might make me look!!!! oh well some time in the next 20 days this very last child will be out of me and when he dose get here every thing will be ready crazy or not!!!
well tell me what you think of my little 3x3's I think the turned out great and they were so much fun I used merry and bright stamp set and sage shadow and kraft CS the DP is the same gift wrap on all the gifts under my tree!!!
