I made this card for my friend's son. He turned six a couple of weeks ago and they celebrated on Saturday. I used my SU Pun Fun Set. The swirls are from Technique Tuesday. I embossed them in white and then sponged ink over them to make it look like exhaust. The faux stitching is done with a white gel pen.
I keep forgetting to thank Jenn D. for honoring me with the Arte de Pico award. I watch two extra kiddos on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so my time is short. I will try to fit in my pics sometime this week.
Happy Birthday to Michelle tomorrow if I don't get a chance. I'm gettin an old filling replaced. Yippee! NOT!
PS I didn't do a whole post on Saturday on why I love my baby girl so much, but this pretty much sums it up. Tessa, at two years old.

And here's a silly picture of Jakob, Kate (Tessa's best friend) and Tessa. Tessa's hair is courtesy of her dad, but psst don't tell anyone. He doesn't want anyone to know that HE put the rollers in her hair the night before and helped her lie her head down on her pillow so they wouldn't pull. He's too macho. When I took them out the next morning she had quite the afro, but I tamed it down a lot and she was so happy with it. Pssst also don't tell anyone that When I had longer hair Travis used to put those same rollers in my hair so I could have Shirley Temple hair. He can't stand anyone to know that he would stoop to such feminineness.

I made this card with my new pun fun set. It's just so cute. I had issues with coloring this little guy because the paper was resisting the ink, darn SEI paper. Sage Shadow ink with silk flower and a button. I also used my spiral punch. Hope you all are having a great day!
I just found out that I won a Cuttlebug from LESLI over at Dragonfly Time you should check out her site! She's got amazing sketches( page plans) for scrapbook layouts and cards. Really fun stuff. So my day is going pretty amazingly. Thanks to all who participated in the blog booty giveaway.

I need to give seven interesting facts about myself. Hmmmm...
Blog candy here: The Voices In My Head...Lim's Blog
1. I am Twilight addicted, obsessed, smitten.
2. I eat bran flakes or steele cut oats EVERY morning.
3. I was married here. Like a fairytale princess.
4. I have a bachelors in architecture from here, the sad part is that when I went there it looked like this and wasn't even technically "on campus" it was across the street. They took away a bunch of university parking and built the new SAAP on campus. It's amazing the change that can take place within a couple of years.
5. Every year we go camping on the beach in California with my husband's famly for a week! I LOVE it.
6. I love to cross stitch, my mom taught me at a young age.
7. I speak and understand espanol pretty well.
The card is pretty self explanatory. Delight in Life set by Stampin up in Glorious green and Purely Pomegranate.
I'll be MIA this weekend because there's a SU retreat I'm attending. Ahhhh, a much deserved break.
OH YEAH, DON'T FORGET BLOG CANDY BELOW!!!!

Are you sick of my scrapbook layouts yet? I really do need to make some cards for the store, but I've been having fun with pictures!
This lo is about my daughter, Tessa, who Adores animals...the smaller the better. She loves to cuddle them and love them and squeeze them and call them George, just kidding (Bugs Bunny referance there). I wish this didn't come up so dark here. I used a Heidi Swapp butterfly mask along with my Olive Glimmer Mist to create the look on the left. "Animal" is done with K&Co sticky alphabet rubons and art institute glitter. I also used the glitter around the butterflies. I've been having fun with my labeler too!
I hope you all have a great weekend. Take care.

Here is a lo that I did about the little bundle coming our way. I used a bunch of scraps and a new paper from MM Noteworthy line.
Journaling: "It may not look like much, this little blob, but to me it means the WORLD! Going into the ultrasound I just prayed that there would be a heartbeat. A year ago I never would have imagined that I'd be so scared, I mean I have three healthy children, but we had a wake up call last year. I lost the baby I was carrying and was subsequently diagnosed with hyperthyroid. Months of medication helped me to regulate my thyroid and I was able to conceive again. So began the waiting game...would I be able to keep this baby? Well, here we are three months later and our baby is doing great. I don't even have to take any medication. I'm normal for now. Our little one will join us in September...can't wait."
We had snow yesterday, YES snow in April in New Mexico. I HATE that. Otherwise things couldn't be better. The kids all went to the dentist today and their teeth are GREAT! I feel good today, besides the sciatica. Take care and have a great day!
