Baby Day

So today is Baby Day - whether or not our little jelly bean decides to arrive today is yet to be far, it's not looking like it.....
She has already proven over the last 8 months or so that she has a mind and quite the personality all of her own...oh boy, are Glen and I in for it!  :)  And we couldn't be more excited as this new adventure is about to REALLY get underway.

Regardless of whether or not she arrives today, I'll share with you a card I made for today's Bugaboo Stamps, Catch The Bug Recipe Challenge:
BLING, the color TEAL & a Die or Punch.

It's her Birth Day card for when she arrives - and here it is......
Image - Bugaboo Stamps - Birthday Girly
Papers - Doodlebug Design Prints, Kraft & PTI/Micellaneous scrap cardstock
Tools - EK Success Border Punch
Extra STUFF - BLING & Dimensionals

This card, like many that I've made since we found out we were expecting will end up in a special box in her closet for her to read one day when she is older.

Head on over to The Bug Blog and see what other fabulous projects the design girlies created.
You'll be inspired!

Hugs & Happy Days!

Oldie But Goodie - Anniversary Edition

Well, the baby count is down to 9 days till our due date......9 days left to get things organized....
We're both curious if she'll wait for her scheduled day, or if she'll decide to come when we're not expecting her.......we shall see!

Happy Oldie But Goodie Thursday and 
HAPPY 52 Anniversary to my In-Laws!

They'll be celebrating the big day this coming Monday - WOW - 52 years!
So of course there must be a special card to celebrate that milestone......
Here's a little oldie I dusted off

A little nursery sneaky peek!

So the baby's nursery is FINISHED!  And I thought it would be only fitting to share it after all the hours my wonderful hubby and soon to be daddy put into this room.  
Lots of love & TLC and we couldn't be happier with the way it turned out for our little Jelly Bean!
Her large dresser and changing table (of course Hubby's Tommie Tippie for the stinky diapers)

Her rockin' and readin' area :)  The center shadow box says 
"If you want to know how much we love you count the waves in the ocean"
I'll have to take some close up photos of the artwork in her room.

And her sleepin' accommodations
My hubby created the bright colored artwork over the crib - we just LOVE the way it turned out.
That fun orange pink basket just to the right of the crib is one my mom made - all fabric, but a fabulous basket that I'm sure will be filled with toys and other fun stuff very soon!

We just LOVE how it all turned out.  It makes us both smile every time we go in there.  Every thing is so calm, serene and relaxing.  Now all we need is the baby.  :)  
Just a few more weeks!!!
Hugs & Happy Days!

It's an Anything Goes day at Bugaboo and today I thought I'd share with you the Anniversary card I made for my hubby. On August 15, we'll be celebrating our 11 year Wedding Anniversary (and a few weeks later, the birth of our first baby).  Wow, talk about lots of things to celebrate this month!  :)
