My little girl...

I know most of you are on Facebook and have seen these, but I thought I'd post for the non-FBers.

My first grandchild was born today at 9:23 a.m. Her name is Cadence and she weighed 6 lbs., 11 oz. 19 inches long. She's a little peanut! We just got back from the hospital. I held her for a long time and just stared. She's adorable. She has my son's eyes and cute little nose and her mom's gorgeous lips - not that I'm partial or anything!! LOL She's a little marked up right now. Can't wait until she comes home on Friday!

No sleep, hiatus and one more friggin candle...

I am so tired today. I went to bed at 10(very early) and the thunderstorm woke me up around 11:30. Got up again at 1:30 and then at 3:30. I could not sleep after that. I shut my alarm off before it went off at 6. Luckily I have a semi easy day.

I've been thinking of taking a hiatus from blogging. I just don't think it's worth my time. Let's face it, I'm not winning any competitions with my cards (and don't want to be), I'm not interested in being on any DTs even if I had the talent, I don't like making cards that require a box for shipping, etc. I truly enjoy making simple cards that my family and friends enjoy. I think I may spend more time actually stamping and scrapping if I just quit posting. I like to browse blogs and I'll probably continue to do so, but who knows. My granddaughter will be coming any time now and she'll be taking more time away too. I cannot wait to hold her and all the other fun things. I'll probably post when she's born and share a photo or two.

For now, here are two simple cards I made. The first is for my 10 yo. nephew Zach who is very young minded. The cute robot is from Lost in Paper Scraps.

I made this with a Bugaboo stamp (just love their images!!). Inside it says, "What's One More Friggin Candle?" This is for my good friend who turned 50 today. So glad she finally caught up to me! LOL

Chicken on you...

I have to apologize once again, I don't have the source of this cute chicken on my home computer but I'm pretty sure it's Back to Paper. I made it for a friend who is dealing with family issues after losing her mom. **Ok, now I feel really stupid. I just realized it's not a chicken, it's a goose!! I guess I don't know my farm animals very well.

What a gorgeous day out today! We had breakfast on the deck and I sat in the sun to work on my tan (bad, I know). I was sweating when I came back in!
There's a gorgeous breeze and it's nice and dry out, but man that son is hot!!! I need to clean so I can get out to the pool. Hopefully it'll warm up between now and then. It's only 70!!!

It's a circus....

A friend of mine was invited to a wedding and it's a circus theme. I can't even imagine that! They sent out tickets as an invitation. I can't wait to see the pictures. I heard the ushers were wearing Converse High Tops. Anyway, she asked me to make a circus wedding card. HUH?!! This is all I could come up with. I used a cute elephant image from Lost in Paper Scraps.

We had a big family cookout over the weekend and had lots of fun with family from MI, NH and MA. The kids enjoyed the pool and the adults had fun mingling. I'm still trying to recover.
