Before the shower

thought I'd share a picture before I left for the baby shower...

I'm so excited to share the pix of the actual shower. If you are ever in Richmond, Va, make a visit to Tobacco Company--it's wonderful!

Christmas, invites and more!

Time Well Spent!

I was so excited to use the new set sent FREE to demonstrators. The moment I got it, I mounted it. This morning, it was a reason to roll myself out of bed. That, and I suppose the kids. :-) haha. This is the first card I made with the new set. I used the Scrapbook set called: Confetti, along with the spiral punch, corner rounder, and river rock double stitch ribbon. I also used (for the first time) crystal effects, but it fell over and smeared, so I'll have to re-try that in the very near future. I was just excited to see it put on paper!
