Gathering Together

Hello Stampers! Life has been wild and crazy busy. My dad is out of town for a week, so Sunday and Monday I went to spend with my mom. Then she stayed with us Monday and Tuesday night. I feel like I'm almost constantly running to some doctor or another. I had my first appointment with my obstetrician. I had been seeing a specialist during the early weeks of my pregnancy. Last weekend, a chunk of one of my teeth cracked off. So I had to get a crown done. And today I got my Invsalign braces. I thought I would be wearing them for a year, so I was very excited today to find out it will only be five months. Woo Hoo! And perhaps best of all, I've gone a whole week now without being queasy!!! Things are looking up!
And, yes, I actually have a card to share with you. I used these two cuties from Storage Units, Ink, not to mention their little squirrel friend. I thought they would look great with these Webster's Pages papers. I stamped the boy and squirrel, then masked them to stamp the little girl. Then colored it all with my Copic markers. Ialso colored the brown and orange primas with my Copics to match.

Thanks for stopping by. Love ya peeps!
