It's Not All Black and White

Thursday, October 9, 2008

hi...

You may have noticed that I haven't been posting too regularly lately. I'm really falling behind on my stamping. But I have news! I'm expecting my very first bundle of joy! Though I wouldn't call it joyful right now. I'm so tired, sick, and haven't an ounce of creativity. I forced a few cards today because I NEED to get some deadlines taken care of before they really sneak up on me.

Now after saying my creativity has all been zapped, I must also say...I love this card! And it took me all of five minutes I think. Stamp the three flowers from Lizzie Anne's Floral Frenzy in Old Olive. Adhere American Crafts paper strip. Tie on ribbon. Adhere chipboard letters (already colored and glittered from Making Memories). Pierce a row of holes on bottom. Add a few dots of Star Dust Stickles to the flowers.

Congratulations, Bethany!!!!!!!!!! I can so understand the feeling yucky when your pregnant (especially at first)! Hope this passes very quickly for you! And don't worry about your creativity! This card totally rocks. Plus you will see your creativity re-channeling, as you prepare for the arrival of your little one. I don't give much baby advice because I truly feel you have to do what feels right for you and little one BUT what I do tell every new expecting mom is: Get all the rest you can now!!!!
