Trick or Treat *SFYTT*


I can't believe it has been an entire week since I have posted! This was the first week of my kids being off track and I feel like I have spent the week sitting and waiting for them during all of their lessons. I have been back and forth twice each day to the Aquatics Center for them to have their swimming lessons, back up to the park each day for Football Practice, plus dance and tumbling. I thought I was busy while school was in! LOL! Plus...I had two Doctor's appointments this week; one for my 3-D ultrasound and again for my regular monthly appointment. It was fun seeing my baby twice this week! I know that I promised blog candy in connection with finding out the baby's gender, but I just can't wait....we are having a baby BOY!!!!!!!! I am really excited! We have been mulling over names since Tuesday and having a rough time. I think we may have it narrowed down. I think I may do a "baby name" blog candy to make up for spilling the beans without a contest!
So...now that I have finally sat down to stamp, you probably would like to hear about that rather than my crazy week! LOL! I really liked this week's sketch, partly because it had some of last week's elements in it that I really liked. I stopped by the Scrapbook Store on Friday and picked up some fun new Halloween goodies that are for another project, but I couldn't resist cutting into the paper for today's card. All of the papers are by My Mind's Eye (The Spider's Web collection) and they are yummy. I also pulled out this darling image from American Art Stamps that I got while I was in the Dirty Dozen an it hasn't seen ink since. I decided to keep the focal image neutral and not add any other colors than what was in the paper. Then sentiment was created on my computer and printed out onto white cardstock. I did a little bit of sewing and added some chunky essentials glitter from SU!. The black button is tied onto the ribbon with crochet thread and then I added another pumpkin button with glue dots. I simply cut off the part that you thread from the back using my craft and rubber scissors. They are perfect for cutting metal, plastic and other materials.

My son has an exciting football game today; we are playing another undefeated team! Go Thunder!!!!!!!!!

Congrats on your baby boy--boy, do I know how much fun they are!! So happy for you, Kelly!

This card is just unbelievable and you know how partial I am to those skinny legged AAS images. The papers, the sentiment and the chunky glittered edges are just TDF!!!

Congratulations Kelly! That is so exciting that you're having a boy! At least now you know what color you can do the nursery and you have the luxury of time to decide on a name.
