Cutest Pumpkin in the Patch!

Happy Halloween!
Right now (among a million other things) I am working on a "Baby's First Year" calendar for Aiden.  So far I have done the first 3 months and I was going to show you August first but I just loved the October page so much I had to show it first.  You will notice that the candy corn card was what I made last week.  I decided to use it on this layout along with the Petities Pennant builder punch from Stampin' Up to do the "Boo".  I used the owl punch to make the owls.  I just had a blast making this.  Fall is my favorite time of the year not to mention my little guy is just the cutest pumpkin that has ever been in the patch!  We had so much fun dressing him up and taking his picture.  He was really smiling and having fun!  Thanks for stopping in!

Grateful For Many Things!

Hi everyone!  Here is a really simple card that I plan on making for Thanksgiving.  I just love that "Grateful" stamp that is in the Falling Leaves set.  I have been using it a lot this year because there are so many things that I am grateful for this year.  The leaf is a die from Provo Craft that has a matching embossing folder.  Okay so speaking of being grateful, here is a picture of what I am most grateful and thankful for....Mr. Aiden :).
He just loves tummy time!
  • Falling Leave Stamp Set
  • Big Shot with the Top Note Die and the Finial Press Embossing Folder
  • Early Espresso Satin Ribbon
  • Ink:  Early Espresso
  • Paper:  Early Espresso, Cajun Craze
  • Word Window Punch
  • Fall Designer Paper from last year (Sorry, it is retired but I love it!)
Non SU
  • Leaf die and emboss set from Provo Craft
Have  a super weekend!

These Boots Are Made for Witches!

Hey everyone!  I was so excited to make this card because I found this cute pumpkin border punch at Jo Ann made by EK Success.  It is a little hard to see it because I made the card so that the pumpkins fold up and over the bottom.  :) 
Here is a cute fall pic of my sweet little Aiden. 
He is not quite sitting on his own yet (he is 10 weeks!) so I had my hand on him holding him up and took it away just as I snapped this pic.  So you can tell he is starting to lean! LOL!  He is sitting on an antique school desk in my living room.  I thought he looked so adorable next to the scarecrow.  And he must have been Ohio State's good luck charm because we actually won!
Anyway here are my supplies for the card:

Stamp Set:  Wicked Cool
Paper:  Peach Parfait, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, and a random piece from my scrap box
Ink:  Old Olive
Stampin Up Chalks were used to color in the socks on the boots.
The ribbon is from Bazzill and I used nesties for the circles and scallops. 
Have a super day and thanks for stopping in!

Finally Crafting!

Hey everyone!  This picture shows why I haven't been posting!  LOL!  I made an entire card one-handed today.  As soon as my husband got home I told him to come take a picture of me crafting! He laughed because of me holding Aiden and how messy my craft space is! With only one hand I had to decide if I was going to clean or craft and I chose craft.
I have gotten some great emails from some of you and I want to say thank you!  I really have not had any time to craft but I decided that today was the day! :)  I took Aiden and went down to my craft room.  He slept for all of 20 minutes so I had to hold him and try to work on a Halloween card with the other.  He is NOT light.  We went to the Dr. last week and he was almost 13lbs then.  I can't believe he is 9 weeks old already!  Time is sure flying and I am loving every single second that I am home with him.  So I will post the card that I made tomorrow and I am already working on another one.  I would like to post at least 3 times a week because I have really missed it. 
Here is a picture of my smiling cutie! See why I can't put him down while I craft??  He just melts my heart and I have to hold him. 
Thanks for stopping by and to all of you who have continued to keep in touch and continued to come to my blog.
