HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Gosh, it's so hard to believe we are about to start 2010...
I played along with Laura's sketch #42 from 2 Sketches 4 You... and they also suggested the colors, too - red, black & silver!
The houndstooth paper (Night & Day Specialty DSP) & cardstock is from Stampin' Up! I can tell I'm going to have to stock up on that Night & Day paper before it retires! The buttons are from the Playground Deisnger set and I also used the Daisies Flower #2 Bigz Die for the red 'burst' behind the stamped image. The stamp is from Lizzie Anne's December Mix Stamp set, which I stamped in Silver Encore onto black cardstock & embossed with Iridescent Ice Stampin' Emboss powder.
Anyone have any resolutions? I'm hoping to get back into some semblance of reasonable shape after I have the baby... I'd also like to keep my stamping stuff better organzied (if you're reading this Jeff (and stop rolling your eyes), I PROMISE I'll clean up the dining room this weekend!). My third resolution is to spend more time outside in the yard & garden, so my mom doesn't have to come & clean up my flowerbeds in the spring & fall - mom, you can stop rolling your eyes, too!
A last note... as of today I am officially 2 weeks away from delivering Maisie Grace. Please pray for our family, that she will be very patient & not come out until I tell her to. My parents are leaving for a week-long cruise tomorrow (yeah, I know, it was my dad's brilliant idea... he's such a MAN) and they won't get back until the evening of the 9th. I am scheduled to have Maisie via c-section on the 14th. I am trying very hard not to panick & be stressed out. So again, please remember us in your prayers.
Bye for now!
