Happy Belated Easter

 Hello all, 

It is hard to believe that Declan is a month old already.  He has his check up and he gained 2 pounds in that time.  He is growing so fast.   Our biggest challenge is that he doesn't sleep for very long.  He is looking for food every 2-3 hours.   It is exhausting, but I know this phase will pass quickly.  I'm trying to soak up all the good things about cuddly newborn.   

I haven't been too busy in my craft room this last month.  I'm sorry for the lack of card related posts.  I hope to get back to crafting very soon.  I'm starting to go through withdrawal.  My fingers are itching to get inky!   In the meantime, I thought I'd share some photos from our Easter photo shoot.    The puppies got in on the fun too. 

I took a bunch of photos because they are only this little once.  If you have a comment click here to email me.  If you his reply to this email, it will get lost in cyber-space.   I took some one month photos too.  I'll share them once I get them edited. 

Hugs to you all,

Chris

24 Carrot Friend

 Greetings,  

Stamp companies are getting to be so creative.  I love how they are making dies that cut out the hands of critters so they can hold various items.  This little bunny is meant to be holding a cup of coffee/tea.  I thought it would be fun fill his arms with carrots.  It pairs perfectly with this sentiment.  It might be my new favorite Easter sentiment.  Gosh it is cute!

Wee Bit of Luck

Hello friends,  

I bought this St. Patty's Day stamp last year and it has been sitting on my table for a full year.   I couldn't let this holiday go by without getting some ink on it.  I just think this frog is super cute!    

It has been a popular idea to cut stipes of paper to decorate part or all of a card.  I thought I'd give it a try. I cut up a bunch of green cardstock and green glitter cardstock.  I wanted them to be all different widths. Then just glued them to the white base until they met the frog's feet.  It was are really easy background to create.
